I just recently, about 2 years ago, became a Morgan fan. My good friend gave me his Buckskin Morgan Cross (3/4 Morgan, 1/4 Welsh Cob) Filly b/c she was to small for him. I LOVE her, best horse I have ever owned. She was suitable for beginner riders only a few months after I started her, but still has the get up and go for advanced riders. I think she could do just about anything.

Here are some pictures of her last year:

I don't have a full Morgan, just a half. I was looking to breed my TB for an offspring that I could use for dressage and jumping. I wanted something that would have a calmer disposition and lots of athleticism. So, I bred my mare to a foundation bred stallion OM Jacob Ash (first pic). My mare Lady (Soy La Una, second pic) I like to think of as the old style TB's. In these pics she is 20yrs. Old and Pistol (third pic and avatar) is 15 months old, 14.3hands. Pistol will be two on April 1st and is now 15.2 hands. I will start his saddle work either this December 2010 or maybe wait until he is 3. We'll see how he is maturing. I figure he's going to live to be at least 30yrs. Old, so there's no rush. As a yearling he would load, lead, tie, pony, great for the farrier, cross water, wooden bridges and motorcycles and ATV's no problem. I've been just laying over his back (bareback) and I think he thinks that I have cracked up. Can't figure why I wish to do that or he's wondering when does he get to lay across my back. Loves to have his nose kissed. You can hardly clean his corral with him in it, cause he's got to be right there.

A horse is the projection of peoples' views about themselves--strong, powerful, beautiful--and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existance.

my friend at the barn owns a morgan. She is super cute, dark brown with one white sock but boy, is she something else. My friend rode her for over an hour one day last weekend but she still had so much energy it was hard to hold her back. If she's not going fast, she's not happy and she shows it with her stubborness to work.

A friend of mine is into Morgans and got the one she has now when her last one died a few years ago... at FIFTY-TWO YEARS OLD!!!!! She said he was just amazing until about the last year, when the spark went out of his eye. She misses him terribly. Her current one is a sweetie and a really good horse.

Here she is with her current boy, Ace.

He has such a beautiful head and neck!

There is a morgan at the barn that I use to board at, jet black, looks just like a friesian. Great jumper, and is totally drool worthy!

I love the sport horse bred morgans, though I do enjoy watching the saddleseat bred morgans strut their stuff.

There was one, way back when. :)

Morgans are fantastic horses. We've got serveral mares and some Morab crosses from them and my Arabian stallion.

This is Snowdrift.
