Celtica DD (Keberes
D x Heroe
MAC) DOB: 4-25-02
REVISED (ANCCE) PRE mare 16.1h
Celtica is our first PRE foundation
mare. She's a striking beauty with an
iridescent coat that just shimmers. At 5
yrs old she finally lost the last of her dapples
and then took on this iridescent glowing coat.
Celtica looks like she just stepped of the
plane from Spain or the sort of mare you
expect to find at SICAB. At
the shows everyone wants to know what farm in
Spain she came from because they know I import
horses. Celtica's father was imported from
Spain from Yeguada Cardenas.
Celtica has already proved her value as a top
quality broodmare. Her 2006 filly
Donosa TFA won the best movement medal in her
class at Fiesta Texas. The colt
Etico TFA from this year looks as though he
will mature around 16.3-17h with the biggest
over-stride I have ever seen in a horse.
He's already over 14h at 6 months old and almost
as tall as his big sister from last year.
Celtica has natural collection, extension,
and a lot of drive from behind and a free moving
shoulder which she passes on to her foals.
She has produced two outstanding foals for us to
date - and. She was 15 H at 12
months, 15.3 at 24 months and is now 16.1h.
We thought she had stopped growing around 2 1/2
yrs old but then between 4 & 5 yrs she grew an
inch and a half.
We selected Celtica for her bloodlines (which
originate on the Cardenas stud farm in Spain),
her size, and her beauty. She has a strong
blend of Leviton and Vasallo II genes that are
very successful in the dressage arena.
These 2 lines are the most successful stallion
lines in the Pure Spanish history and have
produced the more champions than any other Pure
Spanish stallions ever. We look forward to
Celtica's future foals that are sure to be
5/28/09 Celtica had such a beautiful
filly this year - Gabriana. Almost a twin
of Fascianda that was born last year. They
are full sisters so now we have our cobra!
At last!! After 7 years of waiting since
we bought Celtica at 5 months old - we have
always looked forward to the day that we could
show her with 2 of her daughters in a cobra.
Her filly this year is exceptionally large!
I can't wait for Fascinada and Gabriana to grow
up. I am sure they will both be as
tall as their mother. We are very pleased
with the quality of her foals and the
4-20-07 We are very pleased with
Celtica as a broodmare. She is a very
typey mare of huge stature. All of her foals
have been exceptionally kind and sweet tempered
- and with excellent movement. We decided
to keep both of them. Etico looks to be
breeding stallion quality which is a rare thing
indeed. Most people assume
that she is one of my imported horses. She
is definitely one of a kind and we are pleased
that to have this exceptional mare. At
shows we always get offers to buy her - but she
would be much too difficult to replace so we are
Her pedigree includes: 2 crosses to
2 crosses to Bilbaino III, 2 crosses to
2 crosses to
2 crosses to Estepeno 1944.
