Yeah, it's a pain. That happened to me. It was about a seven hour drive, too, and I asked if the mares had any visible scars/injuries that would prevent them from showing Halter and they assured me they didn't.
I get there and both mares had wire cuts all over their back legs and one had halter marks along her whole face.
I ended up taking them both home with me, but I was pissed. I wasn't paying cheap, either, and you flat out get lied too? They were too good of horses to pass up, but it makes me wonder about horse people sometimes...
