Our Mares

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 produce foals rich in the blood of their most famous ancestors that trace to the US Government Morgan Horse Farm. Formed under the Quartermaster of the US Army, the US Remount Service (US Cavalry) had military planners that were committed to establishing a national stable of military horses that were superior in intelligence, strength, stamina and soundness than those of any other nation. Genetically strong to the foundation horses of this prestigious program (later placed under the direction of the University of Vermont), it's equally amazing that Knight passes to his foals the sire line on top to the program's foundation Morgan stallion, General Gates. The offspring from our Morgan mares will possess high percentage old government breeding through a proven line bred pedigree dating back to 1908 and beyond through the most notable descendants of the foundation Morgan stallion, General Gates, (foaled in 1894 and died in 1920).

General Gates was the outstanding foundation sire of the US Cavalry Morgan horse dynasty that later became known and recognized as the Government family or the Cavalry Morgan horse. It is quite remarkable that General Gate's influence in Knight's pedigree maintains a sire line on top (tail-mail) and in his dam's line on the bottom (tail-female) . It is indeed very exciting that Knight's foals descend in a remarkable 15 generations to the breed's foundation sire, Justin Morgan 1 (foaled in 1793 and died in 1820). To our knowledge there are no other government-bred Morgan stallions in existence today that carry such high percentages through General Gates to Justin Morgan 1 on the top and bottom of their pedigrees. If you know of any please let us know! As stewards of this historic bloodline, our preservation efforts are dependent on the best representatives of this family in order to sustain it for future generations to enjoy!

Bests Savannah (Be-sts Top Kat x OMM Ojos Azules) 2011 Palomino, 15.3H   Pedigree / Video / Video 2 / Video 3More pictures  

Savannah is my personal mount and equine soul mate alongside Knight. She brings her size and strong Flyhawk (15) and Jubilee King (19) lines as a proven cross to the old government bloodlines of La Cheval Knight Royale. She moves effortlessly with grace, balance, and elegance. Savannah has an exceptional willing disposition, quiet nature and superior intelligence that she passes on to her foals.  Sensitive and caring in nature, she brings color and size to her foals who carry highly esteemed bloodlines and quality.  See her first foal here. "Bishop" is the first known cream gene carrying descendant of UVM Abington, who unfortunately passed away in 2021.


Hazelrun Dominique (NR Mighty Mouse x Ragtime Easy Street) 2016 Smoky black, 14.2H  More pictures

Her 1/2 brother (same sire), R-Two Black Jack, was Grand National and World Champion in Reining in 2011!

"Minnie" is a Smoky black that is huge in quality and pedigree. She's balanced in proportion and she exhibits tremendous extension at the trot, with immense power working forward off her hocks. Watch the video above and I'm sure you'll agree that she moves effortlessly!

Her foals by La Cheval Knight Royale: The famous 4 time World Champion, UVM Promise is found on 4 lines (3S x 4s x 6D x 5d) of the pedigree! To maintain genetic vigor, Brunk family breeding through the best known stallions, Flyhawk (14 crosses) and Jubilee King (12 crosses) complement this carefully planned pedigree that is known to produce prized stock and performance horses through the Western Working Morgan family. A pedigree full of ancestors that were repeatedly proven over the test of time, the foal's historic value is certainly very exciting and coincides with the expected superior quality of this superb cross.

Acquiring her creme gene from Chingadero's last recorded son, H-Saracen, Minnie adds the potential of producing a smokey black, black, palomino or chestnut! No bay or buckskin is possible in this cross. Minnie is 14.2H tall and her first foal in this cross can be seen here.


Moonshine - grade overo KY Saddle Horse

This lovely non-gaited Kentucky Saddle Horse was rescued from a kill pen in N TX but she began her unfortunate journey in KY! After we met her the decision to bring her to our home became no big decision at all. She's very kind, intelligent, athletic and super sweet. We have found no explanation for her to have ended up in such an unfortunate situation! We've been building her weight back up slowly and she is doing remarkable well. Moonshine is a family trail horse and she may be bred to Knight for a very classy part-Morgan pinto. We will be pursuing Pinto Registration for this lovely gal in the near future. If you are interested in a quality part-Morgan Pinto, you may want to follow her future in the breeding shed. We are delighted to have rescued this fine filly and make her a part of our equine family.
