I would think if you put all these details and your intent to take legal ownership of the horse in a registered/certified letter, it would help your chances greatly. And yes, the laws can differ not only from state to state, but from county to county.

I live in the sticks in Creek County & it is the sheriff that you are supposed to call on animal matters. Good luck & I hope he doesnt come bothering you again.

I know you tried contacting the owner, but did you tell him you want ownership of the horse? Maybe he's not answering because he thinks you want money.

I asked for ownership still hadn't answered back. The ex wife got in touch with me and asked if she could make payments on what is owed. So I told her she could get the horse off my property is she pays him off she's basically repurchasing the horse I doubt he's worth what's owed but she says she wants him.

Try calling a couple local stables, they can probably point you in the right direction of what to do.

I was put in the same boat last year when a so called friend wanted to board at our farm, the first month he paid half of his board, the next he barley paid any thing and nothing the next month, in the agreement he had to buy his own feed and and a quater of the hay, he stopped comming around in july of last year, I talked to the local sheriff (who is also my husbands boss) who told us that we should send a registerd letter to his last known address and put a add in the news papper indicaiting that we we're taking the horse on back board, after 3 postings in the weekly news paper, he also owed us for vet bill but we have since worked out a plan with his grand father who will be letting us cut one of his hay fields next summer and giving us 3/4's of it

By chance I ran into the guys ex wife who told me she would like the horse. She is paying off his debt. I have a written contract with her so I think I can finally get rid of this extra horse and he can be reunited with the little girl who loves him. As long as they pay for him and take care of him I'm fine with that.

I would have a hard time giving it back to them when it looked like it did.
I also would have called animal control when it was in poor condition.
Sounds like the ex can't afford to feed it either.

I can't afford him for much longer myself. And if I try too take it from them a legal battle will start and I don't want to go through that I have importants thing like college and work I need to focus on adding a legal battle would be too much right now.
