    Default For the colour crowd

    A white TB does something other than stand around and look pretty.

    Of course this horse was bred to do something, the colour was a complete accident.

    Is he actually a white, max sabino, or is he just a gray?

    The horse looks to have the pink skin of a max sabino and the fairly even white coloration of a max sabino.

    Why the snark? Sounds like someone trying to pick a fight.

    Interesting the sire is a gray and the dam is the white TB in the pedigree. First time I think, I've seen a white with a gray parent. Cool Filly! And what a race to come form behind like that and blow the doors off of the whole pack in the end.

    Do you know how much she has won so far and how many starts?

    Ohh - well done ! I was trying desperately to make out something that sounded like a name! The picture is much better than the video clip in terms of making out the color - she looks definately like a Maximum Sabino rather than a grey

    Oh and I would not recognize any silks even if they waved in front of my eyes for hours
    I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask them where they're going and hook up with them later.

    Well maybe I am stupid but I didn't think the OP was snarky. It can't turn into a fight if you don't respond to it as though it was picking a fight. I have been so impressed with the general attitude of the boards in the last week. Good and heated discussion without getting too out of control.

    Let's see if we can discuss color without quite as many emotions. The whites in the racing industry have been there with several examples already. Not a brand new thing. I honestly don't personally know of ANY color breeder that does not want their stock to be high quality--some breeders just may be more knowledgeable than others.

    Tell me about the sire--I am not as knowledgeable about some of the pedigrees as I should be. Don't see that pedigree in the database.

    I don't think many TBs continue their racing careers to the point where their coats would have "greyed out" to 100% white. Eight, ten years old or more? And she would have had to be bald-faced (not common in TBs) to not have dark around the eyes/muzzle.

    Nice run.

    You're really preaching to the wrong crowd here...


    ...and, this filly's color shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. She's out of a white, Halo-line mare.

    If you look at the pedigree, the mare's dam is a maximally expressed sabino too. There are two good pictures of the dam if you follow the links.

    The dam has dropped three white foals, including this one.

    That filly is one fine looking gal. Just beautiful.

    Well, when the post is "for you color crowd" and then it's worded like "look a colored horse that actually does something and was bred to do something other than be pretty" and "his color was an accident" than I read some snark into it. I also like the atmosphere on the boards lately and that is why I mentioned how the post came across to me.

    I went back and reread--yes I could see the snark, but honestly if a non color breeder wants to point out that a horse can be "colored" and be "successful" then honestly that person is pointing out what we have said all along!

    So I guess you could choose to read it as a supportive statement! (and take whatever snark they intended right out of the post!)

    I just can't get over seeing them race in the "wrong" direction... :-)

    That totally freaked me out. I know that some places do go to the right. Which countries do that.
