*WITEZ II

4-1-1938 to 6-1966

Legendary Purebred Black-Bay Arabian Stallion!
Registration No. 003933
Height: n/a

The celebrated ancestry of this famous stallion contains the blood of his sire OFIR, who was the best son of the desert bred KUHAILAN HAIFI (imported from Arabia by Count Roman Sanguszko in 1931) and his famous broodmare dam, FEDERACJA, who was from the Janow Podlaski State Stud of Poland.

*WITEZ II was captured and served the German's at stud during Hitler's era. Then this marvelous stallion was regained along with the Royal Lipizzaners on April 28, 1945. He was shipped later that year to U.S.A. and stood as one of the most popular studs for the Army Remount Service. The government dropped the Remount Service in 1949 when mechanization made the horse obsolete as a war vehicle. At which time he became owned by Mr. Earle Hurlbutt and became a Champion show horse here in the U.S. Many people came to see this horse with "the look of eagles" that *Witez II possessed.

He is a legend, thanks to his earlier adventures and travels and his very successful run as a stud. His get include many National Champions and excel in halter, performance, and racing. His linage continues on as show ring winners and in performance, to this day.

Beautiful Purebred Black Arabian Stallion
Registration No. 540961
Height: N/A

SIR is a 28.1% *WITEZ II PRESERVATION stallion, proudly owned by the Pedersen family in WA.

What is Homozygous?

Each horse has a "base" coat color. They are either Red (e) or Black (E). The Red gene is always recessive to the Black gene. Chestnuts and shades of chestnuts, which are Red horses, are known to be homozygous for Red. This is because the chestnut gene is recessive, and thus requires two copies of the Red gene to show red as the base coat color.

On the other hand, Gray is NOT a base coat color. As example, we humans have our base hair color of black, brown, and blonde. Then with age we turn gray. So, mechanics of grey in a horse are the same, a horse that is homozygous or heterozygous for Red or Black can also be gray.

Red and BlackBlack is a dominant base coat color. Black can be either heterozygous (Ee) or homozygous (EE). Heterozygous blacks can either produce horses that are red or black in base coat color. Heterozygous black means the horse carries one Black gene and one Red gene. Since Black is dominant over Red, the horse appears with a black base coat color (black, bay, brown). When a heterozygous Black horse is bred to a Red horse, the resulting foal can be a Red horse. Two Heterozygous blacks can also produce a Red, if each passes on their red gene to the same foal. This is why breeding a bay to a bay can turn out a chestnut foal.

A homozygous Black can only produce black or shades thereof (black, bay, brown). The horses at Witez Black Arabians that have been tested as a Homozygous black, means there was no Red detected in their DNA. These horses can be assumed to be homozygous for black pigment (EE). They cannot have red foals, regardless of the color of the horse they are bred too. The basic color of the resulting offspring from our homozygous Blacks will be black, bay, or brown. Also, depending on genes at other color loci, the horse may be bay, buckskin, grulla, perlino, gray, or any of these colors with the white hair patterns overo, tobiano, roan or appaloosa, depending on the non homozygous color of the horse mated to by the homozygous Black. Grey mares have a 50/50 chance to produce a grey foal. However, all offspring will have the base colors as earlier mentioned.
