Congratulations and good luck to the new owner of River –  Karen in Halesowen.

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.

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 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.

Expected height 15.2hh

He has already bonded with his owner from 12 weeks of age, their partnership is very strong and we can’t wait to see their future unfold.

Karen & River’s debut outing was at Hanbury Countryside Show and what a super start to their In Hand showing. We are so proud of them, as they enter a new world of equine enthusiasm.
