People keep breeding them up. I think it's a mistake with the "drum horse" breed coming about. I like 'em small though. My girl's only gonna make 13hh and we plan to stay in that range or even go smaller. The UK loves the "littles."

no kidding.. for 11k you can get a real good adult gypsy in this market.. and how do they know she is a 100% color producer if she is a yearling.. that makes no sense to me

Make it idiot proof and someone will make a better idiot.

It was the actual title "HUGE WILD MARKED WITH LOTS OF BLACK & BLUE EYES."
I know what they mean, but it made me laugh to see advertised a horse "with lots of black and blue eyes."
lol
Surely that could have been worded better. :)

Genetic testing. Also, ink spots is almost 100% guarantee for a homozygous for tobiano horse.

well I kinda figured that but I wouldnt expect someone who writes a poor craigslist ad asking 11k for a oversized yearling would pay for genetic testing.. I could be wrong.. but something gave me that idea

There doesn't actually seem to be any correlation between inkspots and homozygousity with tobiano. Also, a homozygous tobiano is not a guarantee of colour producing. They have a guarantee of passing on a tobiano gene, but there is lots of other stuff going on. Tobiano can minimally express as little as a single white spot on a hind leg - including in homozygous horses.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

It actually said in the ad that she had her color DNA done and she was Ee, TT. I am surprised at how much they are asking. She is really not worth that much. She's as average as they come in my opinion.

Also, she's not 15.2hh yet. It says in the ad that think she'll make 15.2hh. I don't know why they put on her "current height." Then again I don't understand much from these people.

I suppose that is true, but when you have a lineage of loud colored horses, I wouldn't expect TT to express so minimally. Is there a correlation between patterns and lineage? And minimally colored is still colored.
