Like Father Like Son.... Secluded Acres Horse Ranch is now offering "Some R Trophy Boys" at stud. His sire "Some R Unique Shadows" was laid to rest due to an injury. Although he will be greatly missed... his son will be just as nice if not nicer!
"Shadow" foaled May 20th, 2009, and is a gorgeous double black homozygous stallion (EE, TT, aa). He is homozygous for the black gene and homozygous for the tobiano gene. This means he will never produce a red colored foal, all his foals will be of the tobiano pattern, and with true black points.
Shadow is simply stunning from any angle. He has the prettiest paint pattern and sweetest disposition I have ever seen in a stallion. With his superb conformation, color and movement... he without a doubt... will meet the high demand of what is expected in today’s horse industry.
Shadow has began his show career. With limited showing he has earned 40 PtHA halter points in just a couple shows. Shadow placed 1st and 2nd under 4 judges in the Tobiano Color class. I truly believe Shadow is a champion in the making.
His impeccable bloodlines include the following Champions, Performers and Point Earners.
