AF Joyva was bred by Lynn and Barbara Artress of Artress Farms.  She was sired by the outstanding stallion, AM Beau Triomphe.  Her dam was by *Silver Vanity and out of an Alice Payne bred mare. 

Joy was a wonderfully balanced mare with impressive athletic talent. and a wise and kind soul.  She wasn't started under saddle until she was in her late teens, but she enjoyed learning to carry a rider and practice the nuances of dressage.  Joy's quality of structure, athleticism, and temperament inspired me to start the Faerie Court Farm breeding program, but she was infertile when I aquired her so Joy did not produce any foals for the farm.  Several of our most promising homebreds are the result of utilizing the same core family bloodline nicks found in AF Joyva's pedigree, and her quality in phenotype and pedigree  remains an inspiration as we continue to develop our program.

Joy was laid to rest peacefully on July 10, 2013 after being diagnosed with congestive heart failure.  She had just started to show symptoms, but treatments would only be short term and we did not want her to end up in a crisis.  She is buried near the foal paddock to honor her role as a wonderful auntie to the foals and a comforting companion to their dams.
