    Did your old coach not like you?

    I hope this horse was cheap. I can't imagine any other reason to buy a known rearer/bucker that had been passed around for a kid.

    What really confuses the hell out of me is why this wasn't required or standard procedure until fairly recently.

    You really just need to give up and accept that the seller in your case did nothing wrong.

    Whether or not the seller indicated that others were looking at the horse *might* be questioned by the...

    Geez, what are the odds? I spent 8 years at St.Chuck's, (aka Upchuck's.) I actually went to Mass there with my dad the last time I was out there. First time in (that church) in about 20 years,...

    As a seller, honestly who cares if locals have "first dibs?" It's not the seller's problem where the buyer lives. A 90 minute drive is not really that long in the big picture. I know several...

    I'm so sorry. I grew up there. :)

    That's the worst weather ever. Below zero in the winter, often above 90 in the summer. The only redeeming thing is no hurricanes.

    I recall my father saying that they just used bailing twine to wrap around pant legs when he was working, way back in the dark ages. Maybe that was just a guy thing.:winkgrin:

    They are also often wool with a canvas back. It does thin out the jowl/neck area. The saddleseat side of the house has used them for years. Functionally, it makes it easier for a horse to set...

    What exactly were they supposed to do? Maybe note a lot number for future reference, other than that, what? I don't think that would have made the OP happy in the slightest.

    There's no reason to assume a seller wouldn't show a horse for 6 days without a deposit.

    1) put the horse in full training, most likely with a cowboy type.

    2) Vet check (concurrent with above)

    3) unload the horse as...
