Our Stallion Cortijero XXIII is a stunning example of a PRE in a different colour.
He is Chestnut with one copy of pearl or Isabela (Isabela is the name given to the Pearl gene in Spain) . Cortijero has a coat colour of Gold and in the sunlight he shimmers. He seems to pass this amazing colour to his foals along with his incredible temperament, movements and bone!
As most of these diffrent colours were almost eradicated from the breed, they are now quite rare, so the chestnut, dun, buckskin foal that was almost worthless less than ten years ago is now worth a considerable amount more.
Buckskins have never been banned from the main studbook, as in Spain they are regarded as a type of bay, but they have not been very desirable. Palomino purebreds have not been registered until 2002 as they come from the chestnut gene.
This is a picture of Leviton JL.
Leviton is a double pearl or Isabella colt,
this picture was taken when he was still with his dam in 2017.
We can only look forward to the future with Leviton and hope to see him out and about competing and having babies in a few years. He is actually a half brother to our mare pictured above called Lluna SA.
