For me, the love of horses began at the tender age of 3, when I
crawled on to what at that age I thought was a big horse. My sister’s friend had
tied her pony to the railing on our back porch and I crawled onto his broad back
and went for my first ride. In March of 1967 I bought my first Morgan, RA’s
Lincoln Knox. I had gone to buy an Arabian at the Salem Fair Ground but found it
had been sold out from under me. It was the best day of my life as I met Mable
Miller, a long time Morgan breeder, and she happened to have a young Morgan for
sale. “Charley” was a black son of Linn's Knox, out of Gay Leaf Dan-Leva, by
Dancin. Dancin was a Dapper Dan grandson and Gay Leaf Dan-Leva was a double Dapper
Dan bred mare. My first mare was an unregistered two year old that I registered
with my first unregistered prefix, Cameo, and her name was Cameo’s Delight. I
registered many horses using "Cameo" but when I tried to register the
prefix, I was told
that it had been registered too many times (by me) and that it could not be used.
That is how the "Oregon" prefix came to be.
I love the pretty head and the
western working blood lines. I have stayed with these blood lines and worked in
some of the lines of Chasley Superman, Beamington, Windcrest Music Man and
Trophy, as these horses were the athletes in their days as show horses. I also
love the Lippitt blood through Ellie Mason’s Marvelous Ideal. I have a strong
commitment to the Morgan breed and am a life time member of AMHA, Oregon
Horseman’s Association and the Jackson County Horsemen’s Association.
