I bought Nikolai when he was a juvenile male in the Stachowski show-string in 2002.
He went right out at that very first show and won the blue in his class, and Reserve Color honors among all brown males at MAPACA 2002!
His estimable sire, 4P. Black Magic, is a true black full Sollocota Peruvian male with a fantastic production record.
When you find consistent quality among the males produced by a stud male, this is a line you want to own.
We also know that his dam, Nara, is bred back to Black Magic, year after year, with wonderful results.
Naturally, Nikolai has the conformation you would expect from a Stachowski-bred animal.
He carries himself in a proud, regal manner at all times.
His fleece has copper-penny brilliance and is still loaded with character to this day -- and he has a gray face.
Lots of potential here!
