By "Halloween" (APHA sorrel and white overo stallion), out of "Sugar Blues" (APHA palomino and white tobiano mare - "Atahi's" full sister).

He has a lovely head with a strongly pronounced jaw and a beautiful shallow mouth. His eyes are dark with a perfectly centered blaze. This young stallion's conformation is flawless! "Dixie Heart's" pedigree boasts countless World and National Champions on both sides! You've already heard a bit about his sire, "Close to Heart", and his outstanding working blood, but to top it off, his dam, "Skips Dixie" (a multiple Halter winner and great working mare), is an own daughter of the late, great Quarter Horse sire "Sir Raleigh"! "Sir Raleigh" was the sire of multiple; AQHA World Champions (in both Halter and Performance), AQHA Champions, Superior Halter Horses, and Superior Performance Horses (in Western Pleasure, Hunter Under Saddle, Working Hunter, Pleasure Driving, Hunter Hack, Western Riding, and Trail). He sired countless Register Of Merit horses. "Sir Raleigh" was also the sire of "Skips Sierra Nick", the winner of the 'Copenhagen/Skoal Superhorse' award at the AQHA World Show. (A 13 page production record on "Sir Raleigh" is available upon request.) This outstanding stallion prospect is one of those few horses in the nation that really has the ability to sire winners in both the halter and a variety of performance classes.

It's seldom you find all of these qualities in one package! Introductory breeding fee $500.

Atahi II

ATAHI II - 1999 APHA jet black and white tobiano stallion. You can tell by his name how this spectacular young stallion has been evaluated! "Atahi II" is Big, Black, and Beautiful! For twenty-six years the name "Atahi" had belonged to one horse only! I've added a 'II' after the name to describe just how perfect this stud is! He is 70% black and 30% white. His markings are fantastic, and his conformation is faultless! He has an exceptionally sweet, willing disposition. He is a double grandson of "Atahi". "Atahi II" is the best balanced, highest quality black and white stallion (tobiano or overo) of his age that I've ever seen. I feel he will produce the next (fifth) generation of successful, sound, beautiful, Paint horses at Karen Griffith Farms.

He is by "Ebony Heart" (APHA black stallion-outstanding own son of "Atahi", AHSA Champion Sire), out of "Win My Heart" (APHA dark bay and white, homozygous, tobiano mare-one of "Atahi's" best daughters). Keep in mind that the great horses like Leo, Wimpy, etc., etc., were produced by this half brother, half sister mating of prepotent, genetically correct sires. I waited 20 years to line breed "Atahi" offspring. I wish I had begun sooner, but I'm old fashioned, and wanted to breed to a large variety of mares to make sure there were no 'fluke' genes there to crop up. You've probably heard the old saying....."You could breed that horse to a hay wagon and make a race horse! " Well, "Atahi" has proven to be one of those genetically superior stallions. With "Atahi II's superb genetics, absolutely flawless conformation, willing disposition, and beautiful coloring, he should stamp his offspring with all of the outstanding qualities that Karen Griffith Farms has worked so diligently to achieve over the last 30 years. Introductory breeding fee $750.

"Atahi II" is not available for outright purchase, but I will begin to sell reserved breeding shares this year.
