Llamas with a Purpose Livestock Destined for Service As a child, I spent many hours in my grandmother's shadow listening to her stories and watching as she effortlessly crocheted blankets, Afghans and shawls. The skeins of yarn she selected were hand dyed with dried flowers which hung year round from old beams in our barn. She had a passion for dying these yarns the colors of twilight - gold, deep amethyst and crimson red. Today, I have adopted these brilliant hues as my own signature colors for dying Texas alpaca and llama fiber. My grandmother's crochet patterns were stitched from memory rather than drawn from instructions on a printed page. It was from the threads of her own childhood memories that she was able to weave animal characters into the stories she created to fascinate me. Her imagination drew not only from her own animal family but from century's old myths, legends and European folklore. She filled these stories with animals who were triumphant and who managed to help humans enrich their own lives along the way. Most notably, the animal characters who so vividly captured my grandmother's heart and imagination were always twins. There were twin deer, twin sheep, twin goats and many other twin creatures. These twins were storyline heroes. They were born in thought with a purpose and they were destined for service to help persons with the greatest needs overcome difficulties. At the end of October, twin llama crias were born at my ranch. I believe they were born with a purpose and they are destined for service assisting veterans diagnosed with post traumatic stress

Here is a list and information below of the committee liaisons.

ALSA Committee members are selected by the Chair of the Committee and serve a one year term starting July 1 of the current year. The Committee Chair is selected by the BOD liaison of the Committee and also serves a one year term starting July 1st of the current year. The exception to this is the Regional, Grand National, and Fiber Committees which serve a one year term starting December 1st of the current year - following the conclusion of the Regional and National shows of that year. As Committees are selected, it is recommended that members are diversified as to their geographic regions to offer complete membership representation. Committee Chairs should submit a Committee Report to their BOD liaison for each month’s BOD meeting after it has been approved by all their committee members. (Minutes 8-15-06) Recommendations from committees are to be a consensus of the majority of Committee members, not just the opinion of the Chair. It is helpful for the BOD to even include the total votes (not names) of the Committee members on an issue in your report.

Office Talk Happy New Year everyone! I hope your Christmas/Chanukah Holiday was wonderful and you’re ready for a New Year with your Llamas and Alpacas! In case you missed it, announcements made during the 2017 Grand Nationals were amazing! At the dinner on Saturday night, we issued THREE youth their “Ultimate Youth Awards”; Maura Benton, Cooper Sims, and Megan Bixler. To earn this award, these youth had to earn 6 1st places in Showmanship and Obstacle and two 1st places in Pack or PR.... no small feat! Kuddos to you two and to all of our ALSA youth! Please follow this link to see all of our “Ultimate Youth” in which there are many! http://www.alsashow.net/champwyth.asp Also during the 2017 GN announcements we also added an “Elite Champion” to our list of only 17 Elites in all of ALSA history! The animal earning his “ELITE” is KAZA owned by Tracy Ames and shown by Lisa Labendeira and Kayla Rogers of California. This Elite achievement is the highest award that an animal can earn. It has been in effect since 1995. These llamas have achieved the title of ALSA Elite Champion by earning six Grand Champion titles at Halter and six Grand Champion titles at Performance in ALSA shows. Intact males or females have also earned a First Place win in Get of Sire or Produce of Dam class. Please follow this link to see all of our “Elite Champions”: http://www.alsashow.net/elite.html If any of you feel you have earned this award or any other award and your name is not listed OR you don’t have the certificate, please contact the ALSA office and let’s get you the award you deserve. You may be on this list or on another list and have not received your certificate. So please, let’s get you one. AND please remember, that I can only fix something that I know about! SO – if you think there is an error in posting OR with your awards, please tell me! It is time for everyone to renew their memberships here at ALSA. Last year many of you waited until you had a show to attend. Please do this now! If you have not renewed your membership at ALSA or want to join ALSA, please contact the ALSA office or follow these links: For an online form: https://alsashow.sitestreet.com/alsashoworg/secure/membform.html For a printable form: http://www.alsashow.net/printform2016.pdf 2018 ALSA Membership cards are being sent out now! If you don’t have yours yet, and you’ve renewed, don’t worry – it’s coming. If you wish, please feel free to contact the ALSA office to check or get an email confirmation for an upcoming show entry until your card arrives! One of the “perks” for having your membership renewed NOW is the ability to run for an office in the 2018 General Election! The new 2018 General Election Process will be posted on our website here soon, http://www.alsashow. net/election.html . There will also be email blasts sent out! Please get involved in your Association! This year we will have several positions available for members from all areas of the United States! 8 ALSA Showring Magazine Winter 2017

