Buckeye Morgan Horse Sale Friday and Saturday, June 4 & 5, Ashland, Ohio

The Buckeye Morgan Horse Sale is Friday and Saturday, June 4 & 5, Ashland, Ohio

Sleipnir Morgan Horse Farm wants all lovers of nice Morgan Horses to know that three horses sired by two of our stallions are being offered in the Buckeye Morgan Horse Sale, running Friday and Saturday, June 4 and 5 in Ashland, Ohio.

Frank Farner, from Athens, Tennessee has three yearling Morgan Horses in the Sale.

Two, a gelding and a filly, are by Sleipnir Echo’s Finale (Exquisite Sir Echo x Sleipnir Constellation, by B-L Rhinestone Kid x UC Spicy Lass).

One, a gelding, is by Sleipnir Sequoyah (B-L Rhinestone Kid x Coeur d’Alene by Breezeway, out of a Funquest/Morayr Supreme mare).

Sleipnir Echo’s Finale’s Get are:
A Chestnut Colt, who has been Gelded, Farner’s Traveler, Sale Number 199. Traveler sells on Saturday, June 5th. Traveler is described by his owner, Frank, and handler, Dawn Krenner, as being “refined and beautiful”.  They say that “he has a great temperament, and will excel in the show ring.”  That should definitely be true as Echo, himself, is all of those things.  Echo has an excellent temperament, quiet and calm, and was bred from talented show horse lineages on both sides of the pedigree.
Farner’s Traveler was recently shown at the Liberty Classic Horse Show in Cleveland, TN.

An excellent photo of Traveler is on Elizabeth L. D. McGee, the Liberty Classic Horse Show photographers’ website: www.ImagesnMemories.com  >> Horse Shows >> Liberty Classic 2010 >> Friday afternoon >> page 4 of 9, photo number 36 of 73, (Dawn Krenner, Handler). I suggested her for the job!

And

A Chestnut Filly, Farner’s Lucy Long, Sale Number 55. Lucy Sells on Friday, June 4th. Frank and Dawn describe Lucy as “pretty and gentle with a great personality.”

Sleipnir Sequoyah’s Get is:
A Chestnut Colt, who has been Gelded, Farner’s Cherokee, Sale Number 133. Cherokee sells on Saturday, June 5th. Cherokee is described, by Frank and Dawn, as “Hot and Flashy with size and a great length of neck”.

His sire, S. Sequoyah, is a customer favorite here at the farm. We have him listed for Sale, as we do not need four stallions and his talent and pedigree are not being utilized to their full potential. He is smooth moving, and a gentleman to his mares at breeding time. He is smart and pleasant to work with. Cherokee’s dam is a very nice mare.

Frank and Dawn say that: ‘All three have had extensive groundwork. They all stand to be tied, bathed, fly sprayed, and clipped. They all trailer well.’
We have had all three dams on our property for several days when they were in to be bred. The dams are pleasant mares that are nice to be around. Mr. Farner drives Traveler’s and Lucy’s dams as a pair, in Events and at shows.

These three youngsters should grow up to be pleasant horses to work with, and exciting to watch in the show ring. Morgans who will mature to be a credit to their breed.

Photos of the sires can be seen on  www.ImagesnMemories.com  >> Sleipnir Morgan Horse Farm >> Public Galleries >> Stallions At Stud and For Sale.
You can also get to their photo galleries from the photo tab on our Home page:  www.SleipnirMorganHorseFarm.com
Each of our four stallions has a gallery. Three of them are For Sale and At Stud. Sleipnir Echo’s Finale is only offered “At Stud”.

2010 Foal Watch: Join the Guessing Game

2010 Foal Watch:

It is the end of March, and the 2010 Foal Watch and guessing game have started in earnest. 

While we dream all year long about the breedings (aka crosses) and the hoped for foals, in Spring we are constantly reminded that the foals will be arriving soon!!!

Each year, we play a guessing game…sometimes it includes who will deliver first.  But always, it is filly or colt, and what color coat.

Some definitions are needed here:

A foal is a baby horse.

A colt is a male baby horse.

A filly is a female baby horse.

A mare is a female adult horse.

A broodmare is an expectant, or delivered, mother horse.

A stallion is an adult male horse, capable of breeding.

When he is used for breeding, he is also called a stud.

A gelding is an older male horse, that is surgically unable to breed.

Some folks call any foal, of either sex, a colt.  This is not accurate, and leads to questions like: ‘Is it a colt colt? Or a filly colt?’  Answer…’the foal is a colt’.  Or: ‘The foal is a filly’…

So…now for the guessing game:

We have three mares bred, two to Sleipnir Echo’s Finale, a chesnut; and one to Sleipnir Sequoyah, a black.  The mares are: a chestnut, NEJ Golddust Alice (who is for sale by her owners, with or without the foal, see our Sales List), and two Black Chestnuts: Playday Rebecca, and NEJ Golddust Emma (her 2009 black yearling filly, Sleipnir Hiwassee, was recently SOLD).  Emma is blacker than Becca.

I will put up another blog about coat colors.  And you can also go to www.morganhorse.com to look at morgan coat colors.

Now to the guessing

I’ll guess that Sleipnir Sequoyah x NEJ Golddust Emma’s foal will be a black filly.

I’ll guess that Sleipnir Echo’s Finale x Playday Rebecca’s foal will be a chestnut filly.

I’ll guess that Sleipnir Echo’s Finale x NEJ Golddust Alice’s foal will be a chestnut filly.

I am pretty sure that that’s the order that they were bred…it is the order that they delivered last year.  So, if you want to guess on the birth order, that’s fine too…One hint:  Alice was last to be bred.

Please add your guess to the blog…or send us an email if you are shy…Email to: DenmanFam@aol.com

We’ll let you know the results as the foals are born.
