ELECTRUM'S FIRST FOALS HAVE ARRIVED! See Broodmares page.
Definition of Electrum : A naturally occurring alloy of silver and gold. The earliest coins of ancient Asia Minor and many Byzantine issues were struck in this metal.
Electrum is a quality young stallion standing in his first season at stud 2010.
He is correct and big boned with a good straight action and a kind and trainable temperament.
He measures just over 16.2hh (Jan 2011) and we expect him to reach approximately 16.3hh at maturity.
From a prolific winning Hunter breeding family in the US he has all the credentials to be a successful Sporthorse in the UK and also sire of Sporthorses and hopefully Racehorses!
He has been backed lightly at the beginning of 2011 before the covering season and we plan to combine his Competition career with his stud duties when permitted.

His future career will be focused as an Event horse/Sporthorse.
Electrum has been DNA colour genetic tested by UC Davis to be e/e, A/A, Cr/Cr. Chestnut mares crossed to him will produce 100% Palomino offspring; homozygous bay or black mares will produce 100% buckskin foals, by him; heterozygous bay or black mares, will produce 50% Buckskin/50% Palomino offspring when bred to him. Being homozygous for Agouti he will not throw Smokey Black.
He will not throw 'blue eyes' with solid colour mares. Only double dilutes (two copies of the cream gene)eg. cremello, perlino have 'blue eyes'.... palominos and buckskins have dark eyes.
