Bidding Info


Star Dust is a wonderful male our of our excellent appy producer, Solara, and sired by the taupe colored harlequin male, Taupie! He has great fineness, nice density & crimp, great conformation, and a gentle personality. He was born light fawn and remained so through his first year, but now in his second fleece, he is growing in a distinct silver/platinum grey.

This male will make a good breeder some day to the aspiring appaloosa program!


First shows coming in Spring 2018!
