1962-Voice Of The Tennessee Walking Horse 1962 December Voice | Page 21

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 carriage. “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 them. “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.) Book Given in Memory Of Rural Mail Carrier Mr. and Mrs. Talbert B. Hughes of Johnson City, Tenn., have placed a copy of the Biography of the Ten­ nessee Walking Horse in the Jones­ boro, Tenn . Public Library in mem­ ory of Mr. Rollin Britton, a rural letter carrier. Mr. Hughes said Jonesboro was the second post office in the U. S. to go on rural free delivery and Mr. Britton was the first carrier. He was active to within a few days of his death early in October—but retired 33 years ago. He was a fine horseman and interested in the Jonesboro Riding Club. Italian Will Ride Walker C. IT. Turner, 3295 Woodhaven Road, Memphis, 8, Tenn. says he has a friend in Milano, Italy who has been a horse lover all his life and is an accomplished rider of hunters and jumpers. “He plans to visit us soon,” writes Mr. Turner, “and says ‘I think the finest day of my life will be when I ride one of those Tennessee horses.” 19 Alabama ALABAMA GO BOY’S PRINCE (shown as Go Boy’s Millionaire) at Lakeside Farms, Highway 79 between Guntersville and Scottsboro.
