when I acquired dawn it was through my brother-in-law. E called me one night asking if I wanted a horse for free that was owned by a girl going to college and her father didn't want the expenses of the horse, of course I said yes but I wanted it in witting from both the girl and her father that they transferred ownership. I received it but a couple of years my brother-in-law was telling everyone he had part ownership of her. I was so glad for that transfer paper making her mine his name was not on it. I did get him to making claims of ownership when I told him I was going to send him a bill for half the board, feed, shoeing and vet costs. I too have papers and have had papers on my registered horses but when a third party is involved I want a bill of sale or transfer from the owner.
With Toby I have both and glad to have them because she also was third party horse and her former owner ( I found out because she contacted our granddaughter) lives only a few minutes away from where keep her and just showed up uninvited to our stable when we were no there. I promptly let the stable owner know the situation and he agree not to let her come unless we are there and give permission
