    Curious what you make of him

    So I feed for one of my friends when he goes out rodeoing and he's got two geldings. The older is a cute gray (he'd die if he knew I called Booger "cute" lol). The other is a coming 3-year-old grade gelding (I think he's coming three...he may be coming four). Anyway, he's a grade and my friend doesn't know anything about his breeding. He got him for free from someone and is going to turn him into a roping horse.

    Anyway, I have been curious about Bones' coloring since I met him. Any ideas?

    I'm know he's a bay roan and that he's got sabino going on. But anything else that stands out?




    Those are the best two pics I have of him. And yes, my friend is fine with me putting up the pics.

    Some better pictures without the fence blocking would be helpful. I would guess splash and sabino from those. Also, when were the last time his feet were done?

    The only other pics I have are in partial shade (inside the barn as he was eating). Booger (the gray) is friendly, but Bones doesn't care too much for most people. I can go in the stall with him, but he acts like I'm going to eat him.

    As for his feet. YES, I know they need to be done. He isn't my horse and I have no say in when they're done. I have no idea when they were done last. I feed for my friend maybe once a month and that's all the contact I have with these horses.

    I would guess a brown roan base with at least sabino coloring too. His markings, color, and general look really remind me of a Clydesdale, I bet he's some sort of cross (maybe a generation or 2 removed LOL).

    I hope your friend is able to keep him sound. With him being as far back at the knee as he appears, roping on him will be really stressful and it's likely he'll end up unsound more often than not.

    I keep telling my friend he looks like he's got clyde in him, but he just says "Nope. He's a grade quarterhorse." EVERYONE who sees him-including my dad, who is sooo not a horse person-says he looks like he's got some clyde in him.

    And I agree about how far back he is at the knee. It makes me cringe, honestly. But, my friend (as much as I luv him) is a fairly typical rodeoing cowboy from around our area who thinks if the horse does the job, that's all that matters. Unfortunately, there's not much I can do to change his attitude. He reminds me of my BO so much.

    I guarantee that he has Clyde in him. I'd bet my savings on it.

    I don't mean to hijack your thread DraftyAires, but I read the comments on this horse being back at the knee and now I'm curious. I thought that back at the knee meant that the knee and cannon bone were offset so that the front of the leg looked the same as the back, as though the horse was double jointed. I'm not seeing anything like that in this horse, though. Am I wrong? Would you guys mind explaining to me what back at the knee really is?

    Thanks! Whenever I read that a horse has a confo fault that I haven't yet learned to recognise, I start to think "Oh no! What if my horse has this too and I just couldn't tell!?" Haha.

    Also, the first thing I thought when I saw those pictures is that that horse must have Clydesdale in him somewhere. I'd be bragging about that instead of denying it, but that's just me. I love Clydes. I agree with the conclusion on his color as well.

    OMG his coloring is so much like Sky's. From my experience that has been hard to come by.
    I was told in my color thread that Sky was a bay (possibly roan) sabino, so that's what I'm going to go with here because he also looks like he has some black on his legs.

    He has a neat color. I don't see draft in this horse. Roan, paint, no draft.
