OGO Luna Illuminati – 2006 Colt

Illuminati Just 2 Hours Old

Born – 5/25/2006

NEW!! There is a brand new addition to Old Growth Oak Morgans!  Introducing…OGO Luna Illuminati.

Illuminati was born about 8 a.m. on 5-25-06 and is a strapping black stud colt with a small irregular star.  We had just decided that STK Black Velvet was no longer a Morgan Horse, but rather, a ‘Horseopotimus, because she was so huge.

This colt will likely mature between 15.2 – 16.0 hands tall with the height and movement of his sire, Caduceus Denver.   He will have the body, substance and type of his dam, STK Black Velvet.

Caduceus Denver X STK Black Velvet
Black colt, Foaled May 25, 2006
Bred By Old Growth Oak Morgans

Caduceus Denver, was a big, black stallion bred by Dr. Lowell Hughes, he sired at least 30 foals, with perhaps more due in 2008, he was foaled in 1983. He died in 2007. Denver had a great deal of charisma, and passed on that as well as his size and energy to his offspring. He was sired by Wyoming Flyhawk, another popular black stallion , who in turn was sired by Domino Joe.

Denver’s dam was Topside Sable. While the sire side of his pedigree is primarily a mix of Brunk breeding with emphasis on Flyhawk and Jubilee King lines, with a bit of Government through Plains King, and some crosses to Knox Morgan, Denver’s dam side is more Knox Morgan on Jubilee King blood.

Wyoming Flyhawk his sire, was bred by Reed Allen Jr. of Lander, WY. Wyoming Flyhawk was black, sixteen hands and the sire of many foals born between 1976 and 1996- a prodigious number indeed of 132 foals! He was by Domino Joe out of Lily Black. Domino Joe was by Stetson ( Flyhawk X Sentola). [Sentola was a full sister to Jubilee King. ] and Dominio Joe’s dam was Midnight by Highview King out of Lupine. Highview King was bred by Helen Brunk Greenwalt, he was by King de Jarnette out of Sentola. King de Jarnette was by Jubilee King out of Deura. Both Jubilee King and Deura were later sold to Texas, where their offspring went into the Quarter Horse breed. Jubilee King and Sentola were both by Penrod out of Daisette. Penrod was by Allen Franklin out of Black Bess, Allen Franklin was by Jasper Franklin by Ben Franklin by Daniel Lambert by Ethan Allen 50 by Black Hawk Morgan by Sherman Morgan by Justin Morgan. Black Bess was by Jubilee De Jarnette by Jubilee Lambert by Daniel Lambert, and her dam (The John HooverMare) was by Tom Corwin by Young Green Mountain who went back to Woodbury Morgan. So Black Bess in addition to her Sherman top line, and her Sherman bottom mare line- her dam had Little Giant behind her and he was by Black Hawk Morgan, brings in Woodbury through his son Gifford. Jubilee De Jarnette who was the sire of Black Bess , was out of the very famous mare Lady De Jarnette. She was so unbeatable at show that in time nobody would show against her and she only put on exhibitions. Lady De Jarnette was by Indian Chief by Blood’s Vermont Black Hawk and her dam was Belle by Litton’s Warfield. The Wood Mare , who was the dam of Little Giant went back to Woodbury top and bottom of her pedigree. Allen Franklin’s dam was Daisy by Billy Bodette. Daisy was one of JC Brunk’s foundation mares, she was the dam of twelve foals, and carried 22 crosses to Justin Morgan. Billy Bodette, her sire Billy Bodette went back to Sherman through Billy Root, and the more scarce -Royal Morgan. Daisy’s dam -Al Hastings Mare- also carried Sherman through Billy Root to Billy Folsum. In addition she had lines to Gifford Morgan, and to Bulrush Morgan through Randolph Morgan. Daisy was of Ancient Vermont breeding, and was foaled in Vermont in 1884, bred by Lemuel Hunt. Jasper Franklin, sire of Allen Franklin, was out of the Daniel Lambert daughter Twilight. Twilight’s dam was Hannah, she was by Ti Boy by Black Hawk by Sherman Morgan.

