California Vaquero Horses
La Victoria is a 1996 14.3HH grulla mare. I have had the pleasure of owning this mare since January 2002 and she is the reason why I am so in love with this breed. She is an outstanding producer and fantastic mother. Victoria has been color tested to be homozygous black which means that she will never have a red based foal no matter the color of the sire she is bred to. She has had 5 healthy foals that have all been grulla in color. She is due for her 6th foal in late March 2014. She has been my partner in crime for 12 years now and is the mare that got me involved so dedicatedly to her breed. She is a blast to go down the trails with and tries her best to do what is asked of her. She is a typical Spanish mare in that she is high spirited, intelligent, hard working, and ever ready to obey at the slightest gesture.
Victoria has been semi-retired from being my main riding mount to fulfill her duties as a broodmare and help her breed survive by providing high quality foals into this world.
Sulphur's Arista is a 2000 14HH claybank dun mare. What causes her light color is a mystery. She has been color tested to be ee aa DD and negative for cream, pearl, and silver. Arista is a very sweet mare that loves attention. She is very easy to handle as well as an easy breeder. Arista has had 3 foals before I bought her. Two were purebred and one was by an Arabian stallion.
Arista has been bred to Cesaré Borgia de España Antigua for a June 2017 foal. Color possibilities are red dun or grulla. Foal will be offered for sale.
Black Rose is an alpha mare that is very personable. She was born in 2000 and captured from the Sulphur HMA in 2001. She enjoys attention and scratches and is also knows how to ride, but will be going to training shortly to refine her skills. Rose stands around 14.1HH and is very correct in breed type. She is an proven broodmare and is a rare black color to boot! She has elevated movement and is just gorgeous to look at. Rose is heterozygous black which means that she has a chance at producing the elusive chestnut!
Tiliangh CD is an APSL inscribed and IALHA registered purebred Lusitano mare that was bred by Carpe Diem in Oregon. She is by Nostradamus and out of Golilla. She is a Veiga lined mare whose sire was bred by the famous Interagro farm in Brazil. She is a 15.2HH bay with two hind socks and a blaze. She has produced several purebred Lusitano foals with the last filly by Odin. She is a palomino. Tilly is being bred again to Odin (Umbaba x Epoca) - full brother to the famous Saphiro - in April this year for a March 2016 foal. Odin is a smokey black, so we are expecting possible foal coats of palomino, buckskin, black, or bay. I plan on presenting Tilly for revision in the APSL.
