Thank goodness Spring is almost here. The grass is finally getting green and the horses have been let out to pasture. We have two pregnant mares, one sire is Persiles and the other is our “Charlie”. He already has one foal on the ground and she is a very nicely conformed filly. Our foals are due any day so staying in the barn and watching the monitors is our routine.
We do have our three year olds for sale. We have two fillies and one colt. See our “for sale” page for more information.
LOOK AT ME NOW!! Charlie’s sire is Saltador ORO who has important foundation sires in the lines of Terry, Guardiola and Cardenas. Charlie has started his training. He looked like a pro as soon as the trainer got on him. Well under saddle now and showing his excellent breeding, he also has a new filly on the ground sired by him who is one year old and he has another one due any day. He is doing wonderfully with his training. We hope to start showing him this Fall in some shows in this area and perhaps in the Virginia show this coming Fall. Charlie is sixteen-one hands. Our trainer said it is like dancing when you are on him. He is so willing to follow your instructions.
Osa Linda’s filly is now almost three years old and is gracefully and willingly doing her ground work.Her conformation is as close to perfect as it gets. She will be a bigger horse, probably around16 hands. She leads like a pro and has learned to lower her head with no problem. She also side passes with little pressure and seems to love the work. She will be gray when grown. Her sire is national grand champion Saltador. One can see the reflection of her excellent lineage in her movement. We will be working on her training more intensively this Spring.
Rafaella has completed her training with our professional trainer. She loves to go and we are teaching her to excel at side passing. We work her frequently with the long reins. She was shown at ERAC in working equitation, won a white ribbon and won the championship in reining. Her maneuverability is amazing, she can turn on a dime if asked. She is sweet, loyal and wants to please. Her sire is grand national champion Magico and her grandfather was grand national champion Cordobes. We are teaching her the Spanish walk and she is doing well. We are working on the piaffe.
She is 15.3 hands. She is ready to start her dressage training and is available at $12,000. She will make a wonderfully maneuverable horse for any discipline.
