    Okay Shell I hope I don't copy anyone but I'll see what I can come up with...

    Unttouchable is a 1994 Bay Arabian stallion who is a grandson to Bask and Aladdinn ( I think that's something special) Most who see him say he looks like both of him. Pictures don't do him justice... He's quite the most unique personality of a horse I have seen. I ocudln't describe it he knows when to be a lion or a lamb. For example I was called yesterday and asked to bring him to a local horse fair for a Liberty demonstration and halter and also be a horse for everyone to pet. (this I worried about) So this morning we arrived at our spot and he was a total gem! He had kids as little ay 1 y/o petting him to people with speical needs, and even this one lady who was 90 y/o got her husband to drive the care over to where she could walk to pet him. He was a total dream just stood there and ate up the attention. Then after a day filled of being in a small stall he came out went in the ring probably did his best class of halter ever and wowed them with Liberty! Boy can this horse trot! I wish I had pictures! (Maybe someone got some we didn't) I was very proud of him!
    Secondly, Touch is a very successful halter horse and has been there and done that in the show ring and has been extremely competitive the whole time. As a yealing he was a Sweepstakes champion. HE has also been very successful in CEP Driving.
    In 2004 Touch was critically injured and was put on stall rest from May to December. He was so paitent for me while I wrapped, hosed, cleaned, whatever I had to do to his leg daily. He was a real trooper and went through alot with that whole ordeal.
    Most importantly he's provided me with some beautiful babies and taught me so much more about horses! I couldn't say good enough about him!

    Well, where can I start!

    My stallion is "Black Fyre," a beautiful and sweet true black Egyptian Arabian. He's 20 years old right now and currently lives out in the field with his 2 girlfriends (and keeps my pony colt in line) and he is simply the sweetest horse I've ever known.

    The stuff that mare owners care about is that he passes on his great temperament and intelligence to his foals. Many of his babies grew up to be in movies, commercials, etc. and he is 3/4 brothers to "Diamond Knight," the horse that played the Black in "The Black Stallion Returns."

    He used to do hunters and dressage, I think, and apparently he was good at it. His foals seem to get his athletic ability too and excel in the hunter ring, and I think a few of his foals (a mare named Miss Domino?) and one of his sons were both reining champions at one time or another. I don't really know too much about his history, just what I was told from the last owner.

    The thing *I* personally like best about him is that you can put anybody on him and he will adjust to match that person's needs. When my barn manager puts her yearling daughter on him, you could probably launch a cannon at him and he'd move away at a careful walk. I'm guessing he was trained at his former home not to move fast when there's little ones on board!

    He's also the only horse I will fall asleep with and not worry about. A while ago I was quite sick and not feeling good, so I laid down in the paddock with the horses and before I knew it I was fast asleep. I woke up to the sound of hooves dancing around my head, and looked up to see Fyre standing over me, making threatening faces to the 2 young colts who were apparently getting too close for his liking. I've never met a horse quite like that before.

    Fyre is super affectionnate, too...I can call him from on side of the field, and even if he was in the middle of having a romantic discussion with another mare over the fence, he'll still turn around, neigh, and come running in to say hello and get his chin scratched. I can ride him around mares (and other stallions) in a snaffle, I can ride him alone with no tack, even if we go for a tackless gallop across the field and I lose my balance, he'll feel it and slow down with a simple "whoa." He's so far the only horse I'm brave enough to do that on!

    When he can tell I'm upset, he is extra perky and does silly things to cheer me up. Once, after a big fight with my boyfriend, he "suggested" we go for a ride by acting too antsy to be in a stall. So, even though it was nearly 1 in the morning and it was dumping snow outside, we went for an exhilirating ride on the **** trails together. Nothing makes you realize that life is so much more than fights with boyfriends than a terrifyingly exciting gallop along the beach a 2am in the snow!

