|Amazing how much this colt resembles his sire Elaan.
"Bucky", as my children affectionately insist on calling him, is the next step in our dilute Arabian breeding program.
I was heartbroken when we lost his sire to an unfortunate accident and between that and the failing economy was just ready
to throw in the towel. Much has happened over the last few years but Bucky has returned home and I couldn't be happier.
He is becoming the spitting image of his sire- only better. He has an outstanding disposition (a trait that is very strong
in this bloodline) and tolerates a lot- even when the handling causes him significant discomfort. He is absolutely gorgeous
and looks like he will be fairly tall like his sire, Elaan. Bucky's dam is TOF Khedance- a direct daughter of Khemosabi! His
sire line goes back to our foundation stallion Sophira's Amir and our palomino 7/8 Arabian The Golden Rocket- who is the beginning
of my Dilute Arabian program. So I have decided to keep Bucky and continue on breeding quality palomino, buckskin, cremello
and perlino high percentage Part Arabians. Bucky is ready to take his place as the "heir apparent". He has grown into
the stallion we expected him to be, he will be offered at stud 2013 to select mares Private Treaty.
