12. Charny asks: Two companions are at war with each other, so that one demands men at arms from his friends. In this company he has many horses borrowed from other people who are not in this war. So this companion rides out with all his men at arms and does great damage to his enemies. However those who have lost have recognized some of the borrowed horses. So it happens when the horses are returned to those by whom they were given, the companions whose horses have been lost find these horses and their owners and take them as in war. The owners reject this and demand their horses by right of arms, since the two groups should be at peace with each other. How will it be judged by the law of arms?
