I dont think he is hiding the fact he is taking him to another auction as much as just avoiding me. He doest go to sales so he has no idea what they bring. He got a horse at a sale once 8 years ago and paid 1200 for it. I tried to explain to him that the bottom has fell out of horses to no avail....Something just doesn't make sense. I can't believe that he is that naive that he thinks the horse in it's present condition will bring him $700. That being the case, and even if he won't sell to you directly, what should he care if he knows you will bid at an auction. In fact, I would think, if it were me, that he stands a better chance of getting "top dollar", what ever that is, with you being there to bump up his price.
Funny you say that, I feel like a stalker thats for sure lol. I am not going back to his house, if he takes it to the sale this weekend I will get him back for less than I sold him for since he is not going to put a reserve on him. I have been to this sale it is a bimonthly sale, there were some really nice horses there that only brought 500.I would back off a notch. You are starting to sound like a stalker. If you are uninvited on his property, he could have you arrested for trespassing.
Unless you want to report him so the horse is confiscated, all you can do is wait him out. I would say he is trying to push your buttons - and you are letting him.
Like you said I dont want to get arrested for trying to save a horse...
