These Morgans were in Chadron Neb. I once visited that area. Way back in the summer of 1969, my family was taking a vacation and we went to that area to meet relatives of my maternal grandmother. We stayed in Chadron & went also to Hay Springs & Valentine. I rode a horse in Valentine, which is right across the SD border from the Pine Ridge reservation. That entire area was a hotbed of Morgans. Likely the horse I rode was part Morgan. If only I knew then what I knew later; I could have dragged my family around to see Morgans!
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.
