-- Affordable opportunity to buy and raise your dream horse --
"Go Boy's Texas Gunslinger" -- Born 4/16/09 out of "Perfect Justice" (a buckskin mare) by "I'm Your Gold Huckleberry" (a drop-dead gorgeous palomino stallion), this classy, exceptional bay colt will be muscular, big and beautiful. He's not showing it now, but in a few months, he will be sporting four black stockings to match his black mane/tail/forelock, and he has a graceful arched neck with a sloping shoulder, nice round hindquarters, and a cute little crease down his back. He will be ready for his new home by September 1, 2009 and he will be taught to: Lead; stand tied; have his feet handled; bathe; be clipped; tolerate dogs, cattle, highway traffic; pony from a horse; pony from a 4-wheeler; park out; bow; lie down. We will be happy to accept a non-refundable deposit of $500 to hold him until September. We will be loading him on the trailer and hauling him with his mother to ride the trails in different areas, so he will be one highly educated youngster by the time he is weaned, and when he is older, starting him under saddle will be a breeze. He will be trained with gentle authority, natural horsemanship methods. Gunslinger will be a beautiful stallion prospect or classy trail companion. Click on his picture at LEFT to see more pics and a video of his trail training, already! $2000
"Neon" -- Loud patterned flashy classic champagne tobiano spotted Tennessee Walking Horse stud colt born 5/14/09 by Go Boy's Champagne Pride (pictured above) out of Miss Indiana. Click on his picture to see more info. $2000
Congratulations, David, who owns a brother to Neon!
"Arrow" -- Beautifully-marked black/white tobiano stud colt with proud presence by Go Boy's Champagne Pride out of Miss Indiana (grandsire pictured at top of this page "Pride's Split Decision") -- both sire and dam on premises, and this cross has produced many gentle, people-loving smooth-gaited pleasure mounts. He will be really flashy, as his rump will be jet black with a white tail. Arrow is a full brother to "Sawyer" and "Pride's Black Tie Affair" (both pictured below on this web page). Click on his picture to see more pictures and info.
Congratulations, Deon & family in Houston, TX!
"Jesse James" -- This colt will be big-boned and tall, probably 15.3 or 16H as most of his brothers and sisters have matured to that height. They are always gentle-natured, people-oriented, smooth-gaited, pleasantly spirited. This colt, born 5/14/08, is two days old in this picture. He is a classic champagne tobiano with a solid champagne tail and mixed mane, star on his forehead. Click on his picture to see more info. $2000
Congratulations, Wendy in Kansas!
"Isabella" -- I took these pictures/video on 5/28/08 in the rain because you cannot see these markings or color on this filly when she is dry! She appears to be cremello when she is dry, but she has the dark in her mane and tail, like a buckskin. Click on her picture to see cute video. More info soon.
Congratulations, Deon & family in Houston, TX!
"Profile" -- Classy black and white spotted Tennessee Walking Horse colt born 6/07/07 to a black and white tobiano mare by the tobiano champagne stallion "Go Boy's Champagne Pride" (so there is a chance he might be homozygous!). He is marked almost identically on both sides and he has four long, high white stockings, a black tail with a tip of white on it. Classy and flashy! Don't even consider this colt if you are wanting a small horse -- his dam is 16H and all her foals grow big. He will be tall with large bones and a fabulous 4-beat gait. His dam is my favorite personal riding mare, with an exceptionally smooth gait, from the Delight Bumin Around and Ebony's Mountain Man lines. He is a full brother to "Cody", listed below. $2000 Click on his picture to go to his info page.
Congratulations to Debbie Cruz in Florida!
"Peddlin' The Bucks" -- Born 4/2/07 by a cremello stallion and out of a bay mare (from palomino bloodlines). PTB's dam has an incredible pedigree -- her sire is a palomino grandson of Ebony Masterpiece and Triple Threat, and his dam is solid palomino background from Chance's Gold Dust, John A's Chance, and Deserts Gold Sun. PTB's dam is a direct daughter of one of my favorite World Champions, Pride's Peddler, which has produced a lot of nice, natural horses with the true head-shaking walk. Pride's Peddler of course, goes back to Pride of Midnight and Sun's Delight D, and PTB's dam's dam is a direct daughter of Sun's Delight D. She is a literal epitome of Who's Who in the Tennessee Walking Horse world. PTB's full sister "Peddlin' The Gold" is a celebrity, winning her way around the show ring and earning versatility points already. She is only 3 years and carrying the flag at horse shows. Click on PTB's picture ABOVE to go to his info page to see more scoop on him and his sister.
