I always look forward to seeing the photos on Saturday.
Thank you! I am still very involved with the Morgans (although not showing) and I will ask my long time friends in Oregon, using your description. THANK YOU.
Re: the photo of the Morgan. Long shot here because of the race-track type fence. In the Corvallis, Oregon area many years ago a physician (I believe an opthamalogist) and his wife were prominent Morgan breeders and exhibitors in the 1960’s and 1970’s. Their barn was a low-rise (as in the photo) and in addition to their indoor and outdoor arenas they had a wide oval “race” track for working their driving horses – that kinda seems like what’s shown in the photo’s background. The woman’s saddle suit is typical of the showring fashion of the 60’s and 70’s (if not earlier) and I recall a lot of those ugly solid color, including white, browbands from those days (I was a kid showing in the Pacific Northwest back then in open and breed shows). Fast forward to the late 1990’s, the property was empty and on the market, the wife having passed away long since, the dr. long ago retired. I corresponded a bit with the listing realtor but the property despite having sadly fallen into disrepair was still far above my budget and I didn’t want to waste the realtor’s time by looking in person at something I couldn’t afford anyway. Dawn, you were involved with Morgans in Oregon, perhaps you can recall who those folks were and thereby be able to search further. I believe many of the old Morgan newsletters/magazines are also online so targeted online searches may turn up something.
