Greetings from Ruth and Doug Broadfoot and welcome to our website. We are located near Lynchburg, Virginia and have owned and bred whippets for more than 40 years. We mostly enjoy showing our whippets in conformation and we participate occasionally in racing and lure coursing.
We have had significant success with our breeding program over the years. Three Broadstrider males (bred by us, but owned by others) have proven to be successful and influential sires - Ch. Broadstrider By George ROMX, Ch. Broadstrider’s Gorgeous George and Ch. Broadstrider’s Cordillera. All of our whippets today come down from Ch. Broadstrider’s Georgie Girl (litter sister to the first two mentioned above).
As breeders we are most proud of our record in the Bred by Exhibitor classes at the American Whippet Club’s National Specialty Shows. In 2010 we accomplished a long term goal of retiring the Stoney Meadows Challenge Trophy for Best Bred by Exhibitor at the AWC National Specialty by winning it three times: in 1993 with Ch. Broadstrider’s Gorgeous George; in 2007 with Ch. Broadstrider Ocean Of Diamonds; and in 2010 with Ch. Broadstrider’s Cheers Me Dears, who was also Best of Winners and AOM #2.
We continue to breed on a limited basis and sometimes have puppies and young adults available to qualified homes.
