Buying a horse sight unseen?
Hello everybody :)
I am from The Hunter (NSW) and I have recently come across a weanling for sale that I really like the look of. He is on a big stud farm in southern Qld and because of the EI I can't go see him. The owners have sent me photos, and say that he can agist with them free of charge till the ban is lifted, only if I pay in full. I am very nervous about sending money to another state, to people I don't know, for a horse that for all I know doesn't exist, let alone be the same horse that I have seen photos of. I should mention that he is only $900 BUT we all know that purchase price is the cheap bit.
Please I would love to hear some opinions and experiences. Am I crazy for even considering buying without seeing?
Thankyou for your time, Jacki :)
