And that fact is your way to lower the price if you see her and like her. Offer $1500.00 and be willing to go to $2,000, again if you like what you see. Also in the art of negotiating you make a final offer and tell them it is good until......(put in date) and then say otherwise she can keep the mare over the winter.
I am a hard negotiator but it works in this market as it is a buyers market.
Do the same sort of offer ( whatever you feel is right) if you like the gelding and put an expiry date on that offer, with conditions that if an offer on a previous seen horse comes through first then your offer on this one is null and void.
I can be rather mean.
