Neapolitano Graziella, The First Lipizzaner Foal
Of The Year 2022 Arrived!

On Thursday, January 27th, 2022, the first foal Neapolitano Grazilella, a little stallion, was born at 00:05 am

"Mother mare Graziella and the cute tiny Lipizzaner are both doing very well. Since the birth a few days ago the mare and her little foal are exploring the world in small walks around the stable," says stud master Erwin Movia. "The birth occurred without any problem, and we can see what a lively one this one is going to be" continues the stud master about the stallion foal.

The adorable foal is the first foal of the seven-year-old mare Graziella who did very well at her first birth of a healthy little Lipizzaner,

The father of the lively little stallion boy is the school stallion Neapolitano Trompeta, one of the big stars in Vienna. The well-known school stallion was trained by Chief Rider Herbert Seiberl and can be seen in the program items "All Steps and Movements of the Classical Horsemanship" and "Pas de Deux".

Like every year from January to May around 40 foals are expected at the Piber Lipizzaner Stud. They are dark brown to black when they are born. They turn totally white over a period of six to ten years.

The Lipizzaner stud team is looking forward to the curious visitors who, at the beginning of the season in April, will be able to meet little Neapolitano Graziella and the other foals that will be born in the next few weeks.

Opening hours of the stud farm for visits and dates for events will be published on the homepage as soon as possible in accordance with the official requirements regarding the COVID-19 regulations
