Pinot is our rising three year old, homozygous silver, homozygous black, heterozygous dominant agouti extension sports horse stallion.
Bred by the Tacoma Stud and purchased as a very young foal at foot alongside his dam, Pinot is by the wonderful silver bay showjumping stallion Oldlands Vivaldi IV. Pinot has inherited his sire's silver gene as well as another from his Kentucky Mountain Horse dam, LJP Sunny's Faelory, who is herself 3/4 Rocky, 1/4 Standardbred in her own breeding.
With the combined athleticism, good nature and soundness of both sides of his pedigree, Pinot has wonderfully floaty paces, a sweet nature, and we expect will result in a talented and very trainable and willing partner when he starts his ridden career. He will shortly be attending both Breeders Elite and AES young stallion grading.
Pinot has been colour tested as EEAaZZ, and already stands at well over 17 hands before his third birthday. He will offer good bone and height to his mares, as well as the guaranteed silver black or silver bay foals to all non grey, solid coloured non dilutes. With four mares already in foal to him as a result of our test fresh and frozen semen collections in 2022, we are eagerly awaiting the birth of the first of these special foals from March 2023 onwards.
Pinot will be offered via fresh and frozen semen to approved mares only after being backed in early 2023, after which he will be turned away and brought back into work in 2024. If a quality amateur sports horse foal is what you are looking for, with stunning colour and a people friendly outlook, he is the perfect choice.
