I learned the art of building saddles 25 years ago from a very well-known saddle maker in the industry, my uncle. I have been in business for myself for the last 12 years at Jeys Saddlery. I have built and shipped saddles all over the world from the US to Canada, Italy, Sweden and Australia.


Here at Jeys Saddlery, I pride myself on the fact that every saddle is built from start to finish here in my shop in San Angelo, TX. Every bit of cutting, splitting, tooling, sewing, stitching and every other detail it takes to build a great saddle is done in house. Any question you can have about getting a saddle built, I can answer it with 100% certainty.

Weather Safety What career can you have in which you can be wrong at least fifty percent of the time and still not be fired? A meteorologist! With that said, the weather is sometimes anything but a laughing matter. It can cause everything from fires to floods, and you need to make sure that you’ve done everything you can to protect your beloved equines in the event of even a minor disaster.

Lightning An electrical storm can oftentimes be a horse owner’s worst nightmare. Clouds form when warm air rises from the ground, heats the air above it, and then is subsequently cooled by water vapor in the sky. The temperature in the upper portion of the cloud is naturally extremely cold, oftentimes forming pieces of ice that eventually start to bump into themselves in a million tiny collisions. Over time, the collisions cause an electrical charge to be built up, with the positively charged particles staying at the top of the cloud and the heavier, negatively charged particles residing at the bottom. Eventually both charges grow large enough to touch, with the result being lightning. When this happens and a bolt of lightning strikes, it naturally tries to find its way to the ground via the path of least resistance. Horses will usually listen to their instincts to try to find a low, protected area to ride out a storm. However, in the event that lower ground is not available in their pasture, you will most likely see them huddled around a tree. Trees are often lighting’s preferred path to the ground due to their moisture making them a better conductor than the air, along with the fact that they are often the tallest point in the vicinity. Of all trees, oaks and poplars tend to be both

12  Flag’sUP June/July 2017

taller and contain a higher moisture content, which increases their chances of being struck. When lightning strikes a tree in which a horse, cow, or even a person is standing under or near, the current passes through the tree, spreads out through the ground around it, and then can flow into that being, resulting in electrocution. The same can happen if a bolt were to hit a wire fence that someone was standing too close to, or even a barn or other small structure. The good news is that a few preventative measures can lower your risks of being affected by lightning. If your horse typically likes to seek shelter under tall, solitary trees, consider putting up fencing that will prevent them from getting too close. You should also consider the risks when deciding where to place things like run-in sheds. Drainage options might make you tend to place these buildings on upper ground, but a lower location might be the better choice. You’ll also want to ensure that both buildings and fencing are grounded, which involves a steel or copper pipe being driven into the earth that gives current a direct path to the ground. Finally, make sure that you have a working fire extinguisher handy in the event that a lightning strike causes a blaze.

Heavy Storms

While lightning can be a piece of the threat during a heavy storm such as a tornado or hurricane, the wind and rain that accompany the event can also be a danger to your horse. The main question that horse owners often ask is whether it is safer for their horse to be in the barn or the pasture. Unfortunately, there is not a single right answer to this question as a lot depends on your personal set up. Horses in a large pasture do have the option to try to re-locate to a different area, unlike a horse locked inside a barn that is unlucky enough to be in path of the storm. On the other hand, pastured horses may be struck by flying debris or the previously mentioned lightning when left outside. While it is costly, the best option would be an underground storm shelter, which can be made to mimic a horse trailer to allow for the most comfortable place for your favorite equines to weather the storm. In the event that you don’t have this luxury available to you though, there are still measures that can be taken to increase your horse’s chances of survival in the event of the disaster. For example, when a warning is declared, put leather or breakaway halters or leather neck tags on every horse at your facility. Make sure that the halters have at minimum your phone number on them so others will know who to contact in the event that they get lost

during the storm. You can also braid contact information into their manes or tails, or even write directly onto the horse with a grease pen if you would prefer not to have a halter on them. You should also evaluate any structures that your horse may reside in during a heavy storm. Things like hurricane clips and reinforced beams and tie-ins could make the difference between the structure remaining standing and the alternative. Consider any items that could become projectiles during the emergency and remove them as best you can. Another tip is to place fly masks on especially any outside horses to help avoid eye injuries, as well as heavy turnout blankets to protect them from flying debris.

