Days of Gold stands just under 16 hands and sires tall performance horses that are winning in hacking, dressage, HUS, WP and the oldest are showing great jumping potential;  they are very correct and pretty enough to be successful at halter from weanlings to the oldest.  Two of the most outstanding qualities of his offspring are great legs and  wonderful ‘people loving’ temperaments – each year, many of the mares at stud are owned by people who already have a Days of Gold foal and want another one – his foals keep them coming back for more.

   Days as a 2 yr old                     

He will sire 100% dilutes (Palominos, Buckskins, Smoky Blacks, Cremellos, Perlinos, Smoky Creams) from non-grey mares (chestnut mares will have 50% chance of Palomino, 50% chance of Buckskin or smoky black; bay mares can have Palomino foals if they have a recessive chestnut gene but they are most likely to have Buckskin or Smoky blacks).. In order to sire Cremellos or Perlinos, the mare will need to be a cream dilute herself.  All foals out of grey mares will be born dilutes, but at least half will go grey.
