Limited Edition of Genesis
L.E. achieved Gold at her inspection and classification in July of 2016 in Ohio, making me a very happy owner! She is no stranger to winning however, L.E. won her weanling and yearling futurities and was Reserve weanling Champion as the youngest in her class, and as a yearling was Overall Champion. She has been with me since then and is a fantastically well mannered mare with a great mind. I thank John and Michele Dunkel for selling her to me as a yearling.
L.E.’s sire, Arno Van Het Nieshof, bears little introduction as the only stallion in North America to earn his AHR ‘Supreme Stallion’ status based on the merits of his offspring. Arno was imported from Holland as a yearling by Genesis Farm. Since entering the United States, Arno has been named the two-time American Haflinger Registry ‘National Champion Stallion’ as well capturing FOUR consecutive ‘AHR Stallion Of The Year’ titles. Perhaps even more impressive though is Arno’s ability to pass on his superior attributes to his offspring and this uncanny ability is witnessed time and time again as his offspring win in show rings around the country and are some of the highest scoring horses at the AHR Inspection and Classification sites every year.
L.E.’s dam, Ladylike RP, is sired by Walzertakt and out of the great-producing mare, Larisa TOF.
Walzertakt was one of the premier sires here in the United States, in addition to being a premier ‘W-line’ sire as well. He sired many AHR Silver Classified sons and daughters during his time here in the United States while on loan from Austria. He also produced 2 AHR GOLD Classified daughters.
Larisa TOF is sired by the former World Champion Stallion, Amadeus, is considered one of the most influential stallions ever within the haflinger breed. She is out of the Austrian mare, Lanette. Larisa was imported from Austria by Tudor Oaks Farm. She has been a proven broodmare that has produced numerous show and Futurity champions, including many AHR Silver Classified daughters. This mare line offers lots of athleticism with smooth bones with perhaps most importantly long necks, which is a rare attribute among haflingers here in the United States.
