How fortunate we were to have the opportunity to acquire
such a great stallion as Adiel's Stetson. Stetson is a 100%
Sweets bred stallion who was bred by Gail and Marlene Neilson
of Adiels Morgans in Kansas. Gail sold Stetson as a young
horse and through some research and searching I found Stetson.
When I found out Stetson was up for sale I knew Stetson had
to come home to Kansas. Stetson is like "family" to us. Our
entire herd consists of the line behind Stetson. We use this
line because they have proven their worth as "using" animals,
be it in harness or under saddle. This is an honest line with
all of the traits we look for in a good horse; high trainability,
intelligence and honesty.
Stetsonīs pedigree consists of linebred Herod lines. He
is one of the few Morgans today that trace back to Archie
O/Herod without carrying Lippitt lines. Stetson is also double
Classy Boy/Condo and the AAA racing mare Chuckanut Hacienda.
Stetson offers Old Midwest Foundation lines coupled with beauty,
type, bone, substance, trainability, usability, smooth movement
and boldness. Under saddle Stetson is the image of the old
time Vaquero's mount or General's mount; black, baroque and
Acquiring Stetson was more then exciting for us. We purchased
Stetson on the "merits" of his blood and his family. I was
not disappointed. He is one of the kindest stallions I have
ever known. He has a lovely kind eye which portrays his great
intelligence. He has inherited his mothers "dramatic" personality.
If there are any opinions at the farm they are always expressed
through Stetson. He always has a twinkle in his eye and when
excited he bounces up and down like a pogo stick. He is so
fun to watch. I have to admit I love to go into his pen and
play with him. He is no doubt a "Drama King". He will tear
around all puffed up, full of himself and just expressing
the joys of life. My Stetson, like his dam and siblings, are
on a different plain of intelligence. They just seem to "know",
intelligence so great it could be compared to a boarder collie.
Easy to train, wanting to please and always "knowing". Stetson
is a "rare" find and I am so blessed that he is now part of
