Don Cesar #126177

Chestnut Stallion, Foaled May 30, 1975
Don Cesar (affectionately known as "Cinders) came to us from Vancouver Island, British Columbia, where he had been the favorite saddle horse of his late owner, Dennis Murphy. Cinders is one of the last horses available anywhere of straight Skyline breeding, as well as one of only a handful of tail male descendants of the outstanding Abu Farwa son Antezeyn Skowronek. He is a calm, unflappable, dignified gentleman, and we sometimes refer to him as our "wise old owl." He still shows his athletic ability, even at his advanced age. He is a very correct horse, with extremely good bone (both in quantity and quality), short cannons, strength, and balance. In his short time with us, he has already proved himself to be a very useful sire, with young daughters in our herd, and a replacement son as well as another outstanding young daughter at Rick Synowski Arabians in Culver, Oregon.
In September of 2003, at the age of 28, we took Don Cesar to the Idaho All-Arabian Country Classic horse show in Caldwell, Idaho. Despite not having been ridden for years, he went happily back under saddle into two classes, placing 2nd in the Jack Benny English Pleasure Class and 3rd in the Sport Horse Under Saddle class. He then proceeded to take 1st in the Purebred Stallion ATH class, 1st in the Purebred Monarch class (age 15 and over), and 1st in the Purebred Stallion Sport Horse In Hand class!
The top three photos below were taken at the NW CMK Symposium in McMinnville, Oregon, when he was 26; in the lower photo, he sports his ribbons at the IAACC at age 28.
