*After the parade*
(YF Mister Apollo - born 1/1/2002)
is our gorgeous 18.2 hand tall (modern-style) stallion out of Fox Valley Marcia and sired by Fox Valley Oliver. Oliver is the shire stallion that the Breyer company modeled their Shire horse after. You can read about some of Apollo's awards on the back of the Breyer box. Apollo is built in the modern-style, tall and lean with a smaller barrel and long legs - he is indeed mesmerizing.
This stallion gets along with everybody: dogs, horses, cows, people..... Besides being extremely gentle and sweet, Apollo is a true gentleman with his mares, as well as a great dad to his babies. He actually 'talks' to his foals & weanlings and seems to genuinely care for them! Fortunately for us, he also loves parades and shows and really loves to play the crowd - he's a natural. Although we sit on his back, we haven't broken him to ride yet, but he does seem to enjoy pulling our multiple show hitch wagons with his pasturemate Moon.
*Apollo is available to approved mares for chilled semen - with signed contract.*

!!! Our gentle giant, Apollo truly is an outstanding Shire Stallion !!!
