Einsen , a lovely colt by Claim to Fame, was born March 5, 2014 in Texas! His dam Fonda, did a great job on her first foal. Owner, Troy White, is one proud papa!!!
We are thrilled to have a Counterclaim yearling here for the start of his training. 16 hands and not quite two years old, this fellow is gorgeous! He has lovely conformation, my favorite coloring, and will probably end up at least 16.2h! He is by a TB dam and owned by Cynthia Lewis.
This handsome colt was bred by Signature Sporthorses, aka Jessica Stallings amd Kemmofer DesRoche and out of their lovely mare, Honey (aka Scattered Dreams).
