Ellen and Cookie on the Country Road

This is a note from Ellen Oct. 21, 2010, in New Hampshire who bought Cookie, a TWHBEA mare "extraordinaire".

Hi Melissa
We really had such a good time (albeit a l-o-o-ong drive but def worth it)...Don, Christy, Dave and Sharon made us feel SO comfortable and once again....we truly appreciated your hospitality.  (I missed Theodore (a barn cat), in my room~~
When I left the first time, after buying her, I have to admit that I questioned myself...did I make the right decision; did I get caught up in your farm, relationship w/ you, the newness of a gaited horse etc?.  But coming back the second time, it was great to take her out on 2 trail rides, both morning and afternoon.  It was just the right fit!
So, Cookie has been here 2 weeks today. 
I've trailered her 4 different places to ride w/ friends and she has been wonderful! She's excellent on the ground~~ must have had some long lining training and ground driving as she is unfazed w/ both. Most days, I've just played w/ her~~ round penned, clipped,  etc. I laugh out loud (no kidding) when I ride her, because she's just SO smooth ~~ esp compared to my 17.2 H draft cross.   We're becoming more comfortable each time out ~~ love the fact that she is so forward moving; confident and doesn't hesitate once I ask her to do something. 
That brings you up to date..   I like checking out your site...esp u-tube as I can visualize the area, bridge, creek... Hope all is well with you- Ellen

   

Yes we've got a 6 month old filly for sale that looks just like him.... Princess Sugar Plum $4250
Worlds Largest Spotted Saddle Horse
Saint - born July 2008 - son of our 17h 1500lb Stallion, The Right Hand Man, (Andy) standing at Stud at Walking-After-Midnight Farm. Call Melissa for more colts for sale. (540)303-0569
John says for Saint to be just a baby with very little worldly experience he is already a better horse than many people ever ride.
excerpted from message (Jan. 2011)
Melissa,
Update on Saint. He has continued to mature into a real gentleman and you can't believe how majestic he looks with his new muscles and that long mane and tail.

His easy gaits are smooth and he's gone from good to excellent in riding around our boarding facility here at the beach, he's calm and laid back still.

Right now I am working with all of the horses, especially Saint, using a training system from Eric Bravo, similar to Pirelli but more practical for riding trail horses.

We think that Saint is around 17 hh now but the biggest difference is his weight and muscle gain. Melissa, we have been so fascinated and in love with Saint, more each week even. Its amazing to watch his potential begin to unfold. His mind is really maturing as well, although his is still playful and every bit a big kid.

Saint went on his very first road trip/trail ride and he has had a blast.  We can see a tremendous change in his maturity just from September.

My father finally saw Saint and was blown away by his size and gentleness. He watched me tack up Saint in an open field, untied, just standing patiently, which kind of epitomizes this horse. We also gaited him up the fenceline a couple of runs to show him off and Saint was silky smooth.

Melissa, all I thought of after my first big trail ride on Saint yesterday was regret over having gelded him. I believe this horse is something special, not just because he's big. We have had no motor issues, he moves out however you ask and holds his gait. To be just a baby with very little worldly experience he is already a better horse than many people ever ride. He is awesome.

My stepdaughter is taking Saint out for a trail ride today. Samantha has ridden Saint since we got him and is almost bubbly when she rides him! As Bud Tucker (one of our Tennessee Horse Trainers (931)334-1987 ) told me, Saint is the kind of horse little girls fall in love with.

This is note from our new friend John Dean of Kitty Hawk, NC on Oct.11, 2010. He has purchased 3 horses from us last spring. (I give discounts for multiple purchases!). Melissa B.

"As much as you are tired of hearing about our horses and satisfaction level, you have to understand how amazed we are at your horse picking. We got three from you and those three are beautiful, happy and healthy. Now we can travel with them and do things we never dreamed of. Somewhere in my emails I am hoping to create inspiration to keep doing what you are doing so more and more people can have a safe place to buy good horses.

