This is Rocky. I have no papers on him, but have been told he is probably Foundation Quarter Horse. Your comments? Also any comments on what color he is.

I really like Rocky. He has a nice big hip, good angles to his pasterns which match the angle of his shoulder as well. He has a nice topline with a bit more length to his underline which is good as well. It's hard to tell because he's looking at the camera, but his neck looks to to be a little thick, and I can't get a good look at the length in comparison to his body.

Overall, he is a nicely put together horse with a kind, alert expression. I like him.

As for the colour. Hmmm, you got me. His coat colour almost looks like a bucksin but he doesn't have the dark points to the ears, lower legs and tail. His tail has some flaxen but also a darker colour. His mane has some darker hairs but they almost look gray in that pic. He almost looks like a chocolate palomino but still, that's not it either. I'm stumped on the colour.

Oh well. I like him anyways.

What a handsome guy! I love the big hip. He has a nice long tail and mane. He is very well put together. Nice top line and good solid legs. I agree there is some QH there, but it looks like something else too. It's really hard to tell the color when they still have their winter coat. I think I see some dappling on his hind quarters. Definitley some palomino. I saw a color advertised as a chocolate palomino...maybe that's it. He has a sweet face and a nice eye. You have two fine looking horses.

The color reminds me a bit of that of Rocky Mountain horses, just lighter! Going by conformation, though, I'd say he HAS to be at least mostly Foundation QH.

EZ..
I agree on the Rocky Mountain. That must be what else I see. They have the long thick manes too. They are mostly a chocolate color with a flaxen mane and tail. Gorgeous!

Tag..
Is his ride really smooth? He is quite a handsome guy!

Thank you for the kind comments. I have always referred to him as a palomino, but he is almost a sooty palomino color. I like the sound of chocolate palomino better! And yes he does have dappling on both hips and shoulders. The one fault you cannot see is his mutton withers. He is almost flat across the withers, hard to keep a saddle in place.
You can't see Tag's tail in the picture, but his tail touches the ground too! I believe that the supplement I've been giving them, Omega Horseshine has done that. Both of their tails are at least a foot longer than when I got them.
Tag is a bit rougher at the trot than Rocky. He has some arthritis in the rear legs. He's a great trail horse tho'.
