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.
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.
