Ghost is the last imported mare to join the stud, imported from Taliman Horses in France as a late two-year-old, bought to increase the Redheart foals Foundation Blood Lines, add the Appaloosa characteristics and compliment the foals with her correct, compact build.

Ghost is a 5th generation horse of  Appaloosa x Appaloosa breeding and therefore enrolled in the Foundation Pedigree Designation (FPD) program at 100 %. Born from two 100% FPD parents means she is also enrolled in the Generation Advancement Program (GAP) at level 5.
