August 30, 2012, Weatherford, Tex. – Western Bloodstock, the performance industry’s leading auction company, announced today that Jim Ware has resigned to pursue personal interests

“We wish him all the best,” said Milt Bradford of Ware, who along with Bradford and Ben Emison established Western Bloodstock in 2000. “But it is business as usual for us with three important sales this fall, in addition to the NCHA Futurity Sales in December.

“We are excited about the future, which looks very bright for the cutting industry with the increase in international buyers and breeders,” said Emison, who has 37 years experience as a cutting horse sale producer. Bradford produced the very first NCHA Futurity Preferred Breeders Sale, in 1990.

Western Bloodstock’s 2012 venue includes Husby Cutting Horses Complete Dispersal, on September 26 in Weatherford, Tex; the Marvine Ranch Reduction Sale, at the ranch in Weatherford on October 20; the HeadQuarters Working Ranch Horse Sale, on November 10 in Amarillo; and the NCHA Futurity Sales at Will Rogers Equestrian Center in Fort Worth, December 10 through 15.
