This is ‘Beethoven’ a Soraya stallion.
His lovely greyish/dun colour is most attractive and also looks brilliant in black and white.
He has naughtily grabbed a mouthful of a tasty weed growing at the other side of the bullring before galloping straight towards me.
He was photographed in Portugal in a bullring, with a yellow wall, at the establishment where his stable is located.
Sorayas are now very few in number, apparently only 200 still remain and he has the vital job to keep the breed going.