Congratulations to the Messersmiths, who bought "Hank" last year and are riding him now!
"Sawyer" -- Beautiful jet black Tennessee Walking Horse stud colt with four long white stockings, big white star between his eyes, and a white strip in his tail. It is possible that he could be homozygous for the tobiano gene, but whether his destiny is a stallion or a pleasure gelding, he is one sweet guy. He is very, very calm and gentle, and will be tall. I have his full brother, 3 years old now, that I am starting under saddle, and he is already over 15.2H with another year or two to grow. Sawyer's dam is a bay tobiano mare and his sire is the champagne Go Boy's Champagne Pride, pictured above. His full brother's gaits are smooth and fluid, like a dream, and he has a natural, easy canter. Come see the whole family! Click on his picture to see his info page with pedigree. $2000
Congratulations Christine, who bought Sawyer's full brother 4 years ago -- pictures soon!
"Cody" -- Handsome and classy classic champagne Tennessee Walking Horse stud colt born 6/3/06 to a black and white tobiano mare by the tobiano champagne stallion "Go Boy's Champagne Pride" (so there is a chance he might be homozygous!). Don't even consider this colt if you are wanting a small horse -- his dam is 16H and all her foals grow big. He will be tall with large bones and a fabulous 4-beat gait. His dam is my favorite personal riding mare, with an exceptionally smooth gait, from the Delight Bumin Around and Ebony's Mountain Man lines. Cody is a full brother to the black and white tobiano filly "Jazzy", below on this page. Click on Cody's picture at RIGHT to see his pedigree, and click on thumbnails below to see larger pictures. (Previously sold but due to buyer's unfortunate circumstances, she cannot take him, so he is available again.) $2000
Congratulations to Laura in New Mexico and Massachusetts!
Being a ham, playing with the water hose!
"Harmony" -- Beautiful classic champagne/white tobiano spotted Tennessee Walking Horse filly born 3/16/06 with crystal blue eyes which will change to greenish topaz as she matures (typical of champagnes). Her coat will lighten, also, and she will be the same color as her sire, "Go Boy's Champagne Pride" pictured above. (Click on picture at above LEFT to see her pedigree.) Her sire is the champagne son of a homozygous spotted stallion, "Go Boy's Gold Insignia". (Go Boy's Champagne Pride is a minimally-expressed tobiano, as evidenced by the four long white stockings.) Harmony could be homozygous, since she has both tobiano parents -- her full sister "Patriotic Princess" (listed on the home page) is being tested now by the University of California. Every single baby that Harmony's dam has ever produced has been exceptionally gentle, sweet-natured and smooth-gaited. Harmony will be one beautiful mare and the chances are strong that she is carrying the homozygous tobiano gene! We'll be glad to take a deposit and payments until she is old enough to wean (sometime between 7/16/06 and 9/16/06). $2000
"Pearli" -- We named her after her color, which is the rare perlino. She is a darling, feminine little perlino Tennessee Walking Horse filly out of a buckskin Generator-bred mare and a cremello stallion. This is a much sought-after combination and hard to get, since they are known for producing buckskins. You can barely see the caramel coloring on the tips of her ears, and her mane and tail are the same color, eyes are crystal blue, and she has a big beautiful blazed face. Pearli was born 4/7/06 healthy and strong, no complications and was imprinted, already learning to lead. She will be ready for her new home any time after 8/7/06. Click on her picture at LEFT to see her pedigree, and go to the Sale Broodmare page to see her dam. Click on thumbnails below to see more Pearli! $3500
Congratulations, Sam in Arizona! Pearli will be joining other Cloud 9 horses already there!
