and more information.

PHANTOM HEART - 1991 APHA golden palomino and white tobiano stallion. Pinto Colored Sport Horse Deluxe! This 1/2 Thoroughbred stallion is a dressage, hunter/jumper, or event breeder's dream come true. He also has the speed that top race competitors seek. "Phantom" has exceptional movement in all three gaits. He tracks up under himself smartly at the walk and his trot is long, sweeping and flat kneed. His canter is beautiful in either collection or extension. It is ground covering and smooth. "Phantom's" markings are beautiful. He has a palomino head with big dark eyes and a nice blaze. His body markings are 50/50 and very nicely placed. To say that "Phantom" has a pleasant disposition is an understatement. He is well mannered, very willing, and one of the most giving horses you'll come across. He has clean straight legs with a lot of bone, and good sized feet. He should maintain the same soundness of his sire and dam.

He is by "Atahi" (APHA - black and white tobiano stallion, AHSA Open Hunter Champion Sire), who is 31 years young and still going strong. His dam is "Phantom Smasher" (black TB mare - 16 hands), who came off the track sound after multiple wins and five years of racing. "Phantom Smasher" is also a lovely mover and should have gone on to the dressage ring after she left the track. She is by "Smashing Success" (TB), who is a Black Type winner of 13 races and a sire of multiple Stakes Winners, and out of "Sly Phantom" (TB), who had 17 wins over a six year racing career and is also a dam of multiple race winners.

"Phantom Heart" stands 15-2 hands. Since his sire and dam are both black, he is able to throw the black and white tobianos so many of you look for. His first foal was a beautiful black and white tobiano filly, out of a solid bay, 1/2 TB mare! (I like her so much, I am keeping her to show myself and then put into my breeding herd.) He also has thrown buckskin and chestnut out of palomino mares. These foals all sold prior to beginning their training. Since, Phantom carries the diluter gene, he is able to throw the rare and sought after palomino, grulla, and buckskin paints. All of his foals to date have been #10 movers with beautiful conformation and sweet personalities.

"Phantom Heart's" loving disposition, flashy color, exceptional breeding, and classic movement will make him a crowd pleaser, a winner in speed events, and an unstoppable success in the breeding barn. Get a jump start in the sport horse business by owning a proven producer. Reasonably priced at $25,500. Breeding fee $500.

Atahi II

Click on the pictures for enlarged photos
and more information.

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.

TOUCHIN HEARTS - 2000 APHA solid chestnut colt, 1/4 TB. This is a beautiful, bright chestnut boy with copper overtones. He has two matching hind stockings that go up to a point in front of both hocks. He also has a lovely white blaze. He looks like a small-scale Thoroughbred. His movement is outstanding, and his conformation is very correct. When I am describing in a clinic how a young stallion this age should be made, this is the colt they should see! (As a matter of fact, I am currently in the process of photographing him to use as an example in my clinics.) He will make an outstanding hunter pony, sport pony, or dressage pony stallion! His genetics are superb! He should mature right under 14.2 hands. He is fancy enough to show on the line, and has a wonderful pedigree. By "Ebony Heart" (own son of AHSA Champion Sire Atahi), and out of "Touch My Heart" (dam of successful APHA stallion K G Braveheart). Reasonably priced at $18,000.
