Thanks to Ortho-Flex Saddles, Nevada, Mo. for the 'Missouri Fox Trotter Saddle' 

Murphy's Hot Dam was born in 1996 at WW's Preferred Stock (the Ward's Farm). She is the daughter of Murphy Brown, which is a direct daughter of Missouri Outlaw and sired by Country Jazz. She was our daughter Vaughan's first pick of our colt crop that year. (we like her too). We wanted her to be amateur owned and trained so we did the training ourselves. Both horse and rider had a lot of fun in the process.

We would like to take this opportunity to say thinks to the following:

  • "Thank You" to God for our family recreation, the great Missouri Foxtrotter.

  • We would like to thank the National Breeders Cup for giving us the opportunity to show our horse at a well organized show.

  • We would like to thank the show's sponsors. Especially Ortho Flex (our prize).

  • We would like to thank Curtice and Cathy Williams for their support. We love you guys.

  • We would like tot thank Gale and Tanga Thompson for the use of their wonderful facilities.

  • We would like to thank Buck Thompson for his farrier services.

  • And finally, we would like to thank everyone for your friendship and encouragement.

Rick, Kristin, Vaughan and A.J.
