El Caballo Español - La evolución de su morfología
by Juan Carlos Altamirano
In this book, Juan Carlos Altamirano focuses on the process of creation of the morphology of the Spanish purebred. He explains the morphological changes of the breed since its creation and the causes of this evolution. He presents documented evidence which clearly indicates that the Spanish horse is not the result of natural evolution but rather the product of the greatest genetic project of history, the one undertaken in 1567 at the orders of King Philip II in the city of Cordoba for the purpose of creating a breed of horses which would have specific pre-established characteristics.
