The offspring resulting from the 2011 Kingsville x Stillwater crosses displayed a plethora of colors, going from the brightest yellows through the deepest reds, most of them somewhere in between. It took several months before I dared to select my future breeders, except for this one particularly handsome specimen which drew my attention from day one. Unlike the others, it didn’t take months before his colors really started to surface. In fact, this one already displayed the brightest, deepest red from day one.

Again, I really didn’t give it that much thought at the time.

Besides this one particularly beautiful (male) specimen, a very nice bright red female was selected as his future mate. Also, another pair from the yellow side of the spectrum was selected, mostly for back up reasons. This felt a little redundant at the time, but now I’m glad I did.

Anyway, as these four hold backs matured, their colors enveloped more and more, especially with the above mentioned particularly attractive specimen. In fact, it really didn’t take him that much time, until his red color actually became brighter and deeper than my finest Kingsville Red Bull. Also, it’s belly turned out to be quite red as well, which is quite unusual, if not unprecedented.
