On Wednesday, December 20, members of the Walker's community gathered at the site of the new paddocks for a brief ribbon cutting ceremony. In fall 2017, Walker's constructed a beautiful, larger turn-out area in the heart of the open fields directly across from the Frank O.H. Williams Barn featuring 14 individual paddocks of larger and varied sizes. Each is equipped with a Nelson automatic horse waterer to provide a constant supply of fresh drinking water for Walker's horses in all seasons.
