The "Foundation" Morgan bloodlines have NO modern Saddlebred outcrosses after 1930 and their male tail sireline must trace directly to Justin Morgan
Beginning in the 1930's, crossing Morgans with Saddlebreds was quite fashionable due to the popularity of the Saddlebred and the prestige they brought in the show ring. This practice resulted in Morgans which were less and less of classic Morgan type. More than 80% of living Morgans today have modern Saddlebred crosses.
The "foundation" Morgan bloodlines have NO modern Saddlebred outcrosses after 1930 and their male tail sireline must trace directly to Justin Morgan.
All of our Foundation Morgans trace back to Justin Morgan on all the lines of their pedigree , not just on the male sire line.
Our mission is to preserve and promote the Foundation Morgan so that we may continue to enjoy the original traits and characteristics that made this breed so special and unique.
It's important to note: If you are looking for a Foundation read a pedigree , find someone who can.
