So...I broke the news to hubby today that we have a new mare
And I could have hugged him! :-)

He said since he still has time off work owing to him, do I want him to go and get her instead of me juggling it and trying to look after the horses at home?!

Now - you have to know that hubby is VERY non horsey. I mean not in any way shape or form does he have anything to do with them unless asked, or maintenance kinds of things, so instead of getting royally ticked off that I went and bought another mare, he offered to go and get her instead so it didnt impact my day at all

I dont know how many photo's I will be able to post of her until spring gets here and she actually sheds her coat out. Right now she will simply look "dirty white" and thats it. And very very fluffy ...

She was bought 100% specifically to breed to Guaranteed Gold to carry on the tradition started with Puchi Trap and I am crossing my fingers that with very much the same bloodlines to work with, I will be able to replicate the types and looks of foals that Puchi Trap produces for me ...

I saw her many many years ago and really liked what I saw of her then and this if the ONLY picture that I actually have of her and of course you cannot tell anything from it other than her colour / markings and thats it

Her name is Puchi Doll - she is out of Batawa Lady and by Puchilingui himself and is dual registered with both the Jockey Club and APHA - the same as Puchi Trap is.

I am curious what colour pattern you all think she might be? Obviously bay, but with that almost all white face and what appears to be a completely white tail - Dominant White??? Splash??? Or can you have a combination of both of those patterns?

And I am really curious about her actual colour. I have NEVER seen a bay this light, unless she has a whack of white hairs through her base coat colour making it look very very light and washed out looking. And then what appears to be a bunch of Bend Or type spots??? But Ive never seen them on a bay coat - only chestnut!

She is definately very different looking and I will really look forward to seeing what she produces with GG!

With the passing of Jerry Tyler, his family called and said that Jerry would very much have wanted me to have this mare as she was very special to him. I am really honored to be getting her ...

The paperwork has been sent in but with Christmas and then New Year's Im sure there will be some delay but I would anticipate getting her here sometime in mid January - depending on weather and driving conditions as well

Jerry's daughter is also looking to see if there are some summer pictures of her that she can send me as well. If so - I will post them once I get them

So - curious what you all think of her colouring and markings?!

You'll have to get someone who knows color genetics better but i think she's very neat looking! Love the markings

She looks like a strawberry roan to me. Very unique!

She's so pretty! Not sure of color, that's a tough one.

She looks like a Sabino to me, with added Splash and possibly Rabicano.

Agreed. :)

She's gorgeous. :D

Wow... I'd say she's rabicano, but that's fairly obvious I suppose :3 She's absolutely beautiful though!!!

tbstorm 12-18-2010 05:17 PM

it is a tough one but i think any of the above could be right.... but ohhh is she B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!!!!

FeatheredFeet 12-18-2010 05:25 PM

Are either of her parents a true Roan? Of not, then she would not be roan. The roaning through her coat, would probably be a sabino of some kind. Only Sabino1 can be tested for at the moment, but it is known, that there are tons of other types. Many consider DW and sabino the same thing.


smrobs 12-18-2010 06:09 PM

Wow, what a unique color. I would also guess Sabino with heavy roaning. I don't suppose dun is a common or possible color with her breeding is it?

I can't wait for some more pictures of her (dirty white looking or not :wink:) and I hope she can produce some foals the same quality as what you were getting out of PT. I will also be anxiously awaiting the first foal of hers by GG. :D
