U C Spicy Lass – Our first horse – The Matriarch

It was 1980, and the five of us, John, Elizabeth, Caitrin, Britta and I, were all having riding lessons; and John and I were having driving lessons.
The girls were just 10, 7 1/2, and just 6.
After looking at various options, we purchased our first horse, a Morgan horse, from the University of Connecticut. Dr. James Dinger was in charge at that time, and he gave us a tour of the horses available.

U C Spicy Lass (U C Marquis x U C Taffy) a chestnut mare with good conformation and a kind expression, was trained to ride and drive, and, though it didn’t matter to us at the time, she was a proven broodmare, and in foal by U V M Viking (U V M Flash x U V M Kathy) for a Spring foal.

Out in the yearling paddock was her chestnut filly from the previous year, U C Cinnamon (by U V M Viking) a full sibling to the foal that was due in 1980. While she was very cute, we intended to have only the new horse. We even intended to sell the foal to recoup part of the cost of the mare. We also had no intention of having our own farm…just boarding/training “Spicy.”

Many horse and non-horse people, especially those who know us, are now laughing hysterically…but further parts of the story are for other postings.

So, we tried her out. “Student” trained horses can have different positives and negatives from “professional” trained or “amateur-owner” trained horses…also a post for another time. She was wonderful…patient and willing for grooming, tacking, leading, etc. Just what we needed for a family horse, especially for first-time owners.

She had two flaws. First, she had a fleck of clear pigment flawing her right eye, which could be genetic or nutritional. Second, as I was riding her down a straight away, we were suddenly going in the opposite direction. A little bit more iffy, but we all thought that it might have been my fault, and if hers, correctable with work.

So, we purchased her, loaded her up, and brought her to Massachusetts to Paula Payson’s (our trainer/riding & driving instructor) farm.

Spicy was a perfect first horse and family horse.
U C Spicy Lass was much more than that.
It is not too much to say: She totally changed our lives.

We acquired a new set of friends, acquaintances, and nodding recognition. We traveled to visit farms – especially Morgan Farms. We gained new wardrobe additions and equipment. Our family vacations were, mostly, scheduled around the New England Morgan Horse Shows. Connecticut Morgan, Massachusetts Morgan, Vermont Morgan, Granite State Morgan, Maine Morgan, and New England Regionals all became the focus of our schedules and training throughout the 1980’s.

Most importantly, Spicy safely delivered a chestnut colt. We needed a name for the colt and a prefix for the farm.

“Sleipnir” was a mythological horse. He belonged to Thor, and carried the “Viking” warriors to “Valhalla”, their Heaven. He was portrayed with eight legs to indicate how strong and fleet of hoof he was. With the history of the Morgan Breed, in particular Figure’s strength, speed, and temperament, and UVM Viking for his sire, the farm name/prefix became “Sleipnir” and the colt was named “Valhalla”. Sleipnir Valhalla (“Hal”) (1980 – 2005) joined his mother as a family saddle, harness, in-hand and showmanship contender, and at-home buddy.

Spicy changed our lives.
Our home, and lifestyle, changed. A farm and a herd followed.

Spicy delivered two more foals for us.
Sleipnir Selebrity, (by Donnybrook Celebrity) (1982-2009) “Seppy”, another chestnut colt, subsequently gelded. He too followed in his Dam and brother’s hoofsteps.
and
Sleipnir Constelaton, (by B-L Rhinestone Kid, the Patriarch of the Herd, 1980-2009) (1983 – ) “Connie” a bay filly. Her story still continues 30 years later.

We lost Spicy too early to debatable causes after S. Constelaton’s birth. However, her impact on our family, and on the Morgan Breed and horse world, continues thirty years plus and in to the future.

Farms in Massachusetts, Iowa, and now Tennessee became central to our lives, defining a good part of our family life.

Hal and Seppy helped to teach our grand-children their love of horses, how to care for these gigantic souls, and how to ride and drive. Also, how to handle the passing of beloved family members.

