Hi, I'm not ready to hit auctions unless I brought my coach with me for guidance and knowledge of what to look for. I prefer being able to take the horse out for a ride and if possible trial it. Not too mention a vet check.

Besides I'd probably want to buy too many at an auction. I just couldn't do it. lol.

So, we will keep on with our search. We're actually going to ride a few tomorrow. Wish me luck.

I agree with those who said to cut all contact. Techie sons are wonderful, everyone should have one. She probably wants to see what the vet says and I can imagine her stalking the vet then. The vet won't tell the owner what the exam says, did you know that? That's why she has to ask you.

I have a techie boyfriend, and he's awesome lol. I'm glad that you have moved on, and weren't willing to play her games. It sounds like she was just looking for more trouble, wanted to get the vet report so she could some how refute it and say something was wrong with the report not the horse. People like that bug me. I'm glad that you did tell her though that you were no longer interested, that was a very nice thing to do, that I don't hear very often. In selling my horses, I never once had anyone tell me after saying they'd consider it, and call me back tell me that they were no longer interested. They just never called back to let me know if they wanted to schedule a PPE or anything.

haha I know what will I do when they both move out? I agree dressagebelle...she was wanting to dispute the vet report and carry this on. I think I'm a pretty good horse buyer in regards to communication. We ask a lot of questions, go for a ride, get a PPE and then if all works out we would purchase. But if it doesn't we let the seller know. I hope we find him one soon. The two we looked at on Sunday did not appeal to us. One was listed as a 15.3hh but was more of a 14.3...way too small for my hubby. lol

I would not panic to the point of cutting all contact. It seems she sent you a request and you said no and she explained why she wanted it.

I think it is fair to tell her she can have the vet report if she reimburses you for it.

He is a ex racer and he had a few issues with nose bleeds after exertion, low level heart murmur and hooves slightly toed out. All of which the vet told us is not too significant at his age for now (6) and for using him as a trail horse.

But we have decided to keep looking because there are so many other horses out there for sale that don't have heart issues that MAY turn into something more as he ages.

Anyway, this seller keeps contacting me via email after we said we have lost interest. Telling me over and over, how he can be ridden by anyone, blah, blah, and that he won two endurance races. Now I get an email that she wants me to fax her my paid copy of the vet report because "she wants to compare it to another report she has". So, did someone else vet him and he failed too? I told her she can have it if she pays me for it. I'm not sure what she is up to but I notice she has changed her ads. The gelding is now being offered as a "lesson horse" or a "therapy horse" and for cheaper price and then she upped her mare for sale by a grand. I'm losing patience. I have even told her I find her lack of concern regarding her gelding after she told me she's going to enter him in 7 endurance races this year. The vet said anything more strenuous than trail riding, his heart issue should be looked into more in depth.

If she wants the report she should reimburse me, correct?
I agree if she wants the report, she should pay for it.
Stay away from her.

Getting the height wrong seems to be a common trend with sone sellers! I hope you find the right one for your husband soon.

Hello, I offered her the option to reimburse me for the report but she declined and wished me luck on my search. After that I have no clue if she contacted me because her email is blocked.

Thanks, I hope we find him one too. I'm expanding my search, so maybe....
