From Calif. Horse Review, 1979 sired by Lippitt Gregory I was able to see Sam showing many times. He was handsome, correct & typey. At the Santa Barbara Medallion show one year, Mrs. Harrod rode him sidesaddle in the trail class. They were doing great until the obstacle where the rider had to dismount, walk away, return & mount. Sam waited until she was a few feet away, gave her a knowing look & then purposefully wandered off. She just laughed, collected him, got on & finished the class.
This blog is dedicated to the Old Morgan--either those who are long gone or those who are contemporary and aged. I will be posting photos of historical Morgans and my own aged horses. Visitors are welcome to submit photos, both historical horses and their own aged horses. Please make the photos of reasonable size and make sure they are compressed. Include as much information as possible on each photo. Use this email addy--
I've been a student of the horse all my life and an avid reader of all sorts of books. I got into Morgans in 1979, getting my first Morgans in 1980 and then becoming a breed historian with published articles in various publications. I still have Morgans, and cats.
