I had owned my horse for over 6 years and my husband had his horse for 5 years.

OK. If it was me, I would go up and just ask for the horses to be returned. If he says yes, you aren't out anything but the trip to go get them. If he says no, I'd offer a comfortable amount of board IF he'll return them and sign a bill/receipt that says he accepts XXX as payment in full for the boarded horses and waives any future claim to said horses. The he acknowledges that the verbal contract for his purchase of the horses is null and void due to non-payment and from this day forth you and your husband will retain full ownership of your horses, with no hindrance or claim from him. Something like that, I'd probably pay for a lawyer to write up the agreement, might even take him to town and have it notarized when/if he signs it.

Maybe make it 2 statements, so that if he doesn't demand board, you don't give him any ideas and you can still have him sign that he has no claim. Just because I never trust anyone to do what they say.

So, you waited almost a year before checking on them & caring about the non-receipt of payments for the one you were selling? Did you ever in that year have emails or a request for payment-on either the horse you were selling or board for the one you weren't? And what about vet & farrier bills? I hope they haven't let the feet grow all this time with no care. Have they been wormed? Standing knee deep in mud is not healthy-I hope all the horses get a better living situation.

No contract ? Those horses are his. You have no more right to them than you do the horses in my pasture. Call him, be friendly ask if you can have them back, as in ASK, ask nicely. If he balks ask bare bones what he would sell them back to you for so he could get some of his expenses back. Sure in reality he probably doesnt deserve anythign but if a couple hundred bucks can get em back. He might say sure. If you start demanding or using words like MY Horse, and MY Husbands horse, or show up with the police, Id tell you and the police to get bent and carry your happy hindquarters off my property. I don't know about SC law but in some states it is perfectly legal to shoot someone coming on to your property and taking a horse.

Just goes to show you went and entered into a very complicated contract complete with financing terms and it didnt occur to you to write any of this down ?

You stated the horses have a lot of mud in their pasture, & the feed isn't to your standards-but -are the horses skinny? Are his four other horses in better shape, or the same? Have you emailed or talked to him since seeing your horses? Were you there when he wasn't? Do you have ownership papers/bills of sale for them? Wishing you good luck to a speedy solution. Please-always get it In Writing!

I would say, "thank you so much for taking care of my horses for me. We are settled now, and would like to bring them to our house. How much do I owe you for keeping them? Is $2200 okay? That is $100 per horse per month."

I just talked to him. He said he knows they are in bad living conditions but has come across hard times and is doing all he can for them. I've never heard him like this before. Instead of taking the horses from him, all his horses are coming here and my husband and I are fixing his property. Before they come we are signing a contract stating why his horses are here and he has agreed to sign two contracts for our two horses stating the terms set last year. These will include terms of non payment of the horses and me being able to get mine back at any time with a board payment.

Its not like they are down the street from us. They are hours away. We tend to stay very busy with our business, school, kids and life. Our first vacation in over 2 years was this past weekend. We drove from NC to SC so we could see the horses for 15 minutes before he turned around and drove to northern KY for a one night get away.
