Brazilian breeders from Haras Avena and Haras do AP arrived in Arizona to celebrate the arrival of frozen semen from 2 of their stallions. We met the semen and Brazilian vet Caroline Lisboa at the airport and the weekend activities began! Hosting several dinners and also a barn tour of 4 Mangalarga Marchador barns, we all had a great time.
We will be adding these 2 stallions – Violeiro do Riomar and Carnaval Sao Lourenco – the first importation from Bahia state to the website in February. Watch for their announcements. Truly, they will add to the MM genetics here in North America.
Our thanks to Carlos Avena, Juliane Avena, Paulo Novoa, Ana Paula Novoa, Laura Patterson Rosa and Caroline Lisboa, who never gave up in this multi-year, international effort. Thanks to all the SW Future Foal breeders and owners who always give their support!
Luna is here! Her dam is Isabelle do Great Lakes, a beautiful blue roan Marchador mare. Also known as Izzy, she is owned by Karen Livesay and Randy Conilogue, breeding with us as Future Foal @ Sedona.
Her sire is Talisma Kafe, a black and white tobiano stallion, using imported frozen semen. The semen is from Haras Elfar, a prominent Marchador breeding farm in Brazil. Luna is the full sibling to Jedi-Knight do Summerwind, now 2 years old.
Everything we hoped for, and more! She has been reserved by Christine and Craig McNeil.
Congratulations to Christine and Craig! We are so impressed with your baby!
Christine writes ” I have a life-long love of horses and have ridden over the years as often and as much as possible. I have known for a very long time the incredible benefits of being around horses and the bond that can be had between horse and human. I also have a special interest in equine assisted therapy both for physical and psychological challenges. Now that my husband, Craig, and I are nearing retirement, I am able to realize my dream of owning horses. I focused my search on gaited horses and came across the Marchador breed and SummerWind Marchadors. We are purchasing our 2 horses through Future Foal and are very excited for the day we can bring them home to northern Wisconsin where we will be retiring.”
We can’t wait for you to come and see your new baby! She is stunning! And friendly! Below are some photos of Luna and her almost daily visitors since being born.
We have plans to go to the National Show in July and to visit some Marchador horse breeding farms while we are there. We go to learn more about the breed, the training, the genetics and the philosophies from the breeders and trainers there. But, our goal is always to find and import new genetics to the U.S. for our continued improvement and diversity here. Most often, this is by importing frozen semen.
So, even before we go, we can start the photo album of some of the Marchador horses and farms that we expect to see.
