Patience and Perseverance!
Back in 2008, a Florida breeder of Lipizzans for 40 years welcomed a bay colt into their Lipizzan family.

He was backed at five-and-a-half-years-old, and when I met him in 2015 at 7, he was a recently-gelded, sassy, but beautifully started 15.1 hand powerhouse. It was love at first sight, and I had to buy him.
