LMAO FINCH

Okay heres my 2 cents worth

No contract no case period. and to me 3 inches is no big deal still hurts when you hit the ground. Maybe he would make a nice sire for sport ponies which by the way bring some really good money.
I highly doubt a well reputable stable as mention ed would be lazy in their sales and contracts.
and my god knock it off with sue happy people thats the reason insurance keeps sky rocketing everyone is out for a quick buck.

If he is healthy and sound good. 3 inches no big deal now if it was a minature then maybe worth getting panties in a wad JMHO

When I worked at a training barn, a paint stud came in. The people who had him bought him sight unseen from florida and had him shipped straight to this barn for training in nebraska. They FINALLY came to see this horse for the first time a few weeks in when the horse was showing signs of lameness (ended up being navicular cysts)..... Now Im assuming they didnt have a PPE done on him other wise the NC's would've been seen and either dealt with /or they would have not purchased him.... And apparently he was not near as tall as was advertised and he had a huge head (camera angles hid that apparently:)- sweet sweet boy but NOT breeding quality. These people had no recourse. SOOO my guess is you don't either..

If it were me, I would NOT have sent them the whole amount period...if they push for that BS (being as the horse was unseen) than that makes me want to back away from the horse in question. Also I would have made sure that whom ever was in charge of that sale was there to answer questions ect when I went to pick that horse up. Also, SORRY but I cant help but question your breeding practices/ knowlege, when your willing to forgo a PPE on a horse that plan on using for breeding. Its one thing to be unsound due to injury or early sickness,Its entirely different to be unsound due to some wacked out conformation...this is something you find out in a PPE/ also a breeding soundness exam is a must..horses can carry some icky things!!

I have a few concerns here. You are more concerned about height than soundness in a horse to be used for breeding . You took home a horse with no papers . you pain in advance, you did not do a prepurchse exam. You spoke to previous owners and never questioned his height (your main concern)
i think you priorities for a stallion are skewed, and should have the horse gelded.
amp23 and Copperhead like this.

If you are shocked at what makes it out of my head into sharing territory, you, like me, would be medicated if you knew what I am actually thinking most of the time!😄
