However - no contract - no proof of debt. Embarassing the person in the newspaper may have undesired results.

in the state of ohio you don't need a contract for boarders. If you board at your barn and they have nto signed one yet it doesnt matter. The state knows you arent feeding peoples animals for free

can you afford to take the loss of no board for these horses if she were to come and remove them today? If you're willing to call that good - tell her to come get them. If not, then take the next legal step to have them sold at auction. If there is no contract, there is no reason why you must keep them. Does she even have proof of ownership of these horses?

May I ask where you are?

she said NV in the original post I believe. Not sure what part. When I lived in Utah last year. Horses at public auction were going for about 40.00 a head. Even the broke ones

uh yes... i'm in nevada so I figured i'd ask where she is to give a more area specific answer... different counties, different rules a lot of time.

Hello,
Reno, NV (Washoe County).

She now has offered me the best horse in trade so I will probably do that as he is a pretty nice endurance horse. I really don't want to auction any horses and this way I can make her leave with an eviction and still keep the Lein in effect, hopefully.

She wanted to sell the best two but I do not want her bringing people on our property to show the horses anyway. One is not broke, 5 and the one I like is green and is 7. I think there priced a bit high IMHO $2400 for the green horse and $1000 for the non started horse. Both horses are registered endurance prospects with good bloodlines.

I only have 2 horses so one more works and I actually really like the horse.

I will keep everyone posted
Thanks,

yeah the market here in reno is absolute crap at the moment so she'd be lucky to get that kind of $ for unbroke/green horses, imo obviously.

I hope it all works out for you. It's sad to hear that this has happened to you because, again in my opinion only, there is a huge lack of good boarding options in this area. When something like this happens to makes it less and less likely that knowledgeable, responsible and qualified people will start or continue to offer boarding. :(

I would tell her she had 7 days to sign the contract. If she does not then at the next public auction they will all go. You will take your fee and the rest of the monies will go to a horse rescue charity. You have given ample notice and she is taken advantage of you. Have a notorized contract drawn up and send it by certified letter. She pretty much has abandoned the horses. I board, always make sure my board is paid on time but the boarding place has a couple of late payers and these peopel depend on the money to feed my horses. Good luck.

I would tell her that due to liability issues she cannot come on the property or handle her horses without signing the afore mentioned contract. You don't want to be responsible of she or the horses hurt her, themselves, or someone else and you have no contract stating who is responsible for the damages or injuries.

OK - I'm confused here...

She owes $1200.

She's giving you a horse in exchange.

So it seems to me that you are "even". She owed $1200 - she gave you a good horse.

So why do you need a Lein?

Leasing a spoiled rotten trail horse...pretty - but a brat!
