If the adopter breaks a condition for not properly taking care of the horse or sells the horse within 12 months, the adopter can be fined for X amount of money or imprisonment no more than 1 year. Can this stand up in a court of law? There must be a difference between adopting and buying a horse!
If this relates to the Feds, mustang adoption, yes they
I had a boarder that paid $2500 at mustang makeover, then he disappeared after a few months. The BLM contacted me for the inspection. I told them I had no idea where the boarder was, but I would like the papers so that I could sell the horse for back board lien.
I was told I could not sell the horse, and no, my service board lien did not come before the Federal government
...? They did offer to allow me to "adopt the horse for another year
" and then sell him! Told them to take a flying leap and come get the horse, that I was tired of feeding him for free!
Makes a BO think twice before taking a mustang to board... I wonder with hobbyhorse, if a "rescue" would also be before
a "service lien?"
