Can I get one in pink? I'm not much of a purple fan.

Okay, I'm being a little mean...sorry.

It's too bad that your ignorance is making it so you cannot appreciate one best horses out there. I don't have the time to argue with people who don't want to believe what is right or see the good in one little horse. It's sunny outside and I am not going to waste my time arguing and I am going riding.

I don't have time for trollers. I hope that one day you'll see something good in all horses like me and a lot of other horseman's do.
No one is saying there is anything at all wrong with YOUR horse. But you are being naive. Blazer horses are not a "breed", and the registry is a joke. Both of those are an unarguable fact, but neither of them are anything at all personal against you or your personal horse.

My personal horse is an Araloosa that can go places and do things most horses don't dare dream of, but I am not so naive as to be blind that he is a conformational nightmare, and is so ugly he is (almost) cute - he is a cull from my Araloosa breeding program from a sire and dam that just didn't mesh...a failed experiment if you will. He is an Araloosa - not a "breed", despite the fact that I could register him as an Appy with ApHC. People that have known me for years have heard me say many (no doubt to them too many) times that I don't consider ApHC as a breed registry either...because it is not.

So...I can't speak for anyone else, but I am not picking on the Blazer registry because I say exactly the same thing about my own registry - the ApHC, and I have Appys. A registry is a registry, but not all registries are BREED registries. If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it is most likely a duck, but if it has 4 legs, teeth, and hair instead of feathers, it is probably something else...

The Blazer guy needs to update his website. They still have the 2011 stuff on there.

One horse does not constitute a "breed". That's like grouping all of Bold Ruler's ancestors together and calling them Rulers.

A breed is usually developed when a horse stamps something special on it's get, like the chunky TB that threw chunky , fast horses, and they , after a few generations, became known as QH. TWH's came to be when the gait got developed from pacers and Morgans, etc.

It is a society, not a breed, IMO.

If your horse thinks your the greatest person in the world dont seek a second opinion.

Many of the responses here are ignorant and immature when it comes to understanding what goes in to a new breed. The Blazer Horse registry is still an open registry which allows cross breeding with a non-blazer to a blazer and the foal is not registered until 2 years or later and is scrutinized to make sure that it meets the breed requirements. Horses from 2 Blazer parents that do not meet standard are given a pedigree but are not registered. These horses are not small Quarter horses. They are their own breed and a nice one at that. Many of the older breeds have been so overbred that they are not what they were meant to be. The ones that are still well bred are costly. I have run across many badly bred QH, TB, TW etc. I wonder if any of those commenting disparagingly have heard of the Marsh Tacky, an old breed, or the American Walking Pony, a new breed and what each registry does to maintain the purity of breed? Amberley, your horse is beautiful and, having a Blazer myself, I know what a prize you have :)
