Colonel Sanders
Colonel Sanders with his trainer, Martin Wingenfeld
Sire: Midnight Tango (see: ETWHA site, links: Water Tower Farm)
Dam: Shylock's Co Co Mist

A gorgeous, big and gentle palomino gelding, born June 1994 in Vermont, U.S.A. Height at withers: 160 cm. Currently in training in the German Sauerland (see: Breeders In Europe, Wing Walker Farm)

Colonel Sanders is a quality Tennessee Walking Horse riding horse. He has been trained as a proper Walking Horse and has also been ridden as a "dressage" horse, at a trot.

Right now he's being trained as a Walking Horse again and the pictures at this page show him at his very first workout with Martin, making clear he remembers his inherent walk very well!


As his training progresses, his price may raise, and he'll be ready to be the coveted possession of a rider who looks for a quality Tennessee Walking Horse, prepared for show and competition but also for relaxed trail rides. This horse deserves a good rider and will only be sold to someone who can give him a good home and a sensible ride.

Colonel's sire is the well-known, now deceased, stud Midnight Tango of Water Tower Farm in Vermont, U.S.A.  If you look under Breeding at the site of Water Tower Farm, you'll find more information as well as several pictures of Midnight Tango's offspring. Among them the mare, Tango's Kaleidoscope (she was exported to Europe too) and the prize-winning colt, Tango's Midnight Pride who's a full brother to the Little America mare, Midnight Lunar

So, as you see now, Colonel Sanders is a half-brother to our mare Midnight Lunar. Colonel's dam Shylock's Co Co Mist is still a beloved possession of Colonel's breeders. She's 20 years old now and a beautiful buckskin mare.  The location of Colonel Sanders right now is Kierspe, Sauerland, Germany.

Colonel Sanders has been sold to people in Cologne, Germany, still staying happily at Martin's place where the new owners get riding lessons on him from Martin. Pictures with the new owners and after "Lonel's" move to his new stable to be found here ( ). Thanks Diana and Axel for giving such good care to this special horse!
