The stone marking the grave of the famous American Saddlebred stallion Oklahoma Peavine

EAST OAK SQUARE is a shopping center on Grand River Street, East Lansing, Michigan that was formerly Northwinds Farm. Northwinds had been the home of the American Saddlebred OKLAHOMA PEAVINE, one of the best sire sons of Rex Peavine, and sire of A Sensation, My Golden Dawn, and Love Affair. OKLAHOMA PEAVINE died in 1950, and the grave was marked by the American Saddlebred Horse Association in 1965.

The farm was later sold and when developers began construction work, the marker stone was found and left in place in a landscaped plot in front of the strip mall. Many thanks to Kenneth Black for sending us this photo of the marker stone. -- A.P.