Another benefit of having an ALSA membership is the entitlement to have a FREE copy of the latest Handbook, the 21st Edition ALSA Handbook. This will be mailed to you. (There was not a new Handbook printed for 2018 so if you received a Handbook in 2017, you will not receive another one.) The current Handbook took effect on January 1, 2017 Please, one handbook per household. If we have any changes for the 2018 show season, we will be sure to let you know. The 21st Edition ALSA Handbook is on the ALSA website here: http://www.alsashow.net/FINAL%202017%20 21st%20Edition%20ALSA%20Handbook.pdf The LIFETIME members are being asked to contact the ALSA office to verify their address. LIFETIME members, you will not receive a handbook unless this is done – we haven’t heard from some of you, LIFETIME members, for a very long time – you could have moved – or you don’t want or need a handbook! Please contact the ALSA office if you would like one! Thank you. Also, if you’d like a pdf to put directly on your desktop, laptop, tablet, etc., please contact the ALSA office. We know that many youth prefer this method so they will not automatically get a Handbook. Please call the office if you would like one! Thank you all for understanding this process! Our shows for 2018 are also starting to get posted on the website here http://www.alsashow.org/nshows2003.asp This ALSA calendar of events updates daily. If you don’t see a show that you’re used to going to, and you think it should be listed, don’t hesitate to call. And may I please remind all of our superintendents to get your shows sanctioned early. Your attendance at your show should increase if you do this now! There will be an email blast each month announcing shows on the ALSA calendar for that month and the next upcoming month – good exposure here! I hope each of you enjoyed this letter and the good news within! Good luck to everyone with your showing this year! Remember that I am here for you! ALSA Executive Secretary,

syndrome ("PTSD"). Both twins are female and they are healthy. I attribute their good health directly to the quality of food, nutrition and care of their mother. Their dispositions are sweet and inquisitive. With proper care and handling, the twins will add value to the lives of veterans with PTSD who have served our country. The Veterans Administration National Center for PTSD describes PTSD in user friendly terms as a mental health problem that people develop after witnessing a life threatening event. In early years, PTSD was classified solely as an anxiety disorder. The American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Diagnostic Disorders has now re-categorized PTSD as a Trauma and Stress Related Disorder. Government statistics demonstrate that over 600,000 veterans are being treated at Veterans Clinics across the country today. Statistics also show that less than 50% of veterans and service members ever seek help. The numbers are staggering. I have had the privilege of assisting veterans and war heroes diagnosed with PTSD for a number of years through the American Bar Association's volunteer lawyer program. This program provided initial training and attorney certification through the US Department of Veteran's Affairs ("VA") in exchange for handling veterans appeal cases. Appeals require new and compelling evidence.

These cases created the opportunity for me to work with VA doctors, psychologists, psychiatrists, clinicians, therapists and many other specially trained mental health professionals in gathering new evidence to prevail on appeal. Most importantly, I was able to work directly with the veterans themselves. These veterans were trying to cope on a day to day basis with the trauma, stress and anxiety associated with PTSD. The veterans cases have helped me understand the severity of PTSD as well as learn about the therapeutic tools adopted by health care professionals to assist veterans with PTSD. Under the right circumstances, animals can be an important therapeutic tool. From a holistic standpoint, this background has provided in depth insight into the possibility of incorporating llamas at a higher level in Animal Assisted Therapy ("AAT"). Many alpaca and llama ranches are effectively using their animals in AAT programs at hospitals, schools, churches and nursing homes. Some ranches have even developed a special once a month day for veterans and their families to enjoy the llamas. These heartfelt events raise visibility for veterans and they provide a wonderful family gathering to show appreciation for those who have served our country. Please consider hosting a similar event at your ranch.

