W 11

11. Charny asks:   Men at arms meet each other in the field and fight each other and at the clash a man at arms knocks one of his enemies to the ground with the stroke of his lance, and out of the saddle, and the horse runs on.   And the companion stops over him whom he has struck down both to take and protect him, and he does that.  Another companion sees the horse, which the first does not appear to have taken, and he takes it and leads it away.  When evening comes the one who struck down the man at arms asks for the horse as rightfully being his; the one who has the horse, refuses.  Many good arguments are put forward about it on one side or the other.  How will it be judged by the law of arms?
