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.
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.
