I don't know if this is the right sub-forum to post this, but the readers here seem to know a lot about paints, so figured this might be the right crowd. A friend of mine recently had a great success in learning more about a sweet gelding she rescued from an auction, I decided to do a bit of searching on my own handsome boy who I rescued.
I pulled a skinny, young tri-colored Paint gelding from a Feedlot in Little Falls, MN in October of 2005. I named him Thor – he was so long and skinny that he reminded me of my Norwegian relativesJ. We estimate he was a long 3 that year, so is now coming 10. He was almost 16 HH at that point, and has now grown to about 16.2. He is mostly white, but has a brown patch over his butt, black tail, a couple brown spots on his back, and a brown head, neck and shoulders, black mane, and a large white streak down the left side of his neck. When I first got him he was underweight, but has filled out, and is definitely mixed with something drafty.
I have included some pictures of when he was first rescued, and now. If anyone has any information I would love to learn more about his history.
Again, what I know
· Purchased from a Feedlot in Little Falls in Oct. 2005
· He was likely foaled in 2003
· Tri-colored Paint
· Likely has some draft or possibly Friesian in him
However he came into be at the feedlot that day – I am extremely grateful! He has been an AMAZING horse, so talented, gorgeous, and has been my trusty companion for many years. I look forward to so many more wonderful years!
