    Unhappy RIP Art Deco

    Art Deco, one of the most famous pinto warmbloods, cross the rainbow bridge today. He was 30 years old. I'm so sorry for Liz. He was a very special guy.

    What a fabulous guy. My Art Deco story:
    Years ago Jim Kofford was starting a test on Art Deco in the indoor at Raleigh. Right after his first turn, some kids made an enormous racket and AD jumped into himself for one stride and went right back to work. Throughout the test, you could see his front leg get bloodier and bloodier. The horse never faultered. Just continue to do his job.
    What a gift he has been to so many who have enjoyed his offspring.
    Rest in peace, beautiful boy.

    He was such a neat and special stallion! I have seen so many of his offspring and many were extremely nice and also talented. We have a grandson and a great grandson on our farm now, as a matter of fact. He made a great contribution to the sporthorse world. I am so sorry for his loss and send sincerest condolences to Liz and all of Art Deco's friends and admirers.

    Amazingly, there are 159 offspring by him recorded on www.allbreedpedigree.com and you know that's only a drop in the bucket. I wonder if Liz knows a figure of how many he sired during his lifetime. Truly great horse!

    So sorry for Liz and the Art Deco family. I visited them when I started to breed Pinto Warmbloods for the Hunter/eventing world. Liz was so helpful. My first purchase was a lovely mare by Art Deco, Queens Colors!
    He was a wonderful horse and very special to Liz. I can only imagine her sadness!

    Liz and Deco blazed the path for the rest of us.......

    All his grand kids and great grand kids send their condolances from Flying Colors!
