Buckskin Tennessee Walking Horses

Holmes Farm Herd - 2013


Here at Holmes Farm Walkers, I am dedicated to producing the best quality flat shod versatility horses available. For years, I have hand selected quality mares to produce horses with great minds and gaits to be used for trail riding, pleasure riding and flat shod show. While color is a bonus that pleases the eye, I strive to produce horses that can give that comfortable running walk gait that makes the Tennessee Walking Horse so famous. Pick your sport; I have a buckskin horse for you.

I like to ride mares, always have and always will. A good mare will be a better ride than an equally good gelding every time. A great many people feel that they have to ride geldings on the trail or in the ring because they have been told that is the thing to do, but if you ever have a really good mare, you will never make a gelding your main riding horse. To me, a mare is smarter, quicker, and more level headed than their male counterpart. I know that mares can come in heat and spoil a good trail ride, but there are ways to manage that now that we didn't have 50 years ago. If started young with that goal in mind, that a mare should understand not to misbehave during her cycle, they can be trained to not show out. A good mare is easy to train because they are smarter than their pasture mate, just as most women are smarter than their husbands even though they think it, but would never admit it. I have found that mares are more sure footed and take better care of their rider on the trail than geldings do. They seem to watch where they are going and don't get as excited as geldings when they get into bad situations.

Who doesn't want a beautiful horse to ride? Everyone will admit that as a whole mares are much prettier than geldings. I like a long neck, a small head, and little ears along with those famous walking horse gaits. The walking horse breed as a whole has been taken from a stub necked, big headed, work horse looking horse to a breed that can challenge American Saddlebreds in looks and beat them by far with their famous gaits.

If you will raise you a good mare, you will have a loving and useful companion for the rest of your life.

These yearlings belong to David and Holly McQuaig from Ok. Aren't they pretty?

My breeding stallion is The Buck Starts Here. He is a perlino Tennessee Walking Horse with a double agouti gene and that is a rare combination. Buck has no Pride of Midnight H.F. blood and is the perfect cross for Pride of Midnight-bred mares. With his old fashioned bloodlines and their proven walking ability and the beauty of the Pride line, his babies show a hybrid vigor both in gait and conformation.

BUCK'S HALF MOON #pending is by The Buck Starts Here and out of Madam Boss Lady, one of the last of the great Pride's Boss Man mares. With his heritage he should be beautiful and he is. Just look at that conformation and presence. He should make a wonderful trail/show horse and a lifetime companion. He will be 15 to 15.1 hands when grown. Foaled 05/20/2016. He is cheap at $2500.
BUCK'S SNOW QUEEN #pending was foaled 05/18/16 by The Buck Starts Here and out of Creamy Chance. Queen is a beauty and will produce beauties. She will be 15 to 15.1 hands and will be strong enough to carry that elk down the mountain. She is all old blood and hits the ground with a square four-beat gait. She will make a wonderful trail mount and a good lifetime companion. The genetics test is in the mail. I think she is a double agouti cremello. Priced at $3000.
BUCK'S BOOGIE WOOGIE #pend. is a beautiful big Palomino colt by The Buck Starts Here and out of Ritz's Gypsy Rose YF. He couldn't have better bloodlines. His mother is royally bred and his sire has all the old blood needed. He can flatwalk beside his mother and nearly keep up with her walking and shaking that head. If you want something extra special for the trail, this golden palomino should fit the bill. He will stand 15 to 15.1 when grown and be a companion for many years. Foaled 04/10/2016. He can be your for $2500.
BUCK'S MONEYLINE #pend was foaled 05/15/16 and is by The Buck Starts Here, out of a great Jose mare. Jose's Moneyline YF should have been bred to Ritz to produce outstanding show colts, but instead I have used her to produce outstanding trail horses. None of her colts can be bought now. They are cherished by their owners. If you want something that will flatwalk and go down the road in a saddle gait with a bit of speed, here he is. Buck's Moneyline will be 15 to 15.1 hands and will do a wonderful gait. He can be the last horse you ever have to buy and he can be your for $2500.
BUCK'S EXTRA CASH #pend is out of Extra's Katie Cash, a daughter of Extra Cash. She has done nothing but produce outstanding foals when crossed with The Buck Starts Here. Buck's Extra Cash was born 05/16/16 and got up walking. She still follows her mother around shaking her head. This beautiful buckskin filly will make you the envy of your trail riding group. She should stand 15 to 15.1 when grown. She can be yours for $2500.
BUCK'S MOONSHINE #pend. - Born 4/24/16, she is by The Buck Starts Here and out of Check My Stats, a Ted Williams Mare. Check My Stats is not only beautiful but she is also a fine saddle mare. She was ridden for a few months by Howard Hamilton and turned out to be a great trail riding mare. I believe Moonshine will take after her mother. She will be a golden palomino and should grow to 15.1 hands. If you look closely at her nose you will see color coming in now. She can be yours for $2500.
BLUE CORN MOON #pend - Born 04/28/16, she is by DLK Blu Double, who is a blue roan stud with old bloodlines and out of Bingo's Skywatch, a mare with great new bloodlines. They made a wonderful cross because this filly can walk and shake beside her mother. She looks black in this picture but in a few months, she will be as blue as the sky. If you want something nice that will get you noticed on the trail, take a close look at Blue Corn Moon. She will be about 15 hands when grown and is cheap at $2500.
BUCK'S PROUD ONE #PEND - Born 04/25/16, he is the perfect buckskin Tennessee Walking Horse colt.  The only white on him is a small star.  He is by The Buck Starts Here and out of She's A Home Run who is the mother of my World Champion show mare, Coach’s Cheerleader.  He would be a great flatshod show prospect, but an even better trail horse.  He will be a big horse when he is grown - at least 15.1 but probably 15.2 hands.  If you like the best, here he is.  He will make you money at $2500.
COACH'S CHEERLEADER  #21002451 - Coach's Cheerleader is a black Tennessee Walking Horse filly, born 10/01/2010. She is by World Grand Champion, The Coach and out of She's A Home Run, a Ted Williams mare. This filly is beautiful and has the best of modern bloodlines. She has a long, reaching stride as she moves beside her mother. Coach's Cheerleader just became the 2015 Four-year-old World Champion Mare. Selling cheap for a filly of this quality. Private treaty.
