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.

Our update from Laurie Klassen in SK, Canada:

"A successful season has come to a close for this Saskatchewan Cowboy Dressage rider. The cold and snow has crept in and the horses will have a winter layoff now.

The season was fun and I feel I accomplished some good goals. Both of my Marchadors ended up competing after my mare Joia had to be laid off to an illness.

Joia has beautiful rhythm and this season received a bronze award and pin for her accomplishments.  Beethoven went from the trail to the rail to the show arena in a blink of an eye as he stood in for Joia.
Beethoven received some good marks in his dressage tests and was awarded a champion ribbon.  Judges for the season were Kim Moats Canada and Lynn Ringrose Moe California for the finals.

Marchadors have lovely rhythmic movement and I encourage MM owners to give this sport a try.

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!

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.
