The first baby from this great match-up has arrived!! And we sure are pleased with the results -- we think you will be too!

Artfully Maid (Ruby) has delighted us with an excellent bay/dark brown colt that is a regular teddy bear of a guy! Invi is bred to perform with All Hands On Zip as his sire, and Artfully Maid (by Artful Investment -- AQHA) as his dam.  All Hands On Zip is a 5 Time World Champion and a Bronze Medallion World and National Champion Sire. And Artful Investment (Artie) is the highest point-earning stallion in the history of AQHA and has more World Championships than any other stallion in history! He is also a 5x AQHA World Champion, as well as an AQHA Supreme Champion, AQHA Versatility Champion, 2x Reserve Superhorse, etc. With bloodlines like this, this youngster can't help but be a winner!!

Invi has fabulous bone, beautiful little dished face and the conformation we look for in a World Caliber performance horse.  He is definitely a big boy -- far larger than we expected since he is a first baby and Ruby just didn't really look that big prior to delivery. We were obviously wrong!

Invi should excel at Hunter Under Saddle but should also have the collection to do Western Pleasure -- with his height and stride he should make a winning all-arounder. And his color will certainly be flashy out in the show ring -- dark bay or brown for all those bay-lovers out there! This colt has the correct conformation, long correct legs, strong topline and fabulous shoulder that we always look for in our high caliber prospects.

Keep an eye on this youngster and join us as we watch him grow!

Price: $7500
