Weekly Sales Circuit: These Bay Geldings are Anything but Plain

Horses come in a myriad of colors: Palomino, chestnut, paint, grey, black, dun, bay…There are a few colors from this list that are a bit more common, though.  Bay is one of them.  Why?  We’re not totally sure…maybe it has to do with blending in with the background, for protection against predators?

In any case, we often hear the term “plain bay wrapper” when talking sales.  A farm might have 20 bay horses and one paint.  However, these geldings we found here are anything but plain! *Insert googly eyes* These horses are from Florida, California, and New Jersey.

2012 17.2h Holsteiner gelding. Naturally quiet, brave to the jumps, TONS of scope. Has a show record up to the 1.30s at WEF. Nirvana has also competed with an adult and could make a super JR/AO horse. Very forgiving and can take a joke. Quiet enough that he could double or go in the direction of an Eq horse, would make a super USET horse. Open to leasing to the right situation, or lease to own situation.

Esca Drille

His large comfortable lofty gaits and gorgeous conformation make him a perfect prospect for you to stand out in the Equitation rings.
