CONTEST!! Guess the birthdays!

3 chances to win! Contest runs from today to March 17th! Get your guesses in!

Contest is being held on SW Future Foal – Mangalarga Marchador FB page, or send us an email at futurefoal@gmail.com. Only one guess allowed per person per foal. Winners announced as the foals are born.

3 chances to win with 3 foals expected in March, 2021! We are excited and thrilled! Help us with the naming too! We are on the letter P – P** do Summerwind!

First up – guess a date from last week of February to mid-March for the expected foal of Atrevido do Porto Palmeira (frozen semen) and Isabelle do Great Lakes. Izzy is a blue roan mare and the sire is a black bay tobiano.

Isabelle do Great Lakes aka IZZY! She is a blue roan Marchador mare. She’s had spectacular foals so far – Jedi-Knight , a MM stallion, Luna, MM mare and Nandor, a MM stud colt. We are expecting greatness again. As always hoping for a good healthy baby, no matter what the gender or color.

Next up is Cassandra do MManor. Choose a date from Mid March to the first week of April. Cassie is a bay Marchador mare bred to a black bay Marchador stallion (frozen semen). Arun de Maripa is the sire of this foal.

Cassandra do MManor is bred to Arun de Maripa. Cassie has had 2 other wonderful foals – Eduardo and Nobre do Summerwind, both MM geldings.

The third chance to win is with Brasilia do Summerwind, a black bay Marchador mare. Brasilia is also bred to Atrevido do Porto Palmeira using frozen semen. Guess the same as Cassie – from Mid-March to early April.

Recent photo of Brasilia do Summerwind. Brasilia has had 3 Marchador foals with us. Fidalgo do Summerwind, a MM gelding; Gaia and Jewel do Summerwind. We are thrilled that she is pregnant after failing to conceive in the last 2 years. Her babies are worth waiting for.

Meet Astrud de Lazy T

ASTRUD HAS BEEN SOLD! Great new owner Susan Salazar who will write her journey back into horses soon.

Astrud is a 13 year old grey mare with a wonderful marcha and personality that likes to please – just like a Marchador! She is the daughter of Tabatinga Monitor x Pupila de Itajoana, bred by my good friend Tresa Smith in Montana. Affectionately nicknamed Strudle, she will make a great riding horse, but we’d prefer to see her produce a few foals too. We will be breeding her in late fall to early spring if she is not sold. Astrud and/or a foal from Astrud is offered for sale to the perfect owner.

Call us now if you are that perfect person for Astrud or her foal. If you want to come meet her – the best pricing is in September and October!

Even though we have known her since she was a foal herself, she just arrived in Arizona so we are getting to ride her for the first time and taking it slowly. But everything we have seen, we like! We are in a partnership with her owner to offer her for sale. She has had one foal, Gabriel do Dreamcatcher, so she has been busy for the last year or so.

The videos are Elizabeth Sims, Silver Stables, and the first ride after she arrived in AZ.

Meet the new SW “O” Foals!
