LAPD and Baucom Arrest Dobson Competition

by Janet Bullis

DOBSON, N.C. - The North Carolina Walking Horse Association Spring Show was held on April 26 at Fisher River Park in Dobson, N.C. This show had been slated for earlier in the month but was canceled due to rain. The April showers were still around but thankfully it did not start raining until later into the show.

Even through the rain, six strong entries competed for the Stake title. It was the team of Chad Baucom and LAPD who were called out of the lineup to be named the NCWHA Spring Walking Horse Stake Champions for the Joey Tidwell family.

Jerry Collier of Rogersville, Ala., took on the duties of judging the 31 classes. Show Manager Janet Bullis reported a total of 135 entries for the show. During the intermission, the crowd was entertained by a dog show held by the youth council. Several talented entries competed for the honors, but Dixie, a boxer, and his handler/owner, Lauren Whitley, claimed the top prize. Also, during one of the classes, a youth judging clinic was held.

Baucom Stables and Helms Farms led the blue ribbon tally with five wins a piece to their credits. Coley Town Stables captured four wins; Mike Klutz of High Hope Stables was called to the winner’s circle on three occasions; Ronald Mosley Stables, Bonner Stables and Danny Kistler Stables each were awarded with two wins.
