Will let you know, when I do, but I haven't heard back, yet.  So we'll see.   I can keep dreaming and window shopping, though.

Make sure they are really "A" sized.  Many people keep their "A" papers for breeding mares to smaller stallions, for their mare that are REALLY OVER 34" 

Crossing my fingers and praying for you!   ;pray

Well, I told her if anything was close to 34" to let me know, as that wouldn't be too small for Topper at 35.75".  2" wouldn't scare me too much.

No, that's a quite acceptable difference.  He's not a bulky stallion, he's quite well put together and not the heavy boned style!

Took a few pictures this morning, but they weren't overly cooperative, so got lots of dark shadowed pictures.   Better ones of Spotty and they are posted to his thread, he's not as shy as Bliss.
Maybe it's just me, and in this picture they are standing on a slope, but I'm pretty sure Spotty is a couple inches taller than Bliss.

 Yep, she's a pretty one.

What color is she?  Are you going to have to test her to find out?

Pretty sure she is silver buckskin.

It's so funny how they are different. 


I didn't see "Kreature" as a "new foal" - he was about 3 months old when we bought Bell w/ him at her side and his coloration was sooo different...

Before his bath, the 22nd of Sept (day after arriving at home from IA) -



After his bath, wet -



In March 2010 (about 9 months old) -



He was body clipped in 8-10 April, then this taken 27 April - 2010 -



back in winter coat - about 18 months of age -



Mature pic, not quite shed off completely - at 5.5 yrs old -



I know that I put "palomino" on his original registration application BEFORE having his dam color tested.  Then it was driving me crazy and when he was gelded, before we sent in the certificate for his castration to update his papers, I had both he and his dam color tested, even though we'd already sold him.  Turns out his sire carries at least one bay gene (he's a cremello - but not tested) - Bell is heterozygous black, homozygous silver - and Kreature carries 1 gene for each color, LOL...  EeAaCRnZn.  So now we officially know he is a silver buckskin, LOL.


Wish I had pics of Taff when she was a foal.  Pretty sure she is a silver buckskin as well.  She is a Bell's granddaughter.

The picture of him standing with sursingle and lines, he looks remarkably like Tana, but Tana is silver bay dun (no cream, had her tested, as we thought palomino and registered as such as a foal - posted pics of her and a few people said no she's silver bay, but darnedest silver bay coloration I'd ever seen; but add in dun and appy and you get Tana).
Tana tested EE, Aa, no cream (silver and dun proven by her color and grulla colt).   
Will also attach a picture of her dorsal, which is quite light.  Combining silver, dun and appy really can change the color.

I just LOVE the color genetics!!

My guess is silver buckskin, too.

I'll see if I can get a picture or two this afternoon, but as it's been raining and Shayne can't hay this morning, I got his help to trim the babies hooves.  What a rodeo!  Even though I've been picking up their hooves, I haven't started their halter training, so needed his help to hold the babies while I attempted trimming.  I think they might need a bit more, but it was enough stress for each today. 
I was pooped after our baby rodeo and trimming Tana, too; so pics later, I hope.
