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.

TGIF: According to the Harvard Health Newsletter, there are at least five potential benefits of spending more time outdoors: Your vitamin D levels will go up - this is a proven anti-aging plan. You'll get more exercise, especially if you're a child - or act like one. You'll be happier, especially if your exercise is 'green' - spending time with your Arabian horse is as green as it gets. Your concentration will improve - focus on your horse. You may heal faster - horses heal us - body, heart & soul. Major Mac V says, "Get outside!" #MajorMacV #SeeThemInHim #TakingHisPlace

We are feeling the Scottsdale FEVER! Remembering the great memories from last year when Major Mac V was publicly presented. Enjoy this great photo by Brandon Bessey of #MajorMacV examining his banner at Scottsdale. It was an epic moment. And the photo does not show the throng of people following him back to the stalls! ... which he took in perfect stride, no surprise.

Major Mac V Progeny Spotlight: OVER THE MOON V (Major Mac V x G Olympia Al Amir) 2017 Black Filly - AHA # 673895 Hello pretty girl! Over The Moon V is a beautiful filly - soon to be a yearling. Her heritage suggests she will be a good athlete and later a fine broodmare. Her sire Major Mac V has proven time and again that he nicks beautifully with mares from the Ali Jamaal family. Her dam, G Olympia Al Amir, is by Amir Jamaal, and therefore a granddaughter of Ali Jamaal. Sheila loved combining the athletic ability of her Huckleberry Bey lines with the exotic beauty of the Jamaal lines. The combination was pure magic! Over The Moon is Scottsdale Signature Stallion nominated and pried at $23,000. #MajorMacV #SeeThemInHim #TakingHisPlace

Fan Quote of the Day - Rachael Venables, "My wish is to have a Varian bred horse. One day, even if I am old and grey, I want one. I have always cherished my talks with Shelia at the Scottsdale show. Some day it will happen." Breed one or buy one - but keep the dream alive and it will happen! #MajorMacV #SeeThemInHim #TakingHisPlace
