ABCCMM Inspection August 11, 2015

Dr. Kate Moura da Costa Barcelos is coming from Brazil!   She will be in Canada for an Equine Convention and ABCCMM Inspection.   It’s the first ever held in Canada!   Very historic.     During her stay in the west, she will fly to inspect 2 of our Marchador horses in Colorado.

Photo shoot from April, reminding us how much she is growing!

Jewel do Summerwind will get a foal inspection.   During this inspection, the foal is microchipped, whorls and markings are noted and the foal will be provisionally registered in Brazil if there are no disqualifying or heritable defects.

Isabelle do Great Lakes will be inspected under saddle and in hand for conformation, temperament and gait.   If she gets enough points in each category, she will be permanently registered in Brazil and her foal expected in October, then will also be eligible to be double registered in Brazil.

Summerwind is committed to the quality and diversity of the Marchador breed here and we think the Brazilian inspection process is a great tradition to uphold.

Jewel do Summerwind, the Movie

Born at 3 p.m. on March 27th!   What a treasure!   A full sister to Gaia do Summerwind, we have another outstanding filly from Oma de Maripa (using imported frozen semen) and Brasilia do Summerwind.

Oma de Maripa has foals here in the US and we have more frozen semen to create again.

Brasilia looks stunning and elegant again, just hours after she looked hot and slow carrying this big foal around!

Summerwind_Marchador_horse_10Jewel is a very TALL foal and her IGG results were off the charts (healthy).  We just know she will be great!

The Marchador is the ultimate Brazilian Saddle Horse.  With fewer than 300 horses here in North America, every foal is precious and welcomed.   We are fortunate to have frozen semen from several stallions from Agro Maripa in Brazil.   With their emphasis on genetics, their Marchadors are truly gaited sport horses with beauty and temperament guaranteed!
