    then end of an era.

    many hugs.

    even though we know we won't share the road forever, it never eases the pain when we part ways.

    I saw this on Facebook - very sad.

    I have always admired this beautiful boy and his wonderful offspring.

    Liz, I'm so sorry to hear this. What a long and illustrious life he had -- and contributed so much! Such a gorgeous stallion.

    Many condolences to Liz, who also lost her mother not too long ago.

    As for the number of Art Deco offspring - there are several hundred of them listed with USEF, and Lord only knows how many never got recorded with USEF at all. I wonder if he has more offspring recorded with USEF than any other warmblood stallion. Anyone know?

    My heartfelt condolences to Liz and Godspeed to Art Deco who had a most wonderful life and will live on through his glorious get. I showed right next to him at the ABIG USDF Reg. 1 Championships one year, and we shared the same QuikSilver! He was truly special and will be missed.

    I am sorry that he has died. But I'm happy that he lived to be so old. His sire Samber was in his 30s when he died a few years ago. I'm hoping that my Samber grandson makes it to 30 yrs of age.

    Art Deco was a great example of conformation (and color).

    RIP Art Deco! I have loved that horse since I first saw him back in the 90s. We've got a daughter of his at our farm for training - she's gorgeous to look at and very sweet.

    RIP Art Deco - you opened so many doors for colored sport horses - you will be remembered! Over the Rainbow Bridge, grazing happily in the great green pastures...

    So sorry to hear this! I have one of his babies--got great color from him and probably the smartest horse I've every had the pleasure to ride. What a great stallion!

    I have always loved Art Deco from afar, he was just so handsome and a proven performance horse, too. I have a daughter of his who always produced my best foals, and I now own her son, so the line continues in my barn. They are smart, flashy, great movers, and good workers...RIP beautiful boy!

    OH -I am so sad - I was just thinking about him as I walked my 24 yo Art Deco son Himalaya out to the field, the other day. We bred 3 different mares to Art Deco - all were solids and had 5 pintos from those breedings and no solids.

    Himalaya has been a wonderful standout - everyone who knows him or has worked on him (farriers, Vets) always agree when I say - this horse has NEVER done anything wrong!

    Art Deco will be missed - Liz I know this was hard for you. xoxo
