I have the money for the first two payments saved up for this horse. I've been talking to the seller on pretty much almost every other day. The only problem is the horse is an hour away and the only way I can go out and test ride him is next weekend when my dad doesn't have to work. The lady said that this Saturday a women is coming with a down deposit. But.... then she asked if I can come during the week. So I don't know if she'll "save" him for me. My dad says that we should just transfer a money order to her tomorrow. We've seen pictures and videos of him so my dad is sold on that.
But then again my dad thinks the seller might be just saying that these people are coming out so we will come out faster. For instance, when I first told her I couldn't come out during the week she said that some people looked at him the night before and they liked him. Then when I said I could possibly come out this weekend she said the people changed their mind because of financial problems. Then when I had to tell her we couldn't go out this weekend because of work she said the people were still interested in him and then I hear about this women coming on Saturday.
It makes me question why would she ask if I can come out during next week if this horse is pretty much "sold" to the women coming out Saturday?
What should I do? Send the money order before the other women comes? Or do you think the seller is just saying this so I'll come out sooner? I really have my heart set on this horse and I'm afraid that he's going to slip out of my grasp.
Please, give me your advice
