From the famous Tennessee Walking Horse to the Iroquois Steeplechase, horses have long been a part of Tennessee’s history and culture. Horses are also an essential part of artist Xima Lee’s family farm in Franklin, TN.
Xima Lee’s artwork continues her family’s long history with horses. Lee’s family farm was established in 1935 by Wirt Harlin on the outskirts of Franklin, TN. Within a decade, Harlinsdale Farm achieved renown in the Tennessee Walking Horse industry. The farm was once home to the famous colt Midnight Sun who won first place in the Shelbyville national celebration in 1945 and 1946 to become the first repeat National Champion. Today, Harlinsdale remains a beautiful green space preserved as a park by the city of Franklin. It still home to a number of gorgeous horses each with their own personality. From the inquisitive “Sarah” to kind-hearted “Edwina,” these horses inspire the handcrafted items in Walking Papers Studio’s collection.
