We thank you all – buyers over the course of these two decades; those who helped us grow into one company that is now employing hundreds nationwide (and counting). Most importantly though: YOU THE CONSUMER-your thoughts are important too so please share them anytime.
The Smiths’ love of horses started with a small advertisement in an old magazine and eventually led to them founding one of North America’s most prestigious sale events, The WYO Quarter Horse Sale. This family-owned ranch has been hosting these sales since 1983 when Will first published his challenge on breeding programs for thoroughbred racers while Carole was still enrolled at Stanford University.
Dr. Haywood Shell “Woody” Mintone
Dr. Woody Bellingrath Bartlett, a veterinarian and professor of animal science at Auburn University died on Sunday June 13 after living an exceptional life well-lived; he was 84 years old – the average lifespan for people in his profession isn’t much higher than what it would be if they didn’t choose this career path!
He loved sharing time with others by being someone your family could count on to take care not only their pets but also livestock like cows or horses too and even chickens sometimes when Mom needed fresh eggs quickly instead off cooking them.
When he wasn’t working on his ranch, Woody would spend time with buyers and ranchers at The Feed Lot in Pike Road. He had a knack for finding talent that made him one of the most successful horse dealers around! It didn’t matter what type or breed–if it could walk, jump over barriers then lay its way to success under its own power?woody owned them all up until they were well into adulthood where he got official title papers drawn up before releasing any horses back onto open range land again because life goes by fast.
The spring each year is when the colts hit ground and Woody gets excited. He loves to go around perusing all new foals, checking them out in detail while also showing Auburn University veterinarians what they could do outside of a sterile clinical environment- inviting teachers from both Colorado State university as well as Texas A&M to come help. The large animal veterinary programs at these three universities were especially interesting, he would often visit with professors during their teaching sessions or tours through our ranch.
