Molly Lou Peyres X Akawaio Potawatomi
After foaling we observed some neurological signs that deteriorated over time.
PP was laid to rest 09.08.22, only when there was no gravity to her body, we saw a rugby shaped bulge appear over her spine.
We can only assume a tumour was growing putting pressure on the spinal cord.
She is at peace with her Mother Barbara Evans which gives us great comfort.
The most stoical equine I have ever met, just like my mother.
Her nature was one of a kind, her beauty captured in all her foals where they carry her huge heart.
“PP” was imported as a weanling from Johann & Romana Derflinger who breed under their stud in Austria named Foundation RHD Appaloosas.
A black (EE/aa) leopard mare, heterozygous for Leopard Complex (LP/lp) and the PATTERN1 (PATN1/patn1) genes.
Certified 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, Grey gene and Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC).
Passported with the Austrian ApHC, registered with Appaloosa Horse Club, enrolled on their Foundation Pedigree Designation Programme at 100%FPD, over-stamped with Appaloosa Horse Club UK on their A register and the British Appaloosa Society Grade “A”, also registered with the Foundation Appaloosa Association.

2010 – A light introduction as a yearling into the world of in-hand showing, two wins and two placings.
2011 – We continued her in-hand career, Judges’ comments “she’s got a lot of growing to do”. How right they were, even as a two-year-old PP was visibly weak but her bone structure was the key to what was about to develop.

A look back at 11 years with Princesse Pascale.
Imported from Austria as a weanling, Dam of Evee, Ben, Reality and Rookie and Grand Dam to Revelation.
PP spent her young stock days in the ring before being backed and ridden away. Standing at 16hh she’s the tallest and most laid-back mare we have, she’s proved to be an exceptional broodmare.
With 30/30 Appaloosas in her pedigree, her bloodlines are traced back to 8 horses listed on the ApHC Hall Of Fame (The Appaloosa Horse Club Hall of Fame was established in 1986 to recognize the unique contributions and positive impact individual horses have made on the ApHC).
DOUBLE SIX DOMINO, JOKER B and RED EAGLE are found on both sides of her pedigree, whilst her Sire line boasts PATCHY and SUNDANCE and her Dams line enriched with BRIGHT EYES BROTHER, MIGHTY BRIGHT and PRINCE PLAUDIT.
Influential Quarter Horse stallions such as OLD FRED 1894 (PHBA Hall of Fame), JOE HANCOCK 1923 (AQHA Hall of Fame), POCO BUENO 1944 (AQHA Hall of Fame) and KING 1932 (AQHA Hall of Fame ) are found. We also see the Thoroughbreds, ROCK SAND 1900, “a leading British two-year-old of his generation he became the tenth winner of the Triple Crown in 1903, winning the 2,000 Guineas Stakes, The Derby and the St. Leger Stakes” and ST FRUSQUIN 1893 “the best British two-year-old of 1895, wins included the Middle Park Plate and the Dewhurst Plate., 2000 Guineas, the Princess of Wales’s Stakes and the Eclipse Stakes”.
PP is the shadow of Catori and a Foundation broodmare to our herd, her breeding is a huge asset to the Foundation Blood Lines here at Redheart Appaloosas.
