    I believe the damsire is a Samber son.

    I should have figured, but since there are a few other non-Samber pinto lines, just wondered, thanks!

    I think it's a shame though, it would have been very, very nice to have a non-Samber line pinto in the Totilas line

    There's another picture and the caption reads "Oso Glamorous by Totilas X Ivoor" ... a little bit of googling produced the mare's page ... pretty lacking in pedigree information. Says the foal has been sold to Europe

    Hmmm, a whole bunch of unknowns in there...

    Not a choice I would have been brave enough to make but it seems they have produced a great result. Good stuff!

    I wonder why someone would put out the money for Totilas semen when the dam can only be a pre-mare book mare???

    Considering the amount of "unknown" breeding in the mare's pedigree, and the fact that she appears quite short-legged, I wonder if there is Tinker in her background.

    At any rate, I am sure SOMEONE would pay far more than it is really worth for a colored Totilas foal. It isn't my cup of tea, but it would be a boring world if we all thought alike.

    Heavy duty photoshopping in that first pic. I wonder what they were deleting all over the background and ground?

    Wow..those folks were brave. I agree that the mare looks rather short legged and is not my type. Does seem like lots of $$$ to spend for such a limited pedigree on the dam side...

    Meh some people in this world have so much money that they can "play" with what ever they like. Maybe to these people Toto's stud fee is not a pocket book stretcher and honestly in the grand skeme of things it's not. Many top winning AQHA reinering stallions, halter and please have fees MUCH higher than Toto's. The stud fees in the Hunter Jumper and Dressage world are "moderate" (even Totilas) compaired to the fees often found in the Western world. The mare owners may have thought it would make a good cross for what ever reason and wrote a check to the breeder, the vet, stable ect ect and may well have never blinked an eye at the cost. Maybe this mare despite being "humble" has produced some stellar babies in the past, who knows. But what I can tell you is that many of people chosing to breed to him have pockets so deep that breeding to get a "fashionable" Toto is an expensive hobby =p

    The mare's page says
    Harveys Gazelle has had some stunning foals so far, so we applied for a nomination and were lucky enough to be selected.

    I'm not crazy about the mare and wondered how she passed the approval to get to breed to Totilas, but maybe those are just unflattering photos of her? I think the foal is adorable.
    Rhode Islands are red;
    North Hollands are blue.
    Sorry my thoroughbreds

    I thought the 'selected nomination' procedure to do with Toto breedings was all a bit of a nonsense. Does anyone know of a nomination that was turned down?

    Never heard of an application being knocked back.
