LESSONS FROM RODEO by Crystal Lyons

S

ome of the hardest and BEST lessons I’ve learned in life were learned from rodeoing. Back in the late 80’s when Ray and I were first married, all we wanted to do was rodeo. Ray was riding bulls in the Great Lakes Circuit. Both of us were working jobs around Branson, Missouri, but there just wasn’t enough left over to be able to afford a weekend’s worth of rodeos in the PRCA. Obviously having to enter well ahead of time, the crunch was on. You GO because if you don’t, you’re going to lose your money plus be fined on top of that! So when it came time to go and we owed rent or electric (or both) and the money wasn’t there to rodeo AND pay our bills, we obviously figured if we went, we’d win money and all would work out! Absolutely every time we did that, it was as if Ray couldn’t ride a jump kicker! We’d come home worse off than when we left and getting further and further behind. It was SO depressing. Being believers, we were faithful to tithe, and we simply couldn’t figure out WHY God wasn’t blessing us! So I went before the Lord to find out where we were missing it. He was faithful to show us. In Luke chapter 16 starting around verse 10, Jesus gave the answer. He states “He that is faithful in that which is least, is faithful also in much” but verse 12 is where He drove home the issue! “And if you have not been faithful in that which is another man’s, who shall give you that which is your own?” We were being faithful with God’s money, but NOT faithful with what we owed the landlord and the utility companies. We were rodeoing on money we owed other people and expecting God to bless our efforts. God flat out states that He cannot and WILL NOT. We expect God to be integritable with us while we’re not being integritable with others, and He won’t play that game. So we didn’t enter any rodeos until we got square with all our bills, and had the money to enter a rodeo WHEN we called in to enter. It took about six months to get there and it was like pulling teeth!! Everyone was rodeoing while we were staying home and working… yuk. During that time Ray didn’t even get on practice bulls because that cost money. Finally when the 4th of July rolled around we had the money to enter three rodeos in Wisconsin. Now mind you, Ray hadn’t been on the back of a bull for MONTHS. Despite that, he won two of the three rodeos that weekend! God’s blessing was on it and

we came home feeling so RICH! I wasn’t competing anymore, but was still getting on bulls in the practice pen simply because I missed it. I got called to ride at the WPRA finals that year because of a lack of girl rough stock riders. They paid my entry fees and my hotel and whatever money I won was mine. Well… dang… I didn’t need to pray about that! But when it was time to go, we didn’t have enough money to pay rent AND make the trip. I went to our landlord and read to her Luke 16 and explained my situation. She gave me her blessing to use the rent to go on and pay her as I could later. That weekend I had a blast and made a few hundred dollars in the process. It PAYS to be honorable with money we owe other people. God puts a high regard on integrity.

Raising Goats

By Cheryl K. Smith

GOATS MAKE GREAT PETS! And as more and more people look for ways to live sustainably and grow their own food, goats are a wonderful option for raising meat and milk, and you can harvest their fleece, as well. Whether you’re raising goats for food or as the smart, lovable pets they can be, you need to know a few things about caring for your herd. PREPARING YOUR PROPERTY FOR RAISING GOATS Bringing home goats requires some forethought on your part so that you can keep your goats safe and healthy and protect them from predators. Here’s a glimpse of the projects you need to undertake before you get your goats: Build housing or get current housing ready. Goats need some kind of shelter from the elements and a safe place to bunk down. In addition, you might want a dedicated area for milking or kidding, if you decide to breed your goats. Build a fence or check your fencing for security. Goats are smart and curious, and they will head out into the neighborhood if given the chance. Furthermore, wolves, wild dogs, and other predators would love to be able to get at your goats, and so you need to do your best to keep them out. Buy feed and feeding equipment. Goats need hay, grain, minerals, and other supplemental feed, depending on the kind of goats you get, their stage of life, and the way you intend to use them. And of course, your goats need clean, fresh water every day. At a minimum, you need • Feed storage containers • Food bowls • Hay manger • Mineral feeder • Water buckets 10

VOLUME 7 | ISSUE 1 2021

Put together a first aid kit. Accidents and illnesses are inevitable, and so you need to be ready for common problems you’re likely to face as you raise goats, from stopping the bleeding from a hoof-trimming injury to giving injections to combat infections or illnesses. Goat-proof your yard or pasture. Goats are grazers, which means that they move from plant to plant and tree to tree, eating all the way. Some of the common plants that homeowners use for landscaping can poison goats, and so you need to clear them out. You may also want to protect the trees that you can’t or don’t want to remove but adding some protection to their trunks. RECOGNIZING THE SIGNS OF A SICK GOAT Your goats will let you know when something’s wrong, but you need to recognize the signs. You need to investigate further or begin taking action if you see the following signs of illness: • Not chewing cud • Not getting up • Pressing her head against wall or fence • Not eating • Feces aren’t pelleted • Not urinating or straining to urinate • Not drinking • Pale or grey eyelids or gums • Hot udder • Limping or staggering • Ears held oddly • Isolating himself from the herd • Grinding teeth • Coughing • Unusual crying • Runny nose or eyes HorseNRanchMag.com

ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTIONS BEFORE BUYING GOATS Although you probably are excited to buy goats and bring them home, taking some precautions to make sure that you get healthy goats is an important first step. After you have determined what kind of goats you want and how you intend to use them, you can eliminate goats from consideration by asking the following questions: • Are your goats registered? If so, with what registry? • What vaccinations do you give your goats? • Do you routinely test your goats for any diseases? • Are these goats negative for CAEV and CL? • Have you had any health problems in your herd, and if so, what were they? • Are your goats polled or disbudded? • Have you had any goats die from undiagnosed disease in the past few years? If so, what are the details? • Do you bottle-feed or dam–raise kids? Do you pasteurize the milk? • Have you had a history of abortion in your herd? • What is your feeding program? • What kinds of market weights do you get for your goats? (Meat) • How much fiber and what type do you get from your goats? (Fiber) • How much milk do you get from your goats? Are you on milk test? • Have you had any goats die from undiagnosed disease in the past few years? If so, what are the details? • Do you bottle-feed or dam–raise kids? Do you pasteurize the milk? • Have you had a history of abortion in your herd? • What is your feeding program? • If you’re buying goats to raise for meat: What kinds of market weights do you get for your goats? VOLUME 7 | ISSUE 1 2021

If you’re buying goats for fiber: How much fiber and what type do you get from your goats? • If you’re buying dairy goats: How much milk do you get from your goats? Are you on milk test? PREPARING FOR A VET VISIT TO TREAT A GOAT Before you call a vet to come to your farm or bring a goat in for a non-routine care visit — unless it is a serious emergency — take a few steps to make sure that your goat gets the most appropriate care. Make notes of the goat’s symptoms, how long it has been sick, and the medications or other care you’ve given so far. Sometimes remembering everything is hard when you’re under stress, and having this kind of information to share helps the vet make a correct diagnosis. If you have time, do the following before your vet visit: • Take the goat’s temperature. • Check its gums for color. • Listen for heart rate and ruminations. • Note whether the goat has • Injuries • Crusty eyes • Breathing problems or coughing • Diarrhea Check for dehydration by pinching the skin on the neck in front of the shoulder, using your thumb and forefinger. Note whether the skin snaps back to its normal position quickly or stays in a tent before it slowly goes back to normal. A slow return to normal indicates that the goat is dehydrated. Record all of your observations for the vet’s reference. Also be ready to share the goat’s history of prior illness, vaccinations, and other health care information.

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

Crock-Pot Rancher’s Roast Beef This Ranchers Roast Beef recipe might be the most perfect way to make roast beef in the crock pot. Ranch dressing mix, pepperoncini, and butter make the beef fall-apart tender and full of flavor. 1, 2-3 pound beef chuck roast 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 2 tablespoons canola oil .4 ounce ounce packet ranch dressing mix 1/2 cup sliced pepperoncini 1/4 cup pepperoncini juice 2 tablespoons butter 2 cups beef broth 1 tablespoon corn starch 1/2 cup sour cream Heat canola oil over med-high heat. Season roast with salt and sear in hot oil until golden brown. Place roast in crock pot and sprinkle with dressing mix, pepperoncinis, pepperoncini juice, and dot with butter. Cook in crock pot on LOW for 6-8 hours or HIGH for 3 ½ -4 or until the roast is fork-tender. Remove meat from pot

and drain off cooking juices into a sauce pan, skimming the top for excess fat. Add 2 cups of beef broth to the juices and bring to a boil. Mix 1 tbsp of corn starch with ¼ C of COLD water and slowly pour into the boiling broth mixture. Stir continuously until thickened and remove from heat. Stir in ½ cup of sour cream into the thickened broth and serve over the cooked meat.

Building FENCES If you raise livestock, you need a strong farm fence, simple as that. Fences aren’t just important for keeping animals in – or predators out – but also because they make your homestead look neat, tidy, and contained. Yet when it comes to building a fence, it’s definitely easier said than done. Here are some tips on building a strong fence on your farm – and one that will last for generations to come.

