Submit your old-blooded stallion at stud to firstname.lastname@example.org to be included on this list.
This list is intended to help those looking for old and unusual bloodlines to preserve or cross with modern bred horses. This allows for greater genetic diversity and hybrid vigor. The notes "No ____ breeding" does not mean that we do not appreciate those bloodlines, just that owners of mares who are very heavy in certain lines can look to these stallions as an outcross. Many modern show lines have produced horses who are heavily lateral in their way of going, hotter tempered and finer boned. Those same lines have given us sweeping backends and incredible show presence. We believe that crossing the often squarer moving, heavier boned horses from the western working lines and old time middle Tennessee lines can create exceptional individuals to further improve our breed. That said, common sense dictates that each horse should be judged as an individual and key factors carefully considered before breeding. (Yes, appearantly that disclosure is needed.) This list is in no way affiliated with the International Heritage Walking Horse Association, though we do note whether or not a horse is certified for those looking specifically for that.
