HUNTER'S ALLEN F-10

     HUNTERíS ALLEN F-10 was foaled in 1909, the property of John Black of Noah, TN.  HUNTER'S ALLEN F-10 was a rich golden sorrel, off hind stocking, star and snip, with a long mane that always gave a wavy appearance.  His extraordinarily long tail touched the ground even when he was in action.  HUNTER'S ALLEN F-10 was also referred to as "ALLEN THE SECOND" (Biography of the Tennessee Walking Horse-Ben A. Green)

     ALLAN F-1 sired HUNTERíS ALLEN F-10.  ALLIS, HUNTER ALLEN'S dam, was an unusual 16 hands tall.  ALLIS is described as "well made, strong and good looking," with a long heavy mane and tail inherited from her sire. 

     The three most prominent male offspring by HUNTER'S ALLEN F-10 are: BROWN ALLEN, LAST CHANCE, AND WALKER'S ALLEN.  The great broodmares from HUNTER'S ALLEN F-10 are too numerous to mention.  Perhaps the greatest was ELLA II, dam of HALL ALLEN, SAM ALLEN and PEARLE.  PEARLE establisher her own dynasty by foaling five outstanding stallions by MERRY BOY, the most prominent of which were MERRY MAKER, REYNOLD'S PRIDE and WHITE MERRY BOY JR.

     MERRY LEGS F-4 was bred to HUNTER'S ALLEN F-10 on at least three occasions.  Two of the foals died as yearlings.  The one that was left was LAST CHANCE.  For several years it appeared as if LAST CHANCE would carry the family of HUNTER'S ALLEN F-10 forward in the male line, TROUBLE, son of LAST CHANCE, won the Stallion Class at the 1940 Celebration, while LAST CHANCESí daughter, NANCY ANN HENRIXSON, won the two year-old filly class at the 1947 Celebration.  TROUBLE sired the dam of WGC MACK K'S HANDSHAKER.  The son's of HUNTER'S ALLEN F-10 provided the breed with valuable broodmares.  LAST CHANCE sired LADY CHANCE, the dam of MERRY WILSON, five times the World Champion Mare.

     The blood of HUNTER'S ALLEN F-10 made another entrance into modern Walking Horses through MIDNIGHT SUN, whose dam, RAMSEY'S RENA, was a granddaughter of the old horse.  Another important point of entry was through MAUDE GRAY, whose dam, MINNIE BLACK, was sired by HUNTER'S ALLEN F-10.  MAUDE GREY foaled an outstanding mare named LYNNIE GRAY.  LYNNIE GRAY was a double HUNTER'S ALLEN F-10 offspring.  LYNNIE was by NEAL'S ALLEN by BROWN ALLEN by HUNTER'S ALLEN F-10.  Another great daughter of MAUDE GREY was NELLIE GRAY.  WILSONíS ALLEN sired NELLIE GRAY.
