Comments: Hello everyone.  Congratulations to Shima and Doug on the birth of their first.  I just found I was related, by marriage, to Doug.  Now I can't wait to visit friends near my old stomping grounds of DFW and Ft. Hood (Killeen). I am sure to learn quite a bit at the ranch.  Put me to work.  Very nice site.  I love the puzzles.

Comments: I was looking at an issue of Horse Illustrated and I wanted to find who owned that beautiful horse Powder River and discovered it was walker west. I have visited this website many times in the past but I was just browsing. I am from Midway Alabama and I know Carol YoungBlood. She used to own Paint Handshaker. She lives in Union Springs Alabama about 14 miles from Midway. I also know Shane Hartwig, the guy that trained and showed Paint Handshaker.

Comments: I really enjoyed the Walkers West virtual tour.  I really wish that I could meet you in person.  I have a strong love for horses, and enjoys being with them.  I have a 2 1/2 year saddlebred filly.  In my town I'm basically the only female who rides horse.  Right now I'm in the process of training my horse to ride and to be gentle. With your prayer hopefully I can be successful. I live approximately 2 1/2 hours from the Gulf Coast, so if you're in Mississippi one day please email me, and hopefully one day I could actually travel to Texas to visit you and your beautiful horses. God Bless,  Love NaKenzie

Comments: What a fantastic website and fine group of horses! I stumbled on your site while surfing the horse part of the web. I have Arabians and Paints and a Morgan to boot! I am involved in endurance racing at the present and enjoy a fine horse of any breed.  I have had a Spotted Saddle Horse and enjoyed the gaited way of traveling very much. Some day I am sure to buy another gaited horse and your type of horse is what I will be looking for. You have the finest collection of horses I have seen. You should be proud and happy. I am a real-estate agent also and find I am running clients around alot and don't always have as much time for riding as I would prefer but you gotta buy hay and grain for the critters right! Well, I will quit bending your ear, but I just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed your website! Thankyou for some uplifting of the spirit on a otherwise cold dreary winter day...Take Care ,  Jan Jessup, Springdale Farm, Camby, Indiana

Comments: Hey!  I'm 12 years old and I love horses!!  I had a horse from Armed and Dangerous.  Her name was A&D's Champagne Kisses.  That was my first padded horse I had ever ridden, and I absolutely loved her.  I ride for Tim Holey and them.  I used to be with Neal Roberson before he died.  He was really the one that got me into padded horses, because until then, I'd always rode flat shod.  I kind of got tired of seeing the ground with them, so now the only horse I will ride is a padded horse.  Well, got to go, but if you got a list of the horse shows for this year, will you send it to me?  thanks.

You have really put a lot of work into this site and it shows for sure.
I am a TN Walker fan and have been so for years. I married a lady who owned Walkers at the time we married.  So I learned to ride and love Walkers. In the late 1970s 1977 in fact we moved to Orlando FL and lived in that area for several years. While there we bought a Golden Palomino Walker from Mr. Floyd Purcell. He and us hit it off from the first. We went to the FL Sate Celebration as his guest and sat along beside him in his booth. This man was a walking encyclopedia on TN Walkers a horse would enter the ring and he could tell you sire and dam of that horse every time.

After the Show was over he invited us to dine with him and three of his close friends and we did. We sat down at the table and first to come in and sit down and talk with us was MR. STEVE HILL, a very well known and versed Walker man. Then came in MR. S. W. Beech, also well versed and well known. And then in came  Mr. Buddy Kirby, also well known and well versed. Well after three hours of talking walkers and eating were finished up what was one of the best dinners we ever had. And what a wonderful evening we had.

A few months later I was talking via phone to Ms Sharon Brandon at TWHBEA and mentioned I knew Mr. Purcell she laughed and said yes we do to he is a wonderful man to know. She said I should spend as much time with him as possible and listen and learn. She said MR. Floyd as she called him came in every time he bought a horse. And would spend the day with them at the offices. She also said he was a TRUE SOUTHERN GENTLEMAN.   

In the last few years MR. Floyd Purcell has died and left a big open spot in my life. I will never forget what he told me about breeding Walkers. " BREED THE BEST YOU GOT TO THE BEST YOU CAN FIND"

Sincerely, Mr. JIM       Jim McCracken

Comments: I love Tennessee walkers and I have a part walker that can really travel but there is one problem.  I had her trained by a friend that is black person and is good with horses and he can get on her and she will really do what she is supposed to do.  I can get on her and she rides rougher than most quarter hoses.  I do not know how to get her to gait correctly and no one is available now to teach me.  I live in Prescott ark. and would like to know how long and how much it could cost for your trainer to teach me to just get her to smooth out.  I am 53 and am not able to ride the rough gait.
Please reply, I love my horse and really love to ride.
