2005 Lifetime Achievement Award

Ken Colbert - 2005 Lifetime Achievement AwardMr. Colbert,

It is my honor to inform you the Board of Directors of the North American Saddle Mule Association has awarded you the 2005 Lifetime Achievement Award.

Those nominating had this to say about you.

“It is my feeling Ken Colbert has gone beyond the call of duty in getting NASMA back into the hands of the membership during some very trying times in 2005. He invested hours of personal time, a vast wealth of knowledge and a great sum of money to have the membership gain control of an organization he feels very strongly about.”

“Ken is very concerned about the organizations growth and the proper promotion of mules and donkeys to fellow NASMA members and the general public.”

“He is involved in quality breeding programs for both mules and donkeys, enjoys both trail riding and showing his animals, and has the welfare of the NASMA youth program at heart.”

“I think Ken Colbert meets all of the guidelines set by this association as a Lifetime Achievement Award recipient. He has only the best interest of this association in his heart. He wants to maintain the association for his children to enjoy in years to come. He is a considerate, articulate and truly cares about his mules and donkeys.”

This recognition by the Board of Directors of NASMA has also been conferred on:

Paul and Betsy Hutchins, Denton, TX
Dr. Robert Miller DVM, Thousand Oaks California
Dr. Tex Taylor, Bryan, Texas
Meredith Shultz Hodges, Loveland, Colorado
Sue Cole, Bland, Missouri
Ron Clayton, Grand Canyon, Arizona
Bonnie Shields, Sandpoint, Idaho

We  appreciate your commitment to mules and donkeys and the ideals of the Association. Congratulations.
