July Stud of the Month: Royal Dreamwalker

This one's for Kari!

Royal Dreamwalker from Dodgeville, WI

Here's some info for the Paint Horse fans: Homozygous for Tobiano and the black gene.

For those of you who don't speak Paint, this means all of his foals will be black and white, never sorrel or chestnut, and they'll have the tobiano coat pattern -solid line spots, not speckled, although I think it looks like he's got some interesting Overo looking stuff going on too. Okay maybe that wasn't so plain to understand after all. Oh the Wonderful Amazing World of Paint Horses!




Took me long enough to get July's Stud posting done but I think he's worth the wait!

Incredible! I don't get to see paints around here much, most people own quarter horses. I ahve wanted a paint, though, since I was a little girl... *sigh*

OMG! He's gorgeous! I am soo totally in love. Thanks Heidi!

Oh, and BTW those "spots" are called "ink spots" or "paw prints" and that is one of the "marks" of a homozygous. :)
