If you have any idea about breeding, its a starting point. I was able to do a ton of research on the horses my late Father-in-law bred, but I picked hubby's brain until he was sick of me... I started off with just a barn name, but he gave me some info that ultimately let me track several of them down. That is how we came to be able to buy the paint mare we had a while back. We have since given her to my niece- so she is back on the family farm where she was born.
