This is her ad. As you can see, I was rather blunt about her past. Brown 2 Year Old Thoroughbred Filly | Buy this Horse at Equine.com
Just to throw my two cents in here.....from both sides of the situation. :)
As a buyer, I have had sellers ask to view my property 1st hand to be sure it is 'safe and adequate'. I had no issues with it - apart from a few who seemed to have a attitude about it. Imo it shows the owners actually care about the horse and it's new home.
As a (new) owner, I would have no issues asking to see their property to assure the situation is a good one for the horse and the new owner. I would ask in a respectful manner of course, not an arrogant one - but I would by all means ask to see their property if they were seriously interested. I think that also reassures buyers that you care about the horse and both of their safety (horse and new owner). JMHO there.
Sounds like a great situation for her. Keep us updated, and GL.....