1. Obtain Necessary Permits

First things first, check in with the authorities in your area to find out whether you are going to need a building permit. Nine times out of ten, you won’t – but it’s worth it to check to avoid any costly fines or levies against you. Often, a building permit is inexpensive. It’s just a matter of completing the proper paperwork. Sometimes, there may be restrictions related to the height, width, or appearance of the fence, too. Don’t forget to call Dig Safe before you begin work so all underground utilities are marked. It pays to do your research!

2. Lay Things Out Ahead of Time

Next, you will want to measure and mark the area in which you intend to build your fence. One of the most important issues you will need to address is whether there are any easements related to the area in which you plan to build your strong farm fence. Compare the area you intend to build on with a recent survey. Building a fence where you shouldn’t – even accidentally – can cause a lot of headaches in the future, especially if you need to sell the property at some point. Know where your property lines are (down to the inch!) before you start any kind of fence installation or repair. Then, mark the fence clearly and adequately with a line and stakes. Again, check this by comparing an updated survey so that you know you are contained in the boundaries of your property lines. If you haven’t had the land surveyed in quite some time, do so now. It’s a good rule of thumb to mark approximately six inches from within the property line. This should give you plenty of room to fit the wider posts and the overall structure of your fence. If you’re putting up an electric fence, you might need as much space – but it’s best to err on the side of caution. While you are still planning, read our article explaining a snow fence. While you are doing all this work, you might as well plan ahead for the winter and have a permanent snow fence installed to keep your driveway clear. 14

VOLUME 7 | ISSUE 1 2021

3. Address Slopes and Elevation

Building a strong farm fence might seem like some pretty elementary stuff, but once you start working with slopes or elevation, the math is going to get trickier. Try to account for this ahead of time. If the slope is minor, you may not have to make many adjustments. However, for more serious elevation increases, you may need to use a fence that is stepped, in which your fence looks just like small individual steps. To do this, you will need to individually measure and cut the pieces, so mark this out ahead of time. For some fencing materials, slope and elevation might not matter as much. But it’s important to take elevation into account, as you want to guarantee that your fence isn’t too short or tall so that animals can get over or under it.

4. Don’t Neglect Your Corner Posts and Braces

Corner braces are without a doubt the most important features of a livestock fence. These will serve as anchor points for your fence and will take the brunt of the force from both fence lines. Before you plan out any other feature of your fence, map out where you want those corner braces to go. There are several types of braces including H braces, N braces, and braces with wood posts and wires. More often than not, a pasture fence will have two H-races back to back. One of the biggest issues, especially in soft soil, is that corner posts are not deep or thick enough. Don’t skimp on these features!

5. Decide on a Material

When it comes to building materials for your strong farm fence, you’ll have no shortage of options. While wood, page wire, and electric tend to be the most common building materials, some people even use unique materials like composite and vinyl (though not often, since these are more expensive). Consider the animal you plan on housing within the fence’s boundaries before you settle on a material. While chickens can get by with a flimsy, yet tall, barrier, pigs are going to need extra reinforcements to keep them contained. For more docile animals, like sheep, you can get by with page wire – but you’re going to want it to be tall enough so that predators like coyotes are kept out. HorseNRanchMag.com

If you plan on grazing multiple species, ensure that the fence is designed and constructed to keep the wiliest animal contained. Usually, that’s goats. Goats are known as jumpers and can easily make their way out of even a tall fence. Pigs, on the other hand, stay low to the ground but can easily root under many low fence lines. Do your research to guarantee that your fence is made out of the strongest material that your budget can afford.

6. Install Deep Fence Posts

Fence posts can consist of a variety of materials, including cedar and steel. There are advantages and disadvantages to materials of all kinds, but no matter what, ensure that you are driving those posts as deep as they can go. The deeper the posts are, the stronger your farm fence will be. This can be a challenge in dense, rocky soils. You may need to use a pneumatic post pounder to get them into the ground. Even if it costs you a bit extra to rent one of these machines, trust me – it’s worth it. You want those posts sturdy. Try to get the posts at least three feet deep, but four is even better. At a minimum, the posts should sit at least six inches beneath the frost line so that they don’t shuck and jive each season. When you set your fence posts, space them far enough apart. When you are using barbed wire, you will want a post every sixteen or so feet, but in an electric fence, you really only need posts every eighty to one hundred feet. For other types of fences, though, you might need to space about twenty to thirty feet apart. Research your fence type to determine the best post spacing. This can save you time and money!

7. Use Concrete for Stabilization

If the structural integrity of your posts has you concerned (or even if you simply want to add some extra insurance), it’s a good idea to use concrete to keep them in place. You can pour in mixed concrete or you can use a fixed form, such as a Sonotube, to save you some time. If you’re concerned about drainage being an issue in your fence post holes, you can add some gravel in the hole, too. This will prevent water from causing frost heave and damaging your fence posts.

