The Real Deal is the Real Deal.  He was the only dun gypsy stallion in the country when we purchased him.  Dealer, as we call him, came from the Coats in England.  The dun coloring is a dominant color factor so if it is there, it will show.  It lightens the body color and pushes the base color to the edges (mane, tail and lower legs).   It also adds a solid, base color stripe down the spine from mane to tail.  Dealer is a black based dun, or grullo, but he also carries a red gene.  We do not stand Dealer to outside mares but sell offspring and mares bred to him.   We are excited to see the dun color added to US gypsy herds and hope that all dun enthusiasts will work to be sure that top quality Gypsy Vanner characteristics also come with the color.   To top it all off Dealer is in the main studbook of the GVHS.  Now with several years of foals on the ground Dealer is proving to be a sire of quality not just color. So far we have named his offspring with a card planing term so look at SSFR Double Down and SSFR Broadway and SSFR Deal Me In, to see some of his non-dun offspring.  He covered Bindi and Sazerac for 2018 foals.  We also used 2 of his sons SSFR Deuce is Wild and SSFR Lucky Number Seven in 2017 so Dealer will be a grandsire in 2018 as well. 1/18
