They were best friends for over two decades, inseparable, and sharing pastures together through their mothering years. Two greats in their own right, whose contributions are incalculable. On April 21, 2016, Little Liza Fame left this world right before her 28th birthday. Just three days later, Shahteyna joined her at 34 years old.

But on this morning, he was just a happy colt, finding his legs for the first time, in a little stone barn in the Dutch countryside. # GreatMoments # Pa dron Great Moments" is a feel-good service of EvieInc Equine Social Media. www.EvieInc.net.
