I purchased my horse from a lady who "rescued" a horse from the previous owner. This previous owner had to sell him in order to buy feed for his other horses. He wasn't in good condition at the time.
Is it rude if I ask her the name of his previous owner? She did not disclose his name (nor did I ask) when I bought him. I am curious about his past and that is my reason for wanting to contact the previous owner. I just wonder if it is none of my business or if it is perfectly acceptable to ask this information.
