DFR Patahas Redheart aka Blu, registration certificate has arrived from the USA.

The GENERATION ADVANCEMENT PROGRAM (GAP) level 5 printed on the top right of the certificate is  recognition “Blu”  is from two FOUNDATION PEDIGREE DESIGNATION (FPD) parents at 100% .

Over 30 horses in Blu’s pedigree are pure Appaloosa x Appaloosa’s.

In January 2012 the Appaloosa Horse Club (ApHC) announced  “Five Appaloosa’s enrolled in the Generation Advancement Program (GAP) in 2011”. It’s now 2016 and we have the first three here in the UK .

One day Blu will sire a foal with Redheart Pascalius who also has a GAP 5 status, we will then have our first GAP 6, how exciting!

Such progress…..
