This handsome typey fellow combines the willingness and sense of the Brunk family with the toughness and sense of the Nekomias. He has the desirable Jubilee King sire line while the rest of his pedigree is Old Vermont, thus bringing together these two grand families and continuing the tradition of J. C. Brunk’s work of mating Daniel Lambert sires with Old Vermont mares. Cimarron brings to us the best of some of the old Lippitt breeding, combining the spirited Nekomia horses with the more easy going Ashbrook. In Cimarron’s dam we have many excellent breeding Morgans who were also talented using horses and who bring great beauty and type. Cimarron’s sire brings us the Jubilee King sire line coupled with more of the Old Vermont blood, some of it Lippitt, and all of it coming from good breeding horses. He brings to this century some excellent old blood of the previous century, often doing so very quickly. He brings a heritage of tough using horses who were bred for work and bred by people who truly knew the ancient Morgan.
Cimarron, foaled in 1986, was one of the later sons of that grand stallion, Criterion who was foaled in 1961. Criterion’s sire, Jubilee’s Courage, was foaled in 1944, and his sire, Jubilee King, was foaled in 1927. This is getting back to the old blood very quickly and from a long-lived line of horses.
This truly Baroque style stallion is a double grandson of Sereno Firechief, one of Joanne Curtis’ breedings. This gives a rare source of her breeding which is highly valued by good breeders. Behind Zinnie are multiple crosses to Jubilee King, Linsley, Richard Sellman’s breeding, Red Vermont, and much of the grand old California ranch horses. Zinnie also has a cross to the old Devan breeding through his dam and there is some more Brunk through some different lines also found there.
This grand old stallion has a pedigree that is rare due to the fact that every horse on the fourth generation was registered in Registry Volume 5 or earlier; that volume ends with the year 1937. This is getting back to the old blood very quickly. With his sire line being that of Jubilee King and one other cross to that great stallion, Clarion has the true Lambert traits of magnificent correct three gaits, Baroque style, correct conformation, good looks, excellent sense and much willingness. Both his parents were bred by Frances Bryant who was continuing what J. C. Brunk started by bringing together the Lambert and Old Vermont Morgan families. With his strong pedigree, it is no surprise that Clarion gives to his get all his good traits which are also those of his ancestors.

CanDon Joshua Danny, a handsome and correct palomino, brings a grand heritage to today, that of working and using Morgans of Baroque looks and good minds. He has shown English and Western and done well and also is a working horse in training colts, ponying them and helping with their first rides. He is a very good trail horse with sense and calmness. He has gone to clinics and done much to promote Morgans in his area. His sire Shatona Karzan brings a ranch heritage from California and Wyoming. There are good Sellman lines, Brunk lines and Old Midwest lines in his pedigree. Joshs dam brings more Sellman and Brunk as well as some Old Vermont. She has a concentrated source of Red Vermont through Easter Vermont, that wonderfully correct and Baroque sire. Joshs overall pedigree is well balanced and themed with the same ancestors appearing multiple times in many cases. This gives Josh a breeding strength to pass on the good using traits that is the heritage of the Morgan.
*For more information on Joshs pedigree, see under his son, OGO Windswept Soleil.
Denver, with his strong Brunk and Western Working Family pedigree, is a source of height, excellent movement, good looks and good minds. Behind him are the three branches of Brunk greatness—Jubilee King, Flyhawk and Senator Graham. Jubilee King comes through such good ones as Agazziz, Mickey Finn, Ken Carmen, and more. Plus there are crosses to Jubilee King’s sister, Sentola. Flyhawk comes down through various good breeding stock too. There is also the Western Working Family from Romanesque and various Linsley descendants. The bottom mare line goes to early Montana breeding. Throughout this pedigree there was careful breeding for good working horses with good minds. Many of his ancestors were strong breeding horses, some founding their own families. This is a strong horse with a strong pedigree bringing the wonderful old Morgans to today.
This handsome, correct, beautiful moving, and sensible even-tempered stallion brings to today the legacy of J. C. Brunk and his breeding program. With six close crosses to Jubilee King, the traits from Jubilee King are strongly fixed and passed on for the future. Canyon of Quietude also carries on the breeding wisdom of Frances Bryant and Eve Oakley who continued on in Brunk’s footsteps by continuing to meld the two families of the Daniel Lamberts and the Old Vermont Morgans. Brunk started with Daniel Lambert sires and bred them to selected Old Vermont High Percent mares. He then bred the original results carefully to one another and back to the original stock. Mrs. Bryant carried on this procedure with Jubilee King and his daughter Paragraph, and using some of the best of the Old Vermont stock of her time. Eve Oakley got her foundation horses from Mrs. Bryant and continued on with this proven breeding.

This handsome, correct, good-minded stallion is well known by many. His numerous get are made in his image and his strongly close bred pedigree helps to bring the old California working Morgan heritage to today. His sire is a double grandson of Ro Mac, that good son of Gay Mac, and Gay Mac is to be found twice more in the pedigree. The dam line of Valdez’s paternal grandsire has some good old Brunk breeding and there is also some old Brunk behind the sire of Valdez’s dam. The mare lines predominately go to Richard Sellman and there is also Sellman’s breeding on a sire line going back to the good Sun Down Morgan. His pedigree and heritage is that of pure Western Working Family with many prolific breeding horses behind him. His entire pedigree is one of breeding strength.
