MOR­GANS AT WORK

EQUUS - - Insights Conformati­on -

This very in­ter­est­ing photo dates to about 1875 and shows the stal­lions Mor­gan Tiger (1868, a great-grand­son of Sher­man Mor­gan and Billy Root 1829), and Mor­gan Star (1855, by Black Hawk out of an un­known mare). The horses are har­nessed to a chaise driven by Amos H. Rock­well with­out bri­dles or reins. A con­tem­po­rary news­pa­per ac­count re­ports that Rock­well “drove them in the pub­lic streets, guid­ing and con­trol­ling them en­tirely by the use of a 10-foot whip … and ex­hib­ited them in ev­ery state in the Union.”
