It is extremely rewarding to research, plan and calculate bloodlines and phenotypes, in order to produce a foal
    that fits a vision. Further, it is even more special to be able to work with that baby and watch it grow into a
    charming friend. We have enjoyed doing all of the training on our horses. Even the breaking. So it is extremely
    important to us to try and produce a horse that is easy enough for an amateur to work with. A good disposition
    is everything. In Arabians that pretty much means Al Khamsa. When competing alongside of the professionals
    our hearts race as we place above them.

    We have brood mares of superior and exotic bloodlines in our band. They carry Straight Egyptian, Egyptian-
    Turfa, and Crane Al Khamsa elements. All of the mares qualify as Al Khamsa or Asil. These mares breed,
    show, and pleasure ride. In addition, most of the mares stay leased out to riders in order to stay fit. So they are
    either producing another beauty or making a non-horse owner very happy. This also proves their great
    dispositions and capabilities.

    It is absolutely true that we have a passion for the rare and exotic. So we cannot overlook the power of
    Egyptian lines. However, nothing is more important than function. This is because we ride our horses
    alongside all breeds of Horse. That is why we prefer a lot of the older foundation lines. So we expect more
    out of our Arabians than many other folks. We have to. We need our mounts to be as smart, gentle
    and willing as any other. However, we never overlook form - because good form begets superior function.

    When you add this all together you get the ultimate horse! ... Yes we want to drive a nice car but it doesn't hurt
    when it can look like a Ferrari!

    If you would like more information on the Crane Arabians please call today and perhaps we can talk you into
    supporting this extremely rare group of horses with us! We have a beautiful Crane colt born in 2007 that we
    would like to share with someone or pass him on to a fellow supporter. This colt received all As on his Vet
    exam and is a very correct son of our Stallion Cale' Thee Xtreme!!
Our thoughts on why breed what we do...
Let us help you figure out:

So, was breeding just another great individual enough for
Callegari? No! We needed something more. We needed
something special. We needed to feel like we were truly doing
something amazing. So we looked for something rare.

Callegari is extremely proud to own some of the last surviving
blood which carries the genetics of the Crane Importation. As
Software Engineers we realize how important genetic diversity
is, for the continued propensity of the breed, as an athletic
sport horse. We were very fortunate to receive 2 gorgeous
fillies out of Favaras Sabrina to help spread the wealth! True
treasures. Truly amazing. Truly special.

In order for Callegari to ensure the success of our foals we have spent
numerous hours researching phenotypes and genotypes that produce typey,
but yet, tractable babies. We want to
be able to Show on the Class A circuit as well as at the Egyptian Event.
