    Default Clarion 1980-2012 A Grand Morgan Gone...

    Yesterday I had to have my Clarion of Quietude put down. I have written a memorial which is on both my blogs
    OldMorgans.blogspot.com
    sagebeasties.blogspot.com
    I cried while writing those and really cannot say more right now.
    He was with me 29 years, nearly half my life. Where did that time go?...

    So sorry to hear about Clarion's passing. We are all diminished when an old Morgan leaves us. But your blog is a lovely tribute-- I'll be spending some time on it for sure. I grew up surrounded by beautiful old-school Morgans and always get a little misty-eyed when I see a good one in a happy home.

    the old style Morgans are such a treasure

    Clarion of Quietude

    This grand old stallion has a pedigree that is rare due to the fact that every horse on the fourth generation was registered in Registry Volume 5 or earlier; that volume ends with the year 1937. This is getting back to the old blood very quickly. With his sire line being that of Jubilee King and one other cross to that great stallion, Clarion has the true Lambert traits of magnificent correct three gaits, Baroque style, correct conformation, good looks, excellent sense and much willingness

    Godspeed Clarion. He was the epitome of a classic Morgan. Thank you for sharing such a lovely boy!

    I too will be spending time on your blog. I have a Beamington granddaughter who is in her mid-20's, they just don't make them like that anymore!

    Wonderful tribute! I loved reading about his personality and way of moving. I am a new Morgan owner, and I'm still learning about the breed. So far I'm very impressed with how smart and sweet she is, and love the quick and comfortable walk and trot.

    So, so very sorry about your loss.

    They are never with us long enough.

    What a handsome, classic guy. Definitely a loss for all true Morgan fans.

    Keep it up with your blog, I look at it all the time. You once posted our old guy on there and my mother was simply beside herself that her boy was on the web. I often direct people to it when I want them to see how awesome Morgans should be!!!

    Thanks all.
    He was such a quiet horse but his presence was huge.
