2015 AQHA stallion NORTHERN METALLIC (affectionately known as “Harley” by his connections) is a multiple NRCHA Aged Event Finalist with stunning physique and eye appeal. This hard-working, kind son of METALLIC CAT has a pedigree that is second to none coupled with athleticism, cow sense and trainability that are sure to pass down to his foals. His strong maternal line gives him the added desirability of potentially becoming a renowned broodmare sire.

JULY 12, 2019 || Thank you to everyone for their kind words about NORTHERN METALLIC. While it is incredibly gratifying to receive congratulations and compliments, I want to acknowledge Harley's connections from Day 1, all the people who actually got him to where he is today: my dad, John Katerberg, and my mom, Mary Katerberg, agreed to look after my horses long after they had retired from their own jobs and Dad looks after the mares and the foals from birth until they embark on their careers; Tracey Foster Duriez, Todd McAleney and Diana Foster start them on their ground work at their beautiful Desert Acres Arabians ranch; Aaron Lagadon and Ryan Burnett started Harley under saddle; and John Swales, Deanne Swales and team kindly took him into their program and have made him a superstar. Huge thanks to Natalie Jackman for her classy photography.
