Maggie Finn

Maggie currently attends Saline High School, in Saline, MI. She enjoys showing the all-around classes, but not normally trail. Maggie has been riding and showing horses ever since she was eight years old. She works with her county 4-H and helps the local kids with their shows. She also used to run cross country, but discontinued when it interfered with showing. Finn commented, “I started out doing 4-H shows when I was 8 with a super bratty Mustang pony that my grandparents bought me. Then when I was 11, we sold him after he threw me off and broke my arm and knocked me out. Next my grandparents bought me a grey paint named Casper who I competed successfully on at local open shows. Now I have Lainey, who I got when I was fourteen. She was my early Christmas present. She and I work better together than I have with any other horse. She is smarter and more agile than any horse I have ever ridden and is always keeping up with me and looking for my next step. We read each other and communicate on a different level.” Maggie achieved many of her goals in the 2016 show season. She was third in Novice Youth 14-18 Showmanship at the Quarter Horse Congress, as well as first in the national ranking in Rookie Horsemanship and Rookie Western Pleasure. She also won MQHA Rookie All Around and Novice Youth 14-18 All Around. Some of her goals for 2017 include attending the Novice Championships, and the AQHYA World and the Congress. Her future goal is to ride on Auburn University’s NCEA Horsemanship Team. www.MIQuarterHorse.com

MQHA Happy April MQHA – We did it! We got through the harsh winter, and made it to the other side! Our first show is almost upon us - I hope to see everyone get to the MQHA Easter EggStravaganza safe and sound! I’ve seen numerous competitors working just as hard over the winter months as they do over the summer. I’ve heard of multiple individuals forging new partnerships with new horses, and I’m excited to see those flourish alongside erupting new fashions in the arena. I hope you got the chance to attend the MQHA Annual February Tack Sale, and the Michigan Horse Council’s Stallion Expo. Both events bursting with equipment, clothes, and even puppies for sale. As always, there was a wealth of knowledge to be learned at the Stallion Expo, and I was happy to speak with several groups that passed by, asking about AQHA and MQHA. I even had one individual ask me questions where I had to tap into the endless AQHA Rulebook facts that any Queen needs to know. While it’s been a quiet few months over the winter, the spring has already begun sprouting up busier times - de-winterizing the horse trailer, cleaning up tack, getting in last minute workouts for both our horses and ourselves. I’ll be seeing many of you at our first set of spring shows, promoting MQHA’s Queen contest! It’s only a couple of months away, so mark your calendars! The Queen needs to have a thorough understanding of the AQHA Rulebook, and to practice as many interview questions with others as possible. This year’s contest will be held at the MQHA Harbor Classic show at the beginning of July. Another event to keep an eye out for is our Princess contest! The Jr. Princess is for girls ages 4-8 years old, and the Princess contest is for girls ages 9-13 years old. This will be the 5th year that we will hold the Princess contest, and our current Princess’ boots will be hard to fill. I look forward to meeting all the candidates in July, so I hope you’ve been practicing with your stick horses! Thank you to each and everyone of the MQHA Queen sponsor’s, who keep this contest going! Without you, I wouldn’t be able to proudly represent and promote our association. Congratulations to the newly elected officers of MQHA, and a huge thank you to the MQHA Office for keeping things running as smoothly as possible for everyone. I look forward to seeing everyone this summer, and I wish all of you the best to any upcoming endeavors. Take care, I’ll see you soon! Best Wishes, Andrea

Thank You All!

MQHA We have an exciting year ahead of us and your 2017 Board of Directors is busy working on ways to make the horse shows even better for all our exhibitors! Here in Michigan, we are limited with very few venues that will accommodate horse shows as large some of the Michigan Quarter Horse shows. As you are aware, some of our events will sell over 400 stalls and accommodations will sell out at our three largest events; the Easter show, the Harbor Classic and the Michigan Quarter Horse Breeders’ Futurity/Great Lakes Classic. While the MSU Pavilion is not ideal, we are fortunate to have it for two of the “big three” shows. We’ve all experienced showing without a roof over our heads and know that it can be less than perfect. The footing issues in Allegan forced the move to Midland where at least we have covered pens, enough stalls and good camping facilities. Rest assured, we have explored the various show grounds that are available and will continue to do so. If anyone knows of a place we should look at please let us know. We are always open to suggestions. Currently, we offer a variety of classes for all age groups and skill levels. We get multiple requests to add more classes and to add more events. We believe we will be doing a disservice to the shows if we add anything more, without removing something. There are only so many hours in a day. Please know that we do take the requests seriously and consider outreach important. Last and of equal importance, I’d like to thank all our sponsors who dig into their pockets time and time again to support the continued growth of our association. This is especially true of The Toledo Ticket Company. Please be sure to reach out to Tom Carter and thank him for his continued support of MQHA. Their website has all of the items that they offer if you ever have a printing need. Check out www.toledoticket.com! Happy Spring! MQHA President, Jacque Moody www.MIQuarterHorse.com

MQHA MICHIGAN QUARTER HORSE ASSOCIATION ANNUAL OPEN MEMBERSHIP MEETING January 9, 2016 President Tiffany Weitzel called a meeting of the MQHA Board of Directors to order at 9:08 a.m. at the Ramada Lansing and Conference Center in Lansing, MI. The following Directors and staff were present: Chris Baldwin, Trevor Barnes, Meggen Baynes, Kelly Chapman, Kathy Christensen, Taylor Fabus, Jill Finley, Sasha Glover, Monty Montgomery, Jacque Moody, Chris Perniciaro, Mike Sinko, Cathy Thaler, Nicole Veldhoff, Morgan Warda, Tiffany Weitzel and Kris Woroniecki. Excused were: Warren English, Megan Hirschman, Bob Milks, Tom Powers and Debbie Wadds. Also in attendance were about 15 guests. AGENDA: Kathy Christensen made a motion to approve the agenda as presented. Morgan Warda seconded the motion. Motion passed with none opposed. MINUTES: Cathy Thaler made a motion to accept the January 11, 2015 Annual Membership meeting minutes. Kathy Christensen seconded the motion. Motion passed with none opposed. Trevor Barnes made a motion to accept the December 8, 2015 Special Membership meeting minutes. Jill Finley seconded the motion. Motion passed with none opposed. FINANCIAL REPORT: Kris Woroniecki presented the tentative financial statement for the period ending December, 2015. The total assets of the Association as of December 31, 2015, are listed at $316,146.67; the total liabilities at $106,423.45 and the total members' equity is listed at $209,723.22. The net income as of the end of December is listed at $30,050.94 compared to $25,110.62 for the same period in 2014. Kris then explained that the financial report will change slightly when the remainder of the year end awards bills are adjusted. The final statement should be available by the February meeting. COMMITTEE REPORTS AWARDS: Monty Montgomery stated that the committee increased the budget for year end awards by $8,000, spending just over $30,000. The high point saddles were upgraded which accounted for some of the increase. Additional classes were offered in 2015 also creating some additional expense. Credits for show fees through the ARC program amounted to about $2500. CONVENTION: Submitted prior to the meeting by Debbie Wadds, Convention Chair Convention committee - Most numbers we www.MIQuarterHorse.com

