Georgia’s mini-Essay for Horse & Driver Directory – 2013

We are proud to be a long-time Morgan Horse Family; Breeding and Showing Morgan Horses since 1979. We are especially interested in the preservation, promotion, and sharing of Morgan Horse pedigrees, in a modern horse.

This is a family operation with three generations feeding, training, and maintaining the herd. Good Manners are every bit as important to us as correct conformation and the Morgan’s intrinsic beauty and terrific personality.

We have all ages. Suitable for various disciplines. Classic Morgan bloodlines and temperament. Blacks, Seal Browns, Dark Chestnuts, Bays, & a palomino. National caliber horses for the show ring, CDE, trail, or backyard.

Our horses are groomed near geese, ducks, chickens, guinea hens, cats & dogs.
Sleipnir Morgan Horse Farm is located in East Tennessee at the foot of the Smoky Mountains, off Interstate 75, between Chattanooga and Knoxville.

Our motto and mission – Family Show Horses : Showy Family 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.

Sleipnir Onstar at The Grand National Morgan Horse Show

I have posted news about Onstar earlier.  Here are two pictures of her at the 2011 Grand National Morgan Horse Show in Oklahoma City.  Both photos are by Howard Schatzberg.

 In Elizabeth’s gallery for our mares that are for sale, there are other pictures that Elizabeth and Travis’ wife, Audra, have taken of Onstar being driven. There’s even a picture of me driving her.  I’ll have Elizabeth comment with a direct link to Onstar’s “gallery”.  But you can go to www.ImagesnMemories.com >> “Galleries” >> Sleipnir Morgan Horse Farm – Public Gallery >> Mares For Sale >> and choose Sleipnir Onstar’s Gallery.  There are galleries for most all of our “For Sale” Horses as well as “historic” photos.  I recently found some other “historic” photos, and we will be scanning and adding them soon.

Onstar traveled to and from OKC and did well in her stall, grooming stall, ready ring and class.  This was only her second time in a ring with traffic, and she handled all the lights and noise of the Coliseum for the Roadster class like a trooper.  She is kid kissable, and like all our horses, stands well for the farrier, veterinarian, etc; and is current on all vaccinations, wormings, and such.
