GAITED MORGAN MARES
Jellico Gaited Morgans
Mares are pride and joy of our breeding program.
WNS Virginian shown in following photo at age 22.
WNS Virginian or his full sibling WNS Autumn Velvet are found in six of our eight mares.
JELLICO TWILIGHT MORN
2012 Palomino Mare – (Silvershoe Sundance x Mary Mels Music) PEDIGREE
This is the third sibling from this combination. She is strongly gaited and a beauty to behold in gait. SynchroGait DNA test for genetic Gait Variant (A) showed her to be A/A homozygous for the ambling and lateral gaits.
JELLICO IRISH ROSE
(WNS Virginian x Silvershoe Spice) PEDIGREE
2004 Chestnut Mare
SynchroGait DNA tested AA homozygous for gait. This lovely chestnut mare was retained to replace her dam. Abby’s pedigree combines the best of original old Gaited Morgan blood to produce a horse which looks like the proverbial statement “poetry in motion”. Since the loss of her wonderful sire, this mare is doubly important. She just shouts “I am one of those special Gaited Morgans!” This nice mare proves Virginian was truly a sire of special Gaited Morgans.
JELLICO SUMMER MORN
(WNS Virginian x WNS Touchstone) PEDIGREE
2004 Chestnut Mare
This lovely chestnut mare was repurchased to get another WNS Virginian mare back and to replace the loss of her very special dam WNS Touchstone. Tess’s pedigree combines the best of original old Gaited Morgan blood to produce a horse which gaits are lovely to watch or ride. She is a joy to be around with the noted Morgan temperament and “look at me” attitude. Since the loss of her wonderful sire, this mare is doubly important. She just shouts “Come ride me I am one of those special Gaited Morgans!” This nice mare like her half sister Jellico Irish Rose proves Virginian was truly a sire of special Gaited Morgans.
(DIA H Paladin x Millenimum Gold) PEDIGREE
2007 Perlino Mare
SynchroGait DNA tested: CA heterozygous for gait. This very rare perlino mare is from two of the oldest Gaited Morgan breeding programs of the last forty years–DIA H and Mary Mel. She will only produce colored foals. Height 14.2 +, epitome of noted Morgan temperament, tractability and conformation.
(Silvershoe Sundance x Mary Mels Music) PEDIGREE
2010 Chestnut Mare
A beautiful, feminine duplicate of her dam, exquisite strongly Gaited Morgan standing about 15 3.
G MYSTIC TATIANA
(Ragtime Deja Blu x G Mystic Bay Reflection) PEDIGREE
2014 Buckskin – homozygous black EE, Aa, nCR Mare
G Mystic Tatiana was bred by the Gregor’s –G Mystical Morgans. Tatiana was Synchro Gait Gene tested AA homozygous. You can read about the DNA test results at http://gaitedmorgans.com/aboutgaitedmorgans.php Her future size, gaiting ability, temperament, color and conformation are all pluses.
(Mary Mels Brandy x Sky Sadie) PEDIGREE
2007 Gaited Palomino Mare
Skylight came to Jellico Farms in a round about way. Alice Rossington back in 2006 contacted Jellico Farms. During the discussion it was suggested she contact Brent about a couple possible mares. She purchased Skylight’s dam from Brent in 2006. Recently Alice again contacted us and asked about interest in Sadie. We were unaware there was Skylight. We left messages for a couple Gaited Morgan breeders. Bar None followed up and contacted Alice about Sadie. Later I was told by Bar None there was a second mare. I looked at the pedigree and saw several interesting points. I do not normally like the breeding of half siblings to each other, but this breeding included a heavy concentration of WNS. The WNS horse noted by most is Windenstone, but we owned WNS Virginian and have some of his offspring and grand get. WNS Virginian seemed to bring qualities to the other noted breeding of Jan Mabie Pace. Skylight’s potential combinations include our 100% outside stallion Westwind Joaquin and 99.8% outside blood of Eastwest Yonder. Plus we have upcoming stallions like Jellico Creme De La Creme and Jellico El Dorado which might be interesting combinations.
SKY Vanilla Spice
(Mary Mels Brandy x Mary Mels swinger) PEDIGREE
2008 Gaited Palomino Mare
Spice like her half sister Skylight are interesting adds to our breeding program since the Grand Sire of Mary Mels Brandy was WNS Virginia. Thus these mares allow the continue inclusion of the old WNS blood of Dr. Kifer which was a major part of the old time Utah Gaited Morgan breeding.
