Fifty cent pony end up being a show horse costing you thousands.

No actually these fence and range laws go back to the 1800’s. They have common law in the state along with county laws. It is as screwed up as a football bat. Selling one here is theft.

I posted this before it’s an entertaining and educational read.


Just because stray livestock are on one’s land does not mean the landowner can automatically claim them or remove them by other methods. Disposing of estrays outside of the procedure in Chapter 142 may be considered livestock theft.
