NCWHA Sneak Preview

In The Rain And Cold They Came…
To the NCWHA Sneak Preview

by Linda Scrivner

MONROE, N.C. – At noon on Saturday, March 13, the temperature was 42 degrees and the rain came down steadily, at times in torrents, but the North Carolina Walking Horse Association’s members and friends were not to be daunted. They turned out in large numbers to view the 24 colts that made up the NCWHA annual Sneak Preview held at Baucom Stables in Monroe, N.C.

Baucom Stables’s farrier Rick “Birddog” Greene served as announcer, auctioneer and entertainer as he narrated about the outstanding colts and fillies that were shown to the enthusiastic group crowded against one wall inside the barn. The preview is normally outside but no one minded sharing space to stay dry inside the barn.

Food was served by the youth, with desserts provided by the Ladies Auxiliary. Donated items for the auction included a variety of things from a page in the Walking Horse Report, to a German chocolate pie, painted flowerpots and a concrete bench with walking horses. Stacey Ballard was the winner of a 50/50 drawing that followed the preview.

The North Carolina Walking Horse Ladies Auxiliary had a meeting to plan for its show that will be held on May 16 in Dallas, N.C. The NCWHA Spring Show will be held April 4 in Rocky Mount, N.C. Baucom Stables were thanked for their hospitality as the Sneak Preview always gets everyone excited about the upcoming show season.
