The sellers of Emma have informed me that they are taking her off the market until after her foal is weaned—i.e. September 2011 at the earliest.
Frustrated and disappointed don’t begin to cover how I feel. Back to the drawing board, I guess.
In other news, United Rentals really doesn’t rent horse trailers. The one I saw on Saturday was the last one that they had from their rental inventory, and they had sold it the day before. The guy said that Double H might rent them, though. Of course, they are closed Mondays, so I’ll call them in the morning.
