Looking for an old friend.

I didn't really know where the appropriate place would be to post...And I know this is a very long shot.

When I was a teenager my parents sold my AraAppaloosa out from under me. I was devistated. He was three or four at the time. That was about nine years ago. It's really hard when an animal you loved is sold and you have no way of know where he ended up. He had the best personality of any horse I've ever known. I assume he went somewhere near Ashtabula, OH. There are no online registries I can look up to find him that way (although I doubt they kept up with that) but he was registered. His name was Coke's Mr. Bullseye (we called him Cokes), he was red roan (registered liver chestnut but changed color all the time) with a big blaze that went down over his nose, three or four socks, and a blanket that started to blend into the roaning.

I know I'll probably never find him, but it can't hurt to try. If anyone on here is from the area or thinks they might know him or of him, please let me know. Thank you so much for reading this and possibly helping me find a horse that was extremely special to me.

I did a bit of digging, and I read that an AraAppaloosa must have a registered Arabian and Appaloosa parent. I checked allbreedpedigree.com, and could not find your horse on there. Are you certain that is the correct registered name? I believe most registries don't allow anything but letters--I don't know if I've ever seen a name with apostrophes and periods in it like that.

Since there isn't an online AraAppaloosa registery, I learned that the horse would be registered either as an arabian or an appaloosa (usually a half-arab). I checked the Appaloosa horse registry, and he wasn't there. Was he registered as a half-arab? I'm afraid you'd need to subscribe to see their full list of horses. You wouldn't happen to remember his sire and dam or breeder?

I really hope you can find your old friend!

I don't remember the parents, but my mother is going to see if maybe we kept his papers. His sire definitely had something to do with the Coke's part. It was an odd registry but definitely AraAppaloosa (it even had a very pretty drawing of one on it), maybe it wasn't legitimate but it looked good. I thought the spelling of his name was weird too so maybe the breeder just had their own thing going? I was so young at the time I didn't think to look too close.Thank you for looking it it for me.

Here is the Appaloosa Horse Registry:

Horse Name Search

It looks like their are two Cokes Mr's--Cokes Mr Ribbon and Cokes Mr Breeze. Either of those sound familiar? There also is a Cokes Ms America. If you type in "Cokes" on the Appaloosa site, there is a whole list of names.

Something else I thought of last night is that I have seen ads on Craigslist of this same sort--people looking for animals they once owned. Many people watch Craigslist, it is free to make a posting, and you could make an ad for the surrounding areas of Ohio as well. Might be worth a shot!

Thank's a lot! I looked and there is a horse named Coke's Mr. Cool (with the apostrophy and period) and that sounded really familiar. I honestly think that might be his sire, but of course I couldn't look furthur without being a member. Thanks for the suggestion, I will try craiglist.

Here is Cokes Mr Cool's pedigree:

Cokes Mr Cool Appaloosa

He only has two offspring listed, but not every horse is listed on this site.

Do your parents remember the names of the people who purchased Cokes? You might be able to find them on Facebook or Twitter or something.
