    Any APHA Members Wanting To Play Detective?

    I am trying to track down some info on the sire of a Paint mare that I just bought.
    I believe his APHA registered name is Eternal Twist Flame,reg.#402152,and DOB was April 7,1997. He was at one time standing at stud at the Caeco Ranch,here in Alberta. I don't know if he's even still alive or not..
    Also,if you can find out anything about Twist's sire:all I know is his name,Eternal Chief.
    Anything anyone can find out would be great,and thanks in advance!

    No,I ended up getting the overo Paint mare.She's 20 times the horse the other one was,both in conformation,temperament,and training.I can't remember if I told the story of when I went and saw that other mare,but yikes,she was a disaster! Once I get a chance,I'll take some pics of her and introduce her to everyone. :)

    If it wasn't the fact that the markings were the same,you would have thought the pics of the mare I had posted and the mare herself were two different horses;the pics must have been old ones. She was horribly sway backed with shark fin withers,and not sure what it was exactly but her whole hind end looked very off,like one hip was way higher than the other even when standing square;she had an old injury just above her hoof that I knew about,the owner had said there was some scar tissue,but her hoof itself was misshapen and the joint was actually crooked,tendons affected,maybe? She wasn't thin or anything like that,looked to be in good shape,but she looked like a 20 yr old horse instead of 12.
    And then.. I knew she hadn't been ridden that much in a few years,but she had been supposedly well started, was supposed to have had all this groundwork and lungework done,be dead quiet,never bucked,ect. Well,she was very jittery,acted like she had never been lunged in her life,nearly ran off with the guy,he finally gets her settled down,climbs on,she blows up,bucks him off and nearly runs threw the fence.He climbs back on and she blows up again,he stays on this time and gets her circling and she finally stops.He rode her around for a few minutes at a w/t,but she acted out of control half the time and tried more than once to buck again. Then the owner admits that,actually,yes,she has bucked before.
    So,for a horse that was advertised as well built,never offered a buck or bolt,is dead quiet,perfectly sound,I was not impressed! Found out later that the owner had not been honest about a few other things as well,so I'm glad I stayed away from that one.. It would have been cool to have my mare's half sister,but not worth it.

    WOW, that is a disaster. I wonder how old those pictures were because she didnt look that bad in them! Glad you got a better look at her and found a better pick. Do you have pictures of the one you ended up with?

    Here's some pics of the one I did get:
