A Brief History

Mary Mel Morgans was established by our grandfather, Mel Frandsen in  1967. In the 1960s and 1970s, he began breeding and showing his horses all around the western United States with his family, where he had much success. In time, he began to shift his focus from the show ring to developing his breeding program to include gaited Morgans. Some of his most well-known horses include the following: Stellar, Omar Sheriff, Wingo, Cleo-Patricia, Estrelita and many others.

In 2007, Mel suffered a stroke that inhibited his ability to continue his breeding program that he had spent so much time perfecting. We were able to keep several mares and a stallion that we used to continue the great legacy that he made.
