    I am so sorry that it didn't work out for you but I commend you for changing your mind and not taking her home anyway with delusions that you can cure her of every problem. Don't get discouraged, there are only about a billion other horses out there and right now, it's a buyer's market. Just keep your chin up and keep looking. You'll find the one that is right for you.

    Thanks. It just confirmed my theory that the only ones people feel like parting with are the ones with..um...put nicely..issues .
    It was sorta like a nightmare..Watching this previously mellow mare go NUTS. I had a big envelope of cash in myhand...I had this vision of myself, in a hospital bed in a few weeks, in a full body cast. Or limping into my classes on crutches. I knew I would screw up her training too. I know that you can work one out of charging, etc, but I really would rather not buy something had this "i want you blood" glint in it's eyes, ya know?
    Walking away, or rather, DRIVINGAWAY with the empty trailer was one of the toughest things I;ve done in a long time. But I knew I had to.
    It also sucks because she is by far one of the MOST GORGEOUS paint I've seen in a very long time. Any horse I look at after this (and yes..the craiglist addicts are still responding to my ad) are just..well..quite frankly ugly after her. Not to be shallow. But why did it have to be the gorgeous one that was nuts? Oh well.
    I'm learning horses are alot like my experience with guys: the ones that seem to good to be true ALWAYS are. And as soon as I commit to one things get ugly. Lolololol.

    Sorry that it didn't work out for you. I understand how hard it is to get so worked up over getting something only to be disappointed. Sounds like it was for the best though if she's acting like that.

    Hope you can find a horse soon. I am not sure if there are any training facilities nearby, but maybe they can help you. Some instructors have connections and can find you a horse that meets your level.

    Good luck!

    Wow, I can hardly believe that. He seriously misrepresented that horse, to the expense of your time and travel cost. Not to mention anyone else who had come out to see her. What a bummer for you, and kudos to you for walking away!

    HUGE kudos to you! I also can relate to how you feel. I had wanted a paint for a really long time. I tri color tobi.....mostly color. Anyway, I found one, went a couple times to see and ride-LOVED him. Had him vetted, put my deposit down, went home to prepare. Lady emailed me about a week later-the day beofre I was supposed to pick him up (again about 2 hrs away) and she sold him to her sis-in-law! I could NOT believe it! She refunded my deposit, but I lost my vet $$. I have never heard of such a thing. Was she not your sis-in-law LAST week, before I bought the horse? Did she not know you were selling? Anyway-furious. Took me some time, but I found Guinness. Totally wonderful, and every bit as pretty but no, not a paint. And that is ok. I am over it. Lol

    From what I remember form other family members whom where into breding them little ones will mind the family before a stranger so the fact that you could get a command across is just from him having her for 5 years while you are a complete stranger... in the past since I am a older lady of 49 years the buyer would go not just once to see the horse but a few times to see how the horse took them like daily for a week or every other day ... that's why getting something close is best .. specially if the cost is what one is worried about... I am from lines of ranchers rodeo and grove owners... I been around them all my life ....
