Luna do Summerwind Arrives! Nov 2, 2017

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.

Welcome to the World – Leia do Summerwind!

Born April 1st, 2017, the much awaited and anticipated foal of Arun de Maripa x Azenha de Maripa, arrived.   And it’s a GIRL!  LEIA!   We are overjoyed!

A beautiful and correct filly, she is a pure Maripa, a bloodline is a mix of Abaiba, Bela Cruz and Herdade.   In the sire,  Arun de Maripa is also added Favacho and Tabatinga blood from his ELITE sire Favacho Diamante.  It is a wonderful blend!

Named Leia do Summerwind by the Future Foal breeders, Elizabeth and DJ Sims of Silver Stables Marchadors in Phoenix AZ.    They also own Jedi-Knight do Summerwind and now Leia, along with Gralha M.U.G.,  provide them the foundation for their breeding program and she stays part of the FUTURE FOAL network.

Arun de Maripa (imported frozen semen)  has sired one other filly in CA named Gemini do Dreamcatcher.

Azenha de Maripa has produced 4 offspring – in Canada, Beethoven do Summerwind (x La Paz Jivago), in AZ, Hawke do Summewind ( x Ximoio de Maripa),  in UT, Hemingway do Summerwind  (x La Paz Jivago) and now in AZ,  Leia do Summerwind (x Arun de Maripa.
