Didn't she say her farrier told her about a horse they had for sale after the deal with the mare?
I don't sell horses, but I do breed and sell ball pythons (which can be quite high dollar, depending on type)... Nothing wrong with backing out of a sale before its finalized. I might be annoyed as a seller, but I would rather sell to somebody who actually wants what I am selling. Also to clarify, annoyed at needing to repost the snake for sale, but i've learned many of my experiences with tire-kickers was just as much my fault as a seller as it was the buyer. I now know to be more direct and straightforward when discussing a deal or selling animals. My hobby/business is BUILT on word of mouth... Reputation plays a massive role in the success of individuals.. And it is still common and accepted to back out of a sale. Hurt feelings are less important than spending huge amounts of money on a living creature where your satisfaction may directly impact its care, or your happiness in the long run.
As said previously, its like buying a car... It isn't just a one time purchase, but requires long term care. Why buy a car that I know can't handle he snow as well as another in winter, if I can buy he better car from the start? Posted via Mobile Device
