Harz di Barbochos de Reiau de Prouvenco*, 17 years old today. He is called Haxel by his mistress that he selected himself
to take care of him and she accepted to adopt him officially just over 15.5 years ago.After a tumultuous beginning (abandonned by his first owner in the middle of nowhere)and showing up manymanymany days in a row in from of Chantal's door she decided that she had to do something about it. So she did and voilà.
Kudos to Chantal for what she has done to help the breed without really knowing she had a living treasure in her hands.
The tangled webs we weave...on how we were able to find him.However, the truth always comes out! Bravo and Merci Chantal!!
* and a fond thought for Hercule, his brother who was the "foundation stock" for M Georgii, of Poppenspaler's fame and for all his descendants.
