This November Larry Goldfarb and his wife and I welcome a new member to the Goldfarb family when he entered into the horse world. Barbarito our first foal was born. Barbarito is a pure breed Pervian Pasos. Barbarito coloring is buckskin also known as dune
Both dun & buckskin can be a golden colored body with a black mane, tail & legs. The body color can range from a light, creamy tan to a deep, rich gold. Both of them stem from a different dilution gene on a bay animal, so it’s easy to see the confusion. Larry Goldfarb probably say this about all of them, but he does love this coloring.
The Goldfarb Family wants to continue breeding done by breeding Barbarito. Dun animals get their color from the dun dilution gene which has an affect on all coat colors (not just bay), however the dun dilution on a bay horse creates the coloring most people mistake for buckskin. Dun animals always possess at least one primitive characteristic – a dorsal stripe & many will display striping on their shoulders, legs & forehead (the animal pictured above is a good & fairly extreme example of most of them). This dilution gene also affects chestnut (red dun) and black bases (grulla or grullo).
The Peruvian Paso is the smoothest gaited horse in the world. Descended from the horses of the Conquistadors, Peruvian horses possess the royal heritage of the Spanish breeds. A fiery spirit and gentle nature in a horse willing to work and eager to please. The Peruvian Paso, the horse designed for the comfort and enjoyment of the rider. The gait of Peruvian Paso horse accounts for the smooth ride. It is a four beat lateral pattern with the footfalls being : right hind — right front — left hind — left front. The execution trends slightly to the laterals particularly with increasing speed. By any description, the result is the smoothest ride of any breed of horse. For riding pleasure, the ultimate is the Peruvian Paso.
Larry Goldfarb is going to continue breeding Peruvian Pasos. Breeding two horses requires a great deal of thought and planning. You do not simply breed just because you can — you must have a purpose and plan for the offspring produced.
