I am not sure if anyone knew that Yahoo Corrals in McCall has changed hands. Cheryl Bransford has sold the business to Sky Wilson, who has worked with Cheryl for the last five years. Cheryl had this business for about 25 years, building it up to what it is today, a thriving environment for families and friends to enjoy horse and western experiences. Sky says that it will continue to provide the same services and she would like to thank Cheryl for all she has done and taught her. Congratulations, Sky!
