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

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 near leopard. He’s heterozygous for Leopard Print (LP/lp) and pattern gene (PATN1/patn1). Because we know his dam carries the primitive dun gene, we have tested River and he is confirmed nd1/nd2.
