Yep, it's Piaffe. His name is Nimir, if you want to search for him.

He also tested positive for gray, so now she's kind of waiting to see if he'll gray out entirely.

Oh I wasn't looking to breed to either stallion. I only have one gelding right now. I used to have/raise appies. And I do know color should not be the purpose for breeding, its just an added bonus. I meant that I love horses with color more so then anything.

I appreciate everyone's comments. I had not seen a horse with a brindle markings before and found it quite interesting.

That was a VERY interesting article. Thank you for sharing that information. I have had horses for 30+ years and didn't even know that there were any brindles out there!