won't have until Sunday. We have 277 dinners sold and 47 room reservations. Last year we had 240 dinners sold and served 237 meals. Here are last year's numbers: Income from dinner $6482 Income from auction revenue $1365 Total income $7847 Less total expense $7955.96 Net loss $108.96 All systems are go for Convention! Thanks! EASTER SHOW: Monty Montgomery explained that the format of the show changed for 2015 with the elimination of the February horse show. The number of judges changed from four to six. Due to this, the stalls, camping and sponsorship numbers increased substantially. The show ended with a profit of about $31,000. Of this money, over $5,000 was given to the youth association. For 2016, the showbill format will change drastically. The committee continues to try to offer the classes the exhibitors are asking for while trying to complete the schedule in a timely manner. The halter and showmanship will be run in one day with six judges. The schedule may need to be amended again, but they feel that it is worth a chance. FINANCE COMMITTEE: Report submitted by Warren English Jr This is the financial report for the year 2015 Profit and Loss Income was up 8% with expenses up 7% over 2014. Income increases largely due to increases in show revenue and fundraising. Expense increases due to increase in show expenses. This will be the 8th year that we have seen an increase in income and 8% is a very solid number. Balance Sheet Total Assets of $316,146.67 with savings at $271,352.26 which is an increase to savings of $29,056.80 over last year. Again 8th year in a row that we have added to our savings. This amount would be about 2.5 years of expense coverage if we had no income at all. Needless to say, most organizations would be happy with 90 days and GASB recommends a minimum 60 days for all nonprofit associations. Total Liabilities were $106,423.45 which is up $6,455.62 largely due to the SSS which shows an increase in this area. Comparison of 2015 to Budget Income was up compared to budget by 11.68%. Expense was up compared to budget by 11.07%. The membership should be very happy with the budget work that Kris has done over the years. To be this consistent with a budget for a nonprofit is a testament to her organization.

In closing the association is in excellent financial shape! As I will be retiring from the board, I would like to express how great an asset Kris is to this association and I would be remiss for not acknowledging her for how well MQHA is run. Best Regards, and see you at the shows FUTURITY: Jacque Moody explained that the Futurity Committee and the Stallion Service Sale Committee are responsible for the Futurity and Great Lakes Show held in September. She reported that the Futurity and Show financially held its own again this year showing a profit of about $11,500 vs. $11,704 from last year. Our income stayed the same as did our expenses. We sold 387 stalls this year vs. 382 in 2014; due to the increase in additional electric and water available on the concrete behind the pavilion, we had 12 more camping spots 103 vs. 91. Our entries increased from 2212 to 2294. Her 2015 goal was to try and make the show run smoother while giving the recognition to the exhibitors before they left the arena. She tried to accomplish a better and safer flow of horses in and out of the show ring by lining up the class that just finished against the wall by the entry gate and allowing the next class to enter the ring during which time the class that just finished was given recognition by one judge before they left the ring. The exhibitor party was pizza and salad which everyone seems to enjoy, possibly because it allows them to come in, grab a plate and leave in between their classes. The youth held a soup fundraiser this year and while it didn't make a lot of money, the exhibitors liked it and it all goes to helping the kids- thanks Sasha for working with the Youth to host this event. Jacque's goal for 2016 is to work on exhibitor experience. The Futurity is MQHA's flagship event and trainers, with their horses and exhibitors, come from near and far to be part of this event each year. HALL OF FAME: Submitted by Jill Finley, Hall of Fame Chair I would like to thank those members of the committee and those that stepped up to help choose the inductees for this year, as I was unable to fulfill my commitment. Those members being, but not limited to Tiffany Weitzel, Kris Woroniecki, Jacque Moody, Tom Powers, and Kevin Cubitt. I would also like to extend a special “Thank You” to Ken and Mary Ellen Mumy for their continued support and knowledge.

Thank you to all of you for all you have done to select these nominees, and for all the time and MQHA Journal • April 2017 • 38


MQHA energy you have spent doing research and preparation in my absence. The 2016 inductees were: George and Sandra McCrumb and Mr. Tabano Bay. HARBOR CLASSIC: Submitted by Mike Sinko, Co-Chair I am happy to report that this show was a success again this year with profits up $16,182.00. Stalls, camping and entries were up again. I want to give credit to the MQHA office staff, and MQHA Board for helping to make this a successful show. I can't forget Marcia Hansen and her great crew for everything they do every year for this show. Special thanks to Mr. Jeff West for helping me to put rigs in their proper place and helping keep count on campers throughout the week. It takes a lot of effort on behalf of everyone involved to make it as smooth transition as possible. I felt we met the goals very well. HARVEST CLASSIC: Submitted by Meggen Baynes, Harvest Classic Committee, Chair The Harvest Classic Committee started the year by creating 4 goals which included: 1. Increase stall revenue by 1.5% 2. Decrease awards expense by 5% 3. Increase class entry fee revenue by 2.5% 4. Discuss doing some sort of crock-Pot/Chili cook-off during the show to increase income for the Awards Committee. The committee was successful in meeting 2 of the 4 goals that were set. Stall revenue was increased by 25% and class entry fee revenue increased by 32%. Net income increased from $7,689.87 in 2014 to $14,135.92 in 2015. The committee did not meet the goal of decreasing the awards expense as additional classes and high points were added that were not offered in 2014. The awards expense increased by 18%. The committee attempted to hold a Chili Cook-off with no success. For 2016, the committee will set similar goals that work towards increasing revenue and entries, while cutting costs. The committee will not attempt to hold another Cook-Off event in 2016 but perhaps look at offering a free dinner, snacks or something similar for exhibitor appreciation to close out the 2016 MQHA show season. JOURNAL/WEBSITE: Journal, Website and Social Media Committee report submitted by Kathy Christensen, Chair In January of 2015 the official MQHA Facebook page had 1905 likes and was averaging a reach of 1284 individuals monthly. In January of 2016, the official MQHA Facebook page has www.MIQuarterHorse.com

2479 likes reaching an average of 1330 individuals weekly and the week of 12-2715/1-2-16 reached 1666 people. The MQHA Marketplace in January of 2015 had 4374 members. In January of 2016 now has 5524 members. The FB page has increasingly become a great way to communicate with the membership items like showbills, patterns, forms and other important information. The FB page “reaches” improve and increase significantly when pictures of members and youth are posted. The committee members will, in the coming year, continue to share pictures from shows and post all necessary information for the membership. The MQHA Marketplace continues to grow in members and postings with few reported problems. This site is now exclusively for the buying and selling of equine related items and services. This site reaches across all horse breeds and offers a wide variety of items as well and many horses for sale. The new MQHA website was launched in August of 2015. Again, a huge “Thank You” to Katie Krcmarik, website designer, and Cindy Couturier, Journal Editor for their countless hours of work in getting this project completed! Also, I would like to thank the Journal, Website, Social Media Committee members for their time in reviewing the website pages prior to launch. This took much of their time; their insight and suggestions were wonderful and helpful. Thank you to Cathy Thaler, Meggen Baynes, and Jill Finley. The General Store page is still not complete. I will work with Chris Frantz in selecting MQHA brand items to be shown and offered for sale. On September 10, 2015, Cindy Couturier presented to the Journal & Website committee options for saving, in the printing of the MQHA Journal. She obtained quotes from Grand Blanc Printing, Johnson Press, and our current printer, McKay Press. The committee reviewed the quotes and chose to contract with Grand Blanc Printing. All future Journals will print 1000 copies; Cindy has said we can use the additional copies for the March Expo and other MQHA events. Previously, we received 750 copies with McKay Press. This change to Grand Blanc Printing will save MQHA approximately $2.45 per Journal in printing expenses. This went into effect for the October, 2015 issue. MEMBERSHIP/PUBLICITY: Report submitted by Morgan McCarthy Warda, Chair In 2015 the membership promotion committee attended open shows to promote AQHA/ MQHA, generate new members, and encourage their participation in MQHA. We also had hand towels made for exhibitors at the last

