Going to see this mare in about 20 mins for my aunt. Would be used for trails and we would trailer her to the trainer for lessons as well.

This is what the seller has to say about her:

Bell is a 16yr old reg. paint mare solid.
Stands about 15.3 hands
Good for vet farrier loads and unloads her self. clips and ties.
Rides western and english.
Has hunter saddle points with the APHA.
Nice head set. Shownmanship delxue.
Also will go on trails,has been used in lesson programs.
Very sweet and willing mare !
Great in the stall or in the field.
Easy keeper !

She looks like a sweetie! I am not a confo expert,but I don't see anything terrible jumping out at me.

Nice looking Appy! A bit long in the back but just from those pictures she looks nicely conformed otherwise.

How did it go?

That's a nice looking horse. I hope it worked out for you. She is really very appealing.

Did not go well. The horse was very nice, drove a hour and a half to ride and see her. She was great and we made the arrangements to go pick her up the next day.

I get home, check my email about 2 hours later to find an email from the seller (younger 16 year oldish girl) saying that someone showed up with a trailer and better offer so she sold her.

Sorry to hear that. That is one reason I like to take a trailer with me - or at least leave a substantial deposit.

In any case, the seller should have given you the courtesy of a call and giving you the option of meeting the price.

Gut feeling only - seller decided to keep horse.

Joe4d 12-19-2011 08:17 AM

money in hand trumps a "I'll come back tomorrow" It shouldnt but just so many people dont show up the first time or dont come back or dont call when they say, I'll call you. I pretty much wont hold anything unless they have put down a deposit.
Saying that, If you had put down a deposit to guarantee a deal, I wouldnt entertain additional offers. Nor would I sell it to someone that shows up with a higher offer.

As a fellow buyer, that really sucks, sorry that happened to you.

As a current seller, sorry if you are in my yard with money and a trailer the horse is yours. I truly can't believe how people treat sellers. Once I get these guys gone I hope I never have to sell on the open market again.
