Your Information Station for
Color in the Morgan Breed
Welcome to the Morgan Colors website! Founded in September of 2001 by Nancy Castle,
Morgan Colors is an email
discussion list with more than
700 members, united by our interest in colorful Morgans. We also now have a Facebook discussion group. We've seen a lot of "color history" being made
on our groups over the years, and this website is a way to share that
information, all in one place.
Although most people are aware that the Morgan
Horse can be bay, brown, chestnut and black, they may not know that Morgans can be
more colorful! On these pages you will see that there are
silver dapple, roan, palomino, buckskin, dun, grulla, cremello, perlino, smoky
cream, gray, flaxen, sabino, splash, and other rare colorful Morgans!
In the menu to the left are links to pages of pictures of Morgans in each of the various colors and modifiers present in our breed.
Educational information about the genetics of each color, as well as a list of
bloodline sources for them, can also be found on each page.
American Morgan Horse Historical Photo Archive, we present a "colorful" version here
for those who wish to trace the color lines in their horse's pedigrees. The core
of this information was taken from my 2005 AMHA Convention presentation on
Morgan Color and History. I had many requests to put this information on a CD,
book or website, so here it is! Be sure and check the links page for websites of colorful Morgan
breeders as well as other educational
sites about Morgans and the colors they come in.
I hope you find Morgan Colors useful as a reference and research tool.
Suggestions are welcome. Check back for regular updates!
