For me the journey and love for a gaited horse started around the age of 5 when my grandmother Jo, used to baby sit me, from the back of a well gaited horses. I learned at a young age how to trick grandmother into giving me the Big Black Walking horse Stallion and she had to ride the gaited pony. I saw he could go faster, he was a racking horses and what I didn't know then, I do now was he was a darn good one two. Not to mention a splendid baby sitter. His name was Talisman,( which means good luck) and for all of my family he brought great luck, wonderful off spring and many great memories
.Talisman sported foundation greats such as Midnight son, Society man, Allen F-1 and many others. His calm, dependable nature made you love a walking horse even if you never met one before. He had many purebred foals, but some of his most beloved were our cross-bred, Grandma had a half Arabian racking horse sired by Talisman that racked 40 miles per hour. Even at today standards he was FAST.
