The Elixir (Hi-Fashion Mreekh x Jaliya) has passed away. Owned by Susan Watson & Leo Barnes of Watson Arabians, The Elixir rose to prominence in the late 1990s, garnering numerous championships, including the Egyptian Event Senior Champion Stallion and Reserve Supreme Champion Stallion in 1996. The Elixir was also extremely successful as a sire, and sought-after EBC stallion, producing many champions in both halter and performance divisions. In recent years he resided at Steve & Chris Johnson's Northwind Arabians in Wisconson, where he enjoyed his 'golden years,' always endearing himself to those who knew him with his presence and personality. Steve Johnson recalls, "He was a true gentleman; easy to handle and to work. He knew when it was time to show off."
[The Elixir] was a world class stallion, both in the show ring, and just chillin' here in Whitewater, Wisconsin. It was an honor taking care of you! Rest in peace "Lix".
