We know the official announcement has been much anticipated…LexLin is now home to the Sundance Kid!
Sundance is a stunner! He is golden buckskin, blagdon in color which is rare in the Gypsy Vanner/Gypsy Cob breed. He has one blue eye and one brown eye which really make him look almost like a different horse depending on which profile you see. He is registered with Gypsy Horse Registry of America and the Gypsy Vanner Horse Society as a breeding stallion. We have DNA color results for Sundance and he is available for stud to a limited number of approved Gypsy mares in 2011. We breed Sundance to one of our outstanding Gypsy mares last week. We know he will make a great addition to our breeding program at LexLin!
Here is Sundance’s pedigree as given from famous Gypsy Horse breeder Michael Vine:
“Sundance’s sire is a stallion called TROOPER THORN who is a black and white grandson of Eddie Alcocks Old Horse. His sire is a son of Eddie Alcocks Old Horse and dam is a Bay blagdon splashy mare called Sue Ellen. His sire is Eddie Alcocks Old Horse, who is by the Old Coal Horse.
Sundance dam is a dun mare called WILD ROSE, she is by a palomino stallion called CHIPS 2 x a mare called BLACK BONNY. Chips 2 is by a dark dappled palomino stallion called CHIPS 1 who was owned by my father 35 years ago. Black Bonny is by a Dales bred colt from Weekside Perfect breeding and out of a Black mare called KIZZIE. She was by a palomino stallion called ASPRO, who was around 40 years ago…”
Sundance is currently being evaluated for his riding ability and we hope to begin driving training soon. Please take a look at his page on our website to view more pictures of this Gypsy Vanner stallion. We couldn’t be more excited to have him at LexLin!
