We have two Morgans, Brunk and Government lines.

Hadley our 16 year old, looks like and retains Flyhawks noticeable springy gait. He has Sentana, Panfield Orcland Leader among other great names on his papers. He is classic Morgan in conformation and is below 15 hands.

Pepe is 13 years old and taller at 15 hands. He shows more of the Saddlebred influence. Pepe gaits a single foot. He has Porvenir B Pepe top and bottom, Highland Gay Bonny, Windcrest Bob B, Triton Black Watch. He is a 'in your pocket' horse.

Both are tireless, surefooted and extremely easy keepers. Both are our Posse horses used for special events and crowd control. Of course they are seasoned trail horses.

Yep i have one, rowdy <3 they are versital, great horses. They do good in almost every horse riding sport (jumping, gymkhana, saddleseat, buggie, roadster,) just very good horses. Rwdy has a best personality, and all the morgan i have riden/met all have fare tempered personalitys. I used to show and work at a all morgan stable. i have never found a morgan to be meen, or agressize.

I had a Morgan/ QH pony. He was 18 and a complete jumping and dressage schoolmaster. Just what I needed at 10 years old. He was the best pony I had/have ever sat on. I miss Peter Pan :(. I also ride another Morgan/ QH cross named Sweet Pea. She's awesome and very even tempered.

Morgans are one of the most versatile breeds in the world. You ask 'em, and they will try their hardest to please you. And they usually suceed!

You need to make up your mind. Is it Morgan..part Morgan..part Friessian or Friesian (as you stated in your last post in the jumping forum).

Your horse is a grade horse with possible Morgan crossed with "something" else.

Every post has a different story and those "stories" were your downfall on HGS.

I am currently working with a Friesian/Morgan, but in the past have worked with many Morgans. If you want a breed that can do anything and are gentle but can be energetic when needed to be, that's the breed.

I've always found the history of the Morgan horse interesting. The National Museum of the Morgan Horse: The History of the Morgan Horse
