WAKE UP CALLS by Crystal Lyons

I travel so much that often when I’m awakened, I’m at first totally in a fog as to where I am. I have to lay there for a minute and rehearse my steps prior to going to sleep, so I can put the pieces in correct place before I have an accurate take on where I am and why. I remember one time pulling into a place late at night with my truck and trailer and collapsing into deep sleep, only to suddenly be awakened by a literal roar of sound accompanied with vibration. I jumped out of bed and out the door yelling… yes, yelling… “don’t you DARE steal MY MOTORCYCLE!!” Only THEN, to realize no one was there. I was hearing the sound of the air compressor going off underneath the gooseneck, re-filling the air bags on my trailer and I was dreaming that someone had started my motorcycle and was about to ride it off. Problem expounded by the fact that I don’t even OWN a motorcycle. So, there I am, standing barefoot in an empty gravel parking lot, in my PJ’s, somewhere in Oklahoma… yelling perfect nonsense at 3 AM! When I finally woke myself up by my own voice yelling total delusional thoughts, it was sort of humbling to recognize the incredible FOG my irrational mind had me acting on! I stumbled back into bed (after turning OFF the air compressor), chuckling to myself over the humor of it all and TOTALLY THANKFUL no one was around to bear witness to it. Lately, because of the extreme generosity of some friends, I have been given access to 20 acres I can pull into and turn Strider loose. They have provided me with a place to rest between travels. I have pulled in off the road exhausted and totally oblivious to the sinister plot that silently awaits in Strider’s mind to sabotage my sleep. Strider has LOVED being my morning alarm clock… the turd. His normal feeding time is around 8 AM but HERE he has access to my trailer so every morning at 6 AM, he’s putting into action his plan to get me up so he can eat two hours earlier. He turns over the lawn chairs, scatters anything I left out and stomps the ramp with his hooves, rocking the trailer! If that doesn’t get me out the door fast enough, he takes his nose and bumps the front door. When I’m parked there, I have a literal 1500# 6 AM alarm clock you can set your watch to. I must admit I’ve come to be thankful for my 6 AM wake up because it’s gotten me outside in the cool hours of the morning. Using this time to re-calibrate my mind by spending quality time with my Heavenly

Father has been greatly profitable. I’m realizing (again) that it clears away the mental fog we can unknowingly acquire through the daily contacts with this world, built on thinking that’s totally against Kingdom principles. Fear based thoughts that infiltrate our minds and negatively affect our emotions are quickly dispelled in the Presence of the Father. Some folks in America could use a wakeup call like that. There are those who are sleep walking, and oblivious to the fact that they are yelling absolute ignorance over things that only exist in their delusional thought processes! It seems to have become a fad these days to demand our “rights” while totally ignoring any responsibilities! Emotions often dictate actions instead of right thinking. America could use an awakening of its own. Possibly a 1500# one.

PEMF is now available for Horses… at the Farriers’ National Research Center & Horseshoeing School in Villanow, Georgia So what is P E M F ?? google it and you will come up with hundreds of links, photos and videos. It has become very popular within the Horse Industry.

The Magna Wave company is the unit we use. We have included it in the Equine Flexion Therapy courses with Instructor Dan Marcum as shown here on May 7, 2019. Dan is a Certified PEMF Expert with the Manga Wave company.

It is used on Humans, small and large animals, used by doctors, chiropractors, veterinarians and now by Farriers

Pulsating Electro Magnetic Field We were introduced to Magnetic Therapy back in 2000 and demonstrated it’s use at clinics and conventions for farrier and owners alike for many years. In the last ten years, the Magna Wave Equine Wellness Technology Company has been designing and representing their NEW system of PULSE fields that you can actually observe and feel as the magnetic field hovers over the body. Here are their findings: • Anything that disrupts our body’s own natural magnetic fields impairs cell metabolism which contributes to cell dysfunction. • The Magnetic Field helps to speed up cell metabolism by improving oxygenation of the blood stream. • PEMF stimulates cell metabolism causing a chain of responses in the body leading to improved health. • PEMF works to improve circulation and cell metabolism. PEMF helps horses by: General Overall Relaxation and Increased Range of Motion allowing the horse to stretch out their hind quarters, necks, and front limbs. Easier for the owner in conditioning the horse for and after events, just simple riding and we use it to help the horse prepare for the farrier’s services. There is an apparent relaxing of the vascular system within minutes of completing the session (10-20 minutes) which could serve to drop or improve blood pressure. Promotes: • Calm and Relaxed attitude while relaxing muscles • Increases Circulation • Improves Energy • Arthritis Relief and Inflammation Reduction • Stimulates Hoof Growth and can bring a hoof abscess to the surface. • Boosting cellular metabolism by  • Regenerating blood cells

