Amazing AMHR Nationals!

It was another stellar year for American Miniature Horse competition at the AMHR National Show in September. Once again, even in a tough economy, exhibitors were out in force with their horses in Tulsa vying for championships and top tens. Participation and entries were on par with other recent years, and the show fielded well more than 1,500 horses. Our members should be proud of their continuing commitment to this breed. Thanks should go to everyone – staff, participants, sponsors, volunteers, prize donors and others — who made this year’s national championship another hale & hearty success.

Sun, Fun & Business in Orlando!

Many members made a trip to the Kissimmee/Orlando, FL, area for the annual convention in November. Ruthanne Cimiotta, Gerry Morris and other dedicated Area 3 folks put on another great meeting. Kudos to these ladies and the volunteers who helped. Meetings were well attended and featured good discussion and some important rule making and changes. Convention-goers enjoyed a fun trip to Arabian Nights on Thursday evening and saw some of the Shetlands that have become part of that organization in the last year. There was a good banquet, a trainers’ auction and a busy Hall of Fame breakfast. Check out more details elsewhere in this issue.

Thanks & Welcome …

A huge “thank you” should go to the outgoing officers, directors and committee chairs of the ASPC/ AMHR/ASPR. The time and effort these folks have given on behalf of this organization and its breeds has not been trivial. Welcome to the newly elected directors who were seated at convention. Best wishes to the new officers and the entire national board for a successful 2010. Best wishes to staff, committee chairs and committee members for a successful year as well.

Happy Holidays …

… To our wonderful members and subscribers. The Journal staff especially wishes to thank our 2009 advertisers and contributors who supported the magazine this past year. We have enjoyed working with you and look forward

Dear Members:

I have spent a lot of time thinking about this letter to you – what to say, how to say it, and what it will sound like when repeated on the Internet. First, let me say congratulations to the winners at AMHR Nationals in Tulsa. Everyone involved should be proud of being a part of the largest small equine show in the world, and one of the largest equine shows, large or small, in America. Your 2009 convention was packed with five days of meetings and work for everyone in attendance. A big “thank you” with an even bigger round of applause to Ruthanne and her group for a job well done. Now on to the business at hand. I’m going to talk to you as if we were sitting around the kitchen table with a cup of coffee. I am going to discuss with you what is happening in your association and the steps your Board of Directors are taking to take care of these matters. We’ll start with the financial situation the club is in. As many of you know, when I was first elected president, the club had equity of about $90,000.00 – today the club’s equity is about 2.7 million. Yes, $2,700,000. This was achieved through the hard work and devotion of your Board of Directors, office personnel and the leadership of past presidents. Some of these people are D.D. Gutman, Dennis Robison, Glenn Nicolls, Dennis O’Keefe, Zona Schneider, Joe Schroeter and Dave Diemer. Next time you see one of them at a show or anywhere, give them a big “thank you” for a job well done. Hopefully putting this knowledge in your hands will stop the rumors that the club is having financial trouble. The questions now arising will be why the membership dues were raised and why the costs of member services were not lowered since the club is financially sound. The club has held the line on the cost of membership dues for a number of years now. As anyone living in the real world knows, the cost of everything has been going up, up, up. Raising the membership dues was a necessity in order to keep up with the rising costs. When the dues are $45, only $5 is available for the actual run-

The Journal December ‘09/January ‘10

ning of the club. The cost to run this club last year was approximately $1.3 million ($1,300,000), an amount which includes all the expenses of the club. While the club makes some of its operating capital off some of the other items, membership dues are the backbone of the funding for the work done for the membership – registration, transfers, etc. One of the largest expense items the club has each year is the Hall-of-Fame and All Star awards. Now do not go running out screaming that I want to do away with these programs, as that is NOT what I am saying. I believe these two programs are an important part of our club. We are discussing money here – dollars and cents – and other than the general fund, the only funding these two programs get is from the show approval fees. At $35 per judge, it would take a huge number of shows to generate the money needed to pay for these programs. Last year alone the show department costs were more than $70,000. Again, I believe very strongly in these two programs. It is simply time for the membership to remember the programs are not “free”; therefore, something has to bring in the money to fund them. In closing, I want to thank your Board of Directors for electing me president again this year. I will do everything in my power to continue the financial integrity of this club. Hope to see you at a show somewhere next season and please pray for our men and women in uniform across the world working to ensure our freedom. Larry Parnell ASPC/AMHR/ASPR President

Congratulations to all 2009 AMHR National Show Exhibitors. All winners & Top Ten recipients can be proud of their achievements. The quality of the horses was tremendous, and overall it was another fabulous National Show with many special moments. The elections for area ASPC Board members have been held and the results are as follows: Alicia Slocumb – Area 3 (vote must be ratified), Patrick Sanders – Area 4, Belinda Bagby – Area 5, Jim Curry – Area 7, and Laurie Villalpando – Area 8. Thank you to Gerry Morris, Ruthanne Cimiotta and Rusty Houle along with the Area III Shetland and MH Club for all the hard work put forth to host the 2009 ASPC/AMHR/ASPR Convention in

Kissimmee, FL. At the annual banquet several of the 2008 Pony and Horse of the Year and 2008 Breeders of the Year recipients were present to receive their awards. The past and present Royalty participants were on hand for a lovely Royalty ceremony. On Thursday evening members were treated to the Arabian Nights event thanks to M and D Printing of Henry, Illinois. M and D Printing has been printing The Journal for 16 plus years, and this was their way of thanking ASPC for our continuing business. It would be great if each and every one attending the Arabian Nights gala event would send a thank you note directly to M and D Printing at the following address: M and D Printing Attention: Mike Kingery, President PO Box 493 Henry, Illinois 61537-1059

show and meal, ASPC/AMHR members also enjoyed a backstage tour and checked up on the Shetlands that have been donated to Arabian Nights in the past year. In addition to the fun, members certainly saw to the convention business at hand, participating in meetings and discussing rules and agenda items. You can see drafts of minutes describing some of the action elsewhere in this issue although much of the convention business is pending board approval next spring. The annual banquet featured several special awards presentations such as plaques for last year’s horses & ponies of the year and the introduction of the new queen and ambassador. Once again there was an auction conducted by the Trainers’ Committee to raise funds to allow the trainers to continue their generous support of special awards for amateurs and youth at Congress and AMHR Nationals. Saturday included the popular Hall of Fame breakfast followed by the presentation of plaques for the most recent class of equine Hall of Fame inductees as well as several youth awards. The winners of the creativity awards program were also announced. The convention wrapped up with the Annual General Meeting and then the final board of directors meeting. See more detailed coverage elsewhere in this issue.

The Journal.

