Last year back in Oct. I let a friend of mine barrow my horse so she can use him to ride. However at this time I couldn't afford my horse at the time because I had no job/time. In the beginning we talked of how everything is going to work about but now everything is a verbal agreement. We talked about you are doing a 'free lease' on my horse and that I still own my horse and when I want him back I can take him back. My friend even said that samething when I want him back I can come over and get him and I have a witness stating that she said that.
Now six-seven months later I found a decent job....I want my horse back. I tried getting a hold of this friend for the past two weeks I was telling her I'm going over to see my horse and I want to ride him. I gotten a text message from her 'Doc and spot are not available.' Doc is my horse, I texted her back asking her 'what do you mean my horse isn't available?'. She texted me back saying my horse went to camp. Two days later I called her up telling her I want to see my horse, she tells me my horse fallen on the trails and maybe broke his leg. And then she tells me that my horse died from a twisted gut from the 'fall'. I asked her four times I want paperwork from a vet and I want to see my horse dead so I have prove that my horse is dead. During the four times I asked her she never gave me an answer and she would change the subject.
The next day I heard from a friend that my horse is alive and that she sold my horse. I also have heard from a friend that she has done this several times where she will tell the owners the horse is dead but the horse isn't she sold the horse. After that I went to the police to file a report that she told me my horse is dead and I want answers. She told the cops that my horse is dead and then the next day since I wasn't getting anywhere I went to the town court to file a small claims court to either get my horse back or $2,000 (how much my horse is worth). I have paperwork of this horse (coggins,rabies,pictures that I own this horse). Now last week I heard from a friend that she sold my horse for $300! but yet she told the cops that my horse is dead! But yet she told EVERYBODY else that she sold my horse. Ok, my horse is technically stolen property! I want my horse back, I never gave her paperwork stating that I sold her my horse, so I want my horse back.
About a month has gone by and nobody knows where my horse actually is. I've been looking at the brokerlots for my horse. The court date is June 19th and I am nervous I really want my horse back. Who do you think is going to win the case? Me or her? I also have text messages from her saying that my horse went to camp and I have a witness when she told me that I can take my horse back. And I also filed a report to the cops.
