Fossil Gate Farms, owned by WCHA Founding Members Linda & the late Gary Gordon, pledge $100,000 to WCHA Futurity Programs

Thackerville, OK – Fossil Gate Farms located just south of Denton, TX along interstate 35 West is recognized as one of the premier halter breeders of the modern-day era. Home to industry leading stallions like Very Cool, Execute, Suchan Ego, Grand Slam Touchdown, Image Of Kid, Im Tee Totally Cool, FG A Tru Fella and promising young stallions, FG Ambassador, FG Born Legacy, FG Rising Star and of course the greatly missed, Mr Yella Fella.
The Gordon’s have always supported numerous breed associations and are integral members of the Breeders Halter Futurity. “In recent years, I’m very impressed and enthused with the forward momentum WCHA has taken as a nonprofit association where competitors of all skill levels compete. I wanted to lend a hand in their efforts as Gary and I have done previously with AQHA World Show and The Breeders Halter Futurity Program,” states Linda Gordon, owner of Fossil Gate Farms. “As a founding member of the World Conformation Horse Association I want to give back to the halter industry that has been so rewarding for Fossil Gate Farms.”
“This is HUGE for our programs,” states Don Falcon, Executive Director of WCHA. “Linda’s pledge of $100,000 to our newly formed Weanling and Yearling Nomination Program will supplement purses within the Open, Non-Pro, Intermediate Non-Pro and our Color divisions within our All Breed Futurities. Everyone that participates in our futurity programs will be
rewarded with these additional funds. The nomination program will also supplement halter events throughout the country so everyone coast to coast will be rewarded by nominating their foals with a minimal nomination fee. On behalf of all WCHA members, Thank You Fossil Gate Farms for your generous contribution that will kick off this new decade with optimism.”
WCHA is growing at a rapid pace, last year alone the association saw a 40 percent increase in memberships. For more information about becoming a member, hosting a WCHA event, become a sponsoring partner or any of the other opportunities provided by WCHA check out the website at
