Our States Premium mares, originally imported from Germany, bring world class bloodlines (Raphael, Ganymed/Grundstein, and Wilhelm Tell) to America. Two have been Devon champions. They've produced stallion sons. Their foals are smart, athletic and correct. Together, they form an extraordinary breeding foundation:
