Extracts From Corresponideonce
From IMorgaut Horse Co's Cala
My iather owned a dark chestnut
sorrel horse when I was a boy wlieh
he said was a Morgan; and we kept
this horse until he was twenty-mve
years old. We never owned anotlor
horse that was his equal.-James G
.Wilson, Swedesburg, Iowa.
I am much pleased with your elort
to reviveinterest in the Morgan. I
consider him the most perfect Amer
ican horse; capable of adaptini him
self to nearly all conditions of useful
ness; combining a courage and intel
ligence that can always ba relied on
if understood and a ppreciated.-D It
Murdock, Great Fals, Mont.
There is not a horse onl top of the
ground that I prize so highly as the
Morgan and at no distant day I ex
pect to own some of them.-C O Fow..
ler, North Topeka, Kan.
The Morgans are tht. best horsei
I qver owned, always ready for work
or fun.-J Lyons IHatfield, rlTuske,
I have handled *Morgang horses
all my life, and think is no better
horse to-day than the Morgan.--L.
M. Markham, Bushnell, McDonough
I think the Morgan horses are the
toughest in the wvorld. I have got a
mare that is part Morgan and I will
not sell hecr. She is tougher thani
whalebone.-N- L. Oaks, Hartford,
Minnehaha Co., South D~akota.
For myself, I would not give one
Morgan hiorse for all the Ulamblleton
iasor any other horse on earth.
-Jos. W. Grimes, Beatrice, Gage co.
I think tihe Morgan is thme only
horse that is built solid from the foun..
dation up. He is almost a n)on-bl em
ishable horse; as well as faultless; lie
is spirltedl, with an intellsgenice alnost
human 1 am all for the Morgan.
L. G. Rlittenhouse, Binigham Lake
I think the Morgan horse is the
grandest horse living. He is goodl
for' anything you want to use him for.
W. H. Keedy,'Mt. Morris, Ill.
I am a great lover of fine horses
and think the Morgan horse is far
superior to all others. I have a span
of mares five years old this spri'ng
and they have sonmeof tihe old Morgan
blood in their veins. 'Lbey weigh1000
pounids each, anid are the best team
I over owned. G. F. Hastings, WVorth
I drove a gradeM organ mare forty..
five miles in five hours, the last of
March hitched to a One horse buggy,
over as muddy roads as I ever saw ini
Dakota, and she was ready to run at
the end of the trip.-G. W. Sweet.
I am a very warm friend of the
Morgan stock, and I don't believe
there is any other breed of horses in
America that can come near being
equal to themfor dispositioni, enidur
ance and strength.-George E. Ad
ams, Edgewood Park, Pa.
