all the new horses on the farm, it was a busy, hot summer
2008. We have continued looking for Hackney horses that would
best represent the R. A. Long and Loula Long Combs’ legacy. At
that time we
had eight Hackney horses at Walkabout Farm.
first Hackney horse born on the farm was from American Maid. That baby colt, born June 7, 2008, was very tall from the
moment he hit the ground. When the vet came he said, “This is
the biggest foal I’ve seen for this breed!” We thought it would
be fitting to name him after Loula’s favorite, so he is called
“C R Revelation” (Revie).

foals on the farm are called “C R Affection” (Sweetie) and “C R
Invasion” (Innie). Invasion is half-Arabian/half-Hackney filly,
chestnut with four white socks and white blaze. This filly will
be sold. Interested parties ... please call me at the farm.
and Sweetie will stay with us. We are going to keep Revie as a
stallion and Sweetie is a filly that is bay with black socks,
black mane and tail with a white star on her forehead.
and I have purchased another Hackney horse gelding that will
work for Robyn to drive at horse shows. He’s a little easier to
handle and has a great personality. Robyn showed him at the
American Royal and Longview Horse Park. This is the first
Hackney horse to be driven in a show ring at these two
facilities since Loula Long Combs retired.
new horse is Hartzett Electra Sirius and he’s a copper chestnut,
with four white socks and a white blaze. Like all of the horses
that have come our way, we find out about them, decide to bring
them to the farm, receive paperwork and then learn their full,
real name. Hart’s Momma’s name is “Iona Craigweil Sirius.” A

found a Hackney horse that will match Hart and we’re hoping to
work things out so we can have a driving pair of Hackney horses.
This, too, will be something that has not been in Missouri for
a long, long time.
appreciate any support you can give us with this project to
promote and educate about the Hackney horse.
