Have you ever dreamed of owning an Andalusian, but they are just out of your budget? My focus is to produce Andalusian and Lusitano crosses that are affordable and possibly better than the real thing. Sired by a well-bred pure Spanish Andalusian, and out of a high quality Paint mare that is as versatile as they come. From dressage, eventing, and driving to western pleasure, reining, cutting, speed events and reining. She and her foals have done it all.
This filly is out of my old Paint show mare, Soaring Fever. The mare was hi-point and reserve in 7 different events. Multiple ROM and Honor Roll mare with only limited showing. She even had a few 1st places at Paint World and a couple of overall top 5s. We dabbled in just about every discipline from hunter/jumper, dressage, and eventing to reining, western pleasure, trail, and speed events. There were days at the Paint shows where we showed in 22 classes...starting in halter first thing in the morning and beating World Champions in the speed events at the end of the night. We even fox-hunted, team sorted, cut cows, and roped steers. She has produced cutting, pleasure, and speed event horses. All of her foals display her class and quality that was passed down to her from her own sire, the APHA Supreme Champion, Yellow Fever. The mare has several babies here at the farm, and grand babies, and great-grand babies. She really stamps them. They are some of my favorite riding horses. But Paints arent selling these days, so I wanted to do something different to make her foals really stand out...
This is her first cross on an Andalusian. I am very pleased to see her substance and athleticism mixed with the Spanish features...a very round powerful hindquarters, very clean and refined head and neck. Along with that, she has a very well-built shoulder with lovely extension.
Her sire, Templar M is a grandson of Indiano XVIII, the lion of Spain. He is by the stallion, Conquistador XII, that has sired two of my Champion Half Andalusians at halter. Templar’s bloodlines are a culmination of 4 of the finest Bocado breeders in Spain. He carries the lineage of Lovera, Romero Benitez and Don Juan Manuel Urquijo from his dam, and from his sire Romero Benitez. Miguel Angel Cardenas & Isabel Merello Terry. Both Lovera and Romero Benitez dominated the Spanish championship awards circles during the 1980-90s. Miguel Angel Cardenas is considered the top winning breeder in Spain.
This filly has always been a looker. She is already fairly good-sized for a yearling. She is almost as tall as her momma. I think this filly could go any direction just like her momma did. But she will be just a little more special. She looks like she will have a luxurious long mane and tail to go with her bright red bay coloring. Whether you ride English or Western, I don't think you can go wrong with this filly. She is brave, bold, and intelligent. She thrives on attention and wants to please. She is also very good sized for her age.
