We're proud to offer a small selection of Appaloosa and Sportaloosa horses for sale, to approved homes. Enquiries, inspection and vet checks on all horses are always welcome.
Many years ago, Kim and Dave Utke of the Sheldak Ranch in North Dakota said in an interview with the Appaloosa Journal that the best advice they'd had from a old time breeder was to buy the best horses they could possibly afford.
And, to look for older stallions who could make an amazing contribution but had passed their peak in price.
Now, we're offering the rising 18 year old Skip's Supreme to an ambitious breeder who will provide him with an outstanding home, quality mares, lots of love and the best of care.
Skip has been amazing for Sparkling Acres and we love him fiercely so we hope you'll understand that we'll be very picky about his new owner.
Among the things we love most about Skip is that he's huge but balanced. Properly balanced, with an uphill frame, bone and hooves to support his weight and real athletic ability.
If you've ever watched a 'halter' stallion move, you'll know what we mean.
And, he's a dude. Just a lovely chap who loves a fuss, is laid back and easy to handle.
Breeds in hand, by collected, chilled semen and has run with mares.
Priced to be affordable in NZ or to export back to Australia.
$15,000 including GST to a dedicated breeder of quality horses. That price is in NZD and if exported, the GST portion will not apply.
We've invested heavily in the best quality Appaloosa mares we could find. Mares with a particular athletic ability, movement, beauty and ability to reproduce their own best qualities.
This 2005 grulla mare with frosting is one of them.
She's one of just 2 Mighty Storm Song (USA) daughters in NZ.
A phenomenal producing mare, her progeny are exceptionally quiet, sweet natured and eager to please. Her eldest (by Cayuse A Grand Illusion) is jumping up a storm in Australia, her youngest (by Skip's Supreme) is staying right here.
One of the last of the super pairing of Mighty Storm Song with the Mr Jessie James (QH - USA) mare Cayuse Mighty McJames, 'Scratchy' is a full sister to the very successful Australian sires Cayuse Bradford and Cayuse Mighty Windstorm.
Homozygous for black and dun, heterozygous for Lp, N/N for HYPP, Herda and GBED. Stands 15.1hh.
Only to the very best of breeding homes and for sale as we're keeping her 2017 filly by Skip. Can be bred to either of our stallions at a fraction of their stud fee.
$7,500 including GST.
