So, I'm going to get some pictures printed at the pharmacy and go from there. I need all the luck I can get right now!

This is cool. I think the "if she's his" thing is to distance himself if he knew where she ended up.

Take really good pics of the brands and her markings... this mare is his.

Well I told him that I bought her from some people that got her in Dallas, and they said they couldn't give me/didn't have her papers, so I have nothing and he goes "Hmm.. I wonder why" I didn't want to get on the wrong foot if he sent her there. That's not what I'm interested in finding out lol. I just wish it was summer so I could get conformation type pictures to send. But she's too fluffy for one, and two hours away. So we'll have to make do with what I have.

Cross your fingers, toes, legs, and arms. I'll let you guys know which pictures I send too!

He's only got one stallion that is old enough to have sired a 2007 baby .. (well, technically 2) .. and if the red roan is her daddy .. I'm surprised she ended up like she did.

Well. It is possible too that he sold the stallion that WAS her dad. He's even selling her mom right now. And he's got 2001 babies, and 2003 babies with "Holder" lines, and she was a 2007, so it's possible in the past 6 years that he's sold him. Or he used an off-ranch stallion.. Like I said, won't know anything until he gets the pictures, but the one he thinks is the mother, is Bonnie Blue Holder (if you look on the site, you can see her) and she's got a sorrel foal with her, so she IS capable of making them. I think he's the only one that could tell which stallion she came from. Because surely he has a stallion that does lol. I'm imagining right now that the sorrel foal shown with her IS my baby.

I just don't think that this rancher hauled that mare over 300 miles to a sale in Dallas. He might have sold her and she ended up there later but the distance and expense of hauling that far just doesnt seem like a good call. Especially with prices the way they are now and were then.
The drought out there has lingered for years so he might have hauled a few horses to cut down his herd and increase his sales.
If she was in a kill pen she has probably changed owners a couple of times. Shalom

Crossing fingers and toes for you.
I identified my rescue through her brand, the Cali brand book, found the owner of the brand who remembered my mare, told me if I needed any help with DNA samples for getting her papers he could do that, he had copies of her papers. Come to find out I got me a linebred Skipper W mare.
It's a great feeling when you finally can put all pieces together!

Yes! Because I've had so many people tell me I'll never figure it out.
By the way. For curiosity's sake.
That brand, if it's his...he calls it a bull head.
I knew it was an abstract concept...but that one, I couldn't even pull out of my left cheek if my life would've depended on it lol.
