My father is, without a doubt, one of the most patient men in the world. He is also caring, kind and intelligent. I have never known him to think of himself first in any situation. He is just a wonderful person who is admired by all who know him. Yet, he is humble enough to have no idea that people hold him in such high esteem. He is truly someone to emulate, and I do!

My dad has been my hero for 24 years. He is the heary and soul of the person I am today. My dad has bedn there every day to help me on the farm. Since I am going back to college and still working full time I know my horses will be taking care of because of his gentle heart and hard work. Everyday no matter rain or shine he is out therre helping me with hay and doing stalls, and cleaning the fields. My dad knows hard work, he has work 60 plus years in his life and not once ask for anything but my brother and I to be taken care of. He has been faithful to my mom for over 45 years and today i still know what true love is about. Over the past year my memaw has passed away and my pepaw has been grieving. My dad everyday goes over there for over 3 hours to spe"d some time and give him company. My dad does this with his kind heart and never ask for nothing. My pepaw is on my moms side so I know family comes first to him. My dad is my role mocel and my hero has been and will forever be my number one person.

After retiring, my Dad has spent more than 20 years volunteering at an elementary school; what an inspiration!

My father passed away in 1981, but he taught me that I could do anything that I put my m ind to, I never had to ride a bad horse, because he always trained the good ones and he said that if you did not have anything good to say, do not say anything.

My day is the greatest dad anyone could ask for he has been married to my mom for 25 years but for the last 8 years they have been separated but still living in the same house. They have been doing this so that me and my bother didn't have to be split from one of them. This is what makes my dad very special always thinking for others and not for himself.

A fellow trail rider asked my dad "why do you bring your kids with you?"
Dad replied "they are not just my kids they are my friends!"
Us three girls were young adults at the time. My sisters and I are very blessed to have our dad. He has even influenced other kids over the years whose fathers were not being a "dad".

My dad means the world to me. He is very special and has been by my side in helping me the young gentleman I have become. He continues in supporting me in my rodeos. My dad has been such a great teacher he has taught me how to ride a horse and how to rope. He continues to be the best coach for my success at the new Mexico junior highs. With out his support, teaching, and coaching I would have never made the trip to the nationals junior high rodeo in team roping.


My Dad has always supported my passion/love of horses since I first began begging for a pony when I was five. He got me my first pony, Candy, who I rode until I spotted a Bay Quarter Horse/Morgan cross barrel horse at the horse sale I was attending with my girlfriend. When I got home, I begged him to please come a just look at her. It took me two hours to convince him, but he finally gave in. They had just started bidding on her by the time we got back to the sale, and he bid for her without getting to check her out first, trusting my judgement. Needless to say, Babe came home with us, and I was the happiest kid alive!

After growing up, marrying a sailor, I was not able to have horses due to always moving with the Navy. After 30 years of having no horses, and being on my own once again, the opportunity came to purchase a small farm, and there was Dad once again. He helped me purchase a beautiful Quarter Horse mare in foal, and I now have a beautiful sorrel mare, Gypsy, and a black mare, Dusty. They are my life, as I have fibromyalgia, and on the days when the pain is at its worst, I go out and spend time with my girls and the pain isn't so bad.

My Dad has always been there for me in so many ways, but his understanding of my passion for horses has meant the world to me. I love you, Dad!

A father is a unique person who is responsible to properly raise his children, love his wife and provide for all the family everything that they need. It is not an easy job when he also has to go out every day to work so that he is able to afford all of the needs. Most times this is not appreciate but only when he passes away is when we realise what he meant for everyone. My dad passed away two years ago and to this date i think of him every day. Love you dad.
