Take away the fact that this was a friend of yours. Its pretty much irrelevant at this point.

You purchased a horse without requesting a PPE from an unbiased vet. Buyer beware. And honestly, red flags should have gone up when she said she was having one particular joint injected. That's not preventative, that's treatment.

Oh I agree she was deceitful in the sale, however you have no signed contract, just emails and with those, there is mitigating circumstances. I really doubt you would recoup all your expenses back through the courts.

From what I gather...the seller doesn't have to divuldge any info, but cannot be dishonest if asked specific questions. I'm under the impression I fall under this category and have the emails and texts to prove it, and the fact she said she'd take him back. I don't know why she won't release the x-rays she has had done...unless she knows it'll be game over for her.

So, you didn't want advice you just wanted people to say go ahead and sue her?

Why is everyone so lawsuit happy? What happened to taking responsibility for your actions?

I HAVE been in your shoes. I bought a horse and was told numerous things about his vet care and past history. Found out it was all lies not long after I had to put him down due to an injury that had occurred 5 years earlier that I had not been informed about. I very much know what its like to be duped, I lost a horse because I was duped. Still MY fault for not having a PPE done.

Mitigating circumstances are just that-she could come up with excuses to a judge to offset the action, happens all the time and most judges not familiar with horses, could take those circumstances into consideration at a loss to you.

Having defended a justified lawsuit in another thread, I do have to agree with the majority here. If there was no contract guaranteeing the horse's soundness, go ahead and try to get what you feel you deserve, but I doubt you will get far. As for trusting family and friends, not in this world I'm afraid. Always get it in writing.

Great advice Gremmy. It doesn't cost much to take her to small claims and try. The friendship is probably in the toilet regardless....
