I am shocked that someone respond to you like that when you were only answering HER ad!!! I don't have a trailer either and my horse is darn sure not abused. And if an emergency happens, I will be calling my vet....even if I did have a trailer I wouldn't load my horse in it if I had an emergency! If he is well enough to load up and go for a ride, then it's not an emergency. Geez, sounds like a real nut case! I think what you offered is very reasonable. You pay the gas, somebody else provides the trailer....seems very fair to me. Don't let the crazys get to you!
I have a few horse friends but the ones with trailers don't have trailers that will fit my monster. I've offered to rent one if they pull but haven't been able to find anything in a reasonable distance. I figured if I offered gas and found someone that could haul it would be a better fix? I have a friend that hauls her for me and she has some horses but whenever she hauls she never wants to ride with me. She just sits in the tack room in the trailer and reads a book until I come back. I feel a little bad when she doesn't join.
haha my mouth fell open at that, That would send me off the edge. people can call me anything they want, but when they try to get at my horses or tell me i dont take great care of them i flip out, haha. I would've been close to huntin her down and slapping her silly, some people need a good punch to knock some sense into them, haha i would definitly stay away from her, theres some crazy horse people out there!
Oh I believe that! There's some crazy crazies I've had responses from for other stuff online, like selling simple leg wraps I had someone email me asking if they'd be good for bondage! WHAT?! Dirty old polo wraps...well if that's what floats your boat...? hmmmm
I've found that people on the other side of the screen (myself included) can be a little nutty. I sold my saddle to a woman who THREE WEEKS later tried to tell me it was not leather, it was synthetic and wanted her money back..... Even if I had the money a month later, you wouldn't get it back. There's a clear difference between synthetic saddles and leather ones. I used conditioner on it and everything.
I also have an album of me/my gelding, which includes some riding photos on my myspace. I want you to just guess the kind of messages I get from creepy old men.
I can guess. I used to be on a pet forum where there was just this one poster. no picture or history or anything who would just ask me "did you ONLY ride in the saddle?" and he'd go after others two, especially those of us with big dogs.
