Here is my biased opinion of Saddlebreds
, they are all different. I have known many who have the personality of puppydogs and who are just the best horses in the world, and many who will eat raw meat(figure of speech), and of course MANY in between.
They are very varying in thier individual personalities. Generally, they are very active, very alert, very willing and very personable.
Of just the yearlings, we have: a big spook, a motherly princess, a 'overgrown labrador', a sweet sweet sweetheart, a mini-show horse(he thinks VERY highly of himself. You say his name and he poses), an adult in a yearling body, and one who is VERY opinionated, and slightly aggressive(sucker came at me with his mouth open when I went to work with his legs). I love them all because they are all so different from each other. This is one of the best groups of babies we have ever had.
Buckskins are actually pretty rare for saddlebreds. I have never seen one in real life and only seen a handful online. Most of the ones I have seen though are real dusky and thier markings are not definite. They kind of blend together up the leg, and they don't look very clear. I know they are gaining popularity, but overall I think it is a politics thing. It seems that any but the standard colors need to be 'X' times better than the common colors like chestnut/bay/black/grey(the newest fad color). Palominos and paints, greys too and now buckskins have to be freaking fantastic to get to the top in a lot of cases. It is only because they draw the eye and you see them more in a class full of chestnuts. Same with horses with lots of white on thier legs(you can see thier motion more) and a couple others.
I would LOVE to have a buckskin saddlebred. That is my favorite color of horse. Maybe when they gain popularity I will have one.
Now the important stuff. TWO QUESTIONS for you.
1) What do you mean by 'devilish'?
2) Do you have any pictures of your boy? (ETA: Just saw them from your other thread. OH...MY....Goodnessssssss......I need a towel for my keyboard.)
