This guy sure made his mark in the Midwest. He has produced 127 registered foals. There are 22 stallions, 72 mares, and 33 geldings. He was trained and shown exclusively by Harlan at Morgan and Open shows, parades, team penning, and other competitions. The crowd could not believe he was a stallion because of his quiet manners. He always presented himself with elegance, style, and poise. Rimlo was shown in Western Pleasure, Trail, and Working Western Classes, where he won many Champion ribbons. He was a very smooth riding horse in all gaits,a trait that he passed on to his offspring. Our daughter, Megan, rode him by herself when she was little because we could TRUST him.

We are fortunate to have 4 of his daughters, 2 grandaughters, and 1 great-grandaughter in our broodmare band. We are lucky to have this many, as someone always managed to talk Harvey out of them.

We have shown his offspring RG Bo Bonanza one year at the Morgan Grand National Show in Oklahoma City, OK. We had a goal of making the cut to show in the finals in Double Jeopardy, which we ended up with Reserve Champion. So then our next goal was to place in every class-which we did. We even ended up with a 6th place Hi-Point Carriage Horse and we did not even compete in the classes held the first day. He also sired some other horses who have competed and won in the US and Canada in Combined Driving events, and other driving shows. We regretfully had to retire him from the show ring and ranch work, which he loved, due to a bowed tendon.

He was a true ambassador of the Morgan Breed and the Grunden Ranch Morgans breeding program.

Some of his accomplishments include:

1981 - Nebraska State Fair Reserve High Point Champion
1983 - Nebraska State Fair Western Pleasure Champion
