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++.

This gem of an article written by Mike Nichols appears to have been published in the Arabian Horse World in 1982... pretty much the heyday for Arabian horses in America. All the truth he speaks of still applies today, perhaps even more relevant than it was in 1982. We encourage you to click on it to make it bigger and read the whole thing. But here is an excerpt: "Maybe breeding horses is no different from any other creative endeavor. If you try to please everyone, you please no one. If you try to please yourself, it is likely that someone else will feel the same as you do. Sheila Varian is a perfect example of this philosophy. She wanted a beautiful horse with intelligence โ€“ a horse that she could ride, that would do what she asked of it. So she bred that horse.... and the rest of us benefit from that because her horses breed on." (Mike Nichols) Little did he realize in 1982 that he would be speaking of Major Mac V. ... I think he would have said it he was Sheila's crowning achievement. #MajorMacV #TakingHIsPlace

Major Mac V Progeny Spotlight: Heeza Mac V 2017 bay colt sired by Major Mac V and out of SSA Halima El Jamaal (Dakar el Jamaal x SSA Babylonia). This mare was leased from the Lackey Family of Oklahoma. Heeza Mac V is another representative of the successful cross of Major Mac V on mares of Ali Jamaal bloodlines. We are finding that Major Mac is siring well whether the cross is with daughters of Jullyen El Jamaal or other Ali Jamaal related mares. Major Mac contributes his athletic ability, charming temperament and enhances the beauty and classic type found with the Jamaal lines. We think Heeza Mac V combines the best of these lines. Heeza Mac V is owned by Varian Arabians. Come visit us to see him and his sire, Major Mac V. #MajorMacV #SeeThemInHim #TakingHisPlace
