worst :(

When I bought Tucker, the owner offered me super cheap board so I kept him there. I've gone out everyday and worked him under the careful eye of his previous owners. Tonight after I was done and getting ready to leave she walks up to my car and breaks down telling me they have changed their mind about selling him and hands me an envelope with the amount I paid for him. She is apologizing and saying her son wasn't fully in agreement to sell him to begin with blah blah..I didn't really know what to say so I stood there stunned. My husband is IRATE because of the time and effort I've spent on Tucker (pre purchase vet exam was over $300 alone) and says I shouldn't have taken the money and left with my tail between my legs. I am so devastated right now. I shouldn't have kept him there. :(

How much time transpired between your buying him and them backing out? This does not sound legal to me. AND they owe you for prepurchase and your training cost!

Any contract, letter or email confirming he's yours? Also I'd ABSOLUTELY tell them you'll go to the court to either get a horse back or get ALL money you paid (exam, training, equipment) back from them as well.

They can't do that!!! IF you agree on selling him back they should return all money lost! So sorry, this is awful!

I spoke with the son last night, and he is very sweet kid..it really isn't his fault. He feels very betrayed by his mother. He is paying for the vet exam. I already was given the money for Tucker, yesterday. I know I have the right legally to keep him..but I feel awful for the son who is innocent. His mother is really the a-hole in the situation and I would like to smack her. Literally EVERYTHING the woman has every told me about Tucker is a lie. I confirmed the lies with her son on the phone last night. I am devastated...but I am not going to take this man's horse from him because his mother is a whacko.

Thank you everyone for your advice and sympathy. You gals are more protective than my hubby lol ;)

It still is very sad! That is nice of you to allow the son to buy back the horse. Are you horse shopping again?

Yes, I am back on the market. A tinsy hungover emotionally and a little weary of starting the process over again though.
