~Apache’s Polka-hontis (Harlequin Appaloosa)

Huacaya Bred (Female) Light Fawn, Dark Rose Grey, True Black

Polka-hontis' sire, Apache, has a pedigree packed with outstanding appaloosas and harlequins. It is highly probable that Apache is homozygous meaning you do not have to breed him to another harlequin or appaloosa to get a good chance of producing an appaloosa harlequin offspring. A definite plus for those breeding for spots. Polka-hontis' dam, Forget Me Not, is the daughter ...

Ask a question
Suki's dam, Rare Gem Apache's Polka-hontis, was the smallest cria ever born on farm. Three years ago, Polka-hontis was born a month premature... some time during the night and was found in the morning limp, life-less and just 8.5 lbs. She rallied back and became a healthy, precocious young female. By late 2021, Polka-hontis had grown to a solid breeding weight / size and was very receptive with the boys. Champion FTAF's Privateer was selected for her maiden breeding. Privateer is an elite-fleeced, handsome male known for stamping his beautiful head style and uniform, fine fleece on his offspring. He is also a producer of repeated champion offspring.

So.... fast forward... 336 days. On 11/5/22, after a seemingly easy 30 minute labor, Polka-hontis, gave birth to our SECOND smallest ever cria-- Rare Gem Suki... just 9.5 lbs. Suki was fully baked, strong and healthy-- but tiny! She has confidence and personality galore! The other cria can't keep up with her.

Dam, Polka-hontis', color genotype is ee a1a2 and sire, FTAF's Privateer, is color genotype ee a2a2. So this pairing was a natural for creating a beautifully expressed harlequin appaloosa. As offspring Suki carries two black alleles-- one from each parent... it is highly likely that she will darken over time as is typically of harlequin appaloosas.

Polka-hontis, Suki's dam, is a great first time mom with ample milk and natural maternal instincts. Suki has gained ~ a half pound per day her first three weeks.
