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.

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 Breeding Plans

Fidalgo do Summerwind, a 2011 baby reserved by Lynn Boone, NC

Normally, SW Future Foal only breeds by reservation.  Reserving a foal today means that the baby will be born next year in February or March.   We work with you to make sure we are breeding the combination of parents that will produce the ultimate horse that you desire.   All of the parents are proven producers and we can tell you about them and the foals they have produced (still working on that on this website!)

2012 is coming out a little differently.  Because we imported frozen semen from Brasil, we will be breeding this year – to prove the semen’s effectiveness – whether or not we have a reservation for the foal.  WE KNOW THEY WILL BE GREAT!

Like this! Maripa bloodlines are proven and pure.

SW Future Foal Breedings:

  1. Oma de Maripa, at Agro Maripa, Brasil. Frozen semen exported to the U.S.

    Azenha de Maripa x Ximoio de Maripa – to be bred in March.  Her foal is not yet reserved and may be retained by SW.  Private treaty pricing – it will be more than $6,000.

  2. Bossa Nova de Miami x Oma de Maripa – to be bred in March.  Her foal is already reserved.
  3. Brasilia do Summerwind x Oma de Maripa – already bred.   Foal is not yet reserved and is currently planned to stay with SW.   If offered, it will be private treaty pricing, e.g. more than $6,000.
  4. Elba Cruzalta x Tiziu de Maripa – to be bred in March.   Foal will be born in NC.  Foal is not yet reserved and is currently planned to stay with SW @ Lumber Bridge.
  5. Luminosa da Joatinga x Ator Fazenda Zouga – she has been sold to Flying Oaks Ranch in Oklahoma, but the foal can be reserved from them.  Asking $6,000  (She’s been removed from the SW website, but you may have seen her there before)
  6. Bacara do Summerwind – We were not planning to breed this year, but perhaps an option.  Pricing would depend on stallion choice. (Bossa Nova daughter; she will be added to the website soon!)  Located in NC.

SW Future Foal Embryos:

  1. Azenha de Maripa x La Paz Jivago A glorious combination.  Foal will be the full sibling to Beethoven do Summerwind, bay or buckskin or dunskin and maturing around 15 or 15.1H.

Currently, only 1 frozen embryo is left for sale.   In 2013, we plan to replenish our stock with exquisite and unique combinations from SW breeding stock and Brasilian frozen semen.  If we are lucky, perhaps that is also the year that we import frozen embryos from Brasil.

Because the embryos are frozen, they can be implanted in any recipient mare.

SW Frozen Semen Offered for Sale:

  1. La Paz Jivago
  2. Oma de Maripa
  3. Tiziu de Maripa
  4. Ximoio de Maripa

We are expecting shipment of one more stallion’s frozen semen in 2012, but can’t predict when it will be.  He is a black and white pinto.

Do you have plans of your own?  Use our frozen semen with one of your mares to make your dreams come true.




SW Update – Future Foal @ Lumber Bridge

Elba Cruzalta (Bella) with her foal, Tigre do Summerwind

SW Future foal expands east to North Carolina!  WIth the addition of Elba Cruzalta, Jeff and Michelle Bosley now own 2 foundation MM broodmares.   Between the two mares,  they cover the spectrum of the Marchador breed characteristics.   Reserving a SW Future Foal from one of these mares could be the horse of your dreams — and now,  closer than ever if you live on the east coast.

Jeff and Michelle and their 2 children, Luke and Rachel keep their horses at home with them and are ideally located in North Carolina’s horse country with access to miles of trails.

About the mares:

Elba Cruzalta – imported grey Mangalarga Marchador mare with impeccable Abaiba/Bela Cruz bloodlines.  Nicknamed Bella, she is a marcha picada mare with a champagne gait – so smooth, you won’t spill a drop.  She passes along her beautiful eyes, look and smooth gait to her foals.   She is 14.3, but because her conformation is so perfect, she looks much larger, like a Lusitano mare.   Double registered with the USMMA and with the ABCCMM, her foals are also eligible for dual registration.

Bacara do Summerwind – Bred by Summerwind here in the U.S., Bacara is a mix of Herdade and J.B. bloodlines.  Both Herdade and J.B. are known for their marching gait in Brasil.  Unlike many other MM bloodlines, bay and black are prevalent.   A classic marcha batida gait, Bacara is so athletic and powerful, she is a candidate for almost any riding discipline.   Yet unbred, we hope that Bacara will pass along her great Iberian hair, her confident personality and athleticism to her foals.

Meet Jeff and Michelle:

Jeff Bosley – I have spent 20 years in the USAF; 7 years enlisted and 13 years as a commissioned Officer (Major).  I have a BAS and Masters in Physician Assistant Studies (MPAS).

I grew up on a farm and remember how as a child I was given the opportunity to take care of problem horses for several months at a time on two separate occasions. Most of what I have learned came through research and a love of horses. More recently, I have been fortunate to have been mentored by John and Lynn Kelley and still have much to learn.

I am first and foremost passionate about the Mangalarga Marchador.  When I first came across the breed 10 years ago I was just looking for a good endurance horse. After becoming involved with the MM first through research and later after owning my first mare,  I have become a huge fan of their unique blend of characteristics.  I have realized you don’t have to sacrifice a gentle disposition or a willing temperament for spirit, energy, and athleticism. I knew my goal was to become a breeder by the time I retired from the USAF.  I enjoy working with them because of their willing spirit, intelligence, and gentle disposition.

My goal is to be an ambassador of the Marchador breed. I hope to accomplish this by first promoting them in every venue possible, either personally  as a facilitator or secondly, through a strategic responsible breeding program.

Michelle Bosley – Jeff and I bought our first Mangalarga Marchador in 2007.  Bacara do Summerwind was only eighteen months when she came with us to Lumber Bridge, NC.  At that time, I really didn’t know that much about Mangalarga Marchadors.  My Mom owned and bred Peruvian Paso’s while I attended college, and I would ride them when I went home to visit.  So, the Marchador was new to me.

After marrying Jeff and seeing his passion for horses, I began to enjoy them more also.  I’ve always loved being around horses, but never really worked with them much before I met Jeff.  Now that we have had Bacara for four years, I have been able to see what a difference a horse can make in one’s life.  My horsemanship has improved dramatically based on the relationship I share with Bacara.  We recently purchased two more Marchadors and are excited that they will be here this April.

We are just beginning to breed the Mangalarga Marchador, and our dream is to continue bringing this great breed to the United States.

Tigre do Summerwind! He's moving too! He'll be Jeff's riding horse when he is old enough.
