I've been needing some pretty horses in my life as a change up from the normal beasties I see too often at auction or online. Also Mugs has been posting about coming out of the 'color closet', so I'll admit it. I also enjoy a flashy horse. My own horse isn't flashy but I've had some flashy projects.
I hate that it's true, but it's 10 times easier to sell a flashy horse than a plain one, no matter how much better of a horse the plain color may be. I can sell a buckskin or a paint all day long. Now this doesn't mean I won't pick up a chestnut horse at a sale, it just means I'm baffled when the chestnut horse with excellent conformation and training is harder to sell than a horse with less then ideal conformation. To me, conformation is pretty.
Below are some of the flashier:
Sassy- grulla AQHA mare
Felix- palomino AQHA gelding
(Felix actually sold before he was even really listed- they came to see another horse and saw him and fell in love.)
Flicka- sorrel- possible red chocolate Tennuvian mare
Honey- Pinto MFT mare
Cowboy- Paint gelding
(Cowboy was sold pretty much sight unseen to the same people who bought the horse below- Little Bit)
Little Bit- pinto mare
Midas- palomino AQHA gelding
Clover-Bay MFT mare
Danza- Buckskin Paso mare
Fiona- sorrel TWH mare
Kota- paint gelding
Ice- pinto, paint gelding
Aaaannnnd now: Have some more pretty horses to brighten up your weekend.
