    Default Newly imported perlino Connemara colt from Ireland!!

    Well, it took 6 years of looking, but I finally got my colt.

    My I please introduce FIONTAR MAC TIER, a 2011 no grey, double dilute (perlino) Connemara by Maumturk Oliver out of Rossaveal Lady (Frederiksminde Hazy Match). Finn stands 14.1hh and is coming 2 at the end of April. He is currently the only DD Connemara in all of North America (that I am aware of) that is eligible for full registration and whose offspring will be fully registered Connemaras.

    He is the WHOLE package. Bloodlines, conformation, movement.

    Hopefully he will be standing in 2015 after showing on the line and getting started under saddle.

    http://muskokalakesconnemaras.com/news You can see some pics here, but I will be getting some professional shots done when he regains the weight he lost on his trip as well as sheds out

    Cheers all and WELCOME FINN!!!

    He looks absolutely lovely! Congratulations!

    Beginner color question from a lurker to the Breeding board—your website indicates his perlino coloring will translate to buckskin offspring. What color would the mare have to be? Chestnut?

    He will always pass a cream gene with a black base so you will only get buckskin (and perhaps smokey black?) regardless of the colour of the mare. Except if she's grey then there's at least a 50% chance of the foal going grey.

    I am getting him tested further to see what his base is... Depending on the colour of mare and his agouti status etc he can potentially help with any of the dilute colours. Once I know what he carries (other than no grey!) I can better give folks an idea
