As his name implies, Benediction is quite a blessing to Keepsake Stables! This wonderful stallion is a grandson of two celebrated Morgan horse sires:  Forevermore and Noble Flaire.  Ben's dam, HVK Noble Melody, is sired by Noble Flaire and out of MO Justa Wild Melody (by Treble's Willy Wild), one of the top producing broodmares of our time.  On the top side, Ben is sired by Shanghai, a Forevermore son and full brother to two multiple World Champions!  With Jubilee Regional and Jubilee Futurity Champion in-hand titles to his credit, Ben demonstrates that he is truly a product of his breeding!  We have high hopes for this gifted stallion who is blessed with extraordinary talent.

In the current economy and market, we took two years off from breeding, durng which time Ben continued his training at Merriehill Farm in Marengo, Illinois and Silver Maple Stables, Wright City, Missouri.  Ben is back home now and ready for the 2011 breeding season.  Nominated as a sire for the 2012 Morgan Weanling Gala, we have planned four (4) 2011 breedings to Ben.  We offer a lmited number of outside breedings to Ben in 2011. An introductory service fee of $1,500 includes eligibiity to the Jubillee Futurity, as well as the 2012 Weanling Gala.  Credit Card payments accepted via PayPal.  Contact Debi for more information
