My divorce agreement states: "The horse owned by the parties shall be owned by my ex-wife. I shall maintain the horse at the Martial Home (I live there, she lives in a new house) and shall pay all costs associated with boarding (including food and shoeing) through summer 2012. The horse shall be sold by Sept 2013. If the horse is not sold by the time I sell the marital home, the cost of the horse boarding shall be split between the parties 50/50." I put my house up for sale as it said to in our agreement. My house is NOT sold. I was happy to board the horse, however my ex-wife decided to move the horse early in July 2013. And now she is asking me to pay for the boarding 50/50 at a expensive sale barn for July & Aug, and pay for all shoeing and tons of vet bills to top it off. Do I have to?Info to add: The divorce settlement incorrectly said I shall maintain the horse through summer 2012. It was a typo we didn't catch, and I verbally committed to board the horse through summer 2013. She chose to move the horse to another facility, not me. Boarding at my house is way cheaper than paying a sale barn, but she chose to move the horse on her own. I DID already pay her for July and August boarding, to help her out, and shoeing. But are all the vet bills mine to pay? She is insisting on those payments as well.
