I love riding my mare, Maggie, a bay Morgan Horse. She loves the hills and forests as much as I do. I also love riding on our Harley and we have gone to N and S rim of Grand Canyon on it, as well as lots of closer rides. I have 5 grandgirls and 1 grandson, who are mostly horse nutz like me.
Do you have any pets?
Yes, 1 pitbull, Xena, and 1 Aussie, Speck. They love horses, too. Oh, I can't forget my pond fish!!
Hi again. There are some great resources describing the connection between the two breeds. There is an article linked on the web-page that I gave below and it has some references in it as well. I rode a Morgan mare when I was little and some aspects of my current horse's personality (and appearance) remind me of her. I do love Canadians - they are quite fun and handsome horses. :)
Hi! I noticed comments in your 'Fans of the Morgan Horse' group that discussed the breeds that went into the development of the Morgan Horse. If this is a topic that interests you, you may want to look into the relationship between Canadian Horses and Morgans. A number of Canadian Horse mares went into the early development of the Morgan breed. DNA comparison has shown the two breeds to be closely related, and if one looks at horses of each breed, strong similarities can be seen:
Oh you are both too kind, but thank you! I have a very natural seat, trainers have told me, I suppose I agre since riding is like walikng to me, but I would'nt call myself much beyond an average rider. I actually feel that most of my riding career is still ahead of me. I mean I guess I'm a good Jumper, but I dont currently have a horse that jumps more than 3.5 - 4 ft. (I have a 5 yo and 4 yo just about ready to start jumping over 2 ft , If I was awesome I would show more, and show off my horses more. My riding/training successes have mostly been at home.
Anyways I dont know if you saw the pics of my foals but I posted two of LOBA and one of SILVER
I tried to upload 10, but only those 3 went through, the others said there was an error.
Later this morning I'm going to take FERDINAND, my 4 yo Stallion out for some exercise & will be posting pictures afterward.
There are only 3 Dunskins in my whole slide show, And my Dunskin Mare is'nt on there. The one labeled "Dun + Creme" is so perfect.
I've accumulated a huge collection of examples of the two dilutions, but I find it hard to come by Dunskin (BuckskinDun), Dunalino, And Grullos with one addittional modifier (like creme or chmpagne).
I had started creating Albums for my horses seperately (3 grullos, a dunskin, a bay and a chestnut, But I took them all down last week. I'm going to put them back soon (that was a waste of upload time)
