Our mares were carefully selected for their correct conformation, wonderful dispositions, and solid athleticism. Their carefully planned pedigrees bring a wealth of proven ability and genetic strength to their offspring when crossed to the strong old government bloodlines in La Cheval Knight Royale through the famous Morgan, General Gates, (foaled in 1894 and died in 1920).
As a lineal descendent of Justin Morgan 1, General Gates was the outstanding foundation sire of the US Cavalry Morgan horse dynasty (USDA Morgan Horse Farm). This family later became known and recognized as the Government family or Cavalry Morgan horse. It is quite remarkable that General Gate's influence in Knight's pedigree maintains a direct sire line on top and in his dam's sire line on the bottom. It is indeed very exciting that Knight's foals will descend in a remarkable 15 generations from the breed's foundation sire, Justin Morgan 1 (foaled in 1793 and died in 1820). To our knowledge there is no other government-bred Morgan stallion in existence today who carries such high percentages through General Gates to Justin Morgan 1 on the top and bottom of his pedigree. If you identify one, please let us know! Our preservation efforts of the old-government-bred Morgan are dependent on bringing in the strongest and best of this family to sustain it for future generations to love, enjoy, and adore!
Savannah is my personal mount and equine soul mate alongside Knight. She brings her size and strong Flyhawk bloodlines as a proven cross to the old government bloodlines of La Cheval Knight Royale. She moves effortlessly with grace and balance and she has an exceptional willing disposition with superior intelligence. Sensitive and caring in nature, we're excited that she will bring color and size to her foals who will carry highly esteemed and sought after bloodlines based on exceptional and proven quality.
Hazelrun Dominique (NR Mighty Mouse x Ragtime Easy Street)
"Minnie" is the newest member of the broodmare band and she is huge in quality and pedigree. Her foals by La Cheval Knight Royale will have sire lines of descent to General Gates on the top through the sire, and on the mare's sire line. The resulting offspring will possess high percentage old government breeding through a proven linebred pedigree dating back to 1908.
Their foals will have 4 lines (sire; 4th, 5th, dam; 6th and 7th generations) to the 4 time World Champion, UVM Promise. This cross combines high percentage old government breeding with a lovely amount of Brunk family breeding through the best known stallions Flyhawk (14 crosses) and Jubilee King (12 crosses). This Morgan family had a significant influence in the foundation of the Western Working Morgan as prized stock and performance horses.
Acquiring her creme gene from Chingadero's last recorded son, H-Saracen, she adds the potential of producing a smokey black, black, palomino or chestnut! No bay or buckskin is possible in this cross. Minnie stands just over 14.1H tall and we are expecting this cross to produce an outstanding foal that will reach 14.2H plus.
UVM Integrity (UVM Lash x UVM Mystic), 15H Pedigree / More Pictures / Her Show Record, her son's Show Record, and her 3 generation Ancestral Show Record
This is a cross out of our senior mare that I've dreamt about for a very long time! In fact, I was beginning to believe she would not be successfully bred so it was a very welcome surprise that we get to keep her on our Mare page! Her contribution to her family, the Morgan breed, and our program are immeasurable.
"Duchess'" sire, UVM Lash, and her dam, UVM Mystic, are well known as a "golden cross" that consistently produced Morgan horses that excelled in an out of the show ring. Integrity is full sister to UVM Equity and UVM Jubilant, notable stallions standing for the University of Vermont Morgan Horse Farm. Her full sister, UVM Unity, had an impressive show record, including two-time World Champion mare. Another full sister, UVM Loyalty, is the dam of Argosy. Argosy has an esteemed show record in the Pacific Northwest region, and UVM Loyalty has produced other superb Morgans for Heart's Delight Morgans of the Miner Institute. The notable list and success stories of her full and half siblings are numerous! She's also produced 4 foals and her son, UVM Sentinel, has been quite successful in the show ring.
