Ah, I didn't think so. Thanks for the info, friends. ^^

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

California has brand inspectors. You can track cattle thieves and horse thieves by branded hides. They go to the auctions, feed yards etc. I think every state should have them.
TC I did have a nice Christmas, I hope you did too.

While no one likes to be called names or have insults thrown at them, I think you will the find the courts will very unsympathetic towards this approach. It could actually hurt your case and damage your credibility.
You must be very organized and professional. Be polite towards your nemesis and treat this solely as a business matter. It should not come across as adversarial.
You simply wish to state your case and ask that justice be done.
You then have to accept the outcome.

It may very well be a lot of drama for a self-assigned value of $500.00, especially in absence of any documents.

I wish you the best !

I was given a horse after his previous owner was caught making meth & fled up North to avoid police. He had his horse boarded at his cousins house. We had a written agreement saying that if his owner showed back up within 30 days, I would give the horse back. He didn't show up. Four months later, his mother decided to call us up & give us all sorts of h*ll about how she wanted her horse back & to give her our address so she could come pick him up. I told her no. So she decided to cuss myself & my fiance out over how we "stole" the horse & proceeded to take us to court. She had fake pictures of the horse as a foal (he has one hind half stocking & a blaze, she had pictures of a colt with two hind stockings & a star with a snip) & she studdered through the whole ordeal. The judge ruled if she was willing to pay $2600 for him (the cost of board/feed/training/vet expenses) she could have him back. Needless to say, she didn't pay for him & then texted us again later that week saying she was taking us back to court in her state & would have the horses previous owner before them there to vouch for her buying him. Well, we never got the subpoena for court, so he is legally ours now. The bad thing is when I was given him, he had a 5" deep, 3 finger wide hole in his chest from a t post where the man chased him up on it. He had no ground manners, refused to be caught, scared to death, was flank kicked & hit with a 2x6 on his underbelly when he wouldn't stand, & under saddle when he spooked/refused something he was spurred like crazy. His wonderful previous owner had stolen ***32*** horses so far from TN, KY, IN, & IL, made, sold, & used meth, had 7 warrants out for his arrest, has a rape charge, & 3 assaults on officers! So needless to say I was thrilled when I got the letter saying Hustler was mine for good!

Sit tall in the saddle, hold your head up high, keep your eyes fixed where the trail meets the sky, & live like you aint afraid to die, & don't be scared, just enjoy your ride.
