Throughbreds to Morgans they are all so alike

Hi guys! I really like throughbreds and Morgans. Do you like any of them? Or how about a different breed?

I've seen nicer Morgans, probably because I go to all the A-rated shows though.

Morgans are the best

A morgan doesn't have to be at an A-rated show to be nice. :roll:

I agree, there are the modern Morgans with a lot of Standardbred or Thoroughbred blood in them and there are the old style Morgans like the Lippitt Morgans. I like your pics, I like the driving horse the most because of the posture.

If I am not mistaken the old Morgans around the civil war era and before were the general purpose horse of the Northarn state. Like the QH is today for the US. I do like the old style Morgans I have seen, even if they are only in photos. I am not so sure what I think of the other types of Morgan. I think the south had the Kentucky Saddler in the same role, the horse that became the American Saddlebred.

I don't hate TB's I just wish they would breed an animal with the joints and bone mass to handle the muscle they have, and with sound feet (Big Brown). I feel the same way about QH that are cutting bred.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.
