MARES

SPRING LAKE KATEFLY

(Yankees Anhingo x Yankees Pleasure)

1999 black mare (Ee aa), 100% Foundation

Katie is a 100% Foundation mare and is the product of my mother's main stallion and mare at the time (Yankee’s Anhingo and Yankee’s Pleasure). Katie moves with the grace and elegance of a royal queen. She has soft large eyes and the brains behind it that make her a Morgan. No wonder as she traces back to “Figure”, also known as Justin Morgan, 20 times in 11 generations, 143 times in the 12th generation and 335 times in the 13th generation!!!  Talk about OLD blood and UP close!

 

She is trained under saddle in Western, Dressage (both classical and Western) and Hunter and has consistently won ribbons in every class she has entered in- breed shows as well as open competition. As a 3 year old she was High Point Champion at the 2002 Spring Fling in New Jersey. Katie is the kind of mare that excels at any task. She loves a nice trail ride and has gone on many overnight excursions. Add to all this the fact that she has had 5 foals it is a telling tale of how wonderful versatile this Morgan blood is.  I was very happy when she blessed me with my young stallion MtnTop Whippoorwill Tanek, so much that I decided to keep him and make him my foundation stallion.  She is also half sibling through the same sire as our other stallion, Spring Lake Thistle. You can see  check Tanek and Thistle out on my Stallions page.   RIP my sweet girl I will miss you until the end of time.  See you at the Rainbow Bridge.

MTNTOP GOODNESS GRACIOUS

(Spring Lake Pallidin x Universal Selection)

2011 buckskin mare (Ee Aa Crcr), 100% Foundation

Well her name really says it all. Goodness Gracious is right. We call her Grace and she is that as well. Talk about perfection- from the get go this girl has it all. Fantastic laid back shoulder, nice short back, and a hip to die for. Add in that she is a buckskin and that is just the icing on this very yummy cake. Grace is brave and bold and has no worries. She is the most photogenic foal I have ever had and I swear there isn't a bad picture of her anywhere. She has helped me clean the stalls and add in shavings and the plastic bag is just another thing to her. This is the attitude she had as a foal.

 

Grace is growing into all that I could wish for in a horse.  She excels in her riding training.  Loves to trail ride.  I am pleased with how she handles all her lateral work etc. 

2016 - A fantastic year with Grace.  She went on several over night trail rides.  Did a great job at a Police clinic where she learned trust and even walked over fire for me. Than we went to 4 Western Dressage shows and showed in Intro and Basic classes (Training level for you classical dressage folks).  Our scores ranged from a 65% to a 75 % and we ended the year with Two All around Western Dressage Grand Champions and one Western Dressage Intro Grand Champion. We also received a Reserve Grand Champion year end award in Intro from the Woodbine series of shows. AND we also brought home the Grand Champion Year End award in BOTH Western Dressage Intro and Basic level with the Great Lakes Dressage club.  So very proud of my Grace girl. And a special thanks to my good friend Dawn Wagstaff for coming to my shows and being a fantastic reader and groom.  I could not have done all this without her.

2017 - WOW!!!  What a year for Grace and I.  We did some trail riding in and worked on moving up a level in Western Dressage with lots of shows.  We did very well at all our shows coming home with lots of blues and a couple Grand Champion and Reserve Grand Champions from the shows.  Our Year End was quite a Awesome as well.  We received Grand Champion in both Training and Level 1 with the Great Lakes Dressage club and got a lovely weekend tote bag and beautiful engraved plate.  Grand Champion in both Training and Level 1 pony for the Western Dressage Assoc of Michigan club receiving a BEAUTIFUL buckle and ribbons.  Reserve Grand Champion for the Woodbine show series.  And for the AMHA Open competition we received Grand Champion in Level 1 and Reserve Grand champion in Training.

2018 - FANTASTIC!!!  Another great year for Grace and I.  Winning Year End Champion in Western Dressage in the Great Lakes Dressage club for Western Dressage Open Level one and coming home with AMHA Open competition Year End Champion as well for Western Dressage Level one.  I feel truly blessed. 

