What do you think of my new cremello gelding?????

Chrome arrived today! he's a 7yo APHA gelding I just got in from KY. He's absolutely divine to work with! 14.3hh. Broke western but I'm going to see if I can't convert him to English moo-wahahaha! If not I'm going to have to get a western saddle and learn.

He's in dire need of a bath, and please ignore my messy barn. It's normally pretty tidy and clean but with the sun out it was grand central station today!

Anyway - here he is - let me know what you think!
Here are some pics of him in the summer : What is cremello?

Yeh... things were so hectic and busy at the barn trying to get decent shots were difficult. Tomorrow when it's quieter (and hopefully still sun-shiney) I'll get him outside for some better confo shots.

I don't have a critique, but I think he's really cute! I love cremellos! As for what it is, it's basically a double palomino.

And as for the sunburn thing, I think it's an individual horse thing, the one we had never sunburned or had any issue because of her color. At first I just assumed it was a myth, but I have seen pics of other cremellos that would squint in the sun like it bothered their eyes (your's isn't squinting in the summer pics, so it may not be a problem for him).

Then I've also had people tell me they sold their paint(s) because they'd burn so bad on their bodies they couldn't ride them, I've never had a horse (of any color) burn anywhere but their faces (and it can be just as bad w/ a large blaze). If he does have a blaze it may need sunscrean, but otherwise I'd wait and see if the sun is an issue for him.

Thanks for all the info!!! He has a blaze but it doesn't look like it goes all the way to his muzzle.

He sure does seem cute lol.

LOL! Yeh he most definitely is a fluffy pony. And he loves hugs! Found that out already!

I think his angles are way off on his fronts, I'm hoping when the farrier comes out next week she can get started on him. And his neck may be a touch short, but all in all, he's a nice little guy.
