Pretty color, in this case is rather like putting lipstick on a pig. JMHO. I had a suspicion that was your reason for being interested, which was why I asked the question. There certainly were no other redeeming factors, and even then, from that picture, I have seen much prettier colored horses.

Her color *caught* my eye. I'm not completely stupid to go and buy a horse without considering conformation and what not. She's the first cremello to pop up that is big in a reasonable price range in my state

She has a very dippy back, and long pasterns that are quite steep, her neck is under developed and im not sure but i think she could have shorter cannons, but i'm no expert theyre just the main points that i see! Good luck in finding your new horse :)

Would you touch this horse if it was a plain old bay?

For me bay is actually an IMPROVEMENT on cremello, I hate DDs, but to each their own. Anyway.

I would not touch this horse with a 10 foot pole regardless of its color. It is a conformational train wreck. No scope, and it will not hold up to the workload.

If you are that set on a cremello, I would hold off. This horse is not your best bet if you want, like I said, anything more than a pasture ornament. Others will come around, and you will be glad you waited...

I don't think there is anything wrong with looking for a color permitted people take other things into consideration. I ALWAYS keep my eye out for a black OTTB on the CANTER website or a silver dapple morgan lol -- it's okay to desire an exotic color but as zexious said, hold off on this one. The OP will just have be more patient for the "right" horse :)

I've always had a crazy weak spot for a blue roan , so I know how a person can just WANT that color!

The colour alone would put me off! I have never liked 'pink' skin, leads to to many problems when there is a great deal of pigmentation lacking.

I agree with Tiny on the conformation. Not the sort to go eventing.

This is why I'm happy that my favourite colour is chestnut. No shortage of those anywhere.
