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.
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.
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.
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

G RAVEN HEART - 1995 APHA jet black and white tobiano
stallion. By "Ebony Heart" (APHA full brother to American
Horse Show Association Hunter Champion, "Bedazzle"), and
out of "Steal My Heart" (APHA homozygous tobiano "Atahi"
daughter). "Raven" is line-bred "Atahi" and it shows! He
is the stallion we've been awaiting to fill Atahi's shoes.
A Pinto Sport Horse breeder's dream! This outstanding
boy has perfect legs with plenty of bone and great feet.
He has a gorgeous head with a star, stripe, and snip, large
dark "Atahi" eyes, and a very refined neck. (Raven
has the most elegant neck on a mature stallion that you've
ever seen.) His topline is strong, tying into a beautiful
hip, and he has a wonderful slope to his shoulder. "Raven's"
movement is fluid and reaching. His markings are 60/40 (black/white),
and are beautifully placed. He is a lovely sight under saddle.
A recent customer, who was stunned by his beauty, described
him simply as "A work of art!"
Heart" is smart, athletic, and classy! Being line-bred "Atahi",
he should stamp his get with these same exceptional qualities.
He's the "do-it-all" kind of horse that "makes a living"
for the people around him. "K G Raven Heart's" book will
be limited to 20 outside mares. Introductory breeding fee
FLASH!!! .....All of Raven's foals to date have been
loud tobianos out of solid mares. If Raven's future foals
are half as good as these, his offspring are going to be
the Paints to beat in the new millennium!!
G Raven Heart" will be syndicated this year. This will allow

individual's superb genetics and ability. For detailed information

G BRAVEHEART - 1996 APHA bright chestnut and white tobiano
stallion. By "Ebony Heart" (APHA black stallion), out of
"Touch My Heart" (APHA chestnut and white tobiano mare).
This is one of the best made, most beautifully marked stallion
prospects I've seen in the United States in years. "K G
Braveheart" has "APHA Champion" written all over him! He
stands 15-1 hands. "Brave" will make a really flashy
reiner. He has also shown an interest in working cattle.
He's 'catty' in his movement, and has the most gorgeous,
long, white, full mane you've ever seen! ("K G Braveheart"
is very versatile in his abilities and when worked over
fences, has lovely, correct form. He is extraordinary in
all three gaits. Hunter mare owners will love him!) His
legs are wonderful (correct, plenty of bone, and great feet),
his body is well muscled with proper angles to be a superior
athlete, and his graceful neck and beautiful head set off
an outstanding package! To top off these bold physical qualities,
he has a sweet, inquisitive attitude. The kind that begets
a stallion who is willing, easy to handle, and develops
into a brilliant performer and breeder. He works beautifully
under saddle, and has proved to be intelligent, light, and
eager to please. (Last summer, a 14 year old girl exercised
him under saddle everyday.)
is line-bred "Atahi", and should mark his get with all of
the outstanding traits Karen Griffith Farms has been working
to achieve over the last thirty years. Make a name for yourself

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.
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.
