About the Brand
The symbolism is simple. In keeping with both Spanish and North American tradition, I had to come up with a branding iron for my horses. The one I chose is a design as ancient as the horses I am privileged to own and raise, and reflects the fact that my job is larger and older than I will ever be. I am a steward of the breed, not a creator. I would be uncomfortable putting my initials on these animals which I view as living works of ancient art; relics to be preserved. While it is important that they be branded, leaving my initials out of the equation was important to me. The brand is a triskelion -the oldest of which dates back to neolithic times, and can be found at the entrance of the Newgrange Monument, in Ireland.
