Hi there. To save a long conversation I am looking for two of my old horses, melinda and her sister morgan.

When my grandad sold Melinda she was sold back to the stud we got her from. Marbon Stud. Her name was Marbon Melinda. I cant seem to get hold of the Marbon stud to find out information. I have been told that she may have died when foaling. She must be around 11-12 now.

Morgan got sold to another lady when she was a foal. She should be around 7-8years old now. The last I new she was ment to be at the stables called "Newbarn" In Porstlade but there is no sign of her. I have asked around and looked everywhere for her local but there is still no sign of her.

We had both of Melinda and Morgans mother Rosie (Roslinda) on loan when she was in foal with Morgan. I do have photos but they are very blurred. Morgan could be anywhere! Please if you have seen her then let me know.

Morgan: Chestnut Arab Mare, around 7-9years old, Big white blaze down her face, two white stockings/socks on the hind legs and a white little mark on the front right of her leg on her knee.

Melinda- Chestnut Arab Mare, around 11-13years old, Big white blaze down her face, three white stockings/socks, two on her hinds and one on her front left.

Please if you have any information on them then please let me know!!

When my Grandad sold her she was about 2-3years old. I was only 9 at the time. She will be around 7 now. She is a chestnut arab mare (Crabbet). She has three white socks and a big nice blaze. Her mother is called Roselinda (Amboseli/Lindora) and her sisters name is Marbon Melinder. I have emailed Marbon stud to find information out about Melinder as one time she also belonged to us. I am now 17 and looking to see how my old horses are doing!

I do have photos but they are very blurred. I will get more photos from my Grandad this weekend!!

I have PM'd you with information.
I would like to know what happened to the one you call Morgan as that was your grandfather's property I think out of Roselinda for looking after the horses for me.

Roselinda had one other filly known as Marbon Medina; she was sold as a yearling and bought back by us as a 5 year old; she won at her first Arab Show in 2008 and has since been sold to a lovely home in Hampshire. I will try and get my daughter to put a pic up for you of her. Roselinda also had a colt in 2006 called Marbon Medallion by Amlan (Ibn Estopa/Amellita Bint Lavado).
I believe that he may now have been gelded and sold on again.
It is the one you call Morgan that I have no record of.

i knew Morgan when i was at New Barn Farm in Portslade, and I also knew Keith when he had the others, as i was head girl at the riding school/livery yard he kept them at. I knew your grandad too. Morgan turned up at New Barn and belonged to a girl probably in her twenties who was worried that she wouldnt make the height or size for her to be ridden, and that she may have to sell her on. She didnt stay long at the yard, - maybe a few months. Lovely little filly, very fine.

I can picture the girl, but i cant remember her name. I will try some people at New Barn to see if they remember her. Or i could give you the farmers name that runs New Barn to see if he kept records of her details when she had the filly there.
How is Keith these days? - hope he is doing ok.

I have been to Newbarn there as i got my new horse from Newbarn. She is no longer there and no-one knows of her. It would be very, very helpful if you would be able to contact the owner of Newbarn to see if he has contacts or information about her. Thank you very much, I am also going to contact the AHS to see if she has been registered. It is such a pain that she has been moved around, or even sold on. Yes Keith is fine, he has moved out Kent now and is running a bar out there with his partner. Thank you very much for getting back to me. :) x

Let me see what I can do - it was a while ago, but someone might remember. The farmer that runs New Barn is not massively helpful, but I may be able to get a response from some of the Arab people that were on the yard at the same time. It wouldnt surprise me if she had been sold on or loaned out, as the girl did say at the time she didnt think Morgan would mature to a big enough riding horse for her.

Anyway - have pm'ed you as well. :-)

Really pleased to hear Keith is doing ok!

I have checked Datasource and it seems Roselinda had another daughter in 1999 by Di's other stallion Marbon Maestro - she was registered as Marbon Meganne - could this have been said/pronounced in such a way as to be passed around as Morgan perhaps?

Unfortunately Meganne is not on allbreedpedigree and Datasource does not record owners etc - you would have to try and get some help from the AHS. They are not usually willing to give current owner details out these days due to Data Protection rules but might be willing to pass on a message asking the person to get in touch with you.

I don't know if this helps at all.

I spoke to Diane on the phone last night, and she has said for me to ring the AHS to see if she ws registered, this name could be a possibility, because we was wondering who the stalion was, eaither Marbon Maestro, or El Sharluke. Do you have any other information about the filly from 1999? Diane and me thought it was 1998 that Morgan was born, but 1999 would kind of make sence as well seeing as it was around that time. Is there any more information for example what she looked like etc? I am going to ring the AHS on monday to see what they say. Hopefully if I give them my details the owner of Morgan will be able to contact me. I hope and dream anyways!!! Thankyou very much!! xx

Hi there,

Well Marbon Meganne 1999 (Marbon Maestro - Roselinda) must have been registered or she wouldn't be on Datasource - unlike allbreedpedigree, AHR's Datasource is created from the official stud book records of the various registries rather than being input by individuals. That doesn't mean they NEVER input a name, year or colour slightly wrong but it is very rare. Full description of markings etc is not included, however, and although American breeders have the facility to add photos if they are the registered owner of the horse, that service does not extend to non-American registered Arabians. Meganne is registered as bred by Di Ellis, but no further information on ownership is included for non-American horses again.

Sorry I can't add any further light on this.

Now i know who your new horse is (what a small world!) - i'll get SallyAnn to speak to the farmer re: seeing if we can get a phone number from the contract records for the girl who had Morgan/Meganne. It would be great if we can track her down, for both you and Di.

Lol,thank you Elspeth and Ethena. Elspeth - I have spoken to Antonia before and she said that there has never been a chestnut arab down Newbarn for the whole time she has been there? But maybe she has forgotten about her? May just need a jog of the memory lol. I have told Keith that you have said hello and you hope he is well lol! :)

Antonia would have been too young to remember probably, and she hadnt started her love of Arabs at that point, so probably wouldnt have noticed anyway! There are 120 horses on that yard, so a fair few to get to know. I remember chatting to the owner, and we discussed the fact that the filly had belonged to Keith, and the link with myself working at Southdown when he had the other two there. It was definitely her - whether she was called Morgan or Meganne.. She just wasnt at the yard very long for anyone to get to know either her or her owner.

In that case, i may well have taught you when you were little!

Right - I have just had text confirmation from my friend Lisa that she was definitely called Megan, the girl that owned her also had a cob called Fern, and i have the tel number of Jenny on the yard who is/was friends with Megans owner, so i am just praying i can solve this one for you and get you (and Di) back in touch with the mare.

i've emailed you a pic of Tsar too, so you can see Rosie's half brother.!

Thank you Elspeth. I spoke to Antonia last night and she was so shocked that I new you. (Although on from on here really) but how your friends with my uncle as well. Yes when I used to have lessons at Southdowns I was so small, that whenever I tried to kick Pelly on my legs came out to the side haha, just underneath the saddle. I used to be really quite and shy?? The instuctor always used to ask me what I wanted to do but I was to shy to say anything haha! I can remember two young girls teaching me, maybe you, but after you (or another girl) left it was a girl called Kelly that used to teach me? Can always remember it from up there lol. Thank you for the email. So the new girl that bought Morgan called her Meganne??:S Hopefully will be in touch soon! And the girl wont mind me ringing her or something lol, getting a little scared now. :) Thank you so much Elspeth. x

Hi Danni,

Just to clarify, if this is Roselinda's 1999 daughter by Marbon Maestro, her registered name has always been Marbon Meganne - it must have been your own family that decided to use "Morgan" as her stable name. It is not unusual to have a difference between registered name and name in common use of course - my own mares go by "Madam" and "Magic" at home but their registered names are either totally different or just longer respectively. Good luck with tracking her down anyway.

Hiya.

Yeah we named her Morgan, but I wasnt too sure if she had been registered, but it turns out that she has. We have also found out that her name has now been changed to Megan. And now know that she is hopefully around Hastings area. Just hope that the owner still has the same phone number and wont mind me going to see her! Thank you ever so much!!
