In Loving memory of our first Friesian stallion RAVEN of Horsemeister.
June 12th, 1997-Sept 23rd, 2012
When Raven was 2 days old his dam stepped on his right knee and damaged the growth plate. Raven could not be ridden or compete because of his knee. Unfortunately this meant Raven had no value in FHANA. He couldn't go to a Kur for approval, and he could not be ridden. He was a fantastic stallion throwing his kind, loving disposition and his wonderful conformation. He had tremendous value to us and anyone wanting to improve on their mare. He sired over 300 fantastic foals in his lifetime. We have been so blessed to have had the privilege of caring for him for the last 10 years and looked forward to 2013 when the last of his babies arrived. We will miss him!
Raven's sire Ludse305 was exported back to the Netherlands due to the outstanding success of his offspring competing in dressage and after siring an approved son and grandson in America. The approved stallion ADEL 357 is a Ludse305 son who is competing Prix St George level. Ludse passed away at the age of 23 in August 2009.
Raven's offspring are also inheriting the ability to compete very well in dressage. Please visit our photo gallery for pictures of Raven's offspring.
