May’s Sweetie

(Nugget’s Prince x Eck’s Twiggy)
5/5/1984 – 6/7/2013
A few days ago, I posted about the passing of May’s Sweetie. She was Noel Jones primary driving mare and a valued member of their Herd. She was part of Meril May’s significant breeding program in Ohio, which included some of the great Devan breeding stock. Sweetie was one of our favorites here on the farm. She and her two daughters, NEJ Golddust Alice and NEJ Golddust Emma, have played a major part in our breeding program.

When we leased Sweetie, we also leased her daughters, NEJ Golddust Alice and NEJ Golddust Emma, as broodmares also. Alice is Red Chestnut, Emma is Black.
We have had several foals from each of them.
None of Sweetie’s other daughters have progeny listed via the AMHA Registry.

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.
Emma is open; Alice has been bred to Sleipnir Carbon Copy for a 2014 foal, but has not been confirmed in foal. Alice and Emma and their descendents are easy keepers, herd safe and friendly. Both of them are available for sale.

NEJ Golddust Alice – Produce:

NEJ Golddust Alice (1993) is a tall 15HH Chestnut who has had four very nice long legged foals for us.

Morgan Horses have been part of our family for over Thirty years. During that time, we went to many horse shows and clinics, watched classes from multiple disciplines and styles, visited some of the most famous Morgan Horse Farms, and formed and refined our own breeding plan.

We breed for people-friendly horses with square stances, and good ways of going. Horses that are also alert, intelligent, willing, talented and very beautiful. 

We focus on the OLD GOVERNMENT LINES found throughout The University of Connecticut (UC) and University of Vermont (UVM) breeding programs; featuring UVM Viking, UVM Flash, Mansfield, Panfield, Canfield, Flyhawk, and of course, Upwey Ben Don+ (Stallions) and UC Spicy Lass (our Foundation mare), UC Taffy, UVM Flirt, Upwey Benn Quietude + (mares).

with crosses to the WASEEKA’S LINE via NOCTURNE, (stallion) via W. Showtime and W. Peter Piper (stallions), and W. Thisizit (mare) and others.

and crosses to the ORCLAND LINE via ULENDON, through especially ORCLAND LEADER, via Courage of Equinox+, Orcland Vigildon+ (stallions).

with selected other families brought in to the lines, including representation from some New England, Mid-Atlantic, Mid-West and Western working families.

Our pedigrees reflect modern horses with famous ancestors as up close as you can get. The ancestors’ names are often still visible on their descendants’ written pedigrees. Our bloodlines will cross well with any of the current major breeding programs and our Morgans offered For Sale include our best, worthy of being Foundation stallions and mares for new breeding programs, as well as being companions in the show ring or on the trail.

Our Motto and Mission is: Family Show Horses : Showy Family Horses

NEJ Golddust Emma – 15 HH – Sweet, Black Broodmare

NEJ Golddust Emma (1996) is a solid 15HH, Black broodmare. Emma is a sweet, well-behaved mare, who has had six very sweet, athletic and talented foals for us.

She is a full sister to NEJ Golddust Alice, a chestnut, who is a solid 15HH lesson mare, that we also have on lease. 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. Emma easily can have several more foals. She is open.

May’s Sweetie, her dam, a 1984 Black retired driving and broodmare is available to go with her, as a companion. Emma is an easy keeper and Herd safe, both in a regular herd and in the broodmare band. She is offered For Sale as agents for her owners. We have had them (Sweetie, Alice and Emma) on long-term broodmare lease, but we have stopped breeding for the foreseeable future, and need to reduce our herd subsequent to John’s extensive illness and recovery period. Her owners are willing to let her be sold to someone who will enjoy her pleasant personality and value her Mid-western bloodlines.

We have three of Emma’s foals on our for sale list also: Sleipnir Fieldstone, a 2006 Bay, safe, harness-trained and saddle-trained gelding; Sleipnir Hiwassee, a 2009 Black mare, ready to be finished; and Sleipnir Star Attraction, a 2012 Bay filly, like her dam and siblings, athletic and sweet-tempered. Emma, and Alice, and their dam, Sweetie, are available singly or as a package as agents for their owners. This is the only time a proven black broodmare has been offered for sale by these multi-generation Morgan breeders specializing in Black carriage horses.

NEJ Golddust Emma’s pedigree is available from the Morgan Horse Registry Online. And, at no charge, from All-breed pedigree. All Sleipnir Morgan Horse Farm Herd Members have their pedigrees available on All-breed pedigree.

NEJ Golddust Alice (1993): Is a red chestnut 15HH mare with considerable time as a saddle lesson horse, for our beginner grandchildren, and others, in various sized rings and paddocks; and open yard. Looks good for a taller person, & still nice looking for shorter legged individual. Alice also has had a lot of ground driving experience; she 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. Easy to breed. Caring, but not obsessive mother. All foals imprinted. Good for all handling and care. Trailers well. Has been on trail rides in the past. Stalls or open pasture.
We have her on broodmare lease…and since John’s injury, we will not be breeding for the foreseeable future…and none of us are riding much anymore…two of the “grands” are not around…and there are other “sports” plus allergies! And we drive more than ride.

Alice has a 2010 Red Chestnut Gelding, Sleipnir Resonance (Sleipnir Echo’s Finale) also available For Sale.

Alice’s Full sister, NEJ Golddust Emma, a 1996 Black broodmare is also available For Sale. We also have her on broodmare lease, and she is for sale. Emma has had six foals for us. We have three of them For Sale: a 2006 Bay gelding, 2009 Black mare, and a 2012 Black filly. See separate postings.
Their dam, May’s Sweetie, (Nugget’s Prince x Eck’s Twiggy) a black mare, is a retired broodmare…
She is available with either as a companion…or as a package of all three.

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.

Photo: Sleipnir Carbon Copy

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. 

Sleipnir Carbon Copy

It’s a Chestnut Colt:

Playday Rebecca just had her foal by Sleipnir Echo’s Finale.
He is up and cavorting around the stall, waiting for mom to be ready to play.
Possible names:
Doesn’t have to be Sleipnir Echo’s (something)……but it can be
Resonance
Curio
Superb
Repetition
John, Caitrin and Michael have suggested Tornado, Cyclone, Whirlwind, Vortex etc… because his white star and shortened strip are swirly…and he is bouncing/prancing around his stall.

Name suggestions for the 2010 Foals:

Name suggestions for the 2010 Foals:
It’s that time of the year again. Spring is here at Sleipnir Morgan Horse Farm. Once again the Guess the sex and color, and sometimes the birth order, of the Foals Game is on…
We are also more than happy to have foal name suggestions…
Some for fillies (girls);
some for colts (boys);
and/or some that work for either sex.
We always use our prefix…Sleipnir…I’ll write a couple more blogs about prefixes in general and “Sleipnir” in particular…stay tuned…
And the maximum number of letters/spaces that the Morgan Horse Association allows is: 25   We have, on occassion, run the words together on the form to fit in a special name…for example:  SleipnirSophisticatedLady.

So please get your thinking caps on…and sends us suggestions…either to the farm blog…
Or, if you are shy,  to our email. Email to: DenmanFam@aol.com
