The first time I saw a photo of Midnight Rose was when we received a show photo of her for the book "Miniature Horses; Their Care, Breeding, and Coat Colors" by Barbara Naviaux, which we published in 1999. By then Rose was a five year old with an impressive show career. She was shown at the 1994 - 1999 AMHA Nationals, from a weanling through five years old, and in that time was a top ten multi-color mare for five years, including her first year as a weanling. She was also shown in halter, driving, youth, and amateur classes. Bred and shown by Mary Lou and Harry Elder of Me-He Miniatures in Colorado, Rose was the result of a first time breeding of her sire, Oasis Collections Almost Midnight, a jet black tobiano sabino pinto, and her dam, Me He Rosie, a chestnut tobiano pinto. That breeding cross was tried three more times, but none of the foals were anything as spectacular as Midnight Rose. Rose is a dark black bay with dazzling blue eyes that are surrounded by dark skin. Covered in ink spots and freckles she is an excellent example of the tobiano pinto gene in its extreme form. Her outstanding wild pattern is matched with an equally outstanding personality. She is happy just to follow us around the property and see what we are up to, or stand guard over a mare and newborn. Midnight Rose joined our broodmares in 2010 when she was in her mid teens. We hope to have many more years with her at Pacific Pintos. We want to thank Mary Lou and Harry Elder for their love and devotion to this spectacular mare.
Rose has been tested and is a Bay (Aa), Homozygous for the Tobiano (TT) gene (she will always have a tobiano pinto foal no matter what stallion she is bred to). She tested negative for the Frame, Splashed White, and Sabino genes.
