paying for a dead horse?
Last week one of the horses that belonged to a boarder was found dead in the pasture. She was just laying there, no blood, no broken bones, no sign of struggle, and had a mouthfull of grass. The vet thinks it was heart failure . Now, the owner had made a few payments on the horse, but had not payed for all yet. I overheard another boarder talking to the previous owner, and they were discussing whether or not he should expect the remainder of the money, or even ask for it. I didn't butt in, but I would still expect a good faith payment for the rest of the horse. I never heard any mention of a contract, so I assume if they don't want to pay, the previous owner is out of luck. What is evetyones else's thoughts? Would you expect the remaining payments, or would you write it off as a loss. Would you even ask for the remainder under the circumstances? The horse was only 800$ to begin with, not sure how much they got paid.
