|May 27th, 1978 - August 24th, 2007
Penny was Sweet Promise Farm's first Morgan. Purchased in 1981 as a 3 year old, she became our foundation
broodmare. She had 7 foals for us, including our show gelding Radiance Cavalier and our current broodmare,
Radiance Copperfield. All of our mares have her in their pedigrees. She is the dam of a world champion, and a
grand-dam of a world champion. Shown only once, she and her foal Radiance Crystal Spring won the Mare and Foal
class at the Southern States Morgan Horse Show in Raleigh, North Carolina. She was broke to ride as a 3 year old and
was trail ridden throughout her broodmare career, a fabulous riding horse as well as a fabulous producer. Penny has
always had a smart and patient air about her, having the wisdom as a 3 year old that many horses never reach. She
has the perfect blend of kindness, patience and get-up-and-go that makes her a wonder horse for all that share their
lives with her. She passed these traits on to each of her foals, making them suitable to be winners and best friends
both in the ring and on the trail. Now at age 29 she is retired, spending her days out with her best friend, October
March King, and her nights in a warm stall keeping the yearlings company.
Penny was with us for 26 years, since her
three year old year. She was our foundation
broodmare, and an irreplaceable horse.
Penny was our first Morgan Horse
and is deeply missed.
