Sleipnir Fieldstone, 2006 Bay Gelding and Elizabeth L.D. McGee

Here is a photograph of Elizabeth driving S. Fieldstone last Monday.  Unfortunately, it is pouring rain today. So, no driving today…but we do need the rain.

This is the first time that Elizabeth has driven in a long while. She used to show Junior Exhibitor Pleasure Driving in New England…I won’t say how long ago.

As you can see, she is driving Fieldstone out in the open. No ring. In the pictures with John driving, same thing. We are doing the same with S. Celestial Array. And hopefully we will get a few others back in harness this Autumn.

S. Sequoyah will be coming home from his harness training soon. Then it will be another’s turn.

Nice autumn weather will return after the rain.

We are all looking forward to more fun on the farm.

2006 Bay Gelding - Harness and Saddle

Sleipnir Fieldstone

Sleipnir Fieldstone
John Denman, whip

Sleipnir Fieldstone, is a 2006 Bay gelding. 

(B-L Rhinestone Kid x NEJ Golddust Emma)

Fieldstone is Rhinestone’s last gelding.

He is closely related to Sleipnir Explorer, who had pinned GN Top Ten last year, and was sold to a lovely young lady who fell in love with him at OKC. She has qualified with him and is showing him at GN again this year. Same sire, and Fieldstone’s dam is a daughter of Explorer’s dam.

Fieldstone is also closely related to Sleipnir Onstar, a 2003 Black Roadster-to-Bike who was Top Ten at the Grand Nationals last year.

Fieldstone is professionally trained to harness.  He has a calm temperament, with a flat-footed walk.  We used him for a grooming demonstration at an Open Barn event as a 2 y/o, with three 7-8 y/o boys doing the demonstration.  He also stood nicely for a crowd around him.  We took Fieldstone to two Extension Service Day-on-the-Farm Events for first graders and their families.  He ate up the attention and the carrots.

He has been trained to saddle by an amateur teenager, with professional guidance, and has been ridden around our farm.

While he was in harness training, the trainer’s 4 y/o daughter drove him; and stood with him in the crossties getting kisses.

4 y/o young lady driving Sleipnir Fieldstone

In the two driving pictures with John, it was the first that Fieldstone had been driven in several months, and it was the first that John had driven since before his injury last October.  Fieldstone stood for the electric wheelchair coming over to him, and for John getting in and out of the cart. 

Our trainer trusted Fieldstone with his daughter. And we trusted him to stand well for John.

Fieldstone has been shown in harness at a qualifying show for the Grand Nationals, and drove strangers around the showgrounds. We are going to continue to work him in harness for John and I to drive.

If you think of our herd in thirds…a third as retirees who are here for the duration; a third as replacement bloodlines to continue our breeding program; and a third that are for sale, because someone needs to be…Fieldstone, Sleipnir Celestial Array, Sleipnir Double Feature, and Sleipnir Resonance are our geldings for sale.  We also have mares and stallions available for sale.

Sleipnir Fieldstone personifies our motto of over thirty years duration:

Family Show Horses : Showy Family Horses.

Meet the Sleipnir Morgan Horse Farm Geldings, Part 1 of 2, Sleipnir Celestial Array and Sleipnir Fieldstone

With the sale of Sleipnir Explorer (B-L Rhinestone Kid x May’s Sweetie), our BAY 2006 gelding, to his new show home in OKC with Savannah and Julie Mitchell, we have four other geldings available. Two are mature and trained to ride and drive. Two are two year olds and have all their early handling training done.

Sleipnir Fieldstone   Gelding   2006   Bay   Class A rides & drives
Sleipnir Double Feature   Gelding   2010   Chestnut   Class A caliber

Sleipnir Celestial Array w/ John Denman, whip

Array is a 2002 Bay Gelding (Hylee’s The Rage x Sleipnir Constellation, by B-L Rhinestone Kid) with impeccable bloodlines and excellent conformation. Array has been a Show Champion in-Hand at a Class A morgan show, is professionally trained to be ridden Western and has also been worked by our grand-daughter, Amber, under Hunt tack, under the direction of Sue Nerland, a well-known former Equitation Instructor/trainer.  He has been trained on the ground and hooked by a well known carriage driving/pleasure driving enthusiast, with amateur assistance. 

There is a video of him being driven on the Blue Ridge Morgan Horse Association – For Sale page. 

http://blueridgemorganhorseassociation.yolasite.com/horses-for-sale.php

S. Celestial Array is 14.3hh, barefoot, trimmed for pasture.  He is current on all his vaccinations, and with a Negative Coggins.  He stands well for the farrier, veterinarian, and to be groomed in the cross-ties by amateurs.  He has been trailered safely several times. No vices. Can stay in a stall or in a paddock. He doesn’t bother paddock fences.

