Team 72 - Mary's Mares *
This is an update on my DD2014 herd. This coming year I will have the choice of three lovely Morgan mares. They are all about 14h 2” well-built horses. About the only visible difference is one is a very dark bay and the other two are black. In reality they are as different as could be.
My main ride will be Bluestem Lady Liberty, 7 yr old black Morgan mare. I got really lucky to get her as the breeder rarely sells her best horses. Libby rides and drives, has a great attitude, and abilities. Last year we did many hours of fun trail riding, including 2 CTRs.
My backup horse will be RG Prairie Sunset, 14 yr old bay Morgan mare. She has always been a keeper, but rarely have I had time for her. She has spent time as a lesson and Pony Club horse. Not that she complains Sunny likes being a pasture ornament. She is an excellent example of a Morgan mare with correct conformation, smarts, and that special mare attitude that she owns the place.
KTM Midnight Star (Kenna) is a 3 ½ yr old black gaited Morgan mare. She is my wildcard project this year. She was on the Utah range until last spring. She is smart and thinks she needs to take care of herself. Kenna is now at a trainer learning the details of being a trained horse. So far so good, she is settling in to work showing smooth gaits and a lovely loping canter.