Wishing you all a joyous season and a prosperous new year! 2009 AMHR Nationals Repeats Successes. “Another rousing success” … Those words describe the 2009 AMHR National Show. Members were out in force at Expo Square in Tulsa, OK, in September to have their Miniature Horses compete for top national titles despite the continuing slow economy. As always, this annual championship featured a full complement of competition from youth to amateur to breeders’ incentives to open classes & grand championships. This show remains the largest small equine shows anywhere in the world and drew nearly 1500 horses this year. There were hundreds of great classes, many special awards, some fun activities and a lot of camaraderie. Be sure to check out special AMHR National Show section for in-depth coverage of this stellar competition.

Convention 2009 Gave Members Fun In The Sun. The ASPC/AMHR/ASPR National convention was held in November in Kissimmee, FL. Ruthanne Cimiotta and Gerry Morris coordinated the event with the help of some steadfast members from the Area III club and in the Florida area. Many members took advantage of the warm and sunny location to hit the pool as well as some of the fun tourist destinations of nearby Orlando. Most of the convention-goers enjoyed Thursday night’s trip to Arabian Nights courtesy of M&D Printing, long-time printer of The Journal. In addition to the entertaining

North Texas Pony and Miniature Horse, Beautiful Northeast Texas Fall weather greeted the consignors and potential buyers on October 3, 2009, at the North Texas Pony and Miniature Horse sale held in Sulphur Springs, TX. Twenty sellers presented 105 ponies and Miniature Horses to the seventy-nine registered bidders. Ninety-two ponies and horses found new homes with thirty-eight buyers. There were 13 no sales, which is in line with past sales, and three ponies were unable to attend the sale. Sale prices ranged from $100 to $2,550 with the overall sale average being $340 per head. The high seller was lot #7, a February 2009 AMHR pending appaloosa filly. She was a well-colored, outstanding show prospect bred by Indian Creek Miniatures of Trenton, TX. They also had the second high seller, Lot #62, a yearling AMHR appaloosa stallion at $1,200. The top ten sellers brought from $2550 to $600. The demand was good for quality young show stock with many of the top ten sellers being weanlings and yearlings. The economy did affect the overall selling price on the nice riding ponies, with broke riding ponies bringing considerably less than in past years. On a positive note, several ponies sold to people new to the Shetland breed, and these folks are reportedly excited about learning more about ponies and about showing them. With several fall shows available in Area V, hopefully some took advantage of the chance to show their new stock in October and November. The North Texas Sale will be held once again on the first Saturday of October in 2010. Slots are quickly filling up and this sale is limited to 100 head. Checkout the website for complete sale prices and for information on consigning for 2010: www.northtexasponysale.com Local Sale Hosts Alumni Get Together. The Little Dude Ranch hosted several small equine sales at its home facility in Greencastle, IN. At the event on Labor Day Weekend in 2009, the Little Dude Expo saluted some folks who have been involved in the pony or Miniature business for many years. In total, there were twelve small equine enthusiasts who, L to R: Norman Sutherlin, Lidell Barnett, Fred Wilkes, together, represented Bob McCullough, Don Boone, Denny Collins, Ty Sutherlin, Rita King, John Cunningham, Bob King, Bud Soat & Jerry more than 500 total Osman.

A Night to Remember -

Those of you who were able to attend the Convention in Orlando were treated to meeting our two Shetland Ambassadors up close and personal at Arabian Nights. Both ponies appeared in the gypsy portion of the show, though Gus whose real job is visiting school children as Little Black in the Black Stallion Literacy Program suffered a little stage fright! Meanwhile Tap Dance Kid loves the limelight and is even featured on the front of the 2010 Arabian Nights Calendar. Another special thanks to our partners at M & D Printing who made the Arabian Night trip possible. Be sure and reward their enormous contribution with any printing projects you have coming up in the year.

I am most pleased to announce that we now have an official marketing intern: our own 2010 Queen Ali Olander is also going to serve as our marketing intern for college credits. Ali is a bright ambassador, and we are thrilled to have her input and assistance in breed promotion. v


Happy New Year, Area One members. It’s hard to believe that another year has passed. Looking back over the year, there were some good times, and with good times there are always some bad times. Area One was very sad to lose Linda Best from New Hampshire, but we were very happy to see the Best family at the Area One Show and to learn they were going to AMHR Nationals. Speaking of Nationals, please take a look through this issue of The Journal and take a look at the top ten placings earned by Area 1 members. Congratulations to all of the winners and exhibitors. Now the horses can return to their barns and just be horses for a few months. Since the last issue, some of us traveled to the Virginia State Fair at the beginning of October. This was the first year at the new fairgrounds, and overall I think the show was a success. We were standing outside of the ring on the first day when some gentlemen driving a golf cart approached us on. The men were members of the board and wanted to know what we thought of the new grounds. They let us know that they want the exhibitor to want to come to Virginia to show; therefore, they asked for us to send them emails on the grounds, both positive and negative. We look forward to attending more shows at these fairgrounds. As always it was nice to see some old friends while we were there. We had to leave on Friday night as we had commitments for the weekend. Delmarva Miniature Horse Club hosted their annual fall fun show on Sunday October 4 at the Heartland Equestrian Center. Approximately 25 Miniature Horses participated. Fun was had by all in such classes as the carrot race, musical buckets and Simon says. In addition to the fun classes, some halter classes, showmanship, liberty and halter obstacle classes were held to help exhibitors prepare for the next show season. This club is planning for their annual participation in the Horse World Expo at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in January 2010 as well as hosting their annual spring fun show. New members are always welcome. Later in October the Garden State Miniature Horse Association held their fall awards banquet in Hackettstown, NJ. The buffet was wonderful as usual,

and it was great to see our NJ friends. We were even treated to Ms. Wolfe’s famous strawberry shortcake as well as her other baked goodies. We always look forward to the New Jersey shows since we get to experience Ms Wolfe’s great cooking! Next we were off to the National Convention in Florida. Toby and I left early so we could vacation a little since during the show season we usually go our separate ways. We were able to visit the Kennedy Space Center, Daytona USA and the Magic Kingdom. Before we knew it we were picking up the rest of our group on Wednesday at the airport. We were joined by some of our youth as well as my sister and friend Heather. Toby had been researching something for us to do as a group, so we went for an airboat ride, which was wonderful. All of us had a great time, and the kids really liked petting the baby alligator at the end of the ride, that is everyone but JR! Before we knew it, the convention had started, and we were attending the committee meetings. Thursday night the entire group attended the Arabian Nights show, and we got to see the Shetland ponies in the show. We were especially happy on Friday night when they announced the 2009-2010 Ambassador since he was from Area One. Congratulations to Matthew Wilson for receiving this honor. This is the fourth young man in a row from Area One to be honored with this title. Matt joins Jon, JR and Corey as being named Ambassador. We are proud of all of them. Soon, the convention was coming to an end. Several members from Area One received Hall of Fame plaques. You will be able to read the Hall of Fame inductees in a future issue of The Journal. I hope all who attended had a great time, and we are looking forward to attending the 2010 convention in Little Rock, Arkansas. That’s about all I have to report at this time. Take care. I hope you all enjoyed the holidays. Happy New Year! Don’t forget to send all news to Nina O’Bryan natstables @aol.com 3842 Seven Hickories Rd, Dover DE 19904 v

on the ratification vote once the results have been tabulated and the board has acted. If the vote is not ratified, arrangements for an election will be made. Personally, I hope Area 3 members took part in saying whether you wanted the election results to stand or you wanted a new election to be held. Unfortunately, the protest prevented the seating of a director so Area III is currently without representation until the matter is resolved. This is a serious issue. Make your opinion known. Contact your directors. Editor’s note: Area III members should watch for information on this matter from the home office.

