Pluto Matina’s  bloodlines go back to the legendary and valuable bloodlines of  Pluto Calcedona  he was the FIRST Austrian-bred Lipizzan to be born in North America, and out of the mare Bona,  who was imported from Piber.  In 1976,  at the age of 15, Pluto Calcedona, made his film debut as  Buffalo Bill‘s horse in a Paul Newman movie.     The owners the  Dreitzler family imported and bred many Lipizzans, and promoted the breed  through exhibitions,  but , tragedy struck  one evening.  A dam broke at the head of their beautiful, valley, which sent a wall of water 10’ deep, through the valley, killing almost all of the Raflyn Farm Lipizzans.  Pluto Bona II survived only because he had been sold and transported to Yvonne Fabian in Michigan prior to the flood.  Because of this, Pluto Bona’s bloodline would be rare in the United States and would cross well with the Lipizzan mares that had been imported and raised at Temple Farm in Wadsworth, Illinois.  Many of the foals from this line have gone on to work & compete up to Grand Prix, and do exhibitions with including the Airs above the Ground.
