TWH Bloodlines

Hi I've recently talk to the first owner of my TWH mare trying to find her bloodlines and she's tracking down the mother and father now but all she gave me at the moment was the mother was a Tina Davis Tennessee Walking Horse.. I've looked it up and I can't find anything on Tina Davis TWH, do any of you know who she is? Any help is appreciated.

What are you thinking? What’s your perspective?

1. There is a Tina Davis associated with horse racing.

2. There is a Tina Davis associated with the NWCHA, National Working Cow horse Association.

National Working Cow Horse Association - NWCHA

They could be the same person --- or not.

3. I cannot find a Tina Davis associated with Walking Horses.

3.1. That means one of two things.

3.1.1. Tina Savis is pretty well known in the Quarter Horse world and may have dabbled in breeding or raising Tennessee Walkers for any number of reasons.

3.1.2. There may be a different Tina Davis who breeds pleasure Walkers, has never shown her horses, and is being confused by someone with the Tina Davis of Quartwr Horse and racing fame.

For example, I have an old foundation Walking Horse that is strictly a pleasure-bred horse. His breeder raised Not-for-show Walking Horses her entire life, in an effort to preserve the old time style and mindset of Walking Horses.

It goes without saying, nobody has ever heard of her but she raised great horses in direct line to some great Foundation Horses because I have my Walker's papers to prove it, lol

4. If Your Tina Davis had bred and sold any amount of show/winning TWH's, her name would be showing up somewhere and it isn't.

I think she's likely famous in the racing and QH world and someone has mistakenly attached her name to Walking Horses because she owned one or maybe even a couple.

I don't belong to TWHBEA so have no way of checking the IPEDS to see if her name shows up on any registered Walkers. This is the best I can come up with and even this is an assumption:)

She could very well have been the owner or lessor of one of those MANY vacant barns you see as you drive down the road.

Is your horse not registered?

I have no idea if she's registered or not, I acquired her through some odd events and I had a lot of trouble tracking down the first owner who had her as a foal, and so far the owner has told me she can get the papers on her, so I have that set in motion so I'm hoping it all goes well. I had no luck on Tina Davis besides the few that were already mentioned.

Did she come with a name that may have been her reg'd name or just a barn name. Reg'd names are often a clue to the bloodlines.

It's just a barn name. I contacted the previous owner and they said she isn't registered, I'm not ever using her for showing so registering her isn't to much of a problem. But knowing her bloodlines is important, the owner said both her parents were registered so I'm just waiting on some names now.

Small update, she isn't positive but she thinks one of the parents names was twisty walking. I've been looking him up but haven't found anything.

If you want to research TWH bloodlines, google Walker's West. There's a whole slew of stuff going back to the foundation horses. My black TWH has Heritage status, whatever that means.

Heritage horses are the foundation stock of the original breed, and that means any breed where someone is trying to preserve the "original" horse.

Although not recognized by the Heritage breeders of Tennessee Walking Horses (as usual they have their own ideas of what constitutes "heritage"), one of my three Walking Horses could be considered a Heritage Horse.

He will be 21 this year. Both his parents were at least mid-20's when he was created. Thankfully I have his papers to do all the research.

He is only five generations from Old Glory on his top side and five or six generations from Nell Dement on his bottom side; both in direct line.

Anybody who doesn't recognize those names needs to visit Walkers West.

That said, nobody would know about my Joker because he doesn't have a show record. He was bred strictly for pleasure by an ethical breeder 100 miles north of me, long before preserving Heritage Horses was thought about. My horse was one of the last of a handful before the breeder retired.

"Twisty Walking" is a very odd name and certainly doesn't seem to follow lineage names.

The plot thickens. I am a person who is always interested in lineage. If the OP can put "kind" pressure on the Seller of your horse to get some legitimate paper names, that would be great.

It is also possible the horses were part of a rescue (at some point in their lives) and the papers were confiscated, which is typical in any breed.

"Twisty Walking" could be something that was made up.

When the OP says:

, things don't quite add up. The first owner of a horse is the breeder and that person should very well at least know who the dam is.

If the person is the FIRST BUYER, how did that person come to find the horse and was the possibility of registry papers ever on the table?

Things just don't seem to add up, where a registered name (for the dam or sire) are concerned. Which makes me wonder if, at least, the dam was a rescue, she was preggars, and you now own the result of that pregnancy.
