My beautiful Arctic Ice;

please click on the image for better view.
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
| Robert Frost |


Name: Arctic Ice of Winterfell.
Nickname: Ice.
Gender: stallion.
Breed: Iiowa.
Origin: norway.
Height: 161 cm
Age: 4 yo.
Dam: starter.
Sire: starter.
Discipline: Allround.
Color: Blue roan Sabino.
Markings: three w/socks & blaze.
Genotype: Ee/Rnrn/Sb1 


Ice was born during the cold winter month in January. He was really weak and we did not believe he would survive the night. But he proved us all wrong. By the morning the foal was running around, free as ever. He would even rear high up to show us all how wrong we were. He grew bigger and stronger for each year that passed and already by the age of 4 he's as big as his father. Because of his strong hind legs I think he will become a great eventer, or show jumper for that matter. I can't wait for this wonderful boy's future.


Ice is a sweet gentleman. And when you ask for it, he will show you just how much he's capable of, and that is pretty much anything. He loves to carry his tail high and put on a big show in the arena. He takes long, powerful strides and loves all the attention he gets.

Breeding information;

if you want a foal from this boy, send me a note with your mare! 
You can decide if you want me to design the foal. It can't be too much alike

Blue roan is black + roan. This depends if he's homozygous (EE) black or heterozygous (Ee) black. If he's heterozygous, his foals have a 50% chance of inheriting chestnut (e) from him, and a 50% chance of inheriting black (E).
As for roan...that one's tricky, because some people think homozygous (RnRn) is lethal (similar to lethal white with homozygous overo). Either way, it would be at least Rnrn, and if you think that for your purposes homozygous roan isn't lethal, it could be RnRn.

Hope this helps! ^-^

Also, with the pinto markings (blue eyes are usually splash, which is Spl), he could be tobiano (considering the leg markings). That's also up to you and your preferences, though.

omg, thank you so much! ~ :heart:
so his genetics would be; Ee Rnrn Spl?
hahha omg I'm so bad at this!

Yes, and he could be either tobiano (which puts markings on the legs first but not on the face) or sabino (more likely because of the face marking and leg markings, as well as the belly spot). Sabino also causes blue eyes, but that's usually only when the white marking extends to the eyes, which is why I mentioned splash. Sabino is usually written as Sb.… This might be useful for you. If you click the << button at the bottom, it will take you through an introduction of each gene and what colors it produces. You can also experiment with the different colors to find what you're looking for. The button in the top right corner describes the color that's shown at the moment, so that's also useful. :D
