Posted in missing horses forum as well, but I figured since he was a dressage horse I might try here as well.
I'm looking for any info on this horse:
The lady I bought him from had him for 9yrs, she bought him from another lady, who bought him from her farrier. The farrier also rode him I think. He came from So.Cal, knows up to 4th/PSG, around 19yrs old, supposedly by Zooloog out of Swedish mare, name Amigo. Although he might have had a different name, not sure without his papers.

So if anyone can point me in the direction of either that farrier or the owner before that?

You have Van Gogh. I purchased him as a 4 yr old from Seabreeze Farms in San Diego. I competed him through 4th level. I lost track of him years ago and thought he was deceased. He looks great. He is by Zooloog out of Janey who was by Tudor. Let me know how he is doing. It is ironic that he would show up. I lost Justin several weeks ago to colic. Both horses were purchased at the same time and were related.

Does anyone have any info on Zooloog and/or Tudor?
Google comes up with a bunch of Tudors but they're all TBs...

Zoolog and Tudor owned, or at least ridden, by Tom Valter. Here's a link to Tom's web page - http://tomvalter.com/ . And a link to a page with photos of both horses - http://tomvalter.com/vtv_riding_school.html

Well, that was easy!

It's a small world, isn't it?

Very cute horse, there, OP.
