13x CC Brother, 5x CC Sire!
You are 1-degree-from-greatness in all directions in Flower's lineage! Flower has champions in her parentage, her grandparents, her great grandparents, all the way up! She has champion black genetics via her sire, Dark Secret. Her dam's sister has also produced a fantastic champion black sire, Black Maelstrom. It is undeniable that Flower should be bred to a black herdsire.
Her 5-time black color champion sire is Wolf Den's Dark Secret, whose 5 generations of black lineage includes the historically pivotal black herdsire Othello as his dam's sire. Just as impressive is Secret's sire, the well known Snowmass Nova's Dark Quest, son of the famous Snowmass Nova -- himself the son of Snowmass Peruvian Casanova (another pivotal male that has shaped many farms and breeding programs). That is a line of who's who in black color breeding programs!
Her light fawn dam, with black eyeliner and lips, is sired by Fossil Ridge's Rumaki -- a Royal Fawn champion son who also produced the 7-time champion dam Fossil Ridge's Special K. Flower's dam, Rising Hope, has her own lineage of power packed genetics. To give you more COLOR to think about, Special K produced by Secret the 13x BLACK color champion herdsire AutumnSun's Black Maelstrom! Black colors are hidden in Flower's dam's lineage, too!
Within her typey frame are the genetics of BLACK color greatness! She gives a peek at her black heritage with her dark eyeliner and lips. With her color potential she should work nicely in any dark color program -- black, grey or even appaloosa (as harlequin-appies often reproduce their looks when bred to dark-based fawns).
She is bred for a Fall 2022 cria, and is already sporting a deep round belly!
