May’s Sweetie

(Nugget’s Prince x Eck’s Twiggy)
5/5/1984 – 6/7/2013
A few days ago, I posted about the passing of May’s Sweetie. She was Noel Jones primary driving mare and a valued member of their Herd. She was part of Meril May’s significant breeding program in Ohio, which included some of the great Devan breeding stock. Sweetie was one of our favorites here on the farm. She and her two daughters, NEJ Golddust Alice and NEJ Golddust Emma, have played a major part in our breeding program.

May’s Sweetie – Produce:

S. Rock Candy is a trail pleasure horse for a family here in TN.

S. Explorer is an Equitation and Hunter Pleasure mount for a large show and lesson stable in OK.

When we leased Sweetie, we also leased her daughters, NEJ Golddust Alice and NEJ Golddust Emma, as broodmares also. Alice is Red Chestnut, Emma is Black.
We have had several foals from each of them.
None of Sweetie’s other daughters have progeny listed via the AMHA Registry.

Both Alice and Emma are easy breeders, good at being handled during deliveries, are attentive, but not possessive, mothers and good for all the routine grooming and handling.
Emma is open; Alice has been bred to Sleipnir Carbon Copy for a 2014 foal, but has not been confirmed in foal. Alice and Emma and their descendents are easy keepers, herd safe and friendly. Both of them are available for sale.

NEJ Golddust Alice – Produce:

NEJ Golddust Alice (1993) is a tall 15HH Chestnut who has had four very nice long legged foals for us.

Alice has been used for riding lessons in various sized rings and out and about on the farm. She has been trailered, stalled, and taken on trail rides in the Smokies in the past.

S. Star Attraction, and her half-sister, Sleipnir Diva, are our only available Get from Sleipnir Carbon Copy. Carbon, a bright mahogany bay is a full brother to Sequoyah, and is available for sale as a stallion or gelded.

We always have wonderful Morgan Horses for sale and always have their prices listed. All have their basics and some are finished.

All our horses sell with current vaccinations, wormings, and Negative Coggins.

Pedigrees for all our horses are posted on: http://www.allbreedpedigree.com

We probably have the largest herd of Morgan Horses in the SouthEast. All the horses that are for sale are pleasant, willing, intelligent companions, with excellent breeding and conformation. We breed for a modern horse that still looks and acts like a Morgan…natural Park to backyard pleasure.

Our Mission and our motto, for over thirty years:
Family Show Horses : Showy Family Horses

In harness in Eastern Tennessee

John and I have always had an interest in Carriage Driving.

Recently, we’ve been auditing some clinics; and been working with some of our Morgans focusing on aspects of carriage driving.
We haven’t abandoned our family’s return to the all-Morgan shows, just adding another dimension.

Over the years, John had two wishes/goals for our Morgans:

(1) to have a Morgan Roadster -to- Bike…Sleipnir Onstar, our 2003 Black Roadster-to-Bike trained Morgan mare was Grand National Top Ten last year. Due to John’s injury and extensive recovery period, and all the tornado damage, we didn’t show her (or anyone) this year – professional or amateur.
(2) to do combined driving events (CDEs). We are working towards that goal now.

Weather isn’t co-operating for our Mondays with Travis here. Second rainy Monday in a row. But John got Wednesday at Travis’ with Sleipnir Sequoyah accomplished last week.

We have four well-trained harness horses available; several with extensive ground driving experience; and a half-dozen youngsters, four of which can begin harness training. We sell our best. Our mission is to share “Family Show Horses : Showy Family Horses,”  and to provide historic pedigrees as up close as possible in a modern horse, that still looks like a Morgan.

Several others of our Morgans are trained to harness.  They are not on the sales list, and need a refresher; we intend to drive them more often also.
Due to his extended time unable to work, and our reduced mobility, we are willing to accept reasonable offers on about 12 of our 21 Morgan Horses; plus, we have three for sale as agents for other owners.  A few of our horses are here for the duration.

Our website is undergoing updating of photos etc…but my blog is up to date re what’s going on at the farm, and other places.

In the meantime, we are enjoying the Autumn with the Herd; and working more and more in harness.
Stay tuned for our weekly adventures bringing along some of the horses driving around the farm.
If you are in East Tennessee, and enjoy horses in harness, in any manner, let us know…they don’t have to be Morgans !!!
There is an active carriage driving group in Middle TN…where we are making friends…and learning ALOT. Perhaps we can do some fun things here in East Tennessee too.

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, 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.
