Home of the friendly gaited trail horse
Polly Aulton, Summertown, TN
PoJo Ranch has always been noted for having friendly foals. Visitors love walking out in the field and having the horses come to them for attention. The goal has always been to breed horses for the baby boomer generation. Shorter, smoother and friendlier (if that's possible!) are the watch words. Easy gait is another that's about to be firmly embraced. Will there still be names on the pedigrees that you can recognize? You bet but they will be older names; names of horses that started the breed. Call it Heritage, call it something else what matters is that you will get a horse that does the gait for which the Tennessee Walker is famous.
Our Heritage Outcross possibility has foaled a gorgeous red filly who is just full of herself. And the lady does walk. A new arrival to the Ranch is in foal to a homozygous black overo stallion. Temptor's Molly N Motion is a very nice perlino mare who is homozygous cream and homozygous for agouti. She will have a buckskin foal. Unfortunately DeDe slipped her foal. I'm currently pondering whether or not to breed her back. Have no confirmed Betsy Ross in foal. Sheez Picturesque is a new addition. She's a 6 year old Palomino Tobiano she is in foal and will deliver some time in May.
Foals are arriving regularly so watch this space.
When I say friendly I mean it. Dede doesn't care what you do to her as long as you're touching her and making over her. A very friendly 3 year old who is broke to ride and one easy handler. Exceptionally nice mare is on the market for $3250
Winter scene from the Ranch. It's been a year and it's finally coming together. Thank goodness for the neighbors who have better building skills than I! Here are the two new stalls that were built at the rear of the shop; more to come at a future date I am sure.
Searching for a trail buddy? Need some help? I try to keep a list of available, fully trained horses near the phone. This list is not limited to the gaited breeds--Missouri Fox Trotters, Paso Finos and Tennessee Walkers. Although I am trying to convert them I have trail riding buddies in the quarter horse world as well. These horses are being offered by individuals I know, trust, and can recommend. Call for their phone numbers. I also am willing to check out horses for out of towners who believe they have found their perfect horse. For the cost of gas I will look at a horse for you.

PoJo's stallion has found a new home!
Dock's Rock & Roll has been DNA tested to be a gold cream champagne. He is now residing in Texas. Lucky Texans will have a chance to breed to him. He has joined ReGina in Del Rio, Texas.
