Unhappy Illegal sale of mini horses in Florida

So heres my story: Earlier this year I decided to leave the life I had in Florida and move home to Colorado. I left my 5 miniature horses with my niece, I gave her 2 mares and a stud and all I wanted was my one mare and one stud (whom stated she would bring them to me in a couple of months). I was leaving a really bad marriage and seemed that when family offers help Its safe enough to take it. Well long story short I recently found the 2 horses she agreed to bring to me on craigslist and horsetopia for sale. Now my question is what can I do to get the horses out of her hands because she in insistant on not letting them get picked up by a friend of mine willing to transport them half way. Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Do you have any written contract? If not, it's your word against hers and you may sadly be out of luck.

In ohio it is grand theft. I dont k.ow about anywhere else. If they are registered in your name you surwly can take legal action.

what are they worth? How long has she had them? She may rightfully have a lien on them for caring for them for however long.

possession is 9/10ths of the law. and unless you have a contract you are probably out of luck.
Even if you did suit for the horses and win ,which I doubt, I would imagine you will then be counter sued for board and food.

I would imagine that if they are registered in your name, they are your horses - no matter where they are being boarded.....

registration is pretty meaningless and does little to nothing to prove ownership. Horses arnt titiled and there is no requiremnt to ever update registration papers with a breed registry. Breed registries have little to no legal standing especially if you have left a horse for what 6 months half a country away, and current person says you gave them the horse. Without a contract, or 6 months of canceled board checks you got an uphill battle. SOrry but thats probably reaity. How much are the horses listed for, offer to buy them. I imagine probably less than what FMV of board would have been.
