Results are back on this colt. Homozygous for tobiano AND black. We tested him for a buyer that insisted we do so, with a promise to send a deposit as soon as the test results proved he was homozygous for tobiano. Until (if/when) this deposit arrives, this colt is for sale. UPDATE: 1/30/2014. No deposit, we are now assuming the buyer backed out. This colt has GREAT conformation, disposition and bloodlines. He will mature between 15.1 and 15.2, I believe. He's a VERY late colt, but has a lot of leg under him. Sire is 15 hands, dam is a good 15.3. Sire is a son of Color Me Smart and out of a full sister to Peptoboonsmal. Dam is a granddaughter of Ris Key Business, with Music Mount bloodlines on her bottom side. This is a very upright, elegant looking colt. Full sister is nearly 15 hands already, and starting lightly under saddle - with ease. This colt should follow the same maturation path. Because his dam is black tobiano, he is heterozygous for agouti (meaning he WILL throw black, grulla, etc)
IF you want this colt as a gelding, his price will be reduced.
You can get a look at his dam, sire, gdam, gsire (all a part of our breeding program) at our web site: www.diamanh.com
