I have had at least 29 different Morgans in my life time and some are better than others. I used to have a Morgan mare name Mist ,who was only 13 years old when she died, but she was one of the best cart and trail horses I ever had. Her trot my have been bumpy but when she cantered it felt like I was floating. Her son,Hawk, is an OK cart horse, still in training, and is a wonderful trail horse. All the Morgans that I have had were all treated like members of my family. Mist saved my nieces life by putting herself in front of a large bull mastiff cross( she received many scars from that and the dog was soon shot by one of my neighbors), after that Mist was given a place of honor in my family. When she became ill with a virus she fought it until it broke her spirit, no matter how much pain she was in she would hold her beautiful head high and proud. I have also loved the wonderful and spirited Morgans.
