Betrayal:

Often Our Door To Destiny by Crystal Lyons Did you ever think about the fact that as soon as Mary accepted the word of the Lord, she was picked to bring the Messiah into earth, she had just signed up to be rejected, held in suspicion and have her quiet life from there on out, disrupted? As soon as her pregnancy began to show, she would lose her good reputation and now suffer shame and reproach. We love to read the “Christmas Story” as being a pretty picture, nice and tidy as those newly wrapped presents under the tree, but in actuality it wasn’t so. The birth of the Messiah of the world came intermingled with grievous results as it stirred up distrust in Joseph, and national unrest from Herod’s murderous anger. But this was only the beginning! Jesus Himself suffered the pain of rejection and betrayal many times over in His life. More than once His sermons incited such hatred that the crowd sought to kill Him right then and there. One particular message in John chapter six caused ALL His disciples (somewhere around 70) to quit Him! Only His 12 remained and one of them ultimately sold Him out for a chunk of change. And after only healing, restoring, raising the dead and miraculously feeding multitudes, when it came down to His DARKEST hour, those He had only shown love to cried out for His blood, desiring a murderer to be released in His place! So… you think you’ve suffered the ultimate betrayal? Allow me to throw a rock in your stew. No person who has EVER attained ANYTHING great has done so without being rejected and betrayed! Betrayal is something that any person called to carry greatness in this life must experience, and rise above its intended trap! No person of great calling EVER has eluded a life free of betrayal! Period. Don’t believe me? Scour the Bible stories and read about all the greats, and notice the many times these men and women were betrayed in some form or another. Joseph... sold into slavery by his own brothers. David… betrayed by Jezreel immediately after rescuing them. David’s own father did not even consider him important enough to call to the feast that Samuel specifically said ALL his sons were to attend. Saul who David loved like a father and faithfully served, tried to kill him multiple times. David’s own son, Absalom wanted him dead for the throne. Moses, Gideon, Stephen, betrayed by his own countrymen; oh and let’s not forget sweet Delilah who betrayed Samson. Where am I going with this? Simply that no one and I mean NO ONE, will have the character of soul and strength of back bone to walk out their

calling with integrity without passing the multiple tests of betrayals! EVERYBODY has a betrayer at least once in their life and probably more than once. If Jesus had to have a betrayer within His camp, do you think you and I are going to slip through life without one? Jesus even knew Judas was a betrayer when He picked him! That’s strange to me, unless you realize this very important revelation: Many times our destinies cannot be fulfilled completely without the added effect of a betrayal. So with that in mind, think back at your own betrayals. How has your life ultimately been altered for GOOD as a result? If not, check on your heart for the residue of unforgiveness leading to bitterness. Betrayal is a test that everyone must pass to become who you’re called to be! If you’ve felt the sting of betrayal, you’re in good company, walk it out with integrity and become a better you as a result!

Horseback Riding in BIG SOUTH FORK

Before people were coming to the Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area to pedal their bikes, float their boats or climb our rocks, they were coming here to ride their horses. And they still are. The Big South Fork NRRA is truly an equine smorgasbord. In fact, the BSF has the largest network of public horse trails east of the Mississippi River, which is quite impressive. There are 180 miles of horse trails here, almost all of them offering spectacular rides through scenic wonderlands. No wonder, then, that the Big South Fork has long been recognized as one of the Southeast’s top destinations for horseback riders. And more and more trail-riding enthusiasts are finding out about our quiet little corner of the world every year. If life is truly best viewed from the saddle, it’s even better when those views are of the unique terrain that makes up the Cumberland Plateau. Big South Fork Country is truly a horseback rider’s paradise. The network of trails range from short day trips to strenuous rides that will require several days to complete. The trails roam through beautiful river gorges with towering cliff lines overhead, past rock houses and natural arches, along open ridge lines with views of the surrounding countryside, and through shaded creek bottoms crowded with hemlock and other evergreens. There is almost no bad time to ride at the Big South Fork. The winter opens up VOLUME 6 | ISSUE 7 2020

