History

Morgan Landing Farm purchased their first Morgan (Nemours Sweet Music) in 1982 from Nemours Morgan Horse Farm. Our second Morgan, Nemours Dancing Beam, a Beamington son was one of those horses that you only own once in a lifetime.  Our 12.7 acre farm is located in Townsend, DE.  The residence is a beautiful Greek Revival home built in 1840.  The stable consists of 12 stalls (10x12), a large tack room and a feed room. We have recently added a small three stall barm for our broodmares which opens up to one of our pastures.

Owners

Tom and Liz married in 1972.  In 1980 we became the proud parents of a darling little girl whom we named Alexis.  As Alexis got older it became clear that she would end up being a terrific athlete. In high school she lettered in four letter sports. Her favorite was basketball where she played at Lebanon Valley College. On September 11, 2005 Alexis and Jr. became the proud parents of Logan Joseph Armour.  Logan sat on his first horse at 2 weeks of age.

When we decided to purchase our first horse there was no doubt that it would be a Morgan.  Since 1982 we have owned 25 Morgans.  Our current Morgans are Nemours Aphrodite, UVM Glimmer, UVM Endearment, MLF Marquessa, ML’S Shock’n Y’all, Peppermill Solitude, Tara’s San Pedro, Kings Morning Sun, Springmill One More Time,Cherrydale Cantata, Wenlyn Nobl Carlin, and on February 19th of this year we had a foal born ML's American Soldier sired by World Champion Ultra's Special Agent.

Through the years Tom and Liz started the Delmarva Horse Club as well as the Delmarva Classic.  We also formed a mounted unit that represented the State of Delaware in George Bush’s inaugural parade. We have participated in many parades such as the 4th of July Parade in Washington, DC.  Although we showed at many A rated Morgan shows we also felt it necessary to show our Morgans at local shows so others could see the magnificent Morgan Horse

Alexis took time off from college to work with Burt Earehart at Heatherstone Morgans.  After leaving Heatherstone she moved to Vermont and became an apprentice at the UVM Morgan Horse Farm for 6 months.

After being in the business for over 26 years we have seen many changes in the Morgan breed.  Throughout theses changes we have always believed that the breed is big enough for everyone.  All one needs to do is look at the outstanding show ring record of UVM Glimmer to understand that Morgan Landing Farm has been very successful in the show ring.  In 2004 ML’S Shock’n Y’all was born on the farm.  Shocker’s sire is 4 time World Champion CCR’s Outrajus Corajus.  His dam is MLF Marquessa (Irish Entertainment X J’St Coastin Countess).  As a 4 yr old Shocker is looking more and more like his sire with that long neck. He now stands at 15.2 and he has a lot more growing to do. After a sucessfull 2007 show season as an English Pleasure horse, 2008 will find Shocker in both the English and Classic Pleasure division.

Morgan Landing Farms goal is to breed and promote the very best Morgans. We are proud of the fact that we train all of our own horses.  One thing is certain that when you see a Morgan from Morgan Landing Farm you can tell above all else that they are Morgans.
