    Foal
    I haven't put down any money on the filly yet- thank goodness. She promised me the filly but I don't trust that and neither do some of my other family members. I've been watching Craigslist like crazy to make sure she doesn't post the filly because that's just the type of thing she would do.. I wouldn't be so paranoid if she weren't acting this way about it. But it would be best for myself to call it off and find a different horses. I'm finding that the broke horses in my area are cheaper than what she's asking for the filly. I still don't know what to do.

I agree with frank, this will not end when the filly is "yours", it will continue for as long as you own this horse. I'd leg it now before getting anymore attached to the horse.

    On a side note... I don't know what type of progress you want her to give you on a youngster - there is little to nothing to be done with the horse at the moment and bar it getting bigger there is little to report progress wise.
    As far as progress- when I casually ask how my filly is doing (because she has medical embilical issues they are dealing with) It would be nice of her as a breeder to update me on that.

    I wouldn't do it. If you are set on a young one I'm sure there are others around. I wouldn't want anything to do with her.

    Not worth the annoyance. Anything great thehorse does will be due to her, and anything less than great....well you get it. Tell her yyou're looking elsewhere. She is being unprofessional and taking advantage because you're family. Not worth it IMO

    Foal
    I've decided I don't want her filly anymore. The whole thing has been drama. She entered the mother of what was going to be my filly in the fair with a different foal because my horse wasn't good enough... But it's worth $250 more than the other foal. I just can't wrap my mind around her thinking. I decided I would purchase a horse that's already been broken. The foals around here where I live are selling for $100-$300 and she's asking $650 for a non-registered filly. I wanted her horse because she's family, she made it sound all great and wonderful at first but when I made a serious inquire she completely made the horse sound like crap and not worth it. I think she just needed something to brag about.
    I feel SO relieved to not be buying her horse anymore. I'd like to see her actually sell that horse for the price she's asking... I feel stupid for wanting it so bad when I could have gotten a great horse that's already broken and registered for a couple hundred dollars more. I told her yesterday that the deal was off and now she's acting like the filly is the greatest thing ever again and that I don't deserve it anyways -_-
    How come someone so illogical work with horses?

    I think you made a good decision...this person sounds unstable and I think if you bought this filly you would have nothing but problems.

    Under the circumstances, at least you have acted logically. Hope you find a good horse soon.
