Andalusian horses' bloodlines are recorded in one of Europe's oldest royal studbooks. Raised in small groups by royalty and wealthy merchants, the breed was devastated between the two wars.

Horses to Color
Stacey's beautiful drawings of horses are brought together to print and color at home. Beginning with Arabian horses, Stacey's drawings share breeds of American favorites like Appaloosas, AQHA, Morgans, American Saddlebreds, Miniatures, Paints, or Pintos, and Tennessee Walkers. She also includes the finest European horses, such as Andalusians, Friesians, Gypsy horses, and Warmbloods.
