BUYING MY FIRST HORSE LEARNING THINGS THE HARD WAY
IF I HAD OWNED THE BOOKS AND MAGAZINES I DO NOW AND HAD STUDIED THE VARIOUS BLOODLINES, I COULD HAVE SAVED MYSELF THE HEARTACHE I EXPERIENCED.

WHEN  I WENT TO MY FIRST LARGE MORGAN HORSE SHOW IN DETROIT, THE ALL MORGAN , I FOUND MY DREAM BLOODLINE. I DISCOVERED A HORSE THAT I FELL IN LOVE WITH HIS NAME WAS APPLEVALE DON LEE. I ASKED THE TRAINER THAT OWNED HIM, IF HE HAD ANY OF HIS OFFSPRING FOR SALE. HE SAID HE DIDN'T, BUT KNEW AN OUTSIDE MARE THAT APPLEVALE DON LEE BRED THAT HAD 2 HORSES THAT WERE FOR SALE. I WENT FROM THE SHOW TO TAKE A LOOK AT THEM.

THAT WAS THE FIRST TIME THAT I SAW THE STALLION THAT WON MY HEART. I BOUGHT HIM ON THE SPOT. HIS NAME WAS SPRINGTYME SEALECT, HE WAS ONLY A YEARLING AT THE TIME.

I OWNED HIM THE REST OF HIS LIFE, AT THE AGE OF THIRTY PLUS HE COULD STILL RUN AROUND THE FIELD SOUND MOVING LIKE A PARK HORSE , BAREFOOT WITH A 3 3/4 FOOT. HE WAS SUCH A SPECIAL HORSE AND I MISS HIM DEARLY....

SEALECT FOR A LONG TIME WAS MY ONLY RIDING HORSE. WE WENT EVERYWHERE TOGETHER. HE WON COUNTLESS RIBBONS AND TROPHYS FOR ME. I MISS THOSE TIMES, WHEN YOU COULD GO TO A HORSE SHOW AND HAVE FUN.

I BRED AND DECIDED TO KEEP HIS SON, SCENECREST SANGUINE IS THE IMAGE OF HIS SIRE SPRINGTYME SEALECT IN LOOKS, PERSONALITY & PRESENCE .

I FOUND OUT THAT EVERY HORSE I EVER LIKED FROM THAT DAY FORWARD HADCORNWALLIS AND THESE ABOVE HORSES IN THEIR  BACKGROUND, EXCEPT MY MARE (CHARRO) WHO CARRIES A NUMBER OF CROSSES TO JUBILEE KING, BUT LOOKS LIKE ULENDON. CORNWALLIS, LIKE JUSTIN MORGAN STAMPED HIS FOALS TO CARRY ON  HIS LIKENESS FOR GENERATIONS TO COME. I DO BELIEVE THAT SOMEDAY MORE PEOPLE ARE GOING TO REALIZE THE INPORTANCE OF THIS VERY SPECIAL HORSE. I KNOW SOME ALREADY DO.
PECOS AND HIS SON SEALECT OF WINDCREST EVEN TODAY SHOW THEIR LIKENESS IN HORSES THAT HAVE THEM IN THE BACKGROUND.


I HAVE TALKED TO SEVERAL LONG TIME BREEDERS.  THEY HAVE ALL TOLD ME OF THE BEAUTY, SEALECT OF WINDCREST AND PECOS HAD. THEY HAD NATURAL HIGH ACTION AND GREAT SPIRITED DISPOSITIONS.  THEY LOVED TO SHOW OFF AND EVEN TODAY YOU WILL SEE THIS PERSONALITY IN THE MODERN MORGAN.  WHEN I WENT TO THE GRAND NATIONAL MORGAN HORSE SHOW IN 1997, THEY BROUGHT OUT MANY OF THE PAST CHAMPIONS. MANY OF THESE WONDERFUL HORSES STILL PROCESSED THE SAME PAZAZ THAT THEY HAD 25 YEARS AGO. THEY CAME OUT SOUND AND TOOK YOUR BREATH AWAY.  APOLLO'S REFLECTION WAS SO SPECTACULAR THAT I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER HIM. SPOTLIGHTS ON THEM THEY SHOWED, LIKE I REMEMBER THEM YEARS AGO. I LATER STOPPED BY APOLLO'S REFLECTION'S STALL TO SEE A QUIET AND PLEASENT STALLION. WHO CAME UP AND LET ME PET HIM, AND ENJOYED EVERY MINUTE OF IT. I WOULD LIKE TO OWN ONE OF HIS FOALS, BUT SO FAR HAVEN'T FOUND ONE FOR SALE BRED TO A MARE THAT HAS THE SAME LINES.