Greetings From Chattanooga! ELECTION NEWS

In October, Alicia Slocumb was elected to the open director seat on the national board at the election in Conyers, Georgia. Unfortunately there were some concerns about the election meeting quorum requirements so a protest was filed with the home office blocking this election. According to Illinois law, where the corporation is based, there are requirements for the percentage of participation necessary to meet quorum requirements in absence of ASPC/AMHR having their own rules for this. Therefore, it was recommended that steps be taken to ratify the election. Following convention, all members of Area III were mailed a form asking for the election to be ratified. Unfortunately, there were some technical problems with this mailing that resulted in some continuing review. Please watch for information

He gathered a small herd from the Masters, Winks, and JJ Pony lines and proceeded to breed some of the finest Foundation ponies in the American Shetland Pony history.’ The Wauk-A-Way ponies have a history of being consistent in conformation and are heavier boned and wider hipped.

but also he has been training, showing and breeding Miniature Horses and American Shetland Ponies for decades (we won’t say how many — we want him still talking to us). He is a respected judge, is a founding member of two of the major clubs in our area and has always generously volunteered his time and knowledge to one and all. Congratulations, Jim! And just think, you didn’t have to die to get it!

CONGRATULATIONS to everyone who was lucky enough to attend the 2009 AMHR Nationals in Oklahoma. According to Earl O’Bannon, president of PCMHC, there were about 35 members from that club in attendance and several had some impressive wins, too! Larry Whittington was there with Double A Dancin Cowboy, Snowberry Farms Good Fortune and Whittington’s B&L’s Sophie Rose and placed well. Another member, Lynn Bateman of Arabian Echo Miniatures had a super show with her D&S The Die is Cast, JC’s AE Millennium, AE Reverly and AE Rock Star. Cindi Thomas was thrilled with the performance of her LOF Special Edition Others who attended and did well with their Miniatures include Three Palms Ranch with Destiny’s Lil Miss Perfect and others and Ginny Amate with Lil Promises Shining Sara. Rosemary Cash was in Tulsa with CLR’s Wolf Power. Vista Del Valle Ranch garnered some good wins with Vista del Valle Uno Confiado and other Miniatures that they took. Eric and Jen Tani had a wonderful time with their stallion, Michigan’s Foxy Trotter, while Troy and Carlena Julian from Over the Top Ranch won big with Milagro, driven by Art Ramirez and another driving win with Troy as whip. If I missed anyone, sorry. As this is written, we have a couple members who are on the sick list. Virginia Flint, long-time member of ASPC/AMHR and former National Board member, as well as the writer of this column for years, has fallen again. This time she fell while gardening and broke her hip. Unable to crawl to the house, as she did the last time she fell and broke something, she had to lay there helpless for four hours until someone found her. Not fun. All the ponies were picked up and were being seen to and her little dog, Chi Chi, is with a family member. Virginia is recovering nicely at present. Best wishes, Virginia, for full recovery! Mimi Woolem of Fog Ranch Ponies was at home healing from partial knee replacement surgery when this column was due. She was doing well and the only problem is keeping her off the knee. Mimi doesn’t know the meaning of bed rest. Hmmm, now that’s something I personally do very well. Get well, Mimi; Doll’s having a foal next April, and you gotta be ready. This issue will most likely have some highlights from Convention this year, and among them will be Jim Curry’s People Hall of Fame award! It is an award he truly deserves. He is, and has always been, a powerhouse in our area. Not only is he our National Director,

Wow, so much to cover, so many events to talk about — and already it is time to say happy holidays and Happy New Year to all our friends and readers on both sides of our great border. The 2009 AMHR National Show featured so many great horses and so much fellowship. Although it can be lots of work, there are fun and ribbons to take home to proudly show off. Congratulations to everyone who took part. There were many from our area and club in attendance. Youth members Nigel, Devon, Tanner and MacKenzie come to mind from our area. Pam Christopher, Jim Newman, Rita Noble, Lori Rafter, Kim Barnett, Angela & Dennis Merner, John & myself, the Conrad family from Manitoba and Mary Ann Bartkewich all made the trip from Canada. Hopefully, I remembered all of our participants from North of the Border. It is always great to see so many attend from your home area. I hope you will take the time to look through The Journal to see the ads of the many who so proudly showed their horses and read about their many accomplishments in the show ring. The MHCO annual meeting was well attended with club members Walt & Fran Filipowicz attending for the first time from Michigan. They are getting very good at doing the border crossing as they also came up to one of our fall fairs to watch for the afternoon. Thanks folks — it is always great to have other members come to our many events. Convention — The weather was gorgeous with high temperatures in the 80s. Members from Canada who attended were Pam Christopher, Angela Merner and Amelia Murray. Everyone enjoyed the Arabian Nights show that was the entertainment one night at convention. A special thank you to sponsor M&D Printing for making the evening’s entertainment possible. It was lovely. As usual there was a lot of business to be covered in the many meetings, and all topics were discussed with great vigor, showing that, indeed, we have a lot of dedicated and interested people looking after the affairs of this great organization. Additionally, our directors worked tirelessly on our behalf; some of their meetings went very late as they took care of various aspects of business. The trainers did a fantastic job with their auction, which raises money for special youth trophies at Congress and Nationals. One thing I was happy to see passed was the decision to return to traditional colored ribbons for the National

Congratulations to all Area 8 local Year-End Award recipients! Due to time constraints and other commitments, I am sadly putting down the pen for this column. It has been a pleasure to participate and fun experience. If you have an interest to report our Area 8 news, please contact Amy Roberts at The Journal. I would like to part with these words to reinforce and remind members and readers that The Journal still remains one of the most economical and best avenues and resources for advertising your horses. It is one of the only periodicals that reach your direct market for the combined Pony and Miniature Horse industry! I can’t speak for anyone else, but I love seeing the pretty pictures and ads.

