Our Tennessee Walking Horse Program 
<fb:like-box">Share on Facebook

The equine breeding program at Running Arrow Farm is designed to bring forward quality lineage traits of our Tennessee Walking Horses from the "Older Bloodlines" with natural plantation flat shod characteristics which blends wonderfully with the modern linebred pedigrees of today or the Heritage Lines that you/we are trying to preserve!

We have put together a small elite herd with which to breed sensible "walking" foals that we believe will fit the job of being quality trail riding horses.

In the future we will be able to offer breedings from a rare "Certified" Heritage cremello mare with a double agouti gene (Topaz is the only cremello mare in the TWH breed that is certified Heritage #70).  Also her '11 Cremello colt (Buck) also carries the double agouti gene.

In time, it is our hopes to be adding 2 Jr. stallions to the breeding mix, one cremello and one sabino buckskin colt.

 We will be able to offer a mix of the older bloodlines of walking horse genetics in our quality herd along with color. 

By having the 2 cremellos that are double (homozygous) for the agouti gene, we will be guaranteed to have only palomino, buckskin, cremello, or perlino foals depending on which mating we do among our 6 horses that uses a cremello as part of the mating strategy.

NOTE: We do not have the space/land to grow out and train riding horses. Right now I am not breeding any foals.

We do highly recommend "Walkers West" in east Texas, for additional TWH needs.
We also recommend Jim Holmes of Holmes Farm Walkers.
We sell "TOTAL EQUINE" Horse Feed and Mineral Bucket which is by "Total Feeds, "  as seen on RFD-TV.

The Total Equine Feed/Minerals are suitable for horses of all ages and health.

Our mare "Sunny" was one of the poster girls for "Dr. Harry Anderson's" program.

Double Dilute Colt~ RAF's Future Stallion Prospect

RAF Tanasi Buck

The Buck Starts Here x Tanasi Topaz Goldmine
Date of Birth: 04/14/2011
Description: Cremello Colt.. What is special about "RAF Tanasi Gold Buck" is that both sire and dam are homozygous for the cream gene and the agouti gene. This colt carries the homozygous forms of both the cream gene and agouti gene himself. Full brothers are proof that this cross works as they are being used as breeding stallions. Buck's "Heritage Era Lineage" provides a perfect blend to any of the modern showlines. His head nods when he walks.
Registration Number: 21104261
Sales Comments: Buck is the end result of the final mating between Topaz and "THE BUCK STARTS HERE". We are guaranteed a BUCKSKIN or PALOMINO out of all non-dilute mares. We are adding him to our prospect stallion lineup.

RAF Dusty's Royal Stetson

Dusty's Royal Flush x RAF Cajun's Sunny Spirit
Date of Birth: 05/27/2010
Description: Flashy Buckskin colt out of my personal trail riding bay mare, Sunny by Chance aka Dusty. Foundation Era bred on the sire's side, double "Pride of Midnight" on bottom grandam's side. This is the successful blending of the old "foundation" era lines on the more modern but older show lines. We couldn't ask for any better than this. Stetson shows our ideal of what we are looking for in our TWH.
Registration Number: 21004153
Sales Comments: Due to loosing his Sire to a massive Cancer mass around his heart from an overdose of pre-emergence on one years worth of hay that we had purchased. Stetson has the Stud look I like. We will not be selling Stetson. Stetson nods and "Walks" as his hoofbeats are evenly spaced/timed. He has a proud head carriage and is a flashy standout in the pasture. His 1st foal is a nice buckskin filly in 2015 from our Heritage mare, "Tanasi Topaz Goldmine". Filly has at "minimum" one crème gene and one agouti gene.

Date of Birth: 05/07/2004

Registration Number: TWHBEA #20403662
Sales Comments: Sunny is highly prized as a proven trail horse and a proven brood mare. She excels at both which is why she is not for sale, but her foals are.
