    You guys have NO idea how much it means to have somebody call him pretty D I have had judges sigh when they walk up to him in halter, give me a dirt look then walk away without hardly looking him over. Thank you so much, he's my little buddy!:))

    Every show I go to, people ask me how my yearling is doing...ouch. Lol he has gone through some pretty awkward stages! Just a late bloomer is all. His 3/4 brother is a year younger and a over a hand taller.

    Ah don't take those halter judges hate to heart they expect your horse to have a big massive body on tiny fine bones and feet so its navicular by the time it's five. Your horse will be useable and is pretty colored to boot! But yeah he's short my coming two year old and him are the same height. There's still some growing time left but he may not get much bigger.

    Question how can he have a brother that is 3/4th's?

    These are Foundation QH judges so they are supposed to judge different, but there will be politics wherever you go. Sure, Dusty isn't 1500 pounds, but his legs are correct and has great feet. He has an ugly neck, but soft eyes. Doesn't bother me a whole lot, I'm not really competitive in halter anyways:P thanks! Maybe the judges are just blinded by the zebra stripes :P

    I get that question a lot:P

    Lance is his brother. Dusty's dam, is the dam of Lance's dam. They have the same sire...it's confusing xD

    Love looking at all the duns, buckskins, and so on...

    I have a question, I put 30 days on this 4 year old gelding. He was out of a big blk/wht paint/percheron stallion, and his dam was 1/4 Saddlebred and 3/4 QH (sorrel or chestnut, I can't remember). He was a dream to ride. But what would you call his coloring?



    He was a big boy, at around 16.2 hh

    Here is his half sister, who is out of a QH stud

    Either brown or bay with pangre I'm not sure from the photos but that's my guess. You can always make a thread about him I bet chiilaa and Posiedon would know for sure but I think with black bred to chestnut you can only get bay/brown black or sorrel.

    EDIT: looking again he kinda has that brownskin (brown + cream) look to him so maybe the sire had a hidden cream gene since it doesn't show on black.

    Thanks! I know pretty much nothing about color genetics. I did buy a little book called Horse Colour Explained, by Jeanette Gower. It's an incredible book, but most of the types and and types 2s all went right over my head. LOL!
