Ranchboss Cortez - April 1999 (Primavera Valdez X Telura's BlackGold), 15'2hh, is Australia's very first coloured pure Morgan. We imported him to Australia in 2005.
He is a stunning buckskin (EE Aa CrCrn); his coat shot with spun gold, with the temperament of a gelding but with the presence of a magnificent stallion. Cortez will never produce a chestnut foal.
Cortez is one of only 19.1% of Morgan stallions registered in the decade 1990-2000 to be classified as a Foundation Morgan.
For us, temperament is on the top of the list of 'must haves', and this stallion has sweetness, kindness and willingness in abundance.
Bred and raised in California USA, by Nina Bates of Bossert Ranch, Cortez was started at the age of five and given three months training as a Western Reining horse, before being leased for stud duties by Old Growth Oak Morgan stud. They particularly wanted Cortez's bloodlines as he comes from those wonderful old foundation lines and is pure western working stock.
