*Seekers Warrior ICHO-94-D; ABC-1533
color gene code: Aa, Ee, Dd; KRT25/n heterozygous curly
This stallion was incredibly prepotent, he upgraded mares and imprinted foals with increased size & quality. He produced foal after high qualify foal, improved over their dams in almost all cases. Apparently he'd inherited no discernible Damele genetics from his sire, either phenotypic or genotypic, with many years of impressive foal crops. His dam was a red dun curly mare, that absolutely took one's breath away. Her QH sire must have been phenomenal--she was by far Miss Berndt Warriors finest daughter. We never got a good shot of Warriors Berndt Sue, but she put most QH mares to shame... Evidently, Seekers Warrior inherited most of his genetics from her, and passed a lot of that forward. His temperament and that of his foals, were what I compare the whole breed to. ~Donna Grace Vickery (ICHO founder), Crow Country Curly Horses, Crow Reservation, Montana.
