Come visit her in Pagosa Springs until springtime; then you can meet her there in Phoenix. She is worth the trip, a beautiful filly with 3 stockings and one sock – all with spots, so we believe she carries a tobiano gene, but we will do the full genetic report soon.
Welcome to our world little one.
This is her 6 day gallery. Meet Rae do Summerwind!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Terry is the proud owner of Nandor do Summerwind, our 2019 Mangalarga Marchador stud colt.
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.
