Legend Woods Friesian Sport Horses is proud to present their 1997 Friesian Stallion, Zero Gravity...
Zero Gravity, a 15.3 hand 1997 OWN SON OF NERO, is now offered for sale. "Z" is the only purebred son of Nero that has EVER been offered for sale anywhere. Nero is now 19 years old, and so far, there are only 3 purebred sons (he likes to throw fillies) in existence - Z was his first. Why are we selling him? We also own the other 2 full brothers to Z and after our tragic loss of Vanyel, we need another, new bloodline to introduce to our breeding program. So, reluctantly, someone must go and Z is ready to hit the dressage show ring and fill someone's breeding shed. Z is a proven producer of long legged offspring (many of them colored more than is usual with Friesians) that are excelling in the performance arena. See below for the collage of babies! Z consistently even out produces himself and stamps height, movement, conformation, hair and temperament on his foals. We see LOTS of "Nero influence" in his get. Z is known for allowing color to come through and he has some of the flashiest, prettiest Friesian Sport Horse offspring in the country! (Genetic color buffs theorize that the secret to his color production may be in his little white star that he hides under his huge forelock - he may have a gene that "boosts" the colors found in the mares.) His semen quality is excellent and we offer a live foal guarantee.
Zero Gravity is currently in dressage training and will be showing in Region 4 this year, at training level. He has excellent gaits with a lovely, floating trot and a lofty, uphill canter. Check back here for his show scores - they will be posted as they are earned. So far, at his first schooling show ever, he took home 3 blue ribbons from the 3 classes he participated in. He also won the overall high point award of the show with a 73.33%, and it was 100 degrees outside that day.
Physically, Z, is a beautiful Friesian with the tiniest ears and lovely head and the heavy Friesian mane, tail, forelock and feathers - and he has a wonderful temperament. Even better still, Z comes from a long-lived bloodline - his sire Nero is currently 19, sound, healthy and being ridden regularly. His mother is currently just shy of 19 years and still sound, healthy and trail riding. Whether you are looking for a quality stallion to sire exemplary offspring, or if you are looking to purchase a future herd sire, this is a stallion to be considered.
Zero Gravity holds papers with the Friesians of America (FOA), as a Silver licensed Ster stallion with breeding approval, the Friesian Sport Horse Registry (FSHR) as a Ster stallion and the American Warmblood Society (AWS).
All of Z's offspring are eligible for registration with the Friesian Heritage Horse & Sporthorse International (HH), the Friesian Sport Horse Registry (FSHR) and the Friesian Blood Horse Registry (FBHR), some are also eligible for the FOA, among many others.
Z has been sold - Congratulations to Christa in California - We will miss him here!
Frozen semen from Z is still available through Legend Woods. Please email us for details.
