Good gracious! Can't believe your own sister would do such an awful thing! Did y'all have any agreement between the two of you? I would be more than upset, and since you have all that paperwork, you bet I'd go to the police and report what's happened! I would go after her with everything at my disposal! That's where an attorney might be helpful.
Best of luck - I hope everything works in your favor!

Hello ALL... Just got home last night from a very stressful Trip to Find My Baby Spirit.... Well I ended up not using my plane ticket. I ended up driving the 24 Hours to find Spirit. I found him and he is now home with me... He looks terrible... He lost aprox. 300-400 lbs... Rain Rot all over him (Missing Hair Everywhere), Cuts, Scrapes, *INFESTED with Ticks* and lice. Will try to post pictures so everyone can see how terrible these people were treating my baby. He is eating and drinking fine, happy to be home with his pampered life style...

Something interesting I found out when I contacted the police; They stated that they can not do anything.... If the people did not want to give Spirit to me we would have to go to court to allow the judge to choose who the owner is. Can yall beleive that?

I picked Spriit up with no trouble at all... Thank god because I was about to start killing people to get answers to the where abouts of Spirit.

It will take some time before I start to ride him again because his ribs, spine, and hips are sticking so fare out, if I were to tack him up I would break his back. With lots of TLC and LOTS of food he should be back to normal before you know it :) I am so thankful I found him and have him back in my life... He is NEVER leaving me again! God help the person who tries to F*** with my horses again... Im only 20 years old and I dont have any children but my animals are my children and I love them all very much...

Thank you for all your help and prayers...
Taylor & Spirit

i am so glad that the people that had him gave him up easily! Sorry that you had to go through that but he is back where he belongs now! :)

did those people know that your sister sold him out from under you? how did you find him?

i am sending lots of good wishes and baths and fatty foods to him and you so that he can get better soon!

How'd you find your horse? Just "looking" for it like driving around? Or did you find out who bought it? Did you go there and demand your horse's return? did the police come with you? A lawyer? Come on! Details would be nice so we all know HOW this was resolved.

I must say, if you got your horse back in THAT horrible of a condition, then you need to call the ASPCA down there and report those people! Do they treat all animals like that? Was it your sister that did this to the horse, or the new owner(s)??

It's a crime what happened, not only that your horse was sold w/out your permission, but your horse was starved and mistreated, too...

Someone's heads should roll for all of this!

At least give your sister a beat-down like she deserves for selling your horse.

First off anything I say is not intended as legal advise as I am not an attorney! You really need to contact an equine lawyer asap. If you wait too long you may loose your ability to get your horse back. If your sister did sell the horse then your only action is against her and not the purchaser unless the purchaser knew that your sister didn't have the right to sell the horse. If you think your sister may still have the horse you can file a writ of replevin. Not sure, that is why an attorney would be essential here! You cannot go on the property and take your horse back by force. But you may have the ability to trespass to reclaim your property. But like I said before you need to call a friend that is an attorney or get one on retainer before you do anything! The sheriff be unlikely to help in this situation! Always a crappy situation when family is involved! Good luck!

she posted she got the horse back but hasn't been back on the forum. I am not saying I don't believe her but the whole story seems to be missing some info. I still can't imagine sending a horse that far just to give it some time off? That is a long trip and very expensive for gas, etc. Then it would seem the relative was not a very reliable person so why entrust your horse to them? Of course we are not privy to all the details nor should we be necessarily I just think the whole things seems very odd to me.

lovemyponies i agree. i dont know how far it is from her place to the ranch but i imagine its far!! But i suppose she trusted her sister to look after her horse while he was turned out, and maybe she sent him there because it was the cheapest option instead of paying board for a horse to be turned out for a few months. However, we turn our horses out every may-july on a three acre paddocka dn they do fine (but i dont know how much land she has)

How exactly was all this resolved..?

All in all that was a horrible thing what your sister did to you!! But im glad you got him back and i wish you all the best =)

live for the good times,, forget all the bad,, love him forever and you'll be always glad!! So hug like you mean it,, and kiss in the night,, smile when they cant see and never ever fight!!

even if they drove the horse from florida to I think it was Missouri themselves it would have cost hundreds of dollars in gas to get there and then of course the return trip. I don't know if a many horses that need to be given a break much longer than a month or so unless there is something really wrong which was not indicated. (just said horse was acting up and needed some time off)

The cost of a month of board had to be less than the cost of the drive to and from the half sisters place, not to mention then you lose the ability to do ground work and work on your relationship with the horse.
Please understand I am not doubting the OP had a reason to give time off and that perhaps this seemed the best option, its just that seems like something is missing information wise to understand why she would have done this.

Oh well guess all is well that ends well.
