If I hadn't vacationed in MI and found my QH gelding, Oberon, this is the Morgan horse I would have bought for my girls. He is still for sale and most likely further along in his training. He was green when we rode him, but so gentle, so sweet. I have linked him HERE and he is also on dreamhorse come. His asking price is $4,500.00 obo. I considered keeping Oberon for myself and buying this guy for my girls, but made the hard choice of wanting a taller horse and a part Friesian for myself.
Below is an 1888 drawing of a Morgan horse - I'd say the above fellow is true to type...

Another series of horse books I loved were "Billy and Blaze". What horse books did you love as a child?
