In Memory of  Graf’s Royal Aine ~     Oldenburg/ ISR  1998-2013   Sire: I am Graf Royal (Graf Gotthard Z/Secretariat)  Dam: Delaney’s Wish  Our first of many homebred Sporthorses,  Aine  was quick minded, sensitive, bold and independant.  She proved  to be an extraordinary broodmare, producing 4 high quality foals.  The "little mare that could" , her offspring consistantly replicated the type and desireable traits of  their  quailty sires, yet Aine stamped each with her keen sensibility and proud nature.

She is greatly missed and remembered fondly. Her prescence is reflected in the traits and characteristics she passed to each of her offspring, all of which remain with us on our farm ....
