In Memoriam: LioCalyon
4/2/1992 – 2/26/2019

We are sad to share the news of LioCalyon's passing. He was the founding stallion of Wild Turkey Farm. His owner, Barb Ellison, says of him, " Lio was special from day one – not only was he so incredibly handsome but he was LIO. " He enjoyed competitive success and success as a sire. " I am at a loss for words to convey how much Lio meant to me. He was my world, he created Wild Turkey Farm, he was my signature stallion, and he is the statue you see when you drive up into the property, which is why he will be buried - by his statue. "


Editorial
Are North American Breeders Hysterical?
I have recently seen the word "hysterical" used to describe how American breeders reacted to Warmblood Fragile Foal Syndrome. Are American hysterical? Was their reaction to WFFS unreasonable?

Foundation Fridays
Recent Foundation Sires Featured on WarmbloodStallionsNA.com
We started a new feature on WarmbloodStallionsNA.com in 2018: Foundation Fridays! Every other Friday we will be featuring a foundation sire - one who has been influential in the development of warmblood breeds. Since our last email newsletter, we have added a few new stallions. With most of these articles, we'll be pulling from the incredible archive of The Horse Magazine , published by Chris Hector of Australia. Thank you, Chris, for permission to draw on your expertise!

In each of these articles, we introduce a Foundation Sire, and we also include links to stallions with each of these bloodlines who are on WarmbloodStallionsNA.com .