After Spicy’s death, we went back to the University of Connecticut and purchased U C Cinnamon (1979 – 2011) “Cinnie”. She and Connie have continued Spicy’s dam line to both sides of our pedigrees.
They and other members of the herd have impacted the lives of horse people and visitors in uncountable ways.

U C Spicy Lass is buried at our first farm in Gardner, Massachusetts. But her spirit, her legacy, her influence is still alive and well in Tennessee.

Kimberly McGee up

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.

Meet the Sleipnir Morgan Horse Farm Geldings, Part 2 of 2: Two 2 y/o Chestnut Geldings: Sleipnir Double Feature and Sleipnir Resonance

Two 2010 Geldings and Two 2009 Mares running in pasture

Meet Sleipnir Double Feature (D F) and Sleipnir Resonance, our two 2010 red chestnut/sorrel Morgan geldings.  In the picture above from Front to Rear, it is S. Resonance, S. Double Feature; then two 2009 mares: S. Hiwassee, a black mare by Sleipnir Sequoyah and S. Echo’s Celebrity (a full sister to D F).

Sleipnir Double Feature (Sleipnir Echo’s Finale x Playday Rebecca)  (“D F”).  D F is the essence of all that we hoped for from a cross between Echo and Rebecca.  He is intelligent, athletic, handsome, friendly and willing to please, with a great way of going.  He is royally bred with a pedigree filled with athletic, people-friendly, and beautifully formed ancestors.  He should mature around 15hh+/-.  He has all the talent and temperament for a multitude of disciplines; either as a National level, Class A caliber show horse in Pleasure Driving, a fancy friendly family horse, or an athletic competitive carriage driving horse.  S. Double Feature could be paired with either S. Resonance or S. Echo’s Celebrity.  Like all our horses, we have every reason to keep him; but we sell our best, and with John still recovering from his foot wound/infection that he acquired while attending the 2011 W/GN MHS in OKC, we are not able to devote the attention to our herd that they deserve.  Everyone who sees this guy wants to get driving him!! and by Fall, he’ll be ready to saddle. Get him now, and train him your way. He is priced at $5,000.00, and we would prefer a home where he will be able to be fully utilized to his best advantage.

Sleipnir Resonance (Sleipnir Echo’s Finale x NEJ Golddust Alice) Resonance is slightly redder chestnut than Double Feature (D F); but still close enough to be a pair. He is super friendly, and comes right to the fence for bits of carrots and to be scratched.  Resonance is also by “Echo” and out of one of our  favorite producing mares, “Alice”.  Alice is a great mother, easy to breed, and to deliver, and nice to work around her foals. She is also a great horse for beginner riders of any age for in the schooling rings.  She is tall enough for a man, and pretty enough for a woman, and has been a lesson horse for all our grand-children, plus others.  (She is available For Sale by her owners; we have her on lease). Resonance had an eye injury earlier last Autumn, but has completely recovered.  His veterinarian is available to confirm that his vision is unaffected.  The flaw does lead us to price him slightly lower than he would usually be: at $1,975.00.  He should mature to the same range as DF.   Alice’s foals have been sold for breeding stock as well as permanent members of family farms.  Resonance is a bit further in his handling training due to his eye injury, and need to be handled and stalled.  People who have worked around him will agree that he is a sweetheart with tons of potential in various disciplines, singly or as a pair.

Either singly, as a possible pair, or combined with any of our other offered horses, S. Double Feature and Sleipnir Resonance, would make friendly and athletic additions to anyone’s stable or paddocks.  For those buyers that prefer red and brown chestnut/sorrel to other coat colors, they would be a treasure.  These fellows are ready to train to drive your way, or soon enough will be ready for saddle training for the Fall.

They are current on their vaccinations, have negative Coggins, and are ready to travel.  S. Resonance has been trailered several times, and been stalled at different places, and in a large pasture with company of various ages. D F has been in a couple different stalls, but mostly in a large pasture where he can run and play, with and without Resonance, and with horses of various ages.  Both gentlemen stand for the veterinarian and the farrier and for basic grooming.  They were imprinted as foals, and can be pastured with other horses, young and older.
