Help me find my gelding sold about 15yrs ago to somewhere in CA
In 1997 Peter Pletcher sold my gelding to a "tall woman and her daughter" who were clients of Robert McNeel, they lived in California, they had been looking for a horse for 3 years before they found mine. Here is my gelding's info:
Dam: Lili (German Oldenburg)
Sire: Joe's Lin (TB)
Color: Dark Bay/Black, white stripe & snip on nose, white sock on right front and right hind leg
Size: was told he ended up being around 18 hands, he was 16.2 when he was sold as a 3-4 year old.
My father and I bred sport horses in Spring TX, my gelding's name was Wotan - he was my first horse. I have been looking for him for 2 years, but on 6/19 I had to put his Dam down (heartwrenching!) and now I am more determined than ever to find him. If you recognize him I would appreciate ANY information (no matter how old) you could give me!
I don't know how to attach a picture of him here, but the following link is him on my profile:
Have you done a Horse Recording Search by Sire on the USEF.org website? There are horses registered that have Joe's Lin as the sire and Lili as the dam. I am not looking at the results right now, but I think two of them were bay.
The one foaled in 94 is his full brother, I raised him too. His name is Double Jeopardy, he still lives nearby. I found one that seems promising "Peaceful News" and another "Sweetness" that looks close. When he left he went to CA, but I know he could be anywhere now! Thanks so much for the help y'all - I had no idea where to start, I'm going to track down these leads now
