Mr. Unusual is the ONLY horse of his kind standing at stud for 2014.
What is he? He is a homozygous pearl overo.
What the heck is that?
The pearl dilution is newly recognized and is only found in the Barlink Macho Man line of APHA (and sometimes also AQHA) registered horses, and also in Andalusians/ Lusitanos. This gene is RECESSIVE, so when a horse only has one copy, it does not show. But when there are two copies you get a brilliant color and sheen! ALSO, pearl interacts with cream, to get something that looks like a cremello/perlino only with brilliant green eyes. So with this stallion, a cremello/perlino/smokey cream mare is 100% guarenteed to produce an amazingly colored horse, who is worth big money to boot, and a Smokey black/buckskin/palomino mare is 50% likely to do the same.
~Also, Mr. Unusual is OLWS positive, so when crossed to another frame overo there is a 25% chance a lethal white foal will be produced, so please do not ask to breed these mares to him and save yourself a year of worry and potential heartbreak.
~Mr. Unusual is also HYPP, HERDA, MH, PSSM, GBED, and Splash 1,2, and 3 N/N!!!!
On top of a pretty and rare color, he has a phenomenal disposition and absolute to die for conformation! He has an extremely sought after topline, and a hip that he stamps on all of his foals, that could clean up any mare's unforgiving hip. Lots of power, and well put together.
His personality is one of a goof-ball, but gentle and willing to do it all. He had not been broke to ride before we got him, so we broke him out at 10 years old! He is pretty lazy and relaxed, and gave us no trouble at all.
His foals get all of the best from him. One is currently 5 years old and used in 4-H by a little girl. Others have been serious contenders for the APHA world show.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email! He is currently booking for shipped semen and for live cover for the 2014 season, and we are offering the first 30 days of mare care free. Also, he is located in Northeastern Missouri.
