Happy birthday to our Matriarch!

Today we celebrate the birth of Klawervlei Studs Matriach and our inspiration OFF TO WAR (Complete Warrior (USA) – Infanta). She is forever our protector. 

John Koster’s inspiration from this image of “Off To War’s” eye.

“On a beautiful July morning as the sun was rising in the East, I knew it was time to say one last goodbye to Off To War. Her eyes were still bright and alert. Looking deeply into her beautiful eye, I knew I had to photograph it to preserve the incredible image in my memory. This image has become our story; it defines who we are. It illustrates the circle of life. Off To War lives on in and around us, we see it daily in her progeny who continues to support, sustain and bring so much joy to us. Her legacy lives on.”

Now is eternity – now is the immortal life
