Do you have a written boarding contract? Does it have lien language? Did you deliver the hay? If the answers are No, No, and Yes, you can not directly lien the horses, however, you can file in small claims court, get a judgment, then use the judgment to levy on the horses. This is a matter of State law. I would strongly suggest that you consult with a local attorney (perhaps selected from the AVVO website resources) with experience in this area of law, to offer a free initial consultation and perhaps assist with the process.
