HISTORY OF THE MORGAN

Today, Morgans have few wildernesses to conquer or wars to win, but they still accomplish great deeds. They are loved and revered as dynamite performers in Morgan shows across the country, and as loyal, sensible mounts on America's beautiful trails and pathways; they are treasured by mounted police squads and therapeutic riding programs for their intelligence, soundness, and gentleness; they are winning awards in driving, dressage, reining and cutting competitions against horses bred specifically for these jobs; and no matter what they may be doing or the tack they wear, knowledgeable horsemen see them and know, 'That's a Morgan!'
A bit of the hard-working, determined Morgan legend is with us whenever a Morgan carries a saddle-weary cowhand down a Montana mountain, pulls a carriage around a grueling obstacle course in record time, quietly carries children along a wooded path, or flashes around show rings with a style that causes spectators to cheer. The Morgan, our country's first breed of light horse, is as much a part of America today as it was two centuries ago.'
The Morgan legend has also spread around the world. Morgan owners and dubs can be found in Canada, England, Germany, Italy, France, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and South America. The beauty, intelligence, and willing personality of the Morgan will win you over too!


Yesterday I was leading Sierra around outside of her pasture, when all of a sudden my aunt started up the lawn mower nearby. Sierra reared and as she was coming down her hoof hit my forehead. It didnt hurt very much so I didnt think very much about it, until I saw blood dripping down onto my jacket. I cleaned it up and put a bandaid on it and thought it was fine. Later my mom saw that I had a bandaid on my forehead, and asked me to take it off so she could see what happened. She took one look at it and said, you are getting stitches. By then the docters office was already closed so we had to go to the emergency room. Needless to say it was not a very enjoyable experience. Sierra has been around lawn mowers all summer,and has never gotten too spooked about them so I'm not sure what got into her. Well this blog is getting a bit too long so I dont think I will have a question today. Tommorow I will either be blogging on Friesans or Gypsy Vanners.

Have a good one, and dont forget to vote for Dakota so that he can be your HOTM!
Maria, Dakota N the girls
