I have recently bought a horse that I was leasing for around 4 years, I will call her Amber. As part of sale I was under the impression that all her blankets, bridles, and basic equipment except the saddle would be coming with her. I have signed a bill of sale and have a contract with the barn owner for boarding there. All papers were signed around 2 weeks ago with witnesses, no issues with her items coming into my possession.
After purchasing another winter blanket for my horse she pretty much told me that she can sell the old one because I don't need 2 blankets for Amber. While I have a relatively good friendship with her previous owner I am at a loss for what to do. She is talking as if she still owns Amber and has rights to use her when ever she feels. The reason I bought Amber was she could no longer afford anything to do with horses and was leaving "the horse world" totally. She sold Amber to me and her other horse is leaving tomorrow to an entirely different barn. She has also said that she can still go out to see this other horse as she sees fit.
I don't want to lose a good friend but this is kind of rough on me. I paid 150 a month to lease Amber for 4 years, now her previous owner thinks she can use her when ever at no cost. If anyone has any advice please let me know.
