The Produce of Playday Rebecca

A few years ago I was captivated by a photo of a lovely Palomino Morgan Mare with excellent bloodlines (Triagn Smooth Sailing, aka “CeCe”). She was available, and so was her dam, Playday Rebecca (“Becca”).  We had several hopes from the purchase of the two mares, some of which have been realized, and some still pending. Look for some further up to date photos of Becca and her produce for us coming soon.  In the meantime, here are a few teasers.

Besides several nice foals for others, and CeCe, Becca has had three excellent foals for us:

NEJ Golddust Alice (Golddust Miner M C x May’s Sweetie)

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Alice (5/19/1993 – 9/2/2013). This tall, elegant dark red chestnut mare came to us on a broodmare lease in 2002 along with her dam, and her full sister, NEJ Golddust Emma.

Alice, a Registered Morgan Mare had a pedigree that featured popular Beamington & Devan+ Bloodlines up close.  She was 15.2+hh and looked equally nice as a mount for a man or a woman.

We utilized her for a period between foals as a lesson horse for our grandchildren. While she was never a harness horse, she did know how to ground drive well, and she was instrumental in teaching our grandchildren to ground – drive, and also in instructing Sleipnir Southern Cross in tandem ground driving.   

As a broodmare, she was easy to breed, handle, and foal. Alice graced us with four foals.

Sleipnir Onyx by B-L Rhinestone Kid, a fancy black mare that was sold to be a parade horse and broodmare;

Sleipnir Smoky Mountain, by Sleipnir Sequoyah, a tall black gelding that became a family pleasure horse.

Sleipnir Resonance,  by Sleipnir Echo’s Finale, a friendly red chestnut gelding that we hope to train as a harness pair .

and Sleipnir Kobayashi Maru, by Sleipnir Zenith, a handsome dark brown chestnut colt that is still whole. 

Alice was fine this morning while I was visiting the Herd. Elizabeth noticed that she was down this evening as she was finishing feeding. After consultation with her veterinarian, and her owners, she peacefully joined the herd that is waiting on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge.
While we did not breed her, she was an integral part of our Herd and our breeding program for over a decade.
NEJ Golddust Alice knew that she was loved and valued; and she will be missed.

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.

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.

Meet the Stallions: Part 1: Sleipnir Echo’s Finale and his Sleipnir-prefixed Get available

Hello

Here is a reference photo of Sleipnir Echo’s Finale (Exquisite Sir Echo x Sleipnir Constellation, by B-L Rhinestone Kid).  Echo is our Chestnut stallion.  His sire was a popular show horse and breeding sire. His dam is our very lovely, now retired, former New England and Mid-Atlantic winning Pleasure Driving mare and retired broodmare.  She was also a model in her younger years, gracing the cover of the Horseman’s Yankee Pedlar; and her photo was requested by the AMHA to appear in a volume of the Morgan Horse Registry as an example of an ideal Morgan Mare.  This was when photos were chosen by committee for inclusion in the Registry Volumes, not included as advertizing revenue.

His foals for us and outside breeders have all been people-friendly, easy-going, athletic, intelligent, well-put-together, gorgeous Chestnuts…either red or brown.  He throws a pretty head, solid hooves, close coupled body, good legs, tiny ears and kind eyes.  He has excellent Old Government, Wasseka’s, Orcland via Ulendon, and other top long-term breeding farms in his bloodlines, and he can cross with all of the older style and the currently popular bloodlines…for national caliber show horses, calm and steady carriage driving prospects, and family friendly backyard companions.

Sleipnir Echo’s Celebrity (“Bree”) is a Dark Chestnut/Liver Chestnut 2009 mare who is absolutely gorgeous and quite friendly. $7,500.00

Sleipnir Double Feature (“D. F.”) a brownish red chestnut 2010 gelding is not quite as dark as “Bree”; and not as red as “Resonance” but could make a driving pair with either S. Echo’s Celebrity or S. Resonance.  Everyone who sees him cannot wait to see him driving.  $5,000.00

S. Echo’s Celebrity and S. Double Feature are royally bred. Bloodlines to conformation say these horses have beauty, athleticism and talent.  These two are out of Playday Rebecca (Stoneholm Taliesin x Stoneholm Alameda) who has had several really spectacular foals for other breeders as well as for us.  She is currently in foal by Sleipnir Carbon Copy (B-L Rhinestone Kid x Coeur d’Alene, by Breezeway out of a Funquest bred mare) for 2012.  Due for delivery soon!

Sleipnir Resonance is a redder chestnut/sorrel 2010 gelding, by Echo out of NEJ Golddust Alice, a red chestnut, tall, proven broodmare and lesson horse that looks good under saddle for either a man or a lady.  S. Resonance had an eye injury last Autumn.  His veterinarian will verify that his vision is unaffected, but he does have small residual scarring that will only get smaller as he grows. In light of that, he is for sale for less than the cost of his vet care.  A sweet horse a bit further along in his leading, stabling, etc. due to his injury.  $1,975.00

He has also had Get for another breeder, who has sold his Echo babies as driving horses; and who says his Echo babies are the most pleasant to work with that he has ever had.

Sleipnir Echo’s Finale is 14.3hh, flat-hooved, no shoes, and trimmed for pasture.

His Stud fee is $1,000.00, live foal guaranteed.

All Sleipnir Morgan Horses have their pedigrees listed on www.allbreedpedigree.com; where you can also do “hypothetical” breedings. 

All of our For Sale Horses always have asking prices listed and available.  All are current on their vaccinations and wormings, will sell with a current negative Coggins, all have lots of basic ground manners – stand for the farrier, veterinarian, and grooming/handling by amateurs. Many are trained to ride and drive.  All maintain a good hoof, are trimmed regularly and cut-down, trimmed for pasture.  Only the horses currently stalled in training carry a longer hoof and wear a shoe.  Most of the mares and geldings have been pastured together at various points in time.

Every Sleipnir Morgan Horse Farm horse ever sold in our over thirty years of breeding has gone to a permanent loving home. 

Our Spring Open House date has not been scheduled due to John’s recovery from his illness and our tornado related rebuilding work.  Visitors are always welcome, with notice preferred.  Contact Georgia at 423 284 0899 Cellular and Texts, or Denmanfam@aol.com and GLDenman@aol.com for email.
