Looking for former owner!!

Hi everyone, I recently purchased my Irish cob mare. She has Gypsy cob society papers which are handed out on the 26th of may this year. I live in the Netherlands so this means she has made the cross over just recently.
I am looking for her former owner or anyone who might have known her. She is quite the character and I feel that she has been trough alot judging by the way she acts. She is quite nervous around people and doesn't trust people easily...

The adres on the Gypsy cob papers says she comes from Queensmead farm, Bristol road in North Somerset. I have found out that this property has recently been for sale....

Does anyone know this horse or can maybe help me find the owner???

Try writing to them at that address, they may be having any post forwarded onto them elsewhere if they have sold up and moved ...

Otherwise you could try posting on a UK based horse MB and see if anyone knows who they are, I can PM you the URLs of a couple of sites?

On the papers - to be sold at auction she had to have papers - there should be a town - North Somerset is the county - most roads lead to Bristol. The address you have quoted doesn't give enough detail.

There should be a town and a postal code.
You need a post code number to get more info.

Has the horse been chipped?

On the passport is there a vet's name?

My guess is that her owners went broke and there are a lot of people going broke these days. Seems as though the horse has done well to find you.

Look after her
You'll find out with time and patience all you need to know about her. The horse will tell you.
Let her start with a clean sheet.

Get her vetted, have her teeth checked. Worm her.
Give her a flu jab. Buy her a water proof outdoor coat

Teach her to speak Dutch and to walk on the wrong side of the road.

And watch out for when the Gypsies are about - they will love her.

Best of luck with your new horse and welcome to the Forum.

Yes be careful with those gypsies they would kill for a horse like that.

You do need to find a postcode and I think most horses are microchipped these days. There are lots of english forums where you might have better luck or try googling another riding centre in the same area, but postcodes are necessary for england as the counties are so very large

Thanks for the replies everyone!
I do have a postalcode. It says Queensmead farm, Bristl road, Sidcot, North Somerset BS25 1PW

And yes she is chipped, already was before I got her, otherwise she can't even get into the Netherlands.

The teaching her dutch part I am working on but she is quite stubborn

Do you think the Gypsy's would like to have Flanagan too?

Im going to have to bite the bullet, as I have gypsy in me..

But you do have gorgeous horses,
