    Default Morgan peeps, are Pecos bloodlines magical?

    Because I just saw a discussion where someone basically stated that no horse of his get can possibly be conformationally flawed (particularly in association to ewe necks, slab shoulders, or long-backed). I am amazed at this. Why aren't all horses related to this stallion if he's so magical at fixing conformation flaws?

    I need one of these magikal ponies with superior self-aware DNA that knows to ignore any "faulty" information from the mare.

    I think my Majikal Morgan Pony is related to him, however my pony's conformation is a little less than majikal (although still good).

    All Morgans are magical.

    Perfectly conformed, no.
    magical, yes

    I knew a lot of Oakwood Adam (Pecos son) offspring & grandkids, as well as others from same generation removed from Pecos . They were all pretty awesome, from an all around perspective. Could do anything, but I don't think that makes them unique in Morgandom

    Here is Pecos from AMHA archives, in case someone is interested.

    Two of his sons that were both prolific sires (among many):

    If everyone of his line was perfect, that would certainly be a crapload of perfect horses. I think we would have heard.

    I agree

    No Pecos in my mare's bloodlines but I've heard very good things about him when it comes to sport breeding.
    You have to have experiences to gain experience.

    I had a Pecos grandson, great horse and great jumper but conformationally not so much. Parrot mouth and super narrow body, like 2d horse
