New_Image. Your mares are just gorgeous! Where in Mi are you? I'm below Grand Rapids about 45 minutes, but we have a cabin up near Cadillac. I love your Black Sabino mare. Very pretty. Who are they bred to? Were you trying for some color? Colored TB's are so breath-taking!


Thanks! The mares are half sisters, daughters of Puchilingui. They are bred to my palomino Guaranteed Gold son.


We are hoping for color but mostly just hoping for happy healthy babies. The black bay sabino mares first colt was a smokey black (Guaranteed Gold son) and I would LOVE a smokey black filly. There are pictures of the colt in the conformation critique second right now, and of the mares half brother. We are located just outside of Cadillac, actually :)

Nice looking stallion! Do you stand him to outside mares? It's cool that you are fairly close, but I always wonder, whenever we are up there I NEVER see any hayfields! Where in the world do you get your hay? It is grass hay or does alfalfa grow decently up there? And is it pretty expensive up there? We paid $3.25/bale here for about a 60LB bale.

How exciting. I hope you get the smokey black filly your waiting for.

I'm going to guess, out of the bay mare, you'll get a buckskin colt. And out of the sabino mare........hmmmm........I'll go with smokey black sabino filly. That should send you some luck.

What do you mean you never see hay fields, they are everywhere! Well, actually Cadillac is crappy and mostly sand so no you wouldn't see much for good fields. The hay is out where we are, Missaukee county. I have a little 1st cut timothy hay and mostly second cut half alfalfa hay. We get squares for $2.75 and 600 pound rounds for $25. This is well below the going rate, it seems to average more $3.50 for squares and $40 for rounds.

Yes, I do have Beyond Blonde at stud to outside mares.

Thanks for the luck! Thus far the stallion has produced a palomino filly, a chestnut rabicano filly and a chestnut filly. I told him to keep on going with the fillies. I have these two girls confirmed in foal to him and possibly my Percheron mare for late fall (pictured in avatar with him)

Where we stay, there's such sandy soil. It's horrible. Our cabin is in Irons and it's completely sand city there!

Last year we paid $55 for round bales. Those hay prices are really great that you pay.

I wasn't planning on breeding for 2012, But According to the vet my Appaloosa Mare is 7 months along. To a ether of 2 studs, but the main suspect is a dun Quarter Horse Stud who is registered and has show points on him.

Latest pic we have of her(taken in Sep. 2011):

I pay $8.00 to $15 for small square here that weigh about 80LBs, I would love to only pay that much for hay. Consider yourself lucky.

We only pay $3-$5 for square bales in the Winter. Around 80lbs.

We are buying 200 bales for only $2/bale.

We were going WOW at $5 bales, I guess we should count our blessings and be happy that is all we have to pay!
