Linaje III, whom we affectionately call "Nube" (Cloud) is truly an angel among horses. Everyone who meets her is immediately drawn to her and the rest of our herd just worships her as well. She has a regal, very peaceful and deep quality about her that is hard to describe--if she were human she would probaby be considered very spiritual.

Nube is one of the last three daughters of the great stallion Genil who was bred on the famous Cardenas ranch in Spain. Genil was Champion of Champions of Spain at the age of three (!) before he was exported. His offspring are coveted for their beauty and noble temperaments.
Nube possesses the precious qualities that has made the Pure Spanish Horse famous for centuries. During the renaissance times, they were coveted by royalty all over Europe as a "horse fit for a king in his hour of triumph". As not all royalty were necessarily gifted horsemen, they needed a steed which could appear fiery and spirited (and beautiful) while actually possessing a kind, unflappable, reliable and obedient nature. Nube has all these attributes in spades!
