looking for the previous owner of a horse brought to the Strain Family Farm in Granby
Hi - I purchased a beautiful mare from someone who had bought her from the Va Hunter Sports Auction and sold by Bill Strain. I am trying to find the owner who sent her there. I called the Strains and they said they do not keep any paperwork on their horses. She was sold as a warmblood cross. She is bay, 16-1 with a triangular shaped white mark on her left front coronet band. When she was sold at auction she was very light - she is now a beautiful mahogany bay - She has amazing gaits - big floaty trot. I think she is a trakehner - she does have the personality of one - very smart, needs a very experienced rider, looks exactly like a Trakehner. Someone did some very solid groundwork and w-t-c work to train her - but I am thinking someone may have gotten frustrated with her. She definitely has alot of tricks up her sleeve. I am thinking it is someone in CT, NY or Massachusetts. She was sold in 2009 at the auction - is supposed to have been foaled in 2001.
