    Nothing spectacular at all. Heck, I would take him for $10 bucks.

    Ugly head, freakish neck, low pasterns. Ehhh.

    He needs to be gelded. His owner had his tested for chimerism I believe and was planning on using him as a stud until his test came back negative. At the time the owner sent the test off, she had him listed at over 4500.


    His current owner is also breeding "seasonal" brindles...

    Umm... he's not "ugly" but there's quite a few issues with the way he's put together.. however, given the fact that he's still young and still growing that might change once he's fully mature. BUT without knowing anything about his parentage/history I wouldn't pay anything close to what they're asking for him.

    Sounds to me like someone's trying to make a quick buck off of a "unique" color, nothing more.

    Wth is a "seasonal brindle" anyways?? Either the animal is brindle or not.. there's no in between IMO.

    According to the people she bought him from, during certain seasons he's brindle, others he's not. In other words he's not a brindle, but she got taken for a good amount of money.

    "Seasonal" brindle is basically textured hair that only shows certain times of the year.

    Well I guess I should have just posted the pics and not the whole ad, I was more posting because of his unusual color/markings then anything else. Neat that someone else knew of him! I didn't see anything in the ad saying he's breeding quality, and I agree he's not worth $1000, I wouldn't even pay $10 for him, but only because I have my plate full as it is and don't need other mouth to feed, but it's really none of my business what his owner chooses to price him at.

    Alittle interesting that they desided against breeding him because he tested neg for chimerism, since that would not pass on to his foals.

    I know nothing about this colt other then what was in the ad, and I'm starting to think I should think twice about posting pics of my own horses after seeing how he was torn apart (I didn't know anything about any ideas of breeding him, the ad doesn't say anything about that, he's definitely not breeding quality).

    I just thought his color was really interesting and thought I'd see what others thought, about his color! And even wondered if he might be a chimerism, knowing that he's not really makes me currious what caused his coloring (I've seen the spotted mules to, and it does look similar).

    Personally, I think he'd make a really cute gelding for someone, with the added bonus of a unique color.

    AFAIK there is really no known cause for the calico look in horses right now.

    I did just jump in with the information that I know about him. There was quite a bit shared about this colt elsewhere.

    I still stand behind the fact he should be gelded and it should be before he goes to someone else. I can foresee someone snapping him up to breed to him because of his color alone. Not saying it will happen, but I can see it happening. To many people breed for color and color alone...

    Yeah, I notice that a lot of people breed for color alone now a days and it's really quite sad. You'd think they would be more responsible breeders than they are, but I guess money is more important than improving their breed.

    I think he is cute, not stallion worthy, but unique. The only thing that would get me is that the only way to see that he is unique is that you'd have to be standing on top of him to notice the different colors. In the pics from far away it doesn't look that unique. I wonder what caused his coat to do that though????

    I think he's sweet but I don't know much about conformation or what a foal will look like when he's older. I've seen some horses with features like a short, thick neck and a roman nose that would be ugly on some horses but it looks great on others.
