    It's a tricky situation. My opinion is that regardless of the law you shouldn't just ignore the situation.

    From what the breeder wrote to you, to me it doesn't sound like she's demanding the horse back, but just inquiring who your bought it from. If she sold multiple horses to someone she could have lost a lot of money. If you have a bill of sale and have owned and cared for the horse for two years I would think that the breeder would have a hard time claiming the horse back this far down the track. She would have to prove her ownership as well as explain why she has not yet pursued this.

    I'd just tell her the situation, say that you bought your horse two years ago with a bill of sale and had no idea of this situation. Even tell her how great a horse she has been and how much you love her. Tell her you have been trying to contact the seller to get the papers but have been unable to, and pass on the contact details you have.

    Ignoring the situation doesn't make it go away. If she pursues it further then contact a lawyer.

    No lawyer at this time as it may not be necessary. If someone were to attempt to claim the horse you are allowed to claim fair and reasonable espenses. I don't think anyone will want to pay that. I just submitted this as a new thread. Direct your correpondance to the registry. Keep it brief. Tell them only that you have not as yet received the reg. Paper as promised and what can you do. They don't need the whole story. Wait until you hear from them before you decide your next move. Please let us know what you learn.
    If an animal is sold as purebred, as registered,
    or as eligible to be registered, the seller is obliged to
    provide a duly transferred certificate of registration
    to the buyer within 6 months of sale.
