    Wow, the more things stay the same is right! What an interesting read. You’re appealing to my inner Morgan history nerd, Jeff. Thanks for sharing.

    I am reminded of this quote by well known Angus Cattle Breeder, Larry Leonhardt of Shoshone Angus (just replace the word cattle in the last sentence with “Morgan horses”).

    “For the most part, the economics of the registered industry thrives on motion, commotion, and promotion of difference in order to sell illusion that descends from confusion; to change the most of what we have into what we have the least. Then, when the least becomes the most, we change the most into the least of what we now have. We call these endless cycles progress and the cattle we are constantly changing are called purebreds.”
