It's going to depend upon local law.

You should contact your lawyer if this is something that affects you. Sometimes it's written into your board contract.

it was more of a verbal agreement, my father in law has paid his boarding fee's over at my sister in law's place for the past 2 years.....about 6 months ago he stoped paying altogeather, my sister in law has paid for everying including worming and shots on both is horses since then. (i only found out this today) , we're not sure what is happening with him...he hasnt' paid us rent in 5 months either, but yet tends to spend money in other places!!, we're just wondering if we can seiz his tack and 2 ponies (not for resale) but to start to take better care of them.

Boy, I'd doubt it. I'd speak with a lawyer. Sounds like both of you need to write up agreements. Is he having symptoms of dementia? You might want to speak with a local elder advocate.

I THINK it's 3 months.

I had a horse on my property (It was actually dumped on my property - can you believe people dump horses?), I ran an ad under legal notices basically saying To the person that left the 10 year old bay paso fino gelding at (my address). Please provide xx$ for 3 months board or the horse will be sold to recoup the money owed.

I gave the horse away....

Where I currently board, if the horses aren't paid for 30 days, they can put a lien against the horses and I believe sell them for the amount owed. Though it does depend on each boarding stable and the state law.

If you sister has paid for everything for the ponies, you could just take them out of there (give the 30 days notice and take them). Though if they need this month's board (or any money for that matter) they must be paid before taking the ponies.

I think the problem you're going to have is that this is family and you've not had a contract. I really think you need legal advice.

I know that laws are different throughout the US, but I live in Texas and a few weeks ago during my horse hunt I went and looked at a mare that was a "repo" so to speak. Her owners stopped paying her board- so the barn owner took possesion and put her up for sale in order to collect back rent.

Contract or not, you probably want to go through the legal process to avoid a potential problem later. These situations are always a hassle.
