I recently sold a horse to a man in another state. He was determined he wanted THIS horse...and wanted me to deliver it too. I asked him to please come see the horse and try him out but he stated he was in NY and would not be back in GA for a week but after emailing pics and a short video he said he wanted him and I asked or a deposit PLUS cost of vet check up front (feeling leery he was being so demanding) Emailed him a contract he printed, signed and overnighted with a check for deposit but not for vet check. We had a conversation thru texts and via phone because I was not comfortable he was already breeching contract. He stated he was upset over deposit amount and REALLY wanted this horse for his daughter so asked how we could work thru this issue. I finally broke down and agreed to accept remainder of payment and vet check fee PLUS hauling fee (which was VERY MINIMAL...$150 for a 5 hr drive ONE WAY!!) when we brought the horse to him. We showed up as planned Saturday (a little early and waited for over and hr for him to arrive. We unloaded the horse AFTER he arrived and he and his teenage daughter did not even have a clue what a lunge line was, as they bought one thinking it was a lead line. I told this man over and over that I will NEVER claim a horse is bomb proof or child safe because it is an animal with a brain and 4 legs. We lunged the horse, trotted him up and down the road and his daughter took the horse for a walk thru the fields. We were there a good hour with him and the horse and he never voiced a concern about the horse. Just as we are getting back home (5 hrs later) he calls and says the horse is lame!! I asked what happened to him and he said nothing, you sold me a lame horse!!....for hours afterwards he harrasses me and my vet that did the vet check, threatening and harrssing us finally stating in a text his daughter was thrown from the horse and he just can't have her getting hurt so "come get the horse". He stated he had a 3 day period in which to return the horse. I have never heard of this. He then claimed I was a "horse BUSINESS" and he was a CONSUMER and I HAVE TO REFUND HIS MONEY and come get the horse!! First I do NOT operate a horse selling business. This was a horse I was aquired and I am a mare type person. He was too big of a horse for me as well as a gelding. He never showed signs of lameness with me or his former owner. Now this man is suing me for violating the Tennessee Consumer Protection Act. How is this possible??? Im not a business. He signed a contract with NO warrantees or guarantees and my vet found the horse sound just days before the trip. ....I do not even know how to go about finding a lawyer for this issue.....HELP!!! I feel it is buyer beware and his daughter is afraid of the horse and now I am getting sued because he has money. Suggestions???? OH yeah and I kept ALL his emails and texts too!!
