We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of this year’s foal crop. We are expecting three foals this year.
The proud parents to be are:
Sleipnir Echo’s Finale x Playday Rebecca.
Sleipnir Echo’s Finale x NEJ Golddust Alice.
Sleipnir Sequoyah x NEJ Golddust Emma.
Sequoyah and Alice have a 2009 black colt, Sleipnir Smoky Mountain, nicknamed Smoky. He is very leggy, and cute, and should be tall. He could be a showhorse, or a terrific trail or driving prospect.
Echo and Becca have an absolutely gorgeous dark chestnut filly from 2009, Sleipnir Echo’s Celebrity, nicknamed Bree. She is a class A National Caliber show horse prospect. Named after our deceased special showhorse and family 3 generation riding partner, gelding, Sleipnir Selebrity. They were both born on April 1 of their respective years.
So, we are looking forward to what they produce this year.
Sequoyah and Emma had a lovely 2009 black filly, Sleipnir Hiwassee. Her barn name is Hiwassee, or Meadow, which is what ‘Hiwassee’ means in Cherokee. Last year, for Sequoyah’s babies, we chose names related to our area of Eastern Tennessee. Hiwassee has been SOLD to Mike Watson, who has admired our Morgan Horses for a long time, and has looked at most of the morgan horse farms in our Tri-State area.
Further Updates will follow as we get closer to the mares foaling times.
