What are his bloodlines. I would also get a better picture cause right now he's nowhere near stallion quality with that photo. How do you know he will produce a chocolate baby? Has he been DNA'd to be sure he doesn't carry the red gene?

Macslady, The pic is fine. If someone wanted him they can come and see him in person. He is red gene neg. He is double homozygous His sire is Sudden Impact and his dam is rocky knoll's cheeka. You can go the rmhorse.com and look up both of their pedigree's from this site. Or go to Vanbert Farms and see the Sire's pic. Are you interested or are you just trying to give a person a hard time. Because try buying a Registered Rocky Mountain for under $2000.00

I agree with Macslady, that picture is really bad. If people are to go according to the picture your colt is ROACHBACKED which would turn just about anyone off with any horse knowledge. It sounds like your trying to sell him off the basis that he could throw color in which that is no basis for keeping him stud. I'm assuming he's trying to move around from they way his legs look, either that or he's very camped under. Try to get a picture from the side standing square. With a picture like that, his build is no where near something possibly keeping stud. I don't know the prices on RMH but unless your hoping to seriously jeopardize the market for them I would geld him asap before he gets studdy.

I'm sure his is nicely bred. I agree that this is an unflattering photo. My neck has a "crick" in it from trying to look at it. Definitely get a photo of him groomed up and standing better. It would really help show people how nice he probably is.

Not to be nasty, but I agree with Macslady, who I think was just trying to be helpful. That's not a great conformation pic, and if you're looking to market this colt as a stallion prospect it's kind of important to show off all of his positive qualities. Especially if you want to get someone interested enough to come see him. I would get one of him square from the side standing on even ground, one from the rear, and one from the front. I work on a Rocky farm here in Indy and I can tell you that with the horse industry in the toilet like it is, it's pretty common to see even Rockys going for under $2000. There are 40 listed on dreamhorse right now between $300-2000.

Did you have him tested only for the red gene or did you also have him tested for homozygous silver dapple? Even with two silver dapple parents he could still only have one copy of the gene. Has he been tested for ASD? If so I would include that in your ad as well. I am not saying he isn't stud quality, as I said you can't tell from that one pic. Just offering some advice on ways to market him better.

Not trying to give a hard time, it's just people don't like to turn sideways to view a picture. I was just trying to do a neighborly heads up. The more info you give the more people who would be interested. But by your last line now who is being sarcastic. OK I'll take the bait.

1. VBF Call Me the Breeze gelding - purchased as a 2 year old, registered RMH, sire Venture's Black Fury and dam Brandy's Miss Priss. Purchased for $500

2. Four Stars Black Pearl mare - purchased as a 4 year old, registered RMH, sire Desparado's Apache Chieftan, dam Greased Lighting. Purchased for $1000

3. Smokin' Sam now gelding - Breeding papers - purchased as a yearling, RMH, sire Sam I Am, Dam - Phoebe. Purchased for $600. This boy is a chocolate with flaxen mane and tail. We had considered keeping him as a stud, but with the problems running in the chocolate lines due to poor breeding practices creating ASD, seizures and strokes and insulin resistance we decided to leave it to the pros like VanBert and not become backyard breeders. Sorry, it just irks me when people get snippy when someone tries to help. You can see in another post where he showed the horse they had in a much better representation that I praised the animal. Thanks all, I am done.

Let's see all three were under $1000 and under, and I have papers in hand for all 3

Sorry Macslady, I will try to post a better pic tonight. Sounds like I need to lower my price.

Not necessarily. It depends a lot on the area you are in. We live in Northern Illinois and our entire horse market is in the toilet. Registered horses that used to sell for $5000 and up with show points under their belt are selling for $1500.

Gaiteds just aren't valued up here much because this is the land of the Quarter horse. I would try him for a while at your price, you can always add or best offer on the end.

Have you dealt with stallions before?

I have had a couple in the past when I was younger. Got out of the horse business for a few years and done some research on these rocky's and I wanted to try them out. Just in a bad mood this morning Macslady, I've had a bad day.
