Winter 2014: Farm News

In the midst of winter, and its been a VERY cold one here in Mid Atlantic, its hard to see forward to Spring, but the lovely tulips for sale in the grocery store promise its coming. This Spring we are waiting for a gaggle of Eclipse kids - with D Bar J Tirza, Trailhead Lucy, GRM Darlin Clementine, and Statesmans Lady Grace (yes, this will be line-bred Statesman - I did this several years ago and the result was a gorgeous black filly, whom I should have NEVER sold). This will also be the second cross between E and Clementine, which last year resulted in Heirloom, who is lovely. We also had an hmmm "unauthorized date" between our junior stallion Ensigns DbarJ Covenant and Flower of Bandida. Although we questioned Bandida's morals....hussie...she is lovely and he is spectacular, so we're anxious to see what this cross will look like. We hope to cross Covi on Grace this Spring - this will harken back to circa early 1900s when they crossed Ulendon on govt mares. We think they're going to make GREAT dressage horses.

We will also get the black Morgan mare pair out to picnic drives and other low key events in hopes to ready them for CDE competition. Will let you know how that goes...

And lastly, our lovely Sara, Ensigns Graceful Seraphim, is slated to go to Cathy Frederickson to begin her eventing career. We are VERY excited for this match...Cathy was my event instructor years ago and we think Sara will love her new job.

January 2014:

We feel honored that horse artist Karen Brenner painted our senior stallion, Statesmans Eclipse in two portraits featured on her website under "Beautiful Horses of Maryland and Delaware. Please visit Karen's website to view the portraits


This is a dream come dear friend Will Slabaugh put this pair together for me at his home in KY. I went and picked up the girls this past week. The horse in PERFECT frame is Sally, Ensigns Solstice, an Eclipse daughter and the off horse is HG Valiant Black Lillie. I hadn't planned on a pair of black mares, but that's what I had on the farm!!! :) That is Wills son Marc driving them. What a LOVELY job they did with this pair!!
