The Curly Horse is a horse I am familiar with, but only through a distance. There was a girl I used to be quite good friends with who owns a solid chestnut curly gelding. She raves about him, and so my impressions of Curly horses were pretty much based on him. He however, was solid chestnut, and thus I just rather thought that all curly horses were solid colors.
They are not, as I am finding out today. This particular stud is an appaloosa colored stud.
I will admit, I first started out today with a title of "The AppaCurlyLoosa Stallion", but while searching google for images of Appys and Curlys to compare the two breeds together, discovered that Curly horses come in ALL colors - Pinto, Appy, Roan, etc. Some are quite wildly colored!
Oh wait - that means we have a rare breed, with some unusual hair coat, with... can we all say it now... KOLOR!
Some of the Curly horses I have been looking at this morning are of course, down right stunning.
Lets look at those, before our ad, shall we? The lovely mare below is a pure Curly.
Granted she's a buckskin or dun pinto but she's got a NICE shoulder, nice extension, a lovely hip, deep hocks, and a very pretty head. Her name is Painted Dunn Deal.
I also found a very, very nice looking stallion by the name of Sandmans' Magic. Here is a link to a video of him competing at First Level, Test 1. Its so refreshing to see stallions out there, being used, and given a job, isn't it?
Now, having brought forth these wonderful horses, who have owners that have given the horses jobs, are out there doing their thing, and trying to properly promote their breed, we have somewhat of a breed standard to go by.
Then - nasty 'ol craigslist comes along, and since its just a breeding cesspool for the cheapskates, the short-cutters, and the ones looking for a quick buck, you KNOW what comes is gonna make your eyes just BLEED.
Are you ready for the ad yet? Oh, by now I'm sure you are.
Ad Text: Curly Stallion - Available Stud, $200 Stud fee + $5 a day mare care - $200 (Fallon) My Curly stallion had his first baby born today. He had a Palomino Curly Stud colt with a white blanket on his but and Palomino spots. He has steel blue eyes, 4 white hooves and is a curly. I have included his picture on this ad so you can see what a nice foal he is. I've also included pictures of the dad when he is a blue roan and a red roan he changes during the year. If your interested in breeding your mare this year just give me a call.
Mr. Curly Stud is on the top, and ..... we have another medicore, KOLORED, 'rare breed' stallion being offered for stud services that has done nothing to prove himself, and is nothing spectacular. That wild coat pattern on him they say goes from Red Roan to Blue Roan... so THAT must be why he still has his balls. He's a Majikal Kolour Changing Superstallyon!