13


While these events would be a good start for the twins, the ultimate goal would be to leverage existing relationships with VA healthcare professionals to include llamas in the plan of care developed for VA patients diagnosed with PTSD. At present, AAT and Animal Assisted Activity ("AAA") dogs are being used in medical settings to assist VA therapists to accomplish therapeutic goals and for social engagement of patients. Studies reveal that these dogs can aid in the healing process at VA Medical Centers. Handlers and their dogs work with goal directed treatment plans for patients. Including AAT and AAA dogs in a patient's plan of care has been proven to lower the veteran's blood pressure, reduce stress and increase motivation in therapy. Guide dogs, service dogs and certified AAT dogs are accepted as visitors at VA Medical Centers. Upon advance written approval, handlers may request an exception to enable other AAT animals to visit the VA facility. In two years time, I hope to include the twins in monthly visits on a volunteer basis at local VA clinics to assist veterans with PTSD under the supervision of a VA mental health provider. With documented results, this program should help to build credibility and raise visibility for the use of llamas directly in therapeutic care programs for veterans with PTSD. In working with the VA, documented results are important particularly if a program is allowed to continue. In addition to the VA Clinic attend local fund raising events for develop a brochure outlining PTSD of helpful resources; and they may participate in other volunteer veterans. With the passage of time, the lives of many veterans. I believe heroes like the twin animal characters stories so long ago. Their lives will be they help those persons with the great-

visits, the twins may veterans; they may symptoms with a list activities with the twins will touch they will be storyline in my grandmother's filled with purpose as est needs along the

way. Many of the equine assisted service dog trainers that I have

therapy farms and contacted are anxious

to follow the twins in their volunteer efforts. I am grateful for their support and I hope you will also support veterans in your area in some special way Cynthia Masters Rancho do Santo Domingo Waller, Texas

National Llama Day National Llama Day is a celebration of mankind’s appreciation of nature’s finest llamas. It occurs each year on December 9th and lasts from sunrise to sunset. The History: National Llama Day began in 1932 in Manitoba, Canada when the llama’s importance was first recognized during a drought which killed a significant number of livestock, especially sheep, thus proving how helpful the llama truly is. What do celebrants do on Celebrants dress as llamas, statues, sing llama songs, oriented games, and break Usually one family member an elaborate llama costume children while granting them of llama fur is traditionally acts as 'mistletoe' to the

Typical Llama Day feasts: For dinner, a traditional Llama Day feast involves stuffing a partridge using sacred family spices. After dinner, children dressed as llamas go from door to door asking for Llama Day treats, occasionally releasing llamas on the occupant’s lawn if their request is refused. How does it begin? Llama Day is often begins with Llamatines, cards sent to loved ones that may or may not include llama-shaped candy pieces. The Llamatines are a piece of card usually depicting a llama say '.......................... I Love You'. 24 ALSA Showring Magazine Winter 2017

Hello Everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Halloween and for those of you that showed at Nationals a wonderful show and congratulations on your achievements. Getting down to business I want to thank the ones of you that donated items to the auction, that made the auction so much larger with your donations. Also a big thank you to EVERYONE that bid on items in the auction your generous contributions send our youth to college. We decided that we had so many great items that we ran the auction over two days, we had items out on Friday that closed 10 minutes after the last class was completed and another one ran the same way Saturday with all new items. Our high seller this year was in Fridays auction and was a llama printed clothes hamper. The total raised for our youth was $1,344! That is over two and a half scholarships. I am very proud to help represent our youth and look forward to what the money can do to help our youth with education. Also we had a generous sponsor this year that donated $250 to the youth that showed at the grand national this year. Glenna and I spoke a lot about what this could be used for that would directly benefit our youth and decided to divide it amongst the youth. We had 25 youth showing this year so each one got $10.00. The youth all seemed very happy about this and we really appreciate the donation. Hunter Williams Chair of the ALSA Youth Committee

FYI..........Worth Checking Into

"NOT FOR HIRE" IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH - HOW THE ELD MANDATE WILL IMPACT THE HORSE INDUSTRY As a breeder, owner, trainer or competitor in the horse industry, it is important to understand the implications of the ELD Mandate that will be hitting the transportation industry in December of 2017. The facts are that unless we all speak up you may be required to install an electronic logging device (ELD) in your truck. There are some exemptions in place for farm or agricultural hauling where an ELD would not be required. However, many of the rigs used for hauling horses and the activities horse owners participate in, especially those that frequently travel to horse shows, fall outside the allowed exemptions. What is the ELD Mandate? In 2012, President Obama signed the bill Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century. A part of this bill included a provision requiring the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to develop a rule mandating the use of electronic logging devices (ELDs) on commercial vehicles. Do we have to comply since we are hauling horses, not cattle or other livestock? Yes, horses are livestock and are specifically listed in the transportation bill language. It is not just the horse industry that is facing the ELD Mandate. Families that show cattle, pigs and other livestock and travel long distances to show and compete will be impacted as well. It will also impact any other type of activity or hobby that requires a large vehicle and trailer and where there is the potential to win money in competitions. The ELD Mandate requires that your vehicle must be fitted with a device under the following conditions: • Your vehicle is a commercial vehicle (see below) • Your activities fall outside of the exemptions allowed for agriculture and livestock transportation. Most who show horses will fall outside of the exemption requirements. (see below) • You are required to obtain a Commercial Driver’s License due to the weight of your truck and trailer (see below)

