Photos of Old Morgans--old in an historical sense and also older horses of today.

Dapper Dolly 5/65 TMH
(Dapper Dan x Redonna Vermont)
had one foal
her dam was a full sister to Verdonna Vermont, who was the granddam of my first Morgan in 1980.
Billy Warne was at the Peters Canyon Ranch, several miles ride from where I was back when I was in High School. I sometimes rode my buckskin gelding of unknown breeding over there. I remember this mare in her stall in the barn but did not know she was a Morgan. Her name stayed in my mind over the next decades and I was ever so surprised to find this photo in the early 1980's when I started buying & going thru the old issues.
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.
