AKA – Ru
Born 13th April 2018
Congratulations to the new owners of Ru – Chubarry Appaloosa Stud
Under her new registered name Redheart RU Chubarry
Ru is out of our homebred mare Redheart Regal from natural covering with our resident stallion DFR Patahas Redheart. This filly is absolutely outstanding and the best surprise, inheriting the cream gene from the sire, making her a buckskin.
A bay (Ee Aa) who has two copies of the Leopard Complex gene and one copy of the Pattern 1 gene. Negative 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 and Grey gene by certified parentage.
Registered with the Appaloosa Horse Club, enrolled in their Foundation Pedigree Designated programme at 100% FPD, “A” register with the Appaloosa Horse UK with a passport over-stamped by British Appaloosa Society as a Part Bred. Ru is registered with the Foundation Appaloosa Horse Registry, her foundation lines are traced back to the first 8 Stud Books of the ApHC at 79.7851%.
Expected height 15hh+, with an athletic build, she could easily compete in any discipline and would be an asset to any Appaloosa Stud as a broodmare.
Ru has joined the Chubarry Appaloosa Stud in Hertfordshire, she will undertake her new registered name “Redheart RU Chubarry” under the ownership of Wendy Fitzgerald. Ru will commence her show career and eventually join the broodmares, awaiting the mating season with the resident stallion, Chubarry Charlie.
This breeding will be a superb addition to the Appaloosa world, combing excellent conformation, wonderful natured horses with proven show records and unique bloodlines here in the UK.
The icing on the cake for Chubayy Appaloosas, their crossing of a bay (EE AA) non-characteristic (lp/lp) PATN1/PATN1 stallion with a homozygous mare (LP/LP) who carries PATN1 and the cream dilute gene will give the stud a superb opportunity to produce 50% bay or 50% bay buckskin characteristic foals 100% of the time.
We wish Ru, Charlie and Wendy all the very best of luck in their new and exciting venture and if anything should change we will have Ru back in a heartbeat!
Ru’s page shall remain here and be updated as and when we receive notifications of her progress through life!