the landscape, affording riders with views that are unparalleled just about anywhere east of the Rocky Mountains. The spring brings blooming redbuds and dogwoods and an abundance of wildflowers. Cumberland azalea, rhododendron and mountain laurel bloom in the summer. And, of course, the fall foliage beneath a clear, blue October sky in the Cumberlands is simply in a league of its own. The network of trails and the concessions and businesses that cater to horseback riders in and around the park make the Big South Fork NRRA one of the most horse-friendly parks in the nation . . . and make a trip here a must. TRAILS In all, the Big South Fork trail system consists of 180 miles of trail. The trails range from easy, short rides that can be completed in a matter of hours to long, strenuous rides that require several days to complete. A negative Scoggins test for swamp fever is required to bring a horse into the park. Because the network of trails in the Big South Fork NRRA is so extensive, the National Park Service recommends that all horseback riders purchase a National Geographic Trails Illustrated map, which is color-coded and includes all trails within the national park. The map is available from the Scott County Visitor Center on U.S. Hwy. 27 in Helenwood, or the Bandy Creek Visitor Center in the Big South Fork. Bandy Creek: The Bandy Creek Equestrian Trailhead is located west of the Bandy Creek Visitor Center off S.R. 297. A corral and water are available. The North White Oak Loop is an 18.5-mile ride that includes the Leatherwood Overlook.

HorseNRanchMag.com

The Jack’s Ridge Loop is an 8.2-mile ride. The Charit Creek Lodge is 7.1 miles from Bandy Creek by way of the Jack’s Ridge Loop Trail. The Duncan Hollow Trail is a 5.8-mile trail (one way) that provides access to Laurel Fork and Station Camp creeks. Cumberland Valley: The Cumberland Valley Trailhead is located on a gravel road that exits S.R. 297 just west of the Big South Fork’s west entrance. Cumberland Valley Loop is a 15.9-mile ride that includes the O&W Bridge and access to Zenith. Station Camp: The Station Camp Trailhead is located on Station Camp Road just east of the Station Camp Horse Camp. It provides access to the 15.0mile Pilot Wines Loop Trail, one of the most popular rides in the Big South Fork NRRA. CAMPING An equestrian campground is available at Station Camp, offering 24 sites. Each site is equipped with water and electricity, table, grill, tie-out for four horses, access to restrooms with hot showers, a dump station and immediate access to miles of horse trails. To make a reservation or for more information: (423) 569-3321. Bandy Creek Campground offers 96 trailer sites with water and electric hookups and 49 tent sites, along with two group camping areas. Bandy Creek Stables adjacent to the campground offers boarding for horses for riders camping at the campground. Stall rentals and long-term boarding are available. For more information: 423-286-7433. True West Campground, Stables & Mercantile is located on Leatherwood Road and offers 34 easy-access campsites, all with electric and water hookups. Nine of them have sewer hookups, as well. For more information: 931-752-8272 or www. truewestcampground.com. Primitive camping in the backcountry is permitted as well. A Backcountry Camping Permit is required. Riders will have little problem finding suitable camping areas along the trail. Charit Creek Lodge Overnight lodging with meals is available in the Big South Fork backcountry at the remote Charit Creek Lodge. The lodge is accessible only by foot or horseback. Stalls are available for horses.

CAMPING WITH YOUR HORSE How to make sure your camping trip goes smoothly... Traveling by horseback has become increasingly popular over the recent years. So if you can find the time in your busy schedules to escape into nature, make sure that you and your horse have everything you need for a safe, comfortable and relaxing trip. Here are some top tips for anyone looking to take their horse on a camping adventure. Know your horse’s limit Weight limit, that is! Carrying the live weight of a rider is incredibly different than carrying dead weight of your belongings. To ensure your horse isn’t carrying more than he should, it’s important to know the ratio of weight he can carry. Your saddle, yourself, and your gear should be limited to 250 pounds per horse, but if you’re looking at strictly dead weight, your horse should only be packed with 175 pounds at the most. Ensure your horse is comfortable Mentally! Is your horse an old pro when it comes to trails and packing, or is this your first attempt? 10

