I am posting to see if there are any Racking or Walking horse fans on the net.
I am an owner and breeder of Racking horses and would love to here from any
fans of either breed. Also if there is anyone whom would like to know something
about these breeds I will be glad to tell you what I know.

From Massachusetts, we are also breeding the TWH (Delight's College
Boy and Midnite Sun Lines) and also the Missouri Fox Trotter (Zane
Grey and Missouri Traveler lines).
We have found in NH a Spotted TWH (out of a ROOSTER stallion) but are
not sure if she is registered with both the TWHBEA and the Racking Horse
and Spotted horse assocations.
There is also an 'overload' of black stallions
(we happen to have one) and mares up here in New
England but we are now seeing Paints and Palominos too.
Do you show your horses (Walkers) and if you do are there classes
for both the registered and unregistered horse there?

  Put me on your list. I am slowly expanding my ranch with plans of becoming
a breeder of TWH's. Out here in Colorado the flat-shod (plantation walking
horse) is the preferred model. In Alabama you probably see alot of the
"Big-Lick" or built-up show horses. If so, what percentages of each would
you say you have down there. I'd just like to know.

  Out here we like to show in the ring English and Western, show in harness,
compete in trail, trail rides, and parades. Gaited horses are a crowd
pleaser. TWH's are expanding out here and we also have an abundance of black
horses. New stallions of copper, sorrel, and palamino are starting to arrive.

  We currently own 2 TWH's and are planning for more as the funds allow.
Good gaited TWH's run easily from $1000-$3000 and of course more for the
show winners. Colorado is heavy-duty quarter horse country. I'm certainly
not against them as they have their special purpose as do we, but a TWH
gets snickered at if you try to show in an all breed class. TROT YOUR
HORSES...PLEASE.   Say What?
