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. If a client/buyer has interest, we will breed for a "custom foal".
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". 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 registration (No Breeding).
Island Dos was bred to the very sharp, English male: I Will Of Tintagel Winds -aka-Forrest for an early May 2016 litter. This litter of 8, was stunningly beautiful and extremely intelligent! All the pups were spoken for at birth and have gone to their new homes. Thank-you to everyone who chose one of these puppies! This was Dos's last litter before her retirement from the whelping box.
Island Duchess has had a date with I Will Of Tintagel Winds - aka - Forrest! She has been confirmed pregnant and is due to whelp early Sept, 2016. This should be a golden cross! Duchesses mother, Island Breeze is a daughter of Will To Please Of Tintagel Winds. Will & Forrest are closely related so this cross should produce some excellent "Old School" puppies. We are very excited about this cross and plan to keep a puppy for ourselves.
Island Jada has had a date with the very handsome and well known black male, Hollyridge Out Of The Blue - aka - Miles. Miles has an excellent show record, lots of breed type and is loved by his owner of Hollyridge Labradors. We would like to Thank them for all their assistance with this "date". This will be Jada's first litter. We are extremely excited to see these pups! So excited, we may have to keep one ................... Jada is due to whelp in late Sept. 2016.
If you have interest in a puppy please send us and email or give a quick phone call.
2016 Kids are here, and weaned!

If you are looking for some older goats, breeding Bucks or would like to start a herd, we are cutting our herd down by half. We can no longer keep up with the work load.
There are some very 'loud/fancy' 2015 doelings/bucks and does from 2+ yrs being offered. Many of these are proven does. Curretnly working on updating our website to reflect this sell down. Transport can easily be arranged if out of State or into Canada. Package prices are available.
Our herd is now in it's 6th year of the Federal Export Scrapie program! What this means is, due to the new regulations for border crossing into Canada, all our goats, including does, can now be sold into Canada!
Our herd is current on CDT shots, free of CAE, CL & Johnnes - testing thru Cornell University - and our herd is in it's 6th year of the FEDERAL Export Scrapie Program.

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.............
