Our surprise September 6 package, a few weeks early, was Astrud’s filly! Mom and baby doing fine! Named Paloma do Summerwind, our barbie doll girl is sired by Violeiro do Riomar, a National Champion Marchador in Brazil.
Photos below of Astrud and Paloma by Jennifer Jeung taken the night of her arrival – just hours old.
Astrud and Paloma are owned by Karen Livesay, SW Future Foal of Sedona. Click here to see the pedigree.
It will be Destiny’s second foal and Violeiro’s first in North America! Violeiro is a 3 time National Champion in Brazil, now producing national champions at Haras AP, Bahia. The conformation, gait and temperament should be awesome. The color options for the future foal are: bay, buckskin, palomino and chestnut.
Thanks to all who helped along the way – many years – to make this semen importation possible, and there were many!
Other Future Foals expected so far:
Late 2019 – Jedi-Knight do Summerwind x Azenha de Maripa – may be offered for sale, but reserved for now if it’s a tobiano filly.
Early 2020 – Jedi-Knight do Summerwind x Grahla M.U.G – reserved
Mid 2020 – Violeiro do Riomar x Destiny do Summerwind

Brazilian breeders from Haras Avena and Haras do AP arrived in Arizona to celebrate the arrival of frozen semen from 2 of their stallions. We met the semen and Brazilian vet Caroline Lisboa at the airport and the weekend activities began! Hosting several dinners and also a barn tour of 4 Mangalarga Marchador barns, we all had a great time.
We will be adding these 2 stallions – Violeiro do Riomar and Carnaval Sao Lourenco – the first importation from Bahia state to the website in February. Watch for their announcements. Truly, they will add to the MM genetics here in North America.
Our thanks to Carlos Avena, Juliane Avena, Paulo Novoa, Ana Paula Novoa, Laura Patterson Rosa and Caroline Lisboa, who never gave up in this multi-year, international effort. Thanks to all the SW Future Foal breeders and owners who always give their support!
