If you're still on the hunt to solve the mystery, do you think there'd be any value in following up with the vet who signed off on his papers? Vets tend to be excellent with documentation...at least the ones I know. There could be additional information from this vet to be had and it may be worth a phone call. Just a thought...super interesting story! Gorgeous horse.
