Voice of the Tennessee Walking Horse
TWTI Gaining Interest
In Sugarlantl, Texas
Reports of increased interest in
Tennessee Walking Horses are re
ceived from Reader Jimmy D. Hooten
of Sugarland, Texas.
“I have a TWI-I black gelding by
Black Allen. He is a North Carolina
horse and he is an excellent pleasure
animal,” says Hooten. Numerous
people have tried to buy him from me
as he has such magnificent style and
“After visiting in Shelbyville in July
I came home to Texas and after much
planning with two neighbors, Mr. P.
E. Schumann and Mr. G. O. Horn, I
returned to the Celebration with
“Mr. Horn purchased Star of Mid
night H, a black stallion, at the Har-
linsdale Farm Sale in Franklin. I pur
chased a sorrell filly, Merry Winter
Rose, from Mr. John Taylor of Eagles-
ville, Tenn. Rose’s mother is a full
sister of Mighty Sun, a horse featured
in the Voice March issue.
“We are elated with these two fine
animals. Our horses have aroused con
siderable interest locally in the TWFI
as a breed and will probably lead to
more Texas money migrating to
Tennessee.” (Note—Fine going,
Jimmy. And we notice you plan to
keep visiting in Tennessee.)