Of course, every farm does not raise babies and I am not advocating zero birth control for horses, but the economy is not the only thing suffering right now. As horse lovers and owners, what responsibilities do we have? How do we encourage new owners and at the same time not add to the unwanted horse problem? What are the statistics? How many barns, farms, and backyard breeders dump their babies?” All good questions for people to ponder in Area VI and beyond. Reminder: The Area VI National Show will be held in Winona, MN, over the Fourth of July weekend. v

clinic on April 17-18 at Archview Stables in IL. SMLEC will host three ASPC/AMHR shows in 2010 as well: May 22-23 and June 12-13 in Carthage, MO, and July 10-11 in DuQuoin, IL. The ASPC/AMHR show at Archview Stables on May 89 will also qualify for SMLEC year-end awards. Be sure to check out the ad about these events elsewhere in this issue. Central States Pony Association has selected “Under The Big Top” as the theme for the ASPC/AMHR show they are planning for June 1920 at Gordyville USA Arena in Gifford, IL. New this year, CSPA will offer a flat fee per division for YOUTH. As always, this show will offer payback in some classes. There are five two-judge shows being planned at Bertrands Horse Arena in Watseka, IL, for 2010. These are rated for Shetlands and Miniatures and will offer more than 300 classes. Be sure to see the BHR ad promoting these events in this issue.

MEMBER NEWS….

Rhyan Elizabeth Nichols was born October 8, 2009, to parents Austin and Sarah Nichols of Baldwin, WI. Grandparents Jackie & Stuff Tyler of Emerald Glenn Farm are undoubtedly already looking forward to her participation in youth activities. Congratulations are also in order for Rhonda Becker Giachetto and her husband, Tom. The couple welcomed son Bennett in early December. It will certainly be a banner day for the Beckers in a few years when this young man is old enough to show given the reign of girls this family has been blessed with for many years!

It appeared that the number of ring-side tables was up in 2009. The youth set-up and coloring contest display moved to the other side of the arena giving much more room for youth activities. Many youth were thrilled to win those tall trophies in kids’ classes thanks to the continuing generosity of the Trainers Committee. As in recent years, sponsors and vendors provided some extra give-aways, prizes or incentives. Several of the classes at R Nationals include privately sponsored awards for the winner as well. And, once again, Farnam Horse Products, presented two special Vetrolin® Grooming Awards at the show. As usual, there were numerous honors and various awards handed out to youth and amateur exhibitors. As previously mentioned, the Trainers Committee graciously provided those special trophies in the youth classes. Additionally, the Trainers sponsored reserve youth and amateur high point recognition. Also again this year, two lucky youth were the recipients of generous equine donations via an essay contest. A quick tour through the arena showed many neatly or enthusiastically decorated ringside tables. Showing off Pam Basham presents 2009 National Show Jr. Ambassador Sawyer Sansevere their pride in with his bucckle their horses and enthusiasm for the show, many stables also decorated their stabling area. New this year, there was a display of promotional “bricks” for notable champions. This was a new fundraising program for the Jack Schatzberg Adult Scholarship program. This scholarship activity is an ASPC/AMHR program that benefits adults who need to further their education and is conducted in honor of long-time AMHR National Show photographer Jack Schatzberg. Several owners of national champion Miniatures purchased a brick on which their horse’s name was inscribed and then the bricks were displayed on the mezzanine of the show arena. You can learn more about this program and offering elsewhere in this issue.

show is the youth and amateur participation. All of the classes, activities and awards for these special groups certainly demonstrate the wide-ranging versatility of our incredible small equine. Strong participation in the PMC further prove that the Miniature Horse and AMHR offer something for everyone. Another strong indicator of the popularity and viability of this breed and its organization is the robust participation in the Futurity. The size of some of these classes was truly staggering. The Futurities, the Amateur incentives or jackpots and the stakes payouts draw in participation and provide reward to members for their continuing support of the registry, its animals and its shows. Once again, the Futurities, stakes and incentives offered thousands in premiums and payouts. In addition to prize money, exhibitors could compete for special awards and give-aways. As usual, there were trophies for all national champions while the reserves each earned a silver tray. Of course, stake winners and halter grands earn coolers as well. The wellreceived special presentation of the halter grand champions returned this year again under the Royalty coordinator Pam Basham coordination and (right) crowns 2009 National Show Princess Erica Kuczer sponsorship of Renee Reiten. Following the final stallion championship on Thursday evening, the halter grand winners were all paraded through the arena in a special ceremony, and each grand champion received a beautiful flower bouquet. The majority of the remodeling and expansion at Expo Square is now finished, making this one of the most spacious and user-friendly show facilities. Exhibitors benefit from multiple warm-up rings, plenty of parking, numerous wash racks & bathrooms and much more. As always, the ring decorations were stunning and certainly added to the impression that this is truly a national caliber show. The detail and attention given to ring decorations is one of the most-appreciated features of the show. There was a notable number of advertising banners up at the end of the arena this year.

AMHR Stallion Sweepstakes

The AMHR Stallion Sweepstakes auction was rejuvenated in 2009 and had a VERY bright beginning. A total of 45 stallions were nominated - each paying a nomination fee of $200, for a total of $9,600 in nomination fees. Nominating a stallion and paying the fee entitles the stallion owner to breed one mare (to be designated by December 1) and show the resulting foal in the program. Bidding for those 45 stallions began on March 15, 2009, and closed on March 31 with a total of $17,900 in bids. Bidding was conducted “live” on-line through the Lil Beginnings Last Chance auction site. Winning bidders were able to breed one mare in 2009 to the stallion purchased to produce a foal eligible for the program’s designated class. Congratulations to Silver Meadows Jet Set Go, owned by Anita Ray of Silver Meadows Training Center, who was the highest stallion on the auction at $1,650! Overall, the grand total was a whopping $26,900, which is an average of $597.77 per stallion (based on this total)! This is more than TWICE as large as any sweepstakes EVER in the history of AMHR! All nominated stallions and designated mares must have DNA results on file with the University of Kentucky by December 1 of the auction and breeding year. Resulting foals from the 2009 program may be shown in special classes to be held at the 2010 Nationals at no additional entry fee. Foals placing in the top eight will be DNA tested and parentage qualified before funds will be paid out. One sad note, before nominations even closed, RFP Time Is Money, a stallion owned by Excaliber Training Center, died. He would have been an exciting addition to the program. There has been one very exciting development: because of the support of some wonderful patrons, no nomination or bid fees should be needed to cover administrative costs such as trophies, ribbons, etc. THANK YOU to Kay Marschel of De Neveau Farm, Plano, Texas, and Heather Troglauer of Mulligans Run Farm, Lexington, South Carolina, for their support. The AMHR Stallion Sweepstakes would not have been such a resounding success without the hard work by the committee members: co-chairs Bruce Abbott and Edward McCarthy II, and members Renee LaBarre Reiten, Jean Barnhill and Dr. Tom Taylor.

The Journal December ‘09/January ‘10

Plans for the 2010 auction (with resulting foals showing in 2011) are being finalized. Nominations are being taken and the bidding will begin soon. Watch the website for information on nominating YOUR stallion!

