Major Mac V
 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++.

Just to Demonstrate the Popularity of Major Mac V... Varian Arabians bred a total of 147 mares this year to the five stallions standing on the farm and six outside-owned stallions via shipped semen. That number, in and of itself, deserves an applause by the breeding and office staff at Varian Arabians... 147 MARES!!! Of that total number, 67 of them were bred to Major Mac V. Broken down, that means that of the 10 stallions who were used on mares this year, 46% were to Major Mac V... a horse that has never stepped foot in a show ring. That has to be a record number for an unshown show horse in America. Sheila envisioned his future, and Angela is seeing it through to fruition. He is TRULY #TakingHisPlace in the royal line of Varian stallions. http://bit.ly/2jFNPqJ

#SaddleUpSaturday - Sheila Varian understood that the closest bond we can have with our horse is when we saddle up. We become one; they give us wings and a completely different perspective of our world. What they receive in return is up to us. Sheila encouraged respect, kindness, clear communication, and a worthy reward for their effort. Major Mac V is Sheila's vision of the future for Varian Arabians - looks like the view is beautiful... #MajorMacV #SeeThemInHim #TakingHisPlace
