Professional horse breeders breed for high quality young stock that they can sell on to people looking for competition prospects. Not everyone that breeds keeps the horses once they're born and problem of overpopulation only comes into play from breeding when people breed just to breed without taking into consideration the market, what people are looking for, crossing bloodlines and breeds to IMPROVE the breed(s) and/or the horse industry and only breeding enough to fill the need and that they can reasonably sell or keep.

Thanks nittany!

It is not a case of me not being able to "keep them" (and FWIW - I am not the breeder of this filly. A friend of mine is who had a very bad car accident several years ago and the physical issues are starting to catch up with her now, plus she just got married and the family and the doctors told her that she HAS to downsize or she is going to find herself in a wheelchair sooner rather than later). It was win/win for everyone - she had one less horse on the property to look after, I got a filly that I have loved since the day she was born, the new owner has a fabulous filly that is going to be her new dressage partner in a few years time, I get one more Guaranteed Gold baby out there in the show world, that will be showing on someone else's dime and not mine, it frees up one more stall for me to get another nice mare in to breed to either Guaranteed Gold or Winner and get one more offspring of theirs out there, and on and on it goes

I dont have unlimited funds nor do I have unlimited stalls. For one more to come in, one has to go out especially now as it appears that I may well be hanging onto the Four Feet of Snow colt for the next few years at least. In 2012 if all goes well, I am expecting 4 foals so I MUST market and sell them in order to maintain that flow and have cash coming in to look after them all.

Make sense?!

You keeping him to breed or because of something else? He looked cute in the video you put up of Eva and him playing in the snow.

Ive always loved the Frosty (Four Feet of Snow) colt and especially once his full brother died a few months back, I really wanted one to hang onto for a bit and promote from the very beginning. Pretty well like I did with the Faux Finish mare - his full sister

So - the plan is to hang onto him now for the forseeable future, show him a bit, get him backed, get him approved and then go from there. However as luck would have it, Ive had a serious enquiry from Thailand of all places who have been seriously developing their breeding program over the last decade. While it would be a neat sale for me, its going to do exactly diddley squat for me in the Sport Horse breeding world and the North American breeding scene, to have him go to Thailand. Another offer on the table is from Cuba for him but same thing with selling him there. Lovely sale for me, somewhat of a feather in my cap to say Ive sold something to that part of the world, but long term it does me exactly "0" worth of good ...

Yea I hear you. I have a friend that hit the same predicament. If you keep him and campaign him he will only increase in worth so if you can then I would do that. Post more pics and info on him! I'm in major baby fever. I think I'm going to let a local TB breeder break my mare's maiden this spring. =)

Here you go - here are a few pictures I took of him last week in a veritable blizzard so they are pretty dull looking. Plus with his winter coat being almost white, its pretty hard to tell that he's palomino and white at all!

These are at 8 months of age:



and:



I am REALLY liking this colt a lot as a future stallion prospect and with him being dual registered with APHA as a Paint, that also opens a lot of different doors for him as well

Nittany...I am close to TC's farm, or at least within close driving distance...want to go splits on stealing him? LOL

True--Do you blanket the babies as well? He doesnt look like he has much of a coat, which is surprising considering where we live. (Im an hour north of you)

Wait til he grows up then we can "borrow" him for a year and he can play with our mares for a while =P What's his breeding TC? Is he a full TB? Can't wait to see him shed out this summer!

Hi Velvet!

The only one that is blanketed around here is Winner and thats because he arrived thin, he's older and arthritic and I figured I needed to help him out as best I could. Everyone else just grows thick *plush* coats like stuffed toys and thats it ...

Frosty is a full TB and is a full brother to Faux Finish - shown at 2 years of age:



Remember My Name - also shown at 2 years of age:



TCF Nightlight - shown as a yearling:




and here are a few pictures of him as a baby with his palomino coat really noticeable!










I am really thinking that he might be the nicest full sibling yet ...

What was your address again in case his stall is empty one day?!

LOL. I wish I could have him, but I am poor. Sad.

I ADORE his name though. Fits Frosty really well.
