    If you have a bill of sale and there are no written conditions, I would say you're done having to deal with the seller.

    Honestly, I doubt that she'd ever come out and visit her. I've been told I can go visit every horse we've ever sold, anytime I want, and I've never done it. I've also told people I purchased horses from they can come visit, but they never take me up on it.

    But, I'd definitely mail the lead rope back to them. No sense in wasting gas and your time dropping it off.

    Apparently my husband is (STRONGLY) of the opinion that we gave our word that she could come and see the horse. Sigh. Sounds like the appointment to see her will stand. But I will let her know on no uncertain terms that this is NOT an open door to drop by any time. I don't like the idea of this girl even knowing where we live. But Kev has a point I suppose.

    Yeah...... I don't like that idea either.

    Act wacko yourself when she visits. Tell her you think it is not in the horse's best emotional interest for her prior owner to have any contact.

    OP-If your husband feels more strongly about respecting this ladies wishes than the way she has treated you-I would let HIM have all future dealings with her. Period. I am SO glad my DH has nothing to do with my horses. What I do with them and anyone associated with them is strictly MY doing.

    I would not ever let her visit, nor would I want her to know where the horse is. Most people are fine. This lady has proven to you she is not. Guess I am a bit extra cautious because there is a hoarder case going on right now not too far from here. Lady had a bunch (72 to be exact) horses she could not care for. More $$ than god (trust fund baby) and when and if she ever parted with a horse-people who were the new owners would wake up to find her sleeping in their barn-randomly-everywhere around the country. I would not want that, nor would I want to have to worry about someone like this somehow deciding I was not caring for the horse as they thought I should and deciding to take it back....which also does happen.

    I agree with franknbeans. And from a person who deals with the public, I would tell you there are more crazy people out there than most of us realize and they are nuttier than we can imagine. Your alarms are going off and your instincts are telling you to keep this woman away. Horse women must listen to their instincts! Tell your husband this. And if he still insists on allowing her to visit, be somewhere else.

    I am not saying anything bad about your husband I am applaud his ethics of gave his word, butttttttttttttt. When she started this crap with you, she forfeited that right and I believe he should back you up. Who knows, your safety could be at risk. Certainly your peace of mind already has been compromised! That's my two or three cents.

    Pick up the horse, use your own lead and let her know her leads are at the trainers place if she wants. Then cut any and all contact with this person, mark her email as spam so you don't even see it hit the in box. Our wives never listen to us anyway and so we are used to it. Just make this one more time you don't listen to him!

    Actually I do listen to my husband. I just try really hard to convince him to agree with me! LOL. I do like him to have my back in our partnership tho.