ASPC Limited Modern Weanling Sweepstakes

The Modern Weanling Sweepstakes is seeking nominations of stallions whose services will be offered in bidding starting January 31, 2010. This next Modern Weanling Sweepstakes stallion service auction will take place online. Proceeds from the sale of stallion services fund the purse offered to the eligible weanlings competing in their respective sweepstakes class. You can learn more on the program’s website at: www.modernsweepstakes.com. The following was a letter prepared by Modern Weanling Sweepstakes chair Sherri Jolliff for last fall’s national convention. Effective in 2010, the competition for the Modern Weanling Sweepstakes will find a new home at the Ohio State Fair show which made several generous offers for the program. October 28, 2009 Dear Modern Breeders;

First, let me say that I regret not being with you at this convention. Unfortunately, due to personal demands and those of my business, I am unable to attend. Many new and exciting things are taking place with the Modern Weanling Sweepstakes program. The most exciting of these is the announcement of the new home for the sweepstakes competition. Effective 2010, the weanling sweepstakes will be hosted in the heart of Modern Shetland country, at the Ohio State Fair in Columbus, Ohio. More excitement comes from our now being web based. Please visit us online at www.modernsweepstakes.com. Ohio State Fair and Judy Peters, equine show manager, have offered us so many wonderful opportunities of exposure for our modern weanlings and our breeding programs. First, a perpetual trophy to be retained by the winner for a year and a smaller replica trophy for permanent possession will be presented. Second, a display area will be provided for the stallions being presented, a

And, fourth, the class itself would be offered during an evening performance for ultimate viewing attendance. All of this is in addition to the many other opportunities to show our weanlings. There will be their respective sex class, the Area II futurity, the Get of Sire class, the Produce of Dam class, and the Mare and Foal class. And even more enticing, there is cash paybacks in every class. Also, there are individual sponsors ready to jump on board with other prizes to make the presentation of our Modern Shetland weanlings a prestigious event. If you have any questions regarding the Modern Weanling Sweepstakes, please feel free to contact me or any committee member. Also, watch for details on our website, www.modernsweepstakes.com.

YOUTH NEWS Sandy Grabow

When you get this, we will be kicking off a new year. Hopefully you enjoyed the holidays. With 2010 getting started, I would like you to know that the youth are alive and well. I also want to remind our youth and their parents or sponsors - there are programs for our kids that need just a few minutes of your time to apply for. Watch the website: www.aspcamhryouth.com for the newest youth pack that I hope will be out in February. First of all, we had a tremendous AMHR Nationals. Youth participation was extremely high with many large classes. I am estimating we had as many as 180 youth participating the various activities. Thank you to our many volunteers in Tulsa who helped with youth activities including a special thanks to Tammy & Dominque Belless and Lisa Borg for their hard work in Tulsa. We moved the youth activities to the mezzanine on the other side of the arena, and it gave us a lot more room. That came in handy for the new luncheon and mini carnival. Our youth loved taking a break from the show and had fun playing the games. As usual, AMHR Nationals included many of the regular activities for our ASPC/AMHR/ASPR young members. We had the Quiz Bowl, Junior Judging, Youth Website: teams competition, essay contest, parade and more. www.aspcamhryouth.com Cross Country Farm donated two yearling horses for this year’s essay contest and the winner of the Chance of Love essay contest was also announced in Tulsa. Of course, there were many special youth awards presented at the National Show. Be sure to check out the winners elsewhere in this issue. I still believe that all of our children who attend these shows and simply participate are winners. Congratulations to all of our youth members. Following AMHR Nationals, the next big event for us was the national convention. We had a great meeting with some wonderful discussions. At convention, some year-end awards were also presented to some deserving young people. Be sure to see the awards list elsewhere in this issue. Currently, we are putting the committee for 2010 in place and making plans for the new year. Be sure to check the website for updates on our youth programs. Don’t forget to download your 2010 youth packet and get started on your program tracking and awards now. Remember we have programs for youth who do not show their small equine; we have programs for the youth who only attend a couple of shows; and we have programs for those who show a lot. There are possibilities for all of our young enthusiasts. v 152

Spotlight on . . .

Sawyer Sansevere

AMHR National Show Jr. Ambassador had a Reserve National title in Youth Jumper Over. At the 2009 Shetland Congress, I was one of the youngest National champions after winning Classic Open Hunter. So, it’s been a pretty great show season that was topped off by being Junior Ambassador. Now that the show season is over, I am back at school as a sixth grader in Orono, MN. I am on the cross country team. When I am not doing schoolwork or running, I am with our minis and helping my mom get a few of the younger ones ready to compete in driving and jumping classes next season. v

My name is Sawyer Sansevere and I am 12 years old. I have many wonderful memories from the 2009 AMHR Nationals, and not just because I was fortunate enough to win four National championships in youth classes. I always will cherish the opportunity I had to be the Junior Ambassador at AMHR Nationals. I had a terrific time helping out in center ring and handing out trophies and ribbons to people, and I really enjoyed meeting the great people who work in center ring every year. I worked mostly the night sessions at AMHR Nationals because my family often was showing in the last class every evening. Sometimes, the classes didn’t end until after midnight, but I didn’t mind. Classes in the night sessions were primarily driving classes, and that’s something I enjoy. Three of my National titles came in driving classes: Youth Roadster in the Under and Over divisions and Youth Park Harness Over. I also won Youth Jumper Under in the 8-12 age group, and

Erica Kuczer

AMHR National Show Princess Erica Kuczer has been a noted youth presence in the northern portion of Area 4 for several years. Now, all of AMHR has seen Erica in action after she served as the 2010 AMHR National Show Princess. Erica has been active with Miniature Horses for more than 12 years. Her grandparents Linda and Tom Kuczer own Kuczer Miniature Equine and Equipment in Pulaski, WI, and the family has been involved with the Northeast Wisconsin Miniature Horse Club. Erica has been active in that club and received their first Outstanding Youth award. Erica is the daughter of Bob and Saucey Kuczer. At home, Erica works with her horses in their various disciplines and prepares them for their shows. She is certainly hard working and does all of the chores for her horses, getting up early each day to care for them before

school. After school, she cleans the barn, works horses, grooms them and does evening chores. She also enjoys trail rides and can often be found giving rides to her little sisters. The Kuczers attend several shows every summer, and Erica enjoys competing. In addition to showing her horses, Erica also enjoys trails drives, clinics and fun shows. Erica does everything she can to volunteer and assist with activities of the Northeast Wisconsin Miniature Equine club. In addition to belonging to NEWMHC, 155

Thank You to the Following Sponsors for Supporting Youth At AMHR Nationals

Erica is active in 4-H and FFA. In 4-H she shows horses and often enters photography as well. She attends Pulaski High School where she is in the Red Raider Marching band. She has been in forensics and on the student council as well. In addition to working with Miniatures and her activities at school and in clubs, Erica enjoys deer hunting, cooking, riding her four-wheelers, skiing, spending time with friends and playing with her younger sisters. Erica says that what she likes best about Miniature Horses is that they are fun. She also appreciates the extra things you can do with small equine that you can’t do with their larger cousins, such as take them inside. At the 2009 AMHR Nationals, Erica was a hard-working presence in center ring. She worked many, many hours handing out awards with good grace and a smile on her face. v

Now am looking forward to the new season getting underway … to new babies in the spring and another good year. We were all very pleased that our numbers at the shows in 2009 were about the same, in spite of the economy. Let’s hope for similar or improved results for 2010. We have five new stewards who were approved at the convention. Look for their names in our listings, and I hope you all make them feel welcomed. If anyone would like information about becoming a steward, please contact me, and I will help you get started. There is a need for stewards in all our Areas. 2010 has got to be a better year for us all. The

economy is starting to turn around for the better. Convention was a good example of what this world needs: people coming together for the betterment of their organization. We were able to sit and talk about issues that need to be solved and by listening to both sides, came up with working solutions. I hope that we all can continue to do this in the future. It can only make our world a better place. I hope to see a lot of you this show season, and if there are questions for or about the stewards, don’t hesitate to ask. v

Convention Highlights 2009 National Convention

A. H. Roberts

of M&D Printing, long-time printer of The Journal. Attendees got to take a VIP back-stage tour before the dinner and show and saw the ponies donated to Arabian Nights and its programs in the last year.

