Sire: Colonels Shorty (by Commanchie Shorty imp)
Dam: Sonita’s Tika (by Sonita’s Rhondo)
Leo will be used over some of our mares this season (2015), he will not be at public stud in 2015.
Leo is a purebred 2013 QH colt, by Colonels Shorty, and out of the well performed Sonitas Rhondo mare Sonitas Tika. Leo is a future stud colt for us, he will challenge and draft as a 3 year old.
Leo is a Cremello, which means he carries two dilute genes from his parents, and he will produce 100% dilute (palomino/buckskin/smokey cream/smokey black) working horses for us. We will be campaigning him in challenging and campdrafting in the future once he is started under saddle as a two year old.
I bought this little colt at a week old to be a future stallion for us along side Dualin Pepto and Royalle Imprint. Leo carries very strong cutting and cattle working lines top and bottom and we are positive he will complement our stud beautifully. Our Thanks Clandella QH stud for selling us this lovely colt, cant wait to get him under saddle.
Leo is out of the lovely palomino QH mare Sonita’s Tika, who is sired by the great imported stallion Sonita’s Rhondo imp. Sonita’s Rhondo sired many champions in the reining, rodeo and campdraft performance arenas and appears in many great performance QH pedigrees in Australia today. Sonitas Rondo (imp) is Palomino son of a NCHA World Champion and Brother of NCHA World Champion. Full Brothers and Sisters have won over $100,000.00
Leo has a very strong cattle working pedigree, he is a very soft young horse to work with, has a lovely kind gentle nature, and is a joy to own. He is naturally a very soft in the face horse, and carries himself in a very balanced and athletic way. Leo has a great future in performance planned for him, but for now he will simply be left to grow and mature with our other weanlings out at pasture.
