Hey guys, I am in the process of buying a new horse, we have both agreed on the price, and are just in the process of working out trailering details. When I talked to the owner, she had a bill of sale written up already, and I told her that I was underage (17) and didn't now if legally I could sign it or if I needed to get my parents to sign.
My parents are not horse people, and they are quite busy so I'd be nearly impossible for them to find a time drive a few hours to this horse just to sign a piece of paper and go home, though I did say I would ask them if really needed.
My question is, if both parties know that I am under 18, and have agreed that my signature is fine for the bill of sale, from a legal stand point, will the bill of sale be binding (is that the right word?) if something was to happen?
