Poor kid... ive been hearing a couple of different things.. apparently everyone at the barn (not going to name barn names, but Jen, you may know which barn in talking about) agrees with the previous owner taking back the horse. last i heard, she was refusing to even negociate and sort of agreement. she wouldnt hear of it. shes determind to keep the horse. i know this little girl, and shes sweet. she loves all her horses very much, and i know she would never intentionally do anything that would be detrimental to their health. its breaking my heart to see her go through this :( i can only imagine how devastating it must be...

last time i talked to her, i kindly explained, that without a bill of sale, there was probably not a lot they could do if she didnt want to give the horse back :( its unfortunate, but true. i own 3 horses, only one of which i bought, the other two, were given to me. and for both, i have a legal bill of sale. even though i didnt pay for them, all you need to make it legal, is a document saying i bought the horse for $1. so they belong to me, and no one can just show up and "take them back" without it being deemed as theft of property. it doesnt matter if its a proper receipt/bill of sale, as long as its got signatures, dates, object being sold, and any other conditions stated clearly. i know someone who wrote a bill of sale on a napkin, when she gave a horse to a friend. its that simple, and in the long run, it can prevent things like this from happening.

I "think" the horse is a registered QH and with that said a transfer of ownership would have prevented this in a jiffy.

I think this is a good eye opener for those that have papers and haven't bothered to spend the $$$ to transfer them.

A couple of years ago we were approached by someone and I quote "please take my mare, I don't want anything for her...just a good home." This was a 3 year old unbroke mare, nice ....just something a little to good to be true and my husband is a firm believer in the old adage that nothing is ever really free. We declined but friends of ours took the mare who did turn out to be a handful in the beginning but with the TLC and patience that they bestowed on her, continued to grow and with training turned into a super little riding mare. They had her about 10 months and the former owner came to them and demanded her back. My friends found that without some sort of wriiten documentation such as a written agreement of the terms, a bill of sale or registration certificate in their name, that they really didn't have the right to keep the mare although they were the ones who had put the time and expense of keeping and training her. It was very apparent the all the former owner wanted in this case was rid of a horse that she evidently could not handle but once she noticed the nice horse she had turned into wanted her back.

I know that the situation was different in the case that My Pony but the end result was the same. Somebody had loved a horse and then had it taken away. It is heartbreaking to hear.

It is always best to get the terms of any agreement in some form of written agreement. I am amazed at the number of registered horses that we have sold that are still in our names literally years after the sale.

Without knowing the ins and outs of this situation it is very hard to judge. I agree that this must be devastating for the young girl.

Was the old owner perhaps thinking ,'if the horse has lost weight over the summer, how will he fare this winter if indeed a single mom is trying to support three kids and three horses?' That being said, I am not saying that would necessarily be my position, I would probably offer to help with the bills on my old horse so that everyone would be happy (I have done that in the past).

A sad scene all around....and another case of paperwork would be good!
