I took these in Sept. 1980 when visiting Bab Verdugo who was Lippitt Gregory's owner at that time. Gregory was the only breeding progeny of Lippitt George Moro, shown yesterday. Gregory's dam was Lippitt Ethan Ann. He was a 1962 foal. He sired many good Morgans in Calif. but no full Lippitts.
(Lippitt Red Moro x Lippitt Georgia)
Retained by Knight, he had 3 Lippitt prefix foals:
Lippitt Gee Whiz in 1961; Lippitt Rebel in 1962; and Lippitt Gregory (x Lippitt Ethan Ann) in 1962. Knight died and in 1962, all his Morgans were sold in a dispersal sale. This photo shows Lippitt George Moro in 1966, owned by folks in PA. He had no further foals. Lippitt Gregory was sold to Calif. where he sired a bunch of good Morgans, but no full Lippitts.
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.
