His stud fee is $850. And he's a lot better looking and more accomplished then the perlino stud.

Your chances would pretty much be 50/50 for a grulla or a red dun, with bay dun also being a possibility if your mare carries agouti. However, the dun is by no means guaranteed - you're almost just as likely to get another sorrel foal depending on the zygosity of the genetics on the pair.

I would love a sabino Arabian - I think they are gorgeous. I've planned for awhile to breed my mare to Khartoon Khlassic. Am I doing it because he's sabino? No. I'm doing it because I love the way he is built. The sabino is a bonus, even though I'm aware she may not throw a sabino foal. If Khartoon Khlassic died, would I breed to his accomplished son Pikhasso? Probably not - I am not fond of the way he's built even though he has sabino.

We all have colors we'd love to have, but buying is the only way to get those colors in a good looking foal. We all love unique colors, but breeding is a crapshoot at best. My chestnut mare comes from many lines of bays and blacks, her dam was bay and her sire was black and oh, lookie, another dang chestnut! That's the way it is though - you simply cannot breed for color. If you manage to find a good stud with a color you like, it's an ok risk, but never a guarantee. But how good is the fun colored baby going to be when it doesn't have the conformation to do anything but sit in a pasture?

Another thing that bugs me about Pocos Blue Eyed King is; if he has such perfect conformation, why don't they have any full body pix of him??

I totally agree with you and I'm not exactly looking for color but a good conformation horse that can perform. I just came across the perlino because I was looking to see if there were any because they are rare. I came across the grulla when I was looking at studs of all colors, and he works cows which is what I am looking to do, and he happened to have beautiful coloring, too.

I would try a palimino stallion with a buckskin mare.I have a friend (aunt) that is a judge in full size and miniature horses and i'll try to get a hold of her and see what she thinks. But I think your better off just buying one.


Thanks!

I also agree that buying a buckskin would be a heck of a lot easier but again, I am not breeding for a buckskin, I was only curious to see if there was any good studs that would make a buckskin foal, which there isn't, because I do love the color. I am looking for the foal to be a good cow horse and possibly a new color to ad to the herd. My mare that I mentioned is just a light riding horse and doesn't do much and has produced gorgeous foals before so I thought it would be an extremely fun and educational experience. Please no more comments about just breeding for color, because I'm not. What do you guys think of the grulla stud?

FIRST on the Grullo. HERDA. There is no mention of it and his dams sire is a known carrier if memory serves correctly.

Also I have looked at him before when someone posted him. Although he dose have some accomplishments it is only in foundation QH. To me that is like playing in a limited sandbox where only certain kids can play and he is not even the best there. I comend then for training and getting him out and doing something but come one lets play with the big boys if you are going to ask that type of stud fee. There are quite a few well proven stallions standing for that or less.

Over all if you are breeding for color you can do worse but to me I would look for a better stallion and do not let color factor in. Also if you want a good and I mean really good nice stallion who will give you a very good chance of color I would sugest Hollywood White. If you are looking for a performance stallion you will not find much better.

I suspect Hollywood White is Ee Aa CRCR as he has thrown all single dilute creams and were he homozygous for black or agouti he would have done that.

So with the OP's mare being ee for sure but we have no idea on the agouti all we can guess right now is that with that breeding she could have Palomino, Buckskin, or Smokey Black.

Correct however she would be using a stallion who has A LOT more going for him but color. Hollywood White has an out standing pedigree. His is put together very well and has an out standing performance and sire record. This breeding to get a certain color just dose not sit well with me. If you want a buckskin go buy one. If you want a quality foal then start with a quality mare and pick a quality stallion and get this crap about color out of your head.

Oh no I complete agree with you, he is the nicest stallion she'd be able to breed to have the possibility of a buckskin bred for what she wants. I'm just saying genetically him being a perlino doesn't guarantee a buckskin, and that was her initial question so I was just answering that. I don't she could go better than Hollywood White.
