Our 2019 Appaloosa’s, Redheart Rookie, Revelation, Relentless & Reflection were taught to tie up as weanlings, as yearlings they are expected to tie up and stand patiently. We think they are doing great!
Here’s a little VIDEO
You may have noticed Redheart Rookie (our 2019 buckskin GAP 5 filly) has been moved from our Mares Page to our Sales Page?
Sometimes you need to take another look at your future breeding plan, there is absolutely nothing wrong with Rookie and sometimes you must to let your best breeding stock go! So, why have we decided to sell her?
Rookie was a planned future breeding mare for Reus, not only do the genetics work but her dam Princesse Pascale is our biggest mare at 16hh, so Rookie’s height and quality stamp from her sire DRF Patahas Redheart meant she was perfect.
Reus is gelded, we only have frozen semen available and we certainly didn’t want to deplete his stock (also we believe frozen semen is wasted on maiden mares) so we have decided to try and create a future breeding mare BY REUS with Princesse Pascale.
This filly will be a full sibling to Redheart Reality, 100% FPD, 16hh, ApHC UK, ApHC and BApS Stud Book registered. We are not bothered about coat pattern / colour, the result will be a quality filly who we would aim to prove in the ring and then hopefully become broodmare with our Stallion Blu…
Thus, creating GAP 5 foals by Blu instead of 100% FPD foals by retaining Rookie and using Reus. We can then continue our Peyres Catori Cat, Hevans EV Catorrious blood lines.
Plan B 🙂
April 2020 is certainly a bit different from April 2019…Despite the sad news that surrounds the world with COVID-19 we are very much in a happy safe place here at Redheart Appaloosas, for which we are thankful for!
Here is a few pictures of our yearlings after their April Shower
Well, that was the easiest weaning we have ever had…
Maybe because we have four foals, maybe because our new stables have “windows” for them to interact?
Minimal “calling” from the mares and foals, quite honestly, we don’t know why the foals were actually not bothered, so we are just going to go with it!
