What I don't like is pushy sellers. It drives me nuts to go look at a horse and be told that they have 3 other potential buyers or that the last people that looked at him like him so much that they are coming with a check tomorrow if we don't buy. Hate that.
I walk away in that situation. Most of the time they see you like the horse and they exagerate the truth. Kind of like buying a car.
I phones a seller, to make an appointment to look at her horse. She sounded amazing, and free. I wanted to see her then do a vet check and all that. Well the day before I'm suposed to go out the woman tells me she had a buyer come out from pittsburg (8hrs away) with a trailer to pick the horse up, no phone call in advance, nothing. She didnt even think they wanted her after they first saw her. I was soo ticked.
First off what kind of a seller is this woman, to let them just load up the horse like that. I would have told them to go back home, its very rude to show up totally unexpected. This woman didnt really seem to care about her horse that much, so I'm glad I didnt get to look at her.
If someone is pushing their horse to be sold that much, they just looking for quick cash, not the right fit for the horse.
