B-L Rhinestone Kid, Senior Sire of Sleipnir Morgans

1980 – 2009

Rhinestone, aka “Mickey” became ours in 1980, as a weanling. He was trained to both harness and saddle. He was shown in the mid-1980’s at several of the Class A shows in New England.  Our first foal, Sleipnir Valhalla (UVM Viking x UC Spicy Lass), and he were turn out buddies, stablemates, trailermates, and show stablemates.

Rhinestone was first bred to U C Spicy Lass, our first Morgan, for a 1983 foal, who became a filly, Sleipnir Constelaton.  See a separate forthcoming post about her.

He went on to sire more foals for us, and others,  in Massachusetts, and after our move to Tennessee.  He was always a gentleman to his mares, and never came off his feet until John told him ok.

Three of our current herd sires are his sons:  Sleipnir Carbon Copy (x Coeur d’Alene); Sleipnir Sequoyah (x Coeur d’Alene); and Sleipnir Zenith (x Hip Heath Zanna). And our other herd sire is a grandson, Sleipnir Echo’s Finale (Exquisite Sir Echo x Sleipnir Constelaton). He has another son who has been active as a Stud.

We still have a few of his daughters in the herd also.  Sleipnir Constelaton is retired, and our current matriarch at 30 y/o; Sleipnir Sophisticated Lady, a full sister to S. Zenith; and Sleipnir OnStar (x NEJ Golddust Louise). He has other daughters who were sold to be utilized as show horses, parade, breeding, and family trail horses. And grand-daughters out there too.

We have one of his gelding sons, Sleipnir Fieldstone (x NEJ Golddust Emma) as one of our primary family harness horses.  The other is his grandson via S. Constelaton (Sleipnir Celestial Array). He has gelding sons as national show horses, lesson horses, trail, and backyard pleasure mounts.  One son has been an actor in historic re-enactments. He also has grandsons performing in many of these careers.

Rhinestone was born in New York, and lived in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Iowa and Tennessee.  He is buried here on the farm near his buddy, Valhalla and other here-for-the-duration members of the Herd.

Sleipnir Sequoyah – Black Morgan Stallion

20130928-040454.jpg

Sleipnir Sequoyah (B-L Rhinestone Kid x Coeur d’Alene, by Breezeway x a Funquest Consuelo daughter) is a proven black stallion. Sequoyah is a 2003 model.

He has returned from several months harness training at Travis Olinger’s Saddle Creek Stable, Cleveland, TN. Travis is a well known harness trainer from a long time horse show family.

Sequoyah is easy going and friendly; and stands to be hitched by a lone person. He is kind to his mares, rides well to be trailered, has no vices, is current on all his vaccinations etc; and is equally comfortable in a stall in a training stable or out in a large turnout at home. He has been ridden in the past. We are well pleased with his Get; though he could be gelded if that would better suit a purchaser. He is available At Stud to an outside mare, or through an on-farm broodmare lease.

There are further pictures from various stages of Sequoyah’s training in my blog, and on Elizabeth McGee’s website, http://www.ImagesnMemories.com

His full pedigree can be seen on All Breed Pedigrees, as can all the Sleipnir Morgans.

He has one daughter, a 2009 Black mare, Sleipnir Hiwassee (x NEJ Golddust Emma) available for sale.

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.

Sleipnir Kobayashi Maru, a black colt, is weaned and ready to go. We will geld him, or sell him as a colt. He is currently our only planned foal from Sleipnir Zenith, who is also available as either a stallion or gelded.

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.

NEJ Golddust Emma – Produce:

NEJ Golddust Emma (1995) is 15HH, and Black. Emma is a broodmare who has had six very sweet and talented foals for us.

Hiwassee is our last available Get from S. Sequoyah. Sequoyah, a Black easy-going harness horse with significant training is available for sale as a stallion or gelded.

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.
