AWR Inspection and my sweet story of rescue.......
In November of 2007 I rescued a yearling colt that was of amazing breeding but his owner had gone bankrupt, stopped paying bills, stopped feeding the horses and had no vet care for them. My sweet boy was almost dead when I got him....the vet told me he may not make it and was I SURE I wanted him even though he was "free." I just could not say no to this poor colt's pleading brown eyes that looked as though they had almost given up on life.
I brought my poor baby back from the dead with massive doses of daily TLC and vet care.
It has been less than a year and I took him to his AWR Inspection yesterday and he was site Champion, scoring an 8.0 First Premium Premier.
This horse is AMAZING and he truly truly seems to know I saved him. It brings tears to my eyes to think of what he was and what he has now become. Yes, this is a bit of a brag post but I just wanted to share my sweet boy with you all because I am so proud of him and what an angel he is.
Here is his picture in November of 2007 and then in October of 2008
Wow! You've been doing something right! What's his breeding?
He is actually 100% Thoroughbred but I could not JC Register him because his owner that went bankrupt fell off the face of the earth so I could not obtain the original Certificate of Breeding for him. I knew who his parents were (His Grandsire on his Sire's side is Seattle Slew and his Grandsire on his Dam's side is Walter Willy by Sadler's Wells)
Soooooooo..........with a LOT of phone calls, emails, and letters in the mail I was able to have his parent's DNA info released to AWR and I took my boy's hair sample. UC Davis confirmed it WAS his parents so he is DNA proven registered with AWR.
I am NOT advertising him as a "warmblood" whatsoever.....I always tell people that he is 100% Thoroughbred, I am proud of it. I just wanted him DNA Registered with a good Registry that has a "Sporthorse" focus.
