How long do you keep after someone selling a horse?

if someone says like they will call you later or email you pics later, and never does, how long do you keep asking them to get back in contact with you? this guy has an absolutely perfect horse for what I need, hung up the phone with him promise of emails and a return call in the next few hours, here we are a few days later with no word. Do I call him again? Text him maybe?

Call him one more time. If you get no response after that, let it go.

I would call one more time and then figure it's not going to happen. He may have sold the horse and just doesn't feel obligated to get in touch with you to let you know. If that is not the case, calling one more time will give him the chance to let you now what is going on and proceed if the horse is still available.

I agree, give him one more call then call it quits. A lot of times people don't let you know that they have sold the horse unless you call again.

That sucks when that happens. I hate when people dont have the courtisy to let you know what is going on.

Follow your gut instincts and btw, there are no perfect horses.... he sounds like he is too busy or doesn't care. Move on! It might save you a hassle in dealing with this type of personality anyway... doesn't sound like a sound business dealing person.... beware!

Maybe he did e-mail the photos and your spam filter blocked them?
