|Picture taken January 2013
A long time ago, I was told that a Morgan's head was not his best or most important
feature, the action was. "One does not ride the head" I was told. What the trainer forgot to remember is that it
is the head that greets you every day; it is the head that wears a western bridle so beautifully; it is the head that carriage
judges first notice when approaching; and it is the head that people most remember when looking to purchase a horse. Arabian
breeders have dedicated their entire breed to the head.
My search for a beautiful
head on my foals was found in the signature of Ken-Mar Winston. Long known in Ohio as producing large foals
with beautiful heads, I found it to be true when crossed with a variety of bloodlines. Yes, I DO RIDE THE HEAD. I see it when
I ride, flexed with ears forward; I see it when I drive, elegantly going forward in the bridle; and I see it when I go out
to the barn. I may not ride the head Mr. Trainer, but I sure do like a beautiful head to greet me each day.
On Thanksgiving Day 2013 I went out to take pictures of Winston's children. The photos show
that the children have the promised signature head. They also have Winston's signature hocks. "Motion"
pictures can be seen throughout the web-site. Oh, yes, before I forget, that beautiful head contains an intelligence far beyond
their years, a combination sought after in sport horses.
