In August of 1998, we were looking for a couple of
good riding horses when we discovered the exciting world of the Tennessee
Walking Horses. First, we purchased two mares in Texas and bred them, then
transported them to their new home at The Cukjati Farm in Franklin, Kansas. The
Cukjati Farm, located at the southern edge of Arma and about eight miles north
of Pittsburg, Kansas on Business Highway 69, was founded in 1912 by
Great-grandfather John Cukjati. At it's zenith, the farm comprised
approximately 1,000 acres that produced wheat, corn, oats, soybeans and cattle.
Since 1998, we have concentrated
on breeding some of the finest flat, light or plantation shod horses in the
Tennessee Walking Horse industry.
In 2006, we decided to return to
Texas for many different reasons and began relocating to an 83-acre Coastal
Bermuda Grass farm in rural Venus, Texas. Venus is a convenient 45-minute drive
south of both Dallas and Fort Worth intersecting Highways 157 and 67. The farm
is about two miles south of Highway 67 on County Road 213. Marilyn's love for
horses began as a child growing up in suburbia Dallas, getting her first pony
at the age of nine. In addition to caring for the horses, she is an avid
photographer and artist painting in oil, acrylic and watercolor mediums. Joe's
love for horses began as a boy growing up on the family's farm with personal
riding horses as well as draft horses. He is now semi-retired after practicing
for 34 years as the owner of The Story Road Animal Hospital and The North
Irving Animal Clinic in Irving, Texas.
