Things to come:
GSF was purchased by Kemah Farms at the end of 2013 to start his
dressage career. Between stallion testings, he spent his time growing
up and becoming a breeding stallion, so he's got a little catching up to
do, but we are excited about the training and show career of such a
special, modern, and expressive stallion. Greenstone Farm and an
affiliate breeder are expecting 6 foals by him this spring.
