Young Untrained, Started, and Fully Harness-Trained Morgan Horses

Hello,
Recently, we have had some requests regarding Pleasure Driving/Carriage Driving/Combined Driving, Class A National Caliber SHOW ready and untrained young horses.
So, I thought I would write some blogs about several subsets of our Morgan Horses.

We have four horses on the For Sale List that are well trained for harness, one Black stallion, one Black mare, and two Bay geldings – one Bright Bay and one Dark Bay.  They have all also been ridden. There are also individual and other group blog postings written regarding each of them. 

Sleipnir Sequoyah is a 2003 proven Black stallion, with superb bloodlines, who is calm and steady in harness. He throws athletic, good-looking, good conformation, intelligent, willing, friendly foals – Blacks and one Dark Chestnut.  He is at his harness trainer’s, with no vices and current in all his handling, and ready to go to a new home either as a stallion, or gelded. He is a trainer’s dream, and safe for amateurs. 

Sleipnir Onstar is a 2003 Black mare who has been recently shown to Grand National Top Ten Roadster-to-Bike. She has superb bloodlines and will be an excellent foundation for someone’s breeding program, or a special outcross for an existing program.  She would be easily absorbed in to a national caliber show barn, or an extra-fancy addition to an amateur owner home. S. Onstar is easily harnessed and driven by professionals and amateurs, has been professionally trained to saddle and has carried Western, Hunt and Saddle Seat tack. In harness, she likes to trot her stuff…and is best for a Roadster-to-Bike, Park, or Pleasure Driving with natural action and lots of go power…no vices.

Sleipnir Celestial Array is a 2002 Bright Bay Gelding who has been an In-hand Champion, pinning over some very nice competition.  He is professionally trained for Western Saddle and has carried Western, Hunt Seat and Saddle Seat tack.  He was started in harness professionally, and finished by a knowledgeable and experienced carriage driving enthusiast, with knowledgeable amateur assistance.  He is well behaved for grooming, handling, harnessing, veterinarian and farrier. Sleipnir Celestial Array has some substantial go power in harness, but still with a flat-footed walk. He is currently working in harness here on the farm, outside of our rings and paddocks. Array is a multi-talented fellow who could excel in any of several disciplines.

Sleipnir Fieldstone is a 2006 Dark Bay gelding with an easy-going attitude. He was well started in harness by the same knowledgeable carriage driving enthusiast, with the same knowledgeable amateur assistance. He then spent time with our harness trainer, and was worked specifically to be a family pleasure driving horse.  He was shown and Grand National qualified at all Morgan driving, to obtain some showing and showground experience.  He was driven at the showground by strangers, did well in the ring, and has been driven at the trainer’s by his then 4 y/o daughter.  Recently, after several months off, he has started being driven around the farm, outside of rings or paddocks, including by John, who hasn’t driven in over a year, and by Elizabeth, who hadn’t driven in quite awhile. Good for all his grooming and handling, he has no vices and is amateur safe.

On our For Sale List, we have six young horses with basic handling, that are ready to be finished either professionally or by competent amateurs, at various price points.  Sleipnir Hiwassee (Black) and Sleipnir Echo’s Celebrity (Dark Brown Chestnut) are 2009 mares that are ready for harness and /or saddle training.  Sleipnir Double Feature and Sleipnir Resonance are red to brown chestnut, 2010 geldings that are ready for harness training, and could be saddle trained soon.  Sleipnir Star Attraction (Bay)  and Sleipnir Diva (Dark Chestnut with chrome) are 2012 fillies (mares) that are ready to be weaned. They can be handled and brought along by amateurs. 

Three mares offered for other owners. NEJ Golddust Alice (1993) is a red chestnut 15HH mare who has considerable time as a saddle lesson horse in various sized rings and paddocks.  She looks good for a taller person, but still nice looking for a shorter legged individual. Alice also has had alot of ground driving experience and has been used to train ground driving as a pair, including by young beginner grandchildren. Alice has had three nice foals for us on lease, two of which are sold.  NEJ Golddust Emma (1996) is her full sister. She is 15HH, and Black Bay. Emma is a broodmare who has had six very sweet and talented foals for us.  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. Alice could probably have another foal; Emma easily can have several more.  Both are open.  May’s Sweetie, their dam, a 1984 Black mare is available to go with either, or both, as a companion. All are easy keepers and Herd safe.

