THE LAMBERT MORGANS OF QUIETUDE

DANIEL LAMBERT

THE ORIGIN OF THE LAMBERT FAMILY
DANIEL LAMBERT

During the 1800's the
Lambert family was the most respected, well known and admired Morgan family in existence. During the 1900's it would have disappeared but for J.C. Brunk who rescued it from extinction. Then came Francis Bryant who continued Mr. Brunk's Lambert breeding program. Now, the Lambert family represents a history of some hundred years of diligent breeding by Brunk, Bryant and the Hanleys

HEWING TO THE LINE

CRITERION
"Criterion reminded one hauntingly of the ancient woodcuts of his famous ancestors, old Justin and Sherman in particular. His bearing was regal, confidant, commanding. His form was muscular, smoothly-rounded, each part in perfectly-balanced proportion. When in motion he was arresting, exhibiting spectacular extension at the trot, displaying daunting power as he drove forward off his hocks, mesmerizing onlookers as he floated over the ground."

CRITERION: THE CONTEMPORY FOUNDATION LAMBERT FAMILY SIRE FOR
THE QUIETUDE STUD

"Such a rich treasure of bloodlines you have! It is always a treat to go to your page and compare your horses, I think you have achieved a more consistent type that is true to the rare old Morgan bloodlines than most other breeding programs combined - yet they are all so unique and each has their own special beauty! And all are marked not only as clearly Lambert but strongly bear Criterion's stamp."

JUSTIN MORGAN

JUSTIN MORGAN FOUNDER OF THE MORGAN BREED

While his true origins remain hidden in history, Figure is thought to have been sired by True Briton, a horse widely respected for his excellence and known as a sire of quality horses. Figure's dam, was "...of the Wild-air breed, of middling size, with a heavy chest, of a light bay color, with a bushy mane and tail - the hair on the legs rather long, and a smooth, handsome traveler." His ability to outwalk, outtrot, outrun, and outpull other horses were legendary. His stud services were offered throughout the Connecticut River Valley and various Vermont locations over his lifetime. However, his most valuable asset was the ability to pass on his distinguishing characteristics, not only to his offspring, but through several generations.

DANIEL LAMBERT FOUNDER OF THE LAMBERT FAMILY
Historical description of Danie Lambert
Written in 1911 by Charles H. Willamson VT under oath.

I remember Daniel Lambert very well;—saw him when he died; he would stand about 15 hands, and he looked quite big when harnessed; would weigh about 1000,—would have to be pretty fat to weigh much more than that; he had fine style and beauty and was a square trotter; he founded a distinct family that would run all the way from 14.1 to 15 hands; they were horses of substance and you would think they were all trotters; were as good gaited as you could pick out; I don’t know that I ever saw a pacer of the old Black Hawk breed; I don’t remember any Morgan horses that were pacers, they were all trotters.
Speaking of all these horses, their enduring road qualities were good; you never could drive them so far in one day but what you could get them back the next; the Lamberts have shown at fairs all through the Valley, and always have carried off the blue ribbon.

Read the original oath written more than 100 years ago.

JUBIEE KING
(Penrod x Daisette)

 

JUBILEE KING THE CONDUET OF ALL LAMBERTS MORGANS
Jubilee King needs no introduction as he is noted throughout the country, having been used at stud in the West for so many years and being the sire of so many "pretty" Morgans, most of them with flaxen mane and tail. KING knew he was on exhibition and when led out by Mr. Wyma n took his place on the bank overlooking the rivers and almost said "Here I am." Next came SPRINGFIELD, who was raised from a colt by Mrs. Bryant. He is sired by Lippitt Sam by Ashbrook and out of Paragraph. He is a grandson of Jubilee King. A young son of King, named JUBILEE'S COURAGE, who is coming five, presented a beautiful picture of a Morgan. He has the flaxen mane and tail. His dam is Townshend Lass by John A . Darling.

1949 AD FOR JUBILEE KING
