We're very excited to have added an own son of Pale Face Dunnit to our stallion rooster. Dig The Applause aka Digger is a 2018 AQHA/APHA Palomino Splash stallion, 7 panel N/N. Beyond being gorgeous, he has an amazing temperament and is a very talented horse. Dig The Applause is an NRHA money earner with very limited showing due to no fault of his own. He proved that he could be successfully trained/shown and we were anxious to get him home to add his bloodlines to our breeding program. Digger was trained and shown under the care of Schmersal Reining horses in Scottsdale Arizona. He has an amazing mind and is a great horse to work with. We can't wait to see all of the offspring he'll produce for us in the years to come!