horse show as a free 'thank you' gift to exhibitors. As an overview, our goal was to increase membership by 5% in the year 2015. At this time, I do not have specific numbers to report. I want to bring to the board's attention that pursuing new membership has not been successful or well received. Most people said that the benefits were not enough. From personal experience, I know what we offer as an association is a wonderful and competitive show experience but I think there needs to be a different approach to gaining new members (both MQHA and MQHYA). I have often heard that “your customers are your best advertisement.” I believe we need to refocus our attention, money and efforts back to our existing members and let them speak for us. As they travel and show elsewhere, good comments and promotion of their home association is key. I have seen from personal experience how significant word-of-mouth is to an association's credibility. This will come with a willingness from our board to participate in new activities, more gatherings, more opportunities for us to show our members that they come first. NOMINATIONS: Submitted by Bob Milks, Chair Nomination Committee Report. I apologize and regret that I cannot make the banquet or meetings this year. This year saw a lot of time and work with other committees to arrive at many successful strides in progress for the association. Although we have yet to secure a person for the finance committee, I believe our elections could well produce such a person. After advertising in the journal, our nominations did increase in numbers to include existing board members for re-election, a returning former board member returning for election after a brief hiatus, and a few new members very interested and running for election. Some of them, I think, would fit very nicely in the smooth running of the board. With help from Megan Hirschman, we contacted all the people interested to provide a bio for everyone to peruse and give a wide selection to vote for. It has been a while since such interest has been shown to participate. Good luck to all nominees. NOVICE/INTRODUCTORY SHOWS: Submitted by Taylor Fabus and Trevor Barnes 1. Plan and coordinate the annual February Clinic Weekend in conjunction with the MSU Extension Specialist. Duties include, but are not limited to: a. Work with MSU Extension Specialist to secure the main clinician. In addition, work to publicize the event and gather riders interested in participating in the riding portion of the clinic. MQHA Journal • April 2017 • 39


MQHA b. Securing the classroom speakers and be there at the event to introduce speakers and help with technology or other speaker needs c. Secure volunteers to help with tack sale. (Unloading tables & day of help if needed). d. Send thank you letters to all who helped and volunteered time following event. RESULT: Event is planned for February 5-6, 2016. We've moved to a format with several different Michigan-based clinicians. This was extremely well received by the community and the rider positions filled in just 10 days. We're hoping this excitement carries over into the auditor attendance as well. We've lowered rider and auditor fees, as was suggested in the post-event survey we did in 2015. We're also bringing back the popular classroom sessions. This year we're having Designing a great trail course (this is perfect for any show manager!) with Christopher Dalton, Show Ring Fashion with Renee Holstege of Totally Outfitted Custom Show Clothes, What judges expect from show management (this is perfect for any show manager!) with Terri Delbridge (MI 4-H and AHA carded judge), Designing an effective riding lesson with MSU Equestrian Team coach Leesa Massman. We will have more details on success of the 2016 event once it's taken place. 2. Identify new & potential opportunities for engagement beyond our usual MQHA horse show participants. RESULT: MQHA continues to support Michigan 4-H activities through sponsorship of the MI 4-H Equine Educational Expo. I hope that activities like this continue, and grow, in the coming years. 3. Identify (at least) one article to be published in each MQHA journal. This article will intend to inform our readers on equine healthy issues. Industry issues, alternative equine activities, etc. Articles will be fact based and from a reputable, unbiased source. See examples below (but not limited to). a. www.eXtension.org b. MSU Extension (http://msue.anr.msu.edu) c. Outside equine organizations representing new interests d. Carded judges RESULT: Unfortunately, this slipped through the cracks in 2015. However, as I'm leaving the board, I want to be sure this doesn't slip through the cracks again. I've created a list for 2016 of articles that I hope gets shared and put into the MQHA Journal. These educational articles (from the websites listed), are accurate, timely, and from legitimate sources. I think prowww.MIQuarterHorse.com

viding this content to our membership is important, based on our goals and this committee's goals. QUEEN: Report Submitted by Kathy Christensen. The Queen's Contest was held July 3rd, at the Harbor Classic Horse Show in Ludington, Michigan. This year we did have only one candidate, and a wonderful candidate, Miss Andrea Armbruster is our 2015 Queen. Andrea is from Milan, Michigan, and a graduate of Milan High School. She is currently attending Washtenaw Community College, working towards an Associates in Liberal Arts degree. Queen sponsorship and gift value totals over $3800 this year. The Sponsor list may be seen on the website. Thank you to all the Queen sponsors, and those who so generously gave a gift to the Queen! Thank you also to Debbie Wadds for helping to get Queen sponsors and gifts. The Princess Contest was once again a HUGE hit, with many young girls competing for the opportunity to be either the 2015 Princess or JR Princess. The contestants did a horsemanship pattern using a stick horse, and answered a question from our Princess Competition Judges. I believe everyone had a great time, and every girl did get a gift/prize for attending and competing. Pictures from this event and the Queen Photo shoot may be seen on the FB page and on the new website. 2015 winners: Princess, Lillian Laney and JR Princess, Avianna Nemeth. THANK YOU to Minae Zomer and Rene' Holstege for organizing the Princess contest, it was a wonderful event and a big success. CONSTITUTION, BY-LAWS, and RULES: Submitted By Cathy Thaler, Committee Chair The Constitution, By-Laws, and Rules Committee members included Bob Milks, Jacque Moody, Tiffany Weitzel, and me. We also had help and guidance throughout the year from Ken Mumy, Dutch Guthrie, Trish Steel, and Kris Woroniecki. I would like to publicly thank you all as this task was difficult and could not have been accomplished without your patience, input, and diligence in keeping what is best for MQHA in the long-run as the goal. The Constitution, By-Laws, and Rules Committee goals for 2015: 1. To review the Constitution, By-Laws, and Rules and make recommendations to the Board and ultimately to the membership for approval. 2. To Review, rewrite, and present to the Board for approval the Association's mission and vision statements to more closely represent the Association's current and future goals. 3. To insure recommended changes meet all legal State and Federal requirements and provide the Association with documents that

meet the needs of the organization and its members in 2016 and beyond. The Committee recommended many changes to the documents...some minor changes in text, others of a significant nature. Significant changes recommended and ultimately approved at the special membership meeting on December 8, 2015 include: a. decreasing the number of directors on the board to 12, creating a more efficient and effective board size, b. creating a succession plan for board leadership to ensure continuity with short- and long-term planning and implementation of those plans, c. creating an Executive Committee of board leadership to include the president, vicepresident, vice-president elect (a new board position), and treasurer to ensure the succession plan is in place, d. separating the positions of executive secretary and treasurer to create fiscal checks and balances, e. removing the disqualification of earned points on school days toward NYATT and Youth World Team qualification, f. removing Michigan residency requirement for NYATT and Youth World Team qualification, and g. instituting a protective helmet requirement for all lead line and small fry riding classes. We did not achieve goal number two as we decided that a short- and long-term business plan must be developed in conjunction with the review of the Mission and Vision Statements to ensure we, as an organization, have a clear understanding of who we are and what we want accomplish. MQHA has changed considerably since its modest beginning 60 years ago, and we must reflect our vision for the future in those statements. I recommend that this task be led by our new Executive Committee for 2016. All proposed changes were vetted and found to meet all State and Federal requirements. We, as a committee, hope that we represented the membership well and you are satisfied with the results. SHOW APPROVAL: Submitted by Megan Hirschman, Chair The show approval meeting was set in December of 2014 to review the 2015 showbills. At that time, membership requested that we consider adding Rookie class divisions, as well as Ranch Riding where it was viable. We added both, and will continue with this in 2016. The class sizes in the Rookie division at all the shows was a huge success! Ranch Riding is MQHA Journal • April 2017 • 40


