    I looked at ALL of his photos on his web page, I also looked at his videos. I am still not convinced.

    I can't see the photo you linked to, but here are some excellent chestnut countershading...

    I agree.

    A stripe down the back is NOT indisputible evidence for dun. Countershading is truly amazing at putting stripes down backs. It can even put zebra stripes on the legs, bars on the...

    I don't see how dun is possible for the colt's sire. There is an offspring gallery of 7 or so foals on his page and not a single one looks like a dun. Statistically speaking if the sire is truly a...

    Here is a link to a transcript of the email conversation I had with Dr. Ramsey back in November of 2012. You probably have to join the group to see it. Unfortunately I don't have it saved anywhere...

    It is very rare for ASD to affect vision, even amongst homozygous silvers. I spoke to Dr. David Ramsey about this topic personally. He has examined over 2300 silver Rocky Mountain horses, of those...

    Agreed. They are just... ODD!

    Without knowing either parent's agouti status, here are the probabilities:

    35.16% - Buckskin
    35.16% - Bay or Brown
    12.50% - Palomino
    12.50% - Chestnut
    2.34% - Smoky Black
    2.34%...

    Some of the traits noticed somewhat consistently on red-based silvers are purplish skin as a foal, a higher than normal tendency towards flaxen in the mane and tail, exceptionally light overall coat...

    I realize this is a different species, but the composition of the mare's udder and the human breast are so similar they often have similar afflictions. This type of thing is not unheard of among...

    I once gave some fertilized hatching eggs to a friend that had a broody hen. I forgot to tell my friend to mark the eggs. I gave her six eggs and by the time the hatch started the hen had 15 under...

    Thank you! During my research I did see some Aussie girths with that long strap. I figured I could always just cut it off if the one I'm considering came with it. I don't think it is in such a spot...
  12. Any reason I shouldn't use an Australian girth with an A/P saddle?

    I have my heart set on an adjustable leather girth for use with multiple horses, some of which are still growing. So far the best quality/price I can find comes in the form of a girth that is...

    I read that the hanging extra-fine haynets were created for the purpose of feeding haylage which is pretty common practice overseas. Shire's manufactures some of them in different sizes.

    Pearl exists in AQHA and APHA horses, as JB mentioned. Both of those breeds have Spanish roots so it makes sense that it would exist there.

    Pearl is a recessive gene, which means that a...

    Those of you that are hinting to the fact that you might have a suitable saddle for sale - please PM me with the details! Thanks so much for all the thoughtful responses!

    Thank you! I will check out that model. It sounds promising!

    I have purchased from Trumbull Mountain before. She is great to work with. I may go ahead and reach out to her for advice too.

    I...

    I am in Des Moines, Iowa. I'm not sure what shipping would run but I would be interested in finding out more! Do you know what the seat size is? I need an 18".
  18. Does it exist? Help me find the perfect saddle.

    It seems like every saddle have ever tried meets one or a couple of these criteria - I'm looking for a saddle that meets them all.

    I'll get right to the point. This is what I need:

    Every rider's dream. A 20H horse with a reverse gear. Wonder if her transmission was recently flushed?

    Thank you! That colt is such a cool guy. Really laid back and HUGE to boot. He is the spitting image of his mother - who is my favorite riding horse.

    Awesome! I will check out your page when I get home. (FB is blocked for me right now.)

    Cream and silver have an interesting effect on each other. For the most part cream tends to mute silver's...

    FatCat, silver does exist in several non-gaited horse breeds although silver lines are rare.

    To date it has been confirmed in American Paints, Quarter Horses, Morgans, Saddlebreds, Gypsy Vanners...

    FWIW, I think the ID cross filly in the ad is a brown silver - not a black silver. Can't tell what the dam is based off of the pics though.

    OOOOH BOY! Did I get excited when I saw the mare's pedigree!

    Definitely DEFINITELY test the mare for silver. She descends from an almost 100% certain (highly suspected but not yet confirmed by...
