Justin Morgan Had A Horse by Marguerite Henry
Justin Morgan Had A Horse
Justin Morgan Had a Horseby Marguerite Henry is the story of the origins of the American Morgan.
In 1791 a Vermont schoolmaster by the name of Justin Morgan comes home with a two-year-old colt named Little Bub. Taken as payment for an outstanding debt the little colt doesnt seem like he is worth much but the kindly teacher asks one of his students Joel Goss to train him. Joel knows the horse has great potential and soon word about Little Bub spreads throughout the entire Northeast for his ability to outwork outrun outtrot and outwalk any horse in the area.
This is the extraordinary tale of a little workhorse who after being born in obscurity becomes one of the greatest breeding stallions of all time. In this true story Newbery Medal-winning author Marguerite Henry and artist Wesley Dennis celebrate the life of the only horse ever to establish a breed all by himself -- the Morgan.