MQHA growing in popularity, and has encouraged some of the Reining riders to stay for additional classes. In the future, we will be looking for new and inventive ways to streamline our shows and maximize our class availability to our members. SUMMER SERIES: Submitted by Trevor Barnes, Chair Allegan Michigan, May 22-25, 2015 Co-Chair Cathy Thaler -had a great turn out with numbers up all the way around -up 704 entries -up 26 campers -up 54 stalls -income up $4117.22 -we tried a 50/50 raffle fundraiser to help cover awards and it was a success raising $255 -the new barn was a big hit -new ranch horse/riding class added, no youth entries but the amateurs showed their support Trevor stated that a goal the committee had was to promote the ranch riding, which they did and it was well received. They also wanted to do a survey after the show, which was not done. Trevor stated that he did get good personal feedback from people. The committee wanted to ensure that the show was profitable, which it was. He explained that his work sponsored a lot of the awards including paying for shipping so that helped overall. He is aware that there is an issue with the footing and has been told that it is being addressed by the fairgrounds. STALLION SERVICE SALE: Chris Perniciaro reminded everyone that the sale starts at noon. There are currently 97 stallions on the list. He does think that there are some big halter stallions that are not supporting Michigan anymore because of the big event in Iowa. YOUTH: Submitted by Sasha Glover, Youth President 2015 MQHYA Goals and Achievements 1. Provide easy communication between MQHYA Board of Directors and members/ guests. a. GOAL: This will be done by implementing a new email system called “Google Groups.” Members will subscribe to receive emails from an email account that will be monitored and supported by the current MQHYA president and advisor. The email account will be available for use by all current MQHYA board members and highlight upcoming events and www.MIQuarterHorse.com

opportunities. b. RESULT: MQHYA was successful in implementing the new system called Google Groups. Currently we have 67 emails on the list and have been active sending emails to those people receiving a good response to emails. This has continued for members to gain involvement and keep up to date with MQHYA happenings. 2. Use larger fundraisers to support the MQHYA and continue to do few little fundraisers and continuing to sustain our current financial stability. a. GOAL: The MQHYA will accomplish this by implementing a new sponsorship program where donors will receive incentives for their support. Doing this the MQHYA hope that we will be able to receive larger monetary donations while continuing to recognize our supporters. The MQHYA also plans on achieving this goal by hosting the youth raffle where members and guests can purchase tickets for $5.00 each to be entered in a drawing for $1,000 or $500. Last year this fundraiser was successful. The Association also plans on continuing to do a few of the smaller successful ones such as the soup fundraiser and dog races. b. RESULT: MQHYA was successful with hosting the annual cash raffle. The Association received a profit of $1,659 and a total of $2,106 pay-outs to members. One 1st place prize of $1,000 was given out as well as a second-place prize of $500.00. The Association received one sponsorship donation of $500.00. This was a step in the right direction as this program was new to the youth. The Association was also successful with the following other fundraisers…Dog Races $965.00 Profit. Soup Sale January 1 almost $1,000. Soup/Bake Sale – September $439.85, Mum Sale with 41 mums sold $317.75 paid to youth association. By also hosting the smaller fundraisers the youth Association could support both the NYATT and World Show teams. 3. Continuing to encourage youth participation. a. GOAL: Member participation is something that the youth association has continued to grow stronger in but still finds itself struggling. The association plans on continuing to encourage participation by offering incentives and providing rewards for members' participation and support. Such rewards and incentives can include hosting a year end party, providing gifts such as gift cards, and public recognition of their support and hard work. b. RESULT: By approaching youth directly this year and making a personal connection, we

were able to gain and retain youth members for events and activities. This was a growth from past years as it wasn't always the same kids doing the same activities or having responsibilities. We have a new handful of youth kids stepping up to the plate to be directors and officers because of this new strategy. NATIONAL DIRECTORS: Kelly Chapman shared the following information: 1- 2015 AQHA membership survey – 163,942 respondents. 43% of these indicated ranch use as their key area of involvement. AQHA will be adding a new ranch position in the competition division. 2 - Novice Championship update. There will be 3 novice championship shows in 2016. Oklahoma City, April 13-17. Las Vegas, April 20-24. Raleigh, May 4-8. 3 - NCAA Update. Women's equestrian status with the NCAA is secured again as an emerging sport. New schools are close to committing. 4 - AQHA Convention is March 11-14 in Las Vegas and includes a small business workshop and town hall meetings. Everyone is encouraged to attend. 5 - Lip chain rule has now been amended for 2016 to allow “lip cords” on stallions 1 year and older for open and amateur. Chris Baldwin added information regarding the novice championship: If someone qualifies in 2015 but novices out, they are still eligible to go to the novice championship in 2016. Per the discussion at the last Board meeting, the MQHA qualifying deadline will be two weeks prior to the AQHA deadline. MQHA will keep everyone informed. There was then discussion about the lack of good information coming out of AQHA and the gap between AQHA, MQHA and the customers. The gap needs to be addressed for new people coming into the association. Chris also added that the cloning lawsuit with AQHA is finally over and AQHA has prevailed. OLD BUSINESS: None NEW BUSINESS: Proposed Constitutional Rule Change In an attempt to align the MQHA Constitution with AQHA rules, the following Constitutional change is presented to the membership. MQHA – MQHYA CONSTITUTION ARTICLE XII - MICHIGAN QUARTER HORSE YOUTH ASSOCIATION SECTION 3 - MEMBERSHIP Current wording: A.

PRESIDENTS REPORT: President Moody began by reminding the Board that the transition to take the size of the Board from 21 to 12 was supposed to have taken place over a few years. With the Director resignations that were received in 2016, the Board is already down to 12. That being said, all Directors will need to be more diligent in their responsibilities. She then went on to explain that at the January meeting, the Directors were asked to sign the Statement of Board Member Responsibility. She has since revisited the document and is requesting to make a couple of updates to a document that was created in 2002 by Julie Fershtman, who was legal counsel at that time. A minor update was done to the document again in 2012. President Moody reviewed the changes with the Board. The Board signed and returned the updated documents. Jacque then went on to explain that per her recommendation, the Board voted last year to move the Treasurer title from the Executive Secretary to the Finance Director. She stated that she feels that she made a mistake with this recommendation and would like the Board to consider returning the Treasurer position to the Executive Secretary. President Moody's position is that after watching for this last year, the Executive Secretary duties have not changed and she is, in fact, the one who is working closest with the accountant and the bookkeeper. The opportunity to maintain continuity is greater if the position stays with the Executive Secretary. Megan Hirschman made motion that the Treasurer position be returned to the Executive Secretary. Mike Huntoon seconded the motion. Voting for the motion was: Baynes, Christensen, Glover, Hirschman, Huntoon, Montgomery and West. Voting against the motion were: Kirkpatrick and Perniciaro. Motion carried with a majority. Jacque stated that the subject will come back to the board for additional discussion because there may be some rules that must be voted on if they are in conflict. Jacque then stated that the Association is extremely fortunate to have Toledo Ticket as a major sponsor. This support has really benefitted MQHA in prior years and will benefit the MQHA in 2017. She finished her President's report by saying that the Association is in the midst of a lot of transition, starting with the office to the shows and to the Board. There are a lot of exciting things happening and she looks forward to working with an amazing group of dedicated, conscientious horsemen and women who all have outside jobs and now the demands of being on the Board of Directors of an evolving quarter horse association. She is hopeful that