8. Purchase Quality Hardware

Don’t buy the cheapest screws, staples, and nails you can find when you are erecting your fence. Remember, the stronger your farm fence is, the less you’ll have to worry about animals getting out (or in). Use stainless steel or galvanized hardware, as these will be resistant to corrosion and rust. To make the whole process easier, you can also invest in a quality post hole digger, which you can use all over the homestead afterward too, as long as you bought a quality tool.

9. Invest in a Good Gate and Hang it Right

The stronger your fence posts are, the stronger your gate will be. Make sure you brace your posts while you are setting them, as this will support your gate. You should also use three sets of hinges on your gate instead VOLUME 7 | ISSUE 1 2021

of two. Again, this will provide additional support to your gate. When you purchase your gate, again, consider your type of livestock. You also need to consider your operation size (how many animals you have) and your infrastructure. A larger gate is necessary to accommodate large machinery, like tractors, as it will be necessary for large animals (like cattle).

10. Measure Twice and Cut Once

Try to be as specific and accurate as possible with your measurements. A good saying to live by when you’re building a strong farm fence – or really any structure on your farm – is to measure twice and cut once. This way, you’ll be sure you aren’t making any mistakes or miscalculations. It sounds obvious, but you need to make sure your fence posts are plumb and that the fence is level across the top. It should also be in a straight line! Not only will a wonky fence look strange, but it’s not going to be as structurally sound, either.

11. Keep An Eye On Your Animals

Once you let the animals loose in the new pasture for the first time, don’t think your work is done. You should keep an eye on them for at least an hour to make sure they are adapting well and also that your fence is passing muster. Your animals will be the best detectors of any holes or gaps in the fence, so let them show you if you have made any mistakes!

Why a Sturdy, Secure Fence Matters

A good fence will not only keep your livestock contained, but it will also keep predators out. Whether you’re grazing hundreds of cattle or just a few pigs, knowing the ins and outs of this kind of project is vital to a successful farming operation. Not only can a strong farm fence add visual appeal and resale value to your farm, but it can also serve as a nice divider. You will be able to mark out specific sections of your property so that it’s easy to manage your animals and your land. While building a strong farm fence for the first time can certainly be a daunting task, it’s something that you will become quite skilled at over time. My own farm is living proof. Although the first fences that we built on our farm are quite humbling to behold, our most recent projects are picture-perfect and have done a great job at keeping all of our livestock contained. Practice makes perfect, and that’s especially true on the farm! By Rebekah Pierce - morningchores.com

Building CONFIDENCE on the TRAIL and in CAMP

W

e trail ride and camp with our horses because there is nothing better in the world than enjoying the outdoors with our furry friends. Yet, it’s not always perfect. When you’re in any situation (riding or otherwise), the more confident you are, the less likely you are to find yourself in trouble. Confidence also helps you feel more capable of controlling yourself and your horse in stressful situations.

These are the tools that I use to improve my confidence. They’ll work for you as well. CONFIDENCE IN THE SADDLE: Go back to basics and get back on the ground. Many riders, myself included, with confidence issues tend to focus on the problems they’re having when they’re in the saddle, when in reality the issues begin on the ground. Take for example a horse that doesn’t stand quietly when you get in the saddle. It can be intimidating as well as an inconvenience and a safety issue. Issues like this have one common denominator. The animal doesn’t respect you. This process of earning your horse’s respect starts on the ground as you teach your horse to respond to your cues. As your horse learns to respect your rules through groundwork, you’ll see those same lessons carry over to your riding. A friend and mentor of mine, Ty Evans, elucidated this concept with this question. “If your mule doesn’t listen to you when you’re on the ground, why on earth would it listen when you’re on its back?” Groundwork is about establishing better control over your horse’s movements. As your animal learns to recognize 16

