Eve Oakley up.
Eve was owner of Caven-Glo Morgans and bred many very good, traditional Morgans. I was privileged to know her when I first got into Morgans.

Peggy Jett P:ittenger up
He was a good sire & a versitile show & pleasure horse.
Peggy Pitenger was an author of a book on general horse care & breeding which I had in my high school age collection and a book about Morgans which I acquired later. The Morgan book, although old now, is still a very good one to have for Morgan history.
Dreamer was a 7/8th Lippitt. Her sire was full Lippitt Ember Ethan Dandy (Moro Hill Gay Ethan x Caven-Glo Lisa by Lippitt Moro Alert)
Her dam was Ember Serene, a 3/4 Lippitt whose sire was Ember Medallion (Moro Hill Medallion x Caven-Glo Lisa) and out of Rosemont Gay Bess (Moro Hill Gay Ethan x Kedron Betsy Ross).
I was there at Dreamer's birth. I was there at her passing. I was with her every one of her 31 years. It was too short of a time...
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.
