DOB: March 2014
Tesseract is one amazing colt. He is just 2 1/2 years old so you would have a bit of a wait before riding. We have done the "string" test on him and estimate he will go to 16.3 when he finishes. His appearance is striking! He really is impressive. Even though he is a stallion, he loves scratches on his neck and just about any where.
Tesseract's sire is the amazing, Lavrador! Lavrador was standing at stud on our farm for about 3 years and that stallion just knew everything we said to him. It was phenomenal and he was a hoot to ride! You could ride him anywhere!!! Tesseract's dam is our DEM Trina who is such a love.
With the right training this guy is going to do whatever you ask of him.
