    I can't stand it, I have to tell somebody! I have haunted the Kill Pen facebook sites forever, looking for a Tennessee Walker that slapped me sideways. I found her. I showed her to my husband and he already named her. I called the location and paid for her. We are going in the morning to pick her up.

    She is VERY skinny and will need lots of TLC. She is 12 years old and 14.3 hands.

    You will be having fun, Bay'! You have an enthusiastic TEG audience. Be sure to keep us informed and remember we like pictures.

    Pearl?? Now, my grandmother was a Texan and a Pearl. I think it would be okay with her although I can't speak for her, of course ... and of course, I was the grandson who named a banty hen after his other grandmother, Goldie ;).

    Curious about the pearly color, I see that the Tennessee Walker standard allows "any color."

    Breaking my heart. When I got my skinny mare she needed her teeth floated so she could eat. I think she gained 50 lbs the first month after that. Can't wait to see the butterball pictures. I wish may husband were that easy.

    Pearl's color markings are called Sabino.

    Horse colors and markings can get real detailed, DNA testing and so forth. I am quite happy without DNA testing to tell me something that is already pretty plain. She may/may not be registered, there are no papers. Don't really care about that either. She will be for our enjoyment, not for breeding. I see no point in adding to the over population of horses, it is much easier to go get one than it is to breed, raise, train one.

    @catjac1975 I don't ask for much. I am not a shopper. What I want is chickens, sheep, horses and pigs. Horses are a dead loss, everything else I can at least reclaim some of the money spent. LOL With 2 old senior horses that I can no longer ride, I have been wanting another Tennessee Walker. I see them all the time on the kill sites. Most get purchased, the horses that don't sell, get shipped to Mexico for slaughter. This one just "spoke" to me and I considered it for several days before showing her to my husband. We talked it over, slept on it and decided to get her. My husband is awesome.
