O.K. I'd like to hop on here and help Amberly out about the American Blazer Horse if I could. Her information is correct, they are a size breed with an emphasis on stock horse type. They are very gentle good minded animals with a hardy constitution. 13 to 15 hands by the age of 5. If they exceed or are under this height by 5, their papers are surrendered.
Yes, it is a fairly new breed with many out crosses to various breeds as long as the particular mares met Neils stringent requirements (height, bone, short back and athleticism) to cross with Blaze. Consequently we DO have a few gaited horses which are a pleasure to ride. As far as some one cashin in on a new thing... well.... I guess that didn't work out so well for him. But as far as his passion for a good and functional horse that could put in a days work, he did a bang up job. I've never had one of my horses shod yet ( I'm not opposed to it) and I ride in the owyhees with never a chip or crack to speak of.
oh yah and no double dilutes are allowed (no blue eyes) and no greys either. Any other questions feel free to ask.
