"These are Morgans whose sireline goes directly back to Sherman Morgan and Justin Morgan through Daniel Lambert and whose ancestors trace back on every branch of the pedigree to the foundation horses in Volume I of the Morgan Horse and Register and none of whose ancestors were registered under Rule 2. These are high-percentage animals. Criterion's pedigree has been computed and he has more than 20% of Figure's blood....

Francis Bryant was dispersing her herd and the only stallion she had retained was a twelve-year-old grandson of Jubilee King. As they tell it, Susan and Shannon Hanley took one look at Criterion standing in his stall looking back at them, and from that moment on no other horses in the world existed for them.

'There was an aloof and lordly grandeur about him,' Shannon remembers....Once we saw Criterion, that image was engraved in our minds. His Sherman form is the focus of our breeding program."

With nine close crosses to Daniel Lambert, Criterion is the culmination of a quest carried on by Francis Bryant and J.C. Brunk before her to preserve the precious sireline and blood of Daniel Lambert.
