Recently I had a woman looking at a horse I have for sale. It sounded like she was really enamored of this gelding and I thought for sure I would make the sale. Then all of a sudden the woman quit responding to my emails and she didn't show up for her appointment to see the horse.
Tonight I learned she bought another horse. Not a big deal, that kind of stuff happens all the time. What was different about this was I heard that some trainer in Oregon told her something "bad" about me and that's why she quit conversing with me and went elsewhere to buy a horse.
Obviously this is frustrating............maybe more on the verge of maddening. I have worked hard to breed great horses but even harder to be a good person. To have my business undermined by rumor and innuendo is...........I don't know what it is.............but it makes my what to curl up in a ball and just quit. What's the point?
