Ferro is by our prized, most loved, Marchador stallion, Cheveyo do InMotion, and is out of our best mare, Aliane Fazenda Zouga. Ferro is a stunning gelding who is marcha batida. He chooses to move in batida at liberty, but he can also do picada when asked under saddle. As a young foal, he chose to move in picada quite often.
When Ferro was born, he was one of the strongest foals we have had as well as the most intelligent. In Portuguese, Ferro means iron. But, we felt that because he was such a strong willed foal, that iron wasn't a strong enough representation. So, we added "coragem." Coragem means courage or heart in Portuguese. "Iron Heart" became his name as it is translated in English. He takes after his sire with regard to intelligence and curiosity, but he got his dam's beauty. He is a real head turner and has been started in Endurance riding. He was also chosen to participate in the Parade of Nations, in Ocala, for the Nations Cup in February 2018.
