I think this guy deserves his own thread, so here I'll formally introduce my new stallion, Pink Floyd.
Pink Floyd is 2001 15.3hh bay rabicano Arabian stallion. He is sired by Sire of Significance, Leading Sire, and National Champion Desperado V. Desperado V is sired by Huckleberry Bey, himself a Sire of Significance and multiple national champion, who is by Bey El Bey (sired by Bey Abi, the founding sire for the Varian breeding program and the start of a long line of successful and talented stallions) and out of an incredible Raffon daughter. Desperado V's dam line stems from two the of the most influential Polish sires, Comet and Bask.
Pink Floyd's Dam, Khey to Fame, continues to produce what she was bred to do, and had produced several National Champions. She is sired by Fame VF, the legendary son of the great Legion of Honour and National Champion Bey Shah, who only didn't surpass his sire's success because of an early death. Fame VF is out of a Raffon daughter, aristocrat mare Raffoleta-Rose. Khey To Fame is out a Khemosabi daughter, who needs no introduction and was known as one of the best broodmare producers.
Pink Floyd was shown successfully in halter and was started for Western Pleasure until he was pulled from training due to a conflict of training styles. I hope to get him back on track and make another show ring debut! His pedigree boasts some of the best working western foundation sires and I hope that he really wants to be a reiner at heart!
He is completely charismatic and is such a character! I'm so beyond thrilled that the option to buy him worked out for me, and I can't wait to see what the years bring.
Not only is he unique is his amazing personaility, but his colour! So far, I believe he is the only rabicano Desperado V son, and was quite a shock to both his breeder and the owner of Desperado V when he came out!
He is DNA typed 100% purebred Arabian.
Anyhow, the man of the hour.... Pink Floyd!
These pictures are all from his breeder... More coming soon!
