American paint horse stolen?lost? Please help!

I have a 6 year old paint gelding that I do I number of things with... Drill Team, Trails, Barrels ect. He is my baby. He started to act up out of nowhere. I took him to the vet and they said he needed some time off to relax. He is a hot horse as it is and he was just going nuts it seemed like. Trying to buck, rear, not wanting to preform.... So I decided to do what the vet said. My half sister who lives in Missorri has a 50,000 acre ranch. I spoke with her and she agreed that I could bring him up there to be turned out for a while. I took him there and eveything was fine. I came back to where I live in Florida and kept in touch to see that he was doing well. After 2 months of being there my sister tells me she sold him. Can you beleive that? Just sold him and the real kicker is she sold him for $500.

Ok now here is where I am now... I have his papers, vet records, 40+ Pictures, Bill of sale when I bought him, Coggins, Health Certificate from vet before I took him to my sisters...
My sister is trying to say I am not permitted to go on her proberty. If she has him there am I allowed to get him? If I bring the police with me can I just show them his information and pick him up? I dont know where to go from here... All I know is that I did NOT want him sold under any sercumstances.
Does anyone know anything about this? What else can I do to ensure I can get my horse back? PLEASE ANY SUGGESTIONS ARE HELPFULL! I am flying to Missorri this Coming Friday and I am going to try to get my baby back.
Thank you for reading my message... Please comment back with any ideas.

Oh my god that's horrible.. You're sister is insane. Get the police involved, absolutely. You'll need them to have any authority over her.

Check your other thread :)

You have the bill of sale and all papers, call the police in your state and in Missouri. Good luck, keep us posted.

take all that you have and get the police to go with you. I had a friend run into that and it took her taking the lady to court but she got her horse back the only bad thing was that when she got him back the person that had sold the horse messed him up really bad before she let him go. so i would say do it fast and be very quiet about it until you can go with the police to get him. good luck and you and your baby are in my prayers .

i have my bloodhound & my horses what more can a girl ask for?

Is your horse chipped. I have an Avid chip on my mare. That Avid chip is another proof of ownership. I would get the police involved because she had no right to sell the horse. More importantly she is not the owner of the horse and doesn't have any right to sell the horse.
Good Luck.

Oh, man I'd want to KILL her.

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

How infuriating! I'd be on the war path.
Any update on this?
