Ramirez was bred at Shepherd Hill Farm in Victoria. He came to Narrawin in 2002, and has been used as sire, producing a number of outstanding foals over the years. He has also spent time at OliVaylle and with Elizabeth Lawrence as herd sire. He had a basic education under saddle and is currently receiving some further education in classical dressage.
Ramirez is not gaited. He has expressive, groundcovering walk, trot and canter and the natural elevation and fluid movement that Andalusians are famous for.
He is solid and correctly put together. While not having the most refinded head, he has a fantastic front end and an overall very harmonious conformation. For more current pictures, please see his Narrawin Stud Facebook album
He is a pleasant, easy to work with horse, whether under saddle, on the ground or in the breeding shed. He is laid back, but with brio. Happy to see people and a great attitude to work.
Ramirez is heterozygous for grey and has produced black foals.
His offspring have his temperament, good bone and some size. He has been a great addition to my Paso Creole breeding program. Some of his progeny include: Armando NS - Paso Creole gelding out of VR Reina Real (Imp.CAN) Leon NS - Partbred Andalusian gelding out of AuSome Gitana Aliyana NS - Partbred Andalusian filly out of AuSome Candileja
Ramirez stands at stud to approved mares of all breeds until sold.
As I wish to downscale, Ramirez is regretfully offered for sale. He is available from Spring 2017, as I have one mare to cover before he leaves.
