(from the Heritage Highlights)
The Faulkner Brothers of Lincoln
County in southern Middle Tennessee were among the early
breeders to register their stock with the TWHBAA. Son and
nephew Jab Faulkner helped with the horses as a youngster
and continued the family tradition of excellent using Walking
Horses and quality jack stock when he grew up. After many
years, however, he and his wife decided to retire from horse
breeding in the early nineties. One of the area breeders
eager to purchase Jab’s proven family bloodlines was Danny
Danny took one of the Jab Faulkner
mares named Lucy Sue’s Angel to the court of the old Midnight
Sun stallion, Sun’s Midnight Mark. Mark stood in Readyville,
Tennessee, at the farm of his breeder and lifetime owner,
The foal that arrived in the
spring of 1993 inherited the black coat of his sire but
his dam’s sabino markings, passed down over the generations
from the first of the Faulkner mares.
He was a large colt, quiet and
friendly. Sun’s Smokey Midnight grew up in the hills of
Franklin County. He was started under saddle, where he displayed
very correct walking gaits without the irritating paciness
bred into many of
the more modern show lines. Danny
made the decision to retain him as the herd sire for Elk
River Farm. Time has proven this to be a wise decision,
as Smokey has proven to be not only a sire of fine riding
and flatshod show stock, but a sire of stallions as well.
His pedigree offers the popular “royal cross” of a Midnight
Sun stallion with a Merry Boy bred mare, while also featuring
the older Wilson’s Allen lines developed by the Faulkner
Brothers on the bottom of his dam’s pedigree.
