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.
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
Finn has left for his education under saddle and is maturing beautifully. His first foal is here (Aug 24) and he is lovely!
Finn will be aimed for the Stallion Testing in 2015 and will be campaigned the summer of 2015 in eventing. Updates to follow on the website (as well as pics of his first foal of course).
