    I just know he's in Brookton area, lol.

    Hmm he was shown a bit in the Pinto classes yrs ago, maybe contact the Pinto Registar, im sure she may know of him & him out showing & whatnot.

    Theres a stallion by him here in York too.

    I'm pretty sure he is in the Armadale area now but if you pm ZaZa she will be able to tell you where he is I think

    I got this info on Colour Bon, like i said if you contact the Pinto Registrar, you'll get the info ;). (PM me for details)

    Colour Bon or Pintana Colour Bon is his Pinto name.
    He was owned by the Clunings, who sold the stallion years ago!!!!!! He was sold to a Richard Potter in Yarloop & he is the one who registered him Pinto in 1991. The Cornick family bought him in 1993 & showed him as a Pinto.
    Evan & Michelle Dolden of Pingelly bred the stallion that is owned locally & they have had Colour Bon for about the last 9yrs & were probably his last owners. Any progeny from about 1990 was bred by one of those three people & not the Clunings. Colour Bon was born in 1981 so was not THAT old, but any progeny less than 18yrs old was NOT bred by the Clunings!!!!!

    Edward from Ed Lockyer floats had him in his last days, his last 2 fillies were conceived when he was 26yo, he died at 27yo, about 2 years ago now.

    They are both solids, one chestnut and 1 grey and are about 3yo's now.
    He was a lovely old boy.
  13. Her are the two fillies that i have pictures of.

    I have pictures of two of his boys but know who they are called Sleek the Elite and Bon Montage.

    This one was called Tiffany

    And she was called Zoe.
