As you might know my moms mare Satins paperwork burned when her house did. She cannot find her old owners name and number, so could I ask a favor of someone who can look her up and possibly find out for me?

Mom thinks she remembers her name as Fun N Run Patches, or something close to that anyway. I can pay if you need it, but we really want to get her registration fixed...

Thanks!

I scrolled through 12 pages of names beginning with FUN on the ApHC data site (starting with a horse named "Fun" and ending with a horse named "Funzipped Dream" and I can't find anything close to "Fun N Run Patches". The only horse out of the approx. 140 I scrolled through with any version of "Patch" in their name was "Funtastic Patche" which would be an approx. 30 year old horse.

Sorry I couldn't help more-- any other possibilities for names, or were the papers possibly from another association besides ApHC?

Ahhh-- found her. Name is "Patches Fun N Run".

Current owner listed as James E. or Robynne Halbrook, Bonne Terre, MO. The database does not list addresses, but if you call the ApHC (208-882-5578-- open M-F 8-5 Pacific time) they will give you the current address of a member or past member over the phone. They will not give out phone numbers.

Here is the mare's pedigree (I added details per the ApHC database).

Patches Fun N Run Appaloosa

You owe me a dollar.

Well, I don't know anything about the immediate ancestry. Her sire, dam, and grandparents are not point earners with ApHC. There may be some racing accomplishments on the bottom side, but I can't search it.

A few generations back on her sire's side she has a treasure trove of Pacific Northwest Appaloosa breeding that was the best for its day. Names like Simcoe's Sarceeama, Quinta Chief, Storm Cloud F, Simcoe's Chinook, Red Eagle, Chief Joseph Rex-- you can google those names and find photos and info on most if not all of them. Some are also in the Appaloosa Hall of Fame. But its all pretty far back there in her pedigree.

Onher dam's side, Mr. Spotted Bull (which is where the grey comes from)and Scooter Bug G are in the Appaloosa Racing Hall of Fame, Joker's Dun Spot was a well known son of Hall of Famer Joker B-- but again, getting pretty far back in her pedigree.

Looking at her pedigree, I would expect an athetic horse with decent bone and feet and good legs, perhaps lighter muscled, more "elegant" than massive-- but with her mix of bloodlines its a tough guess, LOL-- please share photos when you can!

I am getting a cam today, but don't know when I will have pics... She is very tall @ least 16hh, have not measured though. LONG legs, lovely round neat feet, not too small. Nicely sprung ribcage IMO, nicely muscled rump. Her head is not as refined as I would like, but not ugly by far,2 blue eyes, though one seems really odd to me, it is almost black, very inky in color. I thought she might be blind in it, but she blinks when you move your hand around it and it reacts to light well, so IDK... . A little long in the back IMO, nothing serious though...

I will look up her ancestors and see if she looks like anyone (FUN!)

She looks a lot like Mr Spotted Bull IMO

Yup, they look most alike definitely.

Just going through all of this for mom, I'm learning more about appys and thinking about really getting into the breed someday.

how long have you been into apps Easttowest?

I owned an Appaloosa and rode Appaloosas waaay back when, when I was in high school, but as an adult I really got into the breed around 15 years ago.

Besides owning Appaloosas, occasioanlly showing, and raising a few foals every couple of years, I have a big 'ol collection of Appaloosa memorabilia, magazines and literature, and I am currently serving a second term as a Director for the Appaloosa Horse Club (Territory VI zone A-- MI and OH.)

I only got a few very crappy shots of her, not in the least flattering... But here she is. I will definitely get better ones when I can. She looks terribly toe out in the pics, but I assure you that she isn't. she banged her head in the trailer the other day and her eye is a little swollen still, ditzy girl...
