We will be fixing the pasture and the horses will be here in the mean time. We will let him take the horses back but if the pasture ends up in bad condition again, we will take them back. We currently do not have a contract with him, so he technically doesn't have to give us the horses at all.
We are trying to work it in a way that will legally allow us to take the horses back. He is talking now about the horses staying here because he has to many. This is totally fine with us. Right now our only concern is getting all of the horses out of that environment.
The only reason I would let the horses go back is for the same reason I let them go to him in the first place. I know he loves them and would do anything he can for them. He is 41 years old and just got 3 stints put in his heart and lost his job. The horses will be in a better place here. If and when they go back, it will not be until there pastures are lush in grass. We will provide everything he needs for all the horses there until he is on his feet. At that point he will pay us back for my husband's horse but nothing else. If he ever gets in this position again he is to inform us so we can help with the horses. In the contract we will be able to take them back without notice if the pastures are not well kept and the horses provided good hay.
