FFFS: The Cremello Stud!

I have ads now! Thank you so much everyone! 

Lets jump right in, shall we? 

MAKE AN OFFER! Thunder Head is coming 3 year old stallion who will be expectin his first foal as of 2011. He has not had any training other than leading, and trailering. He is a very gentle stallion with a very mellow personality. He is never rough with the mares and he is pastured with another stallion so you can see how dosile he is. Built very well, with a big round rump and wide chest he should mature between 15 and 16 hands. With his pedigree and color he will make babies worth $$$. Email for pictures. 

This sounds so promising, doesn't it? Do we really need to see the pictures of this one? 

AQHA cremello stallion, barely 3, bred already, barely halterbroke, and his greatest claim to fame is he goes in a trailer and gets along with another stallion. 

Let me jump right ON THAT!!! Right? 

Ok, we all know that the best place in the world to sell your fugly, dirty, un-broke colored baby stallion is right next to the...

What the hell is that thing? Its got hay in it - or what once WAS hay - now it looks dried out and has as much nutritional value as cardboard. Some sort of metal/iron contraption that is made to do... something. 

Either way it makes a GREAT hay rack, doesn't it!? *insert dripping sarcasm here*

And - I'm hoping its just the picture - but is it just me or is his front legs toed out some? That off side front leg is at a really weird angle for the way he's standing - he's about as far from 'squared up' as a trapezoid, but that hoof definitely ain't straight forward. 

Its got a funky semi-not-quite-so-rare-anymore color on him. Cremellos are becoming more and more common only because people have figured out what genetics create them. The sad part, just like every other 'color' thats rare or dilute, people breed just for the color and forget things like straight legs! We don't need no stinkin' straight legs! Who really cares if their horse can't walk for 4 hours without going lame on soft arena ground! 

He's purrrrrrrrttyyyyyyyyyyy.

Most of the fugly stallions I have posted on here would make cute geldings. This guy? I can't even bring myself to say cute! He's depressed, his head shot shows that in his eye, needs some TLC, a bath, and some decent quality hay, and he might actually be a pretty sturdy mount. 

But not in the condition he's in now!

Thanks Nancy!


  1. dilute, hideozygous, factor this, and there you have it...

    Makes me reconsider whether to bother having my little guy tested for everything. It has been recommended by those int eh know to test him for silver, tobiano, red & roan... don't really care what the odds are of which colors he produces and if mare owners are that obsessed over color- maybe their mare needs to go somewhere else?

  2. Heh.... they aren't even demonstrating his MAD LEADING SKILLZ.

    Lazylazylazylazylazy.... Beyond the obvious (geld him & start him ASAP), LAZY sellers annoy me SO MUCH. Good marketing isn't rocket surgery.

    Then again, I see people wearing shorts to the Symphony, so ....

  3. "... he will make babies worth $$$"

    And his ad sales "MAKE OFFER?" So, uh, if his babies are worth big $, why isn't he again?

    Garsh.. Yes, his front end toes out. This boy needs to be a gelding.
