So, I just adopted a horse this month. However, I have not received the paperwork from the previous owner so I can put her in my name. I have a gut feeling it is going to turn into a huge thing. We do not have a bill of sale as she kept making comments about how she "is not a horse snob" and how she would get it to me later. I did get a pre-sale vet check.
My questions are: How do I get her in my name? What kind of paperwork do I need and how do I request it?
The previous owner did mention that when she bought the horse I adopted four years ago, she never put the horse in her name. Will that effect anything. I have known her daughter for 16 years, so I have no reason to think the horse is stolen, etc. It's just that there is some drama going on in her life and if I can do this without causing a rift between my friend and myself, I would prefer it. Any ideas would help. Thank you.
