HISTORY OF THE MORGAN( REQUESTED BY KOKO)

In the coming years, the offspring of these strong, willing, able light horses grew along with the young nation that was building itself upon hard work and determination. In the hands of American colonists, Morgans cleared rugged Vermont mountainsides and converted them into rich farmland. But they weren't mere workhorses, Morgans had the style and elegance to capture the admiration of any city horseman. While some Morgans earned their keep on the farm others were in high demand to become smart roadsters for Boston and New York financiers. When harness racing reached its heyday in the 1800s, the World's Fastest Trotting Stallion was Ethan Allen 50, old Justin's handsome great-grandson.
As America grew so did the feats of the Morgan. New England men answered the call of gold and headed for California on Morgans. In the Civil War, the famed Vermont Cavalry was mounted on Morgan horses. Not only did the Union's General Sheridan ride his Morgan Rienzi, Stonewall Jackson rode his Morgan, 'Little Sorrel,' for the Confederacy as well! In the Indian Wars, the only survivor in the Battle of the little Big Horn was Keogh's Morgan-bred horse Comanche. If the pathways of history are paved with the bones of the
horse, surely America's are paved by Morgans.


Question of the day: Do you blanket your horses during the wintertime?
I have never blanketed my horses and probably never will, but I know it makes a different if your horses are clipped.

Well, my goal for Dakota was to get 600 votes during the month of October, and thanks to you and all my other wonderfull HC friends he has already exceded his goal. I am hoping to see the big number 1,000 soon but I need your help so please come vote for my little guy!
Thanks so much for all your support!
