This is what he posted:
"There is a horse dealer in Baden you need to beware of. He is unscrupulous at best, unethical at worst.
I recently purchased a horse from him; put down a 50% downpayment and, once the horse had passed a PPE by my vet, made arrangements to go pick him up.
When I arrived, perhaps 30 minutes past my suggested arrival time, he had left the barn to trim a horse, taking with him the papers for the horse I was purchasing. When I entered the barn, a young lady had just finished hosing down the horse’s near front leg. She said he had been turned out and kicked (she thought) by another horse.
I called the dealer’s cell and he indicated that he didn’t know what happened to the horse. He further indicated that it was his intention to register the horse, rather than let the new owner (me) register the horse.
I told him I would go into Baden to get something to eat and meet him back at the barn in two hours.
When I arrived a few minutes early and entered the barn, the horse’s leg had swelled tremendously and it was very, very hot. When the dealer arrived, I told him that I could not, in good conscience, purchase an injured horse but, if the horse was 100% in one week, I would still take him. In the meantime, however, because of the situation, I would like my downpayment back (he did remit the money).
Two days before my agreed-upon return trip, the dealer emailed me pics of the horse’s leg and told me that the horse was now fine. However, he now wanted more money for the horse “to pay for the vet bill.” I still wanted this horse, so I agreed to come up that day to pay for the horse in full and to take him home. As luck would have it, 15 minutes out of the driveway, I had trailer trouble and had to turn back to effect repairs, which took me two hours to complete. Once on the way again, I texted him and told him that repairs had been completed (I had texted him to inform him of the trailer issue) and that I would be at his farm in 90 minutes. He replied and said he had to go to work. I replied that this was understandable.
I texted him again that evening and told him that I would be returning on the originally agreed-upon day to get the horse - to which he replied that he had sold the horse to another buyer.
Beware this young, not-very-bright farrier/dealer in Baden. I am better off for not having consummated a purchase with him and you are well-advised to avoid him altogether.”
1st) Late horse buyers are notorious for NOT SHOWING UP
2nd) He LEFT of course he didnt know that had happened to the horse!
3rd) I have bought horses from dealers and the registration fee is sometimes included in there charge for the horse!!
4th) You normally have to pay the bill for a vet check when you are looking at a horse…. i just dropped 320$ on mine
5th) HE GAVE YOU YOUR DOWN PAYMENT BACK
6th) Yet again you DIDNT SHOW UP ON TIME AT THE NEXT DATE, yes you had trailer issues but come on hes a horse dealer the longer the horse stays the more comes out of his pocket. He made a time for you to show up and you didnt he cant bail on work to wait for you
7th) ITS FIRST COME FIRST SERVE WHEN IT COMES TO HORSES AND HORSE DEALERS/BROKERS THEY DONT SPEND THE TIME SCOUTING FOR ‘THE PERFECT HOME’ ITS A GODDAMN BUSINESS!!!!!
