Major Mac V brings to Varian Arabians the next step in our stallion line that is so valuable in all aspects to the Arabian breed.  We have watched Major Mac V since he was foaled with the hopes that he might grow to be the very important next step in our stallion line. 

Our highest hopes are proving true. Major Mac V has sired progeny that are true to his royal heritage, and already enjoys a worldwide following, without having stepped foot in a show ring. And he never will.

Thoughts from Sheila...

In 1959 we purchased Bay-Abi++ as a two year old stallion and in 1961 he earned US National Champion Stallion and the generations of great stallions bred by Varian Arabians began. 

Now 55 years later we very proudly present Major Mac V, a young stallion that carries the blood of 6 generations in direct line of Varian bred stallions beginning with Bay-Abi++.

Major Mac V  - Testimonials

Just wanted to thank you. I'm so glad Crystal was bred to Major Mac V. MacJestic Prince, aka "Prince," is all I could hope for. He loves attention and always comes over to greet us. He's good about haltering, leading and having his hooves cleaned. What I am happiest about is his calm demeanor. When Crystal is running around because of a noise, Prince just stands in his paddock and watches her.  He has brought so much joy into our lives. Thank you again.

#TBT - Recently a Facebook Friend asked to see an early photo of Major Mac V to see how he has changed and matured into the magnificent stallion he is today... This is Major Mac V as a yearling. Even then he showed beautiful balance, wonderful conformation and type, and the look in his eye that said, "Someday, I will make Sheila proud." We are all proud of the stallion and the sire Major Mac V has become and we believe Sheila is proud of him too. #MajorMacV #SeeThemInHim #TakingHisPlace

#TBT - A needle in a haystack... That's what it's like to find a great stallion, one that is not only physically superior with an intelligent mind and kind heart, but that also has the genetic ability to sire exceptional foals. From the great Bay-Abi++, to the great Bay El Bey, to the iconic Huckleberry Bey, to the great Desperado V (pictured at left), to the great Maclintock V (pictured center), to his brilliant son and the future of the Varian Breeding program - Major Mac V. These stallions helped to create the most influential breeding program in the world, created by one woman's vision, Sheila Varian. With every foal that is born, with every new owner of these foals, and those related to them, our family expands. We invite you to become a part of our family and of history. Major Mac V and his foals await you at Varian Arabians. #MajorMacV #SeeThemInHim #TakingHisPlace

Fan Quote of the Day: Lester Buckley, "I'm just going to move him up into this herd of cows. He is learning he has presence and he has authority..." This quote is from Lester Buckley as he rode Major Mac V at a working cow clinic he gave at the V6 Ranch. Major Mac V - not only is he a magnificent physical specimen, he is so much more.

#TBT - Major Mac V - There's a first time for everything... This photo is from the very first time Major Mac V was off the Varian Ranch and it was his very first time on the trail. Of course he passes every challenge with flying colors because he is intelligent and sensible and most of all trusting. Of course being ridden by master horseman Lester Buckley helped, it would be like taking a dance lesson from Fred Astaire or driving lessons from Mario Andretti. Still, Major Mac V did his part and did it beautifully. This was one of Sheila's last wishes and Major Mac V made it come true and that made Sheila smile. Is it any wonder that we love this stallion so much? Oh, and did we mention he is a phenomenal sire too? Major Mac V - Sheila's last true love... #MajorMacV #SeeThemInHim #TakingHisPlace

We will always love you and your outstanding horses. Major Mac V is the icing on the cake.'" Major Mac V is taking his place - as Sheila wanted - as the senior sire of the Varian breeding program and is exceeding all of our hopes and dreams for his future. If you want a beautiful, kind, intelligent Arabian foal, consider Major Mac V for your mare... #MajorMacV #SeeThemInHim #TakingHisPlace
