Escher, named after the well-known artist M.C. Escher, is a handsome macho with impressive genetics and extreme appaloosa markings.

Bidding Info


Shae is a fantastic girl out of the legendary black herdsire Patagonia’s Darwin and Charlize, the daughter of import CPeruvian Silvino. This light fawn/light rose grey girl charmed us from the moment she hit the ground. Charlize has been a great mom, with lots of milk, and even more love for her baby!

On December 1, 2016, Shae had a beautiful fawn girl from harlequin grey herdsire, Taupie! Shae is an excellent mom with lots of milk.

In Fall 2017, Shae gave us a beautiful platinum harlequin boy, sired by our incredible harlequin appy herdsire, Billabong! This boy will be some thing special!
