While Amber’s mother Stella is more wary of humans, Amber has inherited her father Amante’s confident and social personality. Amante is the sanctuary’s only Cerbat stallion, who was captured by the BLM from the Cerbat Mountain range outside of Kingman, Arizona. When Amante came to RTF in 2003, a decision had to be made about what mares to pair him with. Cerbat horses are rare to find, since there are less than 70 remaining in the wild. Amante was paired with mares from the Sulphur Springs herd at the suggestion of equine geneticist Dr. Gus Cothran.
