    I can see why the women would be frustrated. However, if she hasn't paid for the horse in full then I would think she would be a little more tolerant. After all you are working with her as well. I wouldn't cancel the sale over of this.
    Explain your situation again, set a date that you can realistically transport him, and as the others said make sure it happens. If she wants him sooner than that, tell her then she will have to arrange suitable transportation.

    I agree with flytobecat. If I were the buyer I would be worried that my money was going to disappear. I understand you feel hassled, but leaving the buyer completely in the dark seems cruel. If she hadn't given you any money, I would agree that that would be your prerogative, but she has. And that does mean something.

    Yes she hasn't paid him in full. I told her if she wants him there earlier than the 22nd she will have to arrange transportation.

    Do you have a signed paper contract outlining that she's paid X amount, and still owes X amount? What about if something (Heaven forbid) happens to Sammy? I can really understand the buyer being nervous - she doesn't know you from Joe, and until the horse is on her property, she really doesn't have any control. While the frequent contact might be annoying, please put yourself in her shoes; wouldn't you be nervous if you were 3 1/2 hours from a horse that you had put money down on?
    Perhaps you might want to call her and just set the record straight, and let her know that she's absolutely welcome to hire a hauler to deliver Sammy to her sooner.
    Don't get me wrong here, either - we all know that you're trustworthy, but they don't know that :)

    I actually can understand the buyer in some way. I was in similar situation: paid -in full- for my horse, and they couldn't deliver her to me for quite a while for different reasons. While I did NOT call, email, eta-eta-eta (as I always feel uncomfortable to bother people), I was basically running crazy thinking I could be ripped off (because I didn't know the people, and they were couple hours away etc.).

    In your situation I can't even advice anything except telling her that you can arrange the delivery by the company and so the BUYER would pay for it (there are plenty of hauling companies in my area, costly - yes, but if you want him right away - pay!).

    I also can see both sides, just as stated above. However, I would let her know that she is more than welcome to get you the balance and make her own arrangements. (once you have the $$).

    I called her an explained everything I assured her I was going to get him to her on the 22nd and no later. She apologized for getting so frustrated and I explained I understood her position and he would be there. She said she understood I didn't have many other options and said she knew I wasn't trying to screw her out of a horse. She said she is just really excited toget him and was never good at waiting.

    She said to keep her posted on him and I said I would see her on the 22nd so hopefully things are resolved.
