Fairy at 18 months, November 27, 2011
BNWD Scandalous Affair x BR AC Texas Blonde
Cremello filly, foaled May 7, 2010
Fairy is beautiful filly with gorgeous movement and a wonderful floating trot. She is extremely intelligent, sometimes so much so that it's challenging to stay one step ahead of her! She is a very sensible, level-headed filly and amazing fun to train. In typical Morgan fashion, she loves food and is doing very well with clicker training.

Pepper on March 6, 2011, at age 4 with RJ Rapelje
Rogue's Thunderhawk x BR AC Isabella
Palomino filly, foaled March 3, 2007
Pepper is an eye-catching dark palomino with a refined head, lots of mane and tail, tons of athleticism and a super-sweet disposition. Her sire, Rogue's Thunderhawk, has 100% Funquest bloodlines. She's extremely sweet and is broke to ride but “unfinished”. She had 90+ days with a trainer (natural horsemanship) in 2011 & has done extremely well on several trail rides since then. She does the basics (walk, trot, canter and back), and we're working on smoothing things out, neck-reining, flexing, & just getting miles under saddle. She has nice ground manners, ties, loads & trailers easily, loves baths, stands for the farrier (she is barefoot), and is current on shots & worming. Pepper should have a mature height of under 15 hands.

Shania on October 10, 2010, with Rod Smith
Sinbads Merlin x Singing Winds Cherokee
Black mare, foaled April 29, 1996
Shania is the apple of her owner's eye. A lively mare, she is quick on her feet and turns on a dime, and always eager to go faster. She was professionally trained for competitive reining, but thoroughly enjoys her life of leisure as a pleasure riding horse. Shania's long legs and easy pace let her cover miles comfortably; she is a tireless trail horse and appears to be gaited. Shania is NOT for sale.

Rogue on March 6, 2011, with Nik Rapelje
Rogue's Thunderhawk x Singing Winds Shania
Brown gelding, foaled January 11, 2007
At four years old, Rogue is becoming an outstanding riding horse, with fluid movement and an incredible soft feel. He is intelligent, athletic, and eager to please. He is nearly a carbon copy of his wonderful dam, and is learning to be a good trail-riding partner for her. His sire, Rogue's Thunderhawk, has 100% Funquest breeding, and Rogue shows the versatility and classic Morgan qualities that those bloodlines are known for. Rogue is a sweet, loving boy who loves to hug and nuzzle. He has a mischievous streak and a sense of humor, and loves to tickle RJ's neck with his nose and blow in his ear.

Noremac Mohawk x Inglemist Airadaisy
Palomino mare, foaled May 7, 2001
Bella is a beautiful palomino mare with a calm demeanor. She loves being the center of attention -- she’s pretty and she knows it! Bella is patient and quiet, and has been ridden on trails with beginner riders. She walks, trots, canters, backs, steps over obstacles, and responds to voice commands. Bella has not had any advanced training, but has done many miles of trails. She is happiest when she is being praised and fussed over, and she loves treats. Bella likes to taste-test everything, and sorts everything into three categories: she can eat it, it might eat her, or she doesn't care.
Bella is an excellent horse but her gaits are much slower than our other riding horses, and she simply wasn't getting much attention. In October 2011, we were thrilled that she went to a wonderful new home with Dreams Come True Morgan Farm in nearby Bulverde. She is now known as "Izzie" and is adored by their riding students. She is thriving with their attention and love; we couldn't have asked for a more perfect home for her, and we're close enough to visit.
