Deuce is more than I had hoped for! He is very unique Harlequin Appaloosa.

When he was first born I thought, 'oh. a pinto'. But when he started drying off and I saw the spots on his head first, I then knew he was something much, much more. He looks very much like his mother, Willo (aka Rocky) but his fiber is a huge upgrade! He has awesome density and it has a very soft handle with good bone density. Add to that is his personality. Deuce is inquisitive, always looking to see what I'm doing and likes to hang out with me. He will eat grain out of your hand. I do not pet him or handle him much but when I walk by him I will put my hand on his back and he just stands there and doesn't kick. Got to love a boy that doesn't kick!

Duece has gone through several color changes in the past year. I'm not sure if he is done yet. I have some harlequins that have retained some fawn color. But not like this. His harlequin color is very dramatic and the only other one like him that I have seen is his dam, although she has no fawn on her now. So will Deuce continue to change color or remain the same--who knows? It will be an interesting journey.

He is on our Junior Herdsire Row with those small ears, that teddy bear face and we hope to be able to breed him next fall. I look forward to the babies he will create.

registration pending. will post when it arrives.
