How Do You Define Legacy?
Legacy is what a stallion consistently passes down to his get whether it be good or bad
traits. When one considers a breeding stallion, one must adhere to the Morgan ideal. As more and more horses are
showcased by trainers favoring particular bloodlines, the gene pool diminishes. The eventual result is the good
traits are often cancelled out by the inherent genetic problems known to that particular line. Eventually a mare owner must
step back and reassess the Morgan ideal; ultimately one has to go to the source and remember...
The old bloodines are the outcross that keeps our breed honest; unfortunately the old lines are being lost. Here at R'surene
Morgan Farm we are perpetuating the old lines with consistant results. Below are pictures taken last Thanksgiving which
demonstrate the powerful "stamp" of the old lines upon the modern bloodlines thereby producing a superior sport
horse. Such is Winston's legacy to his get: a bolt upright neck rising out of the back, not forward of the withers; a well
laid back shoulder; strong flat cannon bones; beautiful head with tiny tipped-in ears, above average height, and
a chest that holds the heart of a winner.