Sun, fun and small equine business in Florida marked the most recent annual meeting for Shetland and Miniature enthusiasts. Kissimmee, FL, was the site of ASPC/AMHR/ASPR’s 2009 National Convention. On November 4-7, members conducted the business of rulemaking and program management, making the additions or changes that guide our organization and its offerings. And, they enjoyed good company, a special horse-related activity courtesy of one of the organization long-time business partners, great tourist options and some fun times along the way. The convention this year was organized and planned by Ruthanne Cimiotta, her son Rusty and Gerry Morris. They were assisted by other helpful members from Area 3. Overall, it was a nice convention with some good discussions and plenty of opportunity to socialize or take in the local sites. Despite a still-tough economy, attendance was strong. Our members seem to take the chance to contribute to the running of this organization seriously. The meetings, banquet and Hall of Fame breakfasts were well attended.

• Meetings were held Thursday, Friday & Saturday. Meetings covered much business, and members were thoughtful and passionate in their discussions. Refer to the meeting minute highlights elsewhere in this issue for details. • The convention again included clinics for stewards and judges.

• USEF generously sponsored two luncheons at convention. • The annual banquet on Friday night featured a good buffet and the presentation of many awards.

• This year’s Trainers Auction offered some great items along with fun and memorable moments! Proceeds are used by the Trainers Committee to fund special awards for the organization’s youth and amateur. Although the total was down, enthusiasm was high and funds were still taken in for those great youth trophies.

• Many attendees took advantage of the local tourist spots and offerings. With a huge variety of theme parks and other tourist activities close by, there was plenty to do. Members visited the parks, took airboat rides, visited local equine establishments and more.

• We said good-bye to 2009’s outgoing Senior Royalty: Queen Shaylan Ennis and Ambassador Corey Luchetta. The 2010 senior royalty were introduced during Friday night’s banquet. Congratulations to this year’s Queen Ali Olander and Ambassador Matthew Wilson. We look forward to meeting and working with you in 2010.

• One of the highlights for many was the fun trip on Thursday night to Arabian Nights. Members experienced this free of charge thanks to the sponsorship

• Awards presented included the most recent Horses and Ponies of the Year, a People Hall of Fame honor for Area VII Director Jim Curry and several youth awards. • Members of the royalty helped with the presentation of the Hall of Fame plaques and the other awards given out on Saturday. Hundreds of Shetlands and Miniatures were inducted into the Hall of Fame on Saturday following a nice breakfast. • Officers for ASPC/AMHR/ASPR for 2010 are: Larry Parnell, president; Patrick Sanders, first vicepresident; and Dennis O’Keefe, second vice president. 164

• Winners of the Sue Price Memorial Creativity were announced and the entries were on display. v

In fall, MHCO wrapped up many fall fair shows offering Miniature Horse classes for all levels of exhibitors and their horses. The last two of the four MHCO 2009 club point shows were held in September with better weather than in recent years. At the AMHR Nationals, several MHCO members (Kim, Garnet and Nicolas Barnsdale; MaryAnn Bartkewich; Pam Christopher; Tracy Conrad; Devon Glodziak; Dennis, Angela & Tanner Merner; John & Amelia Murray; Jim Newman; Lori Rafter; Linda Reinders; Laura Tennill; Nigel Watterworth) had horses showing or were helping others. A number of their fellow MHCO members cheered them on from home by watching the live Internet broadcast that was available. The MHCO Annual Awards Banquet and Fall General Membership Meeting was held October 25 at the beautiful Guelph Country Club in Guelph, Ontario. Some highlights of the awards were Fellowship Award - Kelly Doherty; Sportsmanship Award - Lisa Krick; Horsemanship Award - Carolyn Aarup; High Point Junior Handler - Laura Shaver; High Point Youth Handler - Janice Zijlstra; High Point Performance Horse - JEM Nite Dancer; and High Point Halter Horse - Magic Mans Challengar. Also it was announced that our OEF People’s Choice Volunteer of the Year award recipient was Kelly Doherty. Check the YEAR END AWARDS page of our MHCO website www.mhco.ca to see which members/horses received Grand and Reserve Champion trophies for each class of the 2009 MHCO Point Show series (pictures of some of the award recipients are also posted there, photos courtesy of Rob Green). The MHCO welcomed two new directors: Janette Wagner and Carolyn Savage. Memberships continue to grow with the club now proudly boasting a current membership of nearly 200 individual, family or farm members. At the meeting, we also discussed plans for future MHCO events including the new Area show as well as our regular mid-winter social, spring clinic and club shows. The February 2010 Social will include a seminar on Miniature Horse related topics (clinic date and specific topics were not available at the time of this column’s deadline). Details on these events and others are on the CALENDAR page on the MHCO website. In November 2009 MHCO participated in The Royal’s Spirit of the Horse display once again. The Royal Winter Fair held in Toronto, Ontario, allowed the MHCO to show thousands of people what Miniatures are all about via an informational booth and numerous demonstrations in the breed show ring. The club’s booth was manned throughout the full three days by MHCO members Nancy and Shawntelle Campbell and their Miniature mare, “Erica’s Shez Buckin Awesome”. They were joined for some of those days by fellow members Carolyn and Heather Aarup. The club would like to thank other MHCO members who dropped by

MHCO, cont. from p. 178 and helped out at the booth for various periods of time (Tracy Sammons, Linda Reinders & friend Matt, Michelle Courtemanche and former member, Eve Dexter). As this article went into production, initial plans for our new Area Sanctioned show were well underway. Although Ernie & Pat Zammit stepped down from the sanctioned show committee, the show will go on as members Pam Christopher and Michelle Courtemanche have offered to co-chair this committee. The MHCO would like to thank Ernie & Pat for their excellent work on the 2009 Classics Sanctioned show as well as all the previous years’ Classics shows. They were the initiators of this wonderful show a number of years ago and encouraged the MHCO to continue this legacy by heading the Classics Show Committee each year. Details on our shows and other MHCO events are also posted on the MHCO website’s CALENDAR page. MHCO’s Annual Website Photo Contest will be coming up soon! Members can chase away those winter blahs by submitting a photo. Anyone is eligible to vote for the contest photos. Contest rules are posted on the MHCO website. For further details on the Miniature Horse Club of Ontario, please visit the MHCO website at: www.mhco.ca and remember new members are always welcome! Wishing everyone wonderful holiday season!

