I thought it was pretty cool to egt a Morgan that big too. Now a days they are breeding for height more, but for his day and age he was "huge".
Morgans are getting quite big these days, though I must say that I'm a fan of the "old style" Morgans, like someone else has said, the more bulldog type.
Same with the Quarter Horses. I think people have bred too much Thoroughbred into them and I prefer the looks of the Foundation horses.
Not to say that the tall Morgans aren't beautiful, of course. The show barn I worked at had a 2 year old that was pushing 17 hands, pitch black. Just a gorgeous horse.
