my cobs chaps passport lists 2 previous owners first in 2001 when she was 8 and then sold to same area in 2003 I have owned her for 2 years bought off dealer from different part of country. I am tempted to try to contact these people to find out about her, I know she has had a couple of foals also has old leg injury. would you try to find out more about her or be worried about what you might find out?

Not that I have ever sold one but if I did, I'd be more than happy for new owners to contact me.
As for being worried what you might find out, after 2 years of ownership, is there anything they could tell you that could surprise you?

A friend of mine is hirse hunting atm, and she copied down all the previous owners of a horse she went to see.

She rang a couple of them, and one said the horse must have been doped when my friend tried it, cos it wasnt at all quiet!!!

I would contact them - if I have previous owner details I will always attempt contact - although sometimes people may choose not to maintain contact. Every horse that I have sold I had always made sure that the new owners stay in touch, as I love to hear how my babies are going on.

I recently tried to contact the breeders of a gelding I had taken on for a friend, and I never heard anything from them at all. If anyone contact me about horses I had owned before I would always contact them back.

Having two daughters going up the pony sizes, we have sold quite a few over the years. I would love any new owners to contact me and let me know how the ponies were doing.

I have done it and she was pleased to hear from us, I know I would love to be contacted by current owners of my pony, but all our horses are in their first homes since being sold so I 'm happy enough! We tend to see them once a year at PC areas etc.!
