Finding information on auction horses?

So I tried this once and I'm basically calling a HUGE longshot here. But moose came from new holland then made his way to Camelot and I'm trying my hardest to find any info on him or even his previous owners (having a wee bit of hope!!!) I'm sure if I call new holland they won't be able to tell me anything. The only way I know he went to new holland is because from my understanding he had a coggins pulled there...I don't exactly remember but new Hollands adress and info is stamped on his coggins as well as camelots and a vets info is as well.

I know this is next to impossible. Being he is t registered at all. But anything I could possibly do? It's not like he's just a gray and a hard horse to explain. He's got very distinct markings (like a heart in his rump)

This is definitely a long shot but thought I could least try....

What is New Holland/Camelot?

An auction yard?

I DON'T LEAD 'EM AND FEED 'EM, I RIDE 'EM AND SLIDE 'EM.

new holland is a horse auction that usually direct sales horses to slaughter.

camelot is an auction house that buys from new holland and will try to find homes for the ones they bought. usually if not sold to private pwner it will be sold to a rescue.

just two auction houses. i bought my new guy straight from camelot

Perhaps you could try (extremely politely, they are more likely to try to help if you are), calling New Holland again. Have your brand inspection, with the date of the brand and ask who brought in horses that day. That may narrow down your field. Make sure you are clear that you only want to discover the background of your cherished horse, nothing that would hurt their business or get a client in any kind of trouble. They may not want to give out information if they feel it is in their best interest to not. Beg and plead as if they were withholding precious information (which is true), be respectful and polite even if they aren't. Good luck ;)

I'm not sure why anyone would think the auction house would have any history on the animal. The horse merely went through there for a sale.

A buyer has no right to know who owned the horse previously, and there are usually reasons why someone who takes a horse to auction doesn't want their information given out to some stranger.

Besides, no matter how much you beg, plead, promise good things, or cry like a baby, the auction houses simply do not give out that kind of information.

You bought a horse at auction, and knew going in that you were buying an unknown quantity. Instead of worrying about the horse's past, you should be more concerned for its future life with you.

My mom bought two horses from auction many years ago. She wanted to find out if she could get information on them (they were distinctly purebred arabs) but the only reason they couldn't give her the seller's info is because they didn't want to be known. Don't blame them, the fillies were so starved that the meat man didn't want them. Years later, one of my sisters tried again to find out where they came from, and the auction house wanted to help, but it was one year after they had tossed the records of the year the mares were purchased (they only held onto records for about 5 years and then tossed them). If my sister had tried one year sooner, they would have given her the information she wanted. Auction houses keep some sort of records of who brings horses in, the owner needs to be paid after all. It may just be a name but that is all you need to put a small piece of the puzzle together.