It’s important to know what your horse is comfortable with before throwing them into this extreme situation. Before embarking on a camping adventure away from home, consider doing a trial run at a trail near your barn.

you’re camping, but some items to include are: Sleeping bags Tent Pots, pans, and utensils Rain gear

This is also a good opportunity to determine if you’ve missed anything on your list to bring during the real thing. If your horse passes this test, it still wouldn’t hurt to go on your camping adventure with a seasoned horse who has camped before for your safety and the safety of your horse as well.

Get the balance right

Mobile phone in case of emergencies

Utilise a scale to accurately weigh and balance packs both at the start of your trip and during your trip as items from your pack are used and weight is shifted.

It’s important to be aware of the distribution of items on your horses back, and if you’re set on packing heaving, it’s worth looking into a secondary horse to divide up the weight.

We work to alleviate the suffering and senseless slaughter of domestic equine and to provide an environment for rehabilitation and carefully select adoptive homes At the age of 12 Victoria rescued her first horse. Since 1968 she has always taken in the horses that everyone has given up, trying to turn their life around by giving them one last chance. In 1991, orphaned nurse mare foals were brought to Victoria’s attention. Since then, Nurse Mare Foal Rescue is our main priority and has progressively grown to save THOUSANDS of foals. We offer a neonatal and intensive care facility for orphan nurse mare foals. We provide the foals with the necessary attention in order to secure a future in adoptive homes. Annually, we save 150-200 throw away foals from a certain death and provide them with the opportunity to a healthy life. One or two at a time, horses have come in and out of her life inspiring her to firmly believe that there is always a horse out there in need of refuge, and always a need for someone to feel responsible and intervene on that animal’s behalf. Establishing the Last Chance Corral in 1986 was the realization of her vision of creating a muchneeded facility to offer horses asylum. Today, the Last Chance Corral proudly offers horses hope, shelter, and opportunity regardless of their situation or problems. Be it psychological

or physiological we are committed to addressing the individual needs of each rescued animal. Our work begins with developing an individual diet, treatment regiments, and a training program for each horse according to its needs. When a horse has been sufficiently rehabilitated we go about the work of finding appropriate adoptive homes that suit the horse’s needs and abilities. 740.594.4336 lastchancecorral.org

Changing with the Season:

Fall Horse Health Care Checklist With the arrival of autumn, you’ll want to take stock of your horse’s health and environment and make some adjustments. Here’s your fall checklist. PARASITE CONTROL Once the intense heat of late summer subsides, the number of infective parasite larvae on pastures rises sharply. In most areas, counts are highest in the autumn months. If pasture quality is falling off, your horse may also be munching on grass in areas he would normally avoid, like near manure piles. Speak to your vet about whether you should be making any adjustments to your deworming schedule to protect your horse better during this time. Use of a daily dewormer during September and October can be a good idea, as long as the parasites in your area aren’t resistant to it. CHANGING PASTURE CONDITIONS As growing conditions change in the fall, contact with rising parasite numbers isn’t the only danger. As grass supplies dwindle, horses will often sample greenery they would normally leave alone. This can lead to plant poisonings. Begin to offer supplemental hay well in advance of the pasture going bare. ADJUSTING FEED/EXERCISE RATIOS Is the riding season winding down for you and your horse? Whether you trail ride for pleasure or actively compete, if the amount of riding you do is decreasing, it’s time to make some changes to your horse’s management too. One of the most important is to cut back on calories. If you continue to feed the same way, your horse will get overweight. ROUTINE PHYSICAL MAINTENANCE If you have skipped any routine health maintenance chores during the busy summer season, like teeth floating or sheath cleaning, be sure to catch up on them now. This is also a good time to consider giving a shod horse a break 12

