Well..I may have rubbed off on my husband

We were at a production sale this weekend. I've been drooling over this guys horses for 2 years. As we're walking around looking at all the foals, my husband and I earmarked the ones we wanted to watch. My husband picked out a little grulla filly as his favorite..and he ended up buying her.

She's got some great breeding in her background. She goes back to Poco Bueno and Blackburn.

Here is her pedigree: All Breed Pedigree Query=

I am just amazed at her. She came to us straight off the pasture. Never been handled. When we went to unload her, we were so surprised to find that she was pretty outgoing and within 10 minutes we had a halter on her, within 20 minutes she was leading around and allowing us to touch her about anywhere.

I have some really crappy photos. Will get some new ones tomorrow.

A couple of my cell phone:





And some horrible ones off my nikon. (had the wrong lens on as well.)<sigh> Hate the green eye, but don't know how to get rid of it. :(






So..what do you think of her?

Cutie! Aren't you the one with the filly Calamity? Someone was asking about hernia on here and I was telling them about her.

You find the best colored halters for your babies- all so vibrant and different. What are you going to call this little one?

Honestly..the stores were out of halters in weanling sizes...except two; pink and purple. (I actually wanted black..my daughter wanted lime green) In the end, it was the lesser of two evils, rofl!

No idea what her name will be yet.

Ugh, you are disgusting LOL. I wish that we could find some good papered stock around here but there is none to be had for less than $1000.

You and hubby are a pair of lucky ducks, she's a beauty.

Did I mention that you have a very good eye for horseflesh?

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I honestly can't believe we were able to afford her. I keep looking at photos of her (since its dark here and she's in the barn), thinking I missed something. There has to be SOMETHING wrong with her. Another filly with very close to her breeding except she was blackburn top and bottom went close to $1000 and we got this filly for way less. It just makes me think there is something not right..and I missed it. And of course thats driving my husband crazy, lol.

If you see something I missed..feel free to point it out. I'll take some better photos of her tomorrow and maybe you can give me a better idea if I missed anything.

I doubt you missed anything. Sometimes all it takes is just a different color or louder markings for a price to vary greatly. It's not uncommon for a sorrel with stellar confo and great pedigree to go for a pittance but a pali with average confo and okay pedigree to go for thousands at the same sale. Just depends on who's buying.

I do look forward to more pictures of her though .

Honestly..I saw alot of that happening. The cheapest horses/foals there were bays. Sorrels brought a bit more $$. Blacks did ok, pallys were pretty good, roans were good..but the best selling colored horses were buckskins, duns, blue roans, and grullas. I saw colts going from $3000 to $50.
