Just so you are aware, this case would not by any stretch of the imagination hold up as being in any way comparable to stealing a car.
The child was tempted by a pretty horse that was left unattended. The child was able to handle said calm horse and was able to tack this horse up - meaning said horse was calm enough to be handled by a child. All while this is happening, nobody has noticed that this child is handling a young stallion, even though there are stable hands nearby? Why was she not told off by one of the stablehands? If she could have asked them for a different horse, then they could have told her that the stallion was not to be touched.
Then, said kid rides past you on said horse. Said horse is calm until said kid does something to set it off. Said horse tries rearing and bucking to get said kid off, which would frighten any kid. Said horse then crashes through a fence and throws said kid off.
Said kid can claim that she was so scared she didn't know what to do.
If you have never seen her act this way, that can be a plea of temporary insanity (or thereabouts) in court.
Said kid can also sue for damages from you.
THEN said horse can no longer be touched. By YOUR story, this horse has been without proper vet care for a week. If the horse absolutely cannot be sedated, then this horse also cannot be touched, meaning that his wounds are probably going to get infected. On top of that, the horse hasn't eaten or drank?
No, I'm sorry, this story doesn't add up.
Like Vida said, TOTALLY unbelievable.
