Kate has her red dun program and I wanted a sorrel skewbald (red paint) program.  With a homozygous red base, all other colors in horses can be easily added.  We had looked and looked for a second stallion to compliment Whiskey and our traditional mares.   I had pretty much given up, but on our 34th wedding anniversary, I was taken to the barn to meet my present.  Kate and Doug had found him, Sahlem’s Country Optimus Prime!  Kate knew how much I liked Prime Time,  I had gone to seem him but had returned home from the Sahlems with Whiskey, Sahlem’s Country Maker’s Mark instead.  When this promising, sorrel paint son of Prime Time’s was offered for sale, she contacted the Sahlems again. This beautifully balanced, sorrel paint traditional Gypsy Vanner stallion combines Lenny’s Horse and Lion King bloodlines.  We could not be more pleased with how he has grown.  Prime rides and is green broke to drive.  His first babies are a credit to him.  We are retaining his 2018 filly SSFR Elita One, out of Sovereign, for our program and are excited to see more Prime foals.     4/20
