Fifth Annual Waterfall Colt Preview Held At Calsonic

by Stephanie Rose

SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. - People came from all over to attend the fifth annual Waterfall Farms Colt Preview. A huge crowd came out to see this year’s crop of colts by the world champions of Waterfall Farms. It was a little different this year because it was held at the Calsonic Arena in Shelbyville instead of the arena at the farm. Calsonic was a great place to have it because it was a good set up for the function and it was much more open. It had space for many more people. As tradition has it, they once again served the wonderful hot chili and beverages for all the hungry patrons.

David Williams, operations manager of Waterfall, did a great job at making sure the preview ran smoothly, along with all the Waterfall team, including this year’s announcer, Woody Woodruff. There were over 75 two- and three-year-old fillies and colts presented. Many of them looked to be top contenders for the 2009 show season. David Williams commented on the preview by saying, "We were very pleased with the huge turnout that we had. It continues to prove that The Tennessee Walking Horse is enjoyed by spectators as well as participants. Everyone likes to get that first glimpse of the new models coming out and that is what the Preview provides. I want to thank Doyle Meadows, Jimmy Burton and the Celebration for their help in our venue change. I also want to thank everyone here at Waterfall for doing a great job; they make it happen." The colt preview can be viewed in its entirety at

Waterfall Farms is now booking for the spring breeding season. Call 931-684-7894 for more details.
