Gypsy Vanner Stallion, Cobalt

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”

Cobalt, Laurel Highland Highschool’s Mascot!

Local 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!!
