We purchased this horse in January. He came with AQHA papers that were never transferred from the breeder. The breeder had signed them, and left the transfer open. We did contact the Dayton, OH breeder, and know that 'Fudge' was sold as a yearling in 2002. I know of two other owners (brokers) in PA in 2008. The other six years are a mystery.
I contacted AQHA, and they list the owner as the breeder. The broker was 'less than honest' with us, and the papers don't exactly match the horse. The broker listed him as black, his papers say brown, and when he shed out this spring he is a bay. He is a dark bay, but definitely a bay. We have ordered a DNA test to see if the papers match the horse. Fudge has been very sick with EPM. He has a blog on his rehabilitaion:

If you have owned IMA FUDGEAHOLIC TOO, would you please contact me? Any other ideas on finding the previous owners?
