Foundation Appaloosa Semen Available 2024 (LP/LP PATN1/PATN1) – ALL MARES


For 2024 ONLY, we will be offering our Stallion, DFR Patahas Redheart (Blu) frozen semen to ALL mares in the UK & Europe.

Blu is a 15.2h, smoky black (EE aa CRcr) Foundation Appaloosa, homozygous for the Leopard Complex gene (LP/LP) and the Pattern gene (PATN1/PATN1).

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

A very kind stallion who we have brought on very slowly, he’s successfully competed in the ring (in hand & under saddle) and was lightly introduced to show jumping earlier this year.

He has contributed his share of the genes to some awesome Appaloosa foals here in the UK & Europe.
His details are HERE.

Please email us for a contract and a copy of his Semen Assessment if you are interested – HERE.

ALL mares must be certified 5 panel negative, NO grey mares, NO LP/LP mares and NO inbreeding or linebreeding (see pedigree).

ALL mares will be included on his Stallion Report 2024 with ApHC UK, BApS & ApHC as standard.

Payment of £500 must be received (1 dose (6 straws)) before semen will be released from Stallion AI.

Limited to the first 20 doses being ordered.

A Year With Redheart Result

It is not our desire or goal to cross two homozygous LP Appaloosas, we don’t want to 100% create CSNB horses but when you have two exceptional Appaloosas and all you want is a filly then it’s worth taking the chance. Our 50/50 for gender paid off and we were absolutely delighted to see the safe arrival of the filly Redheart Result on the 23rd February 2021.

The name Result is the meaning behind our goal…and what a RESULT she is, she has the most adorable personality, a small (first maiden foal) but well built and compact and seems to be eventually growing in height!

Today she is a year old and here is a little video of her life here at the stud to date…

Her dam, Talismans Redheart (aka Ghost) has been inseminated with semen from Hevans EV Catorrius (aka Reus) and is is currently 336 days gestation, might we see a sibling on this very day?

Firstly we pray for a healthy mare and foal and ideally a filly to retain, it will be Reus’s first FAHR eligible foal and 100% FPD. We don’t care about the colour or pattern, it will 100% be heterozygous for LP but as Ghost doesn’t carry PATN1, it’s 50/50 if Reus passes his copy over, if he does then we will see spots but if he doesn’t we will see Appaloosa characteristics and the foal will become a varnish roan.

We have three possibilities of colour, black, bay or chestnut, how excited are we!
