Their 'type' is as varied as their colors. But what they all have in common is their outstanding pedigrees, a wonderful temperament and solid conformation. All of the mares are purebred PRE Andalusians.
The resulting foals have been a testament to our breeding plan. We believe that they speak for themselves.... feel free to look thru our pages to see both Oreo foals and foals sired by other stallions.
PATINA DE BRAVIO ORO
2011 Oreo x Perla de Bravio
This 2011 mare represents the ultimate success in blending the foundation Bravio bloodlines with the imported Smokey Black stallion, Oriundo VG ("Oreo"). We thought this would be an outstanding blend of pearl from Bravio & cream from Oreo....and we were right! She got color, conformation and the temperament we find instrumental to our success. She is such a character. No lack of personality in this gal. And to the best of our knowledge, she is the very first United States bred and born PRE Buckskin Pearl filly!! Her dam is the bay Bravio daughter "Perla de Bravio" (see below). See additional photos under Photo Gallery.
PERLA DE BRAVIO
This big 16H+ bay PRE mare has been very generous with her unique Pearl gene. Three of her first four foals are Buckskin Pearls; including Patina de Bravio Oro (see above), Rocoso Dorado (see Sold Boys page) and her 2015 filly. This Bravio daughter is throwing the very best attributes that Bravio offered our long term breeding program, including lofty movement and a commanding presence. A special thank you to Melissa Adair for allowing us to lease this exceptional mare on a long term basis.
PELE DE PERLA
2009 Grey Pearl Bravio Granddaughter
See Pele Video Link (as yearling) at:
Pele de Perla is a line bred Bravio Granddaughter with tons of character and personality! From the very beginning she stole our hearts. In 2013 she gave us the bay pearl Oreo daughter, Adagia de Oro (see photo below), and in 2015 she gave us Nobleza (a tall elegant Oreo daughter - currently available for purchase). She is also a first pick riding horse with talent that lends itself to dressage...and so much more.
A classic beauty, this 2011 PRE filly is from Oreo's first foal crop and out of Ametza (an Axis daughter). Axis is a black, Legion of Merit stallion imported from Spain with two lines back to Agente and Maluso! "Ebby" as we lovingly call her, carries a chestnut gene she inherited from her mother and the cream gene she was gifted from her sire. So she is a smokey black with one copy of the grey gene and she is capable of producing Palominos and Cremellos. Her first foal, (born March of 2015) appears to be a Smokey Black colt and is an excellent example of old world Andalusian style and carriage. He's round, stout and has a natural ability for airs above the ground; all while maintaining an even temperament. Ebby has out produced herself and we look forward to many years of outstanding foals from her.
An approved PRE Bravio daughter, "Tida" stands over 16h tall and has already produced TWO buckskin colts in her breeding career. Her first colt now lives with his new family in Virginia and her most recent Buckskin colt (2015) is currently available for purchase. Both are sired by our Smokey Black stallion, Oreo. Tida is out of Ametza, a daughter of the imported black Legion of Merit stallion, Axis, with lineage to the great dressage lines, including Invasor (an Olympic medalist). Tida is back in foal to Oreo for 2016.
""Ella" produced a beautiful buckskin filly in 2013 and a darling bay filly in 2015. She is currently back in foal, but this time to the imported Paco Marti Cream/Pearl stallion, REY PM. That 2016 foal will either be a Buckskin or Bay Pearl. Either way....it's sure to be another spectacular example of it's Spanish heritage. Ella offers size (16h+), inspiring dressage movement and a sweet, amiable personality. Ella is also a sensible and sure footed trail horse that has put many miles on our rugged Murrieta trails. She is sired by Cortesano XV and out of Bonita RHF. This mare is also offered for sale as a package opportunity. Call for details.
ADAGIA de ORO
2013 Bay pearl sired by Oreo and out of Pele de Perla (a Bravio granddaughter). This young up and coming super star is turning out to be quite the sport horse prospect...with fancy moves and a winning show ring attitudue. We feel she has the potential to be as versatile as her famous great grandsire, Bravio. Adagia is a shining light for the future of PRE Andalusian breeding. Watch for her in the years to come.
TILLY DE LUZ
With an eye on the future, this Buckskin Pearl (carries chestnut) holds great promise. She's got that 'look at me' attitudue that makes a great show horse; the genes to produce foundation quality foals and the moves to go almost any direction in Equine sports. Born in 2015, she is sired by the imported Palomino PRE stallion, Palomo, and out of the very special producer, Perla de Bravio (see above).
