Hello all -

We recently purchased a lovely little straight Spanish mare, CP Lilly Fair (L Habac x L Lady Fair). If she does well in the WP shows this coming year we MAY breed her...but the sire would have to be straight Spanish as well. It has come to our attention that such classical horses are a bit difficult to come by here in the States, so I was hoping if I may enlist people more "in the know". I am aware of the guys over at Stanley Ranch, and a few others...wondering as to who else we may be missing.

What about studs located in Spain? Canada? Elsewhere?

Cost would not be an issue for the right match, but he'd definitely need to have an exceptional neck to correct Lilly's shorter more low set one.
Keep in mind this is still very very hypothetical, with a strong possibility of us just buying a baby in a year's time. But, nonetheless we are still quite curious as to just what is out there.

Simply because I love her, two pics of our mare. Please excuse the raunchy yellow tail bag!

She is lovely!
I have a Classical Spanish gelding named HAA Marco Rojo, he is a darling guy. My mare TS Paarden Mia is one quarter Spanish, as well.Spanish horses are so trainable and they bond well with their "person".
Best of luck finding the perfect mate to your beautiful mare, if that is the route you choose.

While I am very fond of Exodus I, Stanley Ranch's Czantiago is very upright and has a lovely neck. Are you located close enough to northern Nevada to see him? His first foals are lovely!

Thank you so much! I would love to see photos of your two.
Lilly is a very loving and kind girl, and probably one of the most willing horses I've ever met. She will go beyond the stars for you and so incredibly forgiving. We are hesitant about breeding, due to the same old of the economy and all the unwanted horses out there...hence our decision to see if she really has the ability we think she does. It has also been decided by all parties involved that the foal should be kept straight or as close to straight Spanish as possible, or there is really no point to the endeavour. This of course is making things tricky.

I checked out Los Acres...we are relatively close to them and I am going to shoot them an email. Tiberio* is quite special. We would rather avoid a grey, but for the right horse might be able to make an exception. El Perfecto is beautiful, but doesn't quite seem like the right fit.

We are local to the Stanley Ranch, and will be soon contacting the Stanleys. Czantiago is definitely turning into a promising boy and is being given heavy consideration for Lilly.

Katherine - Thank you...we are blessed to know her, and she definitely has a forever home here. :)

I really love the Straight Spanish stallion *Val Pacha. He's chestnut. You can see pictures of him on Unser Spanish Arabians website.