All of our horses are sold current on their vaccinations, wormings, with a Negative Coggins and interstate health papers, if traveling out of state to their new home.  Also, if possible, current with the farrier. All our horses have significant basic handling and are safe for grooming, the veterinarian, and farrier. All have been in stalls, but are usually kept in pasture or paddocks, and have herd manners. Our stallions are kept in 200′ x100′ paddocks approximately 30-35′ apart, with no difficulties. All of our horses have been imprinted at birth. Heights listed are measured cut-down for pasture, no shoes, pads, or show lengths.  Only the horses currently in training are shod. Our horses have good hooves, that they maintain easily; and good legs.

We love to talk about our horses – past and current. We’d be pleased to discuss any of the horse’s particular strengths and talents as we see them for future careers.  Our horses are true multi-discipline capable Morgan Horses; but their various talents and attitudes lend themselves towards some careers more than others. 

I also posted our list of For Sale Horses, including brief headings regarding the horses for sale; and there are older individual and group postings regarding many of these terrific Morgan Horses.

We always have young to finished Morgan Horses available.  Due to John’s injury and long-recovery period, we are willing to negotiate reasonable favorable pricing to good homes where the horses will be treasured and enjoyed. All of our horses over thirty years of breeding have gone to forever homes, where they are valued family members.  We stay in contact with purchasers, and are willing to assist if ever a horse needs to be resold.  Our trainer(s) are available to discuss any of the horses that they have trained, as well as the Herd in general.  We are willing to assist in finding that special Morgan Horse, if we do not have one that suits. And, we are always pleased to just talk horses.

Our First 2012 Foal

2012 Filly Foal by Sleipnir Carbon Copy x NEJ Golddust Emma

Sleipnir Carbon Copy and NEJ Golddust Emma, and their humans, are pleased to announce the birth of their first foal together, a filly (baby girl) born yesterday, Friday, February 24th in the early am.

 
This is Carbon’s first foal, and she is already spoken for, unless someone purchases both Emma and her filly.
 
Currently, the little lady is Bay like her sire (the father horse).  However, she may shed out darker (Seal Brown like her Grand-sire, B-L Rhinestone Kid) or (Black like Emma and her dam, May’s Sweetie).
 
Name suggestions are already flying through the airwaves.  If you would like to make a suggestion, please email us at: DenmanFam@aol.com or GLDenman@aol.com
or TEXT to: 423 284 0899, my cellular.
 
Visitors are welcome, with notice.
 
One delivered safely, and dam (mother horse) and filly are vet checked and doing fine.
 
The filly is very friendly.
 
Emma is a good mother. Easy to breed.  Easy to foal. Willing to let you near the foal; but protective too.
Her foals have sold quickly.  She was not previously for sale by her owners, we have had her on breeding lease. She is currently available for sale; with various options.  She had a relatively early foal this year, so she is available for sale either OPEN to be bred to a buyer’s own stallion or another choice, or bred to any of our stallions.
 
We only have one other of her “produce” (her babies) left on the farm.  A three year old Black mare, Sleipnir Hiwassee (Sleipnir Sequoyah x NEJ Golddust Emma) who is in your pocket friendly and a perfect mix of desirable Morgan attributes.
 

Sleipnir Hiwassee, 2009 Black Mare (Sleipnir Sequoyah x NEJ Golddust Emma)

 One more foal is due this year.  Sleipnir Carbon Copy is also the Sire of that prospective foal. Playday Rebecca is the dam.  She has had MANY spectacular foals for other owners and for us.  We will keep you posted.

NEJ Golddust Emma and filly foal, first morning.

Our herd currently numbers 19.  This includes young horses, horses started  to driving or saddle, finished  show and pleasure morgans all the way to senior citizens; stallions, mares, mares in foal and geldings. Many are for sale, and we sell our best.
