I am really excited that my mare La Victoria is expecting her 6th foal. She just loves being a mom and am really excited to see this foal.
I bred her to my recently acquired old blooded California Vaquero Horse stallion (Spanish type Sulphur horse) Senior Diego in April. She hasn't come back into season and her belly already has a slight bulge. I am so looking forward to seeing this foal in March! I wonder if this foal will be her 6th grulla or if she will produce her first zebra dun (only two colors this foal will be).
Here is the sire Diego (he is going to training while I am in Navy boot camp and A school. I am having him trained in cowboy dressage and working equitation).
I am hoping my other mare Arista also took which would add two purebred California Vaquero Horse foals to a population that numbers less than 100 in the world. In that regard, I hope others will recognize and help them in their plight before it is too late and I am also looking forward to the prospect of finally being able to acquire a small chunk of land to expand my breeding and training program.
Exciting times for California's heritage old Spanish horse breed!
