Color By Texas (Texas) is a chestnut/tobiano. His sire is Texas Whistler, who goes back to "Long Tall Texan". Long Tall Texan was retired as a race horse at 11 years old. He was then introduced to the show arena where he was very successful, earning six Grand Champions and two Reserve Grand Champions. He earned points in Halter, Hunter Under Saddle, Barrel Racing, Calf Roping, Hunter Hack, Pole Bending, Western Pleasure and Western Riding. He is the sire of ROM earners and APHA champions.
Texas' dam, My Classy Countessa, is a great-granddaughter of 9-time Grand, two-time Reserve Champion Sir Quincy Dan.
Color By Texas stands 15.1hh and weighs approximately 1,100 lbs. He puts a lot of bone on his foals, a tiny ear, and a great disposition. Texas is a real gentleman to his ladies. He is broke to ride both western and English, and also drives. He has been worked on cattle and seems to enjoy the challenge of chasing down a cow! Texas has a quiet manner, and is very quick to learn. He has been worked in the woods with snow past his knees, pulling out downed brush and limbs. He is "voice controlled, " very smooth gaited and makes fluid transitions.
