Mr & Mrs Rex took a cross country trip and came back with their foundation mares, of which this was one. After Mr. Rex passed away, his widow, Freida, married Frank Waer, taking the Rex Morgans with her. Thus, began the famous Waer Morgans.
The following 3 posts are an article from the June 1948 issue of The Morgan Horse. If the print is too small to read for you, put your cursor over a section of the print & click your mouse. That should take it too its own page with larger print (it did for me, anyways). The author of this article was famous as a trainer for the movie industry. It is too bad that none of the Morgans pictured with the article were noted for names.
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.
