Registered American Saddlebred Horses
(last updated 24 April 2014)
I have reluctantly decided to end the horse breeding program at The Long Grey Line Farm. After 38 years of breeding to intensify the blood of Kalarama Rex, this is a golden opportunity for students of the American Saddlebred to acquire some precious bloodstock. All horses have up-to-date health care; however, cost of current Coggins and any veterinary examination is the responsibility of the buyer. Contact us with your desires in a horse and price range. We probably have several available.
NOTE: It is customary in our industry that a purchaser's agent receive a commission equal to 15% of the sale price. All prices quoted by the Farm are net to the Farm. If an agent is used, the purchaser is responsible to add 15 % to the prices, either paid to the Farm, which will be dispensed to the agent, or directly to the agent.
FEATURING SHOW HORSES AND PROSPECTS:
We used to send all of the young horses out to a trainer for 30 days of saddle time and basics. They usually left as a late two year old because we believe that the joints and bones, as well as the mind, need some maturity before asking for serious work. All will require ground work and then a total refresher course because they have not been ridden since their initial training. They will remember their lessons with some patience on your part. Saddlebreds are natural sport horses and were used by the US Army Cavalry Jumping Team in the years between WW I and WW II. These old bloodlines offered here are all capable of being credible Sport Horses as Jumper and Dressage competitors or for Endurance or Distance Riding. They can also earn their keep as Working Ranch Horses. The wonderful American Saddlebred Horse is versatile as well as beautiful!
The following broodmares are being sold. A sale is pending on several mares.
1998 Mare - Perpetual Kiss - Bay - Sire: The Silver Lining by Yorktown, Dam: RHF Love Notes by Starheart Peavine by Starheart Stonewall. (Starheart Stonewall traces to my great grandfather's trotting stallion, Almont.) She is a shy mare and has been mishandled in the past. We catch her at the gate and lead her to the stall for the night. You must gain her trust and then she is fine.
Martha Twigg - Chestnut - Sire Bugle Notes, Dam Evans' Bold Twigg. I will have to look up her age. She is around 12. The Twigg horses trace to Jack Twigg, a stallion from Berea, KY. who was sold to Iowa. Her granddam showed Jack Twigg on the papers, possibly Astral King also. Her breeding is very old. The gaits are very smooth and you can easily sit the trot. I think that the Confederates surely must have ridden Twigg horses to have been able to endure 60 miles a day!
Rhapsody in Motion - Sire: Castletown by Yorktown, Dam: by Broadlands' Kilarney, Bred to Caisson. She has so much motion in the field, but was never trained. Disposition typical of Wing Commander. Her foals have been exceptional.
Ice Dreamer - Sire: Vanilla Ice This mare was trained as a show horse until her horrific injury to a front foot. She has produced an exceptional foal every time. Her filly by Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy produced a Texas Futurity winner for David McCoy Stables, Lake Charles, LA. Her gelding by Wingate's Chindit was sold and is on the show circuit in Kentucky and Indiana. This mare is crippled and requires a stall at night. She gets around on three legs most of the time, but goes to the pasture each day with the broodmare herd. She is in foal to Caisson. If you are willing to give her a little extra care, she will reward you with a wonderful foal. She is a great mother with lots of milk.
Also for sale - Caisson - Grey Breeding stallion - Motion,_Athletic - Easy breeder - Kind - Great Personality_- Proven Producer. ____________________________________________________________________________________________
2008 stallion - The Grey Prince - Grey colt by General Withers, Dam Carolina Waltz by Johnny E. Carol never had anything but a quality foal. This one, her last foal, is a beautiful rose grey, talented, with exceptional motion and worthy of remaining a stallion, definitely a show horse! He has 15 Broodmare Hall of Fame broodmares in his 7 generation pedigree. Click for picture He won the Arizona Futurity Horse Show Open 2 Year Old In Hand class. See ring photos at the top of the web page. He is in training with Koos Van Den Berg in Harrodsburg, Kentucky and is currently being finished as a gaited horse. He was shown by Koos as a fine harness stallion in 2013. Koos is willing to breed him. If you are interested, let Koos or me know. I'll guarantee that his stud fee will not remain low for very long. His colt of 2013 is excellent.
2009 filly - Kiss In The Mist - Grey/bay base - Sire: Pacific Mist, Dam: Perpetual Kiss by The Silver Lining, 2nd dam by Starheart Peavine. Beautiful and very tall, flashy, great motion, long neck, what more could you desire? Starheart Peavine traces to my great grandfather's trotting stallion, Almont. She has 22 Broodmare Hall of Fame broodmares in her 7 generation pedigree. Kiss In The Mist is in training with Koos Van Den Berg at Kentucky Creek Stable. She has been gaited and will be a ladies or juvenile mare.
2012 Grey Filly - Summer Twigg - Pacific Mist/Martha Twigg - Beautiful filly who looks like a pretty good show pleasure horse prospect. She probably will be under 15.2, but she could have a growth spurt.
2012 Chestnut Filly - Sumkinda Dream - Wingate's Chindit/Ice Dreamer - Very tall, much motion, long neck and legs and resembles her full brother, Our Liberator, who was in training with Koos Van Den Berg, until sold. A great gaited prospect!
2012 Grey Filly - Misty Belle - Wingate's Chindit/Fairlawn Belle - A handsome grey filly. Her dam was a harness horse. Her granddam was a gaited mare. Wingate's Chindit's blood brother was Merrill's Marauder, a harness stallion that I showed in Kentucky.
