18 Oct Juventus Deceased
October 18, 2010
KWPN approved stallion Juventus (Dublin x Aprhodite keur pref by Principaal) was humanely euthanized due to complications from arthritis resulting from an injury on October 12th. Juventus was imported by Iron Spring Farm in 1998 and was donated to Cornell for breeding purposes in 2009.
From Iron Spring Farm: Juventus was a wonderful stallion with a fantastic character and charming personality. It was with tremendous pride that we watched him earn the Grand Championship at the Dressage at Devon Breed Show in 1997 and 2001. He also had a lot of success in dressage, showing up to Intermediaire I before retiring due to an injury. While we are saddened by his passing, it is some consolation to know Juventus will continue on through his talented sons and daughters. We are grateful to Carol Collyer and everyone at Cornell for making his last years in retirement so enjoyable.
