He sure is lovely, and a good chunk of lard, you will have to do some work to get rid of that belly.

I would question your breeding decision as he is not that special, in my opinion. But he is your horse, and your opinion matters, mine does not.

I don't know enough about conformation to critique him. I love him, and his color. I am so jealous you have him.


Truth is meaningless in the absence of understanding.

I am pretty sure there are a select few cremello/palomino TB's in north america, Guaranteed Gold being one I've even heard of. You are very lucky to have such a pretty boy!! He seems to have a nice temperment/attitude, since he has a sweet expression on his face. Just get him more muscled and fit (lol I know exactly what pasture and hay can do to almost any horse).

All I pay my psychiatrist is the cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day. --unknown author

I was wondering how much his stud fee is and if you have any rules about what breed he is allowed to breed with or if they have to be registered because I have a Arabian that i want to breed but i don't have her papers :(

I think there must have been a time in the US when their books weren't as closed as they are now. Either that, or way back in yesteryear, a cream boy jumped a fence and fell in love with a beautiful TB lady
Thoroughbreds carry, albeit very rarely, the cream, rabicano, sabino, and overo genes. Much more common now that people are breeding for their color. There are quite a few dilute stallions standing in the united states and a few in Australia. It was actually introduced a long time ago, and while the gene does not exist in arabians, it was probably introduced by the same ancesters of modern Akhal Tekes. Many buckskins where registered as "duns", which doesn't exist in modern thoroughbreds or as simply "chestnuts" or "bays"

All Dilutes today can be traced back to two stallion's Milkie (registered as a chestnut, but clearly a palomino) and Glitter Please (registered as a bay, but clearly a buckskin), although clearly their are more incorrectly registered in their lines.

I can think of quite a few dilute stallions off the top of my head, Guaranteed Gold (cremello), Issues of Gold (palomino), Zillionaire (cremello), Pure White Gold (genetically a palomino Overo, but he's white), Sato (sabino palomino thoroughbred), and Milkie's Desire (palomino).

Yes, we are very excited to have him here with us. I am a huge Thoroughbred lover but I am also in love with the icing on the cake colors. We are very excited to see what this guy and my black bay sabino Thoroughbred produce.

^ I would love "a Sato" (the mares half brother) from these two :)
