Blake was a good friend from 4H. He also sold me a beautiful Quarter horse that I was able to show right away. I will always be grateful to know the Zerley family and share their passion for horses.

I am so sorry for your loss. I remember your family from First Baptist Church when I attended there as a teenager. May God comfort you. Jan (Cowman) Miller

Barry, Sorry to hear this he was a good guy.

If you needed to know a pedigree or bloodlines of a horse, he could remember all of them. He could really condition a horse for the show season and ride.

I worked with Blake at Vermeer. I always enjoyed talking with him and he always had a great sense of humor and a positive thing to say. Godspeed my friend! You will be missed!

I will fondly remember watching movies with the Zerley boys and making a very quick exit when a commercial would come on so that I wouldn't get tickled by my 3 older neighbors that were like brothers to me. I remember they would take me horse back riding, thinking I was going to fall off. They would come over and we would race on the racetrack that my dad made me. Spent lots of hours and making memories. So sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
