~ Stella Fallingstar ~
2004 Chestnut Mare. Westrek Kiowah x Bridlesweet Duffy.
14.3 hands. 100% Foundation
Stella is a wonderful example of the traditional Morgan Horse being of robust construction and naturally up-headed. She has a broad chest balanced by a strong hind quarters which is testimony to the power of the traditional Morgan Horse.
The first part of Stella's life was spent as a broodmare in Wisconsin where she had a single registered foal. She has had 2 great foals for us so far. Susan Suber of Sugar Shack Farms purchased Stella and brought her to South Carolina. We purchased Stella in 2013 and will be eternally greatful to Susan for the opportunity. Stella has been used on trail rides and started ground driving.
