By Brenda Tippin
Starting in the January 2015 issue of The Morgan Horse magazine, Morgan historian Brenda Tippin has contributed a series on the genesis of our breed. The series features a look at Justin Morgan himself followed by separate articles (with as many as 7,500 to 10,000 words per article) on the prominent sons Sherman, Woodbury, and Bulrush, and into the future with the well-known grandsons and other descendants. We offer these articles here for public enjoyment. If you missed reading them earlier in print we strongly urge you to consider subscribing to the official breed journal.
