And I'd leave him a stallion!!!!
Fugly's post today about, yet another!!, bunch of horses seized from, yet another!! over zealous/overwhelmed horse person.
As always, it's disturbing that people let things get this bad and won't do anything about it. Even fugly admits that the slaughter option is still available.
No kidding! She really said it!
"Actually, you can send them to slaughter all day – doesn’t make it right, but you can."
Immediately they all go to dissing on this lady's stallions. Who knows what the horses look like now? One is reportedly dead. But there were two in the bunch I would take...and keep as stallions.
This guy would be my top pick of the two...and I'm not even a "paint" horse person per say....
Fugly's quote on what she thinks of him...
"#5, I just want to say he looks like a gelding. He’s spectacularly unspecial. The neck is short and the head/neck are coarse, and we have post legs again behind mixed with being a little bit sickle hocked for good measure."
Well, as they say...opinions are like (you know what). I happen to really, really like this horse.
It's so sad that fugly has such a narrow vision of what is acceptable in terms of conformation. Yea, if you compare this horse's neck to that of the horse's fugly has experience with...I'm sure it looks short.
Now if you look for horses like I do, I don't have a problem with his neck. Sorry fugly, but calf roping horses just aren't going to be sporting swan necks anytime soon. Neither are the vast majority of heel horses. There's a butt-load of Triple A race horses that have short necks too. Go figure!
He's a tad straight behind. Waaayyyyy better than the vast majority of Homozygous Paint horses. That little bit of sickle hock wouldn't deter me a bit either. I wonder if fugly has ever looked at a lot of the high dollar reining stallions across the country?
Then I looked up this guys bloodlines and I nearly drooled on the keyboard...
Boomerang Bang (He even has a cool name-LOL)
Anyone looking for a guaranteed color producing stallion for barrel horse prospects? This guy should produce some runners and users.
I bet he can run himself.
If anyone knows anything about this horse or the yellow stallion...let me know.
