This one posted on the FB WHT Page by Delaine Freeman Smith. This is her mother, the late Betty Bradford Freeman riding Dixie Darling to the blue back in the 1950's. Delaine was wondering if anyone could identify the trophy presenters or what show this was.

PostSubject: RE: TWH NEWS AUGUST 1966   Wed Sep 28, 2011 11:18 am

It was quite a trip down memory lane as I took the time to read through the entire publication, but I have found that sometimes it leads to references to individuals that I came in contact with when I was "foolin' around with horses". On Page 6, it references the Kirklands of Warner Robins, GA and their daughter, Vanette. In the fall of 1967, I was home from UGA for a weekend horse show in Ashburn (my home town) that had never held an all-breed show previously. When the Kirkland's horse van arrived at the field, it was learned that two of their horses had fallen, with one lying on top of another and the partition between them. Of course, everyone pitched in and the horses were removed from the van with the over sight of the local vets. One of the horses was the gelding referenced in the article, PERFECT PRECISIONwho suffered a large laceration on his near shoulder. All of the horses were being examined when a friend of mine who still worked for the vets (I used to work for them when I was in high school) saw me and called me to come over and assist. Mr. Henry McKenzie, who was a Walking Horse owner and trainer, and responsible for getting me involved with TWH, introduced me to the Kirkland's and their trainer, Bobby Poe. I sat up with the horses over night to monitor their situation and keep them on their feet. The next day, we loaned them a trailer to transport the injured horses home so the trip would be easier than the horse van. I used to see Vanette at horse shows and she would always thank me for what I did for PRECISION. I was really a great memory to see those names. Thanks for putting up with this rambling. sowega

I remember for years both Sam Paschal and Vic Thompson had Gold Plated Tennessee Walking Horse ornaments
like the one above on their Cadillacs. I am sure there were many others who had these ornaments on their cars or
trucks.They were a big seller for many years.

Sowega,

Thank you for your story from yesteryear. I enjoyed reading it. I love hearing folks tell their old stories on here.......wish we could get more of that going on. Stories seem to add a 3rd dimension to this little site and bring forth those "mind visuals" that photos just cannot quite convey. I've always tried to present this place as one for memories as well as trivia and information, so noone should feel like they are wasting space here or taking up anybody's time........that is exactly what we're here for and I think any reminiscings are always pleasurable to read. We can NEVER run out of space here, so yall type all you want!



Razor,

Those hood ornaments stayed pretty popular on through the 70's if I'm rememberin right. I remember the ones wearing the little blankets became popular later on. I never had any of the hood ornaments, but did have several TWH license plates on the front of my little truck back in the day.

I had one of the gold ones also. But it was a stud pose. Sold it in the 90's when Judy Martin had her shop in Shelbyville for around a hundred bucks I think it was. Always thought they were neat, wish I still had it.

It was only our second Celebration but, My father and I and several sitting around
us on the first row of section D in the West grandstands thought that Mighty Sun
and Elmore won the stake in 1961 over B. Major Wilson and Claude Brown.
Mighty Sun was the first horse I remember with the big front end . Maybe he was
ahead of his time. However, Major Wilson did have the best Rocking Chair canter
I ever saw.