Daisette, the dam of both Sentola and Jubilee King was by Senator Knox out of Daisy De Jarnette. Senator Knox was by the Knox Morgan out of Senata. Knox Morgan was the sire of 55 Morgan registered foals. He was born in Maine in 1891 bred by Augustus Dunlap. He became a premier stallion for JC Brunk and died at Cotton Hill Farm in 1919. Knox Morgan was by Mountaineer Morgan by Vincent Horse by the Shedd Horse by Vermont Morgan Champion by Sherman Morgan.

Strong as his Sherman Morgan blood was, Knox Morgan on his sire side also carried the blood of Bulrush through the Jennison colt. He also had a line to Woodbury through Gifford via Mountaineer Morgan. Knox Morgan’s dam was The Augustus Dunlap mare – she by Sagadahoc by General Knox, out of a mare by Spragues Ethan Allen. Spragues Ethan Allen went back to Woodbury through his sire Putnam Morgan and his dam the Partridge mare- both were by Woodbury. Putnam Morgans dam was Nancy by Chanticleer by Justin Morgan, and the Partridge mare’s dam was out of a daughter of Sherman Morgan. That mare by Spragues Ethan Allen, the dam of The Augustus Dunlap mare went back to Sherman again through Priscilla by Black Hawk Morgan. The Knox Morgan was an extremely influential horse, one who still has influence on today’s Morgans. When he was bred to Senata to produce Senator Knox his influence became legion through his grandson Senator Graham.

Senata was perhaps JC Brunk’s most famous mare, she was without question a beautiful animal and of Ancient Vermont breeding. She was by Senator out of Daisy- the same Daisy who was dam to Allen Franklin. Senator was by Morgan Rupert X Nell. Morgan Rupert was by Ethan Allen 3rd. who was by Ethan Allen 2nd by Peter’s Morgan by Vermont Morgan by Gifford by Woodbury. Vermont Morgan’s dam was Jennie by Hale’s Green Mountain Morgan by Gifford. Very strong Woodbury breeding here. Peter’s Morgan’s dam was the Wilson Partridge mare by Morgan Hunter 2nd by Morgan Hunter by Gifford again. However, Morgan Hunter 2nd’s dam – a mare by The Colby Horse went back to not only Sherman via Colby, but back to Bulrush by a daughter of his. Though the Wilson Partridge mare Peter’s Morgan picked up another line to Woodbury through General Hibbard, and to Bulrush again through the Croyden mare. Ethan Allen 2nd , by Peter’s Morgan, had as his dam the Stephen Dow mare. She was by Ethan Allen 50 by Black Hawk, bringing in Sherman again. Ethan Allen 50’s dam was Poll by Red Robin by Justin Morgan. The Stephen Dow mare’s dam was Jennie who was the dam of Vermont Morgan.{mospagebreak}

Ethan Allen 3 was out of Kitty Thurber Wiggins Mare. She by Cushing’s Green Mountain by Hale’s Green Mountain Morgan by Gifford out of the Nathan Whitcomb mare who was by Woodbury out of a daughter of Justin Morgan. Cushing’s Green Mountain was out of the Nathaniel Goss mare. She was by Billy Root by Sherman out of the Crane Mare by Royal Morgan by Sherman. The bottom of the Kitty Thurber Wiggins mare goes back to Sherman primarily. The top side of her pedigree is fairly equal in the blood of Woodbury and of Sherman. Nell, who was the dam of Morgan Rupert was by Cushing’s Green Mountain also, but she was out of the Watson Mare by Wood’s Comet by Billy Root and out of the Watson mare by Royal Morgan. So Nell on the dam side of her pedigree was Sherman Morgan in great strength via Royal Morgan, Billy Root, the Crane Mare and the Batchelder Horse. Likewise Senator’s dam (Lucy) was strong Sherman blood through virtually the same horses as behind Nell. Senata had nine foals and was Grand Champion Mare of the 1904 St. Lewis World’s Fair, where Knox Morgan was Grand Champion Stallion at the same show.

