Archie (as we call him) is a superb young stallion with an excellent pedigree. He currently stands 15.2HH+, and will be over 16HH at maturity. He is an F1 stallion with his sire being 15HH and his Dam being 17-18HH so we are not completely sure what his final height will be. He has top quality feather, heavy bone and the most amazing feet I have ever seen on a horse. Archies hoof wall is super thick and does not chip and is so hard that the farrier has quite a workout trimming him. At his first show Archie placed third but the judge who is a top US National Draft Horse judge told me after that Archie should have placed first but as he decided not to trot he could not be placed higher than third. We will be offering live cover as well as possibly cool shipped semen. Since this is Archies introductory year we are offering a discounted stud fee of $500 for the first 3 bookings.
