Up Hyre Morning Glory

1994 Bay mare.  Regional pleasure driving champion at the NY Morgan

Purchased as a two year old broodmare prospect, Up Hyre Morning Glory represents the best of Jack Boyd Smith's breeding program at Up Hyre Morgan Farm.  Out of the fine mare, Rapidan Early Dawn and by the undeniably beautiful black stallion, Ultimate Command, Glory is a wonderful representative of the modern Morgan with the breed's classic disposition.  Her pedigree is chocked full of mares with reputations for being excellent producers.  It was our hope that she would follow in the hoof-steps of these "Grand Dams" in the breeding shed.  She has not disappointed us!  Glory has demonstrated similar talents by producing high quality offspring for us here at Teaka Creek!

Truly an awesome mare, Glory embodies the word "versatility".  Before breeding her, we believed she should be trained and have her chance to prove herself - not only in the show ring, but also in other areas as well.  In addition to several halter wins over her show career, as only a two-year-old, she captured a regional championship in pleasure driving at the New York Morgan. After retiring from the show ring, she went on to be a dependable trail horse and even worked as a mounted police horse in the Chautauqua County Sheriff's Mounted Police Division!  With these accomplishments, we realized she was truly an exceptional mare with an excellent mind and a great work ethic.  She has been passing on this wonderful disposition and versatile nature to all of her foals. With one look at her offspring, you can see for yourself her track record when bred to HollyBrook Braveheart.  We have come to consider this our "golden" and "cookie-cutter cross", as time and time again, she has produced one gorgeous foal after another.  Trimmed in chrome, these babies are eye-catching with their flashy, beautiful heads.  They command people's attention with their elegance and correctness.  In addition, they are very intelligent, so they are "quick studies". Easily trained and very willing, these foals have gone on to be enjoyed by amateur owners.

Glory is in her teens now, and we desperately want a filly from her that, in the future, we can breed to our stallion, HollyBrook Braveheart.  Therefore, we have decided to breed her to outside stallions in the hopes of getting a filly worthy of carrying on her legacy.  It is difficult to know how long it will take for us to accomplish this, so it is anyone's guess as to when we will once again cross Glory to Braveheart.  If you like what she has produced to date, we would encourage you to contact us about her 2008 foal, as it will be for sale.  The next one might not be.

So, in light of this fact, we would like to announce our stallion pick for 2009!  Glory will be bred to Bocelli (Beethoven X Sioux's Hot Tamale) for a 2009 foal!  We were very impressed with the foals he has produced to date.  He carries bloodlines very different from what we have here on the farm, and we feel he will be an excellent outcross. Bocelli complements Glory very nicely, so we look forward to what they will produce together next spring!
