Waterfall Recognition of Champion Breeders



       

Continuing a new tradition at Waterfall Farms, replica ribbons and certificates are being prepared for mail to the breeders of the 2009 World Champions sired by the stallions of Waterfall Farms. This gesture began in 2007 in an effort to bring more awareness to the efforts of the breeders of Tennessee Walking Horses.

"The past 2 years we had a tremendous response of gratitude from our breeders of these horses, when in fact it is we who are grateful to the breeders for their efforts in choosing our stallions for their great mares, waiting up with them at night, foaling them out, taking care of the foals and giving those foals what they need to have the best chance at success. You rarely see the breeders of these great horses in the winners circle unless they still own them. Most admire their "home-breds" from a distance, occasionally seeing them up close at a show." commented David Williams of Waterfall Farms.

"Our replica ribbons and certificates are items that a breeder can hang in their office or trophy case and show their friends their success in a field they enjoy," says Williams.

Each breeder of a World Champion and a World Grand Champion sired by a Waterfall Stallion should expect to see these awards coming in the mail very soon. At the 2009 Tennessee Walking Horse Celebration, offspring sired by the Stallions of Waterfall Farms were awarded 41 World Championships and 9 World Grand Championships. These offspring came from the farms of 33 different breeders.

“Since it’s inception in 2007 we have been able to honor 70 different breeders. In 2009 I am proud to say we have added 17 new Breeders of World Champions to our listing,” said Williams.
