Re: RE: Buying a horse/WARNING
I guess in this particular case, there is some confusion because the person
who obtained the pre-purchase was not allowed to buy the horse and the
person who actually bought the horse got the pre-purchase information from
the vet just by asking for it. So, in this case at least, "buyer" is a
relative term. Does seem like the person who benefitted from the
information (the person who went home with the horse) might have some
liability for the vet bill, although I suppose it could also be argued that
since the vet should not have released the information to anyone other than
the person who ordered the pre-purchase, the vet might have to eat it. I
don't know any of these folks--my interest is purely academic. Be
interesting to know what the attorneys on Ridecamp say.
