^^ Oh, wow, did I just say 'her' ?! I always say 'his'! Considering all our's are boys :)

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.

Cool

I love American Creams they are just stunning horses. But there aren't only 65 left I believe the population is something about 150-200 horses.According to my book there were 222 registered in 2000 and in 2004 there were 350 registered. So on their official website it says they are a CRITICAL breed.

Does the flaxen color make him not a true cream? I've heard they are pretty picky in that Association but probably because they are so rare?
Yes, he's a true Cream. His sire and dam are full Cream, and the desired champagne color. It's just that they aren't homozygous for it, so that's how my guy came out different. To be registered, males have to have pink skin and champagne color. Females can have dark skin as long as they're champagne. The registry is really picky about it.

Here's Norman:





A couple years ago when we had to cut his mane... He stuck his head through a fence and tore part of it out. The little goober.


Yep. His breeder wasn't happy with him at all, and she gave him away on the condition that the people gelded him right away. They didn't want to pass on the chestnut gene. So here he is with me. =D

Wow, absolutely gorgeous. Thanks so much for sharing! And that sucks about the registry. Sounds snobby >.<