He is a multi-talented fellow who is Class A, national caliber, for a multitude of versatile disciplines. He deserves to have someone who has more time to devote to just him.  We have several more young horses needing further training, and Array is too talented to be sitting in the paddock, under-utilized. He is a favorite of visitors to the farm and along the rail.

John injured his foot this past Autumn at the Morgan Grand National Horse Show (not due to a horse)…So, we have been more than a little occupied with a long saga with his health. We are hoping to get back to driving as the weather, and his health, improves.

SLEIPNIR FIELDSTONE

Fieldstone, (B-L Rhinestone Kid x NEJ Golddust Emma) a BAY 2006 gelding is also 14.3hh, unshod, and trimmed flat for pasture/paddock living.  Currently he is stalled at our trainer, Travis Olinger’s. He is well-behaved in a paddock or pasture also, singly or with others.
Our only remaining gelding by our deceased senior stallion, Fieldstone was trained to ride by a professional trainer & our family – amateur grand-daughter, Kimberly, with professional direction – hunt seat & western tack.  He has been trained to drive by a professional trainer, for primarily home based pleasure driving; shown at one morgan show in Pleasure Driving – did well, trailered, tacked, shown in ring for first time, driven on the grounds by amateur visitor with no experience with him…took it all in stride.

Fieldstone is closely bred to Sleipnir Explorer, our Grand National Top Ten equitation gelding.  He is by the same sire, out of a daughter of Explorer’s dam, May’s Sweetie.
Solid and sensible describes Fieldstone.  All our morgans are very people friendly. Fieldstone loves carrots. He is very calm and cool for handling & driving…Travis hooks by himself.  His horses stand quietly.

See the photos of Travis’ daughter, MaryKate, giving kisses in the crossties: www.ImagesnMemories.com >>> Sleipnir Morgan Horse Farm – Public Gallery >>> Geldings For Sale >>> Sleipnir Fieldstone.
We used him as a two year old for a grooming demonstration by three 8 y/o boys at an Open Barn event; He was fine for the active boys and also fine with a crowd approaching. (Photos: Same Gallery)
S. Fieldstone was also brought to an TN Extension Service Fun On The Farm Day with county-wide first grade classes and home-schooled children and all their family members. Fieldstone stood in a metal square pen and let multiple children pet him, feed him carrots, and have family members take flash photos…trailered well. (Photos: Same Gallery).

Fieldstone has been shod. He stands well for the vet and farrier. He has been kept unshod, just trimmed at home. Fieldstone keeps a nice hoof. He is current on all vaccinations and has a Negative Coggins.  He has been trailered several times in local area under 50 miles.
Prices: Sleipnir Celestial Array and Sleipnir Fieldstone are priced comparatively at $7,500.00 and $7.250.00 respectively. Their prices are negotiable to good loving homes.  We have been morgan horse breeders for over 30 years, and we pride ourselves on matching our horses to new human companions.  EVERY horse that we have sold has gone to a permanent home with their new humans.

You can obtain additional details from S. Fieldstone’s trainer, Travis Olinger, at his email: atolinger@charter.net  or via phone at 423 341 7930  or call or text me at: 423 284 0899.  Our emails are: DenmanFam@aol.com or GLDenman@aol.com They are both really nice horses, who each deserve a special home.

There are four geldings also for sale  (Sleipnir Explorer went from the Grand Nationals to a show home):

The other has been an In-hand Champion and comes from superior showhorse lines. Again, no vices.  Current on all vaccinations and a negative Coggins. Stand for farrier and veterinarian. Get them now; or compete against them later. Safe for home pleasure driving or Class A national caliber show horses.

Sleipnir Explorer goes to a Show Home in Oklahoma

Sleipnir Explorer, Amber McGee up

Our 2005 Bay gelding, Sleipnir Explorer (B-L Rhinestone Kid x May’s Sweetie) went to Oklahoma City, OK for the Grand National Morgan Horse Show in October, 2011. Several young girls saw him there, and were captivated by him. One young lady, Savannah Mitchell, and her mother Julie, have purchased him.

Explorer, aka “Zippy”, was brokered by Sue Nerland, who had guided our grand-daughter, Amber McGee, in training him; and by Mary Shappee & Gert Shuckhart of Majic Stables, where Explorer went from the show grounds, and where he will remain in training and for Savannah’s lessons.
