of our foals!
Our mares have been
selected with the same criteria and thoroughness as our selection of Tesoro. We
believe that we must have excellent mares to breed excellent foals.
We believe that the baby's
personalities are influenced by the dam's care and temperament as well as
their genetics. So with
this in mind we would like to show you the mares that we have chosen to breed to Tesoro.
Galleta Pisadas (Cookie)
Born June 29, 1992
Galleta is an
Isabella Palomino. She has a wonderful disposition and a smooth FAST Largo. She has given us
beautiful babies. With only two weeks of training - and that 2 years previous to when I
purchased her, we went on Ride '97. She was the only Paso among Quarter Horses, Arabs, and
Thoroughbreds. She was also the only horse "barefoot" on the 3-hour trail ride.
She is about 14-2 H and was 7 months pregnant. She not only kept up with the group of
about 17 other horses, she was not out of breath when we stopped for a breather!
At the end of the trail ride, she
was still fresh. We were allowed to use the edge of a grass airstrip, and I put her into
her Largo, just to show off! She arched her neck and raised her tail in pride. Her
silver-white mane and tail flying, we went down the airstrip! At the end of the ride, one of the men - who looked like
he had been riding all his life, said, 'That little girl was the best behaved horse of the
group! She did not put a foot wrong, and I was watching because I could not believe that
anyone would bring a horse that green on a trail ride!" Since everyone was commenting
about me letting her go barefoot, I had a farrier who was there check out her feet. There
were a couple of tiny chips at the very edge of the hoof wall, but she pronounced
Galleta's feet in excellent condition. (If I were going to ride her on rocky trails every
day, I would put her in shoes, but otherwise, she does not need shoes - a big expense over
the life of any horse!)
Galleta will go as slow and carefully, or as
elegant as you wish - and she is ridden in a side pull, like all my other Pasos. My Dad is
77, and we just went on about a 2-hour trail ride - Dad on Galleta - me on Rosa. Galleta
had her baby at her side, but she took good care of my Dad! And her filly, Magica learned to go over 3' wide wooden bridges, through water and
over rough trails following her mom as a natural part of life. With her wonderful breeding her superb
ability and temperament are not surprising! Not
for Sale at this time.