from shoes. Going barefoot improves the health of the feet, and if you pull the shoes now, you will give the hooves time to toughen up before ground conditions get too hard. PREVENTING ACORN OVER-INDULGENCE Although many horses relish acorns, and may eat them with impunity for years, for reasons that are poorly understood, acorns can sometimes cause problems. It may be that affected horses simply eat more than the others, or there may be some chemical changes in the nuts related to the weather that season. In any event, it’s wise not to let your horse gorge himself on acorns. Symptoms of toxicity may include loss of appetite, abdominal pain/colic, diarrhea or laminitis. FALL LAMINITIS Insulin-resistant horses, or older horses that may have early Cushing’s disease, are at high risk for laminitis in the fall. Recent research has found that there is a seasonal elevation of the hormone ACTH in all horses during the fall. This begins mid- to late August and continues into November. For normal horses, it’s not a problem, but with insulin-resistant horses, or those with early Cushing’s, the rise in ACTH can be substantially greater and the increases in cortisol this produces puts them at high risk for laminitis. In fact, for many older horses a bout of fall laminitis is often what leads to the initial diagnosis of Cushing’s disease. WEANING PREPARATION It might be getting close to time to wean your foal. Weaning age and the age your baby should receive his first vaccinations, or last foal booster, are often the same. Weaning is very stressful for a foal, so you want to make sure you have vaccinations out of the way at least two weeks before weaning to make sure that stress doesn’t interfere with a good response to the vaccines.

VOLUME 6 | ISSUE 7 2020

PREGNANT MARES No special care is needed for the pregnant mare at this stage of pregnancy, but as she approaches the last half to one-third of gestation, her nutritional needs change dramatically. Calorie requirements go up a bit, but mineral requirements rise even more. This means that you can’t meet the mineral needs without risking getting the mare overweight unless you change how you are feeding and supplementing. Your vet or a nutrition professional are the best sources for advice on how to bring your mare’s diet up to requirements. Many developmental bone and joint problems get their start long before the foal is born. MISCELLANEOUS CHORES Now is the time to inspect your property and buildings with winter conditions in mind. Take care of repairs you might have let go when summer riding was in full swing. Fix anything that looks like it could become a problem in the next few months. Better to do it now than be faced with a problem you can’t avoid any longer in freezing weather. Also think back to problems you may have encountered last winter. You may have had a lot of good ideas on how to improve things back then, but put them off when the weather got nicer. Do you need a plow for that tractor? Shovels? Water heaters? Are your blankets in good repair? Equisearch.com

The Swivel - I Was Wrong!

Yes, it’s true I make mistakes, all the time actually. As Bram Stoker once said “We learn from failure, not from success.” I’ve learned a lot over the years. One of the latest “Opportunities” that I feel the need to share involves a swivel and highline. To give a little context a highline is a way to safely contain our critters when we’re camping. I’m a big fan of highline systems for keeping our four legged mischievous toddlers out of trouble. They’re simple in construction and easy to use. One of the great bonuses of a highline is that your horse, or mule, can walk freely under the highline. That entails going in circles. And therein lies the problem. The connection point between critter and highline involves some sort of anchor point for our pony’s leads to attach to. There are a myriad of gadgets for this application. Patent pending thingamajigs, rings, and all of sorts of superfluous junk that does one thing and one thing only. My feeling is that uni-taskers are the antithesis of camping and have no place in my gear bag. My highline connection point for years has simply been a length of climbing cord fashioned into a prusik that freely twists and untwists. With the prusik I can slide the anchor without having to loosen the highline, and I can tie one with shoelaces if needs be. For decades I’ve said that if my animals can turn left while on a highline that they can also go right. And by golly that held true for many years, more camping trips than I can remember and, well you get the idea. My no swivel system worked great. Until it didn’t. My main riding mule, Ruger, had several very long, very uncomfortable nights during a pack trip into the Eagle Caps Wilderness last year. Every night of the trip he twisted his lead into knots. Each morning I would find Ruger head lifted high, standing patiently, waiting for me to untie his halter and release him from his prison. I will add that on the same trip my go-to pack mule, Ellie, never had an issue and would 16

