Originally, Lor-Hy Goldens (est. 1990), Laura Heyden and her good friend Carol Johnson formed Windy Ridge Goldens in 2006. Carol and her husband Dan, live on 800 acres at the base of Windy Ridge in Malin OR, hence the name.
Windy Ridge is built on the principles that Golden Retriever should be intelligent, of sound temperament, correct conformation and be able to do the job they were bred to do. WR Goldens have the will and desire to please and the style and drive to compete in all performance events. Most importantly, these Goldens are family companions.
Due to health issues, Carol had to bow out of WIndy Ridge, and no longer has any Goldens, but continues to enjoy talking about the dogs and giving her valued input into breeding decisions.
