Blackshadow Apparition ~ Licensed Dales Pony Society Stallion

Blackshadow Apparition AKA "Percey" was bred by Blackshadow Dales Pony Stud in western NY.  If you are not familiar with the breed follow links for the history of the breed.  Percey is true to his breed characteristics known for it's strength, hardiness, stamina, courage, intelligence and good disposition.  He is primarily my driving pony and I hope to be competing with him by next year.  He is 14hh and four years old.  Their are roughly 250 Dales in North America and fewer than 3000 world wide.  This puts them on the "critical" list by both the Rare Breeds Survival Trust in the UK and the Livestock Conservancy in the US.

Contact me if you have a Dales Pony mare or would like to cross with your mare for a part bred.
