I hate to be the bearer of sad news, but we have lost our beloved Dick Heiken of Heiken’s Ark in Des Moines, Iowa. Dick and Kathy has been mainstays in our little association for longer than they would like to admit. Their contribution to the breed and our association is unlimited. Dick will be missed by anyone who ever met him.
To all members and watusi owners. We regularly receive a number of questions regarding our registration procedures and rules. A complete copy of our rules is located on this website. If you have any specific questions always feel free to contact Robin at our office or any of our board members, we promise that we will find you an answer.
As most of you should be aware we recently upgraded our website to include a complete listing of all Watusi registered with the World Watusi Association. Members in good standing can access this information at any time by clicking the link at the top of the homepage at watusi.org. Now we are working on our next project.
We would like to make available as many photographs as possible for these registered animals. As you know the registration process provides for photographs to be submitted, however, these are most often taken within the first year of life of the animal. We would request that anyone with more updated photographs of their animals submit them to us and we will place them on your animal’s pedigree page.
Simply send in the photo, give us the animal’s name and if you have it the approximate date that the photo was taken so we can determine the age. Needless to say most of these animals change significantly from birth to death, how they are represented it up to you. This will include all animals, alive or deceased, the more the better.
Every year as our annual membership meeting approaches we prepare for our election of new members to the Board of Directors.
Our membership meeting will be held on September 21, 2016 in Macon, Missouri so we must get our ballots ready by July.
There are three positions coming up for election this year for 3 year terms. If you would like to run or if you know of some other member that would like to run and serve, please contact Pam Jackson, our Secretary, at email@example.com or Cindi Darling, firstname.lastname@example.org or Garett Judd, email@example.com.
This Association belongs to all of our members and as such the determination of our Board of Director’s is important to every one of us. The qualifications are simple besides a desire to serve, one must be an active, voting member in good standing for two consecutive years with no felony convictions. We look forward to more participation.
Duane and Kolene Gilbert http://gilbertswatusiandzebra.com/index.html proudly present this new young bull. Bar G Thunder is an upcoming herdsire just starting his career. His first 4 calves are on the ground and they are taking off running. The future for this guy looks very bright.
Klauss Chief Skull has been the premier herdsire for StarB Texotics for several years. He pretty much speaks for himself. He represents some of the most famous background animals in the bred. He already has 34 offspring to his record and will show his mark on the breed.
