Nicola MAC
Dam: Olaia (MCB)

About Nicola (MAC), see the Stallion Gallery at the Interagro´s Website.

The dam Olaia (MCB), from Eng. Braga [father of the Lusitano Collection partner Manuel Braga (SS)], is a palomino mare by the famous Novilheiro (MV) and Unida (OI), from Oliveira Irmãos, a Portuguese breeder known for the excellent buckskin mares and bullfighting bulls he breeds. Olaia (MCB) has an offspring of six: Tobold (by Forcado); Urussui [Nicola (MAC)]; Veredicto [Farao (JHC)]; Xolaio; Ziegfield [Farao (JHC)]; Alfacinha (Tufão Interagro). Veredicto and Urussui were exported to the U.S.

Trainer’s opinion: When you see this horse you see pure elegance! His beautiful face and lovely light flowing movements are a pleasure to watch. His black color with a hint of red only adds to his mystique. Xolaio Interagro is very sweet, gentle, sensitive horse. His leggy appearance, free shoulder, elastic movement really adds to his potential. Xolaio has a cat like quality. He glides across the ground and has super balance. This horse really has quality gaits. He can easily demonstrate a naturally good walk and canter. He has a great attitude about learning. Xolaio’s sensitivity is more emotional then over sensitive to his rider’s seat. I think that he would not be well suited to a rider that has limited patience’s. He seems to take everything to heart and would probable crumble if his rider was too harsh. He can show some basic stallion behavior calling to mares or getting excited when the herds are moving around. He shows a characteristic of his father Nicola Interagro, who likes to talk. We notice that Nicola’s babies often talk even if it is low tone greetings when you approach. Xolaio’s stallion behavior is very reasonable but for a person that does not have experience with stallions it may be intimidating. Xolaio is easy to ride and is not over reactive to the rider’s aids but the rider would need to have enough experience to keep him focused on his job and give him more confidence while he is maturing. I feel confident that Xolaio with the right program will blossom into a lovely competitive horse and a beautiful stallion.
