CDC Lutador

2014 Lusitano Stallion

CDC Lutador earned his name (Portuguese for ‘fighter’) when he successfully fought back from the brink of death when a tiny tear in his umbilicus caused him to go septic at two days old. With prompt attention and great care by the staff at Oregon State University’s veterinary hospital, he made a complete recovery.

Thank goodness!

Lutador is the first-born son of Finura CR, by Xerife, a Lusitano stallion imported from Portugal.  He is proudly owned by Rochelle O’Connor of Eugene, Oregon.
