Before leaving for the MM clinic and Colorado, we said goodbyes to more Marchadors that we love. North Carolina more than doubled its MM population from 2 to 5 with this one move. (Both of the new owners already owned one Marchador mare.) We have known since before birth, that these SW Future Foals would be going, but that doesn’t make it easier to see them off.
We made these videos to send them off to the new homes. (We sent a whole care package out with our foals and the video is just part of the information and “stuff” that come with each SW Future Foal.) We had some trepidation because of the long trip, but also knowing that Ned Leigh would take great care. We waited for the reports to come in from the new owners. And they were THRILLED — just as we expected. We are thrilled for them!
“We rode Bella (Elba Cruzalta) and Bacara do Summerwind for a short ride last Wednesday. Bella was a bit concerned leaving Tigre but handled beautifully. She is so smooth and well behaved. I absolutely love that horse.” Tigre is well accepted by all the mares and is quite the celebrity here.” Jeff Bosley, SW Future Foal @ Lumber Bridge, NC
“Fidalgo is doing so well. I can tell what a great training base you gave him. He moves away from pressure beautifully, and is generally very responsive. Fidalgo now comes when he sees me, even though he is out with Aries (8month saddlebred colt) and the other day I had just left the pasture after dropping some hay, and was leaning on the gate watching the horses. Fidalgo left the hay, and Aries, and came over to the gate to say hello.” Lynn Boone, Jacksonville, NC
