Dun Central Station (DCS)
was originally the brain child of Gerald (Jerry) Hess of The
Lineback Morgan Stud, created as a means of educating the general
Morgan community on the dun dilute gene within the Morgan breed.
As with all grand ideas, DCS began to take on a life of its
own. It gained great favor with other breeders and enthusiasts
of the dun Morgan. Additionally, even fans of other breeds began
to direct people to Jerry's web site for the wonderful, accurate
information, and photographic examples of dun colors and markings.
A small group of Morgan breeders/enthusiasts
banded together in support of the concept of DCS. Because of
their initial support and early contributions of photos, articles,
etc., DCS has grown even more. The "Founders" of Dun
Central Station were instrumental in the early stages of this
web site. For this, they deserve a special "Thank You"
from all of us who have an interest in the dun dilute colors
in the Morgan breed, as well as those who seek well researched
information about the dun dilute gene in general.