54 ALSA Showring Magazine Winter 2017

Alpaca & Llama Show Association


The “Not For Hire” myth: It is not uncommon to see “Not For Hire” graphics on trucks and horse trailers. The idea behind this is to avoid certain Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations. This is an old fable that does not protect those hauling horses from fines for non-compliance. A “Not For Hire” sign on your rig will not protect you if it is determined that your truck and trailer fit into the commercial category or are being used for commercial purposes. Nor will it protect you if you are driving a vehicle and trailer that requires a commercial license. A recreational vehicle exemption does not always apply: Living quarters horse trailers can be classified as recreational vehicles for private use. This classification exempts both the truck and trailer from being considered commercial as well as the requirements for the driver to obtain a commercial driver’s license. However, if an officer or inspector determines that the truck and trailer is being used in “furtherance of a commercial enterprise”, then the driver and vehicle are out of compliance with FMCSA regulations which can result in fines and being detained for an extended period. For example, we have been made aware of situations where the owners of truck and trailers stopped by the Highway Patrol or other inspectors, were required to both obtain a Department of Transportation (DOT) number for their vehicle, and find a driver with a commercial driver’s license in order to resume their trip. In these cases, once the ELD Mandate is in effect, the drivers could also have been required to purchase and install an ELD unit. (see below for clarification about the meaning of “furtherance of a commercial enterprise”) What does an ELD do? The ELD or electronic logging device synchronizes with the engine of a vehicle and keeps track of hours of service. It logs driving time, vehicle speed, routes, and keeps track of mandated rest periods as well as other data points. Once the vehicle is in motion and reaches 5 miles per hour, the ELD keeps track of time for the next 14 hours – nonstop. Under the standard ELD regulations, there are no provisions to account for traffic, fueling, or loading and unloading. In those 14 hours, drivers are only allowed to drive for 11 hours. Because of this, drivers are forced to drive as much as they can during the 14 hours once the clock on the ELD starts. Ten-hour rest period: When the 14-hour limit has been reached, the ELD indicates to the driver that they must stop and “rest” for 10 consecutive hours. The ELD keeps track of any “infractions” – that is, going over the 14 hours as well as vehicle speed – and has reporting functions so inspectors can review the logs and fine drivers for infractions from days past. This means that those hauling horses will be required to stop their trip once the 14-hour threshold is reached and cannot resume travel until the 10-hour rest period has passed. If the threshold is breached, the ELD makes a record that can be reviewed by authorities and you can be fined. Have you noticed in the last several years all of the trucks that are parked along the side of the road? Have you noticed that on and off ramps and picnic and rest areas are sometimes filled up with trucks? Those typically are drivers that have reached their limit and have to immediately find a place to park their trucks to avoid costly violations. If you are required to install an ELD for your truck and horse trailer, this could easily happen to you too. Mandated breaks:

55


According to the Hours of Service outlined in the Federal Motor Carriers Safety Administration rules, rest breaks are mandatory in addition to the ten-hour rest period. Commercial drivers are required to take a 30-minute break within the 11 hour driving period and cannot go past 8 hours without taking a break. This mandatory break is calculated from when the vehicle starts moving and is tracked by the ELD. It does not take into account any other stops or breaks that may have occurred within the 8-hour time period. The break must be 30 consecutive minutes. A driver cannot substitute the 30-minute break with a 10-minute break and later a 20-minute break. There is no getting around this as the ELD records and stores the 30 consecutive minute break periods and will subject the driver to penalty for a rule violation upon inspection. Additionally, the 30-minute break is included in the 14-hour time limit.

