On Friday, Aug. 31, 2007, the Rising Star Ranch breeding division held three drawings as a gesture of gratitude to the customers who supported the RSR breeding program during the 2007 breeding season. The prizes for the three drawings included half off a stud fee to any RSR stallion, a full stud fee to any RSR stallion, and a $5,000 cash prize.

          “We wanted to show our appreciation to the mare owners who supported our program this year, one of the most challenging the business has ever seen. We are extremely grateful to the many customers who stuck with us by showing their loyalty and support for our stallions,” stated RSR owner Frank Eichler.

         The winners of the stud fees were Dale Smith of Eubank, Ky., who won the half off stud fee; 4-J Land and Cattle Company of Waynesville, Mo., claimed the full stud fee to any RSR stallion; and Harold and Glenda Flynn of Deer Lodge, Tenn., were awarded the $5,000 cash prize.

             Eligibility for each drawing was determined by the number of paid stud fees the customer purchased during the 2007 season.
