XOCOLATL BSN


XOCOLATL BSN: DRAMATIC!
Born June 1, 2001, Xoca is a fine Peruvian Paso mare, a dark bay, like rich chocolate.
Her name is an Aztec word meaning, "a chocolate drink."
That's Xoca: a tall drink of hot chocolate.

FRONT, SIDE OR REAR, SHE'S A GORGEOUS, BRAWNY BABE!

The pictures of Xoca below were taken the last week of May, 2006. They're hot off the presses!
These are big photos and may take some time to load. Please be patient––they give a true impression of the mare.


A FRONT SHOT
Notice Xoca's broad chest, straight legs and great feet.

CAPOEIRA BSN
Putting up these conformation shots, we were struck by the similarities between Xoca and her father, Capoeira BSN. Notice the similarity of their front shots. Notice how strong both animals are. If anything, Xoca's chest is broader than Cappy's. (Capoeira BSN was sold to Australia where he's passing on his classic, old-style strength. See Cappy's Page for more details.)

 


XOCA FROM THE SIDE
Notice Xoca's short back, lovely neck and powerful stance.


XOCA FROM THE REAR
I have seen Quarter Horses advertised with a photo like this––except they didn't have hindquarters anywhere near as good as Xoca's.
Have you seen another Peruvian Paso who looks like this from the rear?


A FRONT VIEW SHOWING XOCA'S STRENGTH AND GAIT
Xoca in a beautiful slow gait, paso llano to you Peruvian aficionado's.
Her power is clearly evident in the photo. Notice Xoca's broad chest, straight legs and great feet.



WHO DOES XOCA LOOK LIKE?
This is Xoca's grandmother, the incomparable La Soberbia. Compare her to Xoca in the photos on this page.
Soberbia is a genetic gold mine, the daughter of a direct son of Sol de Oro, Viejo, and out of a full sister to *Mantequilla.
Soberbia produced the strongest horses we've owned, including Capoeira BSN, Xoca's father.
Where does Xoca get her strength? It's genetic.



XOCA GAITING
Notice how she uses her back end, reaching far under herself to drive from the rear.
Notice the short back and pretty head and neck.


XOCA'S QUICK AND HANDY

She can pile through the cones like nobody's business.


HERE SHE COMES!
Barreling along at full speed.


SHE'S QUICK, HANDY AND CAN TURN ON A DIME.

She's fully trained and ready for her new owner, with lots of trail miles.


WHO DOES SHE TAKE AFTER?
This is her father, Capoeira BSN, winning Champion of Champions Performance Stallion.

 


IS THIS THE HORSE FOR YOU? I BELIEVE THAT PEOPLE AND ANIMALS RECOGNIZE EACH OTHER WHEN THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO BE TOGETHER. I'VE HAD DOGS PULL ME ACROSS THE STATE WHEN I LOOKED INTO THEIR EYES ON A PHOTO ON THE WEB.

IS THIS YOUR HORSE? DROP US AN EMAIL IF SHE IS. SHE'S WAITING FOR YOU. AND REMEMBER, XOCA IS THE ONLY DAUGHTER OF CAPOEIRA BSN IN THE UNITED STATES.

XOCA IS AN ALERT, SPIRITED YOUNG MARE. SHE'S EASY TO RIDE IF YOU CAN MOUNT HANDILY AND ARE USED TO SENSITIVE HORSES. YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE AN EXPERT TO RIDE HER, JUST COMPETENT. SHE'S PROBABLY NOT FOR KIDS, UNLESS THEY'RE OLDER TEENS AND MEET THE ABOVE DESCRIPTION. (SOME KIDS ARE BETTER RIDERS THAN WE ARE!)

WE WISH YOU THE BEST, WHETHER YOU FIND YOUR HORSE HERE OR NOT.

XOCOLATL BSN

is the daughter of our beloved stallion,
CAPOEIRA BSN.


CAPOEIRA BSN

Capoeira BSN, or "Cappy", is living example of the old style Peruvian Paso stallion. He is named for the Brazilian martial art, capoeira. Notice Capoeira's exceptional bone. Notice that his feet are large and well shaped, meant to carry him and his rider for many years. You can't see tendons and how his feet wear very well over the Net, but he's got legs and feet "to die for". Cappy has a nice short back, good muscling, a beautiful head set and elegant Andalusian head. His temperament is very, very good. He's all stallion, but sweet. And a Multiple Champion of Champions!

CAPOEIRA BSN has been sold to Australia.
Xocolatl BSN is his only daughter in the United States.
If you want a mare with Cappy's blood,
Xoca is the one and only in North America.

XOCOLATL'S MOTHER,
GABRIELA DE AMANECER


GABRIELA DE AMENECER-- Xocolatl BSN's mother.
Gabriela de Amanecer is a Reserve Champion Breeding Mare and winner of the Mare's Gait Class at the prestigious Monterey Classic Peruvian Paso Horse Show, plus many other ribbons.

Xocolatl's parents are two of the strongest Peruvian Pasos we have seen. Both have exceptional bone and great tendons. Both were ridden all over, in competitions, on the trails, over hill and dale. Neither were ever lame or sick.

Xoca has inherited the best of her parents. She's short backed and compact, has legs "to die for" like both Mom and Pop, and great feet (again, like both parents). She's well gaited and has a sweet disposition, with plenty of brio. With all that, she's sensible and a good horse for a competent rider.
