Thank you for visiting my website. I have a lot of news and good progress to report. It was  a stellar start to December 2013 with three horses sold before the first week of this month.

Congratulations to Douglas Shanton Babb of Knoxville Tennessee for his purchase of two of our young Holsteiners, both bred by my late mother, Virginia A Klumpp.

Doug purchased Zolia a 2007 Holsteiner mare by Linaro Hol. By Landgraf Elite Hol.Out of Nolia MMP Hol. By Merano Elite Hol. Zolia  2007 Holsteiner mare by Linaro Hol. By Landgraf Elite Hol.Out of Nolia MMP Hol. By Merano Elite Hol.

Doug as an accomplished trainer and I have no doubt that he will finish these mares off beautifully. Look for him in the pre-greens this season with Zolia.

Also sold this week Zestabel 2007 Holsteiner mare by Conifer Hol out of Nouvellerose WPN by Consul Elite WPN. Thank you to Mark Stopford of Hardford Farm in Occalla, Fla for his hard work and training.

It’s hard for me to believe that 4 years ago I was looking at a barn filled with 20 horses left to me by my mother. Today I have 5 horses that belong to me and a barn filled with a great group of boarders. If you are looking for a barn please come for a visit. I have plenty of room for you.

Legal Eagle has come back to Keelona

LegleEagle comes back to Keelona August, 2011

I am excited to post that LegalEagle has come back to Keelona after an incredible career in the dressage ring with Renee O’Leary.

LegalEagle, 840003 233 1213 002000, stem P008, In the main registry of The American Holsteiner Association. By Love Affair out of my Merano Mare, Lisel MM Hol.

In July of this year Renee contacted me about Eagle and asked if I would like to have him back at Keelona. My first thought was no. I didn’t know Eagle, he had been injured which resulted had lymphangitis in his back right leg. Renee convinced me to come and see him and go out on a ride with him. Well I fell in love with Eagle and his gentle nature. He is a 17.1 giant and is as quiet and calm as they come. I brought him home that day.  This is a wonderful homecoming for Eagle. He was bred and born here and his dam, Lisel, is here on the farm as well. My Mother, Virginia Klumpp,  needed to sell him in 2003 and Renee Oleary of Old Raptor Farm in Louisa, VA purchased him.  Terri Impson took him on for training and had an incredible career with him. As a four year old in 2004 Eagle was named the USDF Materiale Horse of The Year for 4-5 Year old colts and geldings with a median score of 81.6% He also won The Born In The USA award for the Material at Dressage at Devon.

Eagle will have a new job with me as my Fox Hunter. He loves the job and is happy to be out in the field and out of the ring.
Thank you to Renee for sending him back to the farm. I know that My mother would be very happy with this turn of events.

Welcome to Keelona Farm

Legal Eagle wins Dressage at Devon 2004

Hi and thanks for checking out Keelona’s web site or more correctly blog! I have decided to dive into the blog format and bypass the traditional website. Hope that this works and I hope that you will let me know.

With this blog I am planning to expand into the many different levels of the farm:

I am going to have the horses for sale – very important and the fuel that keeps the fire burning. Check out the horses for sale under the “Pages” menu.

Rentals and boarding – I have two houses here and an incredible horse facility that are ready to move in. It’s a big farm.

My Mother,  Virginia Ann Klumpp – This will be my opportunity to share her life, photographs, art, and incredible equine knowledge through her many writings. She was an amazing Horsewoman and deserves a true tribute.

Information on the horses in general – News, winnings, what they are doing

And lastly, My Pages,  Lucia Evans-Morse –  where I can share my design work, family, animals, art, and my general thoughts and ideas.

Please check back and stick with me. It might be another interesting ride.
