Wieza Mocy’s dam line is a wealth of beauty and quality as well. She is a granddaughter of the great sire, Monogramm and the U.S. National Champion Mare Wizja, a mare also bred by Michalow State Stud. In Poland, the breeders’ touch is golden, their vision is legendary and their art is magical – they seem to create one miracle of beauty after another.
