Oldfield Wild Iris Show Debut

Our yearling filly, Oldfield Wild Iris, made her show debut at the Morgan Masterpiece this July.  She earned a blue ribbon in her yearling fillies class, was Jr. Champion Mare, and was reserve in the yearling sweepstakes. In addition to being drop dead gorgeous, she has a good ability to learn and she is all show horse. She will be started in harness in early 2015.  We are also expecting a full sibling to Iris (Hylee Galaxy's Wild Irish x Bethlehem Morning Glory) in April 2015.

We want to give a big thanks to Jim Riggs and Rustic View Farm for their expert preparation and presentation of Iris!

Congratulations to Indy's new owner!

Congratulations to Leslie Beyer of Wadsworth, IL, on the purchase of Oldfield Envoy.  "Indy" is a brown 3 year old gelding by Issues N Answers out of our matriarch and super-producer, Rose. He is a full brother to Oldfield Diplomat.  He is laid back with a quiet mind and was started under saddle early this year by Jim Riggs of Rustic View Farm.  He will be finished by Rebecca Zinke for Leslie, who will use him for dressage, huntseat and trail riding.  We wish them many years of happy riding together!

Congratulations to Matthew's new owners!

25 quality head of Morgan horses were offered for sale at the Hylee Auction this past weekend.  We really want to thank Jackie Sweeney, her entire staff, and Bill Addis Auctioneers for the A+ job they did in previewing the horses and allowing us to present them to their best advantage to a very good audience of serious bidders both in the arena and on the internet.  We could not be happier with the way they ran it, the good contacts and connections we made, and the excellent, clean, friendly facilities for our horse.  We also want to thank Jim Riggs and Rustic View Farm for their work with "Matthew" and the excellent condition and presentation of him at the auction. "Matthew," Oldfield Diplomat, lot 6, was purchased by Terry King of King-Lehr Stables in Seville, OH, and we look forward to seeing him on the Morgan A-circuit in 2014!

Big Top Circus Parade - Downtown Baraboo Celebration

Although quite a chilly day for July, the rain held off and the Big Top Circus Parade and Downtown Baraboo Celebration on July 27th came off very well, with many thousands of people lining the streets of my hometown to watch an old-fashioned circus parade, complete with elephant, marching bands, circus wagons, and mounted units. The Wisconsin Morgan Horse Club had a booth on the square, the star of which was Vicki, an 11 month old filly, who lives with Barb Holder and LUVS Morgan Rescue.  Vicki drew many folks to the booth, and volunteers answered lots of question.  The Morgan Parade Unit, human and equine, also looked great and performed like the professionals that they are.  Hopefully this will become an annual event.