watch Ruger’s plight with equine amusement. I think Ellie double-dog-dared Ruger to repeatedly turn in the same direction – Mules do have a sense of humor. It could have been much worse and I regret that I ever let such a thing happen. He’d never had an issue before. I guess Ruger just decided that turning left was tedious after walking in clockwise circles. I failed Ruger in acknowledging that an issue could occur but neglecting to proactively remedy that potential situation. Sorry Ruger. Enter the swivel. No, not the cheap barrel swivels found in most uni-taskers. I wanted something stronger and more reliable. I went swivel searching to find something that would be strong, reliable, small, and lightweight. The worlds of rock climbing and commercial arborists were most helpful. I found that there are two main types of swivels; barrel and ball bearing. • Barrel swivels have a middle barrel that has been loosely wrapped, or swaged, with another piece of metal that rotates around the barrel. The best part of these is the price. They’re cheap to make and to buy. The bad thing is that the metal-on-metal grinding creates friction that over time will result in problems, including premature wear and breakage. • Ball bearing swivels on the other hand contain polished stainless-steel ball bearings positioned between the spindle and body. This enables the swivel to rotate freely, negating any twist, even under heavy load. The perceived disadvantage of ball-bearing swivels is their price. However, in certain situations — such as when our ponies are involved — you can’t afford not to use them. The comfort of Ruger and the girls is important to me so I went with climbing grade ball bearing swivels. These HorseNRanchMag.com

brightly colored beauties weigh little, spin like butter, and are significantly stronger (with a rating of 35kN, nearly 8,000 pounds) than other well marketed inline swivels. After adding a ball bearing swivel to each prusik loop that I anchor the bubbas to on the highline I haven’t had any issues with anyone getting twisted up. This makes for a better night’s rest of me and my mules. And of course, better nights make for better trips.

PALM PARTNERSHIP TRAINING™ Building a Partnership with Your Horse Daily Wellness Check For Your Horse By Lynn Palm Keep your Western Dressage horse in top health by paying close daily attention. “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” That old saying especially applies to your horse’s health and safety. You can head off many potential problems—or catch them early—by doing a daily wellness check. When you do a daily check, you can often catch the “little things” before they turn into serious, expensive issues. The best time to do a daily check is when you feed your horse or clean his stall. If you someone else is feeding your horse, such as a barn manager, then that person needs to do the check for you. Another good time to do a check is before you turn him out, when you groom him, saddle to ride or take him out for a graze on the longe line. DAILY HORSE CHECK  You’ll want to check your horse’s entire body during your daily check. Below I’ve commented on specific areas of the horse’s body that are easy to “miss” if you don’t make a specific effort to check carefully. If you check your horse in the same manner every time, you’ll always be sure to cover evaluating the entire horse. I suggest doing the check from “front to back and top to bottom.”  If your horse has a longer hair coat you’ll need to take your hands and feel through the hair down to the skin in all areas of longer hair growth to detect any swellings, lumps, scrapes, etc. while you’re doing your check. HEAD If your horse has a face scrape that you’ve treated for a couple of days that you find he’s rubbing the scrape and opening the wound more, your horse may have a fungal infection that’s causing him to rub. Consult your veterinarian at this point. He may direct you to wash the scrape with an antifungal shampoo on a daily basis before you apply a topical treatment to the scrape.  UNDER JAW Take your hand and palpate under the horse’s jaw for any heat, lumps, swellings, cuts, etc.  POLL During your grooming session, take your hand and feel for any bumps, swellings, or cuts in the poll area. Ask your horse to lower his head so you can check his poll. I know it’s easy when you have a tall horse that isn’t fond of putting his head down to skip checking the poll during your daily grooming. If that’s a challenge you have with your horse, you’ll

