This was the winning group for Get of Sire at a So. Calif. show. All 3 went on to be good producing dams.
Here is a pic of me in the early 70's on Eve Oakley's Caven-Glo Sail On.
Sail On was a 1966 son of Caven-Glo Red Sails out of Poppy Ashmore
(Lippitt Ash, Jubilee's Amber). Red Sails was by Dorian Ashmore out of
Eve's beautiful foundation mare, Jubilee's Gloria.
Sail On was eventually sold by Eve, gelded, and found some years later
in unhappy circumstances. He was rescued by friends and returned to Eve,
where I believe he lived out his remaining days.
During the 70s, I had the enormous good fortune to ride for Eve at her
Sylmar, CA farm and to know such amazing Morgans as Cavendish, CG Red
Sails, Legend or CG, CG Challenger, Pandora, Poppy Ashmore, Sunseri and

The famous photo of Dr. Parks & Miss Nekomia on one of the VT 100 Mile Rides.
I've heard old-timers say that he did not smoke that pipe in the early miles of the ride. I've also heard it said that one reason the mare did so well on the rides was that she was too "Bull-headed" to let another horse in front of her. The latter statement from someone who loved & bred her descendents.

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.
