business and desired to do so you might name a horse
Mr. Chevrolet, Mr. Ford or otherwise.
Quite often the owner selects a name that ties in with
the sire of the colt. Quite often you see a name such as Go
Boy's Big Horse or Midnight Sun’s Man or a similar com
bination. Naturally such a name identifies the colt or horse
forever as being connected directly with a world-renowned
stud. This plan is good for an advertising medium also. It
is not a bad policy to have a horse that can carry the name
of a world’s champion as a sire—and lots of people do it
with their animals.
Q—How many horses as your association registered?
A—We have more than 60,000 horses on our registration
books at this time (August 15, 1962).
These records are kept in a fireproof vault, under lock
and key, with a vault door that has a combination lock. No
one has access to these records except the office personnel
We do not allow anyone to fool with these registration
records, and once a horse is registered—his name or her
name cannot be change if the animal has sired or produced
a foal. The name can be changed on payment of a $10 fee
if the animal has not sired a foal or produced a foal.
Q—Explain how some of the 5-generation pedigrees in
dicate an animal has some antecedents which are untraced
A—Animals listed in pedigrees with their sires or dams
not identified indicate the animals were approved when the
association was first organized—on the basis of either
production or performance. In some instances the names of
the sires or dams were not available, but the horses them
selves were able to execute the true Tennessee Walking
Horse gaits or they produced horses that could perform the
gaits to the satisfaction of association officials.
A lot of these horses that were so registered at that time
have proved to be outstanding producers—and all of these
horses that were registered on production have now been
assigned numbers—and steps have been taken to search out
their pedigrees. Some of these were listed as foundation
Why Just 11 It Foundation Animals
Q—Why are the foundation animals limited to 114?
A—At the time formation of a registry was begun by
the Association the officials selected the horses that had
produced horses that produced additional generations of
horses that were true Tennessee Walking Horses. Of course
a lot of these horses listed as foundation horses had been
dead for many years. Development of a registry began
shortly after the Breeders’ Association was organized at a
meeting in Lewisburg, Tenn. on April 27, 1935. The As
sociation was duly chartered according to the laws of Ten
nessee May 11, 1915. The first volume of the Register was
published in 1938. It listed 61 horses as Recognized
Deceased Sires and Dams which were given F-numbers
indicating they were Foundation Sires and Dams. Others
were added later until 1950. Registry number assignments
began at 350001. Foundation numbers ran to 115 in all, but Continued from page 11
