Okies ... found a little guy I'm going to take a serious look at this weekend. He's a little younger than I wanted, but I do have someone who can break him to saddle and get his basics down. I *could* do it myself, but since I'm 50, I obviously would prefer not to! LOL
Here's his ad with a good bit of photos. Not great confirmation shots but if someone spots something please do speak up.
Super Cute Reg 1/2 Arab/Paint
Here's his pedigree.
Sharp Dress Man Part-bred Arab
Nothing really impressive *coughs* no pun intended. I was able to trace part of his Arab side to some Crabbet and polish lines. A BIG plus for me is he has Fadheilan who is the sire of my all time favorite stud Fadjur. Of course it means virtually zero as he's so far back but it did give me a SQUEEEEEE for a moment ;) I don't intend on stepping foot into a show ring ever again so really pedigree is for my own amusement.
He has not been tested for HYPP which has already been addressed with the seller. I will not purchase a positive horse so that must be done if I decide to go further with this.
Upside - He appears at this point to take on the best of both worlds as far as Arab/QH-Paint cross which I like very much.
Downside - *Could* be HYPP positive which would make this whole post pointless. Younger than I wanted which isn't really a downside just not *ideal*.