Floods, Earthquakes, Wildfires, and Other Emergencies

No matter what the emergency has turned out to be, one of the best pieces of advice is to listen to the experts. If your area has issued a notice to evacuate, do not hesitate! You would much rather leave and it turn out that you did not have to, than stay and wish you would have left. Prior to the disaster occurring, sit down and create an emergency plan that includes how you will act in the event of evacuation. If you do not have the means to trailer all your animals at one time, decide what you will do for each individual prior to leaving. Remember that in the event of a wildfire, it is oftentimes not the actual flames that cause the most damage to you and your livestock, but rather the smoke, which can affect you from miles away. When creating your plan, ask yourself questions such as who to call to notify of your plans, where you will go, how you will get there (including alternate

routes if possible), and when you plan to leave. Make a list of the items that you think you will need ahead of time, being sure to include buckets for feed and water, as well as any extra halters, leadropes, fly spray, and any necessary medications or supplements. Keep first aid kits in both the barn and any trucks or trailers that you may use during an evacuation and know how to use them! Primarily though, remember to get yourself to safety first. You cannot help your horses after the storm if you are injured (or worse)! Heidi Cook has been riding/training horses for over twenty-five years.

April 21-23 May 12-14 November 7-11

Chaplain’s Corner “Ownership/Patents” As I was remembering the article from last issue on God owning our bodies (houses) with us occupying one part of the duplex house, it led me to think about all that God, the Creator, does own. “The earth is the LORD’s and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it” (Psalm 24:1 ). When someone creates something, they own it, right? Yes, then to insure ownership rights, one may apply for a patent from the USPTO. It sometimes takes some time to get that patent approved with all the necessary governmental paperwork. So in the meantime, the patent is pending. If someone else steals your idea during that time period, can they claim it or is your ownership assured? That’s always up to question and debate with court cases that can ensue. Since God created everything and he is God, He owns everything and everyone. He, in a sense, has the patent on each one of us as a whole. But it’s somewhat like the issue of patent pending. I believe until a person acknowledges who God is (has the approved patent) and desires to follow His ways, the patent on us is still pending. It is subject to theft. The Bible tells us the devil comes to steal and destroy while Jesus comes to give us abundant life (John 10:10 paraphrased). So I ask you, is your patent pending or completed? Are you in danger of having your patent (life) stolen or made abundant? It’s much like the church sign I saw one day which said, “Be a heart donor, give your heart to Jesus”. That’s the idea of getting the approved patent application. Part of that application process

includes understanding that we can’t get the patent approved solely on our own. We need a redeemer. Someone to get all the paperwork correct. Someone who has the authority and direct line to God. That would be Jesus. It’s like having a lawyer or advocate for you. As we just passed through the Easter season, perhaps the most important time for Christians, since without the empty tomb, our faith would be meaningless. With the empty tomb, Christians have something that no other faith has – a patent of a Risen Savior and Lord who overcame death; a Redeemer who absorbed all the sins for those that believe and trust in Him. While God has always owned us from the beginning of time, disobedience and sin broke the original patent so to speak. Since man and woman disobeyed the one provision of that original patent – eating from the forbidden tree in the Garden of Eden, God had to go through with the consequences of that act of disobedience which He had warned them about in the beginning. He told them that if they disobeyed then they would surely die. So all of us will die but because God is a loving and merciful God, He doesn’t leave us without a way out of eternal death. He restored His patent agreement with us through the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus – our Redeemer. Without our Redeemer, we would be only in the patent pending stage never to get that ultimate patent issued from the heavenly government. So what does God require of us. Apply for the patent through Jesus

Christ. Admit you do not own yourself and need Someone to redeem you from all your sins because “all have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory” (Romans 3:23) and “the wages [consequences] of sin is death” (Romans 6:23b). But if we finish verse 23, it goes on to say “but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Then later on in Romans, you can find the specific plan of action on that patent “if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that god has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9) Even in the Old Testament we have such wonderful news from God. Micah 6:8 “…What does the LORD require of you but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?” I close with simple, straight-forward thoughts of what God’s will is for all those He owns and has a patent on: (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18) “Always be: Joyful Prayerful Thankful Full of praise for God Full of fellowship with Him” “May the LORD bless you and protect you. May the LORD smile on you and be gracious to you. May the LORD show you His favor and give you His peace” (Numbers 6:24-26) Chaplain Margaret McLain Team Penners for Christ
