    Findeight is correct. The owner needs to send the following email to perspective buyers:

    Please note that I had graciously given an extension for the horse to stay on trial and be vetted so long as it was completed by January 15, 2008. Subsequent to that, you requested an extension so that the horse could be vetted and paid for on January 18, 2008. In the interim, you have used my horse, trailered him to shows, and shown him. Please note that I will not permit another extension nor do I want to hear that you need to wait for results of bloodwork or the like given you have had my horse for well over 45 days. I will not accept that the vet had an emergency or anything of the sort so perhaps you should have a contingency plan in place in the event your specialist has some undetermined conflict. The money for the horse MUST be in my account on January 18, 2008 no later than 1:50pm by wire transfer and here is the wire information. If the money is not in the account, I have made arrangements to have the shipper or myself pick up the horse January 19, 2008 in the morning and you will need to have X dollars for the shipping in cash as agreed upon when the horse was taken on trial.

    Please note that regardless of the outcome of the vetting, I am NOT reducing the price of the horse so let's make sure we are real clear on that point to."

    Of course she won't do this but......

    Well, of course the buyers were clued in.

    Hopefully your friend is scared enough about the situation now, to finally get some balls on her, and not take the low-ball offer.

    And really - if they just wanted it to "all be over" - couldn't they just *gasp* PAY FOR THE HORSE.

    Of course, once the horse is paid for (either by the people currently with the horse, or someone else), this drama will continue when we get bombarded with guilty (or not guilty? ) parties telling us how mean we are for looking at/posting pictures, bad mouthing things 1 and 2, and not having full confidence that they were going to send money.

    Or, better yet, buyers back out on sale because us meanie-heads on CoTH said such awful things.

    I'm willing to bet the drama will not be over anytime soon - money in hand or not!

    Maybe now that the buyers have been snippy with the seller, she'll get tough and be able to send something like that. It would be totally rich if both buyer and seller were reading this thread and the buyer sent an e-mail with those exact words! Pleasepleasepleasepleasepleaseplease.......
    Y'all ain't right!

    Is there a way to save this thread, as reference for future use? I love some of the letters that have been posted, they are professional and straight to the point. Also, the horror stories will keep me humble at all times.

    Hey guys, lets back track a bit. Didn't the seller get a deposit check? If she did, why was it never cashed??? I always cash a deposit check otherwise it is a worthless piece of paper and not a deposit on anything.

    Silver Lining:

    There is hope for the world. Besides everybody on COTH agreeing, it turned out as expected, maybe Armageddon is still off in the far future!

    I think (it's been a while, so I might not be remembering correctly) that there was some confusion about whether there was actually a check in the buyer's hand..... She might have just told epona that.

    Seller isn't reading this thread - we've sent it to her hoping to smack some smarts into her...it hasn't worked yet. I wish she would however...

    As far as the check - she told EC she had a check in hand. Didn't cash it because she was worried they had already put a stop payment on it or some other BS...I'm still not sure she even had it in her hand to begin with...

    (and yes the obvious is to pay for the horse)

    ...but correct me if I am wrong now...

    perhaps they are not-so-in-love with the horse?

    So then, I ask...what is the point? I don't recall ever having to be talked into buying a horse. I generally was being talked out of it **rose colored lenses firmly strapped in place!**

    Weird on so many levels.
    My guess is that they were alerted about the thread, and aren't overly happy with what they read.

    Miss Epona girl - I wish to not over step here, but I have relayed your message to Ocala. They were Poloing part of the day and spying the rest they are most pleased and will be in touch in the morning.

    Let's see what Friday brings shall we? Always good to play things close to the vest when dealing with attorneys, Realtors, unscrupulous trainers, weasels and snakes. shades on!
    oooh you little imp you

    My thoughts exactly!!

    I have been quietly watching this thread and have never felt so frustrated as all of you are. Methinks that this girl has had a lobotomy at one point in her life? I am hoping she gains at least the rational part of her brain back, learns from this and never does something this dumb again. Somehow I doubt it.

    Can't wait to hear an update.

    IIRC, she got a check for the entire amount, to be held until after January 1. Since the buyers will have noticed that it is now well after January 1, they must either have put a stop payment on said check, or told silly cow not to cash it, which silly cow has apparently not done.

    Silly cow.

    Somebody was wondering what we can do when this trainwreck finally stops....well, is Suerte in foal this year? That should be good for several weeks' worth of entertainment!
