Joe-Joe, she’s a little low in the back (lordosis), as Boo is. Probably the ASB in her. Very few of today’s Morgans go straight back to old Justin Morgan. Owners wanted more animation and a longer neck, and as result the registry was open to ASBs for a few years. Unfortunately a low back correlates with a lot of front end action, and I know of at least one ASB breeders whose stud was low in the back. What’s the hitch in her gait? Morgans are generally acknowledged to be less flighty than ASBs, so you will probably be able to walk her around the facilities quietly. I can do that with Boo. Most of the time!
