Avatar's all grown up! He just turned five and has been in training for a year with the talented western trainer, champion reiner and roper Roy Pelkey. Roy was a dear friend and dressage student of the late Jesús Piris, co-owner of Andalusians Quinta Córdova. Because of Jesús' influence, Roy is now embarking on a new journey--the sport of Working Equitation, an exciting new sport originating in Portugal and Spain and now taking the world by storm. Via a partnership with the owner of Andalusians Quinta Cordova and of Avatar, Avatar is now Roy's Working Equitation prospect and partner!
Here are Avatar and Roy in a recent clinic with Luis Lucio, dressage Olympian from Spain
Old News and Baby Pictures
Avatar is Quinta Cordova's latest addition, a HUGE and excitingly promising stud quality colt who is infinitely kind, willing and intelligent, just like all of our babies. He is beautifully put together with a gorgeous neck, head, shoulder and topline, with innate elasticity and strength.
BREAKING NEWS!!! Avatar's Spanish carta has arrived!
This means he is inscribed with ANCCE (in the Spanish studbook)
and his IALHA papers are complete as well.
He is BLACK (DNA confirmed) with the grey gene, just like his sire Ziljan. What's more, he also carries the rare CHESTNUT gene (eEaa). Avatar does NOT carry the bay gene. He is heterozygous for grey, which means he will be able to produce color and will pass on black (ALL his offspring will either be black or carry the black gene, thus being capable of producing black themselves,) chestnut and grey (and possibly dun). When bred to mares with the black or chestnut genes he will be able to produce black and chestnut babies.
Avatar's sire Ziljan has produced lots of color, including a peanut-butter dun from a non-dun mare (light, bright red bay with a distinct wine-colored dorsal stripe) and several black foals, and we expect Avatar will do the same, and will also be able to produce chestnut as well.
Avatar is a full brother to our rising star, the PRE Novelero. Avatar will be gorgeous, athletic and kind, a truly top-quality stallion.
What is this loudly yapping being? (a welsh corgi, of course)
