Beautiful harlequin appaloosa boy born August 29, 2017-- 15 pounds. His fiber coming in a beautiful grey / taupe. This will be a fun one on shearing day! This boy is exceptional! He has fawn spots as well as jet black and dark spots on his legs, neck and cheeks.

Maverick's pedigree is full of legendary color AND appaloosa genetics. His sire is the highly expressive appaloosa harlequin herdsire, "Taupie". Maverick has picked up the harlequin gene from his daddy along with his gentle, easy to handle disposition.

Maverick's dam side of the pedigree are legendary genetics. His TB Grandsire comes from 10x Color Champion 382 Peruvian Zephyrus and PCA Accoyo Shangri-La ( EL Nino’s full brother).

What a fabulous genetic base for the serious appaloosa / harlequin breeders!

Update 11-5-17: Maverick is one little stud-muffin! He was cria tipped when he was a couple of weeks old and his blanket fiber is coming in a nice shade of light silver grey. He is definitely carrying the harlequin gene! He has been perfectly healthy and weighed in at 40 pounds at just 2 months old.

Update 2-2-18: Gotta love these harlequins. Checked fleece today. New growth is coming in a beautiful taupe color!
