WILSONS ALLEN dk ch. H, TENNESSEE WALKING HORSE, 1914
Color: dk ch
BRED BY: Bud Messick, TN OWNER: B.F. Wilson, Pelham, TN. Sire of 482 foals. Wilson's Allen was foaled on Bud Messick's farm in 1914. There was considerable talk among breeders when Roan Allen F-38 was mated to his own half-sister.Steve remembers him as a colt that could really walk, he`d walk and shake his head and slobber, and he could come up and go yonder.There was little in the horses early life to indicate the prominent role he would eventually play in the history of the breed, but by the time he had died of pneumonia. Wilson's Allen was dead after the first Celebration was held (1939), his record of winners is almost unbelievable. Is in the TWH Hall of Fame. Some sources say he was foaled in 1917. Yet one of his foals was foaled in 1919, making it unlikely he was foaled in 1917.
