Thank you for your patience; it took a bit to download the stable keeper's statute which is codified at 35-11-70 and is below:
(a) Any keeper, owner, operator, or proprietor of any pasture kept for grazing stock or of any cattle or livestock feed or fattening lot, or any keeper, owner, or proprietor of any stable for the development or training of horses, or any person who keeps, fattens, feeds, cares for, trains, or develops any horse, horses, cattle, or livestock for another shall have a lien on all such horses, cattle, or livestock so kept, fed, pastured, trained, cared for, fattened, or developed by him, or under his control, for the payment of his charges for keeping, feeding, pasturing, training, caring for, fattening, or developing the same, and he shall have the right to retain such horse, horses, cattle, livestock, or stock, or so many thereof as may be necessary for the payment of such charges.
(b) If the charges, claims, or demands under subsection (a) of this section when due are not paid within 10 days after demand therefor, such person, keeper, owner, operator, proprietor, or trainer is authorized, on giving 10 days' notice of the time and place of such sale, by advertisement in some newspaper published in the county in which said stable, pasture, or cattle, or livestock feed or fattening lot is located, once a week for two successive weeks, or if there is no such paper, by posting the notice in three conspicuous places in the county, to sell the stock for the payment of the charges and expenses for keeping, feeding, pasturing, training, caring for, fattening, or developing said stock, and also the costs and expenses of the sale and advertising and the balance, if any, he shall pay over to the owner of such stock.
Please note that notice must be given specifically as to the date and time of the sale and any additional funds must be turned over to the owner. Under 35-12-76 if the owner cannot be located, the remaining sums needs to be turned over to the state's unclaimed property division.
