Yeguada Marqués de Urquijo - Family smells



  • "elegance and power" is a great way to put it, these boys look like they'd beat me up and steal my lunch money on their way to ballet practice, beautiful horses!



  • Thank you so much guys! I am very grateful for the reception that the album has had.

  • How awesome, Borja - it's clear the effort you've already put into this album. It's great to see so many Andalusians around, I'm always delighted to see more Baroques here.
    Also, your guy Utrerano looks like a champ :heart_eyes:



  • He's still a baby and already so famous. What a guy <3



  • @Fernanda-Luchetta: Thank you very much, the truth is that I try to make my album have its own style :)
    @Anna-Foster: He is incredible :heart:

  • The mares are just as stunning as the stallions.
    Side note: I never understood why red horses are called chestnuts. I think Desaire dark-reddish coat reminds me more of a chestnut in color than for example Cautiva. Both however equally beautiful.



  • Loving how beauty are that mares. Desaire really reminds me of her mother Mandarina, she was one of my first PRE mares on Sims.



  • @Anna-Foster: Thanks!! In Spain the coat of Desaire is called "castaño morcillo" or perhaps a "castaño encendido", in English I think it's Seal Brown.
    @Vera-Alvarez: Your girls are awesome! They have me in love with their coats and conformations :heart:

  • Ugh, such beauties and an Eponine Offspring! I'm so happy <3



  • I'm never tired of seeing Andalusians! Also, always heart warming to see HCC lines around - I have quite some myself <3



  • Ach my browser doesn't let me see anything you type, it all show's up a question marks!, but that stallion is absolutely stunning!



  • To bad i can't see your pictures anymore :(



  • Thanks :)

    Yéovil AF

    I know I have many horses, but sometimes I need to check sales to look for young promises and this is how this story begins. In one of my searches I found a post by @Ian-Salvatore , in which he sold about four or five young horses, unfortunately they had already been sold but at the end of the auction there was a post with images of a beautiful gelding chestnut.

    His name is Yéovil AF, he is a four-year-old Swedish Warmblood and was initiated in dressage. He seemed to be a very handsome and friendly boy, but from what we could read about him he was quite the opposite when he was whole, so he was gelded.

    Yesterday around five o'clock in the afternoon a small trailer arrived in the stables where "Ahlmann Farm" could be read next to the logo of a black horse. After reading the name of the stable I knew that it was the young chestnut. I hurriedly approached the conduit to check and affirm if it was him.

    The first thing I did after getting Vil off the trailer was to take him to the track to stretch and see some movement.

    He is a boy with character and I like that!

  • What a handsome boy Borja <3



  • He has such a lovely face shape and coat color. :heart_decoration:



  • Thanks to both :smile: he's a very handsome boy!

    An old photo, for new beginnings

    Since childhood I was interested in the breeding of sports horses, so I always liked to look at different breeds to see the qualities of each and get the perfect crosses. Because of this hobby my stables have always been filled with an infinity of breeds such as the PRE, Arabian, warmbloods...

    Last year I decided to stop, focusing only on my Andalusian horses, because the number of animals was very high. But after a while I think I need to have a thousand breeds again and enjoy the characteristics of each one.


    This photo shows Rika VC, a horse already retired from the world of competition with 102 points in SJ, and her daughter Anarquia de Borges (x Lubricante de Borges). Apart from being a very good mother, Rika gives her descendants a good ability to jump, highlighting her light and elastic movements, but unfortunately she is not a tall mare, so when preparing the breeding there are looking stallions with strength and power for jumping 1.50-1.60m.

  • Yéovil is real handsome boy! I love his coat, and he's got the cutest little face! I'm excited to see him under saddle! looks like a dressage star to-be

    And it's funny how whenever someone says "I only want this breed" you end up with an abundance of everything but that breed. So many lovely breeds out there, it's hard to stick to one :sneezing_face: and well wishes for Rika Vc on a good retirement! Totally understand the short horse struggle, Good luck finding a stud! I've only got one show jumping stud, but I think he's only just 17 hh, I can't check right now. Though if you're interested I'd love to help!