PYRANTELCARE™ DAILY DEWORMER Gives Horse Owners Greater Peace of Mind Horse owners searching for a safe way to protect against internal equine parasites will be happy to know Farnam has just released PyrantelCare™ Daily Dewormer 2.11% (pyrantel tartrate). Instead of just using a “purge” paste dewormer a few times a year, a daily dewormer can offer year-round protection. Purge dewormers interrupt the infection cycle of the parasites, but don’t prevent larval migration, which is when most internal damage takes place. A daily dewormer prevents parasite infestations from occurring in the first place. Daily feeding of PyrantelCare™ Daily Dewormer 2.11% provides continuous protection against the most common species and stages of equine parasites, including large and small strongyles, ascarids and pinworms. The daily dewormer works in the horse’s digestive tract by paralyzing emerging parasite larvae that the horse has picked up in his environment. Because the parasites are killed before they can migrate through the horse’s digestive system, they aren’t able to inflict serious damage. The product has a wide margin of safety and is not metabolized by the horse’s body. “With a daily dewormer, you’re putting up a barrier between your horse and parasites. It’s another tool in the toolbox and is part of an integrated approach to parasite control,” says Tom Kennedy, Ph.D., a veterinary parasitologist based in Westport, Wisconsin. Continuous use of PyrantelCare™ dewormer 2.11% reduces the number of female parasites laying eggs, meaning your horse will have less exposure to parasites in his environment. The palatable, easy-to-feed medicated pellets can be used as either a top-dress or mixed in the horse’s daily grain ration. Simply follow label directions to feed the correct amount according to your horse’s weight. The product can safely be used in horses of all ages, including breeding stock. Foals may be administered PyrantelCare™ dewormer 2.11% as soon as they have consistent grain intake, which generally occurs between two to three months of age. PyrantelCare™ dewormer 2.11% may be used in mares at any stage of pregnancy or lactation. Stallion fertility is not affected by the use of PyrantelCare™ dewormer 2.11%. PyrantelCare™ replaces Farnam’s former daily dewormer Equi Aid CW® dewormer, so customers who used that product in the past will be glad to learn about the release of PyrantelCare™ dewormer 2.11%. Horse owners can take advantage of a coupon to be used on their next purchase of PyrantelCare™ Daily Dewormer 2.11% (pyrantel tartrate) by visiting http://news.farnam.com/pyrantelcare8 Founded in 1946, Farnam Companies, Inc., has grown to become one of the most widely recognized names in the animal health products industry and has become one of the largest marketers of equine products in the country. No one knows horses better than Farnam. That’s why no one offers a more complete selection of horse care products. Farnam® Horse Products serves both the pleasure horse and the performance horse markets with products for fly control, deworming, hoof and leg care, grooming, wound treatment and leather care, plus nutritional supplements.

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

Let’s Stay Together

Trailer Safety Chains and the Breakaway Cable breakaway system BEFORE the safety chains are fully engaged. This keeps the coupler from becoming completely separated from the tow vehicle and allows the trailer brakes to begin the process of slowing down the tow vehicle in a controlled manner.

Horse trailers are way nifty with all of the gadgets we can get for them. However, two of the most important trailer items are far from sexy, but can have far reaching consequences if they fail; your Trailer Safety Chains and Breakaway system. The ability to stop your trailer in a controlled manner and in a reasonable distance is one of the most critical aspects of safe towing. And one of the most often overlooked. The primary system stopping your trailer is of course the receiver/ hitch / couple system. In the unfortunate, but rare, event that this primary system fails you have two remaining systems to fall back on. your Trailer Breakaway System and Safety Chains. Have you checked yours? Are they operating correctly? What do they do?

