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??
