Tenkula Farm was established
back in the late 1970's by my father bringing home a pinto
pony named Patches for us kids to ride. My mother was
afraid that we would go riding on patches and get hurt and
she would not be able to find us. So she did what she
thought would be the wisest thing to do. Bought an older
mare so she could learn to ride and come with us. Well
that mare was a Tennessee Walking Horse and the only one in
the Thunder Bay area. My parents bought other horses
for the rest of the family so we could ride together. They
were Arabian, Quarter Horse and a pony/arab cross. Everyone
would fight to get the walker mare and because I was the youngest
I would double on her with my older sister. My parent
then decided to find more Walkers for everyone else.
We bought a few more mares and had mixed feelings about the
purchase of a stallion (who turned out to be a gentleman)
and the hobby farm turned into a breeding farm.
My mother has since passed away and my father is always
helping out and I have been running the farm
since 1996. There have been a lot of changes to the farm but
we still are after the same thing. Horses that are honest,
reliable and fun to have. We look forward to being able to
help you to have "the best ride ever".
