Comments: Beautiful horses!   I fell in love with Dangerous Jezebel.  I have owned horses before, but never walkers.  I rode one that a friend had and have been hooked ever since.  I am preparing to own one soon and will make the short drive from Wylie to Kaufman to see what you have.

Comments: Love your site!  Have three Walkers...  Chance's Midnight Rose 935358 out of Sun's Midnight Mark and A Little Honey.  She has Midnight Sun, Wilson's Allen, and Ramsey's Rena on her top side.  Old Roman nose...  Big 'ole mare with a lot of heart.  She may be our next mama...  Just looking to see what's out there.  Also have Bum's Ebony Shadow 841482 out of Magic Bum and Ebony's Black Doll with Delight Bumin Around on top and Ebony Masterpiece on bottom.  Seventeen years old and her daughter is our other mare - Ebony's Midnight Trouble 979583 out of Ebony's Bold Masterpiece and (obviously) Bum's Ebony Shadow.  I'm still trying to learn about the registrations of my mares as well as ones I've considered for breeding.  Lot's of info to absorb!  Do you know of any books/sites that would help me in my quest for knowledge?  Would sure appreciate the help.  Thanks again for such a beautiful and informative site!  I'll be back...

Comments: As a small child my father, who professionally wrestled under the name of Tim Tyler, would take me to the Lennox home to visit in the barn with Mr. Lennox and Carbon Copy.  He was such an amazing beast!   I was only four years of age, and so I believed that the television in the barn was for Carbon Copy, not Mr. Lennox.   We visited several times a year, and to this day my mother has the big glossy photo's of the champion horse.   Those fond memories will be with me for the rest of my life.
Gratefully, Anthony Hickmon, Oklahoma.

Four generations back his grandpa was Merry Go Boy. Our baby is a beautiful brown and white overo. We are looking into AIS for breeding our mare back. Just wanted to say hi and thanks for your hard work in your website.

Comments: My grandfather, Lewis Perkinson, was Sunny Midnight P's  owner/breeder.  His mother, Misty, was my boyhood favorite.  She was the horse that I rode daily and my constant companion.   
I rode Sonny often but much of his early years were spent in training and showing with trainer J. W. Hicks and his son, Jimmy.  I enjoyed your website and seeing the progeny of my childhood friends.  I am glad you have honored the tradition of my grandfather.  I am sure
that he sings your praises.  When we are able to visit our Dallas cousins, we will stop by to see you.   God bless.

Comments: I am not very knowledgeable of TWH except that I love to ride them.  I did not know until I read your site that I had 2 very high bred mares.  They are 2 and 3 years old and one goes back to Ebony's Mountain Man and Ebony' Masterpiece, with Sun's Delight D and I think she has Spotted Allen in her.  The other one also has Ebony's Masterpiece and Marshall Dillon I don't have the papers in front of me  But I was surprised to find the all on your web site.  It is great to know you don't have to go to Tennessee to find really good TWH.  Texas has it all.

Comments: This site really took me back down memory lane.  My husband and I have the wonderful walkers .  I was raised riding walkers and always feel close to my dad when I go through the history of the breed. I had the extreme privilege riding Midnight Sun not long before he died.  My dad died the Christmas of the same year. When I tell folks that I rode him, I have to show them the pictures or they won't believe me. Thanks for such a wonderful walk through time.

Comments: Hello,
My name is Amy and I'm 14.  I live in Tennessee & own 8 horses, but only 2 of them are Walking horses the rest are racking.  One of our neighbor's horses is over here.  She is 2 years old and walks like she should be older.  She's very good. Her half sister is Shout. One of the walking horses that we have got is out of Prime candidate, and Ebony's Portrait In Black.   He has Ebony Masterpiece on both sides . He's red with a white main & tail.  He's three years old and walks sometimes but the other times he lazy.
The other is a strawberry roan and don't do nothing. So we just use her as a brood mare. I loved your website, and i really love how u had stuff in there about the horses that have died. I would like to say that u did an fantastic job on the website.
And i will come back.

Keep up the good work on your website.  I will be checking your website again soon. Dolores

Comments: I rescued a Tennessee Walker from a Hack line. He was papered but I had NO idea what I had. As Midnight Sun had sired over 100 horses for over 20 years, there are, I am sure many descendents from him. I have one, Shadow's Mr. Sundown 833241 (foaled 7/15/83) , who has Midnight Sun 410751 from both sides in linage as well as Merry Go Boy 431336, Midnight Mack K 490450, Mack K's Handshaker 561320.  4 World Grand Champions from blood line.

I was excited to find your web site that helped me understand about this beautiful Walking Horse. Shadow, like the previous versions is a delight and even though I felt honored to have him, feel even more special since I have learned of his linage.

Thanks for a really KEWL web site. Shadow is 18 and is living a wonderful life! If Robert Sylvester or Donna West read this, l would like to send a photo of this wonderful animal to them.
Again, thanks!

We love your web site, Shaker is a handfull just being under 2 years old and as black as Midnight Sun with no other markings. He is a hands on stallion and has a great temperment. We will be back to visit your site. Thank you for doing such a great tribute to a long line of great horses.

Please help before I have an accident! My horse is wonderful. Believe it or not she has no bad habits. The only problem I have is that she trips a lot and sometimes we end up on the ground. She is a 5 year old and has been doing this since she was trained at 2 1/2 yrs. Could she have a problem with her legs? I've looked at them and there evidence that there is a problem. I've even rolled the shoes in front and it doesn't make a difference.

I've been really worried about this.  I would appreciate any help you could give about this problem.

Thanking you in advance for your time in reviewing this question.

I really enjoyed looking at all your photos and great info.   I will be a new owner of a TW in January!  I have always been a QH rider but my grandpa in the 1960's was into TW and it was his life!  As a little girl I thought the TW was way to big and lifted the feet too high! ha   Grandpa did let me ride in the back seat a few times.  He was showing his horses every  weekend and traveled the USA with his horses!   I am just doing trails and going to enjoy that smooth ride!  again, great web site!   Judy
