Congratulations to the new owner of Marty – April Wood

Marty is out of our mare Caricks Redheart, inseminated with fresh semen from our Stallion DFR Patahas Redheart. This is our first home bred foal with this combination and what an adorable foal they have created.

Certified negative by parentage for PSSM1 – Polysaccharide Storage Myopathy, HERDA – Hereditary Equine Regional Dermal Asthenia, GBED – Glycogen Branching Enzyme Deficiency, HYPP – Equine Hyperkalemic Periodic Paralysis Disease, MH – Malignant Hyperthermia, Grey gene and Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC).

He is registered with the Appaloosa Horse Club,  the Appaloosa Horse UK and the British Appaloosa Society.

Bay (EE Aa) with one copy of cream (CR/cr) making him a buckskin leopard. He’s heterozygous for Leopard Print (LP/lp) and homozygous pattern (PATN1/PATN1). Reflection is the reason we chose to test for the Dun gene, his phenotype is quite unique in my mind and as it is with Appaloosas, they always surprise you!  Very much curiosity but the results proved correct, his dam Caricks Redheart carries the gene nd1, a gene found in Dun’s that can show primitive markings. He has inherited nd1 (nd1/nd2) not to be confused with the Dun gene that affects colour dilution.

Expected height 15.2hh

Marty’s page shall remain here and be updated as and when we receive notifications of his progress through life!

He will be shown and ridden as he becomes a life long partner with his new owner who is 11 years old! This is the start of a beautiful relationship.
