ago, in my research on bloodlines and considering my
interest in dressage and sport horse competition, I decided
that the Western Working family of Morgans with an emphasis
on old California bloodlines would be the qualities I wanted
in a Morgan.
My search for a stallion resulted in the purchase of Gay
Vaquero (Vaquero Mac X Gay Berta), a prepotent stallion
who stamped his excellent conformation and gentle nature on
his foals. He had a truly outstanding disposition and was
one of the kindest horses I’ve ever owned. He just never
had a bad day in his life. In addition to breeding, Vaquero
was used as an all around driving and riding horse as well
as being a western pleasure champion. Vaquero was rich in
the bloodlines of old California breeders Richard Sellman
and Roland Hill.
Some of his daughters now form the backbone of LBF’s
breeding program including LBF
Gay Enchantress and LBF
Gay Isabella and LBF
Gay Catalina. His granddaughters will continue to carry
his excellent qualities on through the coming generations.
I became interested in colorful Morgans in 1994, purchasing
the palomino mare Treasure
Brightsun (Primavera Regalo X Treasure Incantation). I
now have several colorful mares including Rocking
M Rosa Lita, LBF
Mona Lisa, her full sister Firefly,
LBF Cajun Queen,
Belle and LBF
Brook Farm produces from two to five Morgan foals a year,
breeding both to my own stallions, as well as to a variety
of outside stallions, utilizing Old California and Western
Those lines have given me the solid substance, excellent bone,
strong solid feet and quality that I look for in a Dressage
horse. In addition they naturally work off the rear end and
have good freedom in the shoulder. They have a temperament
quieter than some other bloodlines, making them eminently
suitable for the amateur owner. Most are at least 15 hands
resulting foals have been consistent in their quality and
correct Morgan conformation. Currently, LBF bred horses are
competing successfully in many venues including dressage,
endurance, competitive trail, CDE’s and competitive
driving. My current stallion, Triple S Wings of Wind (Triple
S Red Wind X Primavera Ramona) is a 15.2 hand stallion with
a very strong hind end, tremendous impulsion and the ability
to sit down on his hocks and pivot in an instant! Before coming
to Vermont, he was used to produce solid working ranch horses.
mares of Little Brook Farm are the cornerstone of my breeding
program. They are incredible…smart, classy and beautiful
inside and out. They have been dressage and carriage horses
and have worked hard, competing very successfully for many
years before becoming broodmares.
take a moment to look at the Horses Sold page to see some
examples of LBF bred horses and their accomplishments.
first priority when breeding foals will continue to be the
a Morgan horse with a good disposition over and above everything
else. In making breeding choices, I look at conformation and
movement in both the stallion and the mare, trying to match
weakness to strength and improve upon both. I strive to breed
a foal that
can be an all around using horse, one that can do a little
everything and be a pleasure to the owner.
Maintaining correct Morgan type is of great importance to
me. LBF bred horses are consistently both typey and athletic,
with each generation an improvement upon the last. After more
than 30 years of breeding Morgan horses, I am looking forward
to the third generation of my program.
Do consider an LBF foal if you are interested in a steady,
pleasant, intelligent, sound, good using Morgan horse!
thanks to every one who has chosen to view my site. I hope
that you all enjoy it as much as Shelley Dodd and I did creating
it. I would love to hear from you to know how you like it
and if you have any suggestions.
May your horses give you as much pleasure as mine do.
