Opinion on appropriateness of contacting previous owner.

When I was sold my critter, I was given his coggins papers, and copies of his registration from the breeder. I didn't buy him from the breeder, though. This guy being registered is just a bonus to me., would have bought him anyway. The owner listed on the coggins is different than who I bought him from as well. If I can't get proper responses from who I bought him from, would it be rude to call the owner listed on the coggins papers to help with the process of trying to get him transferred? I would like to get this done sooner than later, as I don't want to get farther down the road, and regret not doing it sooner.
How would you guys feel if someone you didn't know called you up because they have old coggins papers with you name address and phone number on them, and wanted help with transferring papers?

Hey, it can't hurt to give them a call and see what they say! If they're funny with you, just tell them they were listed on the coggins papers :)
Good luck! :)

To whom is he registered? They'd be the person to contact, not the person on the Coggins.

If the horse was registered by his breeder and never transferred to any of his previous owners, then they're the first place to start. If the breeder thought enough of the foal to get it registered, then I'd think they'd be happy to hear from you.

Well I do know his registration was transferred from the breeder at least once, because his name was changed. But starting from the beginning may be easier because of the paper trail :) however, because I'm not the AQHA, people may not want to share others info too readily. We shall see, I suppose.

We love knowing where the horses we raise or sell wind up. Well, most of them. There is one lady that I stumbled upon in my FB friend list who has a show horse we sold about 15 years ago. It is one of the best feelings to know your guys are somewhere safe.

Give them a call. The absolute worst they can say is "I don't want to hear from you again" and words are wind. I was always taught "if you don't ask, you don't get, and the answer will always be no".

If you need a signature in order to reg. The horse in your name, that last registered owner is the one who has to sign the transfer paper. That can be downloaded off the internet and printed. I went thro this. The horse had gone thro two owners without them transfering him into their names. Because the second owner had inked her name into the transfer area I had to pay twice, into her name then in to mine. This was before the new Transfer Certificate. As far as the registry was concerned the gal I bo't him from didn't exist.

Yeah that may happen here. I sent the people I bought him from that form with a nice letter, and a self addressed stamped envelope. But if that won't happen, I'll try to come at it from a different way. I just wanted to know what I might be in for contacting strangers about a horse :) thank you guys. I appreciate the replies!

Well, I have the last known registered owners name (im not sure im supposed to have gotten that so easily...), and reason to believe he may have ended up at the loretta lynn ranch for a very brief period of time. They are supposed to be calling me back (we shall see) Perhaps im getting somewhere, and I hope its not right smack into a brick wall :) I'm not good at things like this. I feel as if im being so invasive.
