Last year I leased a Clydesdale from a friend of mine. He left my farm and went to a farm in FL where he was leased. Unknown to me, he was sold to the people in FL. Had I of known he would have been for sale, I would have bought him!!! Well, his new owners took him to an auction in GA and sold him at an auction.
This is a HUGE INSULT to this horse!!!!!!!!! He should have NEVER set hoof in an auction!!!!!!!! This Clydesdale SHOULD have been sent with his own leather breastcollar with his name on it and black draft bridle (both brand new). This Clydesdale should be VERY easy to identify... I haven't met a horse who could do any more tricks than this Clydesdale does.
I couldn't stop crying this morning when I found out that he was sold at an auction, but I am determined to find him again. I want to know for a FACT he is in a GOOD HOME, being taken care of, and I want to keep in touch with him. If he is ever up for sale again, I also want to buy him immediately and reunite him with his ORIGINAL mommy - who foaled him, raised him, and trained him. I LOVE this horse as much as my own horses and it completely breaks my heart to think he might be in a bad home.
Is ANYONE in GA / FL who knows of someone who just lucked up with a trick-trained Clydesdale that rides and drives??????
