Grullo Stallion


Bueno Blue Badger


Bueno Blue Badger is a 2000 AQHA/FQHA 96% Foundation bred Smokey Grullo Stallion and is homozygous for the black gene so he will never throw a red based foal.  He also carries a creme gene and, of course, dun factor.  He is a Smokey black dun (Grullo), which he consistently throws to his beautiful, correct foals along with great dispositions, and trainable, willing minds.  Color is just the icing on the cake.  He stands just under 15 hh.

A grullo (prounounced "grew-yo") colored horse is a black horse with dun factor.  Dun factor simply dilutes coat color and adds a dorsal stripe and leg barring and usually some darker "webbing" at withers and on forhead.  Bueno Blue Badger (Blue) is a Smokey Grullo so he has a cream gene making his coat color diluted even further.  He is homozygous for black (EE) so he cannot throw a red-based foal, making his offspring mostly blacks and grullos (a bay/dun is possible only if the mare has black points but the cross could also produce a buckskin or buckskin/dun since he carries the cream and dun genes too, Bay would be least likely).  If your sorrel/chestnut mare has no hidden Agouti (the black points gene) then there is no possibility of Bay. You will only get a Smokey Grullo, Grullo, Smokey Black, or Black.  You will never get a red foal when breeding your mare to "Blue".

Blue is a Smokey Grullo with no white markings and loads of Dun factor markings and he is UC Davis tested to be homozygous black. He also carries a creme gene which is what makes him a Smokey Grullo and not just a Grullo. He will produce Grullo, Smokey Grullo, Dunskin, Zebra Dun, Smokey Black, Black, Bay, Buckskin as well as the possibility of a Smokey Creme foal (a black horse with 2 copies of the cream gene).  He has also been producing a high percentage of dun factor in his foals though he only carries one copy of the dun gene.

Blue has the kindest heart. He is a true gentleman in every way. He has only been used for breeding, due to an injury as a youngster but he is 100% sound now and is a nice fluid mover with tons of athletic ability.

He is standing at stud here at
The Lewis Ranch Stallion Station for a stud fee of $600 with a $50 booking fee that goes toward that stud fee via live cover, on farm insemination, or cooled or frozen shipped semen.  Shipping Cooled semen to your mare is still only $200 this year and mare care is only $8/day for a dry mare and $10/day for a wet mare (with a foal at her side) if your mare comes to the ranch for breeding.

Blue carries those awesome Poco Bueno bloodlines and like all my Poco Bueno bred stallions, he has been tested for HERDA and is negative so he is safe to breed your Poco Bueno (or any mare) to .  He has also tested negative, quarantined and vaccinated for EVA (Equine Viral Arteritis) which makes him safe to accept shipped semen from as well. 

We offer Early Bird Discounts of $50 off the stud fee when booked by January 1st each year.  We also offer an additional $50 off each stud fee when booking multiple mares or referring a friend.  Mares can be booked to different stallions and each mare/mare owner gets the discounts.
