Thank you ToniPoni. I appreciate you looking that up!

Was there a picture?

I think the only way I will know for sure if this is my gelding is if I get him DNA tested. I can only trace him to a picture taken in 2005. After that, new owners never transferred ownership on the registry.

Thanks again!

Thank you so very much.

Wow, 6 owners, huh? I bet she's had 8 then altogether, because the folks I bought her from never transferred her to their name, nor did I.

Maybe I should, but it would cost about $60 and I don't plan to sell her (or show or breed her for that matter) and while it's only $20 to transfer the papers, you have to be a registry member, and that was like another $40.

Maybe one of these days I will get another Fox Trotter, then I will have two and I can transfer them both, lol.

She's also had 3 crossbreed foals that I know of (the last people bred her twice to a QH stallion and then she also came to me pregnant).

Wow, its a wonder the girl even had time to be saddle broke!

I think it's kind of sad for a horse to get passed around so much. I don't know if it's true, maybe her owners really cared for her, but it gives you the impression that they just bred her and passed her on, know what I mean? Maybe I can find some mention of her foals somewhere.

Not that it matters too much, but I am just curious about her previous "lives." God willing, she is here to stay with me and will live out her life as an adored trail horse.

Thank you again Tonipony.

Exactly. It doesn't matter as I plan to have my boy forever. It's just so interesting to think about all that they have experienced. I'm dying of curiosity more than anything else! :)

Do you have his papers or did you just have his name and number? DNA will only be useful if his parents had been DNA'd.

On your mare Newby, I did not know any of her previous owners. I am located only 5 miles from the association headquarters and know a lot of MFT people. She sure has had a lot of foals and almost as many owners, poor baby.

This is a bit of a wild goose chase. My boy has zero paperwork. The only reason I have even attempted to find him is because gaited curlies are fairly rare. I have found a registered curly that fits his description perfectly and a previous owner told me that this particular horse was MFT registered and the parents were the same that are listed on the pedigree that you posted. I have looked at hundreds of photos and this is the only one that could be him. There is a good chance that he wasn't registered at all. However, he was most likely bred and he is very well trained, so it seems odd if he wasn't.

The DNA test that the curly site offers is only $25 and since he (if this is truly him) is registered on both then I was hoping that something would show up. If not, then that's ok. I love the my big furry guy even if his past remains a mystery forever.

That was me.

I found one of her foals, also here in Arizona, MLD's Shadow S.

The funny thing is, he was born in 2006. If the foals are listed in order of birth, then the registered foals takes us to 2009. I purchased her in October of 2009, but I assumed the last two foals were grades because she was out in a big herd with a QH stallion. I know the foal she popped out at my place was by the same QH stallion. Either the foals aren't in order or I'm just really confused at the moment, lol!

Anyway, thank you for the lead. It was really exciting to find one of her babies.

Ok, on the mare, I just listed them in the order they were in and didn't look at their birth year. Here they are again:

Diamonds Comet 1997
Big Zee 1999
Night Flame 2000
Miss Suzanna 2001
Stardusts J Bird 2003
Threats Shady Lady 2004
MLD's Shadow 2006

Awesome!!!

That makes more sense now. And I can fill in the rest:

2007 (presumably no foal)
2008 Chestnut QH cross colt
2009 black QH cross filly
2010 gray QH cross colt (mine)

Wow, she's been a busy girl! No wonder she's a little rusty on the trails.

She's retired from the baby business. She's done her part.
