Quarter Turn Ranch sold my horse behind my back

First of all, I did have an offer from someone to buy this horse for $2000.00 but because I knew Fran (owner of QTR) and TRUSTED her, I "sold" her for less. I sold her to Fran for $1000.00 after she had already sold the horse for $4500.00.

If Fran felt so sorry for me, then why didn't she contact me directly with the buyer??? Secondly, my horse's temper has nothing to do with this. I paid Fran over $7000.00 to "take care" of my horse the rest is none of her concern. By the way, my horse's "temper" certainly wasn't described to the people who bought her.

Third, why was I lied to on Friday at 11:30am when I went to see if any buyers were coming that day like I was told? I was told straight to my face that they weren't coming until Sunday WHEN ACTUALLY THEY WERE COMING AT AROUND 1PM. Fourth, I could have at any time changed my mind. Lastly, I took the check and gave up the papers because I was unaware MY HORSE HAD ALREADY LEFT THE PREMISES at 2pm on Sunday!!!!!

She led the new buyers to believe a total lie! I only found out because they called me after the picked her up. They were told she did all these events and were trail ridden when in fact it was all a lie! I didn't even get to say good bye to my horse or let my 2yr old son see her one last time.

THIS HORSE WAS NOT FRAN'S TO SELL UNTIL SUNDAY AT 4PM WHEN I PICKED UP THE CHECK AND DROPPED OFF PAPERS. Fran is the most unethical, despicable, cold hearted, poor business woman I have ever encountered.

I, myself have had a harsh run in with her. She’s not very polite and she loves to put the blame on others for her mistakes or should I say, she will accuse others for things they never did. I’m sorry that you had a bad experience with her as well.

Sounds a little like "Seller's Remorse" to me.

The original seller, presumed author of this complaint, should have exercised a little more professional business ethics when they were first negotiating the sale of her horse to Fran.

The "Gentleman's Agreement" rarely ever works out.

The nature of buying and selling sets the seller to transfer their goods or services either for a profit or to transfer in a sale the said goods or services in an effort to cut their losses.

The nature of buying and selling sets the the buyer to receive goods or services for a fair price, or a bargain, or to acquire the said goods or services as simply an acquisition, no matter the costs.

It is generally recognized that in most cases a merchant will try to buy low and then resale higher in an effort to make a profit. Not every seller is savvy enough to generate extreme profits. Nor does every seller has the knowledge of which market to operate in or even have the right contacts for the goods or services.

Hence, some sellers tend to profit in percentages much higher than others. Such is our system of Capitalism.

If you accepted a payment from Fran for your horse, then the horse became property of Fran. If you're accepting the payment into your hands, you should have already made your peace with your property before you accepted the payment.

There should NEVER be any special considerations for friends or family members in the business of buying and selling. It's quite simply, "Just Business." As for your comment, "Fran is the most unethical, despicable, cold hearted, poor business woman I have ever encountered"... Well, I don't know Fran personally; however from what you've written above I would tend to believe that she operated in a very savvy way. I don't believe that she was "unethical" nor "despicable." As for the "cold hearted"...

I believe that she should not have had any temperature in her feelings of buying low and selling high. As for "poor business woman," I believe that she's obviously a much better business woman than the woman that she bought the horse from. You have to remember, you're not inviting Fran over to your house every day to discuss gossip. And, you're not inviting Fran and her family over to your family's house every Friday night for drinks and dinner.

So, you should remember that it's "JUST BUSINESS." If your not happy with the transaction, then learn from it.

Then next time you might want to put together a "Sales Contract." That's what we do whenever we're buying or selling a horse. All of the above is simply my opinion and I'm Just Saying...

Does sound true who hands over registration papers before they sell a horse. No one is that ***

I called there Fran she said she did not sale that horse she traded that horse. The girl she traded horses with said her horse could be worth 4500. But it wasn't broke yet.

Guest

Sounds fish..you gave up the papers and sold the horse. It was her horse at that point to do what she wanted. When you sold the horse to her you should of said good bye then
