1999 Blue Roan , Black Spotted, Near Leopard Appaloosa Stallion
Zeke was our original stallion and did a wonderful job for us both in color production and conformation. He produced over 110 registered foals as of 2020, 86% of them are colored!. No foal was ever born without at least some facial or leg white , even in the absence of appaloosa pattern. Zeke was l5 hands and 1000 pounds. He was EE aa, homozygous for the black gene and did not produce chestnut/sorrel foals. Zeke's beautiful head, intelligence, color ,and muscular build were gifts he passed on to his foals.
In early 2021, Zeke slowly became crippled by arthritis and apparently acquired EPM as well. One day when he could not rise.. we had to put him to rest. It was a sad day that Zeke left us too early, but after a job well done.
