Ailshie Barn Party



On Dec. 22, the Ailshie Stables once again welcomed customers and friends to their annual barn party for a day of wholesome family fun and fellowship. People traveled from Kentucky, North Carolina, Alabama and Georgia to attend the festivities. Everyone conversed about their horses, the industry and the successful 2007 year for Ailshie Stables and the high hopes for an even better 2008 show season. A delicious buffet meal was prepared and everyone had a great time.

Trainer Robert "Slick" Dupree worked especially hard giving customers a peek preview show of the new colts. A special thank you and appreciation was given to Ray and Felix for their valued contributions around the barn and assistance with the horses, all of whom are valued members of the Ailshie's extended barn family.

The Ailshie family has been involved in the racking and walking horse industry for 37 years and consists of three generations. Ailshie Stables is located in Greeneville, Tenn. They would like to extend a special thank you to all of their customers. Visitors and customers are always welcomed at anytime to the stables.
