There is probably no other Morgan name that commands more instant recognition and appreciation than TUG HILL COMMANDO. Purchased in fall of his birth year as an outcross for the Treble’s mares, he remained under the watchful eyes of Carol and co-owners Drs. Jerome and Shirley Modell throughout his life, and crossed over the Rainbow Bridge just down the road under the loving care of Cheri Barber Stables, where he lived with his lifetime trainer/handler. From his exquisite beauty to his dozens of World Champion foals, he singlehandedly raised the bar to which all other stallions of his generation aspired to attain. His “Golden Cross” on the Willy Wild daughters (many of whom were out of daughters of Quaker’s Acre Treble) quickly put Treble’s Morgan manor on the map and became the gold standard for Morgan type, character and quality. The 20 plus year reign of Commando sons and daughters both in the show ring as well as the breeding shed is a full chapter of Morgan history. While Commando is sadly no longer with us, we maintain a limited supply of viable frozen semen for the future.

Commando was the first foal of Fiddler’s Majesta, the Hall of Fame broodmare who produced such notable breeding and show ring champions as Tug Hill Whamunition, Tug Hill Alibi, LCS Fortune Smiles and Cabot Custom Made. Together with his 3/4 brother Whamunition, this wellspring of blood has garnered more World Champion titles to their family than any other contemporary Morgan family.
