The Mares of Mossrose Morgans

 
 

Mossrose Ysabella

2006 Smoky Cream Mare ~ 100% Foundation Bloodlines

AMHA No. 171998 ~ Coat Color Tested Eeaa
 
 
We never planned on a smoky cream, but here she is!  Foaled May 21, 2006, Bella was an arrival to look forward to. This cross had been in my mind for quite some time, so her birth was a celebration.

Bella's sire is the well known reiner and Breyer model, Montana Harvest  Her mother was the lovely Whippoorwill Salus, a Californio daughter.   Bella has an in-your-pocket personality.  Her stride at the walk and trot is long and reaching. She has a wonderful working canter. In our humble opinion, her conformation is outstanding.  She is well trained for western riding and is a pleasant mare to work with!  She has a no muss, no fuss attitude toward most everything, but is by no means dull.  She tries hard to be obedient, mannerly and to do anything asked of her. She is, without a doubt, the smoothest horse at all three gaits that I have ever ridden. From the beginning she has always worked very naturally off of her hindquarters. She was worked on cattle one summer, but reining may be her true calling. Bella is, plain and simple, an all around excellent working mare. Bella is currently one of our main broodmares. Crossed with Whippoorwill Newmoon, she has produced three offspring with all three being stallion quality colts. They are the 2 buckskins, Mossrose Moon Shadow and Mossrose Golden Ridge and the smoky black, Mossrose Iron River. Bella, following in her dam's footsteps, is an excellent mother.

Whippoorwill Capella

2010 Black Mare ~ 100% Foundation Bloodlines

AMHA Registered ~ Coat Color Tested Eeaa
 
 
Capella was born on our farm, but bred by Mary Jean Vasiloff of Whippoorwill Morgans in Old Lyme, Connecticut. Mary Jean loved her and named her Capella, which is the brightest star in the constellation Auriga, the sixth brghtest in the night sky and the third brightest in the Northern celestial hemisphere. However, with the dispersal of the Whippoorwill Morgans herd, Mary Jean had to offer Capella for sale. I just couldn't let her leave our farm, so we bought her from Mary Jean. Capella has the most curious, fun loving personality and is into everything, just like her dam! Additionally, she has acquired the added grace and elegance of her dam, the beautiful black Whippoorill Halo who is sired by Sereno Dandy Vermont and out of the mortgage lifter mare, Whippoorwill Corona. Capella has the athletic ability we so value of her national champion reiner sire, Whippoorwill Newmoon. Capella is a goldmine of rare old blood, so will be retained to hopefully be one of our using horses and possibly raise a couple foals.
 
Like all of our Morgans, Capella has an excellent work ethic and tries hard to please. We expect Capella to reach 15H at maturity. She is currently Jane's main riding horse.

Mossrose Dandy Jewel

2011 Seal Brown Mare ~ 100% Foundation Bloodlines

AMHA No. 183851 ~ Coat Color Tested EeAta
 
 
Jewel is still young, but is probably the most lovely and most elegant mare on the farm. She has the beautiful seal brown color, striking features and athletic ability of her national champion reiner sire, Whippoorwill Newmoon. She also has acquired the lovely grace and elegance of her dam, the beautiful black Whippoorill Halo who is sired by Sereno Dandy Vermont and out of the mortgage lifter mare, Whippoorwill Corona. Jewel is a goldmine of rare old blood, so will be trained to ride or drive and then retained to hopefully be one of our main broodmares in the future.
 
Like all of our Morgans, Jewel has an excellent work ethic and tries hard to please. We expect Jewel to reach 15.1H at maturity.

Mossrose Fiesta Gold

2013 Palomino Mare ~ 100% Foundation Bloodlines

AMHA No. 186832 ~ Coat Color Tested eeaa
 
 
I wish I could come up with the appropriate words and some perfect pictures to describe Fiesta. She is simply amazing. The one thing we noticed about her right away is that she is something special and she knows it! From the beginning we have gotten a big kick out of watching her play. I have never seen a foal with so much expression in her ability. She could play the dressage role quite easily with big, lofty gaits and that added suspension. But if you turn your head for an instant and then look back, she will be running circles full tilt with her head and neck lowered and her ears back like an elite cowhorse. It is just the most brilliant sight to witness. At 3 months old Fiesta was doing her dressage and cowhorse moves as well as easily jumping logs and piles of brush while going uphill in her pasture. Now did we see the eventing and hunter/jumper side of this mare coming through as well?! I'm quite sure this girl is tops in ability!
 
