It doesn't look good for you that you basically caved and gave her everything. It might not even have been a forgery. Some vets see HUNDREDS of horses and simply cannot remember them all. The money should just have gone back, pony returned, Coggins sorted out, then pony sold. By rolling over, you made yourself look guilty and bad.

I'm confused too. Why would you just give the horse away? If you were worried it would turn into a big deal, why not take the horse back and give the buyer their money back?

I would have paid for the coggins test to be redone and if that didn't make the buyer happy then I would have ended the sale. I find it hard to believe that a vet could remember whether or not he performed a coggins test on said animal, just based on looks, most vets see a lot of animals, and since horses probably don't go the vet but once a year I would find that hard to believe. Now if the vet looked at the papers and his ID number and his signature did not match then I could see the vet denying he pulled the blood for the test. I would have let her take me to court.

It's over now though, if you didn't consider it cost effective to defend yourself then why do it now, since more then likely you will look more guilty since you just paid and refunded money to make the whole thing go away.

And this person is ”a good home”?

Naw Silent, it's because the whole thing is rather confusing no matter how it's interpreted.

You got scammed big time. All you had to do was get a new coggins and give it to new owner. There is nothing she could call the cops/ac on, you did nothing wrong. Probably the only thing somebody could have called you on was the fact you used an old Coggins, but should not have mattered if it was done within a year(or 6 months depending on your state laws).But still nothing the authorities could have done, you didn't make up false coggins,if they are false, the old owners, whose name are on the coggins papers are the ones who did forgery. THEY would be breaking the law, not you.
Yep, you got scammed. The owners got a new pony, the agent got their money and you got nothing......... I would also be checking to make sure the pony is actually in a good home. Because the new owners never spent a dime, the pony could easily end up with meat buyers,or being sold to someone else for more money.......

I wouldn't have given them the pony. You should have just said that is what was given to you and it is the buyers responsibility to do a vet check and coggins. Not sure why you felt black mailed into giving the pony away that wasn't yours to begin with.
