QUIETUDE CANDLELIGHT (Quietude Merit x Quietude Coralee)

THE STORY
Candlelight left Quietude as a two-year-old with a young couple who were later to divorce. She was twice auctioned off and faced the danger of yet another auction. With the help of our friends
Sara Lockwood and Heidi Grimditch she came back to her
Quietude birthplace. Candlelight arrived here in excellent condition with her legs and herself in perfect shape.


Candlelight had been in good hands. Her former owner told us that his son had been driving her to his fiance's home every weekend for over a year. It was 26 miles each way, uphill and down at a ground coverting fast trot and he knew in the night when they were returning from the sound of her steady, balanced gait.
Candlelight will never leave Quietude again.

KATI GREETS THE NEWBORN FILLY
Quietude Olympia's first foal is born. It is a happy 'birth' day for Brian and Kati Hillukka and their girls!
"The filly is doing well, she has no name, maybe Moonlight? (Right now, the moon is very bright) Olympia is giving lots of milk. The filly shows calm curiosity around equipment and she comes to investigate any noise. She now follows Kati and me when we call and she really likes people." Brian Hillukka MN


MAYBE MOONLIGHT?
(These girls better find a real name for her soon!)
It is great having horses and it will be exciting to see what Tahiti delivers..."


UPDATE:
Tahiti delivers another filly and she shares her new baby with her 'other' girls.

QUIETUDE DARIUS (Quietude Indian Summer x Quietude Honor Bright)

I wanted you both to know how wonderful and well Darius is!! Each winter that I have had him, I have sent him to HighOver Morgans in Elliot, Maine for training with one of the best trainers in New England. He is boarded there and trained for 3 months each year when the winter conditions preclude me being able to ride him. They have a huge indoor arena for riding & driving lessons. He is doing exceptionally well in both areas of training and I have bought a beautiful (Amish built) cart for him with a full handmade Harness (by David LaSalle) who is known as one of the best! Darius is confident and happy….he has learned many new skills and is a confident Morgan Horse in both riding and driving. Every one at HighOver farm loves him. His trainer is Kass Booth who both trains and shows her own Morgans.
I feel so priveledged to have Darius and to be able to afford to have him trained by the best! He will always be taken care of with love and Kass has agreed to be his caretaker if something happens to me! I hope and pray that this message reaches you so that you know of his health, training and good fortune! You and Shannon gave me the opportunity to make my childhood dream of having a horse of my own come true. I thank you both from the bottom of my grateful heart! My love to you. Penny Busher MA

ELAINE HAYES 'ON A VERY FINE DRESSAGE MORGAN '
QUIETUDE SENECA ROCKS UPDATE
Seneca won every class he entered at the Southern States Regional Morgan Show -- two at Training Level and two at First Level -- and he was High Score Horse for all the Training Level horses and for all the First Level horses! If we were there tonight, he'd be trotting into the big State Fair arena to accept his awards!
So proud of him!

QUIETUDE SENECA ROCKS
(Quietude Calcutta x Quietude Kindle)
Seneca was trained to drive as a three year old, and spent his four and five year old summers as a trail horse extraordinaire in the hills of West Virginia. During the winters, he continued his basic dressage training with Elaine Hayes of Lake Norman Dressage, Mooresville, NC. This past fall, Elaine said that she saw the makings of a fine dressage pony in my trail buddy. He reminded her, she said of her Grand Prix warmblood Wrendezvous (Reggie). Seneca has a great work ethic, super self-carriage, and three strong gaits. Results at his first show have justified Elaine's confidence--A final shout-out to Quietude Seneca Rocks and his remarkable trainer Elaine Hayes. This weekend, Seneca was entered in his first dressage competition -- a USDF open show in Tryon, NC. With Elaine up, he scored a 75+, a 72+, a 71+, and a 63,+, earning a first place and three third places against quality competition. Three scores of 70% plus in his first-ever show are simply brilliant. Thanks, Elaine, for bringing him along so correctly and seeing the potential in this little Morgan!