"Lizzie Grace" -- Complete gentle sweetheart with a personality like her parents, both people-loving and affectionate horses. Her mother, in particular, is very annoying -- she will not leave you alone in the pasture, will come to you and bury her head in your chest, close her eyes waiting for attention. This is a fiery red sorrel filly and her mane and tail have blonde underneath, so we expect them to grow in blonde, like her mother's. We recently thinned her mother's mane because it was almost down to her knees and kept getting tangled, but it was long and almost white. This Tennessee Walking Horse filly is from Prides Generator bloodlines (click on picture above to see her pedigree) and has a beautiful, flowing 4-beat gait in the pasture. Lizzie Grace's dam belonged to my mother, who passed away 5 years ago, and we named this filly after my mother's middle name "Elizabeth". A dear lady in Arizona told me that her daughter's name was Lizzie, and her middle name was Grace -- the cutest name I've ever heard, so this filly is named after two special people! Click on the thumbnails below to see more pictures, and pictures of Lizzie Grace's cute little namesake. $1750
Lizzie Grace is going to live with her little namesake in Arizona!
LEFT: Charlie on 5/27/06 -- his black legs will go light, then turn jet black again as he matures.
RIGHT: Charlie at only a few days of age.
"Charlie" -- Big, strong, stout, healthy solid (no white) buckskin Tennessee Walking Horse stud colt, full brother to "Peddler" (advertised on Yearling page and "Peddlin' The Gold", shown below on this page and winning in the show ring!). Charlie's parents are exceptionally gentle and mild-natured, and I refer to his dam as a "dog in horse hair" she is so docile. His dam has an incredible pedigree -- her sire is a palomino grandson of Ebony Masterpiece and Triple Threat, and his dam is solid palomino background from Chance's Gold Dust, John A's Chance, and Deserts Gold Sun. Charlie's dam is out of a direct daughter of one of my favorite World Champions, Pride's Peddler, which has produced a lot of nice, natural horses with the true head-shaking walk. Pride's Peddler of course, goes back to Pride of Midnight and Sun's Delight D, and Charlie's dam's dam is a direct daughter of Sun's Delight D. She is a literal epitome of Who's Who in the Tennessee Walking Horse world. This colt is big boned and will be a stout horse with a wide chest. He was born 4/12/06 and will be weaned around 8/12/06 or shortly afterward. Click on thumbnail below to see Charley and Dalton, two "twins"! $2500
Congratulations to the Barto's in Pennsylvania!
"Chanel" -- Crystal blue eyes right now, but will turn topaz as she ages. This loud-colored, flashy Tennessee Walking Horse filly is a champagne/white tobiano spotted foaled 6-7-05 out of "Pride's Silver Storm", a "Pride's Stormy Night/Ultra Threat mare, and sired by "Go Boy's Champagne Pride" (pictured above). Click on her picture (which was taken at 18 hours of age!) to the LEFT to see her pedigree. You can see her full brother below on this web page, "Al Capone". Click on the thumbnails below to see more pictures of her and her dam (before she started having babies). It will be harder to find a classier, flashier champagne Tennessee Walking Horse mare than Chanel is going to be! Smooth gait is a given, since both parents are extremely smooth, gentle and sweet-natured. $2000
"Flurry" -- Isn't she angelic? She is a very refined, beautiful and classy CREMELLO Tennessee Walking Horse filly, complete with beautiful ice blue eyes, by a cremello stallion and out of a cremello mare. She has a naturally wavy tail and a petite head -- nothing but beautiful 4-beat gait every step she takes. She comes from Royal Ivory, Dill's gold Dust, Sun's Delight D bloodlines. Flurry's dam is sired by a cremello stallion which was the product, also, of two cremellos. The dam of this mare was the product of the mating of two palominos, so the gold genetics are just endless for this Tenn Walker filly. She was born 6/5/05 and is currently being taught to lead, load in a trailer, clip and have her feet handled. All pictures were taken when she was not quite a week old, except the two thumbnails below to far right, which were taken on 6/22/05. $3500
"Bocephus" -- Well, we named him after his bloodlines. His dam's sire is the beautiful cremello Tennessee Walking Horse stallion "Hank Williams" which is a full brother to "Royal Ivory" (from the Bud England line), so we figure he's Hank, Jr.! His dam, "Gold Summer" comes from the Go Boy's Sun Dust line, back to Mack K's Handshaker. She is between 15 and 15.1H, a bit stocky and extremely gentle. She is the kind that follows you around the pasture begging for you to put the halter on her! She is our gentle lesson horse, and anyone can ride her. Bocephus is sired by a cremello stallion, so his golden genetics are endless! He was born on Labor Day (9/5/05) and will be ready for his new home around Christmas or the end of this year. Click on his picture to see his pedigree. $2500
Congratulations to Dan Irwin and his friend, Diane. Dan bought his first Tennessee Walking Horse from me 20 years ago!
