Ethan Allen (1849-1876) was considered one of the greatest stallions foaled in the United States, and his legacy survives in the bloodlines of all Morgans. He was a popular subject for Currier & Ives, who engraved his image alone and in harness. These images were the inspiration for many period horse weathervanes.