QUIETUDE TAMBOURINE (Quietude Rio de Oro x Quietude Brittany)
Carrie Mcmullen up.
ALL IN THE FAMILY
Anne was riding Tambourine and a friend was riding Anne's horse in Chatfield State Park near Littleton, Colorado. The friend had never ridden Tambourine before and Anne asked her if she wanted to ride her and take her over a small jump. Tambourine LOVES to jump and Anne hasn't done that before, so the friend said, sure, I'll take her over a small jump.


Anne had her old cellphone and just aimed it at the tree and pushed the button several times, hoping to capture a good picture....She is not a photographer, but she did capture Tambourine flying! The friend wasn't in the "proper" position as she didn't expect her to jump so high!

Tambourine has shared with a wonderful woman who visits her that she wants to have Pegasus written on her saddle pad:)

UPDATE FOR TAMBOURINE

Hello my name is Carrie Mcmullen and I recently purchased Quietude Tambourine from Norma Jean and Dick Garbrick in Franktown CO. I am Norma Jean's great niece and was THRILLED to purchase Tambourine! I was just wanting to let you know that I am the current owner of Tambourine and would like to stay included in your list of owners and the catalog you send out on occasion. I am so happy to have her in my life and she brings me such joy ;)
Thank you for giving me such an amazing girl!

HAWK SHADOW BREEZE A Grandson of Criterion
I wanted to share a picture with you of my Morgan gelding I got 2 years ago. He is now 10 and the best Morgan I've ever had! His name is Hawk Shadow Breeze ( Hawkeye) and he is out of Jonah Morgan and Jada Breezy Hawk. Jonah Morgan is out of Cameron of Quietude. Hawkeye is 14.3, solid as a rock and very athletic. Best of all he has a great brain and wants to learn and please. He came to me green as grass and has proven himself time and time again on the trail, in the ring and while doing hunter paces. He is fearless. I live in NH and ride a lot in VT, with many, many Morgans. Everywhere we go we get compliments, usually to the tune of " they don't build them like that anymore! Where can I get one like him? " Here are a few pictures of him learning to jump ( he loves it)!
Thanks for breeding his grand sire! If Hawkeye is any indication of the type of horse you breed, my next Morgan is coming straight from you! .... PS. I am 5 ft 9, you can see he takes up a lot of leg! Karen Jameson
FROM VERMONT

CRITERION'S SPIRIT (Quietude Steeplechase x Quietude Cascade)
Spirit continues to exceed my expectations! Here he has his new harness, new string of bells and pulling three adults. All new to him yet he's not concerned one bit!! Love that horse! Jeannine Eaton, VT

UPDATE
Susan, we have a new puppy. When we first got her she wouldn't even go near the horse pens, a couple weeks later........look whos atop the most wonderful horse in the world!!!!! Spirit is so easy going and accepts anything I ask of him, neither of them had any reservations about doing this!!!! The trust I have gained with these two is remarkable, enjoy!

HEWING TO THE LINE / THE ANCIENT LOOK LIVES ON
VIDEO TAKEN IN 1991
CRITERION
WAS THIRTY-YEARS-OLD
"Criterion reminded one hauntingly of the ancient woodcuts of his famous ancestors, old Justin and Sherman in particular. His bearing was regal, confidant, commanding. His form was muscular, smoothly-rounded, each part in perfectly-balanced proportion. When in motion he was arresting, exhibiting spectacular extension at the trot, displaying daunting power as he drove forward off his hocks, mesmerizing onlookers as he floated over the ground."

During the 1800's the Lambert family was the most respected, well known and admired Morgan family in existence. During the 1900's it would have disappeared but for J.C. Brunk who rescued it from extinction. Then came Francis Bryant who continued Mr. Brunk's Lambert breeding program. Now, the Lambert family represents a history of some hundred years of diligent breeding by Brunk, Bryant and the Hanleys."
BRENDA TIPPIN CA Noted Morgan Historian.

Recently Marcie Spreen scanned, filed and put in folders hundreds of photographs taken of Lamberts from 1974 -- 1988. Some of these images are historical and pre -1974. Many that have never been seen before are now archived and salvaged for the future of the Lambert family.
