Re: Testing my APHAs

I suspect you have them pretty much covered unless you want to throw tobi & cream in there (just for the heck of it - :laugh1 ). I suspect "momma" has every known pinto pattern out there :o , so I am surprised at so little white on Lloyd - hence, I believe he will test positive for OLW... :lol:

Momma is homozygous tobi and both parents are negative cream;-) I suspect Cougar carries "the white sucking gene" so for him Lloyd would be considered LOUD as both his APHA foals this year will be registered as Solid Paint Bred;-( I am hoping he is aa or Aa as London's sire is black so she can only have one A and Cougar is tested Aa.

Re: Testing my APHAs

I will tell Gayle to get on and answer as I am not sure. Cougar is starting to show this summer and fall so I am not sure if his breeding career will be put on hold or not;-) I am not sure if she posted these pics yet so I will here he is waiting for his trainer to come pick him up to go to train. It was a bitter sweet moment as we are so excited for him to show but will miss him so much. When I pull into Gayle's and he is not there to see it is so strange. He is close enough for her to visit and she has lessons with the trainer once a week too;-)

Re: Testing my APHAs

Cougar just gets better looking every year...if that's possible. :love

Oh, I didn't think Lloyd had cream, but some people won't believe that unless you can "prove it" - hence the slap-stick comment about cream and tobi...just so you can "prove it." :laugh1

entirely possible :love These kind of horses mature slowly. I've been keeping an eye on him as a match for Classy for a while though. I had a colt of similar build when he was grown, beautiful horse, but he looked like dirt untill he was 4 :lol: (he was also a little devil which is a different story and why he's got sold lol) so I was very interested to see one that looked good to begin with!

He is just...wow! I wonder what would happen as far as patterns go, would it be two imovable forces meeting in the middle or one would win? :laugh1

I was pretty sure YOU knew who Lloyds daddy was;-) And Morgan Gayle (who is a big sickie today) said she thinks Cougar will be off for breeding a few mares early next year and his fee is $500.00 Wow if you mess up and forget to shift when hitting the dollar sign it makes his stud fee way up there;-) Izzy Cougars silver gold filly was loaded up and is on her way to Nedpoints so she can move to her new home is Wales. It is exciting to know his offspring will be international;-)
