And so is your purebred horse with the lost papers or the papers that have never been turned in. If you don't have registration papers with a signed transfer ready to go with those papers that horse is not a registered horse even if it is a purebred!

I've seen them recently where the ad has multiple pics of the horse at unflattering angles, running around free like a playful baby or artful stuff that would be nice on a calendar, but when you ask the owner to get you a simple profile shot of the horse square, you get the reply of "oh, all my best pics are in the ad."

I've been shopping for a pony ( to become a school horse) and holy crap.

ad and owner over the phone say one price I get their and price has gone up $3000 and the pony shrunk 3 hands. yes, it did price change that much!

Drove 3 hours and pony was cripple lame (quite beginner pony, maybe cause it can't play up?) sure, I'll pay $4000 for that......

we now looking for a pony 6 hours away next weekend when we go house hunting. don't get me started on that shopping experience thus far......