by working together, fantastic things will happen. VICE PRESIDENT'S REPORT: Vice President Baynes stated that with the smaller Board, it is imperative that the Directors be diligent about their committees and about obtaining additional committee members outside of the Board. She reminded the Board to respond to correspondence sent. OFFICE REPORT: Executive Secretary Kris Woroniecki presented the profit and loss from the tack sale. Overall, there were 26 more spaces sold than 2016. The cost of the spaces was decreased from $65 to $60 provided they were paid by December 31. The spaces then went to $70 on January 1. The sale seemed to go well with no complaints received by the office. Kris thanked Amy Holek, Emme Lantis and Sasha Glover for help setting up and thanked the entire Jeff West family and Sasha Glover for the help tearing down all of the tables and picking up the sale area. Kris shared a thank you note from the Monroe County 4-H for the donation of a MQHA membership. COMMITTEE REPORTS AWARDS: Monty Montgomery stated that there will be a proposal for year end awards submitted to the Board at one of the next meetings. The 2016 Year End Awards seemed to be well received. CONVENTION: Submitted by Sasha Glover, Chair • Convention loss $358.19 which is close to same as last year if not a little less • 254 meals sold • Close to 300 attendance • Silent auction brought in a total of $1,335.00 with a total of 54 items donated • Thank you to the many individuals that continued to support this. A thank you also to all the Directors and individuals that assisted with the setup and organization. MQHA Convention Committee Goals 2017 1. Continue to provide workshops and events that cater to the membership wants and interests 2. Build the silent auction so that it can help us cover the costs of convention 3. Provide and work with a venue to meet the needs of both MQHA and the amenities that are suggested by the membership EASTER SHOW: Monty Montgomery reported on the status of the upcoming Easter show • Two ring stewards are contracted • One volunteer for scribing has been secured for the weekend MQHA Journal • April 2017 • 45


MQHA • Gate person is confirmed • Announcer is confirmed • Awards are being finalized • Currently have 200 stalls and 50 camping reserved • Easter Egg hunt, breakfast and pizza party are being coordinated • Toledo Ticket is creating a giant Easter bunny cut out which help promote the event • Committee will offer Toledo Ticket some space to set up a display • Toledo Ticket has committed to a $5000 sponsorship for the event FINANCE: Submitted by Megan Hirschman, Chair We will have a financial audit this year, and have signed documentation for that to begin later this spring/summer. 2017 will mark a full audit (of 2016 books) and we need to be sure to add this to our budget for next year. I ask that each committee chair review extensively their budget line items, and reflect any changes that they anticipate for 2017. We will be asking all committees to adhere strictly to the budget they have submitted, but are welcome to come to the board for requests of changes $500 or more for any show or activity (Line item changes are Committee Chair approved, the board only needs to be involved when an entire event or activity will exceed budget by $500 or more) Treasurer Goals for 2017:

a. As co-chair of the Harbor Classic, we have met, and have changed the showbill to hopefully address some of the issues with late night showing. 2. Raise overall confidence in our Board of Directors, and develop a communication strategy to increase visibility of board members. Illuminate comments from board members that reflect negatively on board productivity and positivity. 3. Create additional ways for our members to engage in social activities and networking/ family fun during horse shows. Megan did state that because the Association has made so many changes that the budget is going to be considerably effected. She implored that the Board seriously consider any expenses and that the Committee Chairs adhere tightly to their numbers until we get a better feel for how well attended the events will be this year and how the expenses are going to work out. FUNDRAISING: Submitted by Jill Finley, Chair Goals: 1) To implement fun/funny ideas to raise money during the shows. One year at futurity the youth did a pie in the face fundraiser, that was a riot and seemed to generate a lot of interest. 2) To get more involvement from the general membership and trainers at the shows, rather than just coming to show. 3) To come up with an annual fundraiser that will be a major source of funds for our organization.

2. Systemize known current risks and processes related to financial responsibility held within the MQHA Office, and provide insight/ co-endorsement where needed.

Jill asked the board about their opinion on MQHA hosting a golf outing. The board agreed it would be a good idea and that it should be held on a weekend that is not conflicting with a MQHA horse show. The Lansing area was suggested. Jill has experience in running golf outings and said that it could be a good fundraiser for the Association. The board is excited about the idea and Jill has agreed to pull together more information and come back with some additional ideas.

3. Develop calendar of key financial activity for next incoming Treasurer.

FUTURITY: Submitted by Jacque Moody, Committee Chair.

4. Review current expenditures and identify areas of potential savings.

The Futurity Committee met on Sunday after the Convention to discuss the 2016 results, income and expenses. Present was Jeff Moody, Chris Perniciaro, Mike Huntoon, Kevin Cubitt, Monty Montgomery, Stacy Montgomery, Jacque Moody and Kris Woroniecki. It was felt that the showbill seemed fine and the show flowed as well as it could taking into consideration the weather, number of classes and exhibitors.

1. Develop protocols for all show related payment processing and document those procedures a. With new show management, we will be trying several new things, including online payment processing, and pre-entry

a. Dutch Guthrie will also be supporting this area and advising when applicable 5. Review current assets and assess spending power available. MQHA Board Goals for 2017: 1. Continue to try new ways to shorten show days. www.MIQuarterHorse.com

Overall the show had a profit of about $13,000 but we have to keep in mind that the Futurity starts the year with a $12,000 deficit which has been allocated against the Futurity for many years. $1,000 per month of operating expense is allocated to the Futurity due to the amount of work needed from the office to support the entries, etc. The 2016 futurity/show had expenses of $81,988 against income of $114,837 or a profit of $32,868.67; however, when you subtract the $12,000 and extra expenses associated with the Futurity you end up with $13,517. The SSS while separate from the Futurity and Great Lakes Show has payout expenses that occur during the Futurity. Several years ago we combined the Stallion Service Sale committee which is under Chris Perniciaro and the Futurity committee, which is under me, into one committee meeting, considering the fact that you couldn't really make decisions on one without looking at the other. The 2017 goals are: to continue to build on what we have and since this is one of the 3 anchor shows for MQHA (Easter, Harbor and Futurity) and to continue to increase our income while driving down our expenses. We also recently approved the Great Lakes Show for youth qualifying and in doing so, hope to build upon our youth participating more than in the past which will help drive our numbers and our revenue. HARBOR CLASSIC: Jeff West explained that the committee had a conference call. The showbill has been changed somewhat. The committee is trying diligently to offer all of the classes that are requested and still try to complete the days at a reasonable hour so everyone can enjoy Ludington. The biggest change is that the trail will be held all in one day. There will be two arenas going with three judges in each arena. There are a few details to work through yet, but the committee is taking all suggestions from exhibitors into consideration. They are aware that there are potentially a lot of trail classes that can be shown in one day and that there will be some conflicts. A request had been received to add pleasure driving but there did not seem to be any place to add it based on the start and end times from 2016. A request had been received from the MGLQHA to hold their silent auction during the show. Discussion went back to 2016 when the board stated that MQHA shows should only offer fundraisers for MQHA. The committee feels that the show is a good place for the youth or the queen to do a fundraiser benefitting MQHA. Megan Hirschman made a motion to not allow MGLQHA to host a silent auction. Sasha Glover seconded the motion. Motion passed with none opposed. MQHA Journal • April 2017 • 46


