It was known that Justin Morgan
settled somewhere on the Randolph, Brookfield town line, but no one has ever found the
exact location, until now! To me, finding this location would give the story of the Morgan Horse in
Vermont a new beginning and explain why history played out as it did for this breed of
horse. This would be the location of where Morgan and his family came to, where they
lived, where his wife died, a spot that he brought his colt home to, where this one of a
kind colt roamed, worked and raced. It would be the location that marks the beginning of
the Morgan Horse in Vermont.