"Treasure" -- This is one splashy, flashy filly! (Picture to LEFT was taken 5/5/05.) Born 4/11/05, she has the blue eyes indicative of her champagne heritage (which will gradually turn permanently greenish topaz), gorgeous head, big blazed face, four long, HIGH white stockings and a splash of either black or dark champagne in her tail. She will be a beautiful mare, and her bloodlines aren't shabby, either! Her sire is Go Boy's Champagne Pride (by the homozygous Go Boy's Gold Insignia and out of a direct daughter of Pride of Midnight), and her dam is Triple Threat, Pride of Midnight and Midnight Mack K. Lots of colorful genetics -- palomino in the background, roan and champagne. $2000 We have taught her to lead, stand tied, load in a trailer, handle her feet, and be bathed.
"Jazzy" -- A gorgeous perfect black and white tobiano spotted Tennessee Walking Horse filly. Her dam is my favorite personal riding mare, exceptionally smooth gait from the Delight Bumin Around and Ebony's Mountain Man lines. This filly will be a big, colorful, elegant but sturdy mare like her mom! Jazzy's gait is perfectly smooth -- no pace in her at all. Her dam produces big, healthy, fast-growing babies, as she is 16H herself. . $2250
Congratulations to Caroline in California!
"Sweetpea" -- Gaited mule filly born 9/10/03 by a gaited jack and out of a Tennessee Walking Horse mare. Her sire has produced many gaited offspring when crossed with gaited mares. Her dam is a daughter of a multi-registered blue roan Tennessee Walking Horse/Missouri Foxtrotter from the Rodgers Perfection/Sun's Delight D line, and her dam comes from Sun's Ace of Spades Merry Go Boy lines. Of course she is not registered TWHBEA, but she has been exhibiting her gait since she was born. This mule absolutely ADORES people and will right now, is stabled at a public office. Every time a car drives up, she brays and runs to the gate to meet each newcomer and beg for attention. She adores being petted and scratched, and although she gets along fine in the pasture with the horses and other mules, she prefers the company of people. She is the most loving hoofed creature you may ever meet (besides Bunny, below). Click on thumbnails below to see pictures of her and her mother when she was a couple of days old. $1850
"Peddlin' The Gold" -- UPDATE: Click on "Goldie's" picture to see her progress in her new home. She is a future star! A GOOD moving, true walking, striding, gliding palomino filly with big star on her forehead. This Tennessee Walking Horse filly has a huge, loose back end. She will be golden and has great golden genetics. She was born 4/5/04 and is by a cremello stallion and out of a bay mare (from palomino bloodlines). Goldie's dam has an incredible pedigree -- her sire is a palomino grandson of Ebony Masterpiece and Triple Threat, and his dam is solid palomino background from Chance's Gold Dust, John A's Chance, and Deserts Gold Sun. Goldie's dam is a direct daughter of one of my favorite World Champions, Pride's Peddler, which has produced a lot of nice, natural horses with the true head-shaking walk. Pride's Peddler of course, goes back to Pride of Midnight and Sun's Delight D, and Goldie's dam's dam is a direct daughter of Sun's Delight D. She is a literal epitome of Who's Who in the Tennessee Walking Horse world. This beautiful golden filly should mature to 15.3H, according to her canon measurement, and has a beautiful sloping shoulder, nice round hip and a gorgeous head with dark eyes.

