I am guessing this will end in me getting someone to take me down and going from there whether to try to get her or file for court. I also have to file to go to court in her town which doesnt seem quite fair to me,but oh well on that. Phew....I guess the main lesson I have learned is don't ever buy a horse sight unseen...even from a bigwig seller. Bah humbug...
    6-7 hours is not that far to have bought an expensive horse sight unseen. Something just doesn't add up. If you can afford that horse you can hire someone to take you there and go get it. I thought maybe it was across the country from you and then I would have flown to see it. I am assuming (going out on a limb here) that you had a vet examine her before purchase? Call the vet and ask him if he knows anything

    You have a lawyer. I would discuss the whole issue with the lawyer and do as they suggest. No one here will know the ins and outs of the legal system where you and the horse are better than your lawyer.

    Seriously. I drove 14 hours one way to take a look at a horse in which I was interested in rescuing. Find somebody to take you and a trailer over there and get your mare.

    FOR SURE! Laws are different in each state. You do not need advice that could get you in trouble.

    I would not go to their property or remove the horse without going through the legal process first.

    Speak with your attorney - yesterday - and proceed as per their recommendation(s).

    All the lawyer is saying is to take them to court....I would...but my point is I actually wanted the horse and I was just wondering if I legally had the right to pick her up without notice.
    Churumbeque- I never said that I couldnt afford someone to take me down there? I said it was a REALLY bad time. I am having 2 screws and bone grafts put into my ankle anytime. In fact I have the last pre-surgery CT scan today. I am going to be really busy and recovering with that.

    The vet did examine her,but after a couple emails the seller said she switched to a cheaper vet whom she is refusing to give me the name...I don't even know for sure if there is/was a vet involved at all.

    Coffegod- no...it isnt that long of a trip..I too have driven a LOT LOT further for a horse. Im just not sure I could work out going.

    Bah...thanks again for the different views. I need to make a deciscion soon I guess. I could try to run down before the surgery. Or I could just go ahead and file the court papers and forget the whole thing :(

    Ask your lawyer "can I legally go there and take my mare?".

    Direct and to the point.

    If you have the paperwork that proves you own the horse, it should be a done deal.

    Ortho surgeries are generally scheduled well in advance.
