I think you are doing the right thing.

He is not your responsibility to maintain.
You have been doing right by him that does not make him your financial or emotional burden.

I think we all agree that sending something we have cared for into an unknown fate is not easy. But that does not mean the OP should put her other animals and herself at risk for a horse that is not hers that she has already gone above and beyond for.

Sounds like the ex can't afford to feed it either.
Where did you get that from? I assume that since she is an EX, that they are not living together and the horse won't be going back to the person who couldn't feed it in the first place. I think it sounds like a much better solution to the problem that dragging everything into court. The ex was never mentioned in the OP, or having anything to do with the horse not being cared for, unless I missed it.

They ex gave the horse to the guy to care for since at the time she didn't have any land and couldn't afford to care for him since she was dealing with the divorce and finding a place to live and she has 3 kids aswell to take care of. She gave the horse to the guy we'll will call Mr. R who said he would care for it but he kept the horse tied up and he didn't feed him and so he came to me to help him and I accepted cause he was my neighbors son. So anyways I ended up in the situation that I explained. The ex did not know that the horse had ended up in that horrid condition she says till later. Mr. R did not tell the ex where there horse was she thought I had stolen him for awhile. ( I moved him to a larger pasture with better grass to fatten him more quickly, winter is pretty cold without any fat). Anyways she happend to find me by chance the other day and asked to work something out so she could reclaim the horse. She has a place to keep him trust me I lectured this lady up and down about this horses condition and what I would do if I found out he was getting skinny again after I let her take him. Anyways we worked out a deal that she will pay off his bills at a fee which I set for her. She has already started paying on him and though I am nervous about her taking him especially since I spent so much time and money on him I think this is the best solution that will not start a huge legal battle.

You don't owe this lady anything. Once the horse is off your property that is likely the last you will get any money. In Ontario, the Innkeepers Act protects people who board horses. The moment the board is due there is an automatic lien on the horse. There are a few rules to be abided by but it keeps the courts out of it. I found it through our dept of Ag.

I care for this horse I've had him for a almost a year but winters coming before you know it and he's an extra mouth to feed and he's not even my horse. The ex wife is paying off the lein against him. I think this is best for everyone in this case. As for the money I have a signed contract saying she cannot take the horse till he is paid on full so I'll get my money but if she stops for some reason I think I'll go head and give him to a loving home.
