Information on Morgan Pedigree

I’m researching the pedigree and family history of the 1988 bay Morgan mare Plum Haven Leilani as part of a birthday present for her new owner. I’m looking particularly for pictures, stories, and show records about her family. I was hoping you might be able to help me find out more about some of the horses in her pedigree or point me toward some resources.
I haven’t been able to find any information on this mare’s sire and dam. Any information at all on Petalbrook Augustus #75883 (1979 bay stallion) and Goldenaire Anastacia #72880 (chestnut mare) would be really appreciated.
These are some of the other horses in her five generation pedigree that I am seeking formation on:

    I would start with the AMHA website. They have a historical photo archive that may be helpful. Go to -> About the Morgan -> Morgan Photo Archive. Many of the names you mention above are popular horses and should have photos there.

    Another good place to look is If you see a horse in a pedigree with a * by it’s name that means there’s a photo available for that horse. If you click on that horse’s name then go to Maintenance -> Edit Information you should be able to copy/paste the link in Picture URL into your address bar and then right click on the picture to save it.

    Thanks for the tips. I’ve pretty much exhausted the resources available in those two places. I’m hoping to find some pictures of the less famous horses and I’d like to know more about any of their show careers.

    There’s a yahoo chat group called morgan_memoirs. There’s rarely any discussion on it, but if you ask about specific horses sometimes you can get some good stories, even pictures. It might be worth trying.
