Some of you are aware of my situation. I won't go into great detail, but here are the basics. I bought a horse in January after trail riding him approximately 5 times, over a couple of weeks. I continued to trail ride 2-3 times per weeks until early March. We did a 15 mile ride and afterwards, he was in great pain. A few days of bute and he was much improved. About 10 days after that, I took him on a gentle, 2 hour ride and afterwards was in a great deal of pain again. I took him to vet and he has advanced Navicular Disease.
The one who sold him is the same one who owns the boarding facility that I am at. She wants to make this situation right and wants me to think about what I think would be fair. I don't know if she knew he was Navicular as she only had him 2 months prior to me buying him. I'm sure that she had suspicion that something was wrong.
So, what would be fair to ask her? The whole purchase price? A percentage of purchase price? What about the medical expenses? I'm not good with this kind of thing, so I want to get some opinions. Thanks!
