Where to start? Tuff has
a gorgeous head. His face is very short from eye to muzzle. He has cute little hooked ears. His neck is long and strong, and it ties in to
his shoulder perfectly. He has adequate withers, a well muscled topline with a nice short back, and a strong loin. Tuff has a long,
powerful hip. He is heavily muscled through the gaskin and forearm. Tuff has strong hocks, short cannon bones, perfectly sloped pasterns
and extremely hardy feet. This stallion is very heavy bodied, with a lot of bone, and did I mention excellent feet?
Add to that, his
extremely docile temperment. Nothing upsets this horse. He is kind and gentle about everything.
And his movement? Tuff moves so
elegantly for such a massive horse, and I'm anxious to find out how he carries himself undersaddle.
Tuff had 30 days professional training undersaddle as a youngster. We have him back undersaddle and he is doing so well. Tuff is
highly respectful, and very responsive. He is proving to be a nice quiet riding horse. We are anxious to get him into the showpen so
everyone can see what we see in him!
We believe a stallion has to more than prove himself, but his foals have to prove his ability to produce as well. Tuff has a fair
amount of foals, 86% of them are colored. He is homozygous agouti, so he will never sire black babies. But Tuff produces more than just a
pretty color. He has sired several nice riding horses, and nice producers as well.
A TOUCH OF K.L.A.S.S PAINTS is home to one of
Tuff's best sons, Hank A Thief. "Romeo" is an extremely nice riding horse - no nonsense or silly business out of this horse. He loves
people, enjoys working, is extremely sane on the trail, and very quick in the arena. Sheza Dun Sugar is another of Tuff's fast foals, and
you can find one of his stunning trail riding daughters, Ginger Triple Bar, on the trails in Georgia. Heza Dun Tuff Duster is a big 16
hand son of Tuff's that is going undersaddle well.
Classy Paints own a great producing daughter of Tuff, Tuff Pearl Girl. They have
also retained a couple of his other daughters for their broodmare band (including some full sisters to our Romeo).
Tuff has several
sons producing foals with all the qualities of their sire. Fabulous heads, strong toplines, excellent bone, hardy feet, beautiful
movement, and outstanding dispositions.
Tuff's foals are known for their speed and athletic ability. They all tend to be level headed,
well mannered, very responsive, and extremely fond of people. If "pocket ponies" aren't your type, you may not like Tuff's
So, not only is Tuff a great horse himself. He is a great producer, and his offspring are producing equally well!
