Me too, tinyliny.

OP, is this horse papered Morgan or did the previous owner say he was?

My morgan draft X parked! I loved seeing him do that. He also bowed. He was so great. I miss him. He was a nut. More dog than horse. LOL

Sierrams & tinilinny, don't worry I know how 'off' of a Morgan he looks like lol. He is simply one of the more refined ones out there. It's really not that uncommon nowadays, but for back when he was bred it was definitely a bit rarer. But yes he is indeed papered. I have his papers and also his DNA testing results. He is indeed a Morgan ;)

Here is a picture of his sire Merriehill Chicagoan, as you can see they have a lot in common in regards to looks.

No problem! Don't' worry, I had my questions when I first saw him too lol.

You're not crazy....


"Today, more than 60%, or even much higher, of horses with Morgan registration papers carry large amounts of recent Saddlebred blood, both "legally" and illegally from back-of-the-barn secret crosses to Saddlebreds, and also to Hackneys, both cob sized Hackney ponies and horse sized Hackneys.

This was done to cater to the Saddlebred look for the show ring.

The true Morgans have been driven from their own shows and are essentially a minority in their own breed, with over 60% of the horses with "Morgan" registration papers carrying the later Saddlebred crosses."
