but this is probably one of my favorites. I took it 2 summers ago at MSA, while waiting for the results of the medal final. The riders are both from my barn, and ended up 1-2 that year (the grey pony was first, the bay second).

He is a pure Lippitt* Morgan, and will always be my model Morgan Stallion. Big (for a Morgan, especially a Lippitt), dark, dark bay (almost black), and 100% STALLION!
I had the pleasure of accompanying his owner when she trailered him from Arizona to Vermont to stand stud for a season. This was before the days of A.I., so I guess that dates me quite a bit, doesn't it?
*Lippitts are the bloodline with the fewest outcrosses to other breeds and ZERO Saddlebred blood. They make wonderful outcrosses to other Morgan bloodlines, and are very cool horses in their own right. Can you tell I am BIASED??? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

or at least, one of mine. I have a really cute pic of a welsh pony sniffing noses with a begging corgi at a show... anyway this one was taken as my bio pic for my a cappella group in college (the horse is Remington, used to be a schoolie at Goucher, and one of my favorites) [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]
