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.
