That gelding is my fav too.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

I think everyone loves that guy except for the bidders . He's not got a single bid yet. I bet it's because he's older.

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, sometime I do want to adopt a mustang, I think they make great riding horses. Of course I'll want to get every single one I see when the time comes lol. I love that one with the ears, and just the little bit of color on the top of his head. Gorgeous.
About the lacing, it can be caused by one of two things that we know of so far, genetics, or a fungal infection such as rain rot. It's been proven in standardbreds that a certain stallion had the "gene" or whatever it is, and as he got older, the "pattern" got larger and larger until it finally reached his withers. If it's genetic, it generally starts on the top of the butt, and as the horse gets older, spreads up towards the horse's withers. It always stays just on the topline, never extends down the barrel. My tb had it, and as she was extremely well cared for and was only 8 when we got her, so we got her whole history, we believe it was genetic with her. Unfortunately I don't have any great pictures of it, nor do I have any documenting any changes over the 3-4 years I owned her. It definitely can be caused by rain rot though, and I haven't heard of the actual lacing pattern looking any different based on what caused it, so who knows how the mustang really got it. Still a neat "marking" though. Man, they have some nice looking mustangs. Gotta save up the money, get the land, and build the appropriate fencing to house one.

Tempest, that buckskin was on my watch list as well, I just love his build. I too like the coloring on the silver bay gelding, but he's just too short and stocky for my taste. I am actually a registered bidder this time, as I am currently in the market for a horse and have appropriate facilities, but I'm not thinking I'm actually going to bid this time around. I am looking to move soon, and my current mare is pregnant, so it is just not the best time to be committing to a mustang. But gosh darn some of those are lookers!
