Sold ~ Diesel RSF (Diamond Stud x Freestyle x Cicero)
June 7th, 2021
Congratulations to Micah Leigh Blatt on her purchase of Diesel. Diesel is a phenomenal boy who just turned 4. He has the personality of a Golden Retriever with the body of a giant (17.2 hh).

February 18th, 2021
Ah that Texas weather. One week it’s 80 degrees and the next there is an artic blast with sub-zero temperatures. But, Joie Adeline (Morricone x Freestyle x Cicero) couldn’t care less.
New foals will be arriving shortly so stay tuned for updates. First up will be Eleanor RSF with her Romanov foal followed by Sophie RSF’s foal by the up and coming KWPN stallion Kjento. Both should be phenomenal and we are excited to see if they are colts or fillies. These two are no longer offered in utero but we do have a great line-up for 2021.
