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

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

(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
Will be a minimum of 16 hands - probably a strong 16.2h
Great movement - flashy, straight, long strides
Long over strides
and loads well
Good about his feet being handled
Was very easy to halter train -put the halter on and he followed right

called us back to the arena and announced they had made a mistake and took
our National Reserve Champion ribbon away. Our scores placed us 3rd so
we got a top 5 ribbon instead.)
