    If this is JB. Get with local police, seems like she has enough warrents. Get her A$$ arrested, demand the courts get your filly back.

    All I can say is I am SO sorry you are having to go through this!

    I have nothing to suggest as I have never gone through it, but from what you say it seems like you have covered all your bases.

    I wish you the best of luck in finding her! I hope everything works out!! {{fingers crossed}}

    I like how it took exactly one guess to figure out who you were talking about, that means the word is getting out so hopefully nobody else will have to go through this in the future. Jingles for a happy outcome. Fight like hell.

    Sadly, you don't have to give names for people to know exactly who you're talking about. Even though you know where your filly "should" be you might want to list her on NetPosse.com

    Make sure everyone knows that she is, in fact, stolen.

    Sigh, all I had to read was the third paragraph about the "stallion owner" purchasing the mare and foal on payments to know who it was Why, why is this still happening? Honestly, it is like a car crash taking 3 years to finally come to a complete stop.

    Well, if you are in need of a certified Equine Appraisal for your court case, I would be happy to offer my services pro bono. At this point, the entire equine community needs to start rallying together and getting this breeder STOPPED!

    No one had to name names. We all know who you are speaking about. Good luck getting your filly back, I hope it is quickly and uneventful.

    What a horrible situation... you might be able to contact warmblood.com, dream horse, equine now, to alert them of the situation and possibly prevent the sale of your yearling.

    You should be going directly to the person whose property this horse is on, and mention that you will be suing them as well. Or, just go and pick said horse up I doubt an associate of this person will enjoy the fees and headache associated with this ordeal.

    It's a small world, if this horse is listed for sale, you should be able to locate it. Whatever happens once the horse is located, well,

    Pretend to be a buyer interested in her, or get a friend to do it? Maybe then you'll be able to find out where the horse is? What a terrible situation

    If you already have a lawyer involved, have him take a look at whatever the state law is that is comparable to replevin. You also have a tort claim for conversion.

    Talk to the person who went through something very similar with Grand Saber and/or some of his offspring. Her experience was a true nightmare.

    I have a friend, who had her horse stolen by someone who was leasing it as a lesson horse. They sold the horse, and continued to tell her it was being used for lessons.

    She effectively used netposse to both find the horse and embarrass the heck out of the leasor -so that she crept back into her hole was it was all over.

    Netposse is a tool worth considering.

    This is just so crazy. I can't believe this stuff is going on, yet she keeps posting photos all over facebook like all is well. Unbelievable.

    I would also make up flyers and send them around the every feed store, tack shop, Veterinarian, Farrier, boarding stable,etc. in that area. Someone knows where this yearling is being hidden. Put on the flyer that the person who has this yearling can be facing legal problems but if they contact you and return him you won't go after them. Your lawyer will know the wording to use.

    Also contact the local newspaper - if they won't do an article consider taking out an advertisement.

    If this person is illegally listing your horse for sale on websites, why don't you contact those sites and have the ads removed? At least while you are looking for her you can make it more difficult for the filly to be sold.
