How we ended up breeding Tennessee Walking Horse:
I have loved horses as long as I can remember I read all any horse book I could get my hands on, all the black stallions book and so on.
When I was nine I learned to ride a quarter horse mare from a friend of my dad’s in Bagley, MN. His daughter had a kid safe horse and she said I could ride her horse so I went out in the field and with twine strings and tie one on each side of the her halter lead up to a fallen tree and got on and started riding. Mind you this was my first time riding a horse and boy was really hook then. After we sold the dairy farm in Bagley, MN and move to Maryland, I had friends that had horses and I would go riding with them.
When I turned 19 my family and I decided try dairy farming again but in Roanoke, VA this time. Now I was able to buy my own horse and we went to Earl Moles who a good reputation for selling gentle well broke horses. At this time we nothing about Racking or Walking horse for that matter. We bought a Register Racking mare Oak Grove Misty. When sold that dairy because dad got sick and his mother passed away, I didn't’t not want give my horse up do brought her with me and boarded her out in Maryland.
At the boarding place in Maryland Dad decided he want to start riding again and he bought a beautiful red and white quarter horse paint Jake. Well one day Dad and I were saddling the horse up to go riding and Dad said he just could not ride Jake today that his back was hurting to bad. I told him to take Misty my racking mare and I would take Jake. The next day we went looking for another gaited horse and Jack was up for sale. We bought Eb’s Power Glide a registered Tennessee Walking Horse gelding from Boyd Roberts.
That is how we feel madly in love with Tennessee Walking Horses.
