IF I had the money and I was looking for a stock horse I would buy any of those guys. They all have really nice color and confirmation. You pay big $$ to get good horses from a good breeder. Its not that much considering what a stud fee (from a top producer) and mare care might cost. My friend thought I paid too much for my $750 weanling. Well around here babies don't usually go under $700-500, unless you pull one from the auction.

I have a gelding coming seven that I bought from them, he's got the same type of mind you were talking about. This is the only one I've had from them but I sure like him, that's why I want another.

Horses are no different than anything else. You get what you pay for. I've been "lucky" to have some really great horses. The reason my horses are better than the next guys horses is that I don't mind paying top dollar for a well bred horse.

Oh, my, goodness. If I wasn't pregnant right now I would totally be calling them up and flying out to see this guy. I'm not even a paint person (and I show Buckskin circuit) but his color is AMAZING.

I know I told my DH (dear husband) that if we had the room he'd be mine. Could you imagine the heads he'd turn?

How well doyou think a Freisian would do in NCHA competition?

There's nothing like the Rockies in the springtime... Nothing like the freedom in the air... And there ain't nothing better than draggin calves to the fire and there's nothing like the smell of burning hair. -Brenn Hill

That's what people say about my step-dad's cremello stallion. He's a sweet boy though.

That made me laugh to death.

Although I've seen TBs working absolutely amazingly in team penning (was the best team out of like 100 people most with QHs). NOT SAYING it's same as cutting, just was something I was pretty amazed with.

Yes, but cremellos are awesome. They are the exception to the blue eyed rule.
