Miner Morgan Sales List

Prices as of November 2016

Miner Institute maintains a herd of Morgan Horses as the core of the educational program. All horses owned by the Institute are donated, home bred, or the result of a donated stallion service. Our goal is to raise a few foals each year to carry the Heart's Delight Farm registered prefix of "HD." All HD-prefixed horses are NYSMHS Futurity Nominated or Alumnae. As well as our own horses, we maintain free leases on breeding stock to continue to improve the bloodlines and quality in our herd. There is usually a selection of horses to choose from for sale.

For more information, contact Karen Lassell at lassell@whminer.com or call 518-846-7121, ext. 120.

HD BLISS

(Canon x HD Massena) (2014) “Bliss” is a bright chestnut that is elegant and feminine with good size and a bigger heart! A slogan often heard with the Morgan Horse is that it is the “horse that chooses you”; we know Bliss will bond with her person someday, but right now, she chooses EVERYONE! UVM Springfield’s mark as a sire of correct, trainable, and beautiful horses is really coming to light with several GN champions in the last few years and now a few breeding sons are ready to do the same.  Canon is the only offspring out the remarkable park harness mare, Pastorale, making his pedigree truly one of a kind and this cross with HD Massena looks to be an outstanding addition to the breed.

Her sire's by Tug Hill Whamunition and carries the full weight of the Townshend breeding program through his dam. HD Massena has produced many nice offspring already for us, and "Mae" is no exception. Easy to train and solid in stature, Mae is well-started in lines and has willingly accepted a rider.

HD SANDY CREEK

(UVM Jubilant x Sugarlane Dominique) (2012) A flashy chestnut with a blaze, this filly is keen to learn, but is her own girl! “Sandy” is feminine and refined, but don’t be fooled, this girl loves to work! Well-started in lines and ground driving around the farm like a champ, Sandy’s got a trot we could watch all day.  We think she’s going to be a head-turner in the sport horse divisions- dressage, carriage or whatever, she’s sport with style.

HD IRONDALE

(UVM Jubilant x Sugarlane Dominique) (2011) Tall bay gelding with the slow legs that are going to make him a western pleasure star! "Ferrous" is easy to get along with and easy on the eyes too. Lunges, longlines and is great for farrier and vet. He did well in his first saddle classes at the county fair with his student rider as a junior hunter and western horse and went on to the NYSMHS in Sept. 2015 to get good scores and better comments in Introductory Western Dressage.  He’s fun on the trails too! Ferrous would make an ideal all-around family horse.

STRATEGY

(UVM Springfield x Salem Maurada) (2007) The Paradise Morgan breeding program liked this cross enough to do it several times and we know why.  Strategy is a handsome 14.3 hand dark bay gelding that’s easy to work around.  Likely best suited for a Western pleasure or western dressage career, he’ll go on the trails, travels well and is an all-around good guy!

SUGARLANE DOMINIQUE 
(Courage of Equinox x Sugarlane Masquerade) is a 2001 broodmare extraordinaire! She’s produced many foals for us by several different stallions and is currently bred to Townshend Rob The Wave for an early June 2017 foal. Easy breeder, excellent mother and nice to be around, but “Nique” is the low mare on the totem pole in our herd-style of management.  While she does just fine and we look out for her carefully, she would likely appreciate being part of a smaller barn with more individualized care than what we do here at Miner. She’s offered for sale reluctantly since we just love her babies and the current in utero foal is much anticipated!  Nique was born the year that Courage died and although he’s still available through frozen semen, daughters of this great stallion are getting harder to come by. $3000 this fall and you can get to know her over the winter while you prep for the new foal!
