I tracked down my old Appy's original owner and he told me that she has very old bloodlines also. I would love to get her paper work. But I do know I have never seen another rat tail App around here. He could have just been telling me stories but it was still fascinating.
He is maturing nicely GWA...has a lot of Peppers Shamrock in him. Have you been able to tell if he shuffles yet?
Unfortunetly this boy doesnt shuffle. Too many generations of breeding non shufflers :( Which stinks because I really do enjoy my shufflers. Im going to be breeding him with some of my shuffling mares though.. Im very hopeful that he still might produce them with shuffling mares as I'd like to keep my gaited appy line going.
I kept a son from Phantom our senior shuffling stallion that is his twin just about. He has been strongly shuffling since birth. Since phantom is quickly coming on 18 I needed to plan for the future and this boy was just too nice to not retain.
I am a proud owner of a 100% PURE Appy! Chub's Sonseeray El Rio! His family history has quite the champion line....linking back to Frank Scripter! I love my boy there is no question in that...No mane and a beautiful tail!
This leopard print appy is gorgeous! Have you ever looked up Frank Scripter? He bred the Leopards here in Michigan until he passed away! I have a foundation appy who is linked to Frank!! Worth checking into.
