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.

 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.

It is time to start the Foal Contest

We, as breeders, have been anticipating the 2012 foals for over a year now…Actually, we have crosses planned in our minds and on paper for decades…some will occur; some won’t.

Playday Rebecca (Stoneholm Taliesin x Stoneholm Alameda) (Very Dark Brown) and NEJ Golddust Emma (Golddust Miner M C x May’s Sweetie) (Black) are in foal to Sleipnir Carbon Copy  (B-L Rhinestone Kid x Coeur d’Alene, by Breezeway) (Mahogany Bay) for 2012 foals.

Emma was bred first, and ‘Becca second.  However, ‘Becca could deliver earlier than Emma.

John is projecting  two fillies: ‘Becca’s Seal Brown and Emma’s Black; with Emma being first and ‘Becca second.

I am also projecting two filles:  ‘Becca’s being Bay and Emma’s being Seal Brown; with the same order as John.

John has suggested Sleipnir Carbon’s Playday as a name for ‘Becca’s foal, suitable for a colt or a filly, any coat color.

Depending on their coat color, I like something similar to Sleipnir Black Gold for Emma’s foal…Elizabeth had a Tri-color collie that we used that name for, and we called him “Tex”. 

You can add your guesses.  Either add them as a comment below; or send them as an Email, and I’ll keep tabs.  You can guess anonymously if you would like …

No prize, except seeing the resulting foals.

Family Pleasure and Class A national caliber, people-friendly Morgan Horses Available.

GET READY FOR SHOW SEASON, driving local trails, or raising a foal or young horse of your own.

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. So far, every morgan horse that we have sold has gone on to a permanent home.  A fact that we are very proud of as Morgan Horse breeders for more than thirty years.  We are a three generation family farm.

We have four stallions available At Stud. Two Bays, One Black, and One Chestnut. Three of the four are available For Sale.  Each one is pleasant, tractable, has great conformation, good movement, and is beautiful. The two bays and the black are the ones for sale.  They could also be gelded, and be spectacular geldings. No vices. Current on all vaccinations and a negative Coggins. Stand for farrier and veterinarian.  All been ridden by amateurs and have been seriously prepared for driving via long-lining +. The black has been in driving training.

There are four geldings also for sale  (Sleipnir Explorer went from the Grand Nationals to a show home):

Two gorgeous, friendly Bays, who are mature and have been ridden in various tack and who both also drive.  One had significant driving training and can be driven by a 4 y/o, as well as being fine for youth and adults. The other has been an In-hand Champion and comes from superior showhorse lines. Again, no vices.  Current on all vaccinations and a negative Coggins. Stand for farrier and veterinarian. Get them now; or compete against them later. Safe for home pleasure driving or Class A national caliber show horses.

Perfect examples of our motto: Family Show Horses : Showy Family Horses.  Ready for their own special humans.

Two younger chestnut geldings. Two years old. Almost a matching pair. Family friendly; Show horse quality. Ready to be finished as an amateur trained pair or professional quality singles. Like the two older bays: Get them now; or compete against them later. Safe for home pleasure driving or Class A national caliber show horses. No vices. Current on all vaccinations and a negative Coggins.  Stand for farrier and veterinarian.

And NOW The MARES: We have a number of lovely ladies available; and some that we would also consider for on-farm Broodmare lease.

We have a spectacular BLACK mare who is a Grand National proven showhorse in Roadster-to-Bike. She has MANY hours of professional training with a well-known driving trainer.  She can alter her speed from him to an amateur owner.  She is also trained for saddle, and is super friendly, and loves carrots!  Safe to hook single-handed…safe to stand in harness…will not balk for amateur handler(s).  Stands for the farrier and veterinarian.  Has trailered locally and long distance with no balking at loading, or hauling. No vices. Current on all vaccinations and a negative Coggins. She will definitely be in the ring for someone this year…make sure that someone is you!

Some other really nice mares…for pleasure/local homes or the class A show circuit or the breeding shed. Famous bloodlines up close, with the conformation, beauty, movement, presence and human-loving character than are the strong points of the Morgan Horse breed.  Bloodlines that will cross well with all the popular lines.

Sleipnir Explorer goes to a Show Home in Oklahoma

Sleipnir Explorer, Amber McGee up

Our 2005 Bay gelding, Sleipnir Explorer (B-L Rhinestone Kid x May’s Sweetie) went to Oklahoma City, OK for the Grand National Morgan Horse Show in October, 2011. Several young girls saw him there, and were captivated by him. One young lady, Savannah Mitchell, and her mother Julie, have purchased him.

Explorer, aka “Zippy”, was brokered by Sue Nerland, who had guided our grand-daughter, Amber McGee, in training him; and by Mary Shappee & Gert Shuckhart of Majic Stables, where Explorer went from the show grounds, and where he will remain in training and for Savannah’s lessons.

Sleipnir Fieldstone (B-L Rhinestone Kid x NEJ Golddust Emma) 2006 Bay Gelding – Harness and Saddle

Sleipnir Fieldstone - Autumn 2011

Sleipnir Fieldstone is from Rhinestone’s final foal crop; and he is out of one of my favorite mares, Emma, who we have on a breeding lease. Fieldstone is trained for harness and saddle. 

He is one of two well trained mature geldings that we have for sale. The other is Sleipnir Celestial Array.  We also have several mature geldings on our sales list for other owners.

Fieldstone has been handled by both professionals and amateurs since his birth. All our foals are imprinted at birth…more on that topic later.

He was started in his ground driving training by a very experienced long-time carriage driving enthusiast, whose family has had morgan horses for generations.  Fieldstone recently has been in professional driving training to be completely finished as a safe family driving horse.  He has been shown in Morgan Class A pleasure driving, but that is an aside from his family driving.

Travis  Olinger, his trainer, showed him at the 2011 Liberty Classic Horse Show.  Travis’ email is: atolinger@charter.net  He trains harness horses. His family is prominent in Hackney pony and Saddlebreds in Harness here in Eastern Tennessee.  He likes to work with amateur owners.  We are encouraging an appreciation for our family friendly morgan show  and backyard horses.

 S. Fieldstone was recently shown in Pleasure Driving at the 2011 Liberty Classic Horse Show. I will post pictures, etc from that in another blog posting.

After his class, Fieldstone also was driven on the show-grounds by an amateur beginner new to him.

He has been trained to saddle by our middle grand-daughter, Kimberly, when she was a younger teen-ager…beginner.  He has been ridden in rings of various sizes and in our fields.  She has severe allergies so she has not been up on him for awhile.  But his driving is totally up to date.

Fieldstone loves humans, especially the little ones. We have used him as a grooming demonstration horse as a 2 y/o, with THREE 7 – 8 y/o boys…and a surrounding crowd.

He also has gone as a breed representative to a Farm Extension Day for all the county first graders, and extended families, and home schoolers.

S. Fieldstone is a prime example of our breeding motto for over thirty years:

“Family Show Horses : Showy Family Horses”
