    But , what they lack for in mane and color , they have more then made up for in intelligence and temperment.

    So, I would say, I have the horse I always wanted, both of them!
    You can't ride color, or manes!

    ^^Too funny!! I always thought Paints, and Appys were pretty and what not, just never wanted one as my own. LOL


    As far as personality goes though, he is the horse I've always wanted and more!! Don't get me wrong, we have our days where, like my husband, haha, Im just annoyed beyond all belief, but majority of the time, I couldnt be happier with him.


    But like many of you have always said, you can't ride color! And that is one of the reasons why I didnt pass up on my guy, his color, and markings werent my favorite, but I wasnt going to overlook him because of that

    I think the ones you don't expect to get are the best ones. I never thought my little colt would be such a great horse. And to be the horse I always wanted to boot! Epic!

    Absolutely true! But I did have to give up the fantasy of luxurious thick manes, and light colored horses always show any dirt. But, I do laugh after they roll in the mud. From a distance they look like lovely Buckskins!

    Ever since I was little and absolutely horse crazy, I had a list of what I wanted for a horse:
    1. Dutch Warmblood
    2. Dappled Grey
    3. Gelding
    4. Must be ober 16.1hh
    5. Jumps and does Dressage
    5. His name would be Firework (I was obsessed over that name haha)

    Whenever anybody would ask me what horse I would buy when I'm older, I described my "Firework" horse haha...and they told me I was crazy because I could never afford a horse that nice.

    Well I have been lucky enough to both lease a grey Dutch Warmblood mare (Tannis) and own my dappled grey Dutch Warmblood gelding Robbie, who is exactly like my dream horse when I was little. :)

    Wow, tough question csim. I've had so many over the years, most lived up to my expectations, a few that didn't.

    Growing up in a QH family that rode working western disciplines (though I also rode hunt seat & jumped our QHs), I always wanted to go against the grain and have a warmblood. I'm at the point in my life now that I made the frivolous choice to get myself one. I justified it to my hubby with "she'll be great for beginner kids to learn to canter on" but really it was just my own selfish wish I'm having so much fun with her that I am really considering hauling her to a few jumper shows this summer. She's got everything I wanted, she's a gentle giant (she adores my 6 yr old daughter), has a huge trot, smooth as glass canter and a can-do attitude. She's yet to tell me no to anything asked. The only complaint I have about her is that she is a poor excuse for a trail horse....even at 19, she's still got a pretty agile snort & scoot

    I'll shoot ya in the butt with a paint ball Did I mention she's also my favorite color? My best friend's little girl calls her 'Black Beauty'.

    I do have a handful of bays, I'd be a little less sad if you stole one of them

    Well, I was just thinking about this earlier today at the barn. I was looking at a few of the other horses, thinking to myself, color wise, that's what I wanted. LOL

    But I learned quite a few years ago from a close friend that color/markings is the last thing you need to worry about when getting a horse. She loved dappled grey TB mare's, she ended up with a chestnut Morgan gelding, and after he passed away, she got yet another chestnut Morgan gelding!!

    I know when I was getting into the market a year ago, a lot of people, including many of my friends thought that I was interested in Rodeo due to his markings, but like I said, markings were my least favorite part of him. And Im hoping that he's not too flashy when I go out on group rides, and eventually low level shows LOL


    Thanks for the reply!! Funny how you can be into breed, or discipine for so long, but want to try something else I've gone almost all Western! Lol, although I am planning on riding Rodeo both when that time comes
