They were brought to our barn for two days, they left on a Wednesday, I thought their owner paid my BO and they were brought home, but then I was looking through Camelot Weekly and their owner posted looking for them on the page. She still hasn't found them.

    I'm behind on payments because my BO made a deal with my dad that we would only pay twice a year rather than every month. I never liked the idea but I can't go anywhere until we pay her.

    I am now even more confused. The owner of these horses left with 2 horses, and left these 2 behind? She then did not pay for their board for about 2.5 yrs? SO why were they moved to your barn at all? I would think the original place that had kept them for the 2.5 yrs would have sold them off for back board.

    I cannot have a whole lot of sympathy for someone who didn't pay for 2.5 yrs and now wants the horses back. Sorry.

    ^Well, if the owner was two and a half years behind on board, then there's not much she can do except find her horses and buy them back.
    I don't now the exact logistics of the laws here in CO, but a horse can be surrendered in lieu of board. I've seen it happen.

    Regardless as to what the deal is, I hope she finds her horses. ):

    I have boarded at places that will take your horse after 30 days. In this day and age of folks dumping horses, it only makes sense to me. As long as you pay your bills, there is not an issue. If you don't, well-sorry. I certainly would not expect someone to pay them for me. Besides that, most BO's do this as a last resort, at least the ones I know. Typically, if yo communicate with them something can be worked out. But, if you basically desert them-yeah-I get the BO selling them.

    It sounds like the BO had the right to sale them, but your story is really confusing.
    Did the original owner move them to a new barn and the old BO came and got them?
    It's possible the old BO had a court order to take them and then the original owner moved them trying to prevent that.

    Most BO's actually lose more money seizing a horse for non-payment with court costs and other expenses involved. As a small business even if something is stated in a contract, you still want to make sure all your i's are dotted and t's are crossed before you do something like that.

    Noo, I'm so bad at describing the scenario.

    The woman had her horses at our barn and took them to her home about 2-3 years ago. I don't know how much she owed my BO. We haven't heard from or about the woman until December.

    I don't want to blow the whole thing out of proportion, we just want to know where the horses are and if they are safe, not asking for sympathy or anything, just hoping someone knows where they are.

    I understand that. Noone really "wins" in this scenario.

    The OP asked a straight question - Does anyone know of the whereabouts of these two horses or how they might be traced
    She did not ask to have her story questioned or dissected and discussing legal issues is really not relevant since the horses have gone
    My best advice is that the owner contacts Camelot Auctions and asks if they might be willing to contact the buyer. There will be a record of the sale and the horses sold there have to have a current Coggins now so it wouldn't be difficult to identify them and associated them with a buyer

    My BO DID have a right to sale! I'm not saying she didn't. I don't care about that, I don't even care if the owner gets them back, I just wanted to know if anyone in the NJ area has seen them. I am worried about them, only because they are so old and in bad condition. I would just like to know if they found their way to a safe place. That's all their owner wants too. She stated, " I just want my boys to live out their retirement in peace".

    I have looked through Camelot's webpages tons of times, there are no pictures of these two. I have no idea where else they could be, I'm just hoping they're safe. That's all I care about.

    My second post said that I knew it was perfectly legal for my BO to take them to the auction. I explained the story the best I could, I'm only trying to make sure they didn't end up going to slaughter. I realize that I may never know. They're not mine, I'm not looking for sympathy or consolation or anything of the sort.

    This post was only meant to alert people in New Jersey to keep a look out for these two geldings - and if anyone has seen them or knows of there whereabouts, I hope they will contact me.

    Thank you
