Lil’ Lex

We are very proud to share this little colt we call “Lil Lex”.  His momma is our favorite miniature horse mare (April who in 2012 gifted us with “Tiny Colt”) and his poppa is our much loved “Lex” AKA BoHo’s Cold Fusion, a 13 hand tall gypsy cob.  Lil Lex is thus full brother to our wonderful little cobby filly, Desiderata.  We definitely feel he has taken more after his daddy and we expect him to mature about 11 hands.   We feel he is worth consideration for breeding quality and offer him for a very reasonable investment  of $1000 plus breeding rights, to someone who will help further the mini gypsy effort here in USA.  The early  photos below  are from the Illinois Horse Fair where in March 2012 he helped promote our farm on Stallion Row.  In March he was a fuzzy baby yearling pony, being born in April 2011.  Summer shed out pictures were taken in July 2012.

He is two years old in 2013 and we sent in for color DNA this spring; we had thought he was silver dapple having totally white mane and tail and a very light roany looking color in his markings.  Well, we found nothing interesting; verified he can simply offer black, red, tobiano genes; his roaning and light color must be some kind of sabino effect or other yet unidentified kind of modifier.  I still like him, he is maturing into a very nice pony.
