About Our Horses
In the summer of 1998, the Farm purchased three Trakehner mares from Long Lane Farms in Ontario, Canada. Two of the mares have produced offspring. Magnolie, by Topas II out of Madonna by Consul, produced a colt, Magnat Prinz Henri, by Prinz Sokrates. Magnat is shown here as a foal and in dressage competition. Magnat was a Dressage Futurity Reserve Champion and Reserve Champion in the Silver Stirrup Awards in 2004, as well as placing in the USDF All Breeds Award competition that same year. He consistently placed in regional dressage competitions.
Magnolie then gave birth to two fillies, Maia and Magdalena, both by Ibsen. The second mare, Fantazia by Amiego, out of Farina by Donauwind gave birth to Friederike by Topas II.

Some of the Farm's horses have distinguished themselves in the dressage realm. For example, Highbrow, a gelding by Luneur, out of Hurde II by Tarim, won 5th place in his Dressage Futurity as well as placing in the USDF Region Five Championships at the Training Level. Highbrow has been sold.
This photo shows Callisto. Born in 1988, she was the first foal born on Fox Hill Farm. Callisto, out of Tara, a shire, and by Mr. “M,” a quarter horse stud, gave us great joy while learning training level dressage. We then sent her to Lander, Wyoming, still at a young age. There, while in residence with an Amish gentleman, she learned to pull conveyances of all sorts. She was an obedient student and upon her return pulled our two-wheel buggy dutifully for several years. Her steady disposition and relaxed demeanor made her an ideal carriage horse.
