The breeding of horses is science, logical selection and most of all a knack and a little luck. Every year we sit down and work with the pedigrees of the horses. We factor inbreeding coefficients, color testing results, parentage confirmations as well as old fashioned gut feeling. The hardest thing when building this herd for me was not to focus too much on my personal favorite lines and to keep working on brooding our genetic base while still maintaining type.
As herds have dwindled and breeders have left the business, there are less and less quality specimens. We are currently looking for an outcross stallion quality colt. That is easier said than done.
At any rate we would love to share the herd project with you and yours. So stop in and see us sometime.
We began this herd with 6 horses and a dream that we could make a difference. We have an average of 32 horses now in any given year. We after almost a decade are finally beginning to see the fruits of our labors. The Windcross herd is in our estimation one of the best examples of the foundation Spanish Mustang anywhere in the world. We don't breed for manes and tails, we breed for conformation and type.
