My horse is an ancient Morgan mare named Lizzie. I don't know her exact age, but the best guess based on vets, dentists, farriers and other horse people is that she's in her mid to late 30's. My old riding teacher bought Liz nearly 10 years ago and I immediately fell in love with her. I don't know much about her past, but I know she did saddleseat for years and lived as a "wild" horse with some other mares and a stallion. Liz was the only sane one and was taken out riding on the highway with 18 wheelers going by. That was her sale video.
I bought Lizzie nearly 4 years ago. Since then, I've discovered that she's older than I was told and that there isn't a Morgan registered under the name I was told (Chocolate Liz). Lizzie has a benign tumor and can't wear a saddle, so I only ride her bareback now. She's the most hyper horse I know and loves being ridden, especially on the trails. Liz is completely bombproof and as hyper as she is with me, I can put little kids on her and she'll walk around with them for hours.
I love Morgans! They're brilliant, hardworking and so determined to please "their person".
Here's my old girl!
