Tuff" is an exceptional example of the foundation appaloosa of days gone by . He is a 93% foundation-bred, homozygous black and white appaloosa stallion, is ApHC-registered, and is International Colored Appaloosa Association (ICAA), Sundance 500 , and Foundation Appaloosa Horse Registry (FAHR) eligible. His pedigree boasts multiple World and National ApHC champions, from a time when horses not only haltered, but also performed! We believe "Tuff" possesses the perfect combination of athleticism, attitude, and looks to help build a great appaloosa as intended from past bloodlines. **His first foal, a black stud colt has been successfully shown in halter and in-hand classes by a teenage girl, earning second place in an open class behind a Cleveland Bay. (see second photo) **His second foal is is a dark bay snowflake/roan with heavy mottling. His third foal is a gorgeous stud colt, black with blanket (also for sale). His fourth foal is a black with sclera stud colt.
