This lovely boy is now mine. He was bred by Rainbow's End Farm and is currently in Colorado with the wonderful person who made this all possible. He is being trained to ride and drive, he's registered in the Spanish Mustang Registry and American Heritage Horse Association (I have plans to register him in The Spanish Barb Horse Association also). I'm going to work with this boy to promote the breed in every venue we can.
He is homozygous black (EE), perlino (Aa CrCr) sabino (SB1n) and probably dun (testing soon).
Thanks everyone I'm over the moon! I can't believe I was given this opportunity. I'm so grateful.
CLA - I know he's freshly bathed in the top two photos, but it's going to be nuts keeping his pale butt clean. He's registered as a Spanish Mustang and more accurately a Spanish Barb, there are different registries but same bloodlines (mostly) I prefer to call them Spanish Barbs as it more accurately reflects their breeding, no BLM horses in this boy's pedigree!
Flytobecat - I am planning to breed him to my mare at some point, she's in Ohio, he's in Colorado, eventually all of us are moving to the Pacific Northwest, but even then I want to work with him and do some more training/promotion/showing before breeding. Though he does have 3 commissioned breedings for 2015 under contract.
Northern - don't worry his halter is only on when he's being worked with. He's with people I completely trust. Also he has a stall with a run so he's always close. My mare never has her halter on unless I'm working with her too they're both easy to catch. Happy to work.
Right now he's in Colorado and I'm in Ohio so until then he's going to get lots of care, love and training until I can get him home. Posted via Mobile Device
