After purchasing several LWO mares in the Spring of 2015 I was on the search for the perfect LWO negative stallion to complement them. Finally fate lead me to this wonderful boy. And so "Jax" joined the farm as a yearling in the Spring of 2015. He was bred by Julia Nestlerode in Pennsylvania. His beautiful sabino and splash pattern accompanied with an impressive pedigree make him the perfect match for our frame mares. He was lab tested by Animal Genetics and is negative for the frame gene (LWO), negative for cream and silver, heterozygous sabino, heterozygous splash, homozygous black, and not an agouti carrier. I could not ask for a better combination of conformation, pedigree, personality, and color!
On July 3, 2016 Jax was attacked by a neighbors dog. It was a long road to recovery which included surgery at Oregon State University Veterinary Hospital. He will always have scarring on his face, but he proved what an amazing horse he is. Definately the temperament I want in a horse, and we are anxiously awaiting his first babies in Spring 2017.
