MILLSAP, Texas — Want a little piece of Texas along the Brazos? Well, Alice Walton has got a deal for you.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports Walton, the Wal-Mart billionaire heiress, is putting her 1,432-acre ranch Rocking W Ranch west of Fort Worth up for sale. The asking price is $19,750,000.

Walton announced in July that she wanted to get out of the cutting horse business to focus on other things, so she is selling off her prize-winning herd of animals at the Rocking W Ranch.

Besides selling the horses, Walton on Sept. 21 and 22 will sell all of the ranch equipment. Over the last 16 years, Walton has owned six championship horses.

Besides a 4,000-square-foot residence overlooking the Brazos Valley and additional quarters for staff and guests, the ranch also boasts professional equine facilities, hundreds of acres of hay-producing land and diverse hunting terrain.

Walton has been quoted as saying she wants to focus her attention on the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, the headquarters for the Wal-Mart companies.
