Its actually a story a lot of ppl diss me on...
When I was 17 I dropped out of high school due to complications
My father hated it and decided as a lesson to sell him.
Im actually a professional action photographer now.
At 25 I'm doing pretty good for myself. Sadly summers are the best for my business

Why didn't the 2010 owners sell him back to you?
What happened was he was sold... those owners lied to me. Sent me on a wild goose chase.
It wasnt till 2010 I found out anything.
By that time the lady sold him to a gal in cali 3 to 4 years before.
Trail is lost after that.

It's not possible for him to be Straight Egyptian if his mother has Bask* in her pedigree. Sounds like he's an Egyptian/Polish cross.

Unfortunately for you, as a minor at the time your father had every right to sell the horse. Not saying it was right or wrong, just stating the legality.

What is it you're wanting? To purchase the horse back, or just want to know that he's landed softly?

What if he's not for sale and never will be? Are you prepared to walk away and not hound his current owners about him? This has to be part of your plan if you ever actually find him.

It's not the current owner's fault he was sold out of your grasp, and you'll have to be willing to completely let go if they don't want to have anything to do with you.

I'm not thinking negatively. All I'm thinking is positive. I don't need negative questions.
Thank you though.

Sadly this is something you need to think about even if its negative its still a possibility that you need to consider. I'm not trying to be rude or anything I just don't want to see you get your hopes up and become heart broken. I would be sad for you and hope for the best outcome. I was taught to expect the worst but hope for the best. This thinking keeps from getting your hopes to high and being devastated by the possible bad outcomes of life. I hope you find him and things work out in your favor, I truly do but prepare for the worst so your not as heart broken in the end. Good luck hun and I'll keep the word out for him. On FB you mentioned Bend. Is that Bend, Oregon?

They're not negative questions, they're realistic ones. You can hope for a positive outcome, but you have to be prepared that things may not go your way.

You may never find the horse. That's also something you have to be prepared to accept. Not today and maybe not tomorrow, but what about 20 years from now? There has to be a point where you have to say 'enough'.

We don't always get what we want merely because we want it. That's an adult truthism you need to learn. At 25 y/o you're no longer a child, and need to accept that things don't always work out.

Absolutely stay positive, but don't lie to yourself. That way lies madness.
