I'm a little bit biased too. I own a Canadian horse (the ancestor of the Morgan horse) they're essentially draft morgans - the exact same brain. I worked with many other Morgans, a couple of the old style and one of the new style. They are all fantastic. I love their brains. The one that was the new style was my least favorite IMO, may have just been her but she was much flightier and I felt like I was riding a caterpillar she was so wriggly underneath me - but I'm typically a draft rider :P

They are such fast learners and generally level headed but plenty of fire! My Canadian has the typical high action you'd think of for a Morgan too - awesome breed!

My Canadian:




Some Morgans I found online new and old style (not mine just for reference)






New style Morgans remind me of those fish that look fat from the side - but disappear when you look at them from the front xD They're very narrow

First picture I'd say Morgan/Appy X. Second picture QH X.

Just a note for safety sake - it's very dangerous to lunge a horse with a chain. Chains should be used in conjunction with a normal lead rope (with some exceptions) and not used in activity. The horse's nose is full of nerve endings and especially with increased gait, the chain can rub painfully. If the person lunging has to correct the horse at all, the effect is of course multiplied. If the horse puts its head down or somehow gets away from the handler and steps on the line... yikes.
I don't know why they even make lunge lines with chains. Makes me shudder! (Having said that, some bits do that too..!)

This is off topic, sorry, but PunksTank I'd love to learn more about the Canadian, they are gorgeous! And I totally agree, the "new style" Morgans are not as wide as the foundation Morgans. You should post over in the Morgan thread about them, I've never really known much about them.

I would say he is a Morgan/QH or a full Morgan.

As far as the old style Morgans, I own one. He is currently 2 1/2 Months old. He is the one in my avatar. He is 98% foundation bred and almost full Lippett morgan. His dam is a pure Lippett and she is definetly not petite. She is very solid and wide. I love the old style Morgans!
