I bought my gelding in September.. Hesls my first OWNED horse. It was a deal I couldnt refuse. My stables owner knew I was in the market and that I liked the stocky drafty build and my boyfriend liked paints. He called me one day to go look at a horse with him. We went out and it was love at first sight. He had such a gentle nature and a kind' soft eye( you know what I'm talking about) He walked right to me and I hopped on him bareback in a halter and took him around. He had only arived there the night before and he was surprisingly calm. I fell in love and for 700 I bought my 9 year old gelding. With no information but a coggins placing him about 2 hours north of me I was eager to find information about his past. We got him home, had his feet done(shoes were a size too small and crooked) had a new coggins pulled in my name, wormed and got fall shots, teeth floated and trimmed down the chunk. Now 3 months later I finally got the guts to call the owner listed on his previous coggins. With luck they had him from the time he was 5 untill 9, sold him for 1000 to a lady who had him for 3 months before we bought him. AND! The owners on his coggins bought him from their friend who bred and raised him. So I'm very hopeful to get SOME information. If he's able to be registered as a paint or pinto. I don't care either way I'd just like to know more about his history.
So now I wait for a call back! The husband was out riding when I called. Posted via Mobile Device
