*RANT* Either give me my money, or bring the horse back!

Alright guys, so during the beginning of December I had some people come look at my mare, they were family friends so I trusted them pretty well to keep their word and now I'm kicking myself!

They asked to take her home and said they would pay me after Christmas. Here it is FEBRUARY and they still have my horse, and I still have no money from them. Frankly, I'm PISSED. In this time, I could have sold her to someone else.

On Tuesday their son said they had sent it in the mail...Saturday and nothing. So today I called and told them either they wire the money TODAY or bring her back by tomorrow. Gaah so mad!

Has anyone else had anything like this happen?

Do you have a contract with them? If so, take them to court.

If you don't have a contract....show up in the middle of the night and take her

Yes. You just have to be upfront and keep asking. Unfortunately, paying bills and debts aren't the on the top of everyone's list.

Be prepared to go pick up your horse yourself. And then do it, if you have to.

Once. I sent a certified letter after getting no where w/ phone calls. The letter basically said that I must have the cash (no checks!) In hand by 3pm or I would be contacting the authorities about a theft. I didn't have it by 3:30 so I called the authorities. Long story short, they tried to say they hadn't received the notice. I had the signed certified mail receipt saying they did. I got my $.

I'd go pick the horse up if I were you. Unless you are close enough to know horse is still there, and alive? You have no clue what is going on. Plus they may get mad at you and take it out on horse too.

Go and rescue your horse. Heaven only knows what shape it is in now.

Horses make me a better person.

I have gone and loaded horses in the middle of night like that...if you need help let me know..lol

I have had that happen, I had a horse that has kid broke and gentle my horseshoer(who was also a friend...I thought) had a little girl that needed a horse. I traded my broke/gentle horse for shoeings. He showed up once at my house to do my horses, I still had several rounds left to go before she was "paid". Couldn't get him out for nothing! After many attempts with phone calls I went to their house to get the horse back..and they moved! LOL.

I would not wait. Banks are closed Monday so is the mail and it will give e them one more day to make excuses or take the mare. Are you absolutely sure they still have her?
Not sure how far away the horse is but go get her now or tomorrow at the latest. They have no intention of paying you for her and could either sell her or she is already gone. Just a question did you get it in writing as to when they said they would pay for her and how much?
