Sorry to hear of the passing of Matt Shippit.
Matt was a very special man. He was one of the Okanagan’s last cowboys. He used to tell us wonderful stories about working for Osoyoos rancher Val Haynes in the early days and everyone loved his stories.
The Quarter Horse was his mount. He had a lot of respect for that tough little horse. Matt will be much missed by family and friends.
