Amante was shipped to his new home in Pennsylvania 3-30-04.  We hope Chris Stull will enjoy Amante as much as we did.  We'll miss his sweet personality.

 

Here's some pictures from the day he left.  Amante had injured his leg 2 weeks ago so he is still bandaged up.  Adam was there to see Amante off too.  Earlier in the morning we hand walked Amante so he could play and stretch his legs before his trip to PA.  Click here to see the photo album.

This guy was just HUGE when he was born.  He was all knees & elbows & legs so to speak.

(one day old - left) 

  (3 months old 9-21-03- above)       

Amante is bold, brave, curious, self assured, friendly, and is huge boned colt and we expect him to be well over 16 hands. Mother is 15.3 and sire is over 16 hands. Amante is 1/2 Andalusian. He is a stout, strong fellow even just after birth. I have never seen knees and hocks so big and developed on a foal before. All I can say is that he is just HUGE!

He is a friendly fellow and likes all the attention that he can get. he's rather be petted and scratched than eat his dinner.  He follows me all around and sneaks up behind me when I am doing something else. When I leave he nickers helplessly. A really people oriented horse. I have started his halter training already sine he is soo big. He is nearly a pro. Doing very well. He likes to follow me around anyway so he is just getting used to having a contraption on his head. He's been trailered several times already and is easy to load and unload.

WOW, this guy can move - just like his Nat'l Champion sire Remate. He is made for dressage and would also be well suited for hunting, jumping, showing, trail horse, eventing, anything you want this guy to do. He is very bold and outgoing, has a great shoulder and long, long strides, and appears to have quite a bit of his sire's movement. (Probably too big for barrel racing etc.) He has a very long neck like his sire Remate, his mother's big hip, and a definite personality already. This guy is going to be big and smart, a fast learner, and is going to need an experienced handler to train him. Not a first-horse type as he will be Very Very big. He is quite friendly but not the dead calm type, he has a little spunky side to him and is the type of horse that wants to learn.

Amante is an excellent competition prospect for an experienced horseman. He would not make a good mount for beginner since he will be so large and is very smart.  Special considerations may be made to the right show/competition home.
