Sire of multitudes.
The Mosher Bros. were ranchers and bred Morgans for their ranch. They wanted a tough using horse & got that in the get of Condo.
He has one of the deepest hips seen in the breed. For some breeders today, he remains the ideal.
foaled 1951,in 1955 his name was changed to Paramount's Ambassador. He stood at stud for Paramount Morgans and sired many for Paramount & for others.
His breeder, Erwin Dwight Miller of Morrisville VT bred many good Morgans with the Miller's prefix. He did use the Saddlebred influenced sires at times but his mares often had interesting old lines. Betty Ross was one of those. Her sire was Mansfield but her dam was Berry's Bess x-04931, a mare for whom the X rule was created. Berry's Bess was bred by R. L. Berry & Sons of Sheffield VT and foaled in 1924. Her sire was Cecil I 6034 and her dam was Belle, foaled in 1904, unregistered, sired by Trefren Horse 3973. The second dam of Berry's Bess was also unregistered and sired by Houghton's Beauty 3969.

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.
