Have to agree on remaining cool, calm, and collected- you want to show that you don't fly off the handle easily. Also you won't present your case as well if you are upset or emotional- and I say that with prior experience in hand. The BO may say things with the goal of trying to upset you or make you angry.

Good luck with your case this morning- I can't wait to see how things go.

I agree...and that makes me wonder if he has tried this before and succeeded? There are many people I know who would cave rather than go into a long legal battle...I bet he has tried this before successfully with other people and gotten away with it. He might have been betting that you wouldn't go this far- and then once there were cops and legal reports he had to follow through or face even more legal troubles. Lying to anyone with a badge is generally a really, really bad idea...

Personally I am wondering if the BO had "seller's remorse" of sorts due to his financial issues- maybe figuring he should have kept the mare until she had the foal to sell? Or maybe trying to be slick- saying you bought the mare, not the foal which hadn't been born yet? Or if he just saw opportunity knocking and grabbed it figuring you wouldn't go this far.

As much as you were good friends...people do stupid things sometimes even despite family ties or friendship. My uncle's family accused me of medical fraud- my cousin and I were in a car accident and I injured and possibly broke my neck. Needless to say he flew off the handle and accused me of medical fraud. It later turned out their car accident history was so bad they nearly couldn't get replacement car insurance when their existing policy dropped them.

There has to be more to this situation that you aren't aware of...especially since his actions don't make much sense. If it isn't you holding back information (and I don't believe you are) then it stands to reason IMO that the BO is hiding something he doesn't want you to know about.
