  Attention!   LPHC Slate of Officers for 2007 & General Membership Meeting

President:     Kerry Barnes

Vice-President:  Don Roberts

Attention!    LPHC regrets that due to declining sales in the stallion service auction as well as decreasing participation and entries in the futurities over the last four years, the 2006 High Cotton futurity will the last year for our Breeder's weanling and yearling halter futurities until such time that we can again offer the stallion service sale. 

LPHC will offer a full slate of Breeder's futurity classes this year and we have added $7,500 to the purses to be distributed.  The Board also voted to allocate funds for added money to the following classes for the years 2007-2009 as we phase out our Breeder's futurities:

For 2007: yearling longe line, 2 year old western pleasure futurity and the 3 year old western pleasure maturity

For 2008:  2 year old western pleasure futurity and the 3 year old western pleasure maturity;

For 2009: 3 year old western pleasure maturity

LPHC wishes to thank all of you who supported our stallion service sale and futurity over the years.  We hope to be able to revive the stallion service sale and futurity at some future date.


Make plans now to join us for the 2006 High Cotton Futurities at the Ike Hamilton Expo Center in West Monroe.  The 2006 schedule and format has changed to accommodate our exhibitors.  We will have 4 judges this year and will run our Paint-O-Rama over a two day schedule.  Cattle, reining and speed events will be held on Friday, beginning at noon with cutting, with Saturday's schedule including the halter futurities and remaining classes.  The flat rate fee of $150 per horse/per day for unlimited entries will apply!    Our Judges are: John Aipperspach, David Terrell, Mary Ingwerson and Michael Jesch.

Attention! THE LOUISIANA PAINT HORSE CLUB sponsors Paint Horse Shows that are recognized by the American Paint Horse Association.

The American Paint Horse is a beautiful warm-blooded breed of horses. Our horses, which are descendents of the horses that were brought to the New World by the Spanish explorers, are bred for their wonderful white markings, along with superior athletic ability and a sound mind.

While registered Paints are considered "Stock-type" horses, they are extraordinarily versatile horses. The breed is extremely popular and it is a fast-growing breed with approximately 50,000 new foals being registered each year. 

Orren Mixers Stallions The painting on the left is titled "Stallions" and it is by the world-renowned artist Orren Mixer. It depicts the two main coat patterns, Overo and Tobiano. A Tobiano Overo cross, commonly referred to as Tovero, is also seen in the breed, but not in the painting. The stallion on the left is an Overo and the one on the right is a Tobiano.

If you'd like to visit the web site of the American Paint Horse Association, just click on Orren Mixer's "Stallions" painting. You'll find a wealth of Paint Horse information there.
