Darkest Design

 Sold to Denice in Nebraska

2005 STALLION  June 7, 2005 Smokey Black, small white star. This colt appears to have Appaloosa characteristics, so he probably will get some mottling or small spots. He has been DNA tested and is homozygous black and carries one cream gene. This means if bred to bay mares there is a 50% chance of him passing on his cream gene and producing buckskins. His sire is the APPROVED Friesian stallion Mystic Valley's Dante, who is 16.1 hands tall. This colt is very friendly. He should mature to over 16. hands. He has a lovely gold tone to his coat color. You are not looking at sun bleaching, this is the effect of the cream gene. He is handled daily.  A nicer head is hard to find. He is a very nice mover.


Darkest had a number of foals born  in 2009.
