To read a lot about Vanguard, and his owner, Clark Ringling, Google "Clark Ringling Lovelock, Nevada a history". Mr. Ringling produced Morgan horses and beef cattle deep in the Nevada desert---a very long way from any town. Between the early 1900's and the 1950's he used five excellent Morgan stallions---including two which were bred at the U.S. Morgan Horse Farm in Weybridge, Vermont, two bred in Illinois, and one in Nebraska.
