"Hank" just keeps getting better! First evaluated as a baby, he received the highest score in the biennial Lipizzan evaluations that year and we were justifiably proud. Due to their immaturity, foals are not judged on the full criteria and consequently, their scores are ordinarily higher than they will be in subsequent evaluations. So when Hank bettered his foal score when evaluated as a 2-year-old, we were thrilled and his score was again the highest of any horse evaluated. To receive permanent status, each horse must be evaluated at 3 years of age or older and I held my breath when we presented Hank in front of Dr. Oulehla for the third and last time as a 4-year-old in 2003. Imagine our delight when he again bettered his previous score and achieved the highest score ever given. Hank has now begun his training under saddle and will stand to his first book of mares in 2006. Contact us if you have a quality Lipizzan mare you're interested in breeding to this phenomenal young stallion. See his 2003 evaluation sheet below.