The Breakaway System –The breakaway system is your first line of defense is the event of a very bad situation. This is vitally important safety device works with your trailer brakes to protect you and the people around you in the event that your trailer 16

If the breakaway cable is too long: the emergency breakaway cable isn’t actuated until the safety chains give way. By then the trailer is clear of the tow vehicle and the front of the trailer will hit the pavement causing an intense deceleration that could in turn cause the trailer to flip, roll, or veer into oncoming traffic. All of which are extremely bad outcomes.

becomes separated from your vehicle. A separation event is unpredictable and highly dangerous. The breakaway system is designed to minimize damage and injury. The system is made up of a battery on your trailer and a switch connected to a cable. One end of the cable attaches to your trailer, while the other end attaches to your vehicle. If the primary connection (receiver/ hitch/coupler) between your vehicle and trailer fails, the trailer will pull the cable as it breaks free. The switch will actuate the battery and firmly apply the trailer brakes to slow the trailer. – [NOTE: safety chains are NOT part of the primary connection between truck and trailer. They are a last resort.]

The easiest way to determine the correct length of the breakaway cable is to hook the chains to the tow vehicle, gently pull forward until the chains just become tight, then measure from the breakaway device to the point where you connect the cable. Then make, or buy, a cable slightly shorter (3-4 inches) than that.   Steps to ensure your Breakaway System is working correctly.

Always securely connect the breakaway cable to your vehicle. You can test the breakaway system by pulling the cable. Your trailer brakes should immediately activate and lock up the tires. To disengage, simply replace the key in the switch. When the breakaway system should engage is a good question and opinions vary. I believe that the cable should activate the

1. Hook up the truck and trailer on level ground 2. Ensure the safety chains are attached to the proper 3. Ensure the breakaway cable is attached to a separate mount / location. One that is NOT used for the safety chains 4. Lift the trailer jacks until the trailer clears the ball Say you saw it in HORSE N RANCH TM

To make sure you are using your safety chains properly, follow these instructions: • For bumper pull trailers cross the safety chains underneath the hitch and coupler with enough slack to permit turning and to hold the tongue up if the trailer comes loose. • Fasten the safety chains to the tow vehicle.

5. Pull forward gently until the safety chains tighten. Stop as they become taught. 6. If the emergency breakaway cable did not pull from the breakaway switch before the chains tighten you’ll need to shorten the cable until it does. 7. After the breakaway cable is set to the correct length. Reconnect the truck and trailer and drive in a safe area. Make tight turns and back the trailer to ensure the cable is not too short and pulling out or applying the brake inadvertently. - If it does you may need to move the breakaway mount until it no longer interferes. NOTE: Keeping the breakaway device and the cable mounting point centered near the hitch eliminates many of the pulling issues in turns and helps prevent inadvertent activations.   Safety Chains - These are the chains that are connect the trailer to the tow vehicle. They allow you to safely guide your trailer and maintain control as make your way to a safe stopping point in the event major hitch failure of the ball or coupler. Two safety chains are required and must be attached to their own chain retainers. VOLUME 5 | ISSUE 6 2019

• Always make sure the safety chains are secured to the tow vehicle before you move your trailer and regularly recheck them. • Regularly inspect the chains and hooks for wear or damage, and replace any worn or damaged chains and hooks before towing again.  Just as there are specific things you should do with safety chains, there are also some things that you shouldn’t do.  • Don’t fasten the chains to any part of the hitch unless the hitch has holes specifically for that purpose.  • Never fasten the breakaway cable to the safety chains.  • Never let your safety chains drag the ground.  Safety chains are a very important detail that can lead to big problems if you aren’t using them correctly. Pull out the owner’s manual for your trailer or contact the manufacturer if you have questions.

PLEASE CONSIDER THIS. Improper rigging of the breakaway system and safety chains can not only result in loss of control of both your trailer and tow vehicle, but can also be deadly for those it might crash into and the equine passengers aboard. Talking about trailer breakaways and safety chains in this manner may make it seem like a catastrophic event is going to happen to tomorrow.  That’s most likely not going to occur.  Most people never have an issue.  However, it can happen, so don’t disregard these safety issues.  Take the time to fit properly and to check thoroughly.  And the odds are good you’ll be just fine.

