In my experience, its usually the current owner that would schedule a vet check, but if you have a vet you prefer, you can ask that they be used. It's kind of a sellers responsibility, much like selling a house; if it doesn't pass inspection, the owner pays for fixing it so the buyer can buy it. wink.png

If they really really want to sell, they'll offer it anyway, but some of the older stock horses may not really be worth the cost of a vet check. It's a "buyer beware" case if that's what the seller and buyer decide.

Just beware that if the seller schedules a vet check with their vet, you never know if you are getting unbiased opinions. Not that I expect vets to be biased, but you never know what the owner and vet's past history is. IMO it is better to either bring along your vet or another vet that is recommended local to the farm. I know I would trust my vet over any other because they have my best interest in mind and they also have no history with the horse (unless we happen to use the same vets!)
