Morgan Hill Farm is located in the Lake Champlain Valley region of Vermont on the small island of North Hero. We are mainly a breeding farm striving to preserve "Old" style Morgans with a splash of COLOR! Our horses are versatile enough for the Sport horse world, eye catching for the show ring, smart & catty for reining & cutting, yet quiet enough for the family friend. The herd carries some very old, hard to find genetics and are a rich blend of old Brunk, Gov't and California lines. We strive to preserve 'using' dispositions, breed type and ease of use. Most of our horses are what's termed, "foundation-bred"- meaning, no modern day outcrosses. Some highlighted past greats that grace our herd are: Red Correll, certain Flyhawk lines, Senator Graham, Warhawk, Chingadero, Fleetfield, Jubilee King, Muchacha, Black Jig, Kenfield, Farceurs Morgan, Otto McClure, Torchfire, (etc). Good dispositions and work ethics come down through these lines.
We have been slowly cutting back on our Morgan breeding program. We continue to breed but, only on a limited basis. Because of this, many Morgans have left our farm and gone on to wonderful new 'using' homes. We are Thankful to everyone who purchased one of our horses! The economy is not great but, we have continually sold quality horses to people looking for old style Morgans. With less work on the horizon, we hope to get out and show again. If you have interest in one of our horses - even if it isn't listed for sale - or an up coming foal, please email or give us a call.
Along with our horses, we raise English bred, AKC Labrador Retrievers. They help out on the farm, compete in agility trials, ride around the farm on the equipment and vay for the front seat of the Prowler or truck! Their favorite past time is sitting on the deck with us enjoying the sunset and getting their much craved "People Time".
January 2013, Island Uno, Island Harley and Island Dos all received their AKC Title of: Canine Good Citizen! This makes 4 of our dogs to now have AKC Titles! Island Jada is currently working on getting her CGC Title with Island Shelby & Island Duchess waiting in the wings. We are very proud of our girls!
We produce at least one or two, quality litters per year. If you have interest in one of these puppies, you will need to get on our waitlist. We don't offer older puppies or our older dogs for sale. The puppies we keep, become our older dogs. These older dogs, are family and have earned the right to stay with us until God calls them home. We take great pride in producing healthy, happy dogs who become excellent family members with the ability for hunting, agility, obedience etc. All our puppies are sold with a 1 yr. Health Warranty, Sale contract, 1st shots, health records, vet check, regular worming from 2 wks of age, copies of their parents clearances/genetic testing and an AKC Limited (No Breeding) registration.
Island Dos had a Jan. 2015 yellow litter by: Cumberland Nutmeg Sampson. This was Sammy's first litter, and WHAT a litter it was! Not only did Sammy bring back our original bloodlines, he brought back that SUPER Lab personality. A BIG Thank-you goes out to Sammy's owners for making this possible. All these puppies are now in their Forever homes.
Island Duchess, produced 4 healthy puppies on June 3, 2015! 3 yellow boys & 1 fancy black girl. The proud father of this litter is our very own home-grown boy: Island Ace Of Spades. Ace is a full sibling to our Island Jada. This makes this the first litter in-which we produced both parents! It's taken years as all our dogs are closely related and go back to our first Labrador, Sc Backporch Oatmeal ( Oats). Currently, all of these puppies are spoken for.
We are proud to announce the arrival of two new Bucks to the farm. The first, Carriage House Island Roy arrived from FL. in late April 2014. Roy is black/white, very friendly and large bodied. Our second boy, Goat Flower Farm Island Moon arrived in May 2014 from PA. Moon is black with blue flecked eyes and two colors of fancy Moon Spots! He is very friendly and extremely stocky.
OUR 2015 KIDS ARE HERE AND FOR SALE!
Many of them have blue eyes and Moonspots! Quality buck prospects, wethers and fancy doelings are offered. We are weaning now! Call us for pixs and specs if you have interest. We are currently getting photos for the website.
Our herd is current on CDT & Rabie shots, free of CAE, CL & Johnnes - testing thru Cornell University - and our herd is in it's 4th year of the Export Scrapie Program. We have 3 more years to go before reaching full approval. Once approved, our goats will qualify for Export outside of the USA!
The farm offers Morgan Horses, Tennessee Fainting Goats, AKC Labrador Retriever puppies (Yellow & Black) and Morgan stallions at stud.

This site is dedicated to the Fond memory of my friend and Mentor, Dr. Lowell Hughes.
(April 4, 1928- Nov. 5, 2001)
Dr. Hughes with his wonderful stallion, Patchett Hill (Easter Vermont x Starlette B)
Dr. Hughes was the founder of Caduceus Morgans in North Liberty, Iowa. He was known for producing large Black Morgan Sporthorses of Mid-western and Brunk breeding. He had a knack for finding well bred horses that were tucked away on lost roads and in forgotten barns.
His favorite stallion being the late, Wyoming Flyhawk (Domino Joe x Lily Black), actually stood at Reed Allen's Ranch in Lander Wy. along with my deceased foundation stallion, H-Ken (Kenfield x Muchacha). I guess it was written, even back then, that I would eventually meet Dr. Hughes. Our taste in horseflesh were quite similar.
Dr. Hughes was a very kind and generous man who was always willing to take a new comer under his wing. This is what he did for me. I miss my friend and mentor. Words can never describe how I feel or tell the depth of my loss. I will take both the knowledge he gave, and the horses he produced and carry on into an uncertain future marked by his footsteps. God Bless until we meet again.............
