I swore i would not buy any more horses that were not arabian mares that I felt would compliment Matiz. Absolutely insisted i would not. I apparently have no self control
I purchased an in utero foal (and possibly two or three).
But if they are girls.. I will be able to breed them to Matiz eventually.
The one I have for sure purchased is going to be grey (sire is homozygous) by Zla Korazon x Zla Caricia Seda. Straight Spanish lines. I am so excited to add some of the lines of the Szed breeding program to my herd, especially through Szed Hermosa. I have admired her trot (so floaty and powerful at the same time) for a few years. Zla Korazon is Sasaki x Washoe De Makkora. WD Makkora is a full sister to Sample, Example, Choyce, Chozen, and Qualified (all 6 by Barich De Washoe). Example is the dam of El Perfecto, Qualified is a broodmare in Europe (i think Germany), Choyce was a foundation mare for Herder Arabians, and Chozen is one of Ok Arabias mares (owners of Granizar, Zaon, Sasaki, and the late La Saguro). I'm still tracking down info on Sample. Caricia Seda is a chestnut Kar Pepet x Szed hermosa (Szed Payaso) daughter. I expect a Sh type foal. I would love a filly, but I wouldn't mind a colt either. either way, I expect a nice foal.
The other two I am looking into are Zla Korazon x Asia HA (Cimero d/ Aram gd). Asia and Kory's oldest is a colt in Australia, and there daughter is now residing at a new farm in the U.S. to grow up a little (she's a yearling) before being shown and then becoming her owner's foundation mare. I really am hoping for a filly in this one.
And last but not least is Zla Gaetan x RV Marissa. Zla Gaetan is a rare Respingo (Zangano) son out of the aforementioned Szed Hermosa. Really great SH type. Respingo has had few foals but of the two of showing age are Rosalind B (champion cutting horse) and Adal Zurita, SH extrodinaire. Both are also proven producers. RV Marissa is by Kar Pepet and out of a mare of Pepete and An Malik lines. RV Marissa has 2x to Pepete and Zla Gaetan has 1.. so the foal will be triple Pepete.
All will be 2009 foals. Now I am freezing my check book and credit cards. This is becoming a compulsion (or sickness) and if I purchase more, I fear family and friends will stage an intervention!! I may need to go into hiding
