B-L Rhinestone Kid, Senior Sire of Sleipnir Morgans

1980 – 2009

Photos by Suzy Lucine

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.

Horse and Driver Magazine

The premier issue of Horse and Driver magazine is online.

There are lots of interesting articles, and useful ads and announcements for various parts of the driving community.

Even if you have never driven, you’ll find articles of general interest inside.

And if you are a driver, carriage or otherwise, you’ll also find plenty of interest.

http://issuu.com/horseanddriver/docs/fall2013_final

We have an ad in the issue. As you’ll see from the photos, we have horses who will be great friends for all sorts of driving experiences.

The editor, and her advisors, Denice Barton, has worked very hard to produce this new magazine as a resource for people who love horses, and are interested in driving them in some manner. Let her know what you think…she has surveys and her direct email for suggestions.

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.
