What Is THE SILVER DAPPLE MORGANS PROJECT?

Researching and writing about the bloodlines responsible for the various colors present in Morgans is one of my favorite pastimes. For many years I had suspected that the silver gene existed in the breed, and one of the horses who fueled that suspicion was a mare named Orcland Youlenda.

At the 2000 AMHA Convention held in Atlanta, Nancy Caisse of Townshend Farm presented a slide show of historical Morgans from the New England area. In her presentation was a color slide of Youlenda's dam, Paleface (Squire Burger, chestnut X Zona Skinner, registered as chestnut but now known to have actually been a silver dapple). The mare was clearly a bay silver! I was very excited to see this picture as it confirmed my belief that silver had indeed been present at one time in the breed. The question was, did it still exist- or had the gene died out?

The answer came in February 2002 when Zeulner's Sunka Wakan became the first confirmed (via the Red Factor test) silver dapple Morgan. While silver Mo
rgans are very rare - there are less than eighty verified silver dapple Morgans alive at present- we now know they DO still exist!

The purpose of the SDMP is to collect pictures and information on known silver dapple lines in the Morgan, to further knowledge and awareness of the color in our breed, and to discover previously unknown sources of silver in Morgan pedigrees. It is hoped that by sharing this information, more silver dapple Morgans will be identified. -Laura Behning
