Many years ago, Kim and Dave Utke of the Sheldak Ranch in North Dakota said in an interview with the Appaloosa Journal that the best advice they'd had from a old time breeder was to buy the best horses they could possibly afford.
And, to look for older stallions who could make an amazing contribution but had passed their peak in price.
Now, we're offering the rising 18 year old Skip's Supreme to an ambitious breeder who will provide him with an outstanding home, quality mares, lots of love and the best of care.
Skip has been amazing for Sparkling Acres and we love him fiercely so we hope you'll understand that we'll be very picky about his new owner.
Among the things we love most about Skip is that he's huge but balanced. Properly balanced, with an uphill frame, bone and hooves to support his weight and real athletic ability.
If you've ever watched a 'halter' stallion move and been disappointed that the hype doesn't match the reality, you'll know what we mean and why it's so important to put the horse above the show results.
And, he's a dude. Just a lovely chap who loves a fuss, is laid back and easy to handle.
Breeds in hand, by collected, chilled semen and has run with mares.
