MTNTOP WHIPPOORWILL TANEK

(Whippoorwill Talisman X Spring Lake Katefly)

2005 black stallion (EE aa), 100% Foundation

This boy is the horse of my dreams and one of my Heart horses here at MtnTop Morgans. I was very blessed and grateful that Mary Jean Vasiloff of McCulloch Farms leased her wonderful stallion Whippoorwill Talisman to my mother and I. Breeding "Tali" to my favorite mare "Katie" produced this incredible 100% Foundation stallion. There is never any doubt that Tanek is a Morgan. And I knew this when he was less than three days old. So much so that I gelded and sold the stallion I had on my farm and I haven't been disappointed yet. Tanek has correct conformation, a wonderful head and his movement is elegant, efficient and exciting to watch. He has passed on his elegance to his foals and they are just as fantastic to watch as he is. He will add a great hip, short back and a fantastic shoulder to his offspring. Tanek has the most natural knee action and correct hock movement I have seen in a long time; never once has anything artificial been added to enhance his movements. Throw in a beautiful head and his foals scream Morgan.

 

Tanek traces back to "Figure" over 20 times in 12 generations, 188 times in the 13th generation and FAR more than double that number in the 14th. I didn’t count any further back than that. He goes back to Jubilee King through all of his grandparents with a nice touch of Lippitt and Flyhawk. And he traces to Winterset through Blackwood Correll. Every line of this guy is rich in old blood and very up close in his pedigree. Tanek comes from a long line of versatile Morgans with Champions in Reining, Driving, Dressage, Western pleasure, Hunter, Park and Endurance. He can most assuredly help produce versatile Morgan Champions in the future as well as loveable wonderful family horses.

 

I was very excited at his birth knowing I could pass along such wonderful quality Morgans in the future. The added surprise was when I had Tanek color tested and low and behold he came back E/E a/a. This means he is homozygous for black and can only produce black based foals- he will NEVER produce a chestnut foal.

 

Currently Tanek is not standing to the public. If you are interested in upcoming foals please contact.

STALLIONS

Thistle is a wonderful testament to my mother's breeding program and again I am SO thrilled that he will be here to help continue those lines. Thistle is proof of a long time breeding program that works. Rich in Jubilee King blood through both his sire and dam. Bring in multiple crosses to the great Trophy in the 3rd, 4th and 6th generation and toss in some Lippitt and Flyhawk and you cannot go wrong with him.

 

Thistle is built like the statue of Figure. And it is no wonder about that as he has many up close crosses to Figure “Justin Morgan” with 9 crosses in the 11th generation, 95 in the 12th generation and 141 crosses in the 13th generation.  Super hip and short back with an incredible shoulder. Put in a beautiful head with a wonderful eye and you would know he was a Morgan both coming and going. Thistle is a thinker and a lover. One of the sweetest easiest going stallions I have met to date.  

 

He has been trained to ride by me, Kristal Homoki, and children from all ages of 3 to 78 years old can and have ridden him.  Give this guy a puzzle and he will solve it; Rubik's cube should be no problem for him. His movement is elegant and he has a super temperament. Ask him to do something and he just does it. Top that all off with a showman attitude and he is a load of fun to be around and ride and train. Thistle is one that will go stand on his mounting block just to get your attention. He is also wonderful at retaining all his training after having a couple years off from riding my daughter was able to  hopped right back on and off.  Thistle was picking up his leads going as smooth as silk.  Here are a couple of links to riding videos of Thistle.
