OK so tommorrow I will make a 4 h trip to go see a horse I`m interested on buying.
So my "horse"friends cancelled me in the last minute so I will be going ALONE.....I know not the best idea.....BUT I come armed with my questionaire and my video camcorder.
I will not make a decision on buying this horse tommorrow so I figure I gotta drive where I gotta drive even if its all by myself....shock:
This is my crazey plan:
I go there check him out,ride him etc.....sleep on it. Either make a decision then or go back the following weekend and ride him a second time and then make a decision.
Now I`m 4 hours away should I get a vet from that area that I don`t know and get a vet check?
Would you guys think I should/have to be there or do you think its ok for the vet to report to me via phone?
Or do you guys think its rude If I would ask if they offer to bring him to my vet,pending a clear vet check and then I buy him,or better said I agree to buy him as long as the vet check goes good.
My friend bought her 2 horses from a broker 1 hour away and he offered to do that all for free.....is this normal practice?
