    I am not incorrect. If you would like, I can email one of the best horse people I know and let you know her response. Cremello is actually a more of a yellow/cream color. However, My entire family calls him white, and all the members of my 4-H club call him white. I have seen a cremello, and they are more creamy-colored. I am not saying you're incorrect though, don't read me wrong.

    I expect Trakehners must me more common over here in Europe than America, especially with the Warmblood boom going on right now. My boss bred her Thoroughbred mare to a Trakehner stallion, he's turning out to be a cracking dressage horse! But yeah, I think if you asked most semi-knowledgeable horse people here in the UK about them, they would probably say "European Warmblood"

    I would love to talk to more people that own them, as to this date I have not! My girl two owners ago was a dressage champ but not sure what level and such. A change in her life forced that owner to sell. I really do not know details. Too bad I know nothing about dressage. Could be fun!

    Trakehners are a german warmblood, not that uncommon, at least not in Canada lol. Mainly used for dressage or jumping. Pretty pretty horses =)

    You should just pay the $25 to get him tested at UC davis. You just pull some hairs and mail it in. They will tell you what color he is, genetically.

    Definitely known in the Pacific Northwest. They are both jumpers and dressage horses. Gorgeous animals.

    Is there more to this blazer breed? It sounds like someone thought they'd try to cash in on some market. Such a strange cross of breeds.
    I also vote perlino, true white horses do not exist

    I have two horses - Golley and Brisco. They are Blazers. Never heard of one? Honestly, I'm not very surprised. Blazers are not very common - at least ad far as I know.
    Blazers were first bred in Star, Idaho by Neil Hinck - the founding father. He combined the Morgan, American Quarter Horse, American Saddlebred, and the Thoroughbred. Little Blaze was the first Blazer - bred in 1959.
    Blazers are bred to be no smaller than 13 hands and no bigger than 15 hands. However, one of my horses (Brisco) is white, has blue eyes, and is about 17 hands. He is a blazer, he just can't be registered as one because Blazers technically cannot be white, or blue-eyed.


    Amberly, I find this all very interesting - colour aside. I also find the registry information, very lacking on the history of the breed. Maybe you can fill us in or suggest someone with reliable knowledge of the breed, to join and jump in here.

    So Little Blaze was the first Blazer, right? According to research I did on my own, he was possibly a QH x Morgan and was not the end results of many generations of trial and error, to get a particular look. So this crossbred horse must have been bred to the other breeds listed, which would have then produced tons of other crossbreds. To get a 'breed' which breeds true, it would have taken many more generations of trial and error, to say nothing of careful culling when the horses reached adulthood, for the Blazers to have become a breed. I found that the reason for the breed, was to breed a smallish, big-boned breed, for ranch work. Strange then, that the founder would have added Thoroughbreds and Saddlebreds into the mix which would have added finer bone and taller horses than desired. Is there a list of pedigrees anywhere, showing the generations of several horses and the breeds introduced?

    1959 is a very short time really, for a breed to have been formed. Several of Blazers grandchildren in fact, could still be alive. I'd like to see a lot more information on exactly which horses of each breed were used. Since the breed was actually founded so short a time ago, all the horses would/should have been pictures and their pedigrees, well documented. I guess I'm surprised there is not a lot more information on the registry website. Maybe someone should fill us in.

    By the very few photographs I've seen, the breed looks more like a QH than any other breed.

    Can you show us pictures of your own horse and maybe pics of his sire and dam.

    I will try my best to get more information on them.
    My mother bought my horses from a different person - who bought them form the original breeder. So I only have pictures of him, sorry for that. I hav more information somewhere, when my mom is available I will bug her to look for the papers (with her "amazing" organization skills, I'll definitely (not) find that in no time. )
    When I have more info I will post it in anther thread.
    By the way, I think you are right on the cremello. He is a white, but I am pretty sure everyone calls him cremello because it's registerable.

    From what I've learned/read on here, whites don't have blue eyes. I see a cremello QH type.. The only whites I've heard about are max sabino and other paint patterns. I've heard of dominant white, but don't know much on it. Im leaning towards the Cremello/Perlino on this guy.

    Now, as for breeds..
    1. Moyles- Developed in idaho, have small horns/bumps on head. Soild color, around 15h. Related to Datong.

    2. Gotland pony- Swedish, and until 1950 were the only ponies bred there. Closely resembles the Exmoor. Stays around 11-13h. All colors, mostly solids.

    3. Sorraia- Dun colors, live in spain. "Wild" horses. Resemble Tarpans, and stay around 14h.

    4. Mangalarga Marchador- developed in 1740 in Portugal. 14-16. Werent crossbred, gaited.
