Does anyone know how I might find a list and contacts for any previous owners?
I have never posted for information like this or gone calling people before, but there is just something pulling my heart strings on this older girl who has until tomorrow (04/23/10) before she ships. From older pictures I have found she looks like a nice solid mare with good bloodlines (at least from a sport horses perspective).
As per pedigree query the owner was Crowley Thoroughbreds LLC, although that could be old. I can't find a number for them. Another listed Michael Crowley but that number was disconnected. A google search of the mare's a name has turned up Skytop farm in NY as a possible past owner, however judging by the picture it was sometime ago as she was darker grey then. I did call Skytop and spoke with a very nice person who has worked there 5 years and does not recall the mare, he will leave a message for the owners though.
Lovely! And 19 is probably not too old for some riding, provided there's no injury. If she's like my guy, though, she'd probably just prefer the cookies. (He's only eight but is trying to convince me he should be on a beach drinking umbrella drinks and eating himself into a stupor, not this "canter" thing.)
