Dilute thoroughbred breeders - Please help me!

My name is Pauline and I breed thoroughbreds for racing. A friend just sent me this photo of a yearling cremello thoroughbred colt. My husband and I were awestruck by him. We would like to buy him or would be interested in breeding one of our mares to him if he is not for sale. My friend assumed he belonged to Norsire farm and gave me Norsire's email address. I contacted Norsire and attached a photo of the colt. Norsire will not open the attachment because they are afraid there may be a virus in it. They said that their cremello colt is for sale and if this is their colt we would be interested in purchasing him. I went to Norsire website at Norsire's request, but cannot tell if the colt on their website is this colt. The pictures on the Norsire website were taken of their colt as a weanling, but the photo of the colt pictured here looks like it was taken as a yearling. I cannot tell if they are the same colt and Norsire will not open the picture attached here. Can anybody tell me who might have this yearling cremello thoroughbred colt? Or, does anyone know who this colt is, or his breeder, so that I might contact them. I am just not familiar enough with dilute breeders to know who to contact. Thank you Pauline

I'm curious, as I know next to nothing about breeding racehorses - what is so appealing about him?

I'm not seeing where she said this.

I think you should contact Norsire and ask for an updated picture of the cremello colt they have. Then compare.

Curious, other then his color, whats so appealing about him, considering he's only a yearling.

This is what I'm guessing at, Whipple.

Norsire typically breeds their horses for sport, not racing. I'd think the appeal is in the color? He sure looks sport bred to me, not racebred. Obviously the two can intermingle, but I'd be careful getting taken away by color if he's not going to be siring race style conformation.

However, maybe I'm completely wrong? I've just noticed quite a huge difference between racebred conformation and sporthorse conformation in Thoroughbreds. Someone correct me if I'm way off.

Bridget (Norsire) is very nice, and I'm sure she'd be happy to send you up to date photos of her cremello. You might have to be a little patient as she is very busy.

Is the photo you put in this thread him? I can't see it because photobucket is blocked at work. I will try to remember to check this thread later on my own computer though, and it if is, I will post the photo on marestare for Bridget to see, and let you know if he is hers. She breeds awesome sport TBs in awesome colors :)

Well I posted the photo on Bridget's marestare board, and will let you know what she says, but I don't think it's her colt. I don't recognize him, nor the location where the photo was taken. But who knows, maybe I'm wrong, or maybe she knows who's colt he is.

Hi - I know who this colt is - email me and I will be happy to fill you in on the details:

truecolours@xplornet.com

We also have a fabulous 2009 cremello sabino TB colt for sale that can be seen at:

"Gatsby" Photos

He is by my stallion - Guaranteed Gold (16.1hh cremello TB stallion) out of Colour Conspiracy (16.2hh palomino & white TB mare of the Puchilingui bloodlines) and he should mature to the 16.2-16.3hh range

Here are a few "newborn" pictures of him so he can see his markings - sort of!: (he has 4 high stockings that go to his stifles and elbows, lots of belly white, white across his withers and extensive white on his face as well)

He is actually the first (and only!) "real" cremello sabino TB colt out there, that has markings that would fit within the APHA definition of acceptable white markings for dual registration. The rest that are declared as "sabino's" have some facial white and some leg white, but no body white and the leg markings do not go above the knees or hocks either. There are a few "real" cremello sabino TB fillies but this one is the first and ONLY colt no matter what anyone else says on their websites ... ;)





And:



And:




As well - we have the 2 year old palomino & white sabino TB colt - Remember My Name - by Guaranteed Gold out of Puchi Trap shown as a yearling:



And:



And a few weeks ago as a just turned 2 year old ...



He is 16hh up front now and 16.1hh in behind. His full sister is just under 17hh as a 5 year old and he should also mature in that 16.3hh range as well ...

Let me know if either of these youngsters are of interest to you at all!

Oh! And the colt above that started this thread is by a son of my stallion - Guaranteed Gold - but I would really like to see a "real" picture of him instead of this one that is photoshopped (look around the head, how the halter fits - its very much photoshopped) to see what he "truly" looks like all by himself ...

TrueColors' colts look much better, conformation-wise, to me.

I'm still wondering what makes that colt in the OP so good for racing - I am not being snarky, I truely would like to know.
