- It was my privilege to attend the National Endangered Equine Summit this weekend (February 9-11, 2018) and work with many talented professionals (including breeding experts from Texas A & M and international experts), as well as representatives from many endangered breed associations and registries. It was a very well run conference facilitated by the Livestock Conservancy. I will be making a full report to the Board ( I have 19 pages of handwritten notes) and then will be updating our membership with the working plan to help ALL of our breeds/organizations.

- Another successful Lippitt Country Show has come and gone. Check the Lippitt Country Show website for results at www.lippittcountryshow.com. Thank you to all that came to show, support and volunteer for this annual show. There are not enough words to thank those who support this show by coming, financially or both. The committee for the 2018 show will be coming together soon. Please consider volunteering. There are many tasks, not all of them actually that have to take place in Vermont. So, if you are not close enough to actually be “hands on”, please consider volunteering to help promote the show on social media as well as other tasks. If you have any questions, contact Dennis Tatro at firstname.lastname@example.org. The 2018 show will be held August 10-12, 2018. Join us for fun and an enjoyable weekend.
- The Lippitt Club Board is still seeking a member to take on the position of Membership Coordinator. If you are interested in this position, please contact Claire Wagner.
The Membership Coordinator position was created to provide better communication and a more expedient annual renewal/new membership process for everyone. The renewals and new memberships for the 2018 Membership Year will be processed and forwarded to the Directory Committee to allow the Directory to go out in a timely manner.
The Board is now seeking a Lippitt Club member to step into the position by mid-Summer to allow them to be familiar with the computer programs used for Membership and steps in the process in time for the November to January renewals. A full description of this position was printed in an earlier newsletter and is available from Claire Wagner. If you are interested, please all or email any Board member.

- Recognition as an Endangered Horse:
The Lippitt Morgan is now on two organizations’ endangered list. For those that love the “classic” Morgan, this is a tragedy. The numbers of Morgans, including Lippitt Morgans has gone down each year for the last 10 years. The number of people breeding Lippitts (and other “families” in the Morgan breed) has gone down also due to the economy. If you love the Morgan and love the original traits that made the Morgan such a special horse, the Lippitt is for you. Join us to learn about the Lippitt Morgan and help preserve these wonderful horses.
The Lippitt Club, Inc. is now a proud sponsor of The Livestock Conservancy. To learn more, please visit their website or Facebook page.
The Morgan breed was started with a single stallion – Figure, also known as Justin Morgan. The Lippitt Club strives to preserve and promote the original Morgan horse.
