Registered American Saddlebred Horses
(last updated 12 Jamuary 2015)
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. She has been bred to Caisson for a 2015 foal, but has not been preg checked.
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. Ice Dreamer has a filly foal by her side.
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 and Cobi Van Den Berg, until sold. A great gaited prospect!