I am scared to show you pics of Clint tacked in english gear - you will want to charge me more money. He is ripped with muscles and Patty swears I stole him off the carousel.

Tina bought Ginger a Spotted Saddle Horse Breeders and Exhibitor's Assoc. mare from Walking-After-Midnight Farm

Tina bought Ginger from us 2 yrs ago, and periodically comes back to our farm with her daughter Morgan and our good friend Bill Smith and his son Andy to ride on our trails. Here is Tina and one of my most favorite mares EVER, "Ginger". Ginger is so cool looking with this inside out blaze. I just love her. What a fun ride. Morgan (age 8) uses her for lessons too.


Bill Smith and Morgan with her racking pony.

This is a message from Sharyn in Chesapeake, Va who bought Babe from us a month ago. We are now Facebook friends and I am delighted that Babe has such a worthy home. Sharyn is living the life of all our dreams I think. To have a horse come up to my front door to look for carrots....

This makes me so happy. I just can't tell you how much it means to me that my horses can find a home for life with love and carrots?

Thank you to the many many people who have bought our horses. Thanks for the laughing, and the questions, and the late night talks while walking through our pastures. Thanks for the cards and the photos. This is an amazing life. Thank you.

Melissa B.


Babe was a mare we rented to novice riders - she looks to take care of her rider.

Subject: I love Babe
June 16, 2010

Last weekend, I returned to the site of my horrific accident with my other horse. With Babe beneath me, my confidence returned. I will never be able to mount a horse unassisted, but I can now ride without fear. Babe side passes down the extremely steep hills. She is supple and bends around the turns. She listens to my every word and truly takes care of me. She is a horse truly capable of using both sides of her brain. Thank you for giving me back my joy of trail riding! Babe follows me around the yard and knows where I keep the treats. Having the house in the middle of the pasture is awesome. I can see her anytime I want. She has figured out the wheelchair ramp and loves to look in the kitchen door. Another strong hint for the carrots in the refrigerator, lol! I hope I get the chance to trail ride with you in the future.

Once again, thanks for matching me with my best friend!

Sharyn H.



James and Mary bought Chalvez Jan. 2011. We are looking forward to hearing about Chalvez's adventures as he bonds with the Kaye Family and herd. THANK YOU James and Mary. We appreciate your trust and faith that our horses are the right fit for your life.

This is a happy picture! Alex and King Aurthur

Alex, Leliah and Todd of Charlottesville, Va have purchased one of the finest Black and White Tennessee Walking Horses we've ever produced. I think it's another match made in heaven!

I know there are no coincidences in this life. Just the right people are coming to my farm to find just the right horse.

March 27, 2010

This is a poem by Carlee Lawhorne, one of our Barn Bunnies, now growing into a most extraordinary and beautiful young woman, but who will always be, Our Barn Bunny (along with her Sister, Kylie!)

The Lawhorne family still holds the record as our best customers, AND they help us feed and care for all the animals on our farm. They have purchased 5 or is it 6 horses from us (starting in July 2005) ???

We love them very much and appreciate their friendship and SUPPORT through some very sad days here, but that was long ago, and are the reason for some of the very best days here at Walking-After-Midnight Farm.

I wanted to share Carlee's poem and express my gratitude for the Lawhorne Family.

Melissa and Charlie Bailey

When I ride I can constantly hear the sound of hooves hitting the ground,making that "clicky clacky" noise it never stops.

I can also hear the breathing and snorting of my horse as he begins to speed up or feel completly comfortable.  I always seem to feel the breeze,even on the hottest day of wind across my face,feeling high in the air I feel so strong knowing that I'm in control of this animal that is 9 or 10 times my size,but also a sense of vulunurabilt,knowing at any second I can get hurt.

Its all worth it though.I can see all the trees and animals that occasionally just to scare us. I can taste the ice cold drink I have after a long 2 hour ride. Then I anxiously wait for the next day I can ride again,feeling that happiness I get every single time...