IN 2000 I FOUND 2 LOVELY WEANLING FILLIES  THAT CARRY THE SAME LINES OF SANGUINE TO CARRY ON THE LINES I AM SO FOND OF.

THERE ARE SEVERAL DIFFERENT LINES THAT HAVE A SIMILAR LOOK, BUT WHEN A CROSS WORKS SO WELL WHY CHANGE IT. SOON EVERYONE WILL APPRECIATE THESE LINES AND NOT BLAME THEM FOR FAULTS THAT HAVE COME FROM THE OTHER LINES. IT IS EASY TO STATE A FACT WHEN SOMEONE DOES NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THESE LINES. IF EVERYONE WOULD RESEARCH THE DIFFERENT LINES AND TALK TO PEOPLE THAT ACTUAL SEEN THE VARIOUS FOUNDATION HORSES. SO MANY HAVE DIFFERENT IDEAS AND THEIR LIKES AND DISLIKES COME OUT.

SINCE EVERYONE DON'T LIKE THE SAME THING, YOU HAVE TO MAKE YOUR OWN DISCUSSION ON YOUR CHOICE. IF YOU LOOK AT PHOTOS TALK TO BREEDERS AND LOOK AT NOW DAY HORSES YOU WILL SEE WHAT I HAVE SEEN  THAT YOU NEED TO DO MORE THAN JUST GO OUT AND BUY A CHAMPION MORGAN HORSE THAT CAME FROM CHAMPIONS.
YOU NEED TO LOOK AT HORSES IN THEIR BACKGROUND YOU LIKE AND VISIT A LOT OF DIFFERENT FARMS UNTIL YOU SEE YOUR IDEA OF THE MORGAN HORSE. DON'T LET ANYONE EVERY TALK YOU INTO BELIEVING SOMETHING THAT YOU CAN SEE  IS WRONG. YOU WILL HAVE NOTHING BUT HEARTACHES LIKE I DID IN THE BEGINNING FASHIONS COME AND GO SO CHOSE WHAT YOU BELIEVE IN. SETTLE FOR NOTHING ELSE.

HERE ARE A FEW SCENECREST SANGUINE
PHOTOS THAT ARE ON A DIFFERENT PAGE, BUT THOUGHT THEY TIED INTO THIS ONE TOO.  SHOWING THE KIND OF STALLION I LOVE AND LOOK FOR. HE LOVES TO COME AND GET IN THE WAY OF THE CAMERA, EVERYTIME I TRY TO GET HIS PICTURE. IT IS VERY HARD TO GET A SIDE VIEW OF HIM, SINCE HE TURNS TOWARDS ME EVERYTIME I TRY.
MY 2 LOVELY FILLIES THAT I PURCHASED TO BREED TO MY STALLION SCENECREST SANGUINE ARE NOW OF BREEDING AGE. ONE MARE IS A TYPY BLACK MORGAN FILLY &THE OTHER IS A BAY FILLY WITH THE SAME BLOODLINES AS SANGUINE. THE LINES ARE CORNWALLIS-JUBILEE KING
LIPPITT-BEN DON ULENDON. SANGUINE HAS MOST OF THESE HORSES ON HIS PAPERS THE REST IN PEDIGREE.

sire of a beautiful filly
