Yes these are all the things that have been worrying me! Especially the legal side - how could I prove she was mine if I needed to?
I was starting to second guess my instincts; I had a pony as a young teenager but that was way before passports were introduced and my parents bought him. So buying is very new to me.
I want to do things right, but the seller kind of talked so fast that I was feeling like "hmm maybe I'm in the wrong here".
Gagh - why can't people just be as simple as horses? Seriously, this horse has been advertised for several months, so they have had time to change paperwork over to their names. But they didn't want to pay to do this, apparently.
The most recent thing? The seller offered to take my details, sell me the horse, KEEP the passport and send it off to be changed for me?!
Yeah, I'm really uncomfortable.
I think I will pass on this horse. She is lovely, but there are too many question marks.
Really glad of the feedback; I was getting so mixed up about it all that I wasn't trusting myself any more!
