Our Horses

HJA Sundust

“Jimmy” is undoubtedly one of a kind, and is one of the biggest reasons we have started Figment Morgans.  As Jen’s main competition partner, he has excelled at everything he has been asked to do – eventing, dressage, working hunters, fox hunting, western dressage!…you name it, Jimmy will do it with energy, a sense of humor, and opinions (he is usually right).

Perhaps more importantly, he’s also the greatest friend.   In our mind, Jimmy is the ideal partner for competition and companionship, and we hope we are able to produce horses with a fraction of his versatility and kindness.

Jimmy and Jen will be focusing on dressage for the upcoming show season, but he and Katie might just have to get his working hunter game back on!

Most of all, he is healthy, happy and a very special friend (not to mention a wonderful traveling companion).  We are beyond proud, and very excited to see what the 2022 season brings for us!

Blitzen Golden Legacy

“Clara” came to us in January of 2018 after searching for a weanling filly.  Our friend Caylyn Walker at Blitzen Morgans had just the girl!

Clara is a smart, talented mare who enjoys a variety of jobs.  She has traveled to Morgan shows, open dressage shows, and has participated in the Future Event Horse series.  She had a nice 2021 season, with trips to Southern States Morgan, as well as several dressage shows.  In fact, she was the 2021 AMHA Open Competition Intro Dressage champion!  

In April of 2022, Clara foaled an outstanding filly by Amberfields EmbossedNGold!  We are thrilled with our beautiful new filly, and once weaned, Clara will return to work and will be back to showing in 2023.

Kings Nineth Knight

“Arthur” comes to us courtesy of our friend Kate Holloway, who generously gave him to us as a companion and light riding horse.  Arthur is a good buddy to have around!  He will always make you smile with his silly sense of humor, BUT it also turns out that we struck gold with this wonderful, sweet boy.  He is “Coach Arthur!”  Or, depending on the day, “Grumpy Uncle Arthur.”  There is no one better suited to bring along sassy babies and teach them the ways of the world (but also love on them and protect them when they need it, too).  We are so fortunate to have this wonderful boy to love.

Coachman’s Tsunami

“Sue” is the realization of a dream for Jen (and we think Shawn is quite smitten at this point, too!).  With over 15 years of experience with the Morgan horse, it’s time for us to commit to reproducing qualities we firmly believe in and love so much in a horse.  Jen has long admired Sue’s offspring, having had the pleasure of meeting or staying in touch with almost all of her foals.  Magically, she is now here with us at Figment Farm, thanks to our friends at Blitzen Morgans!   She is a wonderful, loving mare and an incredible mother.  We are so proud to have her here with us.

Battersea Zipper

Miss Zipper is one special girl…so special, in fact, that she convinced Jen to learn HER sport (driving) and consequently, Jen works hard in her driving lessons – and is loving it!  Zipper is a mare that loves her job, and she is so thrilled to be back to work as a driving horse.  She gave us a wonderful filly by Ensigns Majestic Heir this past May, Figment Fiona.  Zipper had a great 2021 Dressage at Devon with many nice ribbons, and we are very much looking forward to her first year as a CDE horse in 2022.

Figment Ready Player One

“Artemis” is a dream come true for Figment Farm!  She is our first foal born  here on the farm.  Artemis is a 2020 grulla filly by RG Denmark’s Justa Farmer, out of our Coachman’s Tsunami.  

She is big, strong, healthy, and full of energy!  Artemis is very independent, and loves exploring as much as possible.  She loves every new task, learns quickly, and loves being with people. Artemis went to Dressage at Devon in 2021, and did well with the atmosphere at her first show!

We are so thrilled with this filly.  She certainly is all Morgan in her personality, friendliness, and bold attitude!

BDS Silhouette’s Prestige

Jen met “Sheldon” in the fall of 2021, when he came for carriage driving school.  One of those horses who oozes presence, he drew her eye right away, and of course she thought, “Morgan?…Statesman?”  Right on both counts.  They visited often over the months when Sheldon was in training, and when he needed some new digs, the answer was absolutely yes!!  Sheldon joined the Figment family in March of 2022, and no one was shocked when he and Jimmy became fast friends.

By Statesman’s Silhouette, his movement and presence comes very naturally, and his big personality fits right in!  We can’t wait for our adventures with this fun guy.

Figment Firefly

“Fly” is one of those horses that worms their way into your heart.  This kind little colt did not have an easy start to life, suffering a fractured elbow during birth.  At such a young age, we were luckily able to give him a shot, and the wonderful vets at Virginia Tech’s Equine Medical Center were able to help.  Fly took this all in stride, dealt with the stall rest, poking and prodding, and still kept his sweet nature.

Despite all of this, the orthopedic vets have high hopes that he will have a career, which is good news given his beautiful movement and fantastic disposition!  We look forward to watching him mature, and hope that he will be our junior stallion some day. 

Figment Fiona

This little girl’s arrival was so eagerly anticipated!  Her dam, Battersea Zipper, is one of Jen’s very favorite horses…and of course she was due right when it was time for Southern States.  Jen and Katie took horses to Raleigh and hoped Zipper might wait.  NOPE!  She foaled around 3am on the first day of the show, but luckily Shawn called and Jen got to watch her dream filly stand and nurse.

Fiona is a yearling now, and clearly the combination of Zipper and Ensigns Majestic Heir was truly excellent.  Fiona has a fantastic disposition, the right amount of sass, and an outstanding walk and canter.  We are very excited for her future!
