Richard and I work as a team breeding and showing our mares, sometimes geldings but
mostly mares. Richard studies the pedigrees of the different stallions of the breed and
matches them up to our brood mares. When our colts are ready, they go to masterful hands
of Vance Vahle, who trains them and gets them ready for the show ring for me to show. I've
had alot of favorite show horses but I have to say that Kate is a very special mare to me.
Kate is out of Missouri's Minnie D who goes back to the GREAT Missouri Traveler and Toddys
Annetta, 1998 brood mare of the year, and the WONDERFUL Country Jazz out of ANOTHER GREAT
Southern Jazz. We would like to thank all our friends and fans who have supported us along
the way, and also to the NATIONAL BREEDERS CUP for another show well done. And also to all
the sponsor's for without your help this show would not be possible.
