  1. Horse Breeding
    So, as some of you may know, I recently got a new horse. He's an 8 year old thoroughbred gelding. I've named him Samual (Sam). Now, this boy was never raced, but he did live on a race track for the first few years of his life. So he is registered under the name Kings Gold Ruler. I don't know a...
  2. Horse Colors and Genetics
    I have owned Spencer for almost 5 years now and have always called him a chestnut (papers say that too). However, throughout the years I have been around many different chestnuts and none of them seem to look similar to him. I am almost certain he is a red dun, because of the dorsal stripe that...
  3. Horse Talk
    Hello, I was wondering if anyone on the forums might be able to guess what colour this little fellow might turn out to be. I'm not bothered by colour, but I am really curious :'D ** ALSO, please excuse his poor condition. I bought him as a rescue as his previous owner had too many horses and...

    Was just wondering as our newest addition is a little flaxen chestnut with roan fading out of his coat. We believe he'll mature as a solid chestnut with the flaxen mane and tail, as the roan is almost invisible now. His full sister is a solid chestnut and his half sister is a bay roan... So...

    I currently ride a chestnut thoroughbreed named Lucas. With show season approaching I wanted to think of a unique show name for him. I like having the show name kind of match with the barn name. I have thought about using Luke (so it matched his name) instead of look for names like: Made ya...

    Native Silver is a 6 year old OTTB mare. Raced 4 times, won once. She was bought out of a kill pen in Michigan, and ended up with me a few years later. I'm looking at using her for barrel racing, because she's only 14.3-15 hands. http://www.pedigreequery.com/native+silver3 Any critique on her...

  9. Horse Colors and Genetics
    I decided to clip my yearling mini filly and she clipped out grey. She is chestnut colored otherwise with a flaxen mane and tail. Her mother is a grey and her father is a bay with a possible grey sire. Does this mean she is a silver bay and has gotten the silver gene?
  10. Horse Colors and Genetics
    I've had much debate over the colour of my horse - people tell me he is chestnut, liver chestnut, flaxen chestnut and some people say he is bay; another even said that it has been died that colour :lol: I'm leaning towards liver chestnut, but all posts I've read about liver chestnut say the...
  11. Horse Show Clothing
    I have a chestnut. And I want to get a new outfit for this year. I want to get colored chaps, so black is not really and option. Lighter colors like white and sand are also not really an option because knowing me I would get the outfit dirty within a couple of seconds!! I am also trying to avoid...

    We are considering purchasing a Chestnut Gelding for our daughter. Right now his name is Masterpiece. She doesn't like his current name. She wants something elegant and refine. He has a blaze and two socks. He is very sweet and well mannered. A truly great horse. Any suggestions? She...

    I'm looking for general opinions on tack color for my gelding. He lightens (more red) in the summer and darkens (almost liver chestnut color) in the winter. I've taken a peek at the hobby horse color chart, but am more interested in black, light oil, dark oil, etc. tack color choices :) Any...

  20. Horse Grooming
    Okay, so I bought a liver chestnut tail extension for my horse. Grew out of that horse, and got a chestnut QH. The tail is only used TWICE, but now does not match my new horse :? Is it possible to dye the hair? It is a real horse hair switch if that helps.
