Well...I bought a stud colt!

He's a yearling Tennessee Walker x Missouri Fox Trotter. He was an accident baby, the breeders aren't some backyard nutters, but when a young stud colt gets in with a yearling mare...about a year later somethings bound to pop out.

His momma is a black/white Tobiano, and the daddy was a graying black. The lil' dude himself is a black/white graying Tobiano, cute as a button. He'll be BIG too.

Get this:
Haltered once or twice
Never really messed with at all
Was really feeling his oats today, just bouncing all over the place
Yearling, with testicles (will be snipped)

Pros:
Beautiful build, dainty head, lovely neck, overall just really nice. A little downhill at the moment, but he'll grow into it (it's not a fault, his front just hasn't caught up with his hind). He's got the gangly yearling look.
100% handleable. I was all over him today, checking to see if both testicles has descended (he wasn't tied, mind you). All over his back/butt/legs/head.
Picks up his feet, didn't hold them long, but he did pick 'em up
Both parents papered and quite lovely themselves.
Gaits at liberty
He haltered and lead. I just put it on him (no fuss). He leads horribly though
Stood for rope tossing, backed him, flexed both sides, and yielded.

Cons:
Still a stud, will have to geld this fall
Not papered, but I may be able to get some papers on him
Never been in a trailer
Only a yearling, so it'll be two to three years before any riding
Don't know if he stands tied, bathes, or fly sprays yet
Mouthy


They have some really nice, papered, geldings for sale as well. But this little guy really caught my eye. I think he'll really mature big and beautiful, plus his personality is just awesome. Of course I left my camera at home...so I have no pictures!

I got some fence fixing to do, but I put the down payment on him so I'm hoping to bring him out soon. Pretty happy with him, I spent a couple hours telling myself 'English horses, english horses.....ENGLISH HORSES....'

Well, that didn't work out so well :roll:

Off to find registries!

Exciting!! And since he will be snipped, you won't have to change your screen name ;)

My favorite trait that you listed..."Gaits at Liberty"

This is great! I think you will have yourself a great little riding horse when he is all done growing!

Good luck with him...can't wait to see pictures! Sounds like a stunner!

I'm still considering the in-utero foal. I do have plenty of pasture (12 more or less acres) and all together I'd have four horses again. Loki, Divo, accident boy, and possibly unborn. It's still kinda 'Should I or Should I Not', I'm going to wait until Baby's off to her new home before inquiring further about height and what not. That way if I like it, I can put the down payment on it pronto.

I can't wait to GET pictures! When I saw him for the first time yesterday he was charging all over the place, tail up like an Arab, head in the air and just strutting his stuff like mad. One of their mares is in heat (he most defiantly cannot get to her, no worries!) so that's probably what made him spazz. The owner was all "I've NEVER seen him like that before! He's usually just calm and sweet!"
Was pretty fun to watch though, shows that he's got a little spunk in him.

LOL! Once he's snipped, I'll have to change it to 'threegeldings' instead of just two!
