for a little less than I year I wanted a quarter horse. A gelding, color doesnt matter but less than 9 years old and already wearing a saddle and carrying a rider... very green broke- advanced I looked at them all. Anything $4000 or less I was interested in.
I FINALLY found my dream horse, I went to see him last saturday; and on the way home (10 minutes after I left) I called her back and said I would take him. Paying the full $4000 in cash wasnt an issues.
I told her I would e-mail her Monday or Tuesday (sunday was easter) with the address to where the horse was going. I'm keeping him at a neighbors and I just wanted to give her a heads up that this horse was the one and make sure we were on the same page yet...
Well I got an e-mail this morning saying the woman sold the horse to someone else who came and took him along with paid for him right away...
I cannot even begin to tell you how bummed out I am, not angry, just bummed.
There is/was nothing else close to me (within 2 hours) that I want to even look at... ugh.
I told the woman I was serious, she had no problem with me buying him at all, and I thought it was a done deal until she could pick a day to ship him... I guess I was wrong. What a waste of excitment.
