Mr. Joe Taylor is the owner and curator of the Mt. Blanco Fossil Museum and associated companies. He was born and raised near Crosbyton at the Mt. Blanco community. As a young man he left the area for art school and a career in commercial illustration and advertising design in New York City and Los Angeles. During this time he volunteered at the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles, California where the saber tooth cat skull which we reproduce is from. His interest was sparked by the rich local fossil deposits and a desire to find out the truth about fossils. The results of this interest are seen in the museum. Mr. Taylor is one of the nation’s foremost fossil restorationists and his work is sought out by individuals, museums and other institutions in this country and abroad.

Growing up on a small family farm with her parents and ten siblings, Rebekah's passion for animals and farm life developed with a lasting fervor for horses.
Rebekah's Christian parents provided her with an excellent, homeschool education. For several years, she worked as manager and trainer of Bar H Farms, a family business that specialized in breeding, training, and selling small children's ponies. Rebekah's love for working with children and horses was combined in offering riding lessons, first to her seven younger siblings and then to the public in 2003. In the summer of 2005, Miss Holt received certification through Certified Horsemanship Association as a professional riding instructor and in July 2011, Rebekah completed PATH International's (formerly NARHA) Registered Instructor certification.
