(Zlotoglow x Oriana)
With no Huckleberry Bey or Bask in his pedigree, *Ortel is an ideal outcross for the Heartwood Huckleberry Bey- & Bask-bred mares, providing additional strengthen and depth to the Heartwood breeding program.
*Ortel is a big, strong, beautiful horse with a short back, high set neck, and powerful hip. He is gentle and delightful to be around. His pedigree is packed with consistently beautiful and athletic Polish horses - winners and champions on the racetrack and in the show ring.
With his first foals on the ground the spring of 2000, it is already apparent that *Ortel is passing on his athletic ability and beauty to his foals. He has been bred to a variety of mares and has been very consistent in producing beautiful heads and necks; compact, powerful bodies; and strong, straight legs. The foals also show the same big, hocky motion of their sire, and they have very distinct and charming personalities.