What constitutes a Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) classification? • Are you writing off your truck or trailer as a business loss or expense on your tax returns? Tax write offs for your truck and trailer would make them fall under the commercial classification. • Are your truck and/or trailer being used for your business? If your truck or trailer is being used for your business, they fall under the commercial classification. If you are a trainer, your truck and trailer is used for business, there’s no doubt about it. If you are a non-pro or amateur competitor, your truck and trailer can be considered as used for business (see “furtherance of a commercial enterprise” explanation below). If you are a non-pro or amateur and breed horses and sell them, your truck and trailer are considered as used for business. • Do you only haul your own horses? If not and if you collect payment, (for example splitting fuel costs) to haul a friend or client’s horse to a show, to the trainer, to the vet, or to the breeder, your truck and trailer are considered commercial vehicles. • Have you won money competing with your horse or a client’s horse? Even though most often competing with horses is not profitable for a non-pro when calculating all the costs, the FMCSA could consider money won at a horse show or event, a profit. They can also consider hauling to an event with the intent or hopes of winning some money, as pursuing a profit. This definition of “profit” then classifies your truck and trailer as commercial. • Do you have sponsors? Do you have their stickers on your truck or trailer? Just about everyone knows a roper, rodeo or horse show contestant who has a “day job” (horseshoer as an example) that spends part of their time traveling to events to compete. In many cases, especially with rodeo events, (some associations have strict rules about sponsorships and others do not) they also have sponsors, whether its ropes, saddle pads, clothing or other equipment. Those sponsorships qualify as “furtherance of a commercial enterprise” and then puts them in the commercial category. • If your vehicle has a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of more than 10,000 pounds and is used for your business or with the intent to make a profit (see “furtherance of a commercial enterprise” below”), or involved in interstate commerce, like going to horse shows out of your home state, it then falls into the commercial vehicle classification by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). What “furtherance of a commercial enterprise” means: The FMCSA rule has some language that is far reaching with significant ramifications for horse enthusiasts. The category “furtherance of a commercial enterprise” is one of the qualifications considered when determining whether a driver and their truck and trailer fall under the commercial classification and apply to the scenarios

56 ALSA Showring Magazine Winter 2017

Alpaca & Llama Show Association


we have listed above. Here’s the information as outlined on the FMCSA website’s Q&A section: “ Question 21: Does the exemption in §390.3(f)(3) for the "occasional transportation of personal property by individuals not for compensation nor in the furtherance of a commercial enterprise" apply to persons who occasionally use CMVs to transport cars, boats, horses, etc., to races, tournaments, shows or similar events, even if prize money is offered at these events? Guidance: The exemption would apply to this kind of transportation, provided: (1) The underlying activities are not undertaken for profit, i.e., (a) prize money is declared as ordinary income for tax purposes, and (b) the cost of the underlying activities is not deducted as a business expense for tax purposes; and, where relevant; (2) corporate sponsorship is not involved. Drivers must confer with their State of licensure to determine the licensing provisions to which they are subject.” Do I need a Commercial Driver’s License? Your truck and trailer can be considered a commercial vehicle without the requirement that you obtain a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL). However, you will need to obtain a CDL if your vehicle fits the following categories: • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds. For example, if your dually has a GVWR of 10,000 pounds and your horse trailer has a GVWR more than 16,000 pounds, a commercial license is required. • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds. What is the GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating)? • The GVWR is the value specified by the manufacturer as the maximum loaded weight of a single vehicle or combination of vehicles, or the registered gross weight. What is the GCWR (Gross Combined Weight Rating)? • The GCWR is the value specified by the manufacturer as the GVWR of the power unit plus the GVWR of the towed unit or units, or the combined registered weight of the power unit plus the towed unit(s). The GCWR includes the passengers and cargo in the tow vehicle, plus the weight of the trailer and cargo in the trailer. What are the ongoing requirements for a Commercial Driver’s License? After passing the written and driving examination for a commercial license, including other steps such as a special medical examination, drug testing, and vehicle inspections, there are ongoing requirements for driving a vehicle that fall under the commercial classification. Each state has their own set of regulations in addition to the federal code so it is important to understand the laws in your state in regards to a commercial license. Do I need to have a Department of Transportation (DOT) number? Your vehicle may require a USDOT (Federal) number if your vehicle and travel meet the following conditions: • Your truck and trailer are considered commercial vehicles. This applies if you use your truck and trailer for business or for “furtherance of a commercial enterprise” (see above). • The GVWR is over 10,000 pounds • AND if you travel into other states Depending on the state in which you live, you may also be required to obtain a State DOT if your truck and trailer are considered commercial vehicles.

