Description: “Woody” is a tall and athletic Appaloosa stallion.
He was started under saddle late in his 4 year old year due to continued growth. He is a friendly, quiet and affectionate stallion who is usually mistaken for
a gelding. He adores children and takes in as much attention as you are willing to dole out. He is a nice
combination of Appaloosa and Thoroughbred traits which have produced a very competitively put together Appaloosa Sport
Horse. He has a good neck set, a well muscled hind end, a strong topline on a short back with very good saddle position.
He has uphill movement with good reach, impulsion and suspension. He is attentive to his handlers and
trainers, learns quickly and tries his best to please regardless of the environment and distractions. He is easy
to handle and quiet in both turnout and under saddle work, even in close proximity of mares. With his
work ethic, movement and willing temperment we expect Woody to excel in dressage and perhaps later in eventing.
Woody is a beautiful copper bay with
a large blanket with spots to the withers and lightning marks containing black spots on all four legs and a star.
He has maintained this color and is not roaning out. You can compare photos here taken at 15 months and 6
years of age. Neither of his parents are grey and there is no sign of hidden gray in his Appaloosa pedigree.
Woody has all appaloosa characteristics including white sclera around the eyes, mottling, and striped hooves. He
has a normal thickness, long mane and tail to the fetlocks, as both of his parents have. This handsome package is topped
off by a pretty head which is slightly dished and takes a cob size bridle.
Training: Woody began
his dressage training with Silvia Geyer at KD Trakehners in Watertown, WI in May 2010. He will be shown under saddle in USDF Region 2 beginning Summer 2010.
Showing: Woody will be shown in USDF Dressage Sport Horse Breeding Classes beginning Winter/Spring
2010 and then will begin showing under saddle (USDF) later in the Summer.
February 14, 2010
Dixie Gulf Open Dressage USDF - Dressage Sport Horse Breeding, Mature Stallions 6 years and older - 72.65% under
USEF "R" Dressage and "r" DSHB judge Janine Malone. Woody was the only mature stallion shown
however he did receive a very good score despite that this was his first experience at a show and being in an indoor arena
and was understandably a little nervous. We received several compliments on his manners and temperment while in the
July 4, 2010 Silverwood Dressage USDF - With only 7 weeks of dressage training under his
belt, Woody was introduced to showing under saddle and received a high score of 70.5% in Introductory Level, Test B under
USEF "S" judge Thomas Poulin. Again, we had many compliments on the show grounds about Woody's good
manners and temperment. We are looking forward to seeing what he can do at Training Level for his next show. Many
thanks to Silvia Geyer, Woody's trainer and rider, for doing such an excellent job with our boy.
August 14-15, 2010 Silverwood Dressage USDF - With 3 months of training and conditioning, Woody
began showing at Training Level 1 & 2 under his trainer, Silvia Geyer. He scored very competitively in the
low to mid 60's under the very tough USEF "S" judge Gail Hoff-Carmona. Again, we received many compliments from multiple
attendees regarding his stellar temperment which makes him stand out amongst even well mannered competition stallions.
For more detailed information about his scores please contact us.
January 2011 - Woody is returning to Alabama where he will continue his training and show career in
USDF Region 3. He will be available for breeding with fresh cooled shipped semen beginning January 17, 2011.

Color Genetics: Woody is LP/lp (heterozygous) for
the leopard complex which causes Appaloosa characteristics (mottling, white sclera, striped hooves) and allows color expression
in the presence of any major pattern gene (PATN). Until the DNA testing for Appaloosa color genetics becomes available
we will not know how many different types of PATN he carries but he obviously carries at least one PATN because he was born
with a large spotted blanket. Woody has the capability to throw foals with Appaloosa characteristics/color 50%
of the time when bred to non-Appaloosa mares. When bred to Appaloosa mares this probability will increase. And
if bred to homozygous mares (snow caps, few spots/white born) the foal is certain to have Appaloosa characteristics with a
50% chance of being homozygous and 50% chance of being heterozygous for LP. Base color wise, Woody is E/e, A/a - heterozygous
for black and heterozygous for the agouti gene which makes a black horse a bay.
Hollywood Hot Spot is one of the few colored ApHC registered stallions currently available for breeding in the U.S.
that is actively going under saddle and has the size, temperment, conformation and movement to be competitive in dressage
and eventing. He is also an excellent outcross for your Appaloosa mares with Waps Spot 2 or Chocklate
Confetti bloodlines. There is no close-up QH and there is no "Impressive" in his pedigree (No
chance of HYPP).
We are offering Woody at stud to the public for $800 ($200 booking fee included) for
fresh shipped semen. Collection and shipping fees are payable directly to the collection facility - currently at $225 per
