    So my dad surprised us by coming out last night. (2 hr drive from home now) I told him I was really upset about Mr. Z selling Moose. He said, "Oh, I know. The people who bought him wanted to bring him back because he was bucking and kicking and rearing up and running off with them."

    I said, "What the hell did they do to him?"

    He says, "I don't know, but they had 3 trainers out to work with him and he wasn't working out I guess."

    I said, "That's rediculous, there was absolutely NOTHING wrong with that horse outside of that stupid fungus when I left! He rode around just fine!"

    "Well, Mr Z said he was dangerous, so they sold him to this guy who was supposed to keep him as a pasture ornament, but supposedly put a little kid loose on him and he darted."

    I just don't understand. This just chaps my hide so bad.

    Kevin, I don't know if we have the brand inspection law, which would be good to find out. I'm looking that up as I type. Apparently it's not mandatory... here's the page I found for it...
    Kansas Animal Health Department

    Ugh. I don't know what to do. I have the facilities, but Chris doesn't necessarily want him back, because it would cost us $500 income a month to keep him. If I could somehow work out other arrangements for board somewhere close for fairly cheap, I would. I know that if Chris could put 30 rides on him we'd be able to find him a nice home ourselves. I don't know what to do. I have never rehomed a rescue that I can't follow up on, even still.

    I will certainly let everyone know how this conversation goes. There will be one, it'll be face to face, the first weekend of June when we get back home ourselves. Until then, I'll be thinking of things to say. Any other ideas pop into your head, let me know!

    Sorry for the double post. I just explained to my dad that I thought this was all just like a free lease, like they'd feed him as long as they were using him, and bring him back when they were done. He said, "I did too, that's what he told me, that's the only reason I even told him he could use him, cause I knew you'd get him back whenever you asked, or they'd want to buy him from you and you could have the money out of him. I didn't expect this to happen either."

    Goes to show, no matter what you do, get it in writing, no matter how small, how petty, or how good of friends.

    Oh, Kevin, it was already snowing and in the teens by the first of October when we would have got him there, and he was really underweight. I didn't want to risk him getting sick or freezing.

    Sounds like you need to take Mr. Z to small claims court. I think you can sue for up to $5000 and I would sue for every bit of that.

    I agree--small claims seems like the best option