MQHA HARVEST CLASSIC: Submitted by Rob Kirkpatrick, Chair and Meggen Baynes, Co-Chair 1. Increase profit from the 2016 show a. In 2016 our expenses were slightly higher and our numbers were down. 2. Increase stalls by 10% from last year which in turn should mean more entries. a. This could potentially be difficult as the Congress end on October 29th and the World show is the 3rd-18th of November, which is what we contribute most of the decrease from 2015-2016 to. b. Ideas to draw more people in: I. Free level up entry fees- If they show novice they can enter the corresponding youth or amateur class at no charge ii. Add NSBA dual approved classes 3. Start ON time all days. We were at least 10 minutes late each day in 2016 4. Try and manage breaks so they don't run over and allow us to restart on time, making the overall days shorter. 5. Offer a social event for exhibitors. Potato bar went over well. Potentially have chili and baked potatoes. 6. I would also like to try the stall price includes 5 bags of shavings. I think it will make things more simple. Rob Kirkpatrick stated that the showbill is being completed. JOURNAL: Submitted by Kathy Christensen, Chair Goals 1. Switch Website to Word Press format 2. Create Blog to replace Journal 3. Encourage Membership to use new services offered on website. 4. Create MQHA General Store, MQ logo items for sale 5. Continue to monitor both MQ FB pages 6. Update Website pages as necessary 7. Post pictures on FB page of show activities. 8. Create new advertising opportunities, and revenue thru the Website pages Report: Have received three bids for the website move and the blog creation. Have asked for references and examples of work done previously. Will meet with Kris to direct Cindy for the future. Next Journal will be online only. Continuing to monitor both Facebook pages. Megan Hirschman suggested that we get pricwww.MIQuarterHorse.com

ing for paying several years ahead for the domain name. Kris will look into it. MEMBERSHIP: Morgan Warda reported that she has submitted an article to AQHA which can be seen on the showing tab. The article talked about the MQHA Convention, the Harbor and Easter shows and other highlights for the association. She has also been working with gohorseshow.com to get our pages secured for 2017. She also asked for help with the MHC Expo booth. The expo is coming up soon and people are needed to volunteer. NOMINATIONS: Submitted by Jill Finley, chair Goal: To listen to membership for those that may be interested in serving on the board, or possibly just wanting to help on a committee. QUEEN: Submitted by Kathy Christensen, Chair 2017 Queen Committee goals… 1. Order buckle and crown 2. Redo Queen test 3. Contact previous sponsors 4. Pray we have a candidate for 2017 SHOW APPROVAL: Rob Kirkpatrick and Megan Hirschman explained that the mandatory show approval meeting was held as a conference call in January. All shows were represented. The committee reviewed all necessary items for MQHA approval. STALLION SERVICE SALE: Submitted by Chris Perniciaro, Chair Revenue deposited as of the end of January, 2017 is $40,605 versus $26,986 for 2016. Currently 42 stallions have sold with an additional 8 payments pending. There were a total of 94 stallions enrolled in the 2017 sale. There is currently $2000 more deposited in February. Thank you to everyone who helped including Julie Leek, Jill Finley, Mike Huntoon, Kris Woroniecki and Rachel Nicholson. The SSS committee met with the Futurity committee during convention. MSBA is considering adding a trail slot class. Chris also explained that the Buckskin Horse Association is no longer holding their auction and he is working on contacting stallion owners who donated to that. There appears to be interest from some Paint and Appaloosa stallion owners, so Chris will follow up and see if he can get additional color breed stallions into the MQHA SSA. SUMMER SERIES: Summer Series Committee Report submitted by Meggen Baynes, Chair and Morgan Warda, Co-Chair The Summer Series showbill has been set. We will have 5 judges, 3 on the first set and 2 on the second set. There will be 1 NSBA judge per

set of judges. We will hold the Over Fences classes once on Friday. Per a request, we will be holding the Pleasure Driving and it will be held on the western day. We have a concession booked. Thomas Carter of the Toledo Ticket company has graciously sponsored the Circuit Awards. McCarthy Warda Performance Horses will be sponsoring a Wine & Cheese party and Mary Wilkosz will be sponsoring a light breakfast every day of the show. EKG will be sponsoring a free beverage koozie to each exhibitor. We will be including 5 bags of bedding in the price of a stall, we hope this will lighten the load on the committee staff in delivering shavings. I am working on other sponsorship ideas to hold a social event every day of the show. Committee Goals - 1. Increase revenue by 15%. 2. Increase stall reservations by 20. 3. Increase entries by 150. 4. Provide a social event every day of the show. Meggen stated that when the Harbor Classic committee had the conference call, it was determined that there was not room to add pleasure driving, so it has been added to the Summer Series. Meggen also explained that she will deliver bedding with Kris and Rachel prior to the show. It should make the horseshow about $2000 in revenue. YOUTH: Jeff West reported that there is currently one youth with a hardship request into Michigan and two youth requesting out. The cash raffle is under way and currently 600 of the 1500 available tickets have been handed out to be sold. AQHA has added level 2 and level 3 to the Youth World Show which is going to make things more difficult on MQHA's end. He is working on a “letter of interest” for L2 and L3 to help the MQHA office staff sort through what the youth want to participate in. Jeff also discussed the service hours required. Megan Hirschman made a motion: Required community service hours for MQHA Youth cannot be utilized for any other organizations community service hour requirements. Any hours above MQHA requirements can be validated by the Youth Advisor or the MQHA office (i.e. FFH, NHS, etc). Monty Montgomery seconded the motion. Motion passed with none opposed. Jeff went on to state that Lily Atkinson and Linc Reincke are delegates for the YES Conference and if both will attend, MQHYA may need to consider increasing the financial support to help the attendees with expenses. Jeff mentioned that pleasure driving has been added to the end of the schedule for the Spartan Spectacular giving them four sets of points. He reiterated the importance of trying MQHA Journal • April 2017 • 47


MQHA to add events for the membership whenever possible. OLD BUSINESS: NEW BUSINESS: MQHA Mailing List policy - Kris Woroniecki reviewed the policy regarding the MQHA membership mailing list. Sasha Glover made a motion that all requests for the MQHA membership list must come before the board. Meggen Baynes seconded the motion. Motion passed with none opposed. This replaces the current policy from the May, 2007 minutes. The board agreed that the privacy of the membership was of the utmost concern and that the membership list will not be given out under most circumstances. Update on EKG Management – Kris Woroniecki asked if the Board was comfortable with the new stall/camping and online entry forms that were sent to them for review. She would like to give EKG permission to get them online. EKG have come to the office several times and are working on getting the accounting portion up and running but it is very time consuming. They are also working on adding the NSBA

class codes. Kris also asked the board's opinion of the proposed “EKG Verified” idea that was shared. The general consensus is that it could be a really good idea and after some of the bugs are worked through, it should make exhibitors very happy.

Welcome Spring!

