I understand where you are coming from as I am in close to the same situation. I have 2 of my daughter's horses on my property. One was given to her and her ex husband for their son. The giver kept the registration papers in his name and gave them the paint gelding under the condition they would never sell him and if they couldn't keep him anymore to bring him back across the street to them.
My daughter is moving about 15-20 miles further out from us and wants to take the horse with her to her and her bf's place. I have to go talk to the guy about it and plan on giving only two options because neither me or my daughter wish to have someone holding something over our head. He can either sign the registration over to her so she can take the horse to the new property or I'll walk him back across the street. I'm not concerned about the costs associated with him while in my care because to me it was a free lease if he takes him back. I really like the horse a lot and so does the rest of the family, but we have no desire to allow someone to have that control over our decisions in animal care.
I already told my daughter I would give them my 4 yr old dun to have trained for my grandson since she is already attached to my daughter's standardbred mare. This will leave me with 3 geldings on property and no more marish attitudes. lol
