Foundation Morgan Horse Type
"The term 'baroque' is used to describe horses of Spanish
Barb origin, such as the Andalusian, Lipizzan, etc., that
have round body contours and the neck on top of the shoulder
that give them an elegant, collected stance, and they are
more powerful than a more slender bodied horse of more angular
build. Most certainly Morgans of "original type"
of the old Morgan bloodlines fit into this conformation type."
