Pavo Equine by Justalittlelost Pavo Equine by Justalittlelost
EDIT: Pavo's now only come in Light and Heavy, i've decided to make it a breed rather than a gene, they will have a new name and a new ref as soon as i can make one.

Pavo Equine
Pavo's come in two builds at the moment, light {The basic body build of a quarter horse, sometimes seen to have arabian-esque bodies} and heavy {Much like draft breed horses with Friesian accents.} All Pavo's are heavily feathered feet.
Unless bred to a winged horse, Pavo's will not breed winged foals.
All Pavo equine have 4-8 feathers behind each ear, these feathers grow in the colors found on the horses tail.
Pavo equine have a marking called "Eye Spots" which are similar to birdcatcher spots, but they come in the color of the eye of their feathers.
All Pavos have the colors of their feathers streaked through their manes and can be found on their legs, very rarely any higher than their Hocks.
Pavo's loose their feathers yearly, generally in the fall, and they grow back within a month or two.
The head of a pavo feather with the eye on it can be anywhere from the size of your hand to the size of your head.

Pavo equines tend to have flashy attitudes. They can be territorial and keeping several pavo equine in the same place can be dangerous, it is suggested to keep Pavo stallions in separate pastures.

Breeds Pavo's can breed with:
NOTE: Pavo's are breedable with the following horses breeds. It's been noted that the breeding with a non-pavo results 75% of the time in the other breeds standards with a peafowl tail, however some loose the trait to lift the tail, and almost none have feathers and very few eyespots..

All Natural horse breeds.
Unnatural equines [I.E horses without a breed.]

Pavo Equines are a CLOSED breed!
But you may request one by note, i may even allow you to design it yourself.

Pavo equines are (c) myself
Disclaimer! I do not claim rights over a "peacock" horse, however i claim right over any horse who has a peacock tail, Eye spots on the body, and striping in the legs/mane, and feathers behind the ear.

Are generic unicorns (ie normal horse breed with a horn, not a named breed beyond the horse breed) alright for this gene? You mention Pavo cannot breed unnatural colored foals - does this include other made-up genes that cause unnatural markings, or just randomly oddly colored base coats? Is it a dominant or recessive gene?

If it is a dominant gene, I'd be happy to allow it in #BluegrassHuntingPony if bred in via Icelandic Horses.

LOL OK MY BAD! Word mix up I shoulda clarified

What I mean is the pavo gene gannot create a purple friesian for example. Pavo only adds the peafowl markings not colors that don't appear in the breed. Hwowever if its stated that the horse is unnatural its fine. But the pavo gene just doesn't cause purple markings etc.

Id love for it to! I love your guys their abosolutely adorable, and that kirrin is to die for! Kirrin + pavo would be awesome :3

Ah, great, I see! I'm thinking about making a pavo miniature horse unicorn to keep my papillon unicorn company.

That sounds good. :) BHPs bred to pavo Icelandic horses will produce pavo refiner stock that have a chance of creating pavo BHPs if bred back to BHPs, then.

Go right ahead! :)

Well the pavo gene can breed random, hence how its bred into other horses, so you can do the lines for a pavo bhp and it can be bred just like any other mutation :) my first idea was for 3 generations its bred w/ a 50/50 chance of producing a dom pavo equine.
