Tao is the newest stallion addition to Olivia Farm! He is an amazing young colt who epitomizes


movement, trainability,

and beauty


How could I resist this beautiful combination of two of  the best imported Fjord stallions we have ever known?  His sire is Tico (now happily retired and living the life of luxury) and his maternal grandsire is Fløtren (co-owned with Brianne Stromberg).  Both of these senior stallions not only put amazing offspring on the ground, but had impressive show careers in dressage, driving, jumping and halter. 


Tao will be turning two in 2019 and is just starting to show his impressive breeding and performance potential.  I’m extremely excited about his conformation, movement and breed character.  His temperament is just like his grand-sires… sweet, forward and fun.  He is going to be an ideal cross for mare owners looking to breed for a motivated working partner in any discipline. 


2019 is Tao’s introductory breeding season.  He will be available to breed a limited number of mares starting April 1st.  His breeding fee is $500, which includes a non-refundable $200 booking deposit.  Mare care is $10 a day.
