OBI!

Meet Obi do Summerwind! Our newest baby horse, he is a black colt, born March 22, 2020.

Obi is the son of Jedi-Knight do Summerwind x Gralha M.U.G. 2019 was Jedi-Knight’s first year breeding and both foals born to-date seem to have his laid-back and confident personality and his excellent gait.

We are looking forward to watching Obi – love the MM babies!

Welcome Future Foal @ Silver Stables!

Photo Shoot Sunday with Jess Lee! Gralha MUG with Elizabeth Sims!

Our newest “Future Foal do Summerwind” breeders are Elizabeth and D.J. Sims of Phoenix AZ.  They own and operate Silver Stables which focuses on training and lessons for children.   Their program teaches students how to be all-around horsA photo of an woman riding english on her horse.emen in a fun, friendly, safe and affordable environment.   And now they are Marchador breeders as well!

Elizabeth and D.J. met the Marchador breed during an equine class assignment at Scottsdale Community College.  It took very little time after that visit for them to jump into the action as they reserved Isabelle do Great Lakes Future Foal about a month later.   That foal became the now-famous tobiano stud colt Jedi-Knight do Summerwind, born October 2015.

D.J. co-owns Gralha M.U.G., exquisite imported Marchador mare (shown above in the photos).   In 2015, we bred Gralha with Hawke do Summerwind and they will own the resulting October 2016 foal.  So they are growing fast!

Elizabeth and D.J. plan to keep Jedi-Knight do Summerwind a stallion and so, he will be standing at stud starting in 2019.   Right now he is the only tobiano Marchador stallion in the U.S.!  And the grandson of Palhaco de Itatuvera, one of the most influential stallions in the Marchador breed today in Brazil.

At Silver Stables is also another Marchador gelding being used in their lesson program – our wonderful and sweet Seamus da Boa Fe.   We miss him every day, but think this is a good life for him with all of the kids and attention.   I truly believe that he loves being painted at summer camp!

Sliver Stables is open as another place to “MEET A MARCHADOR” here in AZ.    Please visit Silver Stables on-line or on FB for more information about their facility and offerings!
