Brooks N Beau Bailey

1995 AQHA Grulla mare 
By Sputniks Tacky Beau

SOLD, Congratulations to Ferry in The Netherlands


Brooks is a nice, average-sized mare with a fantastic shoulder...long and nicely angled.  She has a very clean throatlatch, great withers, small ears, and a beautiful frontal facial expression that is what I'd call "soft" or "cute" because of her large nostrils and wide-set eyes.  Most importantly (for me, because I'm a farrier), she has perfectly-straight legs with proper angles and bone.  

Brooks is by a buckskin dun (dunskin) stallion and out of a buckskin dam.  Brooks carries both the creme and the dun gene.  So, she'll be a 75% color producer out of plain-colored stallions, and an 87.5% color producer out of dun or grullo stallions.  Crossed with our stallion, she will be a 94% color producer!

Brooks Information (remember our honesty policy...tell you the negatives so that you'll be pleasantly surprised rather than the other way around if you buy...if you are looking at a horse and the seller doesn't tell you negatives, then he or she is hiding something!):
bulletVery green broke...was on some trail rides for previous owner, but we've not ridden her.
bulletStraight legs 
bulletGreat hooves, easy to take care of--maybe only requiring trim once per year to keep them looking good, but she really wears them herself (I don't think we've trimmed her for 1 1/2 years, and she doesn't need a trim)
bulletNo white
bulletTons of color in her pedigree
bulletNicely-shaped head with slight dish and clean throatlatch
bulletShort, fox ears
bulletSuper sheen to her coat
bulletCarries the creme gene, and would therefore produce palominos and buckskins in addition to duns, grullas, and red duns 
bulletGreat milker and foals without assistance
bulletGets along great in the pasture and handles easily
bulletSometimes requires grain to catch her when she has foal at side, but it has never taken us more than 5 minutes of walking to catch and halter her.  In fact, she doesn't walk away from us in an open pasture...only when she's up by the gate.  Can't figure that one out, but it's ok.  We just walk out to pasture and walk right up to her without grain usually. 
bulletCould use a little more muscling in the hip to me, but made a nicely-muscled baby for us in 2002.  He will be standing at stud in North Carolina.  He sold for $4000 plus reserved breedings, and was tested Homozygous for Black by UC Davis.

bulletBrooks is for sale for $6000 with her 2003 grullo colt until June 10th.  We'll re-evaluate her price if she does not sell before then, as we can split her from her colt soon after and sell them separately.  She will be bred back to our grullo roan stallion in mid May for a 2004 foal.

If you're looking for a color-producing mare, you'd be smart to seriously consider this mare!  To our knowledge, she's never had a non-colored foal.  Guaranteed to carry the creme gene AND the dun factor gene, and probably is homozygous for black as well.  Out-produces herself!  Look at this year's foal for an example!
