• Why is it so expensive to breed a pinto mare to Larz?      Larz is homozygous pinto which means when bred to a pinto mare your chances are good of getting a homozygous pinto filly/mare or homozygous pinto colt/stallion.  The value of a homozygous foal is much great than the value of a heterozygous foal.  

  • Where is Larz Registered and where can I register his foals?  Larz is registered Barockpinto Studbook, his foals can be too.  He has yet to be inspected for approval, but will be in the future, his quality is undeniable and speaks for itself.

  • What  does a barockpinto foal sell for?  All Larz's foals will be pinto when bred to a quality mare friesian or warmblood they should have good value.  Pinto foals from my program have sold from $18,500 to $22,500 prior to weaning.  If you get a homozygous foal with good breeding it would be more.  However if bred to a more common mare thats not top quality you can expect the foal to be of lesser quality and worth quite a bit less.  You must really look at the quality of the mare when breeding, not just the stallion.  Value depends on quality of the foal.

  • What are my odds of having a homozygous foal when I breed my pinto mare?  Please see animal genetics coat calculator, this will also answer breeding mares of different  colors what you will end up with.  Lars is black tobiano,  Homozygous pinto EE and homozygous black TT  link at right.                          https://www.animalgenetics.us/equine/ccalculator1.asp

  • What discipline would the foal be suitable for?  While I bred for dressage Larz offspring would be suitable for a variety of disciplines.  The main criteria for my breeding program is and always will be Amateur friendly horses that are competitive in the dressage ring but can be ridden and enjoyed by all.  Trail ride one day dressage ring the next.
