A Student at Nowata High School, Ashley is following in the family business just as her mother did.
“I never wanted to do anything but ranch,” Julie said. “My sister (Nancy) had other ambitions, but I just wanted to follow Dad around and do what he did.”
In this day and age of scattered families, of children that don’t want to be caught dead doing what their parents did there are still some families that pass their traditions on. At one time most of this family business and culture went to the oldest son, but more and more the girls of the founding ranchers are embracing both the honor and challenge of continuing the life that built the western United States. Ashley Huntington is well on her way to carving out her place in history as one who has chosen that pathway.
Her next show will be the March Mania Show at the Tulsa Fairgrounds March 4-7.
