Here are the ones I have so far – maybe more to come!
Luna is here! Her dam is Isabelle do Great Lakes, a beautiful blue roan Marchador mare. Also known as Izzy, she is owned by Karen Livesay and Randy Conilogue, breeding with us as Future Foal @ Sedona.
Her sire is Talisma Kafe, a black and white tobiano stallion, using imported frozen semen. The semen is from Haras Elfar, a prominent Marchador breeding farm in Brazil. Luna is the full sibling to Jedi-Knight do Summerwind, now 2 years old.
Everything we hoped for, and more! She has been reserved by Christine and Craig McNeil.
Congratulations to Christine and Craig! We are so impressed with your baby!
Christine writes ” I have a life-long love of horses and have ridden over the years as often and as much as possible. I have known for a very long time the incredible benefits of being around horses and the bond that can be had between horse and human. I also have a special interest in equine assisted therapy both for physical and psychological challenges. Now that my husband, Craig, and I are nearing retirement, I am able to realize my dream of owning horses. I focused my search on gaited horses and came across the Marchador breed and SummerWind Marchadors. We are purchasing our 2 horses through Future Foal and are very excited for the day we can bring them home to northern Wisconsin where we will be retiring.”
We can’t wait for you to come and see your new baby! She is stunning! And friendly! Below are some photos of Luna and her almost daily visitors since being born.
Interested in Owning or Investing in a Marchador? L** foal do Summerwind is available for full or partial reservation now! Often, our foals are sold before they are born. If you are thinking about this Future Foal, let us know!
For Full Ownership, reserve for $9,000 – payment plans available. For investment or partial ownership, contact us for options that might work for you.
Thinking ahead! To be born in AZ in November 2017, (Marchadors use real birthdays, not January 1!), this foal will be ready to go around May 2018.
A full sibling to Jedi-Knight do Summerwind, pictured here, this foal has a 25% chance of black or black tobiano (like his sire) or blue roan tobiano or blue roan (like his dam). We expect this foal to mature at 15 hands and have a smooth gait.
Isabelle – IZZY! is a 14.2H blue roan mare, the daughter of 2 imported Marchador horses. She is so beautiful with an exquisite head and look about her. So much fun to ride! – A Marcha batida gait that is both fast and smooth. Lots of confidence that she passed on to her first foal Jedi-Knight. We are expecting the same results in this baby.

Talisma Kafe is the sire using imported frozen semen from Brazil. Talisma has had 4 foals here in North America and all of them have been spectacular! We are expecting the same here; it’s in his genes. Talisma is the son of JB stallion Palhaco de Ituvavera, who produced so many Brazilian champions – Elo Kafe de Nova, Tiguaro Kafe are 2 of the top ones. His name in the pedigree is gold.
Talisma is a stunning black and white tobiano stallion. Sweet and gentle, he has a marcha picada or center gait. His offspring is winning in the show ring in mostly marcha picada classes. For more information and photos on Talisma, follow this link: Talisma Kafe
Colorado Marchador Photos! We had a great time riding in the mountains in Pagosa Springs, CO. Our new neighbors Karen Livesay and Randy Conilogue joined us often and were great fun. We had lots of friends riding with us! Thank you for coming!
We had a big crowd welcoming Jedi-Knight into the world on Sunday night! At least 10 people hanging over the stall!
Maiden mare Isabelle do Great Lakes was superb! What a good mother she is! Nicknamed Izzy, she is owned by Karen Ann Livesay, Future Foal @ Sedona. And the surprise package is a pinto colt! He is reserved by Elizabeth and D.J. Sims also in AZ, who will become Marchador breeders! The whole atmosphere was charged with excitement and awe.
Jedi’s sire is Brazilian Marchador stallion Talisma Kafe, a black and white pinto, using imported frozen semen.
Here are some photos of Jedi’s first night. Watch for new posts! He is a cutie!
