Morgan stallions - advice please!

Which of these Morgan stallions do you like best? There is a black Morgan broodmare that I am seriously looking into buying, and would be breeding one of these guys to her. Can't show pics because she isn't mine yet.

If you have any other Morgan stallion suggestions, please post away! Looking at the old style foundation bred horses with good working lines [no modern show-type studs, please].

It really depends on your mare's confo--what will add to the bad traits and balance everything out. IMO the first, second, and fourth are the nicest-looking. There's something about the second that doesn't catch my eye confo-wise

Any but the Cremello.
I would stick with traditional color on a Morgan. I like the old style Lippit Morgan #4, and then 1 and 3. Can't tell the leg conformation and temperment from these photo's as that would be important also.

I REALLY like Baroncrest Nuggeteer. Everything about him just screams old blood morgan to me, and his lippit foundations are unbeatable. as others have said, number 1 comes next, but number 2, the cremello, is an absolute PASS

The third and fourth pictures are both of the same horse.

Thanks you guys! Here is Baroncrest Nuggeteer's website - Pure Gold Morgans ~ Lippitt Morgan Horses in Michigan - Old-Type Morgans . I think I'm going to email his owner and see if she can send me any more pictures, and pictures of his offspring.

On the second, I do agree. When I first saw his pictures, I thought he looked fine but once I started looking more closely... It's really hard to see his confo because of his color and the picture [standing in front of the trailer, blends in]. What things stand out to you in a negative way?

Remember, if anyone has any other suggestions please feel free to post them! :)
