Hey Tumblr, I’ve a favor to ask of you all. I’ve seen the Equestrian Community through a lot, in fights and make ups, building and breaking things apart to further understand it. Even though you have about as many varying opinions as spots on a dalmatian, you’ve come together when it’s needed and I’ve seen a lot of horses find their owners and homes when needed. I’m here to ask you to try and put forth that magic into helping this horse find his owner again.
This horse once belonged to my best friend, Huckleberry-teacake. He was her first horse, and she loves him more than words can express. She was forced to relinquish ownership of him back in 2012 because of funds. She’s in a position now where she’s back on her feet, and she desperately would like to find her horse again. She’s family to me and it would just mean the world if we could find him.
His name is Bart. He was sold at an auction in Shipshewana, IN on Friday, November 18th, 2012. She was told that he was sold to a trainer dealer by her then-barn owner, and that was the last she heard of his whereabouts. The pictures in the middle of the set are from when she first met him, at the same auction in Shipshewana. We’re not really sure where to look, auction or location-wise, and we’re hoping he’s still in the state or nearby. We’ve been trying to keep an eye on auctions, but the only one I really know of that you can monitor online is Camelot. And unfortunately, neither of us really know how to go about tracking down a horse that may have found its way back into the auction system.
Additional information on him includes:
Height: Between 15.2-16hh
Breed: Believed to be a Saddlebred x Appaloosa
Age: Thought to be about 6 (so almost or around 8 by now)
Unmistakeable characteristics: Right brown eye, blue left; one perfect pink spot in the middle of his sheath.
Other: It is believed that his sellers came from Deleware with him and the rest of their stock.
- Number of the auction: (260) 768-4129
If you have any questions in regards to gathering more information about him or might have any leads, please message either myself or L (linked above). I’ve tried to place as much information as we can collectively gather, but there’s always the chance that we’ve missed something that could be important. Please, any help would be appreciated. We want to find him, and if he needs a home or is for sale, she wants to bring him home. Please signal boost, reblog, and get the word out. Work your magic, please!
