Congratulations and good luck to Denise Playfair in Cumbria.

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 15.2hh+, with an athletic build, she could easily compete in any discipline and would be an asset to any Appaloosa Stud as a broodmare.

July 2020

Due to Chubarry Stud closure, Ru was offered back to us, unfortunately due to her close bloodline her at the Stud we confirmed we were happy to have her but would have to sell her on. Wendy advertised her for sale and was very fortunate to find a 5* home with Denise.

To help out, we collected Ru from Herts on the 4th July and delivered her to Denise the next day near Kelso. It was lovely to meet Denise and her family, I knew Ru would definitely be loved and have a forever home.


Ru and Denise carried on the showing with Ru, it’s no surprise how well they have done, such a lovely stamp of a mare…She joins the family farm Kaimknowe.  The Kaimknowe Prefix covers their pedigree flocks of Shetland and Norfolk Horn Sheep, herds of Pygmy, Bagot and Golden Guernsey Goats. Appaloosa and Arab horses. Experienced breeder of Standard Smooth Dachshunds, what better life could Ru have.
