Today I received a phone call from a friend about her Gr Daughter.
This young girl was given a horse by her mother for Christmas.
The horse supposedly came from a rescue agency.
This 16 YO child is now pregnant and no longer lives with her mother.
The mothers ex boyfriend has demanded the horse be removed from his pasture by friday afternoon.
If that horse was adopted from a rescue agency does the agency need to be informed of where the horse is?
I have no problem bringing the horse here.
However I do want to avoid any legal issues involving the child.
I am not concerned about myself .
The Grandmother will sign a legal document for the 16 YO.
If any agency shows up with proper documentation they can have the mare.
The childs mother is NOT trustworthy.
Neither the child or the Grandmother knows where the horse came from.
Only that it was a resuce.
Can anyone give me any insight into how rescues adopt out horses and what possible responsibilities the child might have to the organization?
Being 16 and pregnant as well as on her own she does not need any more problems. Especially legal ones.
Thanks for any advice or insight you might have. Shalom
