#1 - Morgan
#2 - TW
#3 - RMHA*

*this breed may move up if my Rocky works out like I hope he does!
I've just now had time to watch the videos (sorry, have been down with an ankle injury) and the second video nearly brought tears to my eyes…. The beautiful yet elusive Morgans I loved as a girl. Big butts, thick necks and short backed horses with the heart and courage of a lion, yet gentle as kittens.
Although, at 3:22 was a thinner one with stacked shoes and smaller hindquarters and again at 3:31. Besides my mare, those were the only other Morgans around my area in the 70’s and I was not a fan. Unfortunately I was around those Morgans long enough to see even more changes… longer hooves, more shoes, and disappearing heft and presence.

Ok, so maybe not as many *bleeps* as you, but not a spring chicken either.

Oh how I wished there had been internet back then so I could have seen and tracked more of the Lippett style Morgans out there.
The one that looked like your Uncle’s stud is just beautiful and the horse at the very end, at 6:15, looked so much like mine. Thank you for the videos, I really enjoyed them.

I’ve only had my RMH 6 months now, so I’m looking forward to seeing how versatile he can be in the coming years. And I aree with your revised list, also like you I am waiting to be impressed by the Mountain breeds before I‘ll move them up.

Curlies also have a gaited line & I think there is a breeder of them in Texas. The gaited horse I have now is a Paso Fino,she does all gaits & loves to jump also.
I looked into the price tag on a few gaited Morgans .....and my check book ran and hid from me!

Curlies were of interest to me also. I knew some non-gaited ones as a youngster and they were very impressive horses. Couln't find anything I didn't like about them, and since my son used to be allergic to horses they were the first breed I checked into upon fully returning to horses.

Pasos are nice too!

Curlies exist in some of the Fox Trotter bloodlines. My friend has a curly Fox Trotter.