    I can lead him pat a peeing mare with nothing but a haystring, a simple "Fyre, cut it out" will stand him nicely next to another stallion (well, if the other stallion starts talking I need to move him, else my little guy would get his butt kicked) and he is all-round the safest and most dependable riding horse I've ever had the privilige of sitting on. He hasn't been too lucky in the past, but I'm going to be his last home, and he is never again going to feel the pang of hunger or the exhaustion of being overworked. He gets 24/7 turnout with his girlfriends and I think it's safe to say he's leading a happy life.

    Black Fyre

    Nice boys everyone!! I don't have a stallion, but if I ever did he would be special because he was good enough to keep his "Plums" and because he was mine.

    He puts a big engine on them in behind and wonderful movement and so far - all of them that I have seen have beautiful toplines, excellent conformation and beautiful sculpted heads. Plus - being buckskin or palomino doesnt hurt one bit either!

    And if they can jump as well as Dad does - all the better!



    Watch Me - havent seen any of his kids in person, but from what I hear and what I see in the pictures, he passes on excellent work ethics and trainability into his foals, fabulous expansive movement, flashy markings, height and a real talent for dressage. A lot of his younger offspring are also heading into the eventing, hunter and jumper rings, so will be very interesting to see in the future how they compare to his dressage offspring ...



    They are 2 very different stallions but each bring a real talent and ability to their matings and tend to improve small to medium imperfections in their mares as well

    I'm done!
    AHHH Im in love with your stud, If I ever get another thoroughbred mare, Im breeding to Guranteed Gold!

    I thank all for the comments on our boys. Nighter is very special and currently 24 like I said. Infact we've been going through some hectic moments these past few weeks. Finding out his teeth aren't much to look at, having to alter his feeding program to keep him in good weight. He's still gorgeous as always. I really don't know what I'd do without him as he's been here for 13 years since I was 10.

    I spoke to his breeder about 3 years back. He was supposed to send photo's of Nighter as a young man showing halter. Photos of his dad as well as his mom. Never did. His mom passed away at the age of 30. His dad passed away to my knowledge quite some years before that. Dad was Talagato (Talal x Agata III). His mom was Hy Crest Arpege (Skorhaf x Tailormade Adiel). So as you can see. Old lines. Our girls are about the same. Older bloodlines. Good using structure. Great bone. We do a lot of trail riding, open shows, 4-H, and equestrian team. Don't care too much for Arabian shows. Been around the ring a few times so to speak and the scenary was alright but that was about it.

    As for the Percheron. Yes actually Percherons do come in the following colors in order of common to least common. Black, Grey, Chestnut, Bay, and predominantly Blue Roan. Beings that Chestnut and Bay are rare enough adding the already mega rare roan gene makes them non-existant. Black being dominant you end up with Blue Roans. A lot of the draft owners don't know what they have and think they have a grey. Some do however. Thats when they cost a pretty penny.

    Another draft breed. Belgians were predominantly Roans back in the 10s, 20s, 30s, and 40s. By the late 70s, and 80s Chestnut had all but taken over. They pretty much cut themselves short by breeding chestnut to chestnut all the time and cutting out the other colors. You can still find Belgians in multiple colors in Europe. Bay, Bay Roan, Chestnut, Red Roan, Black, and sometimes but rare, Grey.

    Clydesdales are overcoming the beer popular color of Bay sabino. Clydesdale owners really like black, so black sabinos are making a come back in the Clydesdale world. Black, Bay, Grey, and Chestnuts are being seen more all the time in the Clyde's.

    Shire's I rarely see. I do know that like Clyde's they were popular as Bay with lots of white (sabino). However I'm seeing Blacks and Grey's as well there.

    We have one foal due out of him and I hope it carries the bonus of dad's color to preserve it. He was a nice stallion but highly misunderstood. Shuffled from home to home. He needed a man to handle him, and a program to be in.

    He is VERY cool!!! If I had a Perch mare, I'd be sending her on over!!
