Having produced a total of three silver medallion winners and five bronze medallion winners, the prolific producer Skip The Color has earned her bronze supreme dam production plaque, her silver superior dam production plaque and her place in the Appaloosa Horse Club Hall of Fame.

Bred by Diamond Head Ranch in Lincoln, Nebraska, and owned since 1988 by Crown Center Farms of Columbia, Missouri, the 1981 mare by Skipa Star (AQHA) and out of Bright Eyes Brother daughter Bright Starlette, has produced a total of 14 registered foals. These outstanding offspring have earned 326 performance points, 504.5 halter points, 193 non-pro ponts and 347.5 youth points and have earned 16 registers of merit, three superior event awards, one club championship and one versatility championship.

Bred to stellar Appaloosa sires such as Impressive Andrew and Dreamfinder, Skip The Color has produced multiple medallion winner, club champion and versatility champion Color Me Andrew; multiple medallion and superior event (halter) winner Andrew's No Color; and multiple World and National top ten halter and performance winner Dream Of Color. Her 1986 Noble Succesor (AQHA) foal, Impressive Hitman, earned five bronze medallions, three bronze superior achievement certificates and a superior event (halter) award.

Skip The Color's own show career, though lasting only one year, culminated in numerous grand and reserve championships and a top six placing at 1983's World Show.