"Pride's Black Tie Affair" -- Homozygous (for tobiano gene) black and white minimally-expressed tobiano (like his sire) spotted stud colt, born 3/6/04 with a backward Nike logo on his forehead and a snip on his nose. He will be a stunning horse when he's grown, with a jet black coat, four high white stockings, a solid white tail with a snip of black at the end, and a mark of white around his neck on both sides, making him look like he's wearing formal evening attire. He is a full brother to Jagger (on the yearling page) and Hannah, pictured below on this page (with his dam). His dam is a 16H pinto mare from the Pride of Midnight/Triple Threat bloodline and his sire is the gorgeous "Go Boy's Champagne Pride" pictured at the top of this page. You can also see his maternal grandsire "Pride's Split Decision" at the top of this page. $2000
"Al Capone" -- This is one of the 'loudest' spotted patterns you will see in this breed! This gorgeous black and white spotted Tennessee Walking horse stud colt was born July 9, 2003 out of a Pride's Stormy Night/Ultra Threat mare. His sire is "Go Boy's Champagne Pride" (pictured above) and his dam is "Pride's Silver Storm", a 16H red roan mare with 4 stockings, blaze and blonde mane and tail. (Click thumbnails below to the right to see picture of his dam.) Both parents are beautifully gaited and this colt certainly carries some colorful genes! His face is very uniquely marked and both eyes are black. $2250

How To Take A Photograph of Your Foal
1. Remove film from box and load camera.
2. Remove film box from foal's mouth and throw in corner.
3. Remove foal from corner and brush dirt from muzzle.
4. Choose a suitable background for photo.
5. Mount camera on tripod and focus.
6. Coax foal into pre-focused spot and return to camera.
7. Find foal again.
8. Forget about pre-focused spot and return to camera.
9. Chase around after foal, trying to look nonchalant.
10. Focus with one hand and fend off foal with the other hand.
11. Get tissue and clean nose print from camera lens.
12. Find foal again.
13. Unfold tripod from scrambled mess in dirt.
14. Find foal again.
15. Put cat back in tackroom and put peroxide on scratch on foal's nose.
16. Find foal again.
17. Try to get foal's attention by squeaking a toy over your head.
18. Replace your glasses and check camera for damages.
19. Fix a drink.
20. Sit back, relax, drink and resolve to teach foal "whoa" and "stand" first thing in the morning.
Vaccinate your mare 4-6 weeks prior to foaling date to maximize protection for the foal (check with your vet to see what vaccinations are required in your area.
Supplies for foaling day:
Iodine or Nolvasan to disinfect the umbilical cord
Clean cotton shoelace or shoe string to tie off umbilical cord
Nursing bottle to collect colostrum in case mare won't let foal nurse
Supplies for giving an enema (either Fleet enema or soft rubber catheter and 60 ml syringe with warm soapy water)
Fully charged cell phone with vet's phone number stored
Syringe with proper dosage of Oxytocin (from your vet)
Two syringes with tetanus anti toxin
Within 30 - 40 seconds after the foal's front legs and chest leave the birth canal, the sac that surrounds him should break and he should begin breathing. If not, gently break the sac and clear it from his nostrils, but do NOT break the sac until his chest is out, because if he slips back in with a broken sac, he can drown. Hold his head upright and rub vigorously, and if needed, breathe into one nostril while holding the other closed.
The mare will usually stand within 10 minutes of delivering, and at that time, the umbilical cord should break a few inches out from the foal's body. It will bleed, but the bleeding should not last more than a couple of minutes. If it won't stop bleeding, tie it off with the shoelace for a few hours. After it coagulates, dip the stump into a Nolvasan disinfectant diluted to a sky blue color. You can use iodine if you don't have Nolvasan, but it can irritate the skin. Repeat the disinfection procedure two or three times daily for the first 72 hours.
The foal should get to his feet within an hour or so and be nursing soon. If the foal has not nursed within two hours, you may need to help him -- lift by the stifles, tail and chest instead of his belly. Make sure you see him swallowing. If he won't nurse within two hours, you may consider milking the mare yourself and feeding it to the foal with the bottle.
Watch for the foal to have his first bowel movement -- he will pass a black, tar-like feces called meconium. If he strains and is unable to pass, you should give him an enema -- many foals have suffered life-threatening colic from constipation at birth.
If the mare has not passed her placenta, try to tie it in a bundle that hangs and keeps her from stepping on it. It is critical that she passes it within 3 hours, because retained placenta will cause her to go septic and/or cause her to founder. You can pull gently downward with a soft tug, but do not force it if it is not giving -- you could tear her uterus. Do not wait longer than 4 hours to initiate treatmeant -- give her an injection of oxytocin to cause contractions to help her expel the placenta.
Give both mare and foal tetanus anti-toxin within 24 hours of foaling.
Guidelines on when to intervene:
Red bag delivery -- consult your vet immediately if you see this.
