Sleipnir Fieldstone, is a 2006 Bay gelding.
(B-L Rhinestone Kid x NEJ Golddust Emma)
Fieldstone is Rhinestone’s last gelding.
He is closely related to Sleipnir Explorer, who had pinned GN Top Ten last year, and was sold to a lovely young lady who fell in love with him at OKC. She has qualified with him and is showing him at GN again this year. Same sire, and Fieldstone’s dam is a daughter of Explorer’s dam.
Fieldstone is also closely related to Sleipnir Onstar, a 2003 Black Roadster-to-Bike who was Top Ten at the Grand Nationals last year.
Fieldstone is professionally trained to harness. He has a calm temperament, with a flat-footed walk. We used him for a grooming demonstration at an Open Barn event as a 2 y/o, with three 7-8 y/o boys doing the demonstration. He also stood nicely for a crowd around him. We took Fieldstone to two Extension Service Day-on-the-Farm Events for first graders and their families. He ate up the attention and the carrots.
He has been trained to saddle by an amateur teenager, with professional guidance, and has been ridden around our farm.
While he was in harness training, the trainer’s 4 y/o daughter drove him; and stood with him in the crossties getting kisses.

In the two driving pictures with John, it was the first that Fieldstone had been driven in several months, and it was the first that John had driven since before his injury last October. Fieldstone stood for the electric wheelchair coming over to him, and for John getting in and out of the cart.
Our trainer trusted Fieldstone with his daughter. And we trusted him to stand well for John.
Fieldstone has been shown in harness at a qualifying show for the Grand Nationals, and drove strangers around the showgrounds. We are going to continue to work him in harness for John and I to drive.
If you think of our herd in thirds…a third as retirees who are here for the duration; a third as replacement bloodlines to continue our breeding program; and a third that are for sale, because someone needs to be…Fieldstone, Sleipnir Celestial Array, Sleipnir Double Feature, and Sleipnir Resonance are our geldings for sale. We also have mares and stallions available for sale.
Sleipnir Fieldstone personifies our motto of over thirty years duration:
Family Show Horses : Showy Family Horses.
