                            Ida-Ho Morgan History

We purchased our first registered Morgans in 1953 and have been using registered Morgans for our work and pleasure, basically using the same bloodlines ever since (Jubilee King/government cross).  Our first two registered Morgan mares Luck, a Delbert daughter out of a Chief Bugler daughter and Luckís daughter Luckie Nugget a Ken Carmen daughter (Ken Carmen son of Jubilee King).  We used these two mares to work cattle and in the fall to hunt and pack out elk, deer, bear.

In 1955 Dean Jackson (Jackson Morgan Horse Ranch, Harrison, MT) was showing Fleetfield at Pulllman, WA, in a big all breed show . We liked Fleetfield so well that we bought his son Dedrick the next spring.  Dedrickís dam Detta is a daughter of Delbert.  Delbertís dam Alibirde goes back to Red Oak,Headlight Morgan, The Admiral (Sellman breeding).  Dettaís mother is Etta, a Chief Bugler daughter.  All of these horses were used on big cattle ranches.

We used Dedrick on Luck and Nugget and got some real good working horses.  We next got the mare Ella Gates, daughter of Agazizz out of Donbelle Allan.  This proved to be a golden cross with Dedrick.  We got Ida-Ho Prince, Ida-Ho Mary, and Ida-Ho Tammy out of this cross.  We showed Prince, Mary, and Tammy a lot

in the 60ís, 70ís.  We were even asked by a couple of show comities not to bring Mary and Tammy because people wouldn't come to show for third place!

In 1971, I went back to the Jackson Morgan Horse Ranch to get a stallion to breed Mary and Tammy to.  I looked at everything they had and kept going back to a bay yearling colt (9 months old) Mortana Pat.  This turned out one of the best horse deals I ever made even though it seemed a high price at the time.  I had Pat for thirty three years and he was a joy.  Many other Morgan breeding programs used Pat/Ida-Ho Morgan mares offspring for foundation stock or to incorporate into their other bloodlines by breeding their mares to him.  Also, many of his offspring went on to be National/Regional champions.

   Stallions we have used over the years in our breeding program.
