FONTES STUD FARM
The Stud Farm is situated on the right bank of the River Tagus on the alluvian plain of
Quinta das Arribas and the Tapada dos Choupos, properties that belonged
to the owner's great grandfather, Jo„o Antunes Franco, a farmer and
great enthusiast for bullfighting who gave Abrantes its 3,500 seat arena.
The Stud Farm was set up in 1981 but
really expanded in the following years with the purchase of superb
Lusitano breeding mares which are from de pedigree stock of, Duarte Oliveira and Couto
Fornilhos and predominantly mares from the Andrade pedigree.
In order to continue this line we have at our disposal more than 50
mares; all of them daughters of the Andrade's
pedigree stallions ZEUS, G‘-G‘, JUNCO-CHINES, JABEQUE and LAVERCO.
