    Welcome to the forum! I am new here as well and also a Morgan owner, your horse is beautiful! Do you know what his breeding is? I have owned Morgans since I was a teenager with a brief foray into the hunter's with a thoroughbred or two.

    He's out of Three Wishes :) What about you? Any modern or old breeding in your gelding? I'm so happy to meet another Morgan owner! Everyone my age seems to be into Warmbloods, OTTB's and Jumping/Eventing nowadays...

    Gorgeous horses. I also have a purebred Morgan, Isabel. You'll find a few Morgan lovers here (go to the "breed" section and search for "Morgan lovers"- I'd post the direct link but am on my phone...which makes it hard to search.)

    I love to learn Morgan pedigrees. What is yours like? I know my mare comes from Tara Farm stock, but one day I'd really love a Lippett Morgan.

    ETA: posted before seeing you already covered pedigree ;)

    Yeah, his sire is Three Wishes, and his Grandsire of his Dam's side is UC Ringmaster.
    He has a TON of Upway in him, as well as a good but of Waseekas and a little bit of Lippitt.

    Here's his pedigree if you're interested :)

    Hi Opal,

    My horse is a Lippitt bred Morgan. I owned his mother and had a few foals out of her. I am very interested in the older bloodlines, not just Lippitt. I am out of breeding at this point. My horse descends from the Royalton bloodlines. I will try to post pictures of his mom and siblings.

    Since you seem to have friends who are in to eventing, Morgans make wonderful event horses, the Lippitts seem to enjoy jumping :)
    We call them Leapin' Lippitts :)

    Ooo yeah, Lippitts are nice. They tend to be built stockier than some other strains which is nice if you want to do anything outside driving/hunter.

    I actually don't have any friends who ride. There aren't any other kids at my barn, nor anyone under 26 years old. As a result though, I often get the arena to myself and my trainer asks me to work all sorts of different horses for him, not to mention I broke to ride my first horse this summer:

    Who my trainer was originally selling unbroke for 400$ and now wants to sell for 5000$ :) With my constant presence at the barn, and no competition between other people my age, I've really been exposed to other opportunities I might have never gotten had I been at a more public barn.

    See, my mother is an Equestrian too, and used go groom for my trainer when she was in her 20's. The long times relationship means my trainer trusts the integrity of my mom, and thus my own integrity too-- a chance I'd never had at another barn.
    Just two weeks ago I did a Western Dressage demonstration with my trainer at the National Western Stock Show, and I am thankful every day for that opportunity.

    That was more answer than you were looking for, but no, I don't have any eventing friend XD Just people I've talked to over horse forums like this one :)

    Egrogan,

    There was a stallion at Tara farm I wanted to breed my Lippitt mare to, it was Apollo's Reflection. Is your horse related? "Out" breeding in the Lippitt community is frowned upon, but I never followed the rules. All foals I had were full Lippit, just breedings of my choice. I never got a chance to see what my mare would produce out of a non-Lippitt stallion.
