Remember, this is for your legal protection.
No joking. It has taken me two weeks to get a hold of the previous owner and I just got yelled at by her. She also says she can't find her registry paperwork and that the horse I received never was registered. How does one register a horse that has never been registered? Got the bill of sale signing set up for Sunday though. At 9 a.m. On Sunday, my mare with be officially MINE!
I just wan this over with.
