It is with deep sadness that we announce the loss of Witcham House Farm Stud's beautiful Black Stallion, Elroon

Elroon was born in 2001 and Licensed by the Hanoverian Verband in 2003. He was imported him from Germany in January 2004. Elroon then returned in the Autumn of 2004 to pass his performance test at Adelheidsdorf with high marks for temperament, character and rideability. Already attracting huge interest and adoration. His first foals were very striking with presence and movement.
