2013 BUCKSKIN PRE FILLY - SOLD (Congratulations to Brandi Fink of NM)
Zamora is a dark sooty buckskin, this young mare looks more like a Grulla! It's a most unusual color. She definitely gets lots of attention. She also has the extra long, thick mane & tail. Lots of icing on the cake! She's ready for someone to start her groundwork in preparation for starting under saddle. Priced at $16,000. Located at Sommer Ranch in So.CA.
SOLD 2009 Andalusian/Arabian Cross Mare SOLD August 2015
Health and time restraints force the sale of this registered 1/2 Andalusian mare. Chica is started under saddle, safe to ride, but needs finishing. She can 'turn it up' but can be brought back down easily. Never offered to buck or take off. She ponies off another horse. Smooth gaits! Soft mouth. She has a good mind and sweet nature. She is curious and loves to learn. Chica is correct and athletic. Handled since birth and exposed to many things. Respectful on the ground. She currently lives with a mini and gets turnred out with 5 other horses daily. Ridden on the trail. Barefoot because her feet are strong and doesn't need shoes. She is correct with straight legs. No known health problems. Owner thinks this mare will make a great trick horse, a nice English show prospect or a flashy trail/endurance horse. This mare is a Bravio Granddaughter on sire's side and a Huck Finn/Aladdinn Granddaughter on Dam's side. Located in So. CA. Priced at $4500. OBO to approved home. (K.E.) .
AZULADA - 2014 Smokey Black Oreo Filly
Facebook is a buzz about this mysterious colored PRE filly by Oreo and out of the Bravio daughter, Constentida "Tida". Note that the first few photos were taken when she was just 8 hours old! And legs almost as long as moms (who stands 16h tall)!! Born 3/23/14.

Video footage of Azulada:
Adalita (Bravio Granddaughter) was in her first show last weekend (May 2014) that had All Breed Classes (that's about the best thing we have locally ;) I showed her in the halter class as well as showmanship under two judges in tw o days. Can I just brag and tell you that she placed third in All Breed Halter Mare both days (out of a class of 5 and 6), winning over QH mares in our class (which almost never happens in a QH show!). And she/we placed first both days in showmanship. She was phenomenal! Calm, quiet, patient, and available in spite of this being her first show experience. I was so proud of her! I have some some pics that a gal took of us and printed out - so will take a picture of the pictures and forward to you when I get home this evening.
I am so in love with my "little A". She has matured into such a sweet, sweet, best Pal, kinda gal :)

2008 Grey Pearl Bravio Granddaughter
Arista and her full sister Pele de Perla (see Foundation Mares) are both ANCEE approved PRE mares with two crosses to Bravio. Arista carries his qualities for trainability, personality, movement and rugged good looks. Sired by Rioso (a Pearl carrying Bravio son). And yes....she is a gray Pearl. Her first Oreo colt in 2012 sold within 3 days of birth. Tamrindo is tall, robust, and has awe inspiring movement. His hock action has a stride to admire! And her 2013 filly was equally nice! On May 17, 2014 Arista presented us with an Oreo colt of a 'different' color; a handsome golden colt (the first and only Smokey Black Pearl in the United States). Arista sold and now lives with the Souto family in Canada.

2011 PSL Buckskin Mare
Stop the press! This Buckskin Lusitano mare is a real head turner and a favorite model for visiting photographers. She has brilliant color, HUGE movement and cat like agility. And she definitely inherited the extra long, extra thick 'hair' gene. A special thank you to Diane G. for giving this mare such a loving home.
WOW!! This is one of the prettiest mares you'll find anywhere. A very rare find too...a Palomino Pearl Andalusian. She is one of our most photographed horses. Her brilliant shine and commanding presence made her a stand out in any crowd. Now living in Canada, we find ourselves thinking about her often. She gave us the very first U.S. bred and born double pearl Andalusian colt (now owned by Ramona Dejong and named Genisis - see Sold Boys). Additional photos of Guindaleza in Photo Gallery Movie Work.
We had the privilege of living with Ametza for over a decade. Over the years, she mothered many of the best Sommer Ranch bred foals, including our 2011 Smokey Black filly, Ebonista, and our broodmare & pleasure riding horse, Constentida. She is also the Granddam to our pearl carriers, Pele de Perla & Arista. It was hard to see her leave, but she now resides with a wonderful family in Virginia where she is expecting another Oreo foal later in 2013. Ametza carries only one copy of the gray gene and one copy of the chestnut and black genes. We are very grateful for her contribution to our foundation bloodlines. Ametza is sired by the imported Black PRE stallion, Axis (Legion of Merit in Spain) and has dressage bloodlines going back to Invasor, an Olympic medalist.
