Walkers West Main Page

Here are some photos of people and horses and events from our farm album.  Enjoy.  

I came across this picture from the Grand Opening of Walkers West I and that is me and Tom Pennick, my first trainer, cutting the ribbon for the Grand Opening of the barn.

This is Tiger and Calico.  Tiger is going for the Guinness Book of World Records for the most mice caught in the first year of a kitty's life.  So far he's caught 126 mice.  Calico and Tiger live in the apartment in the barn most of the time.  Tiger frequently brings a mouse to his friend, Calico, since she does not get out in the barn to hunt.  Tiger and Calico were wondering when you are coming for a visit!!
Galye Swift, who did the drawings of Gold Rush and Paint's Cotton, stopped in with her sister. They were in a big motor home, on their way from a dog show in Houston,  going back up to Indiana. They had 36 Dachshunds in the motor home, all needing to go to the bathroom!!!  What a sight.

This is our farrier, Gary Hill.  He comes every Wednesday and is really good.
Bob Langrish was here to take photos of the horses - we did about 10.  Then we took a group picture.  The people in the picture from left to right are Daphne Zimmer (she rode the horses in the ones that were under saddle), Brett Sloan, M. E., Bob Langrish, Doug Smiley, Jose and D'Anna Zimmer (Daphne's sister).
