Foaled July 5th 1997
16.1 hh Revised PRE mare
Mareo (Estimado V)
X Olympia (Temerario V)
We went to Olympic Andalusians on
Vancouver Island to look at another mare they had for sale. Malaika was a two year old when we saw her standing in
the field. Even from a distance she had that "Andalusian" look. Sandra Younge, the owner of Olympic Andalusians aptly described
her as "weedy" but you could still see the glow of greatness in her. We asked Sandra to bring her out for a closer look. Watching
Malaika when she turned to trot....no .."float" is a better word...made our jaws drop. We left Sandra's without the horse
we had come to buy, but with a contract for Malaika instead. She has matured into a outstanding Andalusian mare. She is revised
by the Cria Caballar, and was one of the highest scoring horses for her revision year. . Her 2005 pure Spanish Andalusian
colt by Fogoso H turned out to be all we had hoped for, with light forward movement , perfect conformation and an aura of
greatness that was apparent from his first day. When something works so well it is easy to decide to do it again; Malaika
was bred back to Fogoso and again produced an exceptional colt with amazing movement.
In 2007 Malaika will be bred to the
outside stalllion Mestino R, from DeJong Farms Mestino is a chestnut PSP stallion and a multiple gold medal movement winner.
It is our hope to not only produce a foal with incredible movement and conformation, but also to pass on Mestino's beautiful
fiery chestnut coloring.
