          Morgan's! I love them. Socrates is gorgeous and level headed. I like his sire too. We still have a part-bred part Morgan pony approved as North American Sport Pony/Canadian Sport Pony. Do you recall Whipporwill Duke? We bred my Lipizzaner/Arab mare to his son Lauralee Dawn Duke. Sham did everything asked of him superbly. Never underestimate that Morgan blood.
          Thanks for posting such enjoyable photos.

              she already has his life planned out for him, poor lad.... eventing, competitive trail, horse shows, dressage

              she is a distance runner. Where she normally does her training runs includes a bridle path .... she is planning on having Socrates to go out for runs with her. ... for her a normal training tun is about ten miles ... I guess he will need his own fitbit

                    her previous Prairie Hill Morgan was Prairie Hill Mulligan.... that horse would do anything she asked... she wanted him to look at a WPA concrete picnic table... he took it as oh you want me up there, OK.

                    I was watching her, I never saw him move, he was standing in front of the table next thing he was standing on top of it pretending to be a War Monument of some General on its beloved mount

                      In the foal video, I think he jumped that bigger tire effortlessly and that was no small jump for a little foal.

                      Horses with those teleporting skills can do anything.

                        I used to joke that my Morgan was part cat.

                              Prairie Hill breeds some really nice horses for sure! They're on my list for looking for my next endurance horse. Congrats!
