Harlinsdale Farm Photos

Here's a whole slew of recent photos taken at the historic old Harlinsdale Farm (now Harlinsdale Park) in Franklin, Tennessee. These were taken by OHM last Saturday.

Smitty...Looks like I failed to send a couple of the Harlinsdale pic's...and duplicated a few. Thought I sent one with the "smokestack" in the back ground. The "smokestack" is at THE FACTORY...a shopping, dining, and entertainment complex...near Harlinsdale and on the opposite side of Franklin Rd. I'm NOT a shopper, but it's worth visiting and alot of history. When will you post the ones from Haynes Haven?

It's amazing that this place is still around. Who owns it now? Thanks for the photos.

OHM...Thanks for sending us all the great photos! This is great for those of us that don't live out there and don't get out that way anymore. We wouldn't get to see the farms as they look now nor the gravesites of the champions (I'm loving your trail ride pictures too!!). I appreciate you taking the time to do this for us.

Dutch & Hill...Much obliged and glad you enjoyed them!

Dutch...Haynes Haven was a Saturn assembly plant, and now it's a GM plant. This link may explain it better

Aerial view of Hayne's Haven circa 1940. I think I've posted this one before, but it shows the size of the farm and the location of the structures in relation to one another. Notice the large track at the rear of the farm. Hayne's Haven was a Standardbred operation before venturing into Walking Horses. More old photos of Hayne's Haven can be found on "The Best of WHT" topic.

OHM, OMG thanks for sharing the pics. when we all come for the Celebration we can rent a tour bus and you can be the guide...
Also in your trail pics. when you do the large group shots, it looks like there are lots of spotted horses, are they all spotted saddle horses or a mixture of other breeds. Question

Haynes Haven looks as if it was THE horse facility back in the day. Was there any other farm in Middle Tn. as impressive as H H, except for maybe Milky Way?

Sheila those pictures were wonderful. Do you have to have special permission to visit? I'm coming back for the new year and would love to ride over there.

Grits...Yes, all the spots in my photos are spotted saddle. The breed is very popular around these parts, and continues to grow. Many of these spots, are out of solid TWH mares.

Bubbadog...Glad you'll be visiting New Years! I'll call and give you all the info.

Dude,

I'm certainly not an authority on equine color genetics, but I'll try to help.

In order for a solid TWH mare...to produce a spotted foal (it will have BIG spots)...she must be bred to a homozygous stud. That's homo-zag-us or homo's for short. I can imagine what your thinkin'.

These homo's have distinctive markings...the very small spots are called CAT TRACKS...and they do appear to be cat tracks. The secondary spotting is referred to as INK SPOTS.
To prove a horse actually carries the homozygous gene, a blood test is required.

A homo stud and a homo mare, sometimes DO NOT produce a homo foal. You'll have to get someone with more knowledge that me, to explain this.

I hope this helps!

OHM

Floyd's name is spelled Carothers, but you have spelled it Caruthers..... I have always seen it spelled as it is on his tombstone, which is it?
