What do you get when you do a repeat breed of a black dam to a medium silver guy when they had a medium silver cria together the year prior? You get a surprising reminder that grey is unpredictable as the least likely suspected color pops out! As I watched the delivery, I thought wow an all white head, white feet, likely be a tux but as she came out solid white from head to toe - well almost, she has grey skin at feet, dark eyes and eyelids with liner.

We thought about naming her sterling or grey gardenia just in case she changed from white to grey. One of my mom's favorite flowers were gardenias and she was allergic to silver so had jewelry made of white gold, hence White Gold Gardenia.

Her grey sire is a 3/4 brother to Royal Steel and his biopsy revealed him to be one of the most uniform Ian Watt has tested in any color! Seriously read the write up on Estates Platinum Tabokia on the Howling Hill Farm site. Her grandsire Snowmass Nova Galaxy was a real stunner too. You will see why this girl isn't going anywhere. Besides awesome genetics, we think she has got an enormous dose of the cute factor. She caught the eye of different people for photography and even inspired a couple different paintings by artists early in life.

She has delivered very bright, true black (Blackest of black colors) two times in a row with different colored males one grey and one dark fawn. Last years cria had rather wild white face markings from the beautiful grey 4-Sight's Crawford. He was a real head turner!

We are very hesitant to offer her for sale given her genetics are beyond Montana. She recently bred to Granite Bay's Blue Silver. This would be a grandfather line-breed on US Steel himself. Since Blue is not quite 2 years old we will see if this breeding takes or not.
