Gaited Morgans smooth as glass for the glide of your life! And as a bonus, naturally gaited Jellico Gaited Morgans come in a rainbow of rare colors: Perlino; Cremello; and Splash White Gene. Plus the common colors of chestnut, black, palomino, bay and grey.
Our goal is to produce only even four beat Gaited Morgans for sale who are naturally gaited from birth performing the saddle rack, rack and running walk. More detailed gait explanations including visual and verbal descriptions are available on the website http://gaitedmorgansassociation.com
Our Gaited Morgan horses have the noted Morgan temperaments and train ability. We stand Gaited Morgan Stallions, or you can choose from one of our carefully planned Gaited Morgan foals.
As an aid in achieving our breeding goal of producing even four beat Gaited Morgans, but not our sole consideration will include using the SynchroGait Gene Test offered by UC Davis. This DNA gene results can be used predict odds of various combinations gait of offspring as shown in the below table. The DNA test will ID the horse’s gait genes as one of the following three. Homozygous A/A — the horse will perform ambling and lateral gaits. Heterozygous A/C — the horse will perform lateral gaits. Homozygous C/C — the horse will perform the walk, trot and canter. This is explained in greater detail in the article. http://www.capiletgenetics.com/en/dna-2
AA x AA = 100% of the offspring will be AA
CA x AA = 50% will be AA and 50% will be CA
CA x CA = 25% will be AA, 50% will be CA, 25% will be CC
CA x CC = 50% will be CC and 50% will be CA
AA x CC = 100% will be CA
CC x CC = 100% will be CC
