You mean pinto coloring, I believe. Paint is a breed, not a color.

Joshie - I don't think he's ribby I think it has to do more with the position the horse is in (prancing) and his coloring as his sides flex if that makes sense. I could be wrong but it looks more like ripples in coat than ribs to me.

Wow she is just lovely - as are the others. I've seen so many horses bred just for color where conformation and ability are sacrificed but I have to say kudos to you! All your horses are not just lovely color wise, but also well put together and look to be wonderful athletes as well! Nicely done and congrats on some beautiful babies!
Thank you so very very much. I truly appreciate your comments a lot!

I actually DID mean Paint and not Pinto. The APHA allows TB's into their registry as long as they have the required white markings. We got several registered with them before the OPP came into effect, with Puchi Trap being one of them. So now any of her foals by any TB stallion are eligible for APHA registry - either in te Regular Registry or as Breeding Stock - depending on what markings they have. And HER foals as well, being APHA registered, can also be bred to TB's and produce dual registered babies as well

Actually I was NOT 100% happy with his condition at this time. These pictures were taken in July, smack in the middle of breeding season for him and he had lost a lot of weight this year. I had him boarded out (we didnt have our own farm at the time) and he simply did not do as well as I would have liked in that environment

Now - if I see ANY hint of ribs at all, he gets his grain upped right away plus I know his tendency to lose weight through the breeding season, so we stay right on top of it. I LOVE this picture except for the outline of the ribs. But on the positive side, he DID stay clean for longer than 2 minutes which is some kind of world record for him!!!

I've seen your stud, but was iffy just because I know many people breed for color not quality. Seeing these foals has convinced me his color is just the icing on the cake. You have some STUNNING babies there!

What do they do mostly? Are they bred more for hunter, jumpers, dressage?

Thank you SO much!

Honestly - it all depends on the mare, and her breed as to what the intended use for the foal is

I have one client with an old style, imported Elite Hanoverian mare by Weltemeyer that bred to GG to produce a dressage baby and another lady with a fabulous Morgan dressage mare that also bred to GG for a dressage baby, but I would not honestly NOT promote GG as a dressage sire. I think they'll do fine up to a certain level and I'd be so pleased if they managed to go further than that, but there are honestly better dressage bred stallions out there ...

I think as far as jumpers go - he'd probably produce a nice 4'-4'6" level jumper but again - there are jumper sires that have competed at the highest levels that could probably produce a better jumper prospect than he could, but again - I'd love to be proven wrong on that one!

His babies are starting to excel as hunters, in the eventing discipline, on the line in Hunter Breeding classes. We have several AQHA and APHA mare owners that have bred to him to produce WP horses and they love their GG youngsters!

There are also some GG youngsters that will be hitting the race track this year and next so it will be fun as well to see if they have some talent on the track as well

We have also had some clients with Draft mares and Draft cross mares that wanted to lighten up their foals, and those are destined for field hunting, pleasure riding, low level showing, etc - just "forever" horses that some clients wanted in pretty gold and buckskin packaging!

I think overwhelmingly, people that have seen GG in person LIKE him but don't completely and totally LOVE him. But when they see what he is producing, they absolutely LOVE those foals and that's fine with me. We have found him to be very much an improvement sire. He is consistently producing foals that are better than he is and better than the dam is and in many cases, those youngsters that have hit breeding age are now producing foals that are even better than THEY are. So I am thrilled - the goal of any reputable breeding program should be to successively improve each generation and that is exactly what is happening here ...

Here is a Guaranteed Gold son - Gold Bayou as a 3 year old:



And a fabulous colt by Gold Bayou shown at a few days old:



And another one of his 2008 foals:



So - I just love seeing how these GG "grandkids" are turning out as well ...

This is one great example to use as well. This APHA mare needed some pretty-ing up to her head which was rather plain and a better topline for her foal. Her foal has the most amazing head and topline along with so many other very strong points and he was sold at a few weeks of age as a stallion prospect:



And one of my favorite pictures of him - he's just an exquisitely beautiful colt!:



So - as long as GG can accomplish this out of a wide variety of mares, I am SO pleased with what is being accomplished ...

Your horses are completely breath taking. Absolutely stunning. Not only do they have amazingly flashy colours but they also look like the puzzle pieces are all in their right spots lol.

Do you have any photos of his draft cross foals?
More interested in the clyde/tb cross myself.

I absolutely LOVE GG, there is just something that pulls me towards Cremello's even though most people find them ugly. I've been caught looking at your site many many times before running into this forum, its amazing to me the people the internet can lead you to.

I really want to breed my Clyde mare around 2012 (as stated in the 2010 foals thread).