Daisy De Jarnette, dam of Daisette was by Jubilee De Jarnette out of Ben’s Daisy. Both sire and dam go back to Daniel Lambert via Jubilee Lambert , Ben Franklin and Daisy who is behind Senata. This then is the dam line behind Stetson, sire of Domino Joe. Stetson was by Flyhawk, and Flyhawk was by Go Hawk, one of two stallions that JC Brunk brought into his breeding program besides Knox Morgan. Go Hawk was by Sunny Hawk out of Bombo. Sunny Hawk is almost pure Sherman blood carrying Sherman Black Hawk, Vernol’s Black Hawk, Black Hawk on his sire side, his dam- Whitefoot was by Hercules by Herod by King Herod by Sherman Black Hawk. Bombo, dam of Go Hawk brings in Bulrush blood and Woodbury blood as well as more Sherman blood. Bombo was by Hawkins by Hercules by Herod. Hawkins was out of Gipsey by Brown Flying Cloud out of Nellie. Brown Flying Cloud was by Golden Forest who was a grandson of the famous Woodbury stallion Golddust. Golddust also carried Sherman through his sire’s ( Vermont Morgan) dam. Golddust was the fastest trotter of his day. While he sired only 87 Morgan foals, his total progeny numbered 302! 19 were registered as Saddlebred, and the rest were taken in the Trotting Horse registry. Golden Forest was out of Lady Forrester who went back to Sherman on her sire line and to Woodbury on her dam’s line. Nora was the dam of Brown Flying Cloud and she repeats the pattern of Sherman Woodbury mix. With an additional line to Bulrush on her dam’s side via the Black Bulrush mare to Ed Rankin Mare to Maggie, her dam. Nellie, the dam of Gipsey , dam of Hawkins, was by John R. X Gailbaugh Mare who was by Morgan Lion by Royal Morgan. John R was by Panic by Ethan Allen 50 by Black Hawk. Panic was out of a Sherman Black Hawk daughter, and Morgan Lion was out of a Billy Root daughter. Bombo, the dam of Go Hawk had as her dam Goldy by Hero Of Manilla. out of Lil who was by Paw Paw Chief out of a crème Arabian Mare. Paw Paw Chief was Morgan by benefit of his dam- the Holmes mare who was a daughter of Revenge by Snake Mountain Black Hawk by Sherman Black Hawk by Black Hawk by Sherman. Hero of Manilla is a different story however- he was by Herod by King Herod by Sherman Morgan. Herod’s dam was by Green Mountain Boy by Black Hawk. Morrill Queen the dam of Hero of Manilla was by Winnebago Chief by Mountain Chief by Morrill by The Jennison Colt by the Randolph Morgan by Bulrush Morgan. There is another line to Bulrush Morgan through Olive the dam of Morrill Queen. Olive was by Monogram by Fearnaught by Perkin’s Young Morrill. Sherman Morgan is present in this side of the pedigree of Olive in that her dam was a granddaughter of Black Hawk . That mare -The Beach Mare- was also a granddaughter of Revenge by Justin Morgan.

Domino Joe’s dam was Midnight. Midnight was sired by Highview King out of Lupine by Plains King. Highview King was by King De Jarnette ( Jubilee King out of Deura). Deura was by Senator Knox out of Penala. Panela was by Penrod, sire of Jubilee King and Sentola, and out of Galva. Galva was by Billy Herod out of Chista.

