Would you feel the owner of the horse owed YOU anything for the amount you put in?
Just curious what your thoughts are on this.
NO the owner of the horse owes you nothing and depending on the reason the horse dies it might be that you owe them money for the cost of replacing the horse. When I lease out a horse there is an understanding that the value of the horse is X amount and if for any reason the horse should die while in the lessors care they must pay X amount for the horse. I always recommend insurance on any horse leased.
What they put into the horse while leasing the horse is what is agreed to and spelled out in the lease agreement. If the lessor did not like that agreement then they should have not agreed to it.
