This is the gelding I was looking at. Little patch on his front knee and that crazy hind leg.

And this filly also has a crazy front leg, the way that white patch just wraps around the front leg

It's so interesting what kinds of unusual markings are out there. I love browsing the BLM website and I keep an eye open for a horse that I can adopt (I need another like I need a hole in the head LOL).

BUT, before Dobe dies, which is still 20+ years away God willing, I will have another 'stang on my place.


Just browsing around there. This guy's markings are okay...but holy wasp waist LOL

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Haha I noticed that too. I wish they would have put a body shot up of his left side.

There really is quite a variety this time around

This red roan is gorgeous IMO.


Very pretty (color wise) splash. Although you couldn't pay me to adopt her. So many training holes! 12 rides and in a curb?!

This guys nose is just adorable

https://www.blm.gov/adoptahorse/hors...mygalleryview=
Then I just can't figure this one out. Sooty chestnut? Sooty palomino? Bay silver? I just don't know.

While it can be done without holes (I mean 12 rides and already up in a curb) on the right horse with the right trainer, I seriously doubt they have the knowledge to do it. While there are some really nice horses that they've started, I'm like you. I would never adopt one that was beyond just halter broke. I'm too darn picky about how my horses are started and ridden LOL.

With how picky I am, IMO there is no way i'd have a horse in a curb after 12 rider, other people, maybe but I have very high expectations of my horses. I want a solid w/t//l on a loose rein, w/t/ a straight line without wiggling around, loping a circle on a loose rein without any nagging, backing up softly, side passing, rollbacks, getting off my inside leg, slowing and stopping off my seat, counterbending, counter cantering, be able to collect and do flying changes all before my horses advance to a curb.

I'd much rather adopt something untouched. I'm lazy, I would much rather have a blank slate than have to do twice as much work untraining bad habits and replacing them correct ones.

His color isn't anything special and he's rather beat up but can I just say that I'm LOVING this guy right now? He has such an intelligent eye and it looks like his gaits are actually very nice for a stang! https://www.blm.gov/adoptahorse/hors...&mygalleryview= Very uphill.

Me and my father fell in love with this one.
