Trou is an extremely rare
Silver Classic Champagne Rocky stud colt who is Certified to Breed
with an outstanding foundation pedigree.
As a 3 year
old, he stands at
14.2 hands and should mature to 15h. He has a nice
steppy saddle rack and while he is still growing, his training is
focused on becoming a solid trail
companion. His first foal is due Spring 2012. He will be set up
for artificial insemination shipments with Equine Reproductive
Concepts in Amissville VA
as we now do for Hondo our
buckskin stallion. Feel free to Email
me with any inquiries.
silver classic is a black horse with both the champagne and silver
genes. This means that in addition to straight black or bay, he
can sire classic and amber champagne, chocolate and white or red
chocolate foals. Trou is also 'homozygous black' which means he
can never sire a red foal. The
foal color is dependent on the color genetics of the mare. He will never sire a
golden champagne, red or sorrel foal, however if a buckskin or
palomino mare is bred to him and she produces the cream gene with
the champagne gene, the foal will appear to be a golden
coat of a Champagne horse is hard to describe and even harder to
photograph. It is shiny, silky and very smooth with an iridescent
sheen that is the result of the hollow hair shafts found in all
Champagnes. His coat also has a lilac tint which
when combined with that iridescent glow and his outgoing playful
personality make him quite the show stopper every where we go.
We plan to breed him to black and bay mares, so we have a 50/50 chance of getting a black based
Amber and Classic Champagne OR Silver (chocolate) foals and sometimes both Champagne and silver foals which will
look like Trou himself. His
"double dilute" genetic makeup increases your odds of getting a
marketable colored foal in addition to his foundation bloodlines
since he carries TWO modifiers to black in his genes, he is more
likely to produce one or the other every time he is bred.
Trou is a very sweet, outgoing, people oriented young stallion. He's a
delightful addition to our family and our breeding program.
If you're wondering what your mare could have here is a link to a color
calculator which will help you find out. His color is so rare that they don't include it with silver modifier in the calculator, so choose
Classic Champagne with the knowledge that you could get a silver (Chocolate) colored foal in addition to their list of colors.
