1/10/2015 grey stallion by Armas Diestro and out of Armas Estepena. Born in Spain and purchased from Yeguada Trujillo. Stands 15.3 hands and hopefully will be a perfect match for some of my extra-tall mares. Still very dark at coming 5 years of age, betting will throw color. Please see videos of Lejio's dramatic sire and of his incredible grandsire, Spanish National Champion and beautiful moving Judio VII. Ancee revised.
One of my friends/customers pointed out that Lejio is a combination of what I loved about both Wanapum (movement/power) and Gitano (temperament, looks). Maybe that is one of the reasons I was drawn to him!
Valente is beginning Lejio's under saddle work so will wait to see if we feel he is ready to breed in Spring, 2020. Certainly no rush, but anxious to see if Lejio will throw his sweet temperament and powerful movement.
