Just Smitten's dam is harlequin appaloosa Tic Tac, the product of two top producing harlequins from the Kuska herd. She carries legendary appaloosa / harlequin genetics on both sides of her pedigree making it very possible that she is homozygous for the appy / harlequin trait. She has had three offspring-- all out of non-appaloosa / harlequin gene carriers-- one is a classic appaloosa and the other two are harlequin appaloosas-- Just Smitten and Hat Trick.

This young male-- Just Smitten was born November 24, 2021 after just 330 days gestation-- 20 lbs and fully baked! He was immediately up, nursing and posing within minutes.His primary color is fawn which will develop into a lovely grey coloration. His legs, belly, muzzle and tail are full of well-defined black spots.

"Smitty" is sired by champion stud, FTAF's Privateer-- A handsome, well-proven fawn male that throws the color / pattern of the female 80% plus of the time. He is the proven producer of champion offspring... and grand-offspring. He is out Crown Jewel of PVA and SHVN The Buccaneer (known for passing lingering fineness to his offspring), both of whom are multiple champion animals! Powerhouse pedigree including The Elite Maximus, Hemingway, Bobbie Ann on the dams side and Pot of Gold, Royal Inca Legend on his sire's side, no wonder he is such a gorgeous animal.

Just Smitten has presence and curb appeal galore! He thinks he is "all that" and I am just smitten with him. The pairing that produced Just Smitten was repeated and his full sibling-- Hat Trick was born on 11/19/22 (337 days).

Just Smitten is not for sale at this time, but is available for outside breedings once ready. He just bred his first female 1/17/23!
