I've called animal control MANY times. Only made it harsher on the horses when animal control did nothing. If link isn't working, go to photobucket, find user Speedyheart, album Tiger Lily

Let's cut to the chase. Keep waving more money in their faces until they can't say no.

To them it's just business.

She's a lovely little mare. I'd lowball them and see what it would take. Offer $250 and they'll say "oh no, we wouldn't sell her for less than $XXX." Then hand them $XXX. Hope you have a much better home for her and give her the TLC she needs!
Good luck!

She's the most amazing thing, she only has one habit, and it's not even too bad except for making me feel bad - she'll grab my shirt when I'm leaving lol. Easily correctable. I really love this filly - heck, my dad knew I love horses and sent me a pic when she was an hour old! I wish I still had it so I could show you guys! I've loved her since I first laid eyes on her. Most the time I like registered horses because I like to see their ancestors. Even if it's just made up of horses no one has ever heard of! I need to get a translator as well. I won't ask their daughters to translate for me, so, I'll bring someone who knows Spanish fluently. I hate those neighbors. Worst owners ever. They breed their boxer at every heat. They dock the tails with a rubber band, and taught their youngest daughter to hit the dogs - and I mean hit/kick - if he was runnin around. Did I mention the dog is a 6 month old boxer? They call him Peepee Boy because he pees when they hit him. I call him Koa so he at least has a true name. If I had somewhere, I'd take him to. But my ma is allergic to dogs

Well good luck!
I'm a bargain hunter and I've never paid asking price for ANYTHING where I could negotiate. The people who owned my gelding wanted $550 and I got them down to $350 delivered even though I had $1,500 in my pocket! So I'd keep working on them. If you can point out her lack of training and see what the meat price for an untrained filly goes for in your area, that would help. I'm pretty sure they'd go for it. You say they race these horses??? They really don't look like TB's and where can you race an unregistered horse?

They Are QH/TB so, Appendixes. Someone owns a "track" basically a long stretch of dirt where they race any other horse. Only ones not allowed are OTTBs. Private owned, you win $$, can bet, etc. that's where these guys go to race - no rules either

I'd only offer $100/$200 for an unregistered, unstarted, thin filly. You never know.
They will probably counter for more and then I'd split that in half and stay firm. They will come back to you in a few days if they need the money, probably 30% more than your second offer, I'd then counter back going to 15% more than second offer. You'll probably get her then, but who knows!
Make sure you state that she still needs to be trained and gotten in shape. You can also say how there are dozens of other fillies you've looked at in that price range. I would be careful not to compliment her too much, but say that you'd like to give her a good home!

Alright - I think I'm going to say this - I'm interested in buying that filly you have. I like her, and It would mean a lot to me If you'd sell her to me. I'd like to offer $250 for her because she's so young and untrained. - hows that sound?
