What an Affair it is! I know this is all MORGANS and everything but, please be happy for me just this once! PLEASE! I just got a call from a friend and they need another rider for the Paso performance and…. I get toooo ride! And not only any Paso but, a Fino mare. Fun….

Frozen Semen

Hi Guy’s and Gal’s, Me again! I am looking into breeding my mare this year. I found a stallion I would like to breed to but, he only comes through frozen semen. The lady that owns the stallion told me that while this stallion has had a conception rate of 99% all the time breeding…

Morgans in Saddlebreds

I may come across as an idiot – I apologize, but I am curious. The Morgan horse played a role in the development of the Saddlebred horse, right? What traits from the Morgan did the Saddlebred horse inherit? I know that this is a broad question, but I wonder if when a Morgan horse has some…

NYSHBA show

The New York State Horse Breeders Association hosts a show in May that has Morgan classes. I was wondering if anyone has been to the show and could tell me what its like, I recently bought a Morgan and I am looking to show her a little this summer and this show is fairly close…
