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++.

#TBT: Major Mac V is recognized as the heir apparent to the precious Varian Arabian sire line. However, his dam, Major Tiffany GA, pictured here, also contributes her ties to the Varian program through her sire DS Major Afire, by Afire Bey V. The family resemblance is strongly present in Major Tiffany GA in her structure, style, substance, and of course beauty. What is not evident to the eye is her genetic strength - this is witnessed in her offspring - including Major Mac V. Thank you Major Tiffany GA for the gift of your wonderful son... #MajorMacV #SeeThemInHim #TakingHisPlace

Major MacV Progeny Spotlight: OVER THE MOON V 2017 Black Filly sired by Major Mac V out of G Olympia Al Amir (Amir Jamaal x JB Oksana), owned by Varian Arabians. We absolutely love this filly.

Not only is Over The Moon stunningly beautiful, she has wonderful conformation, balanced and graceful movement, and a great personality. We believe this filly will be a star in the show ring and as a broodmare. She is offered for sale at this time for $25K. Thank you to the Lackey Family in Oklahoma for leasing Varian Arabians Moon's mother, G Olympia Al Amir. This cross with Major Mac V is magic! #MajorMacV #SeeThemInHim #TakingHisPlace

Major Mac V Progeny Spotlight: TF KALEDONIA, sired by Major Mac V and out of TF Kampalah by Botswana. Allison Mehta of Talaria Farms and Sheila Varian were close friends who shared a love of the Arabian horse. Both women were visionary breeders. Allison's breeding program focuses mainly on straight Egyptian bloodlines and her stallion Botswana has been the leading sire at the American Egyptian Event for over ten consecutive years. TF KALEDONIA represents the blending of these two great breeding programs. TF KALEDONIA has the best of her sire, Major Mac V, plus a little something special from her dam as well. Congratulations! We think Sheila would approve... #MajorMacV #SeeThemInHim #TakingHisPlace
