I am leasing a bay pure Polish mare for this year, with the option of leasing her again after she foals. If that happens, I would like to breed her for a pure Polish foal (my stallion is 75% Polish). I do NOT want a homozygous agouti foal-so bays are out of the question because it is to much of a risk.
I could probably tolerate a homozygous agouti foal as long as the foal wasn't also homozygous black. I will be using this foal in my breeding program and it somewhat ruins the surprise of color when your only option is bay-LOL.
I also prefer no grays...my current stallion is already gray so I am looking for a different color. However, sometimes I can be persuaded on gray. After all...its a gamble of a 50% chance of getting gray as long as the stallion isn't homozygous gray.
So...I am looking for a chestnut (non-agouti preferably) pure polish stallion or a black pure polish stallion.
I am in LOVE with Opus One+ but fear he is no longer with us (although Datasource doesn't have him listed as deceased). Opus One+'s sire, AAF Kaset+ is a closely related to my stallion through their shared damlines of Kasta, and they also share *Aladdinn. Opus One+ - or any non-agouti son of AAF Kaset+ would DEFINITELY be something I am interested in crossing on this mare.
I also quite like the stallion Czersk by Goliat but his owners are not shipping semen and since I live in MI, I am not willing to haul to Pennsylvania for live cover.
I have also looked into Elikzer by Ganges, but both his parents are bay so I worry he is homozygous agouti. I emailed his owners to see if they knew his agouti status and they have not responded for whatever reason.
The mare is a beautiful daughter of Edukt and out of a Negatraz daughter. She herself may be homozygous agouti, I have to test her when I bring her home for that and her black status.
