This is a weird thing, but there seems to be quite a number of horsey people on tumblr, and hey, you never know.
I’m looking for this horse.
This is a horse that I used to lease and love very much. His name is Brac’n (Bracken); registered name Brac’n Rose. Sire is a stud called Big Brac. He’s 16.3hh, Thoroughbred, bay with no white markings, born in 1993. His croup is more pointy/prominent than is desirable and when he’s fit, he is one of those greyhound-y type TBs. He’s more than likely quite lame on one or both forelegs, due to joint degeneration in his pasterns. He was gelded late and has a lot of ‘studdy’ behaviours (he’s a squealer). He drinks out of pop cans if you leave them in his reach and he loves Five Alive.
He’s trained for eventing and jumpers, but due to lameness was retired to a rescue (as a leaser lacking the money to purchase and subsequently care for a lame TB, this was outside my control) which later shut down in questionable circumstances and relocated their horses in 2006 or 2007. This was the last time I saw him, despite repeated attempts to contact the owners of the rescue.
This was in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada.
I realize he doesn’t have any distinctive markings and there are a million bay TBs in the world, but on the off chance, I would love to find him and know that he’s alright, if he is still alive (don’t worry, if you have him and you love him I have no desire to take him from you!).
The top photo is his passport photo. Second, circa 2003. Third, post-retirement in 2006.
If you know this horse, please let me know!!
