Dream Morgan Farm Update



As a follow up to the evacuation day story posted in early December, this is an update on the current situation at Dream Morgan Farm. As many know, Terry and Brinden Johnson, owners of Dream Morgan Farm in Chehalis, WA, suffered extreme damage in a severe rainstorm last month. Friends and family took dramatic efforts to remove the Dream Morgan herd from the flooded farm site and place them in safe haven as a result of record flooding from the 13 inches of rain that fell in 24 hours. The only viable route off the farm was through forest roads owned by Weyerhaeuser Industries. Determined volunteers guided the passage of broodmares, yearlings, weanlings and Terry's stallion, Scandia's Carribean Blue to trailers waiting to haul her Morgans to drier, more secure stabling.
     

Friends continue to worry about the future of this sound, multi-generation breeding program and the long-term well being of a friend and breeder who is respected and admired. Terry finds herself continuing to plan for the future of these fine Morgan horses. Now, however, instead of preparing for specific matings and crosses for Blue and the existing broodmares and matings for her second generation Blue daughters, she is planning for the sale of her treasured Morgans.
  

Terry has decided that three MUST be sold. These include Dream Belladonna, Dream Blue Curacao, and the 2008 in utero foal of Scandia's Paprika ( x Scandia's Carribean Blue). Ideally, this in utero foal would be sold now and has been priced at $3500 should this be the case. The full sibling to this 2008 foal is Dream Thymeless Beauty, a beautiful and talented western and hunter pleasure mare. 
   

Belladonna (Scandia's Carribean Blue x Dream Belle Pepper), a 2007 dark brown filly, has been priced at $4000.  This beautiful filly is sensible, sensitive, very willing to please and would be a show prospect or an outstanding addition to any breeding program.
   

Curacao, a.k.a. Kid Curry, (Scandia's Carribean Blue x Scandias Paprika) a 2007 solid dark brown colt, has been described as a tall, elegant show or stallion prospect!
   

The prospects for Dream Morgan farm seem grim right now. The land and facilities have been altered to the extent that render a return to full function quite remote. The Morgan horse prospects, on the other hand, hold the key to a brighter future for the serious and discriminating buyer. Please visit www.dreammorgans.com to see photos and greater detail about the pedigrees, history, and depth of this valuable breeding program.  Kindly pass the word that these exceptional young Morgans are available for purchase.
