Nandor, the Marchador, was born on April 24, 2019, to MM owners and SW breeders Karen Ann Livesay and Randy Conilogue. He is the son of Arun de Maripa x Isabelle do Great Lakes.
Nandor do Summerwind is the second N foal born this year. One more is expected in June in Texas.
He is a delightful foal, easygoing and friendly as you can see from the photos.
Our thanks to Agro Maripa for sharing their high quality, proven stallions with us using imported frozen semen.
Born March 26, 2019 to Gaia do Summerwind, a black filly (probably will be grey).
The sire is Fole de Maripa, using imported frozen semen from Agro Maripa, Brazil. Gaia is the first Marchador foal born in the US using imported frozen semen. Gaia’s sire was Oma de Maripa, also from Agro Maripa. This foal marks the fourth generation for Summerwind Marchadors following the mare’s line: Brisa Libertas (imported), Brasilia do Summerwind, Gaia do Summerwind and now her new filly!
Congratulations to Adrienne C. Scheck, owner of Gaia do Summerwind and to Nel Syed and Mark, owners of the new foal. This foal will be going to ENGLAND! where we think it will be the first Marchador in that country.
The added bonus is that the filly was born on Adrienne’s birthday – what a gift!
