Health problems

We wanted to keep everyone advised that our group is experiencing some serious health problems.  Both Angie Base (wife of our President Vernon) and Pam Jackson (wife of our Vice President, Richard and herself our Association Secretary), are fighting some serious health issues.  We want to wish them both well and let them know that they are in all of our thoughts.

Percentage Watusi

Watusi are registered in multiple percentages from half blood up to foundation pure.  This example from Will Ross of Ross Ranch Horns shows off one of his newest 1/2 blood heifers out of one of his longhorn cows and the  foundation pure Watusi bull BWS Captain Butler.  Will calls his babies Long-tusi.  If you like color, percentage may be the way to go.

Contact Will Ross by email here or by visiting his website here.