Billy Herod was by Herod out of the FS Bailey Mare. Herod we have met before and he goes back to Sherman Morgan. The FS Bailey Mare was by the TB Cleveland and out of the FS Bailey Morgan mare by Joslyn Morgan who also went back to Sherman Morgan through Black Hawk as well as to Sherman through the Rev Green mare an own daughter of Sherman. Chista, dam of Galva was by Chetco out of Lucy by Billy Bodette. Chetco was by Ben Franklin by Daniel Lambert and Billy Bodette goes back to Sherman through Billy Root and the James Greeley mare, another own daughter of Sherman. The dam of Highview King was Sentola. Lupine who was the dam of Midnight was by Plains King and out of Mallow. This is LU Sheep Co breeding. Plains King was by Romanesque and bred by the Hiebert Brothers of Kansas. His dam was Ella Linsley. Plains King sired 116 Morgan foals! Romanesque was bred by Richard Sellman, and sired 67 Registered Morgan get, plus an amazing 318 others for the Remount Service. Romanesque was sired by Red Oak, bred in Middlebury , VT by the Government Farm. Red Oak was by General Gates out of Marguerite. Marguerite was by White River Morgan out of the John P Marsh mare. Marguerite’s pedigree is primarily Sherman blood through Black Hawk with a line to Woodbury through Hale’s Green Mountain Morgan. Mariah K was the dam of Romanesque. She was a classic Sellman mare being by Headlight Morgan out of Sweet Marie by The Admiral. Headlight Morgan was by Ethan Allen 2nd out of Lady Stratton by Vermont Morgan , who was also the grandsire of Ethan Allen 2nd.

Vermont Morgan’s dam was the Alfred Adams mare- she was by the Jerome Cox horse by Ransom Horse by Morgan Tally Ho by Woodbury.

That mare who was by Addison by Black Hawk Morgan. Sweet Marie by The Admiral out of Sweetheart by Gold Medal. The Admiral goes back to Jubilee Lambert and Winnebago Chief via Jubilee De Jarnette and Morrill Queen. Sweetheart by Gold Medal brings in via her sire more Sherman Morgan, through Sherman Black Hawk, and Black Hawk himself. He also brought in more Woodbury through Gifford via the Moody Mare and Hale’s Green Mountain Morgan. Nell Gordon, Sweetheart’s dam, was by Major Gordon by Octoroon Jr. by Octoroon who goes back to Woodbury via the Putnam Morgan and to Bulrush via The Johnson Mare as well as to Hawkins Horse by Justin Morgan via Davy Crockett.

Adventure , dam of Admiral George Dewey was by Venture by Aristos X BW Burleigh mare by Abraham. Both Aristos and Abraham were sons of Daniel Lambert. Duchess the dam of Imperial , was sired by Meteor Jr and out of the Alden Fell mare by Winnebago Chief Jr. . So the Alden Fell mare gives us more lines going back to Sherman, Woodbury, and Bulrush.

Topside Sable was the dam of Caduceus Denver. She was by Kings Haven Senator out of Topside Sassafras by Mickey Finn. Kings Haven Senator was the sire of 96 Morgan foals.

Whippoorwill Starling by Bald Mt Black Hawk

was out of Whippoorwill Melody. Whippoorwill Melody , like Whippoorwill Duke was sired by Squire Burger a son of Juzan by Jubilee King out of Nella. The difference between the siblings is that Duke was out of Diana Mansfield ( Mansfield X Lippitt Trixie Ash) while Whippoorwill Melody was out of Locket ( Hawk Jim X Charm by Captor).

So within these lines you have primarily Woodbury breeding, but there is some Sherman blood as well though BlackHawk, Bulrush comes in twice through two daughters and Red Robin comes in twice as well. Tinkerbelle, dam of Bald Mt. Black Cloud was by Sealect- by Sir Ethan Allen by Ethan Allen 3. Sealect’s dam was the Knox Morgan daughter Bell Marea out of the Underwood Mare who was by Ned Norton, (a Gifford Morgan grandson), crossed with Little Fannie.
