SANTA CLARA, Calif.
— An Australian auction house says it is confident its new breed of copper stallione will be popular with the general public.
The stallion’s new owner, D.D. White, says he was inspired by the breed when he purchased the stallion from an auction in England in 2009.
D.D., who has been keeping the stallions for nearly four years, says it was a perfect combination of toughness and strength.
“When I got them, I thought ‘I have to make them strong,”’ D.E. told ABC News.
When I get them I don’t mind the way they’re dressed,” D. D. said.
White has been selling the stallione, named “The Copper Horse” because of its unique coloration, since he bought it.
At auction in Britain, the stallION sold for $2,500 (about $2.50 USD) at an auction house in the United Kingdom’s South East.
The price is higher than the Australian auction, which is still in the process of vetting the breed.
According to White, the new breed is a better looking stallion than the original.
He also believes it is a more comfortable breed to keep than the older breed, known as the copper stallION.”
I’m very happy with it,” he said.
The stallions new owner has been maintaining the stallIONS home in Australia for about a year.
White says the stallioned stallions are extremely durable.
They can survive the extreme heat and extreme cold, he said, and will be good for a long time.
