Chocolatey Appaloosa stallion


The 2005 stallion Chocolatey has been successful at the Appaloosa National and World shows and also on the Open circuit. Making an impact in western pleasure classes at prestigious events like the Southern Belle and Reichart shows, Chocolatey is a great ambassador for the breed.
He is a descendant of two Hall of Fame (HOF) stallions on both sides of his pedigree:
The Executive rose to prominence in the 1970’s with Lew Eklund and George Minic campaigning him and sired 301 registered foals who earned over 5000 points, 57 bronze medallions, one silver medallion and multiple championship titles. He was inducted into the HOF in 1993.
Bright Eyes Brother and the legendary Cecil Dobbin were one of the most influential horse-human pairs in Appaloosa history. Though Bright Eyes Brother only sired 146 registered foals, many of them excelled in show events and race, and three went on to be inducted into the HOF. He was inducted in 1988.
Owned by Noelle Schmidt of New Jersey, Chocolatey’s first foal crop hit the ground in 2009 and promises to be as talented and acclaimed as their Hall of Fame ancestors.
