(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.

(Spring Lake Pallidin x Universal Selection)

2011 buckskin mare (Ee Aa Crcr), 100% Foundation, PSSM1 negative

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 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 Thistle x Whippoorwill Calisto)

2016 chestnut mare (ee aa), 100% Foundation, PSSM1 negative

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.

Baby has been bred back to MtnTop Whippoorwill Tanek for a 2024 foal, guaranteed black.  This foal may or may not be available but if you are interested please contact me.

This is an incredible exciting part for me.  BUT I am only one very tiny piece of this big picture puzzle.  I will be mentioning names of those that I have my piece of involvement with but will allow them to each tell their part, if they so choose to.  The big picture in all of the things happening belongs to the vision that Wendy LeGate of OGO Morgans has to getting many Morgan breeders to work together. And I feel very blessed that she included me in this big picture project. 

Most people also know that I don’t stand my boys to the public.  I have numerous reasons for this BUT most don’t know that I would stand to approved mares.  It isn’t that I think they are better than other stallions I just want to make sure that they have quality foals on the ground not quantity of foals. 

NOW for the super exciting part on my end.  Wendy also found some almost lost to the breed Morgans and one of those was Gold Moscato .  She bred Sara to Moscato and I get that foal!!!  PRAY PRAY PRAY for a filly please everyone because when this “filly” bred to Tanek in the future it will be such OLD OLD OLD young bloodlines.  Gold Moscato is currently with The Painters of Triple S Morgans if you are interested in breeding to Moscato please contact Nathan.

What's in the future for Sara?  She will be bred to  Tanek, of course,  for a 2025 foal and look at the pedigree of that cross.  I know I am putting the cart before the horse BUT honestly, I think that is what us breeders do LOL. Then Sara will go on to continue making babies as long as God is willing with Ellen Quertermous of Grapevine Morgans or back to Wendy to cross back with Moscato. BUT, of course she can always stay here and continue being bred to Tanek that would not hurt my feelings AT all.  Thank you again Wendy for leasing Sara to me she is truly a TREASURE!!
