Zachary Taylor - When the former Major General of the US Army moved into the White House, he took his beloved warhorse Old Whitey with him. Itís said that Old Whitey would often graze in the White House lawn and it was common for visitors to pluck a hair or two for a lovely parting gift.
Andrew Jackson - Old Hickory had a famous thirst for sport and bred thoroughbred racehorses on his Tennessee estate, The Hermitage. When he left Nashville for Washington he brought his stable with him. Thatís right, the White House became a fully functioning breeding, training and racing operation.
Blueskin - Blueskin was a gray horse ridden by George Washington. He was one of Washington`s two primary mounts during the American Revolutionary War. The horse was a half-Arabian, sired by the stallion "Ranger", also known as "Lindsay`s Arabian", said to have been obtained from the Sultan of Morocco. Blueskin was a gift to Washington from Colonel Benjamin Tasker Dulany (c. 1752Ė1816) of Maryland. Dulany married Elizabeth French, a ward of Washington`s, who gave her away at her wedding to Dulany on February 10, 1773
