About the American Saddlebred
Today finds the American Saddlebred competing in almost every equine activity: from dressage, show jumping, and cross country jumping, to driving, cutting and reining, and high schooling. The breed enjoys a proud history, from the Civil War battlefields to the bright lights of Madison Square Garden. A willing and capable partner for all equestrians - The American Saddlebred.
The American Saddlebred Horse carries himself with an attitude that eludes description - some call it class, presence, quality, style or charm. This superior air distinguishes his every movement.
The ideal American Saddlebred is well-proportioned and presents a beautiful overall picture. The animal should be in good flesh, with good muscle tone and a smooth, glossy coat. Masculinity in stallions and femininity in mares are important. The average height is 15 to 16 hands. All colors are acceptable; the most prominent are chestnut, bay, brown and black, with some grey, roan, palomino and pinto.
|Cremello Breeding Information|
Cremello is a color of horse consisting of a cream-colored body with a cream or white mane and tail. It is the result of "double dilution" on a red (chestnut base coat. This means, that the horse is homozygous for the creme gene, also know as a dilution gene. Such horses have pink skin, blue eyes, are a light cream when born, but can fade to almost white as an adult.
Cremello horses are not albino: their eyes are blue or brown, whereas a true albino would have red eyes, and true albinism is a lethal trait in horses. Cremello's are also not true white horses, which have a pure white coat from birth with brown or blue eyes and pink skin, but no dilution factor.
A horse who has a "red," or chestnut, base coat and is heterozygous for the dilution gene, that is, has only a single copy of the gene, is a palomino. Most palominos have a golden coat with a white mane and tail, and usually have dark eyes (though occasional individuals inherit the blue eyes of the Cremello.
The Creme Gene
The creme gene is a dilution gene expressed in horses, producing lighter colors. When one copy of the gene is present, it dilutes "red" color (chestnut) to yellow or gold, but not black color. When two copies of the gene are present, both red and black hairs become a pale cream color.
A horse with the creme gene does not carry lethal white syndrome. Dilution coloring also has nothing to do with frame overcoat patterns, lethal white syndrome, white- colored horses or the controversial "white" gene.
The creme gene also does not produce the Dun color. There is a separate dun gene that dilutes all colors in a distinct manner.
The Creme Gene produces the colors:
Eye color: double dilutes usually have blue eyes (unlike brown eyes of a gray horse or some white horses). Some palominos are born with light eyes, along with pink skin, which darken within a couple weeks of birth.
