    Well you have seen her in person so i'll take your word just that 2nd pic looks like she a darker strip on her back.

    It's just a shadow from the barn.

    I agree that she's just a very unusually colored buckskin. Similar to the "wild bay" coloring, but with a cream gene too LOL.

    Just to be on the safe side, I would go ahead and have her tested for HYPP. Knowing for certain would never be a bad thing.

    Given a bit of time to fill out and grow up a bit, she should be a very nice looking little filly. Her hocks are a bit straight, but other than that, she looks to have good conformation for a backyard bred horse. If she grows up decently balanced, it's not too bad of an investment for that price.

    Wow, I live in MB and completely disagree with your rant about the quality of horses. The most expensive horse here is 10k?? No way. I've ridden horses that sold for more then 10k.

    There are backyard breeders all over the world. You must mingle with only that crowd to have such a negative perspective!

    Just had to defend my hometown respectable breeders ;)

    Buckskin. Bear in mind also that this is a yearling. It can take a few years for the dark points of a bay based horse to really be "set".

    Thank you Lins. That rant was almost...comical.

    "Nobodys tests their horses. Nobody cares here." What a statement.

    *shakes head*

    This is an interesting discussion regarding the "purebred grade GH" claim. I can see both sides. Maybe just call her unregistered QH? We have an unregistered appy at my barn....no one claims that he isn't an appy (but he has the benefit of his coloring being LOUD). I do agree that buying an unregistered horse is a risk.

    Regarding the HYPP status: the SPB that I lease is impressive bred and does not have HYPP, hopefully that gives your friend some glimmer of hope. I also know a horse with confirmed HYPP who is living a happy productive life, his owner just has to be super cautious about his diet and his exercise win the heat of the summer here in the humid midwest. Obviously it doesn't work for every horse with HYPP, but his owner manages.

    Oh give me a break. I've lived here my entire life and although we DO have a few good breeders and trainers, 90% of the expensive stock sells OUTSIDE Manitoba. I'm not saying we don't produce some nice horses, I'm saying they don't SELL here. You have to be blind to actually believe that Manitoba is on the same level as virtually any horse community in the US. I've BEEN to these barns, I've seen firsthand how much knowledge is lacking when it comes to breeding. I'm not saying absolutely everyone in Manitoba is like this but the uneducated far outweigh the educated. We're seriously lacking in even adequate veterinary services for such things.

    And now, if you don't mind, this was a post about color, not your completely unfounded opinions about what she SHOULD be buying.

    Thanks smrobs - I think she's a decent little filly for what she is. All Ashley is interested in is a project to work with and use for light trail riding when she's old enough. She just doesn't need anything fancy.

    Thankies! I think she's pretty excited that she's actually buckskin - she didn't really want another palomino but fell in love with this little gals demeanor. She's very sensitive and respectful of space, I was able to move her anywhere I wanted with a finger tip. At the end of the day, temperament was at the top of the list, conformation second and color last. It's nice when things work out in the fun color department though! Really excited to see how she matures with her color.

    Lins - I apologize if you felt I was disrespecting the respectable Manitoba breeders, it wasn't my intention. I didn't say the most expensive horse was 10K, I said for sale and that Manitobans wouldn't buy it. Most successful riders in Manitoba are finding their horses outside of Manitoba. Of course there are always exceptions and we DO have some lovely Warmblood breeders here, I just find we are a little slow catching up with the rest of the world in the way we conduct our equine business.
