Major Mac VThoughts 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++.

Fan Quote Of The Day - Jay Bonnie Sammy: "I was able to touch this beautiful horse in person. My daughter and I went to his stall. I looked him into his eyes, talked to him, and kissed that sweet face. I will never forget meeting him." Sounds like Jay was a little star struck when she met Major Mac V at Scottsdale. It's difficult to say which is most captivating - his physical beauty, his intellect, or the beauty of his kindness - Major Mac V has it all and now, so do his foals. That is the Varian legacy... #MajorMacV #SeeThemInHim #TakingHisPlace
