She has a canadian called Cobalt, who i'm pretty sure everyone on this forum wants to steal. Maybe he will have a contender with your boy, looks like a stunner!
I OWN ONE!

Take a look at my signature. As posted above, THANK YOU wild! Cobalt, my Canadian is an absolute sweetheart. I put a website up with a lot of his pictures since I've owned him, along with some videos and links.

Enjoy!

LD- Oh, he is gorgeous!! [: I am in love with the breed. Lancelot is often mistaken as a "mini Friesian".

Jessabell- Here in the States, untrained Canadians go for about $6500. That's what I bought Lancelot for as a barely undersaddle three year old. Most that were for sale in Ga. In the past few years were around $12,000.

CacheDawnTexas- Cobalt is beautiful!!! It's so exciting to finally talk to some people who own one!

I think we should make Cobalt the horseforum mascot
Thank you very much. He knows he's a cute boy. He just behaves so well, he would sit in your lap if he could.

As for the prices, the prices you are giving are essentially the same here maybe slightly higher. You will find Canadians(green under saddle) start around the $8,000 range and it goes up from there. There are some for a lot less but if you were to look at a show quality horse you are going to be spending closer to the 8,000 range.

Great horses tho. Tempers of Gold, very attractive looking, great hair, hooves. I mean I have had no concerns with my monkey. He comes when called and he just loves life.

Hi guys,
I raise Canadians here in Rimbey, Alberta. Cobalt was one of our little ones that has found an absolutely great new home. We are expecting this years babies to be showing themselves soon! Any day now the first one will arrive. Can't wait to see our first babies from Pheonix.
A Canadians name always consists of 3 names. The 1st is the farm name that he was bred at. The 2nd is his fathers name, and the 3rd is his name. That 3rd name must begin with the letter of that year. It goes through the alphabet but does not use I,o,q,v. These letters could be confused will others in a tatoo. We no longer tatoo them. They are now microchipped. The rules came in a long time ago and have been followed since. This year is W. These next few years are going to be more difficult to name for sure.
Color wise, they are generally black here in Western Canada, but chestnut, bay, and brown are just as common in Eastern Canada. I have many blacks, a chestnut mare, and a young bay mare. Our stallion, Pheonix, has thrown a bright red pinto filly last year, so we know that he will produce foals with the red gene. Hoping for some chestnuts and bays this year. It would be nice to see some more color represented in the breed in the west.
We have a Canadian Breed Show coming up the 1st weekend in June. Should have some new pictures to share after that one. There are a few pictures from the 1st show this year on my website under the Shows link and then the Rimbey Spring Show link.

Yearling
The trainer I used to work for was puting 30 days on one. She was such a sweet heart! Probably the best temperment I've ever seen in a horse!

I'm going to miss everything this year as far as the showing goes :( going to be in hospital. Would love to try to drive up to take some photos if I can, tho I will be on crutches.

Looking forwards to seeing those new babies Julie!
