Morgans are gaited and there is a gaited Morgan Horse registry. Back in the Old Days, the Singlefoot was the gait typically associated with a Morgan. http://www.msfha.com/
Singlefoot means there is a point in time, during the intermediate gait, that only one hoof is on the ground
Here's a bit of history on the gaited Morgans. The Gaited Morgan Horse - The Gaited Horse Magazine
Just as happened with the Appaloosas, people tried very hard to breed the gait out of Morgans because it just didn't suit them
Happily there are folks trying to save that gait, thus the MSFHA link above
I also prefer the "Old Model" Morgans, but I prefer the Old Model Arabs and Tennessee Walkers too - lol lol
I like to see a lot of thick bone and heavy hooves. If they look like a China Doll with the tiny hooves to match ------ well------ that can't be good over their entire life span, especially if they end up being trail horses later in life
The Tennessee Walker in my avatar was 16 when that picture was taken. It's obvious he is a "solid built" horse. He is so solid, I once had a man ask me how I "taught that Quarter Horse to gait" - lol lol lol We've been buds since he was coming three; he is now 21 and has equine metabolic syndrome, so his hard trail riding days ended a few years ago.
