    The Morgan horse is one of the most awe-inspiring horse breeds in the world, due to their wit, durability and power. I have always been fascinated by Morgans, because while they are well loved and popular, they often have been blocked from the limelight by breeds such as the American Quarter Horse, and thus, have an air of mystery that still surrounds them. Not much has been known about the early years of Justin Morgan and his horse Figure, the founding stallion of the Morgan horse breed.

Morgan horse lovers in particular owe Mr. Tatro special thanks for his admirable efforts.
