Festrausch Moves to Cazenovia

Hilltop News Festrausch Moves to Cazenovia Return to All Hilltop Archives >>> Festrausch (Florestan-Carprilli) has been an important part of the stallion line-up at Hilltop Farm since his purchase in 2000. His bloodlines, incredible movement, and elegant type stood him apart, and it is the movement and character that he passes to his offspring that have made many of his breeders very loyal to him over the years. Devon winners, USDF All-Breeds winners, an Approved Stallion and many Premium Mares and Foals have all proven his success as a sire. There is now an exciting new development in Festrausch's career that we wanted to share. In mid-October, Festrausch moved to Cazenovia College in New York to stand at stud and to continue the education of Cazenovia's Equine Business Management students. We've had a wonderful association with Cazenovia for many years through their internship programs and Hilltop Farm appreciates the quality of education they are providing to our future professionals. Their facility is top-notch and with the retirement of their current stallion, we knew they needed an exceptional stallion to bring additional focus and opportunities to their program. Professor Carol Buckhout and Farm Operations Manager Stefani Watson have both spent time at Hilltop with Festrausch and we have the highest comfort level with them taking over the care of this special stallion. Festrausch was greeted by over 25 students upon his arrival at Cazenovia and is clearly loving being the 'big man on campus.' Hilltop Farm remains committed to all of Festrausch's breeders and his offspring. Our Breeders Support Programs, website, etc. are all still available to owners of Festrausch...