February show – Meggen Baynes asked the board if there was any interest in hosting a February show. The board would be interested in exploring the option of doing it, if there was another venue that opened. She stated that Kris and Monty were going to make a run to Albion in the upcoming weeks to see the progress of that venue. She asked that they report back to the board. A motion to adjourn was made at 9:45 p.m. by unanimous consent. NEXT MEETING: The next meeting is Wednesday, March 22nd at 7:00 p.m. at the MSU Pavilion. ELECTRONIC BOARD CORRESPONDENCE: MQHA rules now allow for electronic voting when necessary. Any information voted on electronically between meetings will be recorded on the next set of minutes in this section: For up-to-date information, visit the MQHA online at: www.miquarterhorse.com

Gas Colic – Common, but Preventable! By Juliet M. Getty, Ph.D. Gas colic is the least serious form of colic. That’s the good news. The bad news is that it’s very common. So common, in fact, that it is often overlooked as “just gas,” like you might get when you eat too much pizza. However, never be complacent about gas colic because it can lead to complications such as displacement or twisting of the large colon. Truth is, if you’re feeding correctly, gas colic should not happen. And if it does, then you’re more than likely doing something wrong. Where does the gas come from? The brous portion of plants doesn’t get digested until it reaches the hindgut (cecum and large colon) where it is broken down by the resident microbial population. This process, known as fermentation, produces volatile fatty acids (to be used for energy) as well as gas. Gas production is normal. In fact, a horse who has sufcient forage will often develop a “hay belly.” This is not fat, but rather, evidence of healthy gas production. Horses produce tremendous amounts of gas, which is why they atulate a lot! But, if the gas doesn’t adequately pass through the large colon, with all its twists and turns, it can build up. And there you have it – gas colic. Here’s what we know so far: The exact reason for gas colic is difcult to assess, especially since most forms of colic involve some gas accumulation. But in general, gas colic can be caused by: • Inadequate forage consumption • Stall connement • Stress • Ulcers • Intestinal inammation • Inadequate exercise • Dehydration • Changing forage sources too quickly • Introducing new feeds too quickly Gas colic is common because of two widespread practices: 1) Limiting forage disrupts proper digestion. Horses require forage to be available 24 hours a day, all day/night. Not that they actually eat during the entire 24 hours, but rather to simulate a natural environment where they can graze on forages as they wish. When they know that forage is always available, they slow down their eating, take time for a nap or socializing, and come back for more when they are ready. If this basic, foundational instinct is not met, the horse releases hormones which can create muscular spasms and interfere with the normal functioning of the digestive tract. On top of that, hormones become out of balance, leading to inammation of the hypothalamus, insulin resistance, obesity. This is not the focus of this article, but I encourage you to read more about it. When there is insufcient forage, the stomach accumulates acid, creating pain and mental discomfort. When the hay nally arrives, the horse will gorge himself, eating quickly and every bit in sight. He won’t chew as well, resulting in large amounts of undigested feed reaching the microbial population, resulting in excessive gas production. www.MIQuarterHorse.com

Forage restriction also leads to ulcers anywhere along the gastrointestinal tract. Consequently, gas production increases because ulcers can interfere with digestion, allowing more undigested feed to reach the hindgut. Since ulcers can also bleed, blood ow to the large colon is diminished, inhibiting normal hindgut motility. 2) Conning your horse to a stall or small run/paddock reduces hindgut motility. When motility slows, gas cannot be expelled. The large colon is made of muscles which contract and relax in a peristaltic motion, moving digested material and waste products (including gas) along its length. When these muscles become “abby,” movement becomes sluggish, leading to intestinal distress (colic). Gas accumulates, the intestine distends and painsensitive receptors in the large colon are stimulated, causing your horse to experience intense pain. Blood circulation to the digestive tract is improved by moving around – simply grazing in the pasture, looking for the next tasty morsel, over the course of the day, will add up to to more exercise than giving a horse an hour working in the arena. Standing for hours in a small space is very damaging to your horse’s digestive health. And then there’s stress. There are literally thousands of studies showing the negative impact of stress on people’s health. Everything from irritable bowel syndrome, to heart disease, to autoimmune diseases, to obesity is impacted by constantly barraging our tissues with stress hormones, leading to a cascade of events that results in poor health. At the cellular level, the exact same thing is true for horses. Stress exacerbates inammation, which can damage any part of the body, but when the digestive tract is affected, the risk of colic goes up. Inammation leads to ulcers, malabsorption, water imbalance, visceral fat accumulation surrounding the intestines, and microbial ora changes, all creating a scenario for colic. Pasture turnout is the best way to reduce stress. Even a few hours each day will have a positive impact. If there isn’t pasture available, turn-out in an outdoor exercise area such as an arena (making sure there’s hay and water available) will reduce gas colic risk. Feed changes need to be slow, with a little help. The hindgut microbial population must have time to adjust to any new food, so make sure give your horse’s digestive tract time to make the transition. If you have to change hay every few weeks, an abrupt change of feed will put your horse at risk. Instead, do a little advanced planMQHA Journal • April 2017 • 49


ning and set aside a few bales of old hay, while slowly switching over to the new hay. You may nd yourself regularly blending old and new hays since it is best to take approximately one week to make the adjustment. While doing this, offer your horse a prebiotic containing bacterial fermentation products to help adjust to the new forage source. If you’re adding a commercially fortied feed to your horse’s diet to meet additional energy demands, make sure he already has some hay in his belly before feeding a concentrated meal. If you need to introduce a new product, take 2 to 3 weeks to safely change to a new feed. Beware of weekly bran mashes. A bran mash, or any new feed for that matter, if unfamiliar to the hindgut microbial population, can trigger a dangerous colic attack. If you want to feed a warm bran mash, consistency is key – it must be fed every day, not once a week. Be sure to introduce it gradually and since bran is very high in phosphorus, choose a commercially fortied version that has added calcium. Helpful Supplements In addition to a forage foundation, there are several supplements worth considering: B vitamins offer support for the digestive tract lining, as well as reducing stress. I recommend adding them to your horse’s diet prior to traveling or performing. Yeast: both live yeast and yeast culture, protect the immune system by keeping the hindgut bacteria in good health. Colostrum has the ability to heal ulcers, protect against the damaging impact of NSAIDs, and increase healthy cell proliferation. It also heals leaky gut, caused by cecal acidosis and excess fermentation of carbohydrates. Consider Clean Feeding You are likely familiar with the movement to change your diet to “clean eating.” This simply means reducing the amount of “junk food” in your life and replacing it with whole, natural foods, clear of pesticides, preservatives, and inammatory ingredients. In the horse world, there are two ingredients that we typically feed that are highly inammatory: sugar and soy products. Most commercially fortied feeds contain both of these. Since these feeds often contain preservatives as well, fed over time, they can have a major impact on your horse’s overall health. Slow Feeders May Be The Answer Slow feeder nets and containers are designed to simulate grazing. They must be kept full, or you’ll defeat your purpose. But when your horse knows that he will always have access to forage, he becomes calm and relaxed, rests more often, and walks away from the hay, knowing that it will still be there when he returns. In other words, slow feeders help your horse to “self-regulate” and eat only what he needs to maintain a healthy body condition. Change What You Can – every little improvement has an impact Colic is rare among horses who graze on large pastures, simply because of their easy lifestyle and consumption of fresh, nutritious grasses. My goal in writing this article is to set a high standard, for all of us to strive toward. Still, I am vividly aware that many, if not most of you rely on boarding facilities and are not able to offer your www.MIQuarterHorse.com

horse acres of pasture. But once we know where we want to go, we are better able to get there. Look into possible ways to increase outdoor grazing time. You may need to consider changing barns. Or perhaps your facility offers limited pasture turnout. Also consider using slow feeder systems in a stall at night so there is hay left over in the morning. In other words, the most signicant change you should strive toward is how to make hay available 24 hours a day. Every little improvement makes a difference, for your horse and for other horse owners boarding at the same location. You might just become a trailblazer! Bottom Line – Take control of your horse’s environment and feeding, by focusing on Nature’s rules to avoid gas colic. Remember, your horse is a grazing animal, requiring a steady ow of forage at all times. Feed him, simply, like a horse! Juliet M.

