Marvel is a dream come true for Mom & I. When I started looking for a new herd stallion in 2013, I sat down at the table and made a NEEDS and WANTS (or "would be nice, if") list. I needed a horse that was built to drive. He needed to be country or single pleasure, and something that would win at the World level. I wanted a horse that would complement my select group of mares, and take my breeding program to the next phase. Color (buckskin) and personality were a frivolous bonus. I never thought I would be able to check off ALL of the items on my needs & wants list!!
I'll never forget the first time I saw Marvel. I was at the World show in Texas with friends and we were about to go for supper. At the Will Rogers arena in Fort Worth, there is a bridge leading to the parking lot and horses enter the arena under this bridge. I remember crossing the bridge with my stomach rumbling when I just happened to look to my left and see Adelyn Rowland from Hunterberry Hill round the corner driving this gorgeous buckskin. My first impression was--- WHAT a freaky headset.. WHAT a tight barrel.. LOOK at the legs on that sucker.. I suppose I was a little stunned because when I "came to" I was leaning over the railing of the bridge trying to take in this gorgeous horse. I followed him to the warm up arena and fell in love. I remember texting Mom, "He's the one."
I see so much potential in Marvel. Not only is he a next level driving horse with natural talent, but he has something to offer for every mare. A neck a mile long, an extreme shoulder, short back, long hip and legs for days. He has an ultimate, utlra modern pedigree that you will see in most of the top farms in the industry. Marvel is admired by many in the industry.
