Haiku — rest in peace lovely boy

Arriving March 28th, Haiku was Kabibi's (Rubin Royal/ Donnerhall) 3rd foal for us. A simply elegant black colt by Hotline (Hofrat/ De Niro), Haiku was more than I had hoped for from this cross. Hotline has become known for late maturing offspring who sometimes lack type as foals. In this instance, that reputation definitely was not fulfilled. Haiku was very beautiful, typey, elegant and tall. He had quite a bit of unfolding to do on his long, long legs, but he showed me some gorgeous movement. He was an outstanding colt. Unfortunately, we lost Haiku to a side effect of medication that he was on for a respiratory infection. He died very suddenly May 11th from Rifampin hyperthermia. RIP, little man. We will always miss you.

Haiku - so elegant