PALM PARTNERSHIP TRAINING™ Building a Partnership with Your Horse

Use Your Aids to Whisper, Not Shout By Lynn Palm

The rider’s aids are her tools to communicate with her horse. The “natural” aids, which she uses to respond to her horse, are her seat, legs, and hands. The rider’s seat, and especially her legs, controls two-thirds of the horse’s body from the wither back. Her hands control the forward one-third of the horse’s body including the shoulders, neck, and head. Let’s look at each of these important aids. The Seat: The rider’s seat works as an aid to help the horse go forward or slow down. The seat works by applying weight into the saddle on the horse’s back according to what response the rider wants. She uses more weight in her seat for more response, less weight for a lighter response. The weight that the rider applies through her seat, on the saddle has two functions. It indicates to the horse her desire to go forward or slow down and helps him to accomplish these actions. I’ll explain more about the function of the seat in upcoming editions of this newsletter series. The Legs: The legs work as an aid because the horse moves away from pressure. In moving away from the rider’s leg pressure, a horse can go forward, sideways, or back. The legs as an aid are used slightly behind the girth. This is the proper position for the rider’s leg. When the rider applies her legs to communicate with her horse, it should always be first done with the lightest amount of pressure with a light squeeze slightly behind the girth. What should the rider do if her horse does not respond to her leg aids? Here are some tips for “tuning up” leg aid communication. The Hands: The rider’s hands control the reins. To give rein aids properly the hands must be in the correct position at all times which is in front of the saddle. The rider uses the reins for two purposes: speed control and turning. The rider’s hands on the reins can be used to slow the horse down as well as responding with the hands as he moves forward at the rider’s command. Speed control can be done through the action of the rider’s fingers. With her hands holding the reins, the rider closes her fingers around the reins to ask her horse to slow. When she wants her horse to go forward, she opens her fingers slightly while still holding onto the reins to allow her horse the freedom to move forward. The second use of the hands on the reins is to turn the horse. I like to use what is called an “open rein” to direct the horse to turn. With hands evenly holding the reins in front of the saddle, to turn my horse to the left I will move my left hand and left rein sideways slightly away from the horse’s neck. I do this through the action of my elbow, not my wrist and NEVER BY PULLING BACK on the rein. Pulling back restricts that horse’s forward motion. We do not want to this because a turn is not possible without forward motion! When turning, the inside rein (“inside” meaning the rein on the side toward where you will be turning) is the POSITIONING REIN. Its job is to position or direct the horse in the direction you want to travel. The outside rein is the TURNING REIN. The outside rein is held against the horse’s neck without the rider’s hand crossing over the horse’s neck The horse moves away from the

action or pressure of the outside rein lying against his neck and turns. Going back to my example if I were turning left, I would lay the right rein against the horse’s neck asking him to move away from the rein pressure and turn to the left while I would use my left rein to lightly position him for the turn. If more turning action is needed, the rider should slightly raise the outside hand to move the turning rein further up the neck. If less turning action is desired or a lighter response is sought, she should keep the outside rein closer to the base of the horse’s shoulder. Next article we will put these aids together to learn more about their affect on communicating with our horse and how to improve our conversations! Your Next Step… One issue many riders have is their horses do not respond to their leg aids. Here is a progression of steps the rider can use to “turn up the volume” with her leg aids and communicate without shouting! If the rider does not get a reaction when a leg aid is lightly applied behind the girth, the first step is for her to move her leg slightly further back on his barrel and reapply the leg aid. To do this properly, the rider should move her leg back from the hip and only slightly bend her knee to bring her lower leg further back. Her heel stays down. The rider applying a leg aid further back from the girth always will give more indication to the horse to move his body. In taking this next step, avoid the common error of bending the knee to lift the lower leg higher on the horse’s barrel. This brings the heel up high on the horse’s side. This is not an effective leg aid. If the horse still doesn’t respond, keeping her heel down the rider should use a “vibrating” leg pressure. Keeping her heel down, she should apply a rapid on-and-off pressure with the side of her lower leg behind the girth. A vibrating leg pressure is not the same as poking the horse with the heels! Poking and kicking will only irritate the horse and eventually make him duller to the leg aids. A vibrating pressure should liven up him up without a lot of excess squeezing. The horse still doesn’t respond? Use an abrupt, quick action with the leg behind the girth. Again it is done with the lower leg flat against his barrel (not delivered with the heel) giving a quick, more assertive bump behind the girth to get a reaction from the horse. When he responds go back to giving him the lightest of aids by asking him with a light squeeze with the leg. Remember a golden rule of aids communication… no matter what level of communication you must use to get a response from your horse, always come back to the lightest aid possible. The aids are our way of communicating with our horses. Remember the old commercial that had the tag line; “when you want someone to listen, whisper”? We want to speak softly and lightly to our equine partners to keep their attention. Only when we don’t get a response, might it be necessary to use more volume to get their attention. Once we do, we go back to soft, light communication to make sure they don’t tune us out. Make it your goal to use your aids to whisper, not shout, to your equine partner! Until then, follow your dreams…
