Stable Sheet - December 2018 Part 2
Out of the Past
Dyberry Robin
From the December 1965 issue of "The Morgan Horse" magazine, p. 45. This photo of Dyberry Robin accompanied Louise Beckley's column "Pacific Northwest News." The caption with the photo reads "Dyberry Robin 11532 (Lippitt George x Lippitt Miss Nekomia) won both the Morgan English and Western Pleasure classes at the first Trail's End Stables Horse Show at Olympia, Washington. Robin is owned and ridden by Dr. Elmer Searls, Puyallup."
Glen's Morgan
Glen's Morgan (Glendale X Cora by King de Jarnette) of classic Brunk breeding stood at the Purdy Ranch in the Lorane Valley near Cottage Grove. It was an amazing place built by the Spreckles family (sugar). It had a lovely large barn with big stalls, a regulation race track, rock quarry, and a lovely home. The barn is still standing in good condition. After Mr. Purdy died the sons got into Quarter Horses and the Morgan mares were bred or sold.
In Memory of -
JiLo's KT Rose

From Marla Parrish

“Katie Rose has broken my heart, I lost my best friend.” Marla especially wanted Jim Jorgenson to know what a wonderful horse he raised. “She was not only a gorgeous horse, but smart and loving. Katie Rose was admired by everyone who met her.”
She will be missed but not forgotten.
 Our hearts go out to Marla on the loss of this special horse.

Gladheart Farm & Morgan Horses
Corvallis Area

Two nights ago, post new lights and due to our recent rain events, I was lunging Mort in the arena. Half-way through, he jumped a little as a rather impressive buck strolled along behind him less than 50 feet away (the arena is open to the outside on the long-side).

Less than twenty minutes later, this barn owl swoops in looking rather confused as to why we were in *his* arena.

Another fifteen or twenty minutes later, as I am tacking Jory up (this time in the main barn), I hear a bunch of "clacking" sounds from the antlers of two bucks scrapping about 75-100 feet away behind the barn (there were at least four or five deer based on eye-shine).

We also routinely have to stop (sometimes both morning and night) for the local turkeys to wander across the roads.

A week or so ago, the neighbors mentioned a young cougar strolling down a nearby road (within a 1/4 mile or so of our place) who is obviously *NOT* dealing with the deer or turkey population very effectively.

Rumor mill says there was a sighting of a mother bear and cubs less than five miles from us as the crow flies.

We often see a lot of wildlife, but this week was one for the books.

Carol Dombrowsky up, November 30th. Got to ride my girl today..first time ever. I think she thought she had a basket of raw eggs on her because she was so careful with me which I appreciated. I'm going to take some time to get my body use to it. She was perfect!
Happy pony from Erica Trager.

From Nora: 
43 years ago I married my soulmate. He has made sure I never wanted for anything I needed. He has celebrated with me on my victories, but more importantly he has held me while I cried when I failed. I LOVE you old man. Happy Anniversary.
From Jessica Pelissier,

Scandias Signature giving
baby kisses. So cute.
It's so gradual, that change from toddler to little kid to adolescent.
Most days I've got my head down, throwing my weight into life's
traces, and I don't see it happening. Photos like this always catch me
low in the gut, because all of a sudden I can see how old they've
become, and I get a glimpse of the men they might be.
