Who are we?

We are Laura and Jeff Ross, breeders of quality Morgan horses in South Central Kentucky specializing in the rare, endangered Lippitt Morgan. We began our journey with one Lippitt Morgan stallion, Brook Hill New Rendition, affectionately known as "Dreamer" in 2018 and have added a beautiful band of outstanding Lippitt and partial Lippitt broodmares from all over the United States as well as importing one from Canada. 

In 2019 we aquired the unique Marana Olympus, the Morgan Breed's only known grey Perlino stallion, and added a touch of color to our program. Our main mission is still to preserve the Lippitt Morgan.

Laura has been a horsewoman since her youth. She has worked at several breeding operations, including racing Thoroughbred breeding farms and Olympic-level Warmblood breeding and showing operations. Her heart has always been held by the versatile Morgan Horse. She has been fortunate to have several mentors from the Morgan breed who have offered advice and guidance on her breeding journey.

Jeff was new to the horse world, but he has a fantastic eye for Morgan type and conformation as well as a natural affinity for equines. The horses sense his trustworthiness and gravitate to him which is invaluable when raising foals to be good citizens. 

In our 4 years as breeders, we have developed a reputation of integrity and equity with our colleagues as well as our clients. The quality of horses we breed has our previous clients returning and asking for more. We will continue our standard of putting on the ground as good as or better than what we have. 

 

Our Mission
