Hallelujah! Born March 29,2013

Hallelujah do Summerwind    

Elba Cruzalta(Bella) x La Paz Jivago  (click on their names to view their pages!)  It is a match made in heaven, hence the code name Hallelujah!.  And because of this video!

Nicknamed Halle, she is available for sale.  Please call or email us if you are interested!   We definitely want to sell to a breeder or to someone who is willing to produce some embryos for SW Future Foal.   Her genetics need to be continued!  

Halle is the first foal of the SW Future Foal @ LumberBridge NC facility!  If you are on the east coast, transportation is very affordable, and we always offer payment plans.  Asking $7,500 as a foal.

La Paz Jivago, 24k metallic dunskin, imported to the US
La Paz Jivago

Bella (Elba Cruzalta) is an imported mare of the highest quality who never takes a step that isn’t a smooth marcha picada!   La Paz Jivago represents his Favacho/Tabatinga bloodlines well with solid bone, conformation and athleticism.   Did we mention he’s a drop-dead gorgeous metallic dun stallion?

We believe there is no better way to create your next life partner than to raise it from birth. The bonding, training and fun are priceless!   We specialize in genetics and proven producers.   “When you plant potatoes, you get potatoes”.   Our Mangalarga Marchador foals are predictable and guaranteed!


You won’t go wrong with this foal!  We guarantee it!  Here’s our predictions of what the foal will be like at maturity:

  • Marcha picada or marcha de centro – very smooth
  • Big bodied and solid, A1 conformation, legs and feet, suitable for breeding or pleasure riding
  • Beautiful head with teacup muzzle, fine silky mane (not thick iberian), large eyes, MM ears
  • 15H
  • Born bay, but may grey.  (We thought Tigre would grey, but he hasn’t yet at 2 years old)
  • Pleasing personality, very smart, but fun with a high play drive

SW Update – 2012/2013 SW Future Foals Expected!

SW Future Foal rarely breeds without a person requesting a foal.  However, in 2012, we received frozen Marchador semen from superior stallions from Agro Maripa, Brasil.   This was the first importation of Marchador frozen semen – a project we had worked on for many years.   Agro Maripa has bred Marchador horses for over 30 years and they focus on producing sport horses of excellent quality, beauty, comfort and intelligence.  They have a great formula!  Mr. Marcelo Baptista is student of genetics and puts this passion into practice also in cattle and goats as well as his prized and much loved Mangalarga Marchadors.

Oma de Maripa, a proven producer in Brasil!

So, this year,  we needed to prove the semen from Brasil and so we bred our mares using Maripa frozen semen even though we had no reservation.   We were thinking to keep these historic, unique and fabulous foals to be born for ourselves, but in the end, decided to offer them also as SW Future Foals!  Please contact us as soon as possible if you are interested in one of the SW Future Foals.

Brasilia do Summerwind, a perfect partner for Oma.

To be born November, 2012    Genghis-Khan do Summerind  (code name, you would get to name the foal if you decide to reserve it).   The product of Brasilia do Summerwind, imported in-utero and Oma de Maripa, still in Brasil.  This is our diamond foal: strong, brilliant and clearly a Mangalarga Marchador!   Power!    Smooth and cadenced marcha batida gait, a horse that can perform well at any discipline.

Reserve Genghis for $15,000 or reserve the foal in condominium with SW Future Foal for $10,000.  We are interested in future foals or breeding rights in exchange for the reduction in price.


Ximoio de Maripa, pure Abaiba bloodlines

To be born 2/2013 in AZ:  Hermes do Summerwind (code name, you would get to name the foal if you decide to reserve it.)   The product of Azenha de Maripa, imported MM mare and Ximoio de Maripa, still in Brasil.  This will be our sport horse foal in the true tradition of Agro Maripa!  Ground covering marcha batida!  Add the bonus of the most beautiful features in the head and neck.  Almost pure Abaiba bloodlines, this foal will be the one that people will stop to watch.  Before it is born, I am predicting it may be the most beautiful Marchador in America.

Reserve Hermes for  $15,000 or reserve the foal in condominium with SW Future Foal for $10,000.  We are interested in future foals or breeding rights in exchange for the reduction in price.


SW imported Marchador stallion (frozen semen only) La Paz Jivago. He represents Favacho and Tabatinga foundation bloodlines.
Bella with 2011 Jivago foal Tigre do Summerwind

To be born 3/2013 in NC:  Hallelujah do Summerwind (code name, you would get to name the foal if you decide to reserve it.)  The product of Elba Cruzalta (Bella), imported MM mare and La Paz Jivago, imported MM stallion.  This foal will be a full brother to Tigre do Summerwind, a striped dun, who is still everyone’s sweetheart.   This foal will be pure pleasure, laid back, so smooth, but still athletic, a marcha picada or marcha de centro gait.

Reserve Hallelujah and sing Hallelujah for only $6,500.

Perhaps a fourth as Bacara do Summerwind will be bred this June.  Pricing dependent on stallion used.  We’ll let you know shortly!
