    Here deposits are you take the horse, you bring it back and deposit is your's again..pretty much a "safe" way of doing it..not really for the horse as horse is worth much more

    Payment plans are fairly normal for horses price over 10k, but not for what I would assume this horse is worth, as you only left 200 pounds deposit.

    I'd be really miffed if I were the seller, and coming to take my horse back.
    Excusse me, but I havent said any thing about NOT paying the asking price, please re,read my first message,, I said ,,i wouldent of paid that amount if they wanted the monies straight away, but they said they didnt want the money straight away ,!!!, its not me who has taken them for a ride, how very rude of you to suggest that,,

    Also where the horse came from my husband works with the bloke so we do no them,and yes they new they were getting paid at the end of the month,, what I was trying to say is, I feel like iv been taken for a ride because,we had to pay for the horse to be delivered then as soon has we had him on our land they started nagging for the money,(even tho they no there getting it at the end of the month)and I think they have done this because they couldent pay there stable fees,

    Yes we were upfront about the money,

    Mandy, the things you just noted are things that should have been in the OP. Those were pertinent points of information that were needed to be able to make an informed response.

    That lack of information is what leads one to make comments that seem rude to you, but are simply going off the info that was given and how it was delivered. If you go back and read your OP as someone out side of all the knowledge then you may see where these comments came from.

    Hopefully you and your husband can sit down with them and explain to them how rude it is for them to start hassling you now when they agreed to wait til the end of the month. As much as you are attached to the horse after a few days, you still need to consider if the aggravation is worth the effort. Will there be enough reward in ownership to overcome the fuss you go through to keep it?


    Hope everything works out for both you and the horse.

    BUT YOU DON'T have the $$. Bottom line. You have few choices here, IMO, and if you want this horse I would be begging the sellers to try and figure something out with me, like a payment plan. You actually expect people to wait another 2+ weeks (until the end of the month was what you said) to get more payment? In the meantime, what if something happens to the horse? Sorry, but IMO you had no business even considering a horse. God forbid it gets sick and vet bills start coming in....then what? Buying a horse is the cheap part. Keeping it as it should be kept costs MUCH more. I think you have taken advantage of the sellers. Plain and simple, and I would be on you like flies on poo getting my horse back if I were them.

    If they agreed to be paid at the end of the month, tell them you are sticking to your original agreement and if they keep asking for payment before then, tell them to bugger off until then. As for you paying for the horse to be delivered to you, that is standard practice not just with horses but everything you buy, buyer pays shipping costs. Have you ever shopped on EBay? Very rarely does a private seller pay the shipping costs!
