Dear Friends of WHR,
As we close 2018 and launch off at a hurried pace to into 2019, we like step back for a moment, pause and breathe, as a life of working with horses has taught us, to stop and enjoy the moment, the accomplishments, savor the good times, cherish the friends we have made, the lives we have touched, the rides we have taken, the moves and try our horses have given us...to give thanks to our Creator for it all...though not always what we wanted, or expected, it is a grand life, worth living and a world worth loving. To those of you who have come and gone, the horses we have trained, nurtured and sent along into the hands of other aspiring horse people, we are grateful. We have had a good 2018 and look forward to more growth and sharing. Bear with us as we move at a different pace, but moving forward is our theme. We are ever available, continuing to share at whatever capacity we are available to render, and encouraging all seekers in the quest for refined horsemanship to journey along with us. We are planning on a shorter stint in Arizona this winter due to family issues that have put off our departure, but as of January we are packing up and seeking to be down at our Cochise, Arizona Outpost by the end of the month. We will stay through the middle of April, returning to Richland and starting off our season with a class the last week of April. We have eight head of fine WHR geldings simmering on the back burner, and Sparkanic & Waldo, our personal standby boys, are hanging in, as is "Katie Ranch Dog", now seven years old! Sparkanic, at 12, is now officially nicked named "Sparkplug", and Rifkin, Wil's faithful ranch cat who rides on the tractor or four-wheeler hay wagon with Wil, is now 12 too...wow, has time flown!
We wish to congratulate our many clients who have ventured out to work with us this year and are reaping the benefits with their new WHR geldings and acquired WHR horse knowledge. Also to Grant & Kiva Lindaman of Scottsdale, Arizona, for G2's successes this year showing and marketing his renined cowhorses, but mainly on the birth of their daughter Leola and their journey into parenthood. Also to Zeph & Liz Schulz and family of Evanston, Wyoming, as he continues to carve out his name in the horse world with his performance horses and ranch geldings.
Wishing you all a Happy, Successful and Blessed New Year
Beverly, Wil, & Katie Dog
