    What a cool horse this would be to have.... Doesn't look that bad from the terrible photo angle.

    "White Omen" is not the name of a registered TB.

    Neither is "Bright White Omen" or "Brite White Omen."

    Would be curious to see if this horse actually has papers and what his name is.

    The fact he is $1500 leads me to believe he probably was not registered. But who knows, at least they gelded him. He could use some exercise and groceries though.

    Please post what you find out. He looks like he could use some groceries and some TLC. Sweet face.

    Can you look on APHA and see if that is his registered name? It is cheaper to register a horse with APHA then it is with the JC. Possible the owners went this way to save money.

    His dam would also have to have been bred live cover to get JC papers.

    The TB sport horse stallion, Bright White, was moved out west from Pennsylvania a few years ago. Bright White is a son of Roanoke and the mare Artic Squaw.

    Depending on his age, the "must be at least one APHA-registered parent" rule might have been in effect, precluding a JC-registered APHA registration. Having said that, a number of people call any purebred a "thoroughbred" & perhaps that is what the craigslist poster meant.

    ^^This. I don't have enough fingers to count with to say how many times over the years when I've told people the horse I was riding/handling/etc, was a thoroughbred, and then they promptly ask "What kind?"

    I know there have been a couple all white TBs to hit the ground in the last decade or so. Not sure if the Bright White one Viney referenced is related, but I remember hearing a couple years ago about a big name movie horse trainer guy bought one (colt or gelding, can't remember which it was) to add to his string. Talked about how smart the horse was, etc, and his blindingly brilliant coat was just the icing on the cake, so to speak.

    IIRC, Bright White was the sire of Camohn's sadly deceased TB stallion Wild By Design. She said she'd breed to him again in a heartbeat if he had been available still in Pennsylvania.

    I just remembered that the sire, if Bright White was his sire, was also registered with APHA. So this horse could be pure TB and registered APHA.

    Default Bright White ....

    Well just to add to the discussion. I have a gelding by Bright White out of my Trakehner mare Sommer Schwalbe. Great mover, big @17h (mare was 16.2h), high ride-ability with jump. Maybe it will inspire someone to give this guy a chance, if he is by Bright White.

    I apologize for not getting back to this thread sooner. I spoke with the owner of this horse. He is not registered, and when I pressed for breeding info, she was not even sure. She worked at a TB farm and took him on when the farm closed in order to rehome him. She thinks he's at least part TB, maybe one that was never registered. She seemed very nice and like she was trying to do right by him. He leads, is good for the farrier, and trailers, but has no other training.

    I asked her if she could get some video of him and send it to me, or even get some better pictures, but never heard from her again.

    Sounded like a reasonably responsible owner trying to do right by the horse and move him on to a situation where he'd get training. I got the feeling that price was VERY negotiable to a decent home. Here is her Bayequest ad in case someone wants to check him out further. It's quite possible this is a diamond in the rough. I googled the stallion Bright White and the color is very similar...and Bright White stands in Nevada, so who knows...
