I'm confused.

I think that your brother in law was given two horses and a pony and one of the horses he picked up was the wrong one? Is that right?

I can see that you are concerned for these horses' welfare. But none of that changes the fact that this other guy is the rightful owner. As far as I know, the authorities are the only ones legally allowed to sieze an animal due to neglect/mistreatment. And usually the owner gets a warning or two before those measures are taken.
Not all horse owners provide they same level of love and care. But that doesn't mean they are less entitled to get their property back. If the horse is not returned, your bro in law will be the one in trouble with the law. Horse theft is a crime.

Green Broke
Add to that the fact that it wasn't Mickey who was neglecting the horses, it was the doctor who previously owned the property. If Mickey was paying to have his horse kept there, or had some other arrangement for care worked out, he very well may have been going on good faith that his horse was being cared for. Only to show up and find his horse had been given away due to a simple mix up, and that now the people don't want to give his horse back? If I were him, I'd for sure try to get my horse back, and I'd tear apart anyone who tried to fight me on it. He has every legal right to have his horse, and if he pursues it through the courts, instead of just having to switch, they might lose out on having a horse at all.

Thats true about even the authorities give them notice. And yes, Day Mares he got 2 horses and one pony, but the one horse wasnt the doctors to give away. I know the one gelding was the doctors, but not sure about the pony. I wrong my brother in law on facebook and told him everything I heard. I havent told him, so before then he didnt know that he has the wrong horse. I didnt want to break his heart either. He's become attached to her. But I told him. But I really doubt this guy didnt know that the horse was being neglected since he lived in the huge farm next door to the farm. From his house he could use binoculars to see them...

So BIL messaged back and said he'll call "Mickey" tomorrow to explain that he knew nothing of this and will return and swap if its ok with him. He was upset, but hey...when ur going through a 2nd or in this case 3rd party person, you get what you get.....and he's going to ask him what e wants to do... I'll update if anyone is interested in the answer ...

Yes, keep us posted. It was not your BIL's fault he got the wrong horse initially, and I can understand him being upset, but he is doing the right thing.

He is, but also...i think she is too much for him to handle anyway...She's not well mannered actually. Not tooting my own horn, but Im the only one that doesnt let these horses push me around, and you know it. Not one of those horses crowds me, and if they come to close without asking, I just have to say back up, and they do...

However, since Im the youngest adult, and not a part of the family (altho I don't think that matters), no one listens to me when I tell them to give the horse a whack for stepping or bumping into them. So when other people go into the feild, you get excited horses expecting grain and treats, and start bumping and someone saying...."quit?".... I get so mad.... I've had my horses for 3yrs now. When I got them, my Mother in law ran out to the same guy and bought the least people friendly mare he had. She hadnt been rode in a year and she had a foal on ground and in tummy!...and then the inlaws gave her another year bc she was pregnant. She had the colt and then for some reason they gave her another...So She's 9 now with only 2yrs of riding on her....she turns her butt to you in the feild and if she sees a lead she'll walk or run from you. So they have a 2yr old a 3yr old and a 9yr old that need broke or rebroke. Hmmm? Break my horses I have? Nope! Lets spend $400 and buy another horse, and take this guys word that its broken! Why did they decide to get another horse? Well, I had my baby and my horse was 3...ready to break, and my friend began helping me do this....then in comes 3 more horses and a pony! My green broke horse can do more than all three of these "broke" horses can do. But the only time I had neglected them in training or attention is when I was pregnant last winter and everyone said Id miscarry doing all my horse chores... But after I had the baby I started again, and its like that saying I keep hearing "There are horse people, and then there are people who want to say they have horses." My bro in law is trying with this horse, but she needs a refresher, even if he keeps her, b/c she's herd sour and she refuses to move when you get on her. Im not doing it! And When that brother tried to tell the other brother to keep the reins down near his belly button the father in law says "Well, who told you that?" real smug and cocky like...And he replied, a professional trainer! And I pointed out that he was right!

WHy am I the only one who owns a hoof pick? Why are my horses the only one that goes without halters on 24/7 and will drop their head for you to put it on? Why is it, they can see what progress I have with mine, and they don't listen to me! I love working with horses, ask me I'll help! And I get so frustrated with that, that now I feel like I am being spiteful at telling him this...

Sorry I kinda vented there, and it might not have made sense....just nod, smile, and back away....

But long story short, the butt face mare actaully tried biting at me b/c I asked her to stand still and I didnt want her to eat, then she started nosing in my bucket for treats. I slapped her and she bite at me! I lunged her but until I saw sweat...she hasnt bit at me again....

But I get mad at my mother and father in law mostly, b/c they can't do anything with their horses and what was the thinking on buying a broodmare that hadnt been rode in a year then giving her two extra year, and the they have two young horses from her that need broken. Her answer when I told her she could spend that money add another $100 and a friend of mine would start and finish them after mine....she said she needs a horse to ride now... Im ranting b/c not one of them seems to understand that they need help and you learn by asking questions and actually working with the horse... you can't just run out and put the saddle on it within the first day or two of moving it and then expect it to listen...

I love horses, but we r getting too many (well, not really we have the land), but one horse is too many if you don't commit to taking care and love over it. Its more than handing treats over the fence and leading them around the barn lot...

Sorry about the rant last night, lol....anyway... he has tried to call, but hasnt got an answer. He said if he hasnt gotten ahold of him by Monday he's going to the 3rd paty friend that showed him the horses to begin with.
