Mission Ridge Farm

Breeders of Rare Cremello, Buckskin and Palomino Warmbloods and Thoroughbreds!

Adonis is a 2009 palomino Hanoverian/Thoroughbred colt by Snowy River out of Romantic Fanfare by A Fine Romance. He is a lovely well built palomino colt in a deep bronze gold shade and will be quite the stunner as a mature horse. He shows lovely big floaty movement, free in the shoulder with beautiful extensions. His dam is by the well known stallion A Fine Romance, sire of many top eventers, hunters and recently a successful Grand Prix jumper. Her dam is the imported Hanoverian mare Flair II by the Furioso stallion Frieherr. Adonis is a wonderful hunter type that would likely also excel at dressage or eventing with his breeding and movement.  ***SOLD! Congratulations to his new owners!***