Fiesta is a sweet mare that loves scratches and hugs. She always comes up for attention. She is a sooty palomino with a good supply of dapples. Another thing that stands out about Fiesta is her size. We have never had a foal as tall as this one was. Her dam is 15.1H and her sire just a bit over 15H. Fiesta was 15.1H as a three year old and I wouldn't be surprised to see this mare mature in the 15.2H to 16H range.

Red Rose Stardancer

2003 Palomino Mare ~ 100% Foundation Bloodlines

AMHA No. 161413 ~ Coat Color Tested ee/Aa
 
  Dancer is a stunning and exquisite Morgan mare. She stands an impressive 15.3H, big and bold, built sturdy and strong with 3 phenomenal gaits.  We have really enjoyed Dancer over the years.  She was easy to train and a hard worker. Jane has ridden her in cattle sorting practices and she is up for the task. She gets right down on her hindquarters and can spin around quick as a cat. Her perfect balance of lightness and boldness make her a top performance horse. John has used her for a ranch rodeo series and is working toward doing more heading off of her.

Stardancer has a long story of horse hunting behind her!  In the fall of 1998, we went to look at some horses for sale in Montana.  Since the owners wouldn't sell the mare we really liked, we ended up buying a yearling black filly out of the mare and by Tru-West Pure Prairiesmoke.  She was a filly we were really looking forward to having in our herd.  It was a sad day when we had to put this filly down in February of 1999 from a pasture accident.

Later in 2001, the original H-Saracen mare we were interested in, Mon Tana Dancer, came up for sale.  The timing was wrong for us and someone else bought her right away.  I contacted her new owner a few months later and he told me the story of how he had wanted the filly I had bought in 1998 and now he got the mare I had always wanted.  I asked if he wanted to sell that mare yet - he said no.  He always gave me that answer every time I would ask him!  On May 3, 2003 the smoky black mare, Mon Tana Dancer, foaled the palomino filly, Red Rose Stardancer, by Triple S Bald Eagle.  She was offered to us at 2 weeks old and we couldn't help but snatch her up! And now, we sure are glad we did.  Mon Tana Dancer passed away the summer of 2006 and I am grateful to have been given the opportunity to have such a fine daughter of hers in our barn. Stardancer has produced two fantastic fillies for us, Mossrose Glady Dancer and Mossrose Moondancer.

In Memory of Whippoorwill Salus

1986 to 2015

Palomino Mare ~ 100% Foundation Bloodlines

AMHA No. 104663
 
 

The Grand Mare, Whippoorwill Salus!    You may have heard of her!
Whippoorwill Salus was a daughter of Californio, and out of the lovely Whippoorwill Duke daughter, Whippoorwill Pazazz. Californio was a dappled palomino stallion foaled in 1967. He was National Cutting Horse Champion at the first Morgan Grand National! His disposition was second to none. He had the willingness, heart and try to make him a truly versatile Morgan Horse. Californio's blood still runs today through the veins of many Mossrose prefixed Morgans. His gentle, willing disposition, sweet, kind temperment, correct conformation and winning ability show up strongly in his descendants. Whippoorwill Pazazz, by Whippoorwill Duke, had a sweet, willing and mellow personality which she always passed on to her offspring. Pazazz had her last foal for Whippoorwill Morgans at the age of 25.
 
I can't even begin to speak of the quality of Whippoorwill Salus. She has ability, a disposition of gold as well as the inner and outer beauty that make her one in a million. So many words could describe her, but most simply she was the consumate example of a broodmare. Salus was bred and raised by Mary Jean Vasiloff of Whippoorwill Morgans. While with Mary Jean, Salus was trained for riding and used in many Whippoorwill Morgans Versatility Events and open barns. Salus was the favorite mount for Mary Jean's grand-daughter, Shauna. Shauna is the one in the saddle on many of the pictures of Salus with a rider. Salus raised several quality foals that carry the Whippoorwill prefix before coming to Mossrose Morgans in 2003 at the age of 17. We have retained one Salus daughter carrying the Mossrose prefix as well as a grand-daughter and grandson. We had three Salus daughters and two sons at one time. The Salus daughters are highly acclaimed. All of them are lovely to look at with breathtaking movement. We never dreamed we would be blessed with such a grand mare as Whippoorwill Salus in our herd!
