WELCOME TO OUR NEWEST MARCHADORS!

Introducing our P babies!

Puka do Summerwind – bay tobiano filly. Reserved and headed to North Carolina eventually. Headed for Colorado for the summer months with dam Isabelle do Great Lakes, owned by Karen and Randy. Another great baby for Izzy and our first from newly imported frozen semen Atrevido do Porto Palmeira.

Paris do Summerwind – bay filly. Staying put with owner Cathy Pierce and her dam Cassandra do MManor. Another filly from imported semen from Arun de Maripa (so far only 1 boy in the mix and we love getting fillies!) Video is her first time out! So cute.

Padawan do Summerwind – bay tobiano colt. He waited until April to be born! But well worth the wait! He will stay a stud colt / stallion prospect for Elizabeth Sims in AZ (who also owns Jedi-Knight and Leia do Summerwind). He will also enjoy the summer months in Pagosa Springs with dam Brasilia do Summerwind.

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 the Owners – TERRY SPEHAR-FAHEY

Terry is the proud owner of Nandor do Summerwind, our 2019 Mangalarga Marchador stud colt.

Nandor do Summerwind

Terry is a life-long friend of Karen Ann Livesay who owns Nandor’s dam, Isabelle do Great Lakes (aka Izzy). Terry’s venture into the horse world came later in life with a new goal to become a dressage rider. She owns and rides a big bay warmblood named Roulette sired by Rubinesque. She has been riding and training for many years achieving her dream.

With Karen’s interest in the Mangalarga Marchador, Terry learned about the breed and asked about Izzy’s first foal Jedi-Knight do Summerwind. It took a few years to connect all the dots, but Nandor, the Marchador seems like the perfect fit! Nandor is sired by Arun de Maripa using imported frozen semen. Also unique about him is his color, a beautiful chocolate roan.

Terry visited Nandor in Pagosa Springs in 2019 and they hit it off wonderfully. Nandor is soft and willing, and looking to the future, he will be a great partner for Terry to use in Working Equitation, which combines dressage with working skills. The Marchador breed is very well suited to that discipline! Nandor will also become a family horse to be shared with her daughter and her future grandchildren.

The plan is for Nandor to stay with Summerwind until after he is age 3, trained under saddle, inspected by the ABCCMM and also used for breeding before he is gelded. Then he will move to Terry, probably when she moves from California to Oregon after retiring.

But, she adds horses to her other passion – being an artist. Terry Spehar-Fahey is a Senior Lecturer of Art at California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks, California. Terry’s position at Cal Lutheran culminates a number of careers as a gallery artist, mom, cost accountant, graphic and technical artist, and high school teacher.

About Terry: Terry Spehar-Fahey received her BA in Painting, Sculpture, and Graphic Arts from UCLA and her Master of Business Administration from Loyola-Marymount University. She has held various teaching and corporate positions in the arts and in business. Since 1989, Ms. Spehar-Fahey has been represented by a number of galleries in California.  Spehar-Fahey teaches drawing, watercolor, and Art and Psychology hoping to inspire her students with the joy of making art that reflects their unique self. Along with her colleague, Dr. Dru Pagliassotti, Terry has taught a travel course entitled Imagining Venice and a course on comic books. She is interested in the study of creativity, art and neuroscience and in the role that the arts can play in mental health. Her latest course work and art is derived from that interest as well as portrait painting, figure painting, webcomic illustration and a renewed interest in the light-filled landscapes of northern Italy.

BREEDING 2020!

Summerwind added one new Mangalarga Marchador to our stallion barn in 2020, bringing our offering to 13 stallions!!!!

Atrevido do Porto Palmeira

Meet Atrevido do Porto Palmeira, descended from a number of Marchadors that I have loved over the years! He is the son of Extrato do Minatto, a super ELITE stallion x Tribuna do Porto Palmeiro, herself the daughter of super ELITE stallion Favacho Diamante. His sire Extrato do Minatto is the winner of 105 titles in the show ring, most recently as a champion producer. Atrevido has a super sweet temperament, great gait and a chance for tobiano babies! Atrevido’s foals are proving his genetics and so I have included them in Atrevido’s videos.

We also offer one cooled semen option with our own Jedi-Knight do Summerwind, also with great gait, great temperament and one tobiano gene. Jedi is the only breeding tobiano Marchador stallion in North America! His first foals are hitting the ground now! For more information, contact us!

Take a look at them all! And then start dreaming about the foal you could have in 2021! All 13 stallions are highlighted on our website page Stallions.

Summerwind and SW Future Foal offers champion and ELITE book stallions from Brazil and the US who have themselves won in the show ring or the sports arena and whose offspring are now proving themselves. Genetics matter! Expect to be impressed!
