Quietude Holly is a rich source of Jubilee King for today’s breeders. Jubilee King is in her pedigree four times in the fourth generation and once more in the sixth generation. His daughter Paragraph, that great producing mare, is in Holly’s pedigree twice in the third generation and once in the sixth, giving her the greatest concentration of Paragraph’s blood in this century.
Holly’s parents (Courier x Caven-glo Ballerina) and grandparents were all bred by either Frances Bryant or Eve Oakley, those two excellent breeders carried on in the tradition of J. C. Brunk. And so Quietude Holly bloodlines bring the deep knowledge and careful close breeding of these three true Morgan breeders.

Quietude Holly is a product of close breeding in the tradition of J. C. Brunk, the breed’s master breeder. This tradition was carried on by Frances Bryant and then on to Eve Oakley, Caven-Glo Morgans, and The Quietude Stud. It combines the best of the Daniel Lambert horses with the Old Vermont blood. This tradition was put into perfection by Brunk, breeder of Jubilee King and Paragraph, then Mrs. Bryant followed him using those two and adding in more of the Old Vermont Morgans.
Quietude Holly’s sire, Courier, was bred by Mrs. Bryant as was his sire Criterion and the next sire Jubilee’s Courage. Courier’s dam, Precious Ashmore, was also bred by Mrs. Bryant. Courier was shown some, doing well, and then had little chance at stud, being a back yard horse for many years until purchased by The Quietude Stud. Courier was a handsome, smooth Morgan of good temperament. Criterion was a stunning, handsome, typey, correct Morgan of true Baroque type and excellent correct movement. Criterion’s sire, Jubilee’s Courage was sired by the great Jubilee King. Jubilee King is also the sire of the mare Paragraph, who was the dam of Precious Ashmore, dam of Courier. Paragraph was a broodmare of greatness, dam of many excellent producing daughters and good sons. An extensive article was written about her for Classic Morgan Admirers.
Eve Oakley got her foundation stock from Mrs. Bryant. One of these was the lovely, correct, wonderfully tempered Cavendish who excelled in all asked of him from parades, driving, riding English and western and as sire. He is the sire of Quietude Holly’s dam, Caven-Glo Ballerina. Cavendish was sired by Jubilee’s Courage and out of Paragraph, making him 50% Jubilee King blood. Caven-glo Ballerina’s dam, Libby Ashmore, was out of the excellent producing mare Spring Darling who was a granddaughter of Paragraph. Thus, Holly brings an unparalleled concentration of Paragraph’s blood to this century. Cavendish, Libby Ashmore, Spring Darling and her sire Springfield were all bred by Mrs. Bryant also. Springfield was by Lippitt Sam and out of Paragraph.
Precious Ashmore, behind Courier, and Libby Ashmore, behind Caven-glo Ballerina, were both sired by Lippitt Ashmore, known as a true gentleman. He was smooth, correct, lovely, and a good sire. Criterion’s dam, Lippitt Robrita was sired by Lippitt Rob Roy, another excellent stallion who was useful himself, riding and driving, and a good sire. Lippitt Robrita was a dam of note, producing such as Clement, Cathy Serenity, and more. Her sire was by Lippitt Sam and her dam brings in two crosses to Daniel Lambert through Sir Ethan Allen.
The more one looks at Quietude Holly’s pedigree, the more one is impressed with the repeated close breeding to so many ancestors and how many of her ancestors were noted progenitors. Each mating, through each generation, was well planned by those who really knew Morgans.
