Looking for this horse

I know this is a HUGE longshot, but...

I sold this horse this summer. It was the biggest mistake of 2012. Every single day that has passed I have regretted the decision and have thought about him. I NEED to know where he is, if he is safe, and would like to buy him back if possible. I miss this horse more than words can say. However, if he is not for sale, I would be happy to know that he is at least safe and happy. He is about 16hh and is a registered QH. He is head-shy at first. Please, if you know where he is, I would appreciate your help.

Here's what I know-
The guy I sold him to sent him to auction. He's a horse trader. (There's a LOT to this story that I just don't want to get into. It's too emotional for me. But none of that changes the facts. I should not have sold him, I did, and my heart is broken without him.)
He was sold in southern Louisiana, but at this point, could be anywhere.

Sorry I'm no help to you, but fingers crossed you find him.

Did you try contacting the auction to see if they have records of where he may have been sold to?

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

Have you checked to see if his registration was transferred?

How old? Any distinguishing markings? Have you posted to Netposse?

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

So far, his registration has not been transferred. He has an identifiying scar on his left cheek. It's just a small circle, but I'd recognize it in a heartbeat. He's about 12 years old. I have not posted to Netposse, because he's not stolen. I'm not sure if they would be able to help me since I'm just a pathetic lady looking for a horse she never should have sold LOL.

Yep, the first thing I would do is call the registry and check for any ownership transfers. It's a long shot as he went through auction, but still worth a shot.

I hope you find him! Try posting on Craigslist as well.

Thank you so much. I have posted to Craigslist and also to some "horses for sale" places on Facebook. I just want my boy back. I owned him for 2 months before I was all but forced into selling him. It was a nightmare of a situation, but that nightmare has been resolved, and I just want my boy back. From the minute I saw him (he came to my barn via a horse-trader), I knew he was meant to be mine. I just want him back.

Good luck - I hope you find him!

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!
