Wilga Park Genciana
Genciana is a typical Cortez x Paprika baby. She is as brave as they come and believes people were put on this earth to please her.
Genci loves attention and, even at the early age of 5 weeks would let the herd and her Mum wander off without her, just so that she could stay for that extra scratch.
She is so very trainable. She understands instantly what is required. That, we believe, is because of her very low 'flight' instinct, which means she is not afraid or nervous about new things. She has a very sensible mind.
Genci certainly looks like she will mature over 15hh - rather like her older siblings. She also may turn into a brown horse when all that foal fluff is shed. She is quite black under that bay covering. She is bay with black/brown patches as she rubs that foal coat out on hot days.
Genci is the ninth foal from Cortez x Red Bluff Paprika (Red Bluff Paprika - see her story). Another superb riding horse with that perfect no fuss nature. Genci does have an opinion, simply because she is a brave, bold girl. Talk to the owners of her older siblings who are similar and they will vouch for the reliability and trainabilty of this wonderful cross.
Description of Genciana...
The Genciana is very versatile. It is fully hardy and can grow in full sun or partial shade.
The root of the Gencian plant is used in tonics, liquers and herbal teas, and for many medicinal purposes.
Many species of the Gencian plant can bear flowers of differing colours.
We believe our Genciana will be just as versatile in her own way when she matures.
