Just wanted to say THANK YOU to everybody who has messaged me here, there, and everywhere. I'm hugely flattered to be on the receiving end of many of these offers (me? really? are you sure?!?!), and... am actually kind of overwhelmed by the display of generosity. Thank you all, really.
Second, a loved one I haven't seen in a long time has surprise-visited me today (!!!!) so I'll get to doing my breeding homework and replying to everybody after the weekend, when they've left. I hope this isn't going to inconvenience anyone terribly/ I promise I'm not ignoring you.
In the mean time, my inbox is still open, and I would still love to hear from prospective sire owners! The more the merrier, right?
@Serenity-Gwin I do want to just ad the stud in the UK that has the Tobiano "Thoroughbreds" has admitted and even states on their website that the horses have a percentage of Warmblood in them, so they're not pure Thoroughbreds. Their founding stud is "75%TB 25% coloured sports horse type" according to their site. Those horses do race, however it may not be under the JC.
I only wanted to ad this because I've searched high and low, even calling places irl, to find tobiano purebred Thoroughbreds, but it's just a gene they do not carry and likely never will and still be a purebred, sadly.