57


HOS or Hours of Service: Most drivers of commercial vehicles must comply with Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) Hours of Service. Hours of Service require that drivers can only be on the road for 11 hours of a 14 hour shift. However, with the ELD, and the fact that the machines start recording time from the moment wheels move past 5 miles per hour, drivers are not able to make allowances for traffic, loading and unloading, and taking a longer rest, or breaking up rest time. There are some exceptions to compliance with Hours of Service. They are listed below. ROD or Record of Duty: The Record of Duty (ROD) is a log book that every driver of a commercial vehicle must maintain and keep on file for 6 months. The following information must be logged into the ROD: • The status for each 24-hour period • Time must be recorded in duplicate • Time for Off Duty • Driving Time • Time spent sleeping • Time on duty but not driving • Each change in duty status that is recorded on the log must also include the name of the city/town/village and state. • Other supporting documentation must also be maintained to coincide with the ROD (log book) these include toll receipts, fuel receipts, and other documentation. If you have a commercial vehicle and your activities fall outside of the exemptions for farming and agriculture, you will be required to install an ELD If you have a Commercial Driver’s License and therefore are required to follow the Hours of Service and keep a Record of Duty, you will be required to install an ELD Are there situations where we are not required to follow the Hours of Service (HOS) or install an ELD? Agricultural Use: Drivers transporting ‘agricultural commodities,’ including livestock, are exempt from the Hours of Service regulations while operating within 150 air-miles of the source of such commodities. Vehicles and drivers are exempt if they are not: • Hauling farther away than 150 miles and not more than 8 days in a 30 day period. To put this in perspective, if you travel to a horse show, and are driving more than 150 miles to reach the show grounds, your trip there and back counts as driving days. If you stay in a hotel instead of on the showgrounds, any driving to the show grounds counts as days. In this light, it is pretty easy to consume the 8 days in a 30 day period if you attend more than one horse show during that time, or go to horse shows that last an extended period of time. If you are traveling to horse shows frequently, and drive a dually with a 4+ horse trailer, you are more than likely to fall into the classification where an ELD is required on your vehicle. • Drivers of vehicles manufactured before 2000 are not required to implement an ELD.

58 ALSA Showring Magazine Winter 2017

• Drivers will be required to use an ELD if they use a paper log more than 8 times in a rolling 30 day period. (Exceed 12 hours or more than 100 air miles from terminal). Once a driver has exceeded that threshold, they’ll have to drive an ELD equipped truck until their 30 day record drops to 8 or less paper log events. Short Haul: Short haul vehicles are exempt from the ELD Mandate. There are a few key components required to meet the FMCSA definition for short haul. You must: • Start and return to same location within 12 hours of duty time • Drive no more than 11 hours • Have ten consecutive hours off between shifts • Maintain your time clock function. Meaning, employees who are on the clock, punching in and out for work. • Not exceed a 100-mile radius from your starting location What can we do about this government overreach? Representatives from Protect The Harvest as well as Lucas Oil have been working hard to bring these issues to light. In addition to sharing information, we have made trips to Washington DC to meet with lawmakers. There are other groups that have also been sounding the alarm about the ELD Mandate. We need to do more and we need your help. If you have concerns about how the ELD Mandate and other regulations will impact your business or enjoying horses as a hobby, the time is now to act. Make sure to let others know about what is coming up. Share information and encourage others to do so as well. Get your local clubs and groups involved too. Most importantly, contact your Congressional Representative and let them know your concerns. They have heard from group representatives, now they need to hear from individuals, as many as possible. If we don’t act now, soon many of us including those that simply enjoy showing animals, or other hobbies that require a truck and trailer, will be required to install electronic logging devices on our vehicles. The American Quarter Horse Association is concerned about the impending Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) electronic logging device (ELD) mandate, which goes into effect on December 18, 2017. The rule limits the amount of time a commercial truck driver can drive and mandates a specific amount of off-duty/non-driving time, and requires the use of electronic logging devices to track the driving and nondriving times. Recently, livestock haulers were granted an additional 90 days by the Department Of Transportation to comply with the mandate. While there are some exemptions from the ELD mandate for farm and agricultural hauling, many of the rigs used for hauling horses and the activities horse owners participate in may be considered as falling outside of the exemptions.