IOWA

MINIATURE HORSE CLUB # 32072

The Iowa club had a busy 2009. The club presented three different clinics throughout the first six months of the year and held an AMHR show. There was plenty of activity later in the year as well! At the January ‘09 meeting, we held a clinic in Ames at The Pizza Ranch restaurant. Dr. Rebecca Jepsen discussed everyday horse care, vaccinations and worming and also touched base on reproduction. There was also a question and answer session. The Journal December ‘09/January ‘10

182

The March meeting was held at the home of Brian and Pam Crise with 40 people attending. Breakfast included rolls and coffee with pizza for lunch. Since it was a beautiful spring, some of the clinic was held outdoors. The first speaker was Dr. Christine Woodford from Cedar Rapids, IA, who owns Vips and does chiropractic and acupuncture work. She did a demonstration on one of the Crises’ horses, and it was amazing to see the noticeable change in flexibility with one adjustment and an acupuncture treatment. The second speaker was Emily Cummins of Purina Feeds. She talked about existing and new Purina products. Additionally she analyzed the weight of a few horses, answered questions and gave attendees a bag of horse treats. The third speaker was Renee Bush from Claybury Miniatures who demonstrated some training methods to use for aids while training halter horses. She also had a question and answer session. A May clinic was held at the home of Larry and Lavonne Parks in LeGrand, IA, with more than 70 people attending. The first part of the clinic focused on driving. The speaker was Mike Herron, who discussed the driving horse from start to finish, did some demonstrations and then answered questions. His tack trailer was available for anyone who wanted to shop. The second speakers were Lavonne Parks and Pam Crise who did a clipping demonstration. Those that were unfamiliar with clipping were able to get their feet wet. We appreciate that members opened their homes and provided the clinic opportunities. It was nice to see some many new faces. In July, the club held an AMHR show at the Iowa State Fairgrounds. What an amazing show it was! We hosted 173 horses. Each morning, rolls, coffee, and juice were served while there were deli sandwiches, potato salad, cookies, and drinks for lunch on Saturday with some leftover for Sunday. THANK YOU to all the wonderful exhibitors; we couldn’t have done it without you.

1993, when the club started. Marjorie’s commitment to this club and its members has been extraordinary and all of her hard work has been very much appreciated by the entire membership. Another of our hardest working members needs to be honored at this time as well. Virginia Flint (Capricorn) has spent many years supporting the Valley Sierra Club and its members. Since our earliest beginnings, she managed most of our shows with accuracy, dedication and expertise. Additionally, Virginia always served tirelessly on our board as either Treasurer, Secretary or Director. She even served the ASPC/AMHR as a national Area VII Director. Last fall, she suffered a fall and more broken bones but we hope she’s mending. One of our most active members presently is Vicki Bast. She is always participating in parades such as the Ione Homecoming Parade and the Linden Cherry Festival Parade. Dressed in grass skirts and leis to match the Hawaiian theme (including the horses!), Bast’s group won First Place for “Best Family Group” at the Ione Parade. On September 12th, Kim and Steve Sterchi (Sierra Ranch) put on their annual Production Sale and Informational Seminar. This year, Kim, who is a licensed AMHA, ASPC and AMHR judge, gave the seminar on foaling out mares successfully and what one has to do to always get live foals. Kim’s mares delivered 25 healthy foals in 2009, without a single loss and got 13 fillies and 12 colts. The Sterchi’s very festive day started out at 9:00, with coffee and danish. Then came the production sale where the foals were all professionally presented individually, bathed, clipped and well-trained in Kim’s huge, well-groomed arena. At noon, fantastic food was served. Finally, the day ended with Kim’s very useful and extremely interesting seminar on foaling. Penny Radulovich (Radulovich Farms) has concentrated on appaloosas in recent years by breeding most of her mares to her beautiful little appaloosa stallion, “Tomahawks Royal Honeybear”. He is throwing a very high percentage of appaloosa foals and Penny is really pleased with their quality as well. Well known Judge, Trainer, Breeder and ASPC/AMHR Director, Jim Curry (JC Training Center) has been selling many of his best horses this year and most are double registered in ASPC as well as in AMHR. If you are looking for a new high-quality Miniature or Shetland, giving Jim a call might be your very best option. He can be reached by emailing him at jctrainingctr@aol.com or by calling him at (209) 3695909. Jim’s unusually-marked and very beautiful overo stallion, Royal Splish Splash, is a sight to see! Jim had a heart attack over the winter so we hope he is soon well again. Remember, Valley Sierra members, to send me your news. You can always reach me at barbn@hnet.us or by calling me at (530) 622-1040. v

OBITUARIES

Lewis G. “Lew” Reese, former National Director from Area 6 and past vice-president of the American Shetland Pony Club passed away June 29, 2009, just eleven days short of his 80th birthday. Lew was raised on his parents’ Guernsey dairy cattle farm near the tiny German community of Stringtown near Creston, IA, on the old Mormon trail. He exhibited his family’s prize Guernsey cattle to numerous state and national honors. While a junior in high school, Lew got his pilot’s license. At the time, he was the youngest person in Iowa to receive a pilot’s license. Lew served in the U.S. Army in the Korean conflict with the 25th Infantry Division for 18 months and was honorably discharged as a sergeant first class in 1954. According to noted pony historian Warren Hansen, Reece was one of the most patriotic people Hansen ever met. Lew got into the registered Shetland Pony business in the early 60s. He got his start showing ponies with the late Lee Irvin, Happy Valley Pony Farm, Bloomfield, IA. Most noteworthy were the matched pair Happy Valley’s Red Crescent Challenger and Happy Valley’s Red Crescent Chancellor. He soon earned the reputation as an amateur who could show against the professionals and win. In addition to the national offices he held, Lew was president of the Iowa All-Pony Association during this time when he was starting his Stringtown Pony Farm. That farm’s motto was “The Showring Is Our Showcase. We’re not poor losers; we just love to win.” Lew’s signature method of showing was to utter a loud “war hoop” and throw his hat into the grandstand when winning a championship. As competitive as he was, he could be the first to congratulate a competitor who beat him. In 1965, Lew purchased three ponies that would determine his legacy in the pony business. From the late Gene Carstens of Ramble Ridge Stable, Davenport, IA, he purchased Larigo’s Little Jewel, Bannerette of Ramble Ridge and Ramble Ridge Rocket. Larigo’s Little Jewel was a former national Futurity harness champion who had a great harness career in Area 6. Bannerette of Ramble Ridge was a two-time national grand champion mare, winning the over division at Congress in 1966 and 1967. She was shown in 1966 by the late John Shea. Long-time Congress atten-

The Journal December ‘09/January ‘10

dees still remember Bannerette as one of the most beautiful mares they ever saw. Ramble Ridge Rocket is a well-known pony in the ASPC. He was a three-time national champion as well as a historically significant breeding stallion. He first won the over championship at Congress in 1967 as a two-year-old and repeated in 1969, the last year the Congress was held at the Iowa State Fair. Rocket captured his third Congress grand title at the Ohio State Fair and retired the challenge trophy endowed by A.C. Buehler, owner of Fernwood Farm, who had a previous three-time Congress champion. Lew had likenesses of Rocket and Bannerette etched on his tombstone. Hansen wrote, “Lew always put 150% effort in everything he did and despite many ups and downs in life remained an eternal optimist. He was inducted into the ASPC/AMHR People Hall of Fame in 2006. He really treasured the award which meant a lot to him.”

