Nice butt on that mare of yours.ha ha. You know me from the trailer postings..remember> we both traded the smaller slant for the bigger straight load.. you know my horse Dillon was hit by lightning don't you? He has his own story on horse heath.
My lights have never worked (the ones inside) so you're one up on me haha! I don't normally trailer at night though so I haven't bothered to ask Danielle about it...although now I will, since you've reminded me! She is VERY nice and very easy to deal with, I really like her!!

And yes I do remember you now, excuse my brain fart LOL

I don't own or ride one but I just love the coloring of Buckskins (Buckskin paints, esp!). If I had to choose Buckskins would probably be my favorite color. Shhhh! Don't tell my horses!!

PH I have dreamed of owning a bucky ever since I was a little kid! I finally have one and I will admit that the fact she is buckskin DID sway my decision to buy her... I hate mares and based on parents' heights she should only mature around 14.2 which is 2 inches smaller than the minimum height I wanted!

...mind you based on her current height and age (13.2 at not yet 11 months) it doesn't seem too unreasonable that she might reach 15hh. She only needs to grow another 6 inches. Either way she WILL be tall enough for me to ride, she is tall enough already!

Anyway I guess what I'm trying to say is that you will end up with a buckskin eventually, they are not that uncommon. I counted at least 6 or 7 at the show my latest photos were taken at. What surprised me was that I only saw one palomino!

Around here they seem to be, I'm always only 1 of maybe 2 at the shows I go to!

Depends on where you are I guess. And what discipline you're involved with. I'm showing in-hand at the moment and they are EVERYWHERE, but I've only seen one on the jumping circuit, none eventing, and only a couple doing dressage. They're a lot more common in Western disciplines and breeds than horses bred for English disciplines for some reason. Maybe it's all the QH in the western types? There are quite a few buckskin and palomino kids' ponies (cream is very common in welshies and the like in my area) but not many adults'/teens' horses.

There was a brown-based buckskin and a buckskin roan at the show. The roan was cool - I want one now. There were also two classic (as in golden) buckies, my buttermilk bucky, and at least one other. Mine was the only non-QH. I won't go into what I think of the current trend towards breeding for colour alone or we'll be here all week listening to me whinge and you don't want that!

Edit; also, I just went and found a guide as to what percentage of adult height they are at what age, and at 12 months they are usually around 90% of their mature height. Satin is 90% of 15hh at not even 11 months (yes I am a geek and did the math) so if the formula holds true she should end up over 15hh. Very pleased with that!

Esp not 14.1 hand buckskins like my mare

Here's my boy, Cassidy, again. I am super in love with this boy. He's my perfect buckskin, and it to me 7years to find a good natured buckskin in the area. Buckskins are very hard to find in my particular area, I only know of 2 others locally. :) So, I'm more than thrilled about Cassidy.





And, a random pic from our ride today. :)

Yep pretty much. And the ones you DO see are all QH or Paint, or welsh of course! Or in my area the occasional part-arab (with mostly welsh and riding pony blood mixed in there) and aussie stock horse. But it's not common to find a real sporthorse type buckskin, that's for sure. A lot of them sit and pop out foals, at least around here. It has a cream gene and it has a uterus so it gets bred. Sadly the ones with colour often sell for a lot more than the equivalent bay or chestnut and so people breed for colour because it'll sell for more.

I do eventing and jumpers too but because my girl is so young she's being shown in hand until she's old enough to be started to saddle.

Hoofprints, I don't think our inside light ever worked either. Totally forgot about it until we had to trailer Dillon up to Coldstream for his accupunture treatment in the early morning when it was pitch dark, wasn't until then we discovered it didn't work.
