Summer Camp in PAGOSA SPRINGS!

Summerwind Marchadors and Silver Stables teamed up to offer a July 4th weekend camp to young riding students of Silver Stables. What fun!   We were happy we did this!

The girls had fun with many activities around town over the fourth – like the fireworks, the parade and the rodeo.   During the day, they rode Marchador horses!   We offered them many horses and matched horses to riders during the first day.   In the program were seven Marchador horses:  Artemis do Summerwind, Brasilia do Summerwind, Caboclo da Piedade, Caesar do Summerwind, Fidalgo do Summerwind, Jorge-Ben de Lazy T and Koyote Libertas.   

Great riders! Great horses! They did arena work, outside course work, and trail riding, including the grand finale, a bareback trail ride.   Great guests too – all staying in our barn apartment, like a giant sleepover.    

We think we will offer this again!   Our horses were never so well-groomed, lol.

We are expecting – Greatness!

We were delighted to hear from SW breeder Cathy Pierce that Destiny do Summerwind is confirmed pregnant to Violeiro do Riomar (via imported frozen semen).

It will be Destiny’s second foal and Violeiro’s first in North America! Violeiro is a 3 time National Champion in Brazil, now producing national champions at Haras AP, Bahia. The conformation, gait and temperament should be awesome. The color options for the future foal are: bay, buckskin, palomino and chestnut.

Thanks to all who helped along the way – many years – to make this semen importation possible, and there were many!

Other Future Foals expected so far:

  • Late 2019 – Jedi-Knight do Summerwind x Azenha de Maripa – may be offered for sale, but reserved for now if it’s a tobiano filly.
  • Early 2020 – Jedi-Knight do Summerwind x Grahla M.U.G – reserved
  • Mid 2020 – Violeiro do Riomar x Destiny do Summerwind

Nobre do Summerwind is born!

Third N Summerwind foal and he is a charm! Born Friday, June 14, 2019! Named Nobre do Summerwind which means noble, he looks like he will grow into his name. He is the son of La Paz Jivago x Cassandra do MManor, born to SW breeder Cathy Pierce in Corpus Christi, TX.

Congratulations to Cathy, and to new owners Elizabeth Sims of Silver Stables and Randy Gassett, both from AZ.

Imported sire La Paz Jivago, has sired foals in Brazil, the US and Canada. He is the son of ELITE 8 stallion Ideal Tabatinga x ELITE 7 mare Favacho Bulgaria (daughter of Tabatinga Senegal x Favacho Sina). Dam Cassandra do MManor is the daughter of 2 imported Marchadors known for producing beautiful foals with great temperament and gait – Frevo da Camaq x Ibiza da Boa Fe.

Already we love this little one. Color may display as grulla, as he is homozygous black with homozygous nd/1 – primitive markings. Summerwind does complete DNA panels on all their foals.

Other N babies so far – Nola do Summerwind (Fole de Maripa x Gaia do Summerwind ; Nandor do Summerwind (Arun de Maripa x Isabelle do Great Lakes.
