After wrapping up an exciting and successful show season, we headed to Shipshewana, Indiana in November to participate in the exciting Superior Morgan Horse Sale, and more specifically, to watch and bid in the Superior Morgan Sweepstakes stallion service auction.
With record attendance and sale prices, this was a sale to end all sales and we were very fortunate to be the high bidders on the beautiful Dragonsmeade consignment, Dragonsmeade Soliloquy (Beethoven x Donatella, a full sister to Schiaparelli), a 2013 mare in foal to World Champion Dragonsmeade Axios.
And with several mares at home to shop stallions for, we were thrilled to be the winners of two significant services. HK Dickie Deville (SYP High Definition x MCS Norma Jean) will be the sire of two 2023 foals for us out of Little Black Dress GCH, via embryo transfer. Burkland High Octane (Dragonsmeade Axios x Stonecroft Flammable) will be bred to Dragonsmeade Soliloquy, the second of our sweepstakes entries for 2023.
We are already coming undone waiting for our 2022 foals to arrive by No Contest GCH, out of Little Black Dress GCH and MJS Noble Charm, both will be eligible to show in the very first Superior Morgan Sweepstakes event for a chance at over $60,000 in prize money to the winner.
