Took Artico to bredding station and he was such a good boy doing his first trailer-trip, loeading and standig still. He is very sensitive but stay cool in all new situations. He is now working out everyday and getting his semen tested in all kind of ways. As it turns out he has excellent quality swimmers, great motility and an incredible amount calculated to 18thousand million in one collection!! That should be plenty for anyone right!? Here's the semen refrigrerated 24 hours, party swimmers!

Artico is tested negative of Arteritis which is a common disease in Spain which can be transmitted also through breeding. 


On friday most handsome Villy will get a visit and be testridden by Sweden! 


Donoso got his medical shoeing and is now free from lameness! The fracture will still take time to heal so I am still handwalking him. He is full of energy and wants to move but is so well behaved and controls himself even with the mares. So civilized, simply the best. 



And here the mares and babies this morning, Indi and Hidalgo are now 1 respectively 2 months old. Absoutely adorable both of them, Hidalgo is gorgeous, very social and so tall. Indi has this super special personality, sensitive and curious with an expression to die for, he melts my heart completely, phew!

Yes Donoso is lame on left hind and as it turns out he has a fractured hoof.   He probably injured himself whilst covering and will now be in rehabilitation/recovery for 2-3 months. Yes it sucks but I will make sure he will be good,..    


Meanwhile Villy has started on his flying changes and is being seriously into his work. Start is doing build-up workouts, he is looking tip-top again with shiny coat and roams around free on the farm grazing and chilling out under the fresno trees. We have warm temps now and babies slept outside for the first time yesterday. 

Brillantino is now broken in and Artico has did his debute as a breedingstallion!! Tino is being a exceptionally well behaved student I have been told. Good boy, will probably go and visit him next week!

Artico turns out to be born to breed! He has now covered Novedosa in a perfect manner, we have also collected him and checked status of semen and he has super quality swimmers, these ones!!

Raining raining!! My wells are full and beyond and you can almost hear the grass is growing! 
Tino baby has left for his school, good boy went straight into the lorry and he arrived well. Did a photosession and alittle lounging before he left so you can see his development, Video on his sales page here; 
Tino is a player, always jumping swiftly and making high school movements over ground which is very easy for him as he is super athletic and elastic. He's not a docile horse, he's intense and loves to express himself as a stallion beautifully.

I'm not a good seller when it comes to my horses! I just hate to write FOR SALE beacuse they are all keepers and it's so hard to choose which one/s are going. So I have decided to offer Brillantino, Chula and Fiero for sale and see what happens. If one of them sells I will re-asess and might decide to keep the other two and take them off the sale. This my strategy to leave it up to the horse to attract their new owner and avoiding how to choose which one is going,.. Like this I leave it up to the universe to decide their future and not me!

So here's Chula she's the coolest lady with the biggest personality, makes me laugh because she thinks alot and quickly and figures out fast how to get what she wants. With all that selfconfidence, elegance and eagerness to learn she is just made for activity - dressage or working equitation or both.
