I've been trialling a horse for the past couple weeks, and just had the vet check today. Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with ringbone. His owner and I are both very disappointed. Coincidentally, she also received the papers from his prior owner today, and showed them to me. The written description and the drawn-in markings don't seem to match the markings on the actual horse in question. Can anyone track down any photos of the registered horse?
Registry #: 3812355
Registered name: Woody B An Allstar (may have fewer spaces in it than that, but I do remember the spelling and the letter B from reading the papers earlier today)
Foaled April 27, 1999, Breeder William C Miller
The papers described a blaze, snip, white lip and chin, and a hind stocking, with no other white markings. The horse I've seen and ridden and taken photos of has a thin strip on his face, no snip on his nose, and I can't recall white or lack thereof on his chin or lip. He does have a short sock on his right hind, but he also has a white pastern with ermine spots on his right front, which isn't mentioned on the papers.
How common are variances like that between the description/drawings, and the actual horse, or do you think the seller the current owner bought him from was up to no good?
