    I have to agree with trailhorserider, you can't REALLY fully assess a horses conformation without seeing them in person, pictures can't really tell EVERYTHING. I'm sure the baby will be well loved no matter what.. I know none of my horses have perfect conformation, and a couple of them had parents with great conformation.. Just depends.

    Especially the photo of the stallion. Bad camera angle, but boy, he looks like a hunk to me! I love tanky horses. But even not considering that, what do you see wrong with him? I certainly can't see anything glaring. Maybe if he were standing square with the camera at a better angle, we could all assess more, but still, I don't know how you can fault him at this angle.
    I didn't say I saw anything glaringly wrong with either horse, I only asked what she saw in the pair that made them good for breeding. Does the simple fact there isnt something "glaringly wrong" mean a horse should be bred? I don't think so. I asked the question more to see if color wasn't her main reason for breeding.

    As it turns out she didn't breed the mare herself, and had no choice in stud. That's fine. I still wish people didn't breed because they have an intact stud hanging around but at least this foal will have a home, no matter what color it is.

    Hmm, I'm no color expert, but she is gorgeous!

    K.. I completely agree with this, there are a lot of "studs" out there that should have been gelded as soon as possible... lol

    I'm really not out to start a fight, just always interested in hearing why people chose to breed horses rather then buy a young horse instead. I said nothing bad about, nor did I pick at either horses possible faults.

    Oh I completely understand zeke.. I would have never thought you were trying to start a fight. That's the one thing people ALWAYS have problems with, haha.. Interpretting the feelings behind text. :)
    I have felt bad for a few people on here that got attacked by people for asking a question, but I didn't really get that vibe from you, and you even said you were playing devils advocate.

    And that is also why I didn't ask why she thought they were breeding quality. I was more interested in if it was a future breeding or not. Seeing as the mare is already breed, any discussion on it is a moot point.

    I also was just curious as to what she thought made these two breeding quality, if she was going to be the one breeding them. ;)

    Hey Zeke... gotta say something to you.. I've read A LOT of your other posts and you seem to be really smart when it comes to horses.. I respect your opinion and I didn't think you were trying to start an argument either.. I just wanted to let y'all know that they aint mine so I had no control over how they're cared for or why she bred them.. to be honest I would've never had bred her to ANY stud without some sort of knowledge of her breeding as, like you said in one of your posts, there are WAAAY too many young horses out there that need GOOD homes to be breeding willy nilly the way a lot of people do "just cuz".. I knew what you were getting at but I have no clue why she bred her at all..

    I was mostly interested in the color possibilities of the foal and what other possible white patterning the parents have to give them non-tobi traits.

    Thanks to those of you that commented on the mare.. I think she's pretty too and yes, I did get drawn to her because of her color BUT I'm pretty sure she's going to be great for my hubby and I to ride around for the fun of it.

    As far as the foal goes.. the little one will have a home with us regardless of color, shape, sex or whatever.. it could be purple with pink pokadots and we'd love it!! LOL

    Thanks mystic, that means a lot. She really is a pretty girl, buckskin paints are a love of mine, if she had blue eyes I might have to steal her!

    Good luck with the foal, I'm sure no matter what it'll be a cutie!! Wish I knew a thing about color genetics so I could guess what it's going to look like!

    I have a couple other photos of the pally stally hehehehe.. had to put that in there like that The owner said that he was FAT and DIRTY so forgive those.. he's usually not like that... He's registered with three diff. Reg. One being TWHBEA and the other two I don't remember. His registered name is Delights Color Me Gold.. barn name Cody. The mare's name is Sahara and, as y'all know, she's not registered but according to the owner, she can be registered as a SSH. Dunno how that works.. and I don't think I'm going to worry about it either LOL. I do have a couple other pics of her too... If y'all want me to I can post them as well.
