I am sitting here a bit speechless right now. Some of you know hubby and I have been looking for a couple of horses. I tend to be a bit picky, yes. Well we ran across this add a couple of weeks ago.
5 Years Palomino Gelding for Adoption for sale in Citrus, Florida :: HorseClicks
Not bad at all from what I can tell just from that. I sent an email asking for some updated pictures, asked a few questions, etc. No answer for about a week. Now three days ago I get a response. They asked me some fair questions like where do we live, are we new to horses, etc. But they kept calling the horse "Rooney" .. the horse on Horse Clicks has his name listed as Hazz. I dismissed it as being barn name vs part of a registered name.
Now 10 minutes ago I checked my email and have gotten the second response and needless to say I'm a bit floored. I'll copy it here in its entirety.
