The Morgans of Little Brook Farm are a result
of 35 years of breeding correct, versatile and
good using horses with sound bodies and
minds for use by the amateur owner.

The emphasis has always been on breeding
sport Morgan horses - breeding horses
who are a pleasure to own for the
“backyard” owner; as well as
breeding many excellent horses
for those owners who wish to
compete at higher levels.

LBF Morgan horses have been highly successful at dressage, distance, trail riding, driving & ranch use. They are noted for their beauty, correct con- formation, gentle dispositions, all around usefulness, willing attitudes and long lasting soundness.

All LBF stallions and the majority of mares are old
style Foundation Morgans.

This has been a very long awaited spring and summer. 
Beginning with "The Gathering" in Lyme Ct at Whippoorwill Farm. And what a gathering it was. Wonderful to see old friends and new friends. One of my many highlights was finally meeting JoJohnson who I have considered to be a friend for many, many years but we had never met.
Picking Jo up at Bradley Airport was just the beginning. It was as though we had known each other forever. We drove to my place in Vermont for the night. Worked a horse that afternoon and the next morning  and then headed South to Mary Jean's. So many people came. It was so wonderful to see all of you. Sunday Jo and I headed North again. We spent four days working with my horses ranging in ages of 1 -10 years old. What fun we had. Every evening we shared cooking. Food was great and plentiful. Jo taught us so much, I am still trying to work it all out in my mind.

The interesting part of all of this is that this week end I spent three days in a clinic with Francois Lemaire De Ruffieu. Every thing he taught me was what Jo was teaching us in the Western and Natural Horsemanship method. With Francois we did it in dressage. I have never worked the shoulders and the hind end so much with any other dressage instructor. Francois was fabulous and I am going back in August for three days and hopefully in September too.

I am trying to make up for the five months that I was unable to ride during the winter and have been trying to work three horses a day. That may not sound like a lot but it is after you have taken care of 28 horses AM & PM.

My lovely mare Firefly has found a wonderful home for a while with an older lady, 80 years old. She looks 60 and seems to be that too. When This lady canon longer ride then Firefly will come back to me. I am so pleased that after all that Firefly and I have done together she can now give pleasure to some one else.

On another note. Baptiste Blue Hawaii, Levi, was collected and frozen. I have plenty of semen to use at a later date, Levi is now a gelding and will go on to do more than he could have as a stallion with me. I also feel he is a lot happier.

Happy Trails every one.
