Four white socks, a star, snip and little white lower lip

TJ was the first foal born on our farm and parting with him was not our first choice. However, we are thrilled that TJ has found his perfect person in new owner Anna Corley of Austin. They have been showing in the hunter ring and doing extremely well -- with many firsts, champion and reserve championships! But, best of all, TJ is happy in his job and loves his life. Congratulations to this great team and thank you to Anna for so carefully developing TJ's talent. See their show results below:

Champion Modified Adult Hunter -- won all three classes
Champion Schooling Hunter -- two 1sts, one 2nd. At same show won 7 out of 10 classes.
Reserve Champion in 3 divisions at one show -- Schooling Huner, Baby Green, Centex Green
Won Hunter Warm-Up out of 60 Trips

TJ is by the champion German Trakehner stallion Kostolany out of our Oldenburg Verband approved Trakehner mare Tahary. His dam sire is the full brother to Arogno, sire of Anky van Grunsven's Trakehner mount Partout. His granddam is a designated "exceptional" mare for having produced two approved stallions and she was awarded State Premium and the Silver Medal of the German Riding Horse Federation. TJ's bloodlines include Enrico Caruso, Mahagoni (sire of Olympic dressage stallion Peron) and other outstanding Trakehners including Ibikus and Flaneur. His part siblings through his sire include eight approved stallions (including the Dutch champion sire and 2007 World Cup competitor, Gribaldi) and the 2002 Niedersachsen dressage championship silver medalist, Shannon TSF.