Jaime Janine Norman-Sheldon - January 29, 1976 – June 30, 2009. Jaime’s family sent the following tribute for her: “On June 30th, the world lost one of the brightest smiles there ever was. You may remember seeing Jaime Norman in the show ring in the 80s and 90s. Jaime was the daughter of Barb and Nolan Norman of former WINNERS CIRCLE RANCH in Petaluma, CA, one of the premier Miniature Horse ranches at the time. The noted horse Winners Circle Adonis was produced by Winners Circle Ranch where Jaime grew up. “Jaime grew up raising and showing Miniature Horses and riding and showing large horses as well. She showed Minis all over, even in France. “Jaime went on to college and became a visual effects producer in the film industry. She worked on such films as ‘SPACE JAM’ and the last was THE SPIRIT, with many in between. “Jaime met Eric Sheldon in 2001 and they married in 2007, at which time Jaime was being groomed to take over the running of her grandfather Ray Kaliski’s apartment complex. “In 2009 Jaime and Eric found out they were to be parents. Due in September, Jaime was excited and spent time getting ready for their first child. “On June 16th at 29 weeks pregnant, Jaime went to the hospital with a sore throat, which progressed to respiratory distress and was diagnosed with pneumonia. Doctors soon found their diagnosis to be wrong and found Jaime to have Swine Flu. The doctors knew that they needed to treat Jaime aggressively and therefore performed a C-Section and delivered her premature baby boy, whom Eric named Jack Mathew Sheldon. “Unfortunately, Jaime passed away on June 30th to 190


this devastating disease. “Baby Jack is doing fine and was released from the hospital to go home with his daddy. “Jaime will be missed by many, her family, many friends and co workers.”

He was drafted into the U.S. Army and served overseas in the Korean Conflict. In 1953, he married Edna Mae Martin. She passed away in 1963. In 1964, he married Carolyn M. Morey who proceded him in death. Roberts worked most of his life for a local feed mill and grain elevator, first as a truck driver and later in the mill itself. He was a former member of the American Legion. Roberts was a long-time American Shetland Pony enthusiast and member of the American Shetland Pony Club as well as many local pony clubs. He and Carolyn founded Roberts Family Ponies in the 1960s. He studied bloodlines and worked to establish a quality breeding program of Modern American Shetlands. RFP-bred Shetlands have captured numerous National and World Grand Championships, Futurity Championships, All Star Titles and Hall of Fame merits. Some of his noted homebreds include: RFP 6/8 Time, RFP Time For Love, RFP River of Time, RFP It’s About Time, RFP Subject to Change, RFP Time To Kill and RFP The Time Has Come. He was proudest of the get of sire and produce of dam titles won by these national champion ponies and the special awards won by his children and grandchildren. All of his children and several of his grand children remain active breeding and showing Modern American Shetlands. Roberts is survived by son and daughter-in-law Shawn & Gena Roberts, Robinson; daughters and sonsin-law Denise & Richard Burton of Newton and Amy and James Clark of Dekalb; daughter Melissa Roberts of Charleston; five grandchildren Scott (wife Lindsey) & Seth (wife Annie) Burton, Newton, Torrie Roberts, Robinson, and Katie & Maddie Clark, Dekalb; greatgrandson Alan Burton and Gavin Ferenbacher, Newton. Memorials may be made to the Carolyn and Harold Roberts/RFP Memorial Fund supporting the youth or royalty programs of the American Shetland Pony Club, Inc, and sent in care of the CMR Memorial, 7965 Gurler Rd., Dekalb, IL 60115.

Judson J Hodges, age 90 of Buckhannon, WV, died on Thursday July 9, 2009, at Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital in Weston, WV. He was born October 17, 1918, in Upshur County, WV, a son of the late Judson T and Rosella Post Hodges. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by two brothers, one sister and a partner, Mary Glenn Bell. He is survived by on son, James J Hodges of Fairfax, VA, and ex-wife, Juanita Hodges of Keyser, WV. Mr. Hodges was a member of the Mt Lebanon United Methodist Church of Buckhannon, a member of the VFW Post # 3663 and Franklin Lodge #7 AF & AM. He was inducted in the Upshur County Athletic Hall of Fame and the Potomac State College Athletic Hall of Fame, where he worked as an assistant basketball and football coach from 1946-1951. He was a FBI Agent for 22 years, served as the Assistant to the Director and retired as a Supervisor. He served in the US Army Air Force during WWII where he attained the rank of Major. He was instrumental in establishing the Miniature Horse in the US. Mr. Hodges purchased his first Miniature in the late 1950s when he was living in Virginia. He would regularly drive a team of Miniatures in local parades. He would attend Miniature Horse auctions in WV and PA, and he was a regular at the South Lawn Stables Miniature Horse Sale in Greencastle, PA. Mr. Hodges would buy horses he liked by looking at their conformation first; he was not much on looking at pedigrees of the horse. But the horses he would end up buying by just going on conformation usually had exceptional pedigrees. Mr. Hodges never personally had shown his horse but when his clients that bought from him showed the horses he had bred, they didn’t let their new owners down. He produced Champion and Reserve Champion miniatures and some of his horses also went to achieve AMHA Top Ten Titles. Mr. Hodges will be greatly missed by anyone that had known him.

Harold Dale Roberts. Willow Hill, passed away Tuesday, September 8, at the Roudebush VA Hospital in Indianapolis following a battle with cancer. He was 81. Mr. Roberts was born March 14, 1928, and was the son of Floyd and Ida (Miller) Roberts. He grew up around Willow Hill, IL, and lived there most of his life.

James was united in marriage on January 5, 1963 in Maywood, IL, to the former Eloise Sefranek, and they spent the next 46 happy years together. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle who will be deeply missed by his family and friends. Mr. Wheeler served his country proudly as a member of the United States Army. James was the owner and operator of Wheeler Home Specialist Inc. He was civic minded and was very active in serving the communities where he lived. James was a former member of the Warrenville Town Council and the Cont. p. 205
