So I actually sat down with the sheriff's dept today and was told I cannot retrieve my horses. The law is similar to landlord/tenant, and all she has to say is I owe her money and she can seize my horses. Court paperwork is not required, unless I want to contest. This puts all burden of proof, court costs and legal fees on me .... the owner! The legal system in the US is screwed up, this woman doesn't even like horses and out of spite took my babies.

The sheriff's told me they had been called to her place numerous times .... yet considered it an 'excellent establishment' ... are they SERIOUS??? How can you have numerous calls on a reputable place?

I think I am going to sue her for negligence in the death of my QH mare since she laid in a stall for 2 1/2 days and she never called me or did anything to help her. I really don't know what else to do??

That certainly makes no sense. I would see an attorney.
its lbs not miles likes this.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Reading this thread I knew she could. Even if you haven't agreed to pay, then she makes you sign, she can take your poor horses. :( I would call an attorney. Go to court. & try to get her shut down.

Most states have a automatic service lien. When you take your car for service, they keep your car/keys until you pay. Same with boarding, if you owe any back board, the facility can keep your horses, tack, trailor and sell them for repayment. Anything above $ owed must be returned to you, if less, the facility can then take you to court for the balance owed.
