In january 2010 I came across my current horse "Jett" on dreamhorse.com where he was for sale or lease. When I arrived at the farm I found a hairy underweight draft cross that hardly looked like any of the picture I had seen. He hadnt been ridden for nearly a year, during that time he was either in a stall or in a 20x20 dry lot. He had NO muscle mass left on him. His feet were over grown and his teeth hadnt been done in over 4 years. He was generally in poor condition. I got on him for no more that 15 minutes. He was perfect, the worst thing he did was sorta jump into his canter. I figured anything that kind deserved to at least be given a chance, so I took him home with me that afternoon.
Because his owner had to have him out of the stable asap (she owed months of backboard and the farm manager was threatening to send him to auction) I left the farm without a contract, because she hadnt prepared one. Plans were made to mail a contract. It is now the 26th of june (almost 5 full months later) I still have not recived a contract. Also I have barely heard anything from his owner. When she does send me something, its an email (ive gotten 2 in 5mo) asking when im showing next. I'll reply... Nothing back, i'll ask about the contract... Still no reply.
I love this horse beyond belief, and I would like to become his true owner. Legally is there any way I can do this? Because he has been neglected before, he's been in my care for months w/o a contract and the owner has not made effort to send a contract. Please help.
