Over the Pyrenees from Madrid

Danilon's sire Official XXIX

Danilon is one of only three stallion standing in the United Kindom by the magnificent, advanced dressage stallion Official with Albero II, Yeguada Militar (Military) and Terry bloodlines.

He arrived at the end of our narrow lane in a shiny, luxurious, black horsebox (Luck's transport) tired but with glowing reports of his behaviour on his three day trek across Spain, the Pyrenees and down through France with a good Chanel crossing to Portsmouth with rest stops in different stables each night before setting his hooves on Cornish soil. Unfazed he quietly and obediently followed Charles up our lane to finish his journey to Ednovean Farm and within minutes was blissfully rolling in a cloud of fresh shavings in his new stable that we had painstakingly freshly painted in honour of his arrival. Bath time complete he settled to his haynet and we crept away once he had staled to give him some peace but we must admit we soon crept back again to gaze at our new Spanish Stallion from Madrid.
