    Mis-sold horse. Wondering if anyone could offer legal advice?

    I've not read all the replies. But my personal thoughts are - you didn't get horse vetted, you can't prove the dealer had any prior knowledge of the issue (would have flagged up had you had a vetting) and also if you send the horse back, it could be sold on. I'm afraid I'd be PTS and cutting...

    Warning signs. Legal or illegal?

    I think you'd be extremely unfortunate to find a judge who would act against you.

    Pricing a horse......

    I'd feel comfortable offering as low as 70% of the horses advertised price under usual circumstances. Definitely add a little on to the price to allow for bartering.

    My obese horse

    Depending on how fat and depending on how hairy, I'd be stripping horsey off. But then again, I am cruel!

    irresponsible horse owner

    I don't buy it. But even if I did - her benefits are to do with as she pleases. And it still doesn't excuse you're lack of communication..

    Katie price on mag cover

    So you're saying Katie Price doesn't have morals? Does she not meet the minimum moral criteria to appear on the cover of HHO?

    Katie price on mag cover

    I hope she appears on the front cover topless just to knock a few of your noses out of joint. Hilarious that some people are so snobby and spiteful!

    Tell me about Cavalier King Charles Spaniels

    I think if you are to look objectively that any and every dog breed has it's list of problems. I think if you look carefully and find a dog with health tested parents, then you can't go too far wrong. Despite cavaliers being fairly prone as a breed to health issues, I will never be without one...

    Tell me about Cavalier King Charles Spaniels

    Lovely dogs. I have them and I have known plenty. Never met one that I didn't like. One of mine is about 10 now and is just as active as she was as a puppy despite always having a minor heart murmur. Mine have never had health problems except one who has had ear infections once or twice.. But...

    White snot coming out of one nostril?

    Just keep an eye on it for now. As others have said watch out for coloured snot. My horse once had green snot and it was influenza.

    Owner decided to sell to someone else after vetting

    I can't help wondering whether the horse came in lame prior to the vetting and the seller decided to take shoes off and create a 'reason' for the horse being lame..

    Sounds like £125 well spent to me!

    What does 'price negotiable' mean to you?

    I'd say around 30% as a rule of thumb. So if the horse is priced at 8k, I wouldn't really offer below 5.5k if the horse was as advertised. Likewise, if the horse was £1500 I wouldn't really go below £1000 with an offer.. You can be cheeky without being insulting. As others have said, it depends...

    Went to see a horse; is this a fair price?

    I'm really surprised by the responses. To me he is a little on the pricey side. Is it a regional thing or am I just a cheapskate!?

    Cud some kind person get me a number on preloved

    Actually, I don't think that they are. Surely they're just questioning where this strong moral line starts and where it ends? Can I get a number for my mum or should I tell her to pay her own fiver?

    travelling with lorry windows open

    My big grievance with trailer doors is that cars on the motorway etc ahead can flick up stones or something and it hit the horse. I don't think this is physically near as likely (or really that possible) with high side windows on a lorry. Or at least I hope? I always travel with lorry windows...
