Well..I may have rubbed off on my husband
We were at a production sale this weekend. I've been drooling over this guys horses for 2 years. As we're walking around looking at all the foals, my husband and I earmarked the ones we wanted to watch. My husband picked out a little grulla filly as his favorite..and he ended up buying her.
She's got some great breeding in her background. She goes back to Poco Bueno and Blackburn.
Here is her pedigree: All Breed Pedigree Query=
I am just amazed at her. She came to us straight off the pasture. Never been handled. When we went to unload her, we were so surprised to find that she was pretty outgoing and within 10 minutes we had a halter on her, within 20 minutes she was leading around and allowing us to touch her about anywhere.
I have some really crappy photos. Will get some new ones tomorrow.
A couple of my cell phone:
And some horrible ones off my nikon. (had the wrong lens on as well.)<sigh> Hate the green eye, but don't know how to get rid of it. :(
So..what do you think of her?
Cutie! Aren't you the one with the filly Calamity? Someone was asking about hernia on here and I was telling them about her.
Yep. She's mine. :)
You find the best colored halters for your babies- all so vibrant and different. What are you going to call this little one?
No idea what her name will be yet.
Ugh, you are disgusting LOL. I wish that we could find some good papered stock around here but there is none to be had for less than $1000.
You and hubby are a pair of lucky ducks, she's a beauty.
Did I mention that you have a very good eye for horseflesh?
If you see something I missed..feel free to point it out. I'll take some better photos of her tomorrow and maybe you can give me a better idea if I missed anything.
I doubt you missed anything. Sometimes all it takes is just a different color or louder markings for a price to vary greatly. It's not uncommon for a sorrel with stellar confo and great pedigree to go for a pittance but a pali with average confo and okay pedigree to go for thousands at the same sale. Just depends on who's buying.
I do look forward to more pictures of her though :D.
why!? Why?!? WHY!?! are you so dang lucky! i need to maybe some spend some time around you and your luck will rub off on me lol i am in need of a weanling but i can't find any reasonably priced decent conformed ones. she's very gorgeous! as are all your babies you get so lucky with confo, personality and color!
