I am so glad you have responded!
I have no clue who "the mineers" are, but they are not her breeders. We, Rick and Kate Triplett, bred your mare, raised her and then we sold her to Barbara Walterick of Shelton on APril 12, 1997 - Barb transferred her (according to AQHA) on May 8, 1997. Barb then sold her on to "a guy who will take her to work cattle" and I could never get his contact info, nothing she gave me was traceable. There have been no other ownership records per AQHA since then, soooo - whoever you got her from obviously knew her registered name, but they didn't give you her papers OR even her correct age, so I can say they were not entirely truthful with you.
Sweetie was foaled May 2 1993, her sire is Willy Jumpup, her dam was our grand old Trooper Seven daughter Miss Super Trooper. We showed Sweetie as a yearling and a two year old in sporthorse in-hand classes. Barb wanted her to ride and to breed for Aztecas. The Azteca registry then changed their rules, disallowing ANY TB blood in the QH part of their breeding program (but they allow Doc Bar, go figure), so Barb dumped Sweetie. Been looking for my baby girl ever since :) and I am ecstatic to know she's safe and healthy and in a good home!
Kaylee, since I now have enough posts to qualify, I am going to PM you and we can continue this in private (real) emails.