your cues and to move accordingly he’ll gain a better understanding of your expectations and be used to following your lead. As you teach your horse to respect your rules through groundwork, you’ll see those lessons carry over to your riding. You’ll also grow more confident in the saddle with a clear understanding of how your horse moves and responds. In your relationship with your horse, there needs to be a leader and that leader needs to be you. You’re the only one in the partnership who knows the plan. After all you’re the one who knows whether you’re turning right or left at the next trail junction, where to safely cross the river, or where camp is for the night. The key to communicating with your horse and making yourself the leader—is education and repetition. Start at the beginning and take it slowly. Pay as much attention to the small details of riding as you do to your animal’s health. Cocoa wants to take a step when I’m loading the pack saddle? Fine. We’ll practice moving our feet until she’s re-learned that when the saddles are out it’s work time. We practice this at home so that it’s not an issue at the trailhead. CONFIDENCE WHEN CAMPING: Practice, practice, practice. You might have a ride in mind that involves camping midway through, or there could just be an urge to spend some quality time at an established horse camp. Camping adventures give you an incredible diversity in the options for your trips, allowing you to access areas that may not be possible to you when home is your base camp. It’s also really easy to make mistakes that can derail your enjoyment. That’s why it’s important to feel confident in what you’re doing so you can concentrate on the reasons why you decided to do this in the first place. The sense of achievement from being in the wide open and possibly having pushed yourself out of your comfort zone is incredible!  My first camping trip of every year is in the back pasture. I’d much rather try a new piece of gear, have an equipment failure, or find that I’ve misplaced a vital piece of gear, close to home rather than an hour, or more, away. Just as we become more confident with every additional minute spent in the saddle, we become more confident in camp through experience camping. When I set up camp in the back pasture I pretend that I’m 20 miles inside the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex, not 800 feet from a hot shower. Set up camp the same way that you would in a “real” situation and you’ll soon learn what works and what doesn’t. HorseNRanchMag.com

DON’T HURRY: Slow is smooth, smooth is fast. Don’t rush to failure. When you’re addressing a new skill set, leading a pack mule, tying a double diamond, or any other part of trail riding and camping, take your time. Be slow and deliberate. When we rush into situations that we’re not ready for, we forget to check the fine points and we all know it’s the details that count. Start at the beginning and

gradually work your way out. If you’ve never horse camped before don’t start planning a 2 week pack-trip right away. Work up to those bucket list adventures in small steps. Practice makes proficient, and proficient leads to perfection. Take your time and really practice and work towards your goal, whatever it is. Before you move up, your current skills should be smooth and relaxed for you and your horse. If you’re confident, your horse is confident, you’ve done the basics, then you’re probably ready. Be deliberate, don’t rush to failure, acknowledge the progress you’ve made, clap for yourself, and keep pushing forward! NEVER MIND THE MISTAKES: Mistakes are proof that you are trying. Despite what some on social media may declare; everyone makes mistakes. The key is learning from those mistakes so that we don’t make the same ones again.

PALM PARTNERSHIP TRAINING™ Building a Partnership with Your Horse

3. Walk the test on the ground in the dressage arena. 4. If you are starting to compete or need to improve your scores, you need to have more accuracy in your figures and transitions. When you are at the show and the ring is closed to horses, inquire with the show secretary and see if you can walk your test in the arena. This is a great time to gain confidence, confirm your memorization, and be more accurate when riding the test.

Western Dressage: Preparing for your Test By Lynn Palm

5. You can also use your vision and recite the test looking at the dressage arena. I also start the test over if I come to a spot where I forget what comes next or make a mistake. This is also good to do when you take a break in the warm up ring and when you have your boots wiped off prior to entering the ring.

When it comes to practicing your dressage test, you can use a “call person” or memorize the test. The choice is yours. The length of a dressage test can be very intimidating to remember, but I think it is always better to memorize the test. One good thing to know is that when competing a dressage test, if you forget or go off pattern, you will not be disqualified. You will receive a 2-point penalty and be allowed to regain your correct spot and continue. You will receive a normal score and can still place at the show. Of course, you really don’t want to go off pattern during competition, as it can be disturbing to your test.   A call person can serve as extra support during your test. Having a call person may help you concentrate more on your horse and your performance. When you have shown the test a few times, you will feel more comfortable with the test and be able to complete it without a call person.  Here are my tips and suggestions on how to learn dressage tests: 1. Learn the test by reading the test and following it on a blank dressage ring. 2. Using an erasable pen, draw the test on the laminated blank dressage ring. Draw each component one by one. The dressage test books that we have will also let you see each component so you can really learn how to be accurate when riding the figures and transitions.

Tips when you use a caller: 1. Practice at home with the caller you are going to use in the ring. 2. Make sure the caller knows you and your horse and that their voice is one that you can recognize and hear.

3. When you practice with your caller, make sure the caller does not call the components too soon or too late. If so, practice until the caller gets the timing right for each component.

Get the word out!

4. Make sure your caller will go to E or B with the wind behind their back if the test takes place outside in the weather. 5. The caller can be of great help, or they can mess you up. You have to practice with the caller, and be sure that the caller is very experienced with the test. A caller can be a great confidence boost. If you feel more comfortable with a caller, use one. Whichever method you choose, good luck and have fun! To help you prepare and practice, I have wonderful laminated Dressage Test books that are a perfect tool to learn the tests.
