Yep, thanks that's what I meant . And yes, ideally the birth date, or month, will be put with the year.

I explain a lot of horses in 'truck' terms for my bf (like gaits are gears), but for some reason the model thing still drives me up the wall.

Whenever I see an ad that calls a horse a "model", I imagine it spinning on a little turn table with a whole pile of clones around it.

I'm glad someone else is annoyed with that term. :)

ohh haha I'm not sure I've ever actually noticed that term in an ad before! I'm going to start paying attention now to see if I find any like that.

It'll stand out. The first time I noticed it, I went back the read the sentence a few times to make sure they were actually talking about a horse. I notice it every. Single. Time. Anyone says it now. Grr.

The ones I notice it on a lot are the people who try to sound like they're quality breeders to make it sound better. At least around here anyway.

I love the ads where people say "horse for sale, insert name is by so and so who is by so and so", ect. And spend the entire ad listing all the accomplishements of the various horses in a horse's bloodlines, but say nothing about the horse that's actually for sale.

Well obviously if it's got the genetics of accomplished horses, it farts rainbows. Didn't you know that?

Forrest is 15 month andulsion peruvian passo fina 1/4 horse gelding. Has had some ground work. He has had his hoof trimmed.
He is a very loveing and friendly mild manner horse.
He is in pasture in Pepekeo
The dark horse is his Momma.

This one had me laughing in no time at all! However, I am a little worried... Is it normal for a andulsion peruvian passo fina 1/4 horse to have one hoof?

I'm sure it would have to have wonderful balance. Or it could always just role around.