~ 2017 MQHA HALL OF FAME RECIPIENT ~

Ted Lincoln FREELAND, MICHIGAN

Our Hall of Fame honoree is a man that has spent nearly all of his 83 years of life caring for, planning for and showing the American Quarter Horse. Ted Lincoln and his father Floyd, bought their first quarter horses from Dr. Gerald O'Connor in 1962. They had decided that the quarter horse would be their choice for a highly competitive, tractable animal that they could build a bright future with. And building a formidable breeding program with national recognition is exactly what they did. Ted was named a 50 Legendary Breeder of the American Quarter Horse Association in 2015. Quite an achievement and one earned by very few breeding operations across the nation. He told the Quarter Horse Journal that receiving the 50 year breeder award was his Number One achievement as a breeder and owner of Lincoln Farms in Freeland, Michigan. The two mares purchased from Dr. O'Connor grew into a full fledged breeding program in the mid 70's with the purchase of Randy Nic Wells, a 1967 stallion by Nick W and out of Spotted Rose by Spot Cash. The Lincoln’s also purchased two mares from legendary breeder Hank Weiscamp: Elm's Music Maid and Skip Doll. Elm's Music Maid was by Sir Bar and out of Glamorous Music by Music Mount; Skip Doll was by Skipper's Lad and out of HJ Smoke Along by Holy Smoke. Ted describes his ideal horse as “one that looks good and can go out and do something.” He includes conformation, a good mind and a good temperament in his list of important characteristics. Ted is still breeding champions and showing world champion halter horses today. Lah De Dah, by Heza Stemwinder and out of his homegrown broodmare Millenial Princess won big across the nation. By Touchdown Kid, Millenial Princess has produced multiple winners and is one of the Lincoln family's current star broodmares. Lah De Dah was the champion junior filly at the 2013 Breeders Halter Futurity. Lincoln Farms has produced multiple world and reserve world champions, along with several All American Quarter Horse Congress and futurity winners. Through the years, Lincoln Farms has run as many as 17 broodmares at one time. Recently, the farm has downwww.MIQuarterHorse.com

2016 MQHA President, Tiffany Weitzel presents Ted Lincoln with his award at the Annual MQHA Convention on January 14, 2017 sized and currently has four broodmares. Ted says “the interest and desire is still there” and that the farm's objective remains the same: “to breed, raise, register and show the highest-quality horses that can be produced.” He attributes his longevity and success in the industry to his parents, Floyd and Dolly, who bought him his first horse when he was seven years old. His mother, Dolly, celebrated her 100th birthday in May 2014. Ted, as a businessman and a breeder, says that the American Quarter Horse “has provided a balance and purpose” to his life. With all of his achievements, Ted continues to show and win with young halter horses that go on to make their mark on the industry. This year Ted also will receive several MQHA year end awards for his achievements. He has also served two terms as Michigan Quarter Horse Association President and was a Michigan Director for ten years. As he reflected on his 50 years as a breeder, Ted said he looks forward to the future of the industry, as he believes it “offers opportunity for the discerning breeder” and that “there is room for the quality, small breeder.” He says that America's love of horses is still going and that he plans “to stick around just to participate and enjoy it.” Ted Lincoln sets the standard for us all as he remains vibrant, engaged and continues to win the major halter competitions across the nation. We are honored to have Ted Lincoln join the Michigan Quarter Horse Hall of Fame. MQHA Journal • April 2017 • 52

Tailored To Taste

This beautiful red mare with a big white face was mother to eleven foals with three world champions and five reserve world champions among them. She also produced numerous champion and top ten honor roll horses. Tailored to Taste, is a 1971 mare that spent most of her life having babies for the famed Toteff and Evans farm, breeders of Mr. Conclusion. Tailored to Taste was a daughter of Eternal Dell and was bred by Sally Davidson of Alachua Florida, nearby to Carol Harris, owner of Eternal Dell. She was bred to a long list of distinguished stallions including Win or Lose, Te N Te, Top Vantage, The Continental and Skipa Star. But when she joined the Toteff and Evans broodmare band, she found her niche. An amazing 50 world show qualifications were noted amongst her babies. That's 50 times one of her foals was invited to participate in one of the then two AQHA world shows! Her foals earned an all time 662.5 open, 218 amateur and 328.5 youth points. She had 5 halter point earners, 3 performance point earners and 4 superior halter horses. Three of her babies earned 5 world championships and 5 of her foals earned 7 reserve world championships. We will mention just a few of her great foals here: I Can Handle The Heat 138.5 open halter 33.5 amateur halter 61 youth points 1991 Reserve World champion youth aged gelding and Champion Aged Gelding at the Open and Amateur World in 1989. He was also the world champion two year old gelding in 1987 and champion youth world and reserve champion Open in 1986. He earned just under $5,000. Can't Beat The Heat 113 Open Halter 54 Amateur 119.5 Youth Halter points with double superior awards He was also reserve champion at the youth world show in 1988 and 1989. www.MIQuarterHorse.com

Award accepted for Tailored For Taste by Tom and Mary Robertson at the Annual MQHA Convention on January 14, 2017 The Neat Heat 302 Open 101 Amateur 99.5 Youth Points He was a Top Ten Honor Roll Horse three times with a Reserve World Championship in Aged Geldings in 1992. The Neat Heat was the earner of $1600 and went on to successfully compete in a wide range of classes in the Equestrians with Disabilities program. Classic Conclusion 86 Halter 30 Amateur 44 Youth He was the 1983 Reserve Champion Youth Gelding and Top Ten in 1987. Classic Conclusion also had some performance points and earned roughly $700 in world show competition. Tailored To Taste’s other distinguished foals included Tailored To Win, Taste of Te, By Far A Star and Mr. Tailored to Taste. She was definitely a mare that made her mark on the quarter horse industry and the MQHA is pleased to honor her. Tom and Mary Robertson accepted the award for this great broodmare.

MQHA By Cat Guenther, Youth Reporter

Recently, I asked the Michigan Quarter Horse Association Youth Board the following questions: 1. What are your goals for 2017? 2. What are your expectations for this year? Lily Atkinson – “Trying to increase memberships and grow stronger relationships with associations/affiliates outside of MQHA including 4-H and NRHA. I want MQ to try and get more youth involved who might not have even known about the quarter horse circuit. I expect everyone on the board to try and make this year the best it can be and really embrace this year’s theme, Reach Out. I think this year we can reach out to all different youth.” Cat Guenther – “A major goal of mine for 2017 is to get more people involved in the assoc-iation and to form tighter connections within the MQHYA. I hope to increase engagement in activities and fundraisers that our youth host. I expect all the youth to contribute ideas and time in order to make www.MIQuarterHorse.com

our association a more welcoming environment.” Katherine West – “My goals for the 2017 youth board would be that the directors feel more open to share their ideas, and that we make all youth members feel welcome to come to meetings and participate. My expectations for 2017 are that we keep up the good work with raising money through our fundraisers, and have another successful year!” Elizabeth West – “Throughout the 2017 year, my goal is for the Youth Board to become a closer group that works well together. Also getting the youth active in the individual committees is another one of my main goals for this year.” Audrey Barnes – “A goal of mine is that I would like to see a good steady year with a lot of kids participating in the youth events. As treasurer, I would like to see our bank account grow to allow us to give scholarships, and pay all the expenses for world show and NYATT teams. I expect new members joining the current group to learn more about MQ.” MQHA Journal • April 2017 • 54
