"Arthavieux" is a black Friesian Sport Horse Gelding: Friesian x Overo Appendix cross.
His dame is registered w/ APHA & has many top Thoroughbred in her line to include Secretariat. His personality & gentleness takes more after his Friesian sire then the dame side. He is an attention hog and must be involved in anything you are doing if you are in his space. He will kindly share his toys by throwing them over the fence to his yearling friend who tends to throw it back at him.
Words to describe him are:
Balanced, Extremely athletic, Exquisite mover, Bold, Curious, Playful, Show off, Great conformation, Straight leg, Intelligent, Loves human contact, Built like a tank yet elegant and refine, Powerful mover, Natural extension and spring in his steps. We anticipate he will be around 16.3 hands.
Cannon bone measures 17"
He has been gelded, & wolf teeth removed, Vaccinated May 2014, with 5-way, West Nile, Strangle & Botulism. Wormed every 8 weeks on rotational worming cycle. Current coggin.
His feet are rock hard solid and has never needed a trim. He wears his feet evenly and like his half sister, Kacina who is now 7 years old, may not require any shoeing or trimming.
Very easy keeper.
His sheath was last cleaned May 2014 and he enjoys having it cleaned!
This boy would be great for the serious Eventer, Dressage rider, or Fox
hunter. He is very bold, not shy, spooky or fearful.
I have been raising foals since 1999 and have an excellent reputation for customer service and matching the right horse to the right new owner. I do not do business over emails, so if you are serious about this boy please call me so we can chat and make sure he will be a suitable match for you.
We do not do pasture foaling. All our foals are born under camera and are worked with everyday from the time they are born. I dedicate much of my time with the foals I raise & take pride in their up bringing and discipline. I raise intelligent foals for performance and outstanding learning ability along with the look and desire to work that most serious upper level show riders are looking for. After the time and money I put in the babies I raise I do not make any profit. Please understand that I raise them not for money but because it is a passion of mine. The thrill I get when I receive feedback from their new owners, telling me about their progress and show results along with pictures is beyond words.
Please view our customer feedback page on our home page of our web site at elysiumfarm.com . You can also view pictures of his sire and dame there as well.
Currently I have down size my breeding program and I am only breeding one foal a year out of our well respected Friesian Stallion "Abe Von Reh", as I am now attending college. His foals over the last 12 years all have been fantastic and doing very well in show.