Grace has always been fun below are links of her training as she has grown up.

MTNTOP MY PLEASURE

(MtnTop Whippoorwill Tanek x Tan War Bird)

2015 bay mare (Ee Aa ), 99.95% Foundation (standing picture at 2 years old)

To say that I am thrilled to have this mare back with us would be putting it lightly.  I am WAY beyond thrilled!! 

Pleasure is from a cross that I consider to have been one of my golden crosses.  And now I am able to have one back in my barn.  Pleasure is incredibly trained in both arena work, obstacles and trail and we intend to put her to task on all those.  She has become my husbands new riding horse after the loss of Dude.  And Pleasure is easily taking on the challenge and high standards Kurt had of Dude.

I am attaching lots of links to many of Pleasures training videos from foalhood through some riding.  Than please check back often as I will be adding to both her pictures and video libraries.

SPRING LAKE CALI'S BINGO aka BABY

(Spring Lake Thistle x Whippoorwill Calisto)

2016 chestnut mare (ee aa) , 100% Foundation

If you are a pedigree person hers will make you drool with an outstanding peidgree rich in some of the best lines in the Morgan bred just check out Baby’s pedigree.  UP close in her third generation you will find the wonderful Californio and fantastic Blackwood Correll plus a double Whippoorwill Duke in the 4th generation.  Through her sire also brings in Whippoorwill Duke in the 4th generation as well as Lippitt Sam.  She also has the great Trophy in her 4th, 5th and 7th generation.  Not only does she have the bloodlines she has the Morgan look and temperament. And just LOOK at that head her sire sure passes on a beautiful head.

 

This young mare is VERY laid back and easy going and will make a fantastic asset to my breeding program.  Just imagine her bred to MtnTop Whippoorwill Tanek!!!

 

It is tough getting free moving pictures of Baby as she is an in your pocket type of girl or being the lowest in the herd pecking order she is hidden behind others when they are out kicking up their heels.

Super excited to announce that Baby foaled a very handsome black colt with chrome on March 27th, the sire is  MtnTop Whippoorwill Tanek.   SOLD Congrats to Carol on her  new addition!!

COULEE BEND SILVER N GOLD aka ANNIE

(Unconventional X Coulee Bend Nirvana)

2016 palomino filly carrying the silver dapple gene, (eeAA CrcrNZ) 99.70% foundation

I am still pinching myself over what I have done.  While reaching out to Rainbow members to remind them to send in foal pictures for the club newsletter I came across this incredibly beautiful young mare that just screamed out at me.  I am NOT the type to buy foals and have not purchased one in over 9 years but the last one I did buy has become one of my best producers (I have kept two of her foals) and is a great riding mare.  So I am hoping that my gut on Annie here is just as great as when I bought Faith.

 

Not only is she a beautiful color and put together like a brick house in the future when I cross her with Tanek there will be a 50% chance that she will pass along her silver dapple gene that she got from her sire, Unconventional, and since Annie is homozygous for the agouti gene she can produce a silver dapple just like her sire.  

 

I have crossed into these bloodlines before crossings Taneks’ dam, Spring Lake Katefly, twice with Annies grandsire and most of my mares have VERY similar lines as Annies dam with the Triple S blood. Annie has fantastic crosses to Red Correl as well as Ulendon and many other greats.  I am super excited for her future here at MtnTop Morgans and I can’t thank Cindy and Lyle Dietz of Coulee Bend Morgans for helping make this incredible purchase.

This video was just one of the reason why I could not resist this young filly.  Video at 3 months old courtesy of The Dietzs. - click here to go to youtube.

 Easter Sunday was truly a blessed day as Annie blessed us with a beautiful bay filly.  BIG and beautiful.   SOLD in utero and Congrats to Tamara!  We like this cross so much we are breeding Annie back to Tanek for our only 2022 foal and she has checked safely in foal, due early March 2022. This 2022 foal has sold in utero Congrats to Ashley of MI!
