    I wonder if youre close enough for our BO to be of any assistance. She has her hands in some local arab & rescue circles. I dont think they can come get it but maybe something ca be worked out on the grapevine..
    I would also vote send certified letters that say they have x amount of time to re/move the horse, or its considered abandoned and will be dealt with promptly and personally.

    I'd haul or pony the horse down there with a bill of sale. Not really your problem, and makes it harder to ignore when you are sitting in the driveway. I think you can ask a cop to escort you if need be.

    Either they can take the horse or sign the bill of sale (for a dollar or whatever).

    Sorry you wound up in her problems. I'd send her the thirty day letter. I've got a reluctance to get involved with people going through substance abuse problems. Seems they often dump the issues they can't deal with in your lap. Good luck. I don't actually blame the fiancé, he's probably fed up and about to bail.

    Is calling her, explaining you really don't have the funds/time/space to continue caring for her horse, and just offering to sell it for her not an option?

    I've explained this to her again and again. If I could afford another horse, I'd have another horse. Simple as that. She won't pick up her phone anymore. Too much effort

    You did a favor and she took advantage of it. Haul that horse to her place and leave it. It's not your responsibility to take care of it.

    In my state you can put a lien against a bordered horse when the board is not paid. Thirty days after the lien is registered if it isn't paid the BO can sell the horse.

    Each state has slightly different laws. Anyone boarding a horse, whether they have a contract or not, is a keeper of livestock, and has to follow those laws. You can't just sell the horse. You have to go through the sheriff, do the required paper work and wait the correct amount of time. The person has to be notified in the right way, too. Read the laws for your state, and check your local laws for any additional requirements. All those laws are online and can be looked up easily.

    My guess is that the woman is very troubled, and is having serious emotional problems and is in a very bad situation. When a person is troubled, they may dearly love their horse but still not be able to take care of it or pay the bills.
