Dam: LACEY (QH) 

Breeder: Cindy Morgan, Mount Pleasant Stallion Station

There have been several people in the Arabian horse industry that have played an instrumental role in my education of the breed. One of the foremost is Gari Dill-Marlow. Before ever meeting her in person, we had many conversations via letters, e-mail, online forums, and phone calls. I had long admired her deep knowledge and insight into the Arabian horse, especially the Crabbet Arabian. The horses of Caelliotts Magic Arabians (Gari's breeding program) always fascinated me. When I had the opportunity to meet them - and Gari - in person, it was like a dream come true for me!

 

In several visits to see Gari and her horses, I also developed a friendship with another incredible breeder - Cindy Morgan of Mount Pleasant Stallion Station. Gari's horses were living at Mount Pleasant when I met them. From the first time I was introduced to Cindy, she was so genuine and welcoming! She too had some of the most stunningly beautiful Arabian horses I have ever seen. Cindy is MP Annika's breeder, whom I affectionately called Mia Dolce, "My Sweet."

Mia is a big girl! She was already over 15 hands when she came to me as a long yearling. As a two-year-old, she was larger than any of my full-grown purebreds! A true beauty, Mia captured my heart with her kind disposition and truly incredible eyes. Though she was only with me a short time, the lasting impression she left on my heart remains.
