My Favourite Picture of Tanto
TANTO MEJOR was a dark bay stallion with a sweet disposition,lot's of brio,supersmooth gait
and he was crossbred often to TWH's with the result of nice Tennuvian foals before i bought him.
He and i became best friends fast,i remember vividly my first Peruvian ride he gave me,it was most
awesome and he listened well to me even though he did not know me at all.He was to be my
herdsire,he wasn't linebred and carried northern bloodlines through his dam which i consider a
healthy pedigree for a Peruvian.It was a hard time to see him come down with kidneyfailure in spring
2005.My proud Tanto lost weight and faded away before my eyes and noone could help him,so
finally my brave little stallion lost his battle and i had to make the dreaded decision to let him go.He
fought hard but couldn't win.He died in the midst of his little family,even his little son was at his
side,we all said goodbye to him and i know he is in a better place now running free in green pastures.
Tanto still looking great Winter 04/05
I am glad to have my little Bento,he is so much
like his daddy and i look forward to Tanto's last
2 foals,i know they will be gorgious like
him.Thanks Tanto for this unique gift and the
wonderful times we had,even if it was not long.I
know i will see you again someday over the
rainbow bridge.In my heart and through his foals
he will live on and i am glad to have been his last
owner even if it was so very hard to let him
go.But he did have a great life and was loved
dearly all his life.Watch for pictures of his new
foals Tanto's future.
Beautiful Tanto loved to run and play,i loved
watching him,what a gorgeous site to see.
