Quick question about brand inspectors

I trying to buy a horse out of state. In colorado. Its been ongoing and the owner apparently is mad its taking so long. Her comment the other day, "WISH YOU COULD.PAY BOARD!" (On a horse she's had for.8 years. And who has been for sale nearly 2.) Is not my fault were waiting on the vets coggins results! The results should be in monday. And then the shipper.will.pick.her.up.this week.
Today.the owner wrote me again. In all capitals (if you want to yell at me...do it in person or in this case over the phone. Email.is the tool of a coward.) Anyways she wrote: "THIS WEEK WOULD BE GOOD EXCEPT YOU HAVEN'T PAID ME ANYTHING AND THE BRAND INSPECTOR.HASN'T COME OUT." Now, I would never take he horse wiyout payig first. Im waiting for coggins results before I dish out the money into her bank account! AND WHAT DOES A BRAND INSPECTOR HAVE TO DO FOR A HORSE? IS IT REQUIRED BEFORE SELLING? Im just pisses at this point. This lady has been nothing but hostile

Poultrygirl, I think crossing state lines requires health certificate/ownership papers which are different in each state. I'm guessing that the state brand inspector has to provide evidence that this horse is owned by the lady and she has the right to sell/ship. You have a good relationship with your shipper; I think they will know the answer to your questions as they have to hold on to the papers during the shipping. Good luck with all this - it's good to hear that the vet finally got out there! The hard part's almost over...don't forget to keep sending the lady information about your progress so that she (maybe) isn't so crabby! Good luck!

Thanks Ladytrails. I guess I can understand her being in a pinch and wanting payment and the horse outta there as soon as possible, but it's not like I'm not TRYING! Everything's just taking forever
It's just been a really long last few days--in the past five days I have managed to get my truck towed while I was in the library, had to run a couple miles on foot to class, made it there late, teacher pointed me out stopped class and wanted me sing even though I was shivering, sweating and my nose wouldnt stop running. He wouldnt stop laughing at me. Humiliating. Then went and got my truck and spent $$$ TO GET IT OUT DUE TO MY OWN STUPIDITY! Ugh. Long week. Cranky people haven't helped.
And that's a good point. I contacted the shipper about brand inspectors--she's calling her driver, who's been raised in CO, to find out more as well.
