His sire, Upwey King Peavine, although registered as a Morgan, was actually a pure Saddlebred.
His dam, was Upwey Emerald Goldy, foaled 1930, bred in Illinois. Her sire, Emerald King 5491, was in actuality also a Saddlebred. The dam of Emerald Goldy was Canary Bird, registered with the A. T. R., the Standardbred registry.
Valley View King had only one registered get and comes down to today through some of the Teton/Tetonia prefixed Morgans.

Ray Hunt

Ray Hunt has passed on.
I never met him in person, only saw him on a few videos and read his book. But as many have, I have benefited from his teachings. Of far more importance, my horses and the horses of many others have benefited from his teachings for his work taught the human to better understand the horse and to be able to effectively communicate with the horse.
Ride on Ray--may your light shine on forever.

Sue Travelmore 05571

This mare was some of the excellent Old Vermont blood. Her dam, Lippitt Miss Nekomia, founded a family of tough using, enduring Morgans. Her sire Wysox had few registered progeny. His sire was a grandson of Billy Roberts and White River Morgan. His dam was by Bob Morgan and out of a mare who went back to Ethan Allen. Most of Wysox's ancestors are the same ones found behind the Lippitt Foundation Morgans.
