Their 'type' is as varied as their colors. But what they all have in common is their outstanding pedigrees, a wonderful temperament and solid conformation. All of the mares are purebred PRE Andalusians.
The resulting foals have been a testament to our breeding plan. We believe that they speak for themselves.... feel free to look thru our pages to see both Oreo foals and foals sired by other stallions.
PATINA DE BRAVIO ORO
2011 Oreo x Perla de Bravio
This 2011 mare represents the ultimate success in blending the foundation Bravio bloodlines with the imported Smokey Black stallion, Oriundo VG ("Oreo"). We thought this would be an outstanding blend of pearl from Bravio & cream from Oreo....and we were right! She got color, conformation and the temperament we find instrumental to our success. She is such a character. No lack of personality in this gal. And to the best of our knowledge, she is the very first United States bred and born PRE Buckskin Pearl filly!! Her dam is the bay Bravio daughter "Perla de Bravio" (see below). See additional photos under Photo Gallery. Patina has given us several outstanding foals including our double pearl 2018 filly, Navi de la Paz (by Pearl of Peace) and Mazikeen de la Paz, another Pearl of Peace filly that arrived in 2020. See photos of Navi down below.
PERLA DE BRAVIO
This big 16H+ bay PRE mare has been very generous with her unique Pearl gene. Three of her first four foals are Buckskin Pearls; including Patina de Bravio Oro (see above), Rocoso Dorado (see Sold Boys page) and her 2015 filly. This Bravio daughter is throwing the very best attributes that Bravio offered our long term breeding program, including lofty movement and a commanding presence.
PELE DE PERLA
2009 Grey Pearl Bravio Granddaughter
Pele de Perla is a line bred Bravio Granddaughter with tons of character and personality! From the very beginning she stole our hearts. In 2013 she gave us the bay pearl Oreo daughter, Adagia de Oro (see photo below). Pele is mother to some of our very best horses, she also produced our 2016 double pearl stallion, Apollo del Solis and the 2017 Buckskin Pearl filly, Isabeau "Izzie". She is also a first pick riding horse with talent that lends itself to dressage...and so much more. She is expecting an Oreo foal in spring 2021.

A classic beauty, this 2011 PRE filly is from Oreo's first foal crop and out of Ametza (an Axis daughter). Axis is a black, Legion of Merit stallion imported from Spain with two lines back to Agente and Maluso! "Ebby" as we lovingly call her, carries a chestnut gene she inherited from her mother and the cream gene she was gifted from her sire. So she is a smokey black with one copy of the grey gene and she is capable of producing Palominos and Cremellos. Her first foal, (born March of 2015) was a Smokey Black colt and is an excellent example of old world Andalusian style and carriage. He's round, stout and has a natural ability for airs above the ground; all while maintaining an even temperament. Her second foal, was a stunning Chestnut Pearl colt. Her 2018 filly is our Smokey Cream (double cream on black base) filly, Lunazul, who also inherited a chestnut gene from either her mother or sire, Rey PM. And Ebby's 2019 foal is a big, sweet buckskin filly. Ebby has consistently out produced herself and we look forward to many years of outstanding foals from her. She is due in 2021 with a foal by the perlino PRE stallion, Feliz du Carel. This cross is capable of producing a true cremello!!
An approved PRE Bravio daughter, "Tida" stands over 16h tall and has already produced several buckskin colts in her breeding career all sired by our Smokey Black stallion, Oreo. Tida is out of Ametza, a daughter of the imported black Legion of Merit stallion, Axis, with lineage to the great dressage lines, including Invasor (an Olympic medalist). Tida has recently been retired from her breeding career and enjoys long trail rides and babysitting youngsters. Thank you 'Tida' for our lovely foals!
With an eye on the future, this Buckskin Pearl (carries chestnut) holds great promise. She's got that 'look at me' attitudue that makes a great show horse; the genes to produce foundation quality foals and the moves to go almost any direction in Equine sports. Born in 2015, she is sired by the imported Palomino PRE stallion, Palomo, and out of the very special producer, Perla de Bravio (see above) and she has the BEST personality of any horse we've ever seen. We swear this horse has a great sense of humor. She is truly a member of our family; one of a kind! She gave us a handsome Perlino colt in 2020 by the stunning Palomino stallion, Morante RM. We are expecting another foal out of Chantilly and our spectular double pearl stallion, Apollo del Solis, in 2021! Truly exciting potential with this cross.
ADAGIA de ORO
2013 Bay pearl sired by Oreo and out of Pele de Perla (a Bravio granddaughter). This young up and coming super star is turning out to be quite the sport horse prospect...with fancy moves and a winning show ring attitudue. We feel she has the potential to be as versatile as her famous great grandsire, Bravio. Adagia is a shining light for the future of PRE Andalusian breeding. She produced a stunning 2018 buckskin filly by Carmelo PM II and she gave us a handsome buckskin colt by Rey PM in 2020. Adagia is a half sister to Apollo del Solis (same mother). (Adagia is available for purchase.)
ISABEAU DEL SOLIS
Once again our beautiful grey pearl mare, Pele, outdid herself with this 2017 Buckskin Pearl (one cream gene/one pearl gene on bay base color - no grey gene) mare sired by Carmelo PM II. (See reference stallions on Breeding Stallions page). This 16h, intelligent mare has a free floating dressage trot. She was bred to a 17h imported Palomino stallion in 2020 with very exciting possibilities for 2021. We can't wait to see what she produces!!
LUNAZUL DEL SOLIS
Lunazul is our 2018 Smokey Cream (double cream on black base Ee aa CrCR Gg) sired by Rey PM and out of our fancy mover, Ebonista (see above). Tall, very well conformed and super friendly and playful. She's a complete package for a breeding or under saddle career. We are looking forward to adding her to our outstanding broodmare band in 2021. We plan to breed her to Feliz du Carel for a guarenteed double cream foal. Call for details!
NAVI DE LA PAZ
Stop the press! This 2018 filly is big news. First Pearl of Peace (see Breeding Stallion page) foal born in the United States and she is a winner in every respect. She is a BIG gal with show stopping movement. And the sweetest of personalities. Her metallic golden glow is just the icing on the cake. We truly love her and can't wait to breed her to our Apollo del Solis in 2021 for a GUARANTEED DOUBLE PEARL FOAL! Put in your requests now. Those babies will be worth their weight in GOLD!
