Britt, I agree, that's why I bought one of his daughters! [and since gave her to my mother, because she's too small - I like them big and Satin's going to top out at MAYBE 14.2]

...but I love Satin, and him, enough that I'm definitely considering finding a nice mare that will put some height on a baby, and breeding her to him, even though as far as I'm aware anything that will put height on wouldn't produce a registerable foal to an unregistered stallion. He's colour registered but that doesn't really count.

Oh didn't realize it was in Australia - yes they typically carry the dun factor, but doesn't mean it'll carry on and I think they have their own version of dun, but maybe it's just a language thing. I can tell he's a buckskin, not a dun, but look at his mane and tail - looks VERY fjord to me. I'm looking at pictures of Fjord's now, they don't all have dorsal stripes.

That's just frosting, very common in buckies. I thought it was maybe something "special" when I got Satin, but nope, just frosting. Frosting is pretty though!

pshha..how hard is that to figure? He is clearly a "gorgeous"!!!
dbarabians and Nokotaheaven like this.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

Those pointed ears just spell out Marwari Horse to me.

Faline, that's a pretty typical Arabian trait :) my Anglo Arab gelding has very similar ears, I have seen TB's with even tippier ears, and purebred Arabs with EVEN tippier.

Not to mention, I don't think there's a single Marwari or Kathawari in Australia.

I see Welsh (maybe cob) and some sort of gypsy, since gypsy tend to be pretty small.

COB...he's so cute though. I agree with the arab, the ears give that away....maybe some Clydesdale...hard to say though. His color is magnificent.