Queenie_tennessee_walking_horse_for_sale

Thank you John Dean (and family). For purchasing Queenie and Clown, (who they have renamed "Clint"). (March 2010)

In an email 3 weeks after purchasing these horses John says:

"Clint is really doing great! Yesterday and today we had EUREKA moments together. His status just got elevated to "awesome."

Anyway, just one more thanks. Samantha, my stepdaughter, rode Queenie for the first time and was visibly thrilled (she's 14 so that takes a LOT). Both of these horses are too great to even decribe. I have been riding Queenie in a halter and lead rope and now we have Clint jumping, gaiting perfectly, cantering and picking up his feet no problem. You and your staff and horses get my highest recommendation! It would be very hard to be any happier than our whole family is with these guys."

Luther_Buckskin_Jan_CastleValley

Luther and Jan in Castle Valley, Utah

We love selling horses to scenic parts of the country (and world), this creates the opportunity to travel and visit our horses in far away places.

The friends we make selling horses are so special too. We really enjoyed meeting Jan (and her sister's fabulous handcrafted Jewelry - check out her web page www.abeadabove.com ).

God works through people and the gratitude that I feel for placing horses in quality homes for life brings tears to my eyes, sometimes, late at night as I work on the web page and respond to emails.

Thank you Jan for coming all the way from Utah to give this wonderful boy the home he deserves. He sure is a fun ride.

Brenda and I will be out this summer to see you.

 

Big Red and Nick from NJ

We sure didn't keep this 17h sweetheart for long!  Nick and Red met and it was love at first "running walk".  We are very very proud to have offered this magnificent horse for sale and we hope that Nick will enjoy years of happiness with Tennessee's Finest 17h saddling sweetheart. 

We've also enjoyed Nick's visit's with his wife Donna, and hope to remain freinds with them for years to come as well. 

We meet the nicest people selling horses. It never ceases to amaze me how God brings us such classy customers, who become, our friends.  :)

And Don, well you know how he is about cake (and Diet Coke.... ).  First class folks do deserve a first class horse, and we thank James and Ruby, from the bottom of our hearts for giving our Rosie such a loving home.  We can hardly wait to get out to Las Vegas and see how Rosie has adjusted to the Roulette Tables.  She really is a winner.

So I am going to list the horses sold and dates and names of happy horse owners as I want these very extraordinary people who have bought my horses to know how much I appreciate their trusting me, and how honored I am to have found such wonderful homes for my horses for sale.

I buy horses from my freinds that are also looking to find worthy homes for their tennessee walking horse trail horses.
Janet Moran bought Lucky Dumas on Oct. 24, 2008. This is perhaps the smoothest riding horse in Virginia, except now he's gone to Minnesota.

Floyd has the smoothest, all natural running walk in the state of Virginia.  (Spotted Saddle Horse & Tennessee Walking Horse) His disposition is very kind and we can put kids on his back.  The homozygous term means he's guaranteed to throw spots.  His bloodlines include GLL's Carbon Copy (WGC) and Go Boy's Insignia by Perfectly Spotted and out of Ebony's Rock-N-Roll Lady.

Fury
Sold to Mary and Marc in Florida

Breed: Tennessee Walking Horse
Gender: Gelding

Hi Melissa; Just a note to tell you that the horse we bought from you (Formerly named Fury, now renamed Gator (FL Gator, not 'Gaiter') is a wonderful horse. He has a wonderful disposition, and he always wants to please his rider and has never spooked. He demands to be petted whenever we walk by, and he is almost like one of our weimaraners; (I suspect that Gator would like to sit on the sofa if he could!). We were very lucky to have found a place to have him here in Highlands, NC for the summer and after strengthening his muscles with mountain trails, his gait is even better. He looks glorious with his tail high gaiting around. We love him. We hope that you enjoy this follow up note. Best wishes to you all Mark and Mary Ettinger
