Just to let everyone know......we have submitted our insurance claim and are waiting on them now. SBA must be submitted by midnight tonight so Candi Tumlin Simmons and I are working like trojans to get the paperwork finished in time. The inside arena portion of the barn fell in this week.

05/01/2011

To give everyone an update, we lost two horses this week, and we had several that were injured, more than half of the barn is gone and the whole barn is going to have to be tore down and re-built. All of the staff are safe, thankfully. Please continue to keep us in your thoughts and prayers. love you all~ Donna and the 5W ranch family.

Had such a great time at the state show, and the costume pony class was a hoot! Which got me thinking of all the cool and funny things our horses do on a weekly basis. So I want to hear from all of my friends about their four legged comedians! Post away guys! :)

Developing the Athlete: Athlete? My horse? Yes, the horse you use is an athlete! Donna Witt Preskitt of the 5W Ranch, Underwater Treadmill, through her “whole-horse” program can build an athlete “possessing the natural or acquired traits of strength, agility, and endurance that are necessary in competitive contexts,”[1] such as western pleasure, dressage, hunter jumper, cutting, working cow horse, barrel racing, halter, track racing, reining, etc. The 5W Ranch utilizes a unique, customized, state-of-the-art hydrotherapeutic exercise and conditioning device known as the Underwater Treadmill. The Underwater Treadmill is in-ground, 54' long with a 12' stainless steel treadmill housed in a fully-enclosed, climate-controlled environment for year-round operation. The water is appropriately heated to complement the weather. The Underwater Treadmill was built as a permanent, in-ground structure custom-designed and built to Donna Witt Preskitt’s specifications. The flooring is a steady, cushioned surface with all wall and rail corners rounded for the safety of the horses. Handlers are protected by steel railing that allows full access to horses at all times. The operational machinery is located in an underground, sound-proof storage unit. ~ Purnia Mills Donna say's "It is the only feed on the market that consistently provides the high-quality nutrition demanded by the athletes developed on the underwater treadmill. Through the nutrition provided by Purina Mill® and the use of the underwater treadmill, I can make a guaranteed, measureable improvement in 30 days."

I believe my father worked at this ranch in the early 1950's. From what I've learned by researching old newspaper ads and articles, he worked in and managed the meat processing plant while the ranch was owned by Virgil Hurst. I wonder if you have any old pictures of the ranch from that period? His name was Charles Simmons. There's always a chance this was a different Charles Simmons, but my dad was a meat cutter and processor a good part of his life, so it is probable this is he. From my research, the ranch was once quite a venue for parties, weddings, and vacation get-aways. I've found numerous newspaper articles listing important guests, and even descriptions of the decorations and menus served. I'll gladly share these if you are interested.

I would love to visit your ranch and see the treadmill ☺
Good to finally see horses in the tread again!
You’re getting frustrated because of missing out most of best Cyber Monday Treadmill deals? It will never happened, let us bring them to you this year. Bookmark this site now. http://www.cybermondaytreadmill.com/
Guess who??? Diesel is stopping by to say hi and thanks Ms. Donna!
Apollo is doing great. Has his first show coming up soon. He says hello.
After spending a year with Donna and her staff, Apollo is back to training and doing GREAT. The plan is to start showing him by the fall. We are taking it very slow since he had such a large tear. I could not be happier with his care and recovery. Most folks would have never invested so much time and energy in such an injury. So happy for the faith that they had in him. He is a very special horse!!!!!!
Thank you for the work you are doing. Words don't seem enough. Much love Diesel and Elise.
Many Thanks for all you have done for us. Elizabeth rode yesterday and they look fantastic!!!!!
