Happy 26th Birthday to Dreamer--My First Morgan Baby!

And just how can my first Morgan baby be 26! Where has the time gone to.
This photo was taken back in the early 1990's or thereabouts.

We had gotten seriously interested in Morgans in 1979 and in 1980 we bought our first two Morgans, both mares. In 1982, we bred both of them. In April, 1983, Dave's mare, Serene, was giving signs of impending birth so I called Dave at work and told him to hustle home. He got there in time to see the last half of the birth of the dark brown filly whose name I knew very quickly--Dream Fire.
She was a lovely foal and grew up to be a lovely mare.

Dave has moved on and is now my ex, although we remain friends. Dreamer still lives here with me. Her back has dropped some but she still has no white hairs on her face and requires little in the way of special feeding. Her last vet check, Fall 2008, showed her to be in good health with good teeth. I am happy to see her each day and hope for many more years of happy days.

Happy birthday dreamer! What a beautiful girl!

The condition of the oldies definitely reflects their care. Nice job! So glad she is one of the so few that has a forever home.

Thank you. These Morgans make it easy. Not a one of my seniors has any problems.
