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 can breed for a "custom foal".
AKC Labrador Retrievers
Along with our horses, we raise English type, 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 they 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 has bred to : Belquest Doing It For The Ladies -aka-Dew for an August 2017 all yellow litter. This is the 3rd time this cross has been done! The 2nd time resulted in our Island Jada & Island Ace Of Spades. We believe this litter is spoken for but, you never know! This litter will be Dos's last. She will be offically "Retired" from the whelping box. She will enjoy her retirement here at the farm bossing around all the other dogs and keeping any new puppies in line! (She's good at that!)
Island Duchess will be bred for a 2017 Fall litter if there is enough interest. If not, she will be bred for a Spring 2018 litter. If you have interest in a puppy from her, please let us know. We do have a few people waiting.

Please inquire if you have interest

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