I have the worst breeder ever.. (Rant)
Okay so I'm getting my filly through a family member... Who always claims she is so professional about everything she does yada-yada... But she doesn't answer anything I have to ask or say about the horse I'm buying from her! Like My horse was born April 5th and I don't get her until September sometime and when I asked her how my horse was doing she acted as though I shouldn't be asking because it isn't my horse or something! She was like, "Why is she asking about that horse?"... Because I'm buying it?! I think I should be able to ask for a 4 month progress report. Anyways I haven't seen pictures of my filly since I met her when she was only 2 months old.
I don't know why this family member is being so irrational to me... She treats all of her other horse buyers like gold. I guess it's just her trying to screw me over because she's family.
Ever since me wanting this horse she's gossiped to everyone else about me to my other family members... Trying to make me and my horse look worthless. I know she was hoping I'd back out of the deal and get my dreams crushed. She's asking me for $250 more for my filly than any of her other foals because "mine is special," I think it's just that she wants to screw me over!
I would back out of the deal and put my money into a trustful breeder who will be open to me about my horse that I'm buying but I'm attached to this filly... She is special. She's got great temperament.
Everything I ask about my filly is answered with a one word response.... GRRR. I swear I am never buying a horse from her again and I refuse to put in a good word for her. She hates it when anyone else besides herself has the spotlight, I'm not trying to steal her spotlight but she seems to think I do. And I know she's going to take every it of credit for the progress I make with that horse. Oh my gosh. Relatives.
Not to mention its super irritating how she asked me what I wanted to name my horse, Cabela, and she's like "oh well her name is little red." And then whenever I say 'Cabela' she says 'little red' and it sounds like we are talking about 2 different horses- it is so annoying. AND THEN she forces her kids to call my horse little red, I think to get on my nerves. It does get on my nerves but I don't show it. I just put on a smile and act happy as ever... That should make her mad right?

It doesn't make sense at all that one minute she'll talk crap about my horse and then the next she'll say it's worth $250 more than the others.

You DO realize that this will not end in September when you get the horse? She will ALWAYS be looking at you critically and everything you do with the filly will be scrutinized. There are other horses out there. Personally I would tell her where to get off, and take my $$ elsewhere.

I agree ^. I woudn't purchase the filly off her - I don't think it will be worth your time, money or heart ache!

I'd run a mile. This is only a 3mo+ that as far as I can tell you have very little dealings with... IMO it sounds to me like you are more attached to the idea of this filly than the filly itself. 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.

Yeah I'm considering it. I could get an older broke horse for the price she's asking for the filly.

I would run. Especially since she's a family member, you'll never be able to get away. If you can buy a broke horse for what she's askin for the fully, I think that would be a wiser decision.

I think it would be better if you pass on the filly - family drama aside, it's a buyers market these days with lots of good horses out there at a good price. Hope you haven't signed a contract or left a deposit.

Did you give her a deposit on this filly or paid for it yet? If you did & you change your mind, she can keep your money, legally as well. If not, tell her since she isn't sending you pictures & calling the filly a different name, you have to look elsewhere for a breeder that will accommodate you. That'll teach her!
