*Stag Creek Solen is our second colt from Zydeco and I think this was again a promising match with a most likely homozygous for curl mare - *Snowfox. And *Solen is a most fabulous bucksin tobiano, purebred Curly with just the most outstanding disposition - what else could we have expected from our beloved *Snowfox! He is covered in dense, long curl and has very long fetlock feathering, even at his young age - something that can be lost when outcrossing to breeds that do not have feathering. His long eyelashes tell a tale that he will someday have the ability to woo the girls, and I just love his freindly, sweet personality.
*Solen gets his name from a tiny town in Sioux County, North Dakota in the United States and on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation. Population of 83. Solen was founded in 1910 along a Northern Pacific Railway branch line that ran from Mandan to Mott. The name comes from Mary Louise Van Solen, a pioneer settler who was the first schoolteacher on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation. A very appropriate name I believe, given his Standing Rock heritage and also in honoring a gentleman from North Dakota that was responsible for many of the Curlies in his pedigree - Joe Mead.
