TWHBEA Congratulates 2012 Master Breeder Hoyte Eakes

A lifelong horse enthusiast, following a career spent first as a Master Sgt. and Drum Major in the Tennessee National Guard and later as an owner and operator of drive-ins, Hoyte Eakes devoted himself full time to breeding and raising top-quality Tennessee Walking Horses. He and his wife of 62 years, Jane, owned and operated Hidden Acres Farm in Donelson, Tennessee, where they bred numerous horses that went on the success in nearly every division our industry has to offer. Over the years, the Eakes breeding program produced five world grand champions, six reserve world grand champions, 18 world champions, six mare and foal world champions and seven TWHBEA National Futurity Champions. Notable names among these champions include Jewel’s Magic, Magic Bum’s Jewel, Maxie Choice, Bummin Choice and Whoopin It In Command. Hoyte’s love for the breed, love for the show ring, and love for our great industry are legendary. His legacy continues in the capable hands of his grandson Nathan Mills.
