After untacking we asked if she had a regular vet she would call to have him vetted and she said she wouldn't do that, her husband wouldn't let her spend the money.
So what do I do now? My brain tells me to move on, but this horse is exactly what I am looking for and the price is very good. It seems stupid to get a PPE on a horse that I saw lame with my own eyes today. But what if it was just a minor passing issue? Should I find a vet to come look at the pastern in a few days and if he is still lame call it quits then? If he is sound at that point I can ask the vet to continue with a full exam. The horse is 2 hours away so unfortunately I most likely won't be able to be there for it, and it really frustrates me that I'll have to vet her horse myself for an obvious issue if I want to buy it.
