Sorry, missed that. I would press the issue, then, and threaten to get the authorities involved. It's unlikely they would do anything... but maybe the idiot owner doesn't know that and would just relinquish the horse.

I do wonder why you're keeping your animal in such an obvious hell-hole, though.
I was under the impression that she was purchasing the horse from said hellhole.

Nope, read her second sentence, first paragraph. She stated SHE was boarding the horse at this particular barn.

Regardless of the opinion of a now-banned poster about people having poor reading comprehension, I think mine is pretty good.

It would be better for everyone concerned if the owner turned the horse over to the OP, instead of her having to take him to court. The horse for sure would be happier with someone who actually cared about him.

AAAH okay. I fully admit to quickly scanning posts (when I'm supposed to be working... shhh don't tell!!!!) and likely missing a few details.

I think we've all done the same thing at times.

take what you have and see an attorney for advise. Most do not charge for the initial consultation. It might be that they can draft a letter for a small fee, sometimes that is all it takes to scare people into paying. Good luck!

The outside of a horse is good for the inside of man.........unknown

Hoping to learn how this all goes.

Everything that happens, be it the good, the bad and the downright miserable define who we are.

The person that owns the stallion should be paying the bill. The stallion did the damage and if the place isn't sturdy enough to keep horses in and out then there are other problems.

Obviously the guy can't afford the care of the gelding and wqas put ion a position and really didn't have a choice.

Years ago a stallion broke out and hurt my gelding and the stallion owners paid the bill. That doesn't sound like a good place to board a horse.

It's the choice of a horse owner to board at any given facility. ANY horse can cause injuries to another horse. Stallions add to that possibility.

Why should the stallion owner be held accountable?

What an absolute mess. First, you need to get your mare out of there and into a better place.

Second you need to call animal control or whoever deals with that in your area.

Third, reconfirm with your vet that he is willing to go to court with you - if so, file a claim at small claims court.

that would be the same as saying if a dog gets loose and attacks another dog that dog owners not responsible . it is the owners responsibility to keep the horse confined it so that it cant injure anyone else . if it had been a gelding it would not have went after the other gelding like that . that is what gives stallions a bad name a lot of people won't board a stallion . if you choose to send your kids to school and other kid hurts him he's not responsible becaus. e you chose to send your kid there ?
