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 and produce "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. There are less than 1,000 Morgans like this left in the breed. Some highlighted past greats that grace our herd are: Red Correll, certain Flyhawk lines, Senator Graham, Warhawk, Chingadero, Jubilee King, Muchacha, Black Jig, Farceurs Morgan, Otto McClure (etc). Good dispositions and work ethics come down through these lines.
We are 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 continuely 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! We try to have at least one or two, quality litters per year. These pups are sold with an: Sales Contract, AKC "Limited Registration," 1 Year Health warranty, 1st vaccinations, Vet check, Health Records & current Worming program.
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! We are very proud of our girls!
Island Duchess II whelped her second litter on June 3, 2014! The proud father is: Belquest It's All or Nothin (Gateway's Nothing But Trouble x Belquest Very Impressionable) - aka Hoss. Hoss is owned by Belquest Kennels of Mount Airy, MD. We are so pleased with the quality & bloodline of these pups that we are keeping one for ourselves! All these pups have found their Forever-homes. Plans are being made for another early 2015 litter. If you would like to go onto our 'future litter' waitlist, please feel free to contact us. Once a litter is born, they are normally all spoken for.
Our first wave of 2014 Fainting goat kids arrived in April. We will have a second kidding in July. Currently, we are offering a few select, proven bucks and weaned doelings/bucklings for sale. If you have interest, contact us!
We are proud to announce the arrival of two new Buck prospects to the farm. The first, Carriage House Island Roy arrived from FL. in late April. Roy is black/white, very friendly and large bodied.
