That looks like a ghost bull that gets its hypo gene from the stillwater line. When mixed with the whitesides, the stillwater line causes the eyes to be red even though it's not an albino. Jonel Lopez had this happen several years ago as well. I've made these for the last two years now and am calling them "fire-eye" ghosts to differentiate them from the standard black eyed form (generic hypo whiteside). There are a couple of people that might be lurking on this forum that saw them at Daytona a couple weeks ago as I brought two pairs with me to the show.

Aside from the eye color, they are very different phenotypically from a standard ghost in that the colors have lots of pastels as they mature and every one that I've produced has been bald (no head pattern at all).

I'm curious about the "tiger" portion of your description. (Please don't take this the wrong way. Not trying to be rude, just wanting to clarify). K.J. Lodrigue and Don Soderberg were working with bullsnakes four or five years ago that had thin patterns and greatly exagerated saddle counts. These are what I know as Tiger bulls. I have produced a couple myself over the last couple of years and the saddle counts are insane (see pic of one of lasts years animals below). Is your animal related to this line? I'd love to hear about the pairing used to make your great looking animal.

Regardless, your animal is fantastic! Congrats on that beauty!

Take care.
