Also, the horse is already at my boarding facility (has been for a month on the 10th).
When you call and say "id like to buy her- and I would like to offer you $1500."
You want to be interested, but eager. If she counters back something, bring up the rearing and how feel that is a danger but you feel you can "work with it". If I know horse people- which I do, she is NOT going to want to pack up that horse and lose a sale and go through this WHOLE process again for a measly $300 dollars.
Maybe you offer her $1550 or $1600 instead, it sounds a little bit closer to what she was asking and its kind of in the middle of what you BOTH want.
