“History of Aranaway Farm”
Aranaway Farm is located in the beautiful Applegate River Valley in Southern Oregon.
Mary Anne Morrison has a deep sense of pride and joy in accomplishments as breeders and the evolution of Aranaway Farm. Blessed with beautiful and outstanding horses and years of successful Morgan breeding, Aranaway Farm has a reputation for excellent service in the Morgan Industry.
Aranaway Farm has been the source of outstanding breeding and show animals. Here you will find the impeccable union of superior genetics. The proof of these horses lies in their ability to produce and perform.
Many people ask why we named our farm “ARANAWAY”. It was derived from one of our foundation stallions, Arana Field, who’s life was saved as a weanling by a man named Tony Arana. All of the resulting foals were named with the Arana prefix and they did so well in the show ring that it was a common statement, if you wanted to win, you better do it the “Arana-Way.” Thus, the name was adopted as our prefix. To the right is a photo of Phil with the great Arana Field.
Mary Anne Morrison is an excellent and versatile trainer and show woman. She competed successfully in every division of the Morgan World. Mary Anne is a “R” USEF Morgan judge and has judged throughout the US, as well as Canada. She had judged the first Morgan horse show in Germany and most recently judged the National Show for Morgans in England. Her mentor, teacher, and father was the late Phil Morrison, a noted Morgan trainer, breeder, and judge who judged the Grand National and World Championship Show three times, and nearly every other major Morgan and Arabian show in the nation including the Arab Nationals. Phil was inducted into the Morgan Horse Hall of Fame in the spring of 1996.
We are currently standing a full complement of stallions. These include The Millionaire, and our imported purebred Andalusian stallion and the exciting imported Lusitano Stallion from Brazil, Cordon Negro. We utililize semen transport methods. We also have a large herd of broodmares, six of whom are UVM Promise daughters, and each year there is a lovely selection of foals for sale. We currently have an extraordinary group of weanlings, yearlings, two and three year-olds in training and for sale.

Independently owned and operated for over 75 years, the facility includes a 140’ by 126’ arena, show barn and training facility. A separate stallion barn houses the excellent selection of stallions standing at Aranaway Farm, and the farm’s eight 12’ by 24’ stalls in the mare motel are designed especially for the comfort of broodmares during foaling. The complex includes a 100’ x 200’ outdoor arena and a perimeter exercise and training track for riding and driving.
All of these features add up to the Northwest’s premier Morgan Horse breeding farms. Mary Anne and Jim Adams, always welcome visitors and invite you to visit us in beautiful Southern Oregon.
Aranaway Farm has been located in Grants Pass, Oregon since 1952. Under the guidance of Mary Anne’s father, Philip A. Morrison, it grew and developed into a nationally recognized Morgan Horse breeding and training stable. That tradition continues today. Mary Anne and Jim are dedicated to the ideals and goals of Phil, to continue preserving and sharing the Morgan Horse with everyone who appreciates fine horses.
