What color is he
again? That's the question we get most often...no
he is not white! He is genetically Black!!!
He was tested by UC Davis and is homozygous,
so all foals will be Black and White (either
much desired Blagdons or Tobiano) or Black.
His color is officially called "Maximum
Sabino or Blue Sabino". In other words,
Cobalt has the most amount of white as a
blagdon horse can! The reproduction possibilities
are almost endless with this stallion!
When you are up close,
he has black spots on his skin and his coat,
mane and tail look "salt and pepper"
Laurel Highland Highschool's Mascot!
Highschool, Laurel Highlands Mustangs, were
in search of a mascot and asked Old Mill
Farm if we would be willing to "lend"
them one. OK, so Cobalt isn't a Mustang...but
he was up to the task. :) (In his defense,
it was raining and very muddy out!) Look
for more pictures in the near future!!

Affaire in Ohio, 2006
This was Cobalt's

4 Breed Demos under saddle! He was an amazing
representative for the breed. We are very
proud of this young boy!
