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.

I have always been fascinated by Morgans. I see them in magazines, books and shows and I love the way they carry themselves and boy are they gorgeous looking!

I have never worked with any before though...

how can anyone not like them? Morgans are by far one of the most trustworthy horse breeds in the world.

One of my neighbors breeds Morgans- she has some amazing horses. They are just gorgeous. I had one Morgan come through my rescue who was also stunning- so very smart and versatile!

Spent a whole hour today laying in a pasture, waiting for a sparkling vampire to show up. Alas, I woke up and looked over, only to find a mound of horse crap. Sigh.

There's only one way to fly, on the back of a horse.

LOL, I thought the same thing. Until this thread, I've never heard of people that didn't like Morgans

passion is when you put more energy into something than is required to do it. it is more than just enthusiasm or excitement, passion is ambition that is materialized into action to put as much heart, mind, body and soul into something as is possible. // <3 starlite - dream - lady - georgia

To be honest, I wasn't really a fan of Morgans until I met Kitty. That horse has taken me up the sides of mountains without slowing down. I have a new appreciation for them.
