Mercedes, Do you have a favorite stallion?
Since selling my stallion I haven't stayed up-to-date on who's still standing.
If one could swing it, Interagro is THE place for Lusitano stallions. You can't find better Lusitano's anywhere. I'm not sure if they ship semen. I've only ever known them to have a yearly sale of some of their young stock. They do have a US contact now. Anyway, if one can't get semen from one of their stallions, at least one can look at photos of absolutely stunningly perfect Lusitanos.
Here's a link to their site. Quinio is a prime example of an ideal Lusitano for crossing with a well-structured QH mare. Man, I love these people, they even tell you the percentage of blood from the various bloodlines. Quínio Interagro
There were some nice stallions in NY...gosh, what was the name of that place...let me look in my files...ah, here it is...Caballos de los Cristiani. Caballos de los Cristiani - Stallions
Yep, they do still have some superior quality individuals. I also see they've ventured out into some less 'classic' individuals to try and grab some of the sporthorse market. Compare Arete (very classic) to Bellus (very sporthorse).
For an Azteca I'd go with the classic type. Demo is also classic.
It's too bad, they had a black stallion who was sheer perfection and it looks as if Malandante is no longer standing...he may even have passed away...he was quite an individual as well.
