Meet "Joy"

I have had the highest privilege to obtain this beautiful mare in the fall of 2009. Earlier that spring, I took my first broodmare, Vicki to breed her to a beautiful Lippitt stallion named Bloomer. Unfortunately, Bloomer became sterile and Vicki was no longer a viable broodmare. I spent months sulking over it until the opportunity came where I got the opportunity to purchase my favorite Bloomer foal. I just couldn’t say no and I brought her home on October 9th.

Joy is a stunning liver chestnut with an amazing personality. She is loving, talktative, and affectionate. She actually leans in to you to have her belly scratched... it's like having a giant dog. Consequently, it makes most people nervous- you're normally supposed to run away if a horse starts backing its rear end into you, but not with this one! And she's a beauty to watch out in the pasture whenever she kicks up her heels and flags her tail with the rest of the herd.




Joy is the “Bloomer baby” that I was after. I had high hopes for her career as a broodmare, but due to my life taking me in the direction of giving up my dream for Lippitt breeding, she had become my loveable pet and riding companion, as well as Vicki's favorite pasture buddy. I do intend to breed her at least once, just not right now. She has a forever home in my barn and in my heart.

See Joy’s pedigree here.

Joy has the best of both worlds. Her Lippitt sire, Bloomer is a half-brother to the great Shamrock Seville (a world champion and a sire of champions). Bloomer's sire, Moro Hill's Marquis, comes from the great Moro Hill's Morgans that have bred and shown countless champions. Bloomer's maternal grandmother, Bonnie Twilight, is also a world-class champion and his maternal grandsire Hiker Joy (along with his sire Allen's Major) are some of the best sport horse sires and are ranked at the top in the list of sport horse sires that have produced world champions. Joy's Government dam, Aquila's Total Devotion, is a daughter of a world champion, and hails from some of the best known bloodlines in the Government family such as Waseeka's In Command, Upwey Ben Don, and Kingston. Joy truly has the blood of champions.

Joy is 60.7421875% Lippitt and 95.8984375% Foundation.

This is me in 2008 riding Joy’s sire Bloomer. Bloomer was quiet enough that you could breed him in the morning and ride him in the afternoon. And it was this gentle personality that made me fall in love with this stallion. And I'm delighted to say that Joy also has the same qualities as her sire.


Best Noted Morgans In Her Pedigree



Allen’s Major- This stallion, along with his son Hiker Joy are some of the best-noted Lippitt Sport Horse sires. Allen’s Major is ranked in the top list of highly respected Sport Morgan sires in the history of its division. Major is also a big name in his generation of the Lippitt branch.







Aquila’s Total Eclipse- Eclipse is most well known for being a World Champion Driving Stallion and a magnificent show sire. The fact that he is Joy’s grandsire places him in the top of the list of best-noted Morgans.





Waseeka’s In Command- In Command was not only a champion in the show ring, but he was such a sought after sire that today the In Command Line is one of the most famous and well renowned bloodline in the Morgan World. He and his sire, Waseeka’s Nocturne were the biggest cornerstone sires that shaped the foundation of the Contemporary Show Morgan.