absolutely want to work with him so that he lowers his head at your request. BOTTOM “V” OF EAR, INSIDE EAR, AND EAR’S BACK Again, take your hand and gently feel the bottom “v” of the ear and inside the ear for any cuts, bumps, swellings, etc. NECK CREST Feel along the entire neck where the mane grows out from the neck. Part the mane so you can feel all the way down to the base of the neck for any cuts, lumps, swelling, scabs, etc. TAIL BONE Stand to the side of your horse and close to your horse at either side of the hip. Using your peripheral vision watch your horses ears as you gently take your hand and palpate the entire tail bone. Check for any swelling, cuts, scabs, bumps, etc. “Listen” to your horse for him to “tell” you with his tail, ears, or body movement that something is “not right” as you palpate his tail bone. STOMACH - MIDLINE You’ll need to again “listen” to your horse as you take your hand and palpate the horse’s “middle” or stomach area checking for any lumps, bumps, crusts, cuts, etc. A flashlight is helpful for checking this area too if you’re in a dimly lit location. Horses on pasture may get small cuts or skin scrapes from burrs or thistles getting stuck to the skin in this area. If the cuts and scrapes are not attended to (whatever the original cause) there’s a chance the skin can get infected and need treatment. SHEATH OR UDDER AREA Check for swellings, cuts, etc. On mares you’ll want to periodically check for a gummy substance called “smegma” that builds up between the mare’s teats. (Geldings and stallions accumulate smegma in their sheath area and will need to be checked as well.) Be VERY careful when examining mares in this area and if you are uncomfortable checking your mare, get qualified help. Mares, geldings, and stallions will often rub their tails to “tell” you that the smegma build up is irritating them. HOCK Check for puffiness/sponginess/heat in front and back of the hock. TENDONS AND LIGAMENTS ALONG CANNON BONES Use your hands to palpate the horse’s ligaments and tendons from the knee down on the front legs and the hock down on the hind legs. Check for any heat, swelling, cuts, etc. Know what is “normal” for your horse.

CORONET BAND Crouch down and to the side of your horse as you take your hand and feel around the entire coronet band. If you have a horse that has “feathers” such as a Clydesdale or excess hair around the coronet band you’ll need to be especially careful to feel the actual skin surface to note any bumps, cuts, scrapes, swellings, etc. Be sure to feel in the “seam” area when the coronet band meets the hoof as often times cuts can go undetected in that area. HEEL BULBS Look and feel for any redness, swelling, bleeding, crustiness, etc. in the heel bulb area. A condition called “scratches” can develop in this area so you’ll want to especially make sure to check the heel bulbs. HOOVES Checking your horse’s hooves every day is important for his safety and long term health. If your horse has shoes, check for any loose or sprung clinches. When you look at the bottom of the horse’s hoof, check to make sure the shoe fits securely to the hoof. If it’s loose, call your farrier ASAP. He may need to remove the shoe, and tack it back on securely to the hoof. Pick each hoof carefully to remove any mud, pebbles, and debris. If your horse is wearing pads, remove any packed dirt, mud, etc. that may be stuck to the pads. Check for any offensive smells they may come from your horse’s hooves. If you encounter a strong odor you may need to treat the hooves for thrush.  By doing a daily check of your horse’s body you’ll be able to address many situations needing first aid. To properly care for cuts, scrapes, swellings, etc. as a result of your daily check or accidents that may happen at your barn (both horse and human) you’ll want

VOLUME 6 | ISSUE 7 2020

to have a fully stocked equine and human first aid kit (I use and recommend EquiMedic products) at your barn at all times. It’s one of the best insurance policies you can buy for your horse and you! You’ll have confidence and peace of mind in knowing that you’ll be able to address minor first aid challenges and be able to give your horse help before the vet arrives or before your horse is trailered to the vet.   If you like more information related to doing a daily check of your horse, you’ll enjoy our DVD, “Grooming to Gain Your Horse’s Trust & Love.” Find this, along with many other helpful training materials, at www.lynnpalm.com, or by calling 800-503-2824.
