    horse repo info Oklahoma

    A lady friend of my wife bought a 400$ horse at 100$ down and 50 $ per mo. from an individual. The horse owner claimed it was well broke, and appeared to be so the day she bought it. However, in the days following the horse began to buck. the buyer notified the seller and refused to pay anymore on it. The seller said he would repo the horse if she didnt pay. Buyer agreed to this. However the owner has not done this, and has left the horse with the buyer for 2 weeks now, letting her bear the cost of hay and feed. How can she get rid of the horse? Owner has threatened suit if she sells it.

    That's too bad but I guess I'm not surprised.

    Thanks Betty3! Wife says this happens frequently especially at horse auctions, where unscrupulous folks will sell problem horses that have been drug "gentled" and even sold as kid-gentle.

    (The reason I said that is if it takes a while to sell the horse & then pay the prior owner, the prior owner may not want to wait that long for his money.)
    In that case she says she will let him sue since he lied about the horse.

    I asked him about returning the horse. He won't accept it back as he is afraid it will breed his mares and it costs $125 to have it gelded. Seems to me the best solution is for her to try and sell it and then pay him off.

Let him know you are bringing it back since he hasn't come for it & leave it with him.

    I do agree that probably isn't the best option & could cause her some problems unless the owner is willing to "repo" it but just doesn't want to bother to go & get it himself.

    He can still sue no matter what, even if the horse is left with him, as I said previously if he didn't want the horse back.

    Poor horsey.
    Oh, I know that...
    It's not like you could stuff em in a basket and leave em on the door step.
    It's just that in some parts, people who dope horses are seen as something you'd scrape off the bottom of your boot after a walk in a dog park,

    Not so sure about that...

    If the horse was just left at his place, I guess he would have to accept it. However, he could still sue saying he doesn't want the horse - wants full payment for the sale.
    Yes, she could just drop the horse off and drive away, but remember, this is the kind of a guy who would sell a doped up horse, and people who would dope a horse are right up there with horse thieves.
    Should anything happen to that horse and animal control gets involved, I'll bet you dollars to donuts the first words out of his mouth will be, I sold that horse, you need to go talk to the lady who bought it.

    Trust me, I've lived there, Oklahomans take a very dim view of people who mistreat horses.
    They both could wind up getting charged with animal cruelty.

    Yes he can refuse to take the horse back.

    WHO has the horse is not the issue here.
    Payment for the debt is, and it appeares that he doesn't want the horse back, it is within his rights to sue for that payment as it is within your wifes friends rights to counter sue.
    Unless those two can settle this out of court this could wind up being one expensive horse trade!
