Did you just now post that? I couldn't find where you posted it earlier.

The picture could use some work but She would be the one we were thinking about breeding to a cutter (bethesacat) (four sixes)

I sure do like that corona cartel stud. I sent a friend request to her on face book.

Thanks for the info.

You are very welcome, I am sure you'll enjoy visiting with her; please let her know I said hello when you talk to her . :D

Just from your mare's conformation, she looks like she'd be a good cross on Bet Hesa Cat. He's an awfully nice horse, and performed the way his breeding suggests he could. He's got a great maternal line. Have you talked to anyone at the Sixes that has ridden him and can give you an idea of how much speed he has? The answer to that question is only important if you're breeding for a barrel prospect, really, and your mare certainly looks like she's bred to run, so you ought to be picking up speed from the mare, as well. But if you want to produce a fast horse out of a fast mare, it never hurts if the baby has a speedy sire.... :-)

The other horse that is in that same price range and that you might want to consider for this type of cross, is less a cutting horse than he is a working cow horse and a really good, sane, and athletic sire that puts a lot of stout, a lot of speed, and a lot of pretty on good minded babies: Real Gun. I've seen pictures of little kids riding stud sons of that horse. Terry Forst has already sold him to Brazil, but she kept back frozen semen and he might be an option, as well.

Either way, it's a lot of fun to make hypothetical crosses :D

Faster horses wrote:Hound-gutted could be best described by narrow in the flank to the top
of the back (or loin). In using horses that can make them gaunt up faster
than a horse that is fuller in the flank. Race horses tend to have that
hound-gut moreso than other types of horses (and for a reason). But since
this horse isn't being raced, I think he could be fuller in that area.
But that's just me...

I just googled it and found this:

The term hound-gutted refers to a horse (usually) that has a relatively slim waist. In other words it has a high flank. Like a Grey hound dog.
It is not considered to be an admirable quality.


Thanks, FH, that makes a lot of sense calling them hound gutted.

Not sure how this horse will finish filling out (he's four this year, and was really lean this spring when I first saw him). I know he's not nearly as lean today as he was in the pictures on the Facebook page. I spoke with Celina today and she confirmed that they're taking more pictures this afternoon, so we're going to see one way or the other whether or not those groceries are sticking to his ribs :D

For those of you that (like I do ...) enjoy getting an eyeful of good horseflesh, check out the AQHA World Show Sale Catalog here http://www.saravaessenpedigrees.com/catalogs/2012WSSaleCatalogPF.pdf

Look at lots 54 and 65. They're my pick of what I'd take home with me (and would both probably be bred to the sorrel horse we were talking about :D ).

Alright, so I got new pictures from Celina of her young stallion, and he's definitely putting on weight. As promised, I've got the pictures posted on the Facebook page. You can see them at http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.465116460177083.101197.374708135884583&type=1&l=92a77191f6

Bone chip surgery gone bad. Left a fluid leak.

I thought it was perhaps a wind puff.

The picture is awfully big, but he looks very nicely balanced in this picture.
Love his head and neck! A nice neck on a horse balances them out nicely.
IMO. I'll go take a look on facebook.

Thanks for the picture, Chimenea!

I wanted to tell you--Lot 54 in that catalog (wow, really some nice horses there.
I need to take time to look at it further)--anyway she goes back to
Playgun on the topside. I have a friend in Oklahoma who sells Progressive
Nutrition horse feed and Piepers are among her customers. So I went with
her one day and we walked out into the pasture where Playgun resides.
He's so nice, and what a treat to get to see him in the flesh. She says
he produces many very nice horses that are multi-talented. Anyway,
I got to see him with my own eyes~
just thought I'd mention that little known and less-cared-about-fact. :wink:

I don't now horse pedigrees like some of you serious enthusiasts, but that Lot 65 looks like one that could raise some awfully nice colts. That's the kind I'd be after. Fun to look at that link. :wink:
